    I recommend you get Apple Care + or one of the numerous other insurance offers for your device. Accidents happen and it's helpful to the wallet to have to pay a fraction of the cost to replace a damaged device than to pay the entire amount again, in my opinion. I have Apple Care + for my iPhone and have no worries if it ever gets damaged.

    Comes out to about $5.80 a month for 2 years. If that's worth the peace of mind it brings, then yes.

    Just remember that insurance of any kind is offered because it brings the issuing company profit.

    The $5-$6 a month brings you a guaranteed 24 months of telephone support and confidence should you drop the phone.

    I'm always torn about buying it. Last year I broke down and bought it. This year I'm not so sure at $129 plus tax.

    agree with, " buy one or the other" Apple Care or Square trade, for myself have bought square trade for 8 phones, had to use it for one of the kids and two of the wifes, well worth it.

    I always pick up apple care bc $80 for a replacement phone if mine gets broke is a lot better than $199 deductible through Verizon. Though I also carry the cheapest Verizon insurance bc Apple Care doesn't cover lost and stolen

    If you can afford it, buy it. It's great piece of mind if nothing else. I have it for my MacBook Pro (and I've used it) and I have it on my 6s Plus.

    I shattered my 5s. Walked into Apple and got a replacement just 90 minutes later. I'd say it's worth it.

    You might look at Squaretrade as well. They have 1,2 or 3 year plans and also let you take it to an Apple Store for services.

    I think it's worth getting some kind of insurance as the phone will cost a bit to repair or replace and phones have become so important to our daily life. Apple card plus is expensive but definitely worth it. I bought my 6S + on launch day and then just closes my eyes on bought the apple care plus.

    Not if you live in an EU country, there's no point. In France for instance, according to French consumer law, you're covered for an additional 2yrs from the date of purchase of any Apple hardware. In the UK it's an additional 6yrs from delivery/purchase date. Other EU or European nations' consumer laws may vary but you still get extra coverage regardless, rendering AppleCare virtually unnecessary.

    Well apple care is for accidental damage. Warranties only cover manufacturing defects. If you drop your phone and break the screen or it gets water damage your warranty won't cover you but apple care will.

    True, though one would still have to pay a deductible with accidentals so it's not exactly a free replacement. I suppose I'm just careful when it comes to such possessions.

    Buy it. It only takes one accidental destruction for it to be worth it.

    I didn't. If there is a manufacturing defect, I can always have Apple replace it via the 1 year warranty that all US manufacturers provide. Otherwise, I just get it replaced via Asurion. There is a replacement fee, but it is cheaper than getting the Apple Care+.

    I usually purchase AppleCare+ for my iPhone. This year I decided it just wasn't worth it.

    I upgrade yearly, and have only had to replace an iPhone a few times (perks of having a young one)!

    I am with T-Mobile now and with their mandatory $10 jump fee they charge it already includes insurance in it as well. Also, with apples 1 year warranty on defects I should be good.

    Also the price of apple care + going up to $129 up front and $99 deductible was also a deciding factor in my decision.

    There is a monthly fee, but also a one time payment. I had to replace a phone and it cost $50. The monthly fee is to Verizon (my carrier).

    Right the monthly fee over two years is more than the $129 and to the best of my knowledge is like $200 deductible for an iPhone.

    Cheap peace of mind for a device that will be handled frequently and in and out of pockets.

    I pay $5.18/month (I don't have "Total Care", just "Wireless Protection"). That is $124.32 over a two year period.

    Actually, I just did some research. Square Trade is $4.18/month with a $50 damage deductible. Over a two year period that is $100. There is no loss or stolen deductible.

    You have a good point with that deductible though. That is just for iPhones though. Android, Windows, and Blackberry don't have such a huge deductible.

    Hmmm...

    I've never replaced an iPhone via Asurion before (just a Blackberry and a Note II), so I don't know about that fee. As for the monthly cost; I pay $5.18/month. That is $124.32 over a two year period.
    You pay $5.18 for an iPhone?
