    Default Can you transfer Apple Care + plan from 4S to 5?

    I know you can transfer your Apple Care + plan to a new owner if you sell your old phones, but can you transfer your Apple Care + plan to your new phone???

    No. AppleCare and AppleCare+ are eternally connected to the device for which it was purchased.

    I don't think so. I thought it was "phone specific". Transfer to new owner yes.

    Make sure you mention the warranty if you sell it though. It might net you extra $$.

    Nope. Plan is tied to the device which is why you can change the owner by not the device itself. Should help you get a couple more bucks for resale though to purchase the new plan.

    I'll probably go squaretrade since they are running a special for 65 bucks and their coverage include accidental damage that apple care doesn't.

    Apple Care + does cover accidentally coverage. It has since the 4S. It will cover up to 2 instances with a $49 deductible.

    Yup. That's why it went from $69 to $99.

    Actually...
    (ii) With Transfer From Original Covered Equipment to New Covered Equipment. You may
    make a one time, permanent transfer of the coverage under the Plan to a new Apple
    product that is owned and purchased by you within thirty (30) days of the Covered
    Equipment purchase. The new product must be eligible for coverage under the Plan and
    at the time of transfer both products must be covered under the manufacturer’s one (1)
    year limited warranty. Apple will issue a Plan Confirmation for the new product, which
    will then become the Covered Equipment. When notifying Apple of the transfer, you
    must provide the Plan Agreement Number, the serial numbers and Proof of Purchase of
    the products being transferred by sending or faxing, where available, notice of transfer
    to Apple as set forth in the section immediately above.
