    so ive had my iphone since launch day. i wont bore with details but it got stolen tonight.

    so i purchased it with a cc in full with apple care as well.
    its at&t 64gb iphone 5
    i still have the receipt as well.

    do i go to apple for a replacement or to at&t?
    i know i have to pay what 250 or something along those lines? for another one. but i left a nice little message for whoever finds its.
    they were smart and immediately turned it off. i know someone has it because it had about 80% battery left. it wouldn't have died in 30 minutes i had it until i realized it was gone.

    they must have seen i had money and was like oh he can afford it =(

    Apple care doesn't cover theft. Only if you purchased insurance through Att.

    awesome. i was afraid of this. after a couple google searches. .


    do you know if at&t has implemented what they were doing in Australia?
    about if its reported stolen that it would be blocked off the network?

    like i said guess its off to my cc company that has lost/theft protection.

    They've at least been working on it. I'd call them to find out.

    just an update
    went to apple-no dice
    went to at&t no dice
    called mastercard and my bank. no dice. (they have warranty extension but this doesn't include lost/and/or stolen.)

    so i bought a new 64gb iphone 5 BLACK for full price 901 out the door.
    it is what it is.

    Normally theft is covered under a homeowner or renter's insurance policy.

    Only if it was endorsed on to the policy

    Guess it depends on your policy.

    Yeah actually it will vary by state. In my state of NV, smartphones can and only will be covered if endorsed onto the Renters/homeowners policy.

    You should call Apple and tell them about the theft. They've begun to implement a database of stolen phones through serial numbers. I've had my serial number checked every time I've gone to the Genius Bar which never happened before. I believe in order to make the report you have to report it to the cops and then call Apple. This way if the ***** tries to get warranty service Apple will do whatever they do.

    Here in MA just to get the phone paid for you need to pay the $500 deductible or sometimes up to a $2K deductible.

    Sometimes its easier just getting a phone off craigslist. Lol

    Usually there s a separate deductible for things you endorse. For example, here it's typically a $0 deductible. Bad thing is its a claim on your homeowners policy. No bueno.
