    I bought my wife a green iPhone 5C. Should I buy AppleCare+ or am I throwing my money away?

    AppleCare+ = $99 + first incident charge of $79 = $178. A new 5C for for out of contract = $549. I think it's worth it.

    I agree that it's worth it. I got it on my 4S (didn't need it) and just added it with my 5S order. If I don't end up using it I'm out $100. If I do it's obviously worth it. One way to look at it is $100/24 months is $4.16 a month for "what if" protection for two incidents. No brainer IMHO.

    Definitely cheaper than AT&T's 6.99/month coverage. You have it on the 5S. I'm asking about the 5C.

    @Europa, is this a correct replacement amount? I chose the non-contract price. Thx.

    Yes, a contract-free 16 GB 5C is $549.
