Preordered a 6+. I have come to terms with the fact that at some point in the not to distant future I will be looking down at my smashed phone. I think the curved glass will turn out to be an achilles heal. Anyway even if it does make it, I am one to hedge bets so here is the dilemma. Options are: A: do nothing If/when I shatter the screen I will be out $300 for a replacement from Apple, or will need to deal with the shady phone shop at the mall to replace my screen. If I lose my phone retail replacement will be $800 + tax Total cost over 2 years = $0 B: Apple care plus If/when I shatter my screen I can stroll into the Apple store, and stroll out with a fresh iphone 6 plus, for the reasonable price of $50. Coverage lasts 2 years, but lets be honest I will move on to the 6S Plus Plus whatever before then. Caveat is if I lose my phone goodbye $800 + tax Total cost over 2 years = $100 C: ATT protection plan These guys are crooks, and tough to deal with. However when my note 3 was caught in a wave, and utterly destroyed they came through, and I had a new phone overnighted to me. Ran me $200, but retail on note was $750 or so at the time. I have heard the hoops you need to jump through for a lost phone are a PITA, but better then nothing. Cost is about $10 per month, and $200 deductible. If/when I shatter my phone I'm out $200, and need to wait for them to ship me new one. If this happens on the last day of my contract I will have paid $450. If I lose my phone I file a police report jump through hoops, pay $200, and they (begrudgingly) ship me a new one. As someone who has lost a few phones in the past this makes me sleep easier, but then again it really adds up pricewise, and if it is a year from now I can always just bite the bullet on a new phone, or run my note 3 for a few months. Total cost over 2 years $240 what are you guys going to do, and why?
