    I would go with apple care for the iphone. its a little silly to have both, and the deductible for verizon it too high plus you can always extend your apple care after it is up.

    I went with the applecare with sprint because the TEP is not covering the phone.

    on a side note.. Sprint is offering the Applecare +. Here is part of my order :
    "Thank you for purchasing the AppleCare+ along with your iPhone."

    The tech support I've received with other devices is what makes AppleCare worth it to me. They've been incredibly helpful to me when I've had issues...

    I agree. I don't want to have issues with my phone and the applecare saved me 500 bucks on my harddrive crash on my imac. It was a great experience.

    This may be a dumb question, but forgive me. This will be my first iphone purchase. If you preorder through the carrier's website do they ask you about getting applecare? Or do you have to pay for that separately on apple's website?

    I got an email in the mail asking to add applecare by replying to the email. No reply back yet.. strange isn't it?

    One piece of information to highlight is that I pay for the apple car + in advance and I only have to pay month to month if I am on an insurance. Buy apple care if you have money right now or else carrier insurance is not bad option.

    PS: I brought applecare+ though

    I think we'll be getting AppleCare+. Apple telephone support is awesome!
    Agreed, one of the reasons why I always get Apple care for my devices.

    You might want to read a bit more. Other than damage coverage they're apples and oranges. Insurance != warranty. Applecare is really an extended warranty plus accidental damage. Carrier insurance does not cover warranty items. Read the details. Look past just pricing. Don't make assumptions.

    AppleCare + covers everything a normal phone insurance covers EXCEPT loss or theft.

    When I bought my 4S, I was told that I HAD to buy it at the time of purchase(apparently this is apple's new rule).

    Choose wisely!
