Square trade VS Apple Care +
Well this is a little unorthodox for a first NS post but, I just got my iPhone 6 today and looking for some extended warranty help/insight/suggestions.
Being that these things break (everyone knows how frustrating a cracked screen is), and being it will ride in my ski jacket all season jacking those chances up, do any of you have any experience with Square Trade warranties or apple care plus for iPhones.
Any Pros/Cons, experience making claims with either, or anything would be tight, Thanks!
applecare dude no question
1. Buy 2 protection plans
2. break phone
3. Receive 2 phones
4. Sell 1
I've never even heard of square trade.
go with applecare
Neither. Never buy extended warranties, they're a waste of money. I fixed by broken iPhone 5 screen with a $79 replacement from ebay, it's not a difficult fix. Businesses wouldn't offer them if they didn't think they could make money off of you with them. Really the only way you could irreparably damage your iphone and make the coverage worth the money is if it was submerged in water, and even if that happens you could still luck out and have it continue working. Seems like a waterproof case would be a better way to prevent that anyways.
I use Apple Care. My iphone 4s has taken the ultimate cashout each year in April since I got it, so I just take it to my service provider and then I get a brand new 4s, so it's honestly not a bad deal.
