    True but that doesn't check for songs and scratches.
    Understood. It may well have to do with how "old" the device is. I purchased AC+ on my iPhone 5 thee days after I bought the phone - it wasn’t offered at POS, and I got an email from Apple... when I contacted Apple to purchase coverage, they made me run the diagnostic and called it good.

    AppleCare + can be bought anytime within 30 days of purchase. I almost always get it just because there is less hassle. This year though I'm thinking about skipping because I know in only going to have it until the next release. I always have an Otterbox too so it's not like I'm going to majorly damage the phone.
    That's precisely my point. You all know darn well we are going to run out and get iphone 6, so Apple Care isn't worth it IMO. I'm sure there are other benefits as well but Apple has some reasonable replacement prices at the Apple Store, even if it is your fault (ie, you drop it in the toilet).

    Both of the new iPhone 5s's that I ordered (5 and 7 minutes after they went on sale on 9/20) are on the UPS truck for delivery, today! UPS is notoriously slow in my neighborhood, so I'll probably not be unboxing until 8 or 9pm, tonight.

    What do you do with your "old" iPhone when upgrading? Having AppleCare+ can increase the resale value ... I would not purchase AC+ just for that reason, but it might be a deciding factor for some if they’re "on the fence".

    Apple has also increased the device swap out of warranty (either by age or for physical damage) to $269...

    I sell on Craigslist. I usually get $400 for the 16 GB of last years version. I had to bump up to the 32 GB this year because of taking so many pics and videos of my kids.

    Studies show extended warranties are not worth it in the long run. As long as you never buy them, you come out ahead.

    It’s clearly a personal choice. I am not advocating either way... simply answered a question and (now) responding to comments.

    I just turned it on, agreed to a few items, and it activated automatically. It asked me to verify my phone number is correct and that was it. I turned my old iphone 5 off and this one is now working as normal.

    Awe! At least someone is keeping it safe. The UPS man still hasn't arrived which is making me a bit nervous.

    My husband just texted me a photo of mine. He placed it on my desk to await my arrival. The UPS guy was going to leave it between the front and screen door, and he was sitting in the living room so he just went and got it from him. Once I get it all inspected, activated, protected and ready for use, I'll pack up my 4S for Gazelle.

    It looks silver in the pic for some reason. Probably because I took the photo with my LG G2.
