    Mission Repair: $89 for 2 years of full coverage including accidental physical damage and no deductible

    SquareTrade is $99 for 2 years with $50 deductible for comparable coverage.

    AppleCare is $69 for 2 years but no physical damage coverage.

    Mission repaid seems like a no-brainer. What's the catch?

    The catch is, with Mission Repair, you also get to have the once-in-a-lifetime chance of supporting a Nigerian princess while being covered.

    Interested in your sources for that. Really trying to make decision on a protection plan. Where you dabbling in hyperbole or are they truly scammers?

    Well Mission Repair seemed like a good option until I read that you need to have thier crap screen protector on at the time of accident in order to be eligible for a claim.

    Also I don't see anything about coverage in the case of theft or loss, so no go for me.

    Good spot. Missed that bit of fine print.

    Nothing but great service from them. If something happens to your iphone, bring it in to an apple store, pay the 199 replacement fee and send WorthAve the bill. They take 50 dollars out for your deductible and they pay the rest of it.

    It says it takes 4-5 weeks to get your check...but I've handled 2 claims through them and it has never taken anymore than 1 business week (5 days). I insure nearly everything ive got with them.

    Theft and loss are covered but you need police reports.
