OK, I was playing Amazing Breaker at work, was semi-frustrated, and quickly put my 4S down on a notepad by the machine I run. I thought it would stop like it has the previous 1000 times I've done it, but I watched it slide off the tablet and fall about 42" to the concrete floor. I was not happy. Picked it up, not a scratch. Thank you Seidio.

iPhone 4s Back Glass Only $29 to Repair
If you shatter the back of your phone, it is only $29 dollars to have it repaired by Apple. You can send it in or take it to your local Apple store. If you shatter the front it is $199 to repair. In those situations they usually just give you a refurbished phone. Of course if you have Applecare+ then it is only $49 to get a replacement. Since all of these figures are reasonable to me, I have decided to go naked! And I'm lovin every minute of it!!!

So I just got off the phone with Apple and they told me that they don't replace screens and it would cost $199 to swap out the phone or we could pay $99 for Apple Care+ for the phone and pay $49 to swap it out and save $50. Didn't expect to have to get him a whole new phone entirely. We have insurance through AT&T as well so I guess that would be another option but I think you have to send your phone away for that.
Does anyone know the differences between the AT&T insurance and Apple Care+? If they cover the same thing I'd much rather go with the Apple Care+ and not have to deal with AT&T. Also, AT&T insurance is $10 per month while Apple Care+ is $99 for three years.

I just have AppleCare, I know some people do both. It just comes down to your needs.
Hypothetically, if you need to replace a lost phone, AppleCare is 100, plus let's say $700 to cover a replacement phone. That's $800. AppleCare plus the AT&T insurance (which is about $7 a month) for two years is 268 ( insurance comes out to ~$168) plus a ~$150 deductible, which comes out to ~$420 for a replacement, and is less money up front.
So in the end, it comes down to what you can do. If you can afford to pay outright for a replacement as needed, then don't get the insurance. If not, the $7-10 a month may be better.

I watched in horror as mine fell down a flight of carpeted stairs, and bounced on a tile floor. Barely breathing I ran down the stairs, and the phone didn't have a scratch or a problem. I had a Seidio convert case on it which is mucho protective.
I never drop phones, never dropped my Iphone 4. I have dropped the 4S more than I want to admit to. I am careful as can be too.
