    Neither.

    With the way the iPhone 5 is built a screen replacement can be done in 10 minutes & for $35 in parts.

    Apple stores will be doing it in house for $50. I'll take that with fries please.

    I'm going with squaretrade since I bought my phone online from Verizon. Oddly, it didn't give me the option to choose applecare. Now if I want applecare, I will have to go to an apple store over 200 miles away to have my phone checked first.

    Better look at the complaints on this as well. Posted a link a day or so ago, and some liked it and some had issues with the company. Do a research first please....

    No you don't.. If you are over 50 miles as has been reported on this forum, you can call AppleCare + sales and they will sell you the AppleCare +

    800-275-2273 (AppleCare)

    I did some research and bought AT&T's insurance. (Not sure who underwrites it, maybe Square.)

    $7/mo and loss replacement > $100 up front.

    The deductible is higher but I want loss/theft replacement.
