    You pay $5.18 for an iPhone?
    I pay $5.18/month just for the protection plan. That doesn't include anything else like data and such.

    So I decided to dump Asurion and get the Apple Care+. I did the research and realized that in the worst case scenario it Apple Care+ is the better long term deal. Like Haalcyon says...stuff happens.

    I have had several Apple Devices, but have never bought Apple Care, or any insurance plan from the mobile provider. A one-year warranty is already provided and my credit card provider doubles that.

    I'm not sure how many people know this, and certainly the mobile providers will never tell you about it, but many credit card companies like MasterCard and Visa provide an extended warranty on devices purchased with the card.

    Of course, nothing is as convenient and all-encompassing as Apple Care, but I don't want to pay them an extra $100 or more per device. I decided that I can afford a replacement if a device conks out on me once in a while.

    I understand your logic. Did you know however, if you get a new phone you can transfer your apple care to that phone? Or if you have not used the apple care within the year you can cancel your warranty and they will prorate it for you. Thats what makes it a no brainer for me to purchase it every time. Just throwing out some more info

    AC makes complete sense to me knowing I get a partial refund if I rid of the device before the coverage period is up. Also, the accidental incidents are reassuring, nice to know that if by chance an accident happens I am not out $1200 and can get a replacement for $129.

    I have a $750 phone, before taxes, I don't worry about losing it, or getting stolen as much as it getting broken. The cost of AppleCare and the deductible is way cheaper than buying a replacement phone. Why not? Carrier insurance nope, I'd much rather be able to go to Apple and get a brand-new replacement as opposed to some shoddy refurbished phone.
