    Question Sprint's insurance plan

    Hypothetical, if I get water damage on my iPhone would Sprint make me pay a deductible for a new one or would I be SOL? I have AppleCare+ but they don't cover water damage. I just want to make sure I'm covered if anything ever happens

    Apple Care+ does cover water damge with a $50 deductible. Regular Apple Care doesn't cover water damage.

    I am 100% positive it does. You can view the terms of AC+ in the Apple app under Apple Care +.

    Thank you very much for clarifying. I can now stop freaking out if anything happens. I'm glad to know I'm covered

    Yup anytime I have AC+ as well. I bought it since it covers breakage and water damage. It just does NOT cover loss.

    This is correct, Sprint has no insurance for the iPhone.

    Yeah, Sprint won't even look at an iPhone needing repair. Must go to an apple store.

    I'm partial to Squaetrade warranties. They cover drops, water damage,whatever...
