    My friend says you can buy the applecare after the one year original warranty is up. True? Here is the conversation:

    ah i see...too late for applecare tho
    y
    i can renew it anytime within 3 years of purchase
    says where
    renew? you never even purchased it!
    says the genius bar
    renew/extend
    nope can only extend within one year of purchase
    applecare extension is only 2 years to your 1 year that you get when you buy the thing
    yeap
    nope because applecare is 3 years total from date of purchase and is not prorated
    so they make more money the longer you wait to buy it
    even so, you can't get it after one year from original purchase
    but I was told by Glendale Apple that as long as its within the 3 years of purchase I can get applecare or procare. Because when I was there getting my macbook serviced someone was getting his ibook fixed and he bought procare well after his 1st year

    lol not enough responses in that thread
    don't look!
    point it out on apple's website
    i am looking at it now and it says nothing. So if I bought it online Apple would have to legally give my money back
    never says anything about it on the apple website
    " •
    • You can purchase the AppleCare Protection Plan anytime within the one-year limited warranty period. Your eligibility for coverage under the AppleCare Protection Plan starts from your hardware purchase date."

    You've told me this before and I believed you
    but it was wrong
    now I can't buy applecare anymore
    why dont you call applecare
    it never says you cant after your one year period
    it just says you can and it wont effect your one year period
    You're the only one that seems to think this is true!

    You're like Galileo saying the Earth is round
    when everyone is sayinf it's flat
    Why don't you just call applecare
    I was told by an Apple employee that it made no difference when I bought it
    because it really does make no difference if they are going to warranty your **** for 3 years max from date of purchase
    you gain nothing from waiting and they gain more for you waiting

    Not sure...

    Seems like an Argument Best Solved by talking to APPLE :apple:...

    Perhaps like a Glass Policy on a Vehicle w/ some Insurers, you may be required to have "the Vehicle" inspected to allow it to be Insured after the One Year Period is up...???!! That would mean No Goofy "Buy IT Now That It's Broken" sort of Deals!! :cool:

    I would have waited to Buy a Policy til needed if I didn't Crash My Car into a tree too!! :D

    Nope, Apple doesn't budge on this. You won't be able to register the AppleCare to your computer's serial of the DOP was over a year ago.

    I wish it could be bought after a year but agreed Apple does not entertain customers after the first year is over.

    Let me fire up Common Sense 2.0

    I let my 1 year warranty lapse.
    My computer takes a dump.
    I go buy AppleCare and expect Apple to pay for the repair.

    :rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes::rolleyes:

    Then I am sad...my friend is trying to be a lawyer too...

    That's what I thought also! It makes absolutely no sense! Sigh...despite this I still listened to him because he said an employee told him so.
