My ethernet port recently stopped working so I called Applecare (I still have more than a year support left on my policy). I told them that I could not connect to the internet after the storm. Phone support could not help me so they scheduled me an appt. the next day at my local apple store. I went in there with the attitude of let me tell you everything I can say to help out... BIG MISTAKE! Once I mentioned storm or lightning he shot to the back for verification on electrical surges from his manager. He came back out and told me that AppleCare would not cover my damaged iMac because it was an act of God. I said prove it, he already reset the pram settings and did determine that it was most likely the logic board that went out. When I got home I typed in my serial number and looked up specifics on my AppleCare Protection Plan for Mac, especially what is NOT covered. (ii) Damage caused by (a) a product that is not the Covered Equipment (b) accident, abuse, misuse, liquid contact, fire, earthquake or other external cause, Now before people start saying "but other external cause is an Act of God", let me point you to AppleCare Premium Service and Support Plan which can also be found in the Apple - Additional Legal Rights for Consumers on the Apple Support Page. Under the Premium Service and Support Plan Policy, the plan does not cover: ii. Damage to the Covered Equipment caused by accident, abuse, neglect, misuse (including faulty installation, repair, or maintenance by anyone other than Apple or an Apple Authorized Service Provider), unauthorized modification, extreme environment (including extreme temperature or extreme physical or electrical stress or interference, fluctuation or surges of electrical power, lightning, static electricity, fire, acts of God or other external causes; Notice how Apple threw in Acts of God. What is an act of God when they already have "other external causes" written in there. Also notice how they go in depth on lightning, surges, and static electricity. Since my policy (AppleCare for Mac) lacks the in depth wording about storms while other AppleCare Policies do not (AppleCare Premium Service and Support Plan) do you think I have a case against Apple? It was a horrible experience and for the manager telling me no based on an act of god really bothers me. I packed my computer up and left the store immediately and now that I have read the scope of MY POLICY with my Serial Number of my iMac from the support page I am really pissed! Has anyone had the same experience of them trying to reword their policy to fit their needs first? If anything, wouldn't you think the AppleCare Premium Service and Support Plan would be the plan that would not have electricity or act of god mentioned in it, while the regular plan (mine) would not????
