    Hi!

    So here is the case. Friend bought me the new iPhone but it had issues so I went to the Apple Store and got it exchanged. As you know, the exchanged iPhone is under my name now so can I buy Apple Care ? I will want to keep the 4S untill it dies.

    Cheers

    Yes, you can purchase applecare for it at any time before the 1st full year of owning the device expires.
    Applecare+ is a different story, I think you have to buy it at the same time with the phone.

    Hold on. I didn't even know there was an Apple Care+. What's so fancy about it ? And according to apple.com I CAN'T get the + anymore since 2 days passed since the exchange. So ?

    You can get it, you just need the receipt.

    AppleCare+ is for iPhones. Don't know what to tell you about the exchange, but I added applecare+ a week after I bought the iPhone 4S. Have to call the number.

    Well that's the point of the topic. I do not have any receipt. I only have an email from Apple to confirm that the new iPhone was replaced under my Apple ID so theoretically it is mine now, right ? Can I buy Apple Care only with this mail ?

    Can I buy Applecare + if I'm buying the phone via Vodafone (UK)? Or is this a Apple store only purchase? If so can you do it online?

    I thought care+ was USA only.
