    Anyone purchase an iPad Pro with Applecare through AT&T?

    Bought iPP through AT&T and AppleCare+ through Apple.

    I am seeing that now. Problem is AT&T told me AppleCare + was purchased and on my account. Found out, it was not and I am 20 days beyond the AppleCare + purchase time and Apple said if I could show they charged me, they would add it but I cannot find it.

    Was just curious. Nothing wrong with my iPP, I just want to get the coverage.

    What is the benefit of ordering through AT&T?
    I currently have a mobile share with ipad account.
    I want a new Ipad (possibly the Pro) and just switch that iPad "number" to the new iPad.
    So there isn't any need for a new contract.
    Any benefit going through AT&T?

    That sucks. Hopefully you won't need it for anything like a drop or outside of the first year. I tend to upgrade quite a lot so I buy AppleCare occasionally, which this iPP was one of those occasions. Waited a few weeks, but eventually purchased. Good luck. Do you not have the receipt for the iPP purchase?

    Just get the device insurance from AT&T, my wife got me mine from verizon and is insured even from theft.

    The only benefit would be paying on an installment plan.

    I got mine through AT&T and they allow you to pay it off over 20 months with no interest. However, I did not get AppleCare.

    You don't need an AppleCare+, AT&T can provide you monthly insurance. I got mine whenever I upgrade my iPhone or tablet.

    Just to update - it was a 45 minute phone call and 6 people later I was at the top, telling them what happened and the guy on the phone hooked me up with AppleCare + for my iPP. Cost $99 bucks and I am happy they made the exception for me. I was out of the 60 day purchase period by 20 days. I just wasn't aware of it.

    I am happy and feel better. I like AC+ because I don't have to deal with AT&T, shipping back, phone calls and blah blah blah. I got to Apple, pay my deductible and I am off. Works for me and I'm happy.

    You might want to look at a stand alone policy form an insurer for all risks; it may be cheaper ad cover more devices for one fee.

    This is what I did as well.
