    Well, im fed up with applecare plus. When i get the iPhone 6, what warranty should i go with? I beed to be able to have the phone replaced or repaired if there is a hardware defect or it gets broken. What do you guys recomend?

    Why are you fed up with applecare plus?

    I'd look to squaretrade as an alternative.

    That is also my question. I find it to easily to be the best warranty. Walk in and walk out with a new phone in a matter of minutes.

    I'm also curious why you don't like AppleCare+. Generally the best warranty option is the manufacturer warranty option.

    If you have a software problem do you think a carrier warranty will help you with that? It typically turns into a run around.

    Apple Care isn't great but I love being able to take my iPhone into the Apple Store and be able to walk out with a new one when necessary without having to wait for one to be shipped to me.

    Hmmm.

    How many times have you damaged your phone or claimed hardware failure?

    I've always had pretty pleasant experiences with apple care. I found that different locations are a little different but I found my perfect apple store so I'm not fussed about finding another warranty program.

    Call AppleCare and explain the situation. They usually handle these things better than the geniuses at the Apple store.
