    So I went to six flags yesterday and the unthinkable happened... my iphone 4s managed to fly out of my pocket during my first ride and landed within the track I know this because even though it fell it somehow managed to survive the fall. and i later was tracking it with the find my iphone app and its just sitting there in what condition who knows. So i reported it and sent a picture of where the phone is located to an email i was given. Now getting to the point assuming they don't recover it what are my options on getting a new iphone I did purchase the apple care plan when i bought it

    any answers are appreciated

    Wow! That sucks! Sorry. I'm sure that you didn't come here to hear that. Have you talked to Apple?

    Dang... Definitely try to get ahold of someone at Apple. Hopefully you can get it back from Six Flags. Would love to know what kind of condition it is in if you receive it. Best of luck!

    Apple care doesn't cover lost phones. Hopefully you can get it back even if it is broken. You can have it replaced for $50 with the applecare+.

    AppleCare is not insurance. Your option is to buy another one if you can't recover your existing one.

    If you don't have insurance on your carrier's account or third party, you just have to buy a new one full price. Applecare does not cover loss/theft.

    Seems like Applecare + isn't useful in a situation like this. I'm pretty careful with my phone. I don't let it out of my site. I'm sure you'll be more careful with it in the future. Good luck with whatever you do to get it replaced.

    Same here! I would have stood right beside somebody and bugged the crap out of them! If that didn't work then maybe a little anger and rage would have helped.

    good work. you always have to look out for scumbags in the world. the guy that took it obviously isn't very bright

    Although I would have waited it out and not left the park it wasn't an option I was told that even if i stayed it wouldn't make a difference they wouldn't check the until everyone was gone and I had my entire family with me and that didn't help if not I would've waited overnight at a hotel
