    I guess I should have asked this question beforehand: I have my iPad up for sale on eBay- it closes today. I advertised it as coming with the Apple Care Protetion Plan that I purchased with it.

    Is this plan transferable to the new buyer? Or is limited to the original purchaser.


    Thanks

    Its transferable, and generally you don't need to do anything.

    If the buyer wants it under his name, there's a process to transfer it, but its generally tied to the machine.

    Cool thanks. One more question- is it ok to black out my name that is on the paperwork? I don't really want some random person to have that information.

    I've done that myself at the behest of the buyer of what ever I'm selling, but I've also read that folks haven't needed to go through those motions and in fact apple doesn't usually check who's name is on the apple care but rather does the device have apple care in the first place.

    I would not black out your name. If you are selling through eBay they will likely know your name anyway via PayPal. Worry more about reformatting your iPad and making sure no credit card info is on your paperwork.

    This is a straight up legal sale with the right of the buyer to use your remaining warranty.:rolleyes:
