    Are we able to add this/buy this at any point? I initially took the TEP from sprint thinking I'd look at other plans, however it kind of slipped my mind lol. Anyone know if AppleCare has a time limit to purchase/add on? It just seems SO MUCH better :).

    The limit is one year.

    How long have you had the iPhone? You have one year to purchase Apple Care for a Mac, but you do not have one year to purchase AppleCare+ on an iPhone. You have to buy AppleCare+ at the time of purchase of the phone or go to an Apple Store within 30 days of purchase so they can inspect the phone first. They won't sell if there is any accidental damage.

    She thinks I'm hilarious because my Android phone was caught in a boot loop.

    No, that's not funny. You would have called me an hour ago if you had an iPhone if your phone was working.

    I called upon my Android brethren and they helped me solve my issue.

    :-(, thanks for the info, I've had it too long, I'm more of a case guy, (Add some bulk for my big hands) but it would have been nice to have the AppleCare to try out the iPhone in true naked fashion hehe.


    Thanks for all the replies!
