    Check your homeowner's/renter's policy. Many policies cover electronic devices.

    I would guess that the cost of the iPhone would be less than your homeowners deductible.

    Besides, someone would have to steal my pants off of me or saw my arm off to steal my iPhone. Lol!

    Applecare is for a malfunctioning phone ONLY!

    NOT: Physically broken, lost, stolen, water-damaged, etc.

    Applecare is NOT insurance.

    Applecare+ does cover any physical damage up to 2 times per term with a 49$ deductible for a replacement phone

    No, it does not.

    Applecare + does. They are different products.

    He would only be referring to AppleCare +, as AppleCare+ is the only one offered for the Iphone. So, when you stepped in the thread and made the post, just saying


    "Applecare is for a malfunctioning phone ONLY!

    "

    If you were actually trying to help, you would have said that AppleCare is only for malfunctioning phones, but AppleCare only offers AppleCare +, which actually does cover broken, damaged devices, just not lost or stolen devices.

    No, I wasn't trying to help, just trying to dance a jig!

    But seriously, I posted because a lot of people bought AppleCare for the iPhone 4 from Verizon and found out after they bought it that it was not covered.

    I was unaware however that for the iPhone 5 the ONLY thing Apple offers in Applecare plus.

    I guess since "AppleCare" sans + is unavailable for the iPhone 5 or any other model, I thought the point was moot. The only thing offered for an iPhone of any designation is Applecare+ and covers accidental damage with a $49 deductible.

    I've been using Square Trade insurance for a while now and love them. The kids are always breaking their ipods and they have never given me a hassle about coverage. They do iphone too.

    home owners/renters insurance can cover electronic devices... i know from experience. my phone was stolen... deductible can be an issue, but remember you are doing replacement costs, and that can include fees etc that you man incur. The only question you need to look into is will it affect any insurance rate you may have.

    No. AppleCare & AppleCare+ are extended warranty programs. In order to receive AppleCare service, you must bring the iPhone with you to the store for exchange. Insurance will cover theft & loss, but won't necessarily extend a warranty. Be careful of the non-Apple services, they seem to have a hefty deduction. Also, if you have homeowner's or renter's insurance, that should cover the theft or loss of an iPhone; check with your agent

    Cheers !

    Applecare is NOT insurance.
    AppleCare+ (with the "plus") does, in fact allow for two accidental breakage repairs or replacements in two years.
    Each repair or replacement costs $49. So yes, it is kind of like a limited form of insurance.

    Plain old AppleCare (without the "plus") does not cover any accidental damage.

    AppleCare+ is the only option available for iPhone 5, so if you get it you're protected from manufacturing defects as well as two accidental breakage incidents.

    Here's a quote from the AppleCare+ page:

    AppleCare+ for iPhone extends your coverage to two years from the original purchase date of your iPhone and adds up to two incidents of accidental damage coverage, each subject to a $49 service fee.
