    Huh- I never thought about Best buy or Verizon's insurance plan.
    Since I bought it through Verizon and am waiting for it, do I just bring it in to a local Apple store to get it?

    hahaha- I'm scouring iMore and the internet for insurance and a case for a phone I don't have!
    You can also call Apple.

    When you get your iPhone 5S you have 30 days to add AC+. You can do this by making a appointment to have it inspected in an Apple store, or by calling 1-800-275-2273. Calling the 1-800 # will require you to run a remote diagnostic test and provide proof of purchase.

    I purchased AppleCare+ when I bought my 5s. I'm contemplating getting it for my MacBook Air as well. I got it for my 5s mostly because I purchased it at full retail price unlocked. While I try to take care of my devices, accidents happen especially with mobile devices. If an accident happens I'd rather pay the $79 + tax and get it repaired or replaced over paying the full $650 + tax for a new iPhone.

    I feel the Apple Care + for Macs is just too expensive, specially that the chances anything would go wrong with a Mac is really low.

    You might think that. So did I, when I bought my MacBook Air. What can go wrong, I thought. But I bought Applecare anyway. I was glad I did when, after just over a year's ownership, the solid state drive that "never fails" did fail, and had to be replaced. I always buy Applecare.

    Since we have the 5s and 5c, we decided to purchase AC+ for both. Also helps the resale value.

    I did. When I ordered my 5s on the 20th on the apple store app, I added it to my order.

    I'll probably get apple care just before my 1 year warranty expires.

    You have to get it within 30 days of original purchase.

    AppleCare+ for iPhone - Apple Store (U.S.)

    How to get AppleCare+
    Add it to your shopping cart during the checkout process when you purchase your new iPhone.
    Buy it within 30 days of your iPhone purchase. Your iPhone purchase date is the date we ship and charge you for your order:

    -At an Apple Retail Store (requires inspection of your iPhone and proof of purchase)
    -By calling (800) 275-2273 (requires you to run a remote diagnostic and provide proof of purchase)

    I got it for my 5S. If I don't keep the phone for over a year I just get a refund for the prorated amount. I've done this 3 times with Apple Care +

    I didn't bother getting it this time around. Really they will replace it for 200.00 if it gets broken, still more than AppleCare but I'm willing to risk it

    Yeah, that's what I'm thinking. I wish AppleCare had accidental damage coverage for the MacBook line since their portable, and moved around a lot.

    You might think that. So did I, when I bought my MacBook Air. What can go wrong, I thought. But I bought Applecare anyway. I was glad I did when, after just over a year's ownership, the solid state drive that "never fails" did fail, and had to be replaced. I always buy Applecare.
    Then I read stories like yours lol. It makes me worry that something like that'll happen to mine and I'll be out of luck without AppleCare or my non existent deep pockets to get it repaired without.

    That's what i am planning to do but have no idea how much i'll get back later on.

    Any rough estimates what'll you get in return at the end of the year?

    I do the same. Just got a $45 refund for the unused portion of my iPhone 5 AC+.

    For my iPhone 5 I got in November 2012, I canceled AC+ in August. Was 60 something dollars.

    45$! That's great. I am assuming you had your 5 on the launch day.

    He lied (or just had no idea what he was talking about). It's always been 30 days.

    Lying and not knowing what your talking about but giving an answer anyways would still be considered lying. So yes you got lied too

    It's worth EVERY PENNY. My iMac's hard drive AND motherboard died within the first 2 years of ownership. Applecare covered both as well as the power source that died like a month before AC ran out. Clearly I got a dud....
