    I chose the more expensive option because i'm going to destroy this phone at least a few times. it didn't show up on the receipt though. does anyone know why this might be?
    I got that one too and it doesnt show up on my receipt with either.

    Applecare doesn't cover accidental damage. So if you drop you phone and the glass shatters you are SOL. Squaretrade covers accidental damage.

    Everyone just get an invisible shield. Won't change the look nor add bulk to your phone and will protect it pretty nice. I refuse to walk around with an otterbox on my phone. Seriously. I'll get the square trade warranty because I can always get most of my money back if I don't use it.

    It didn't show cause it is a monthly charge. I had asurion on my Droid inc that was roughly $8 and it took that off from features and added the more expensive iPhone option that I chose. It's fine with me cause ill be dropping $3 off my bill because the visual voice mail is free on the iPhone. So that makes up for the difference.

    Squaretrade doesnt pay for a lost or stolen phone????
    That's the only reason why I chose to stick with the more expensive Verizon insurance. Although I take good care of my phones, accidents do happen, and I'm probably in more danger of loss or theft than I am with damaging my phone.

    It's pricey for sure, but I will rest easier knowing I'm covered if something goes horribly wrong...

    I dont believe Sq Trade will cover loss or theft though

    I picked Asurion, but am going to try and cancel and go with Squaretrade. I'm not concerned with loss or theft. One phone is for my daughter and you should see how her iPod screen shattered after she dropped it. I need to protect her from a repeat performance.

    You know, I thought I would bring this topic back up. In the end, today, I did end up picking up SquareTrade. Given the coverage and price vs. Verizon's TEC, it was too good to pass up. They also have some other nice offerings on there where I might be able to insure some of my watches and things. Definitely something I did not know about...
