I just dropped my Verizon Tec Insurance for Applecare+. Good decision?
The Verizon insurance is around 11.99 a month, plus a $169 deductible, if I have to have the phone replaced. Applecare+ is $100 for the two years, covers two accidents, and is a $49 deductible. The only thing that I think is better about the Verizon insurance, is it covers the phone if it is lost or stolen.
I have my phone with me at all times, so hopefully this isn't an issue. Did I make the right decision? It seems like that I will be saving a lot of money with Applecare+. A $169 deductible, along with paying 11.99 a month is ridiculous expensive, when you add it all up. Did you choose Applecare+, instead of the carrier insurance?

I got my AppleCare+ added today when I called in to Apple Support. Now I have to ship back the original AppleCare I got from Verizon (get my refund) and cancel the insurance. Another $12+taxes a month saved which is definitely worth it.
Since I got the Twelvesouth BookBook case (wallet/case) I certainly won't be letting my phone out of my hands.

I have the insurance as well, but do you get regular AppleCare with the insurance, or is that purchased separately?
