    Applecare+

    Advertisement



    Applecare+ kinda flew under the radar with the news of the i4s release. Starting October the 14th Apple will introducing Applecare+. In the past i have passed on Applecare because who needs their tech support and our device is already covered for a year right? Well with the new Applecare+ not only is your device covered for an additional year but it adds coverage for up to two incidents of accidental damage due to handling, each subject to a $49 service fee. It went from $69 to $99 but let's do the math. With Verizons Asurion insurance you pay $9.18 a month,that's $220.32 over the 2 year period. Also the Assurion deductible is $169 for 16gb and $199 for 32gb models.Lord knows how much it might be for a 64gb model.

    The caveat to this is you have to purchase it when you purchase your new i4s,so if you want it you need to get it when you buy.

    Check out SquareTrade warrantees. Cheaper and better coverage than AppleCare with a lower deductible.

    Use this link to get 5 bucks off a new warranty: http://squaretrade.extole.com/a/clk/30Tw4 Plus, you could win one of 50 iPad2s just by purchasing a warranty.

    Applecare+ is similar now, I guess. I think the big difference is Applecare covers only two incidents. I don't see such a restriction with the SquareTrade warranty.

    Then again, if you have more than two "incedences" with your phone, you probably don't deserve to have one!

    lol,exactly. i'm still on the fence whether i want to spend the $99 or not. i usually baby my phones.

    one thing i didn't mention in my original post...assurion does trump Applecare+ and square deal in that they will replace it if it's lost or stolen...but i don't think it's worth the extra expense.

    All good info. However, I'm going to pass because I won't have this 4S too much longer than a calendar year, hopefully. Just until Apple drops the i5, or i4S2 or whatever they decide to call it. Who knows, maybe I'll try another one of those android phones-not.
