Here's the story. I bought AppleCare on E-bay, brand new, for my 17" uMBP. I got it, registered it to my laptop, and that was it. It said it was registered, and that proof of insurance would be coming in the mail. It never came, and I never thought too much about it since it was in the systems anyway in case I ever really needed to use / prove it. So, I called Apple last week because my speakers are being wacky, and I figured I'd just ask them about the AppleCare papers, couldn't hurt to have them just send me some proof papers or whatever while I already have them on the phone. So anyway, it turns out that the AppleCare is AppleCare for Great Britain, and since I live in the U.S. it won't cover my laptop, "which is probably why I didn't get the papers." Ok? Why do they make AppleCare for different countries? Why did it let me register it and it never told me it was invalid? I put my address and everything in there, you know? And why does the AppleCare box say nothing about a region? It does not say anything about Great Britain. (or any country for that matter.) Now it's too late to get a refund from the seller, and Apple is telling me since I don't live in Great Britain that it won't cover me. I don't understand though. Why wouldn't they tell me this way sooner? Why wouldn't the box say something about it if it was that big of an issue? Why do they have AppleCare for different regions anyway? Are there different restrictions or something? I guess I'm just out the 200 dollars then? I thought Apple had good customer service but this is my first experience with them and it's kind of ******.
