    I figured in the long run it’s cheaper than Verizon.

    can't go wrong with AppleCare, unless you lose your device

    AppleCare comes included with TMo's insurance and includes lost or stolen, so I just went that route.

    I just don’t buy any iPhone without AppleCare since the 4...

    I too took the Apple care plunge and have been since purchasing my first iPhone outright which was the 7 Plus. Before that, I’d only buy second hand iPhones that have AppleCare.

    If I were buying 2nd hand I'd get ones that had AppleCare (it's transferable in most cases). But that's just me

    Bought Apple Care on 11/11 for my 8+. I've owned iPhones in the past but always multi-hand buys. Good for the next two years. If I decide to upgrade sooner, helps resale.

    I edited my post after reading your quote. Definitely meant that I only buy second hand devices WITH AppleCare.

    I’ve never had AppleCare before. I used to have Verizon’s insurance but realized that’s a ripoff because the deductible alone is outrageous so I stopped buying it. They get you with the “it’s only $5.99/month”

    I can't do an Apple product without Apple Care. The device cost a fortune, why not protect it properly with the right 'people'...

    Verizon is definitely a ripoff - $33/month for 3 phones! Cancelled that (stuff) immediately. Everyone on my plan has cases & screen protectors on their phones, and we've got a shop nearby that's fantastic when it comes to replacing broken screens, ports, etc. Cheaper in the long run to pay as needed for repairs, and have them done while-you-wait, than insurance and delays getting the phone fixed IMHO.

    I have both AppleCare+ and insurance through T-Mobile because AppleCare+ doesn't cover loss or theft. Yes, I'm paying twice, but at least I know I can get a replacement if I lose my device.

    And AppleCare+ is totally worth it. I love knowing that if I damage the screen on my device, I can just walk into an Apple Store and they'll take care of me right away.

    Always remember that you can buy a device that has Apple Care from someone and that person can easily turn around and remove it to get their pro-rated refund. There’s not really any “transfer” with Apple.

    I sold several iPhone with AppleCare and never asked for a refund. My word worth more than a few dollars

    I have AT&T I had my IPhone X since November 3rd. Can I still get Apple Care? Do I call Apple or AT&T? Thank you.

    Hmm, I didn't know that. Plus, I've asked many times to transfer my Apple Care from device A-to-B, and they never offered the pro-rated option. Well, at least I now know. Thanks...

    Yes, and you can get Apple Care from AT&T OR directly from Apple.
    If from Apple, they will have you perform some steps to confirm your device hasn't got any water damage, then send you a link to pay for it...

    Thank you, what is the monthly charge for Apple Care for the IPhone X?

    I’m sure. But the next person may not be as honest as you are. All I’m pointing out.
