    I'm trying to decide between Verizon's Asurion coverage of my iPhone 5 and Applecare+. Apple's option is obviously the more affordable - $200 for two years of coverage and two replacements to Verizon's $560 for the same.

    However, Applecare+ doesn't cover loss or theft. I've never lost a phone but I'm obviously a little concerned about the possibility. I know you can use Find My iPhone to track it if you've lost it and you can make it worthless to any thief by contacting Apple and reporting it stolen, but you don't get it back.

    I've created a poll to see how common this is. Let me know if you have any advice.

    Thanks!

    Never lost a phone. But I'm going to end up doing applecare and amex warranty.

    I have the Otterbox Defender so I don't think it's likely that the phone will break if I drop it (with my old phone, I would drop it pretty frequently, but generally they weren't too high of drops). I am a little concerned about theft though. I think I might stick with Asurion.
