Lil different than an iPod. Thanks for the link bought mine.Spamming your own website is against EIP rules
here is the link direct to the Apple store
$70 for two years.
Hmmm, how does that compare for iPods? Seems kinda high.
You are correct. If you believe version 2 will be out within a year from the date you bought your iPhone, there is no reason to buy Applecare at this point as it would have no effect on your current warranty.I don't think it's worth it if you plan on upgrading to iPhone v2, which I think will come out in a year. If you plan on keeping it for 2 yrs no matter what then I would get it. Also remember that you have up to a year to get it and I don't think it affects your one year warranty at all so I would wait regardless if that's true (I haven't read it over so correct me if i'm wrong)
yes I know about the Amex thing, but it's good to be reminded.For those of you who purchased your iPhone using an American Express Card, you may get a free 1 year extension on the manufacturers warranty. I used my Blue card, and I know that I got a one year extension for free, making the Applecare pointless. The Amex warranty tends to be good, when I had my battery for my laptop fail, they replaced the battery...and my other family members have had similar experiences. I also know this applies to my Amex gold card. So its worth checking for people who used an Amex, before purchasing the Applecare plan.
Hope this helps
Ya, the Amex thing applies to almost anything, so long as it is under $10,000....plus you have 90 days of damage/theft/accidental loss coverage from the date of purchase....and they will take it as a return for up to 90 days!yes I know about the Amex thing, but it's good to be reminded.
When I bought my iPhone I wasn't sure I was going to use it for businesss, so neglected to use my Amex gold card (at the time I wasn't sure I was even going to activate it with AT&T). I could have used on of my Amex cards but wasn't sure the extend-warranty thing applied to them.
Well now I wish I did use my Amex card. I bought it at an AT&T store... I wonder if I can return it, but not really return it, just change CCs--without getting hit with that restocking fee.
Dayum, sure hope I can swap CCs!Ya, the Amex thing applies to almost anything, so long as it is under $10,000....plus you have 90 days of damage/theft/accidental loss coverage from the date of purchase....and they will take it as a return for up to 90 days!
Do I have this right?
This service provides nothing more than an extra year on the warranty, and an extra year of tech support?
It doesn't cover accidental damage, such as dropping and whatnot?
If true, for nearly $6 a month it doesn't seem worth it (you are really only buying one year). And for the life of me I don't see why you'd order it now... Yes I do, they actually extend your contract for another two years from when you start this service! Is that true too?
I'd rather some sort of insurance, even with a deductible, that does cover it if lost or stolen, or damaged by accident (like I have with Sprint). Anyone know where to get that? (I'm going to see if I can do something with my homeowners policy.)
Apple will, at its option, repair or replace the affected Covered Equipment, if
(i) during the Repair Coverage Period there is a defect in the Covered Equipment’s materials or
workmanship or, (ii) during the Coverage Period, the capacity of the covered iPhone battery to
hold an electrical charge has depleted fifty (50%) percent or more from its original specification,
(after being fully charged and the covered iPhone playing audio or video with all settings reset).
Got it (I misread it).Yes, it is just an extension of the manufacturer's warranty and does not cover any type of accidental damage, theft, etc.
Purchasing Applecare will have no effect on your AT&T contract.
I just read this on the Apple Care page on the Apple website:
"Special Instructions for Residents of Alabama, Connecticut, Nevada, and Wyoming
Apple is not authorized to sell the AppleCare Protection Plan for iPhone to residents of Alabama, Connecticut, Nevada, or Wyoming. If you are a resident of Alabama, Connecticut, Nevada, or Wyoming, please do not order the AppleCare Protection Plan for iPhone. If you submit an order that includes the AppleCare Protection Plan for iPhone, Apple will remove it from your order, notify you about the removal and process the remaining items on your order."
There must be a reason for this but I can't imagine one.
