    Hi everyone, i have a question in regards to the Apple Care (@70$ for 2yrs) and the VzW mthly total equipment coverage for $10-$11. mthly charge. My hubby and daughter are both moving to iPhones on Monday, and I'm really considering doing so myself

    Now, from what I understand, they are both pretty much the same coverage, EXCEPT under Apples insurance, if the iPhone gets water damage, cracked screen, their insurance will not apply, so basically its only for mechanical issues, where as VzW's will cover mechanic, water, physical damage overall. So taking VzW's insurance at the mthly fee is a better idea?

    I did call VzW to have a rep explain it, and this is what i got out of it. So what i'm asking is from the iPhone users, if you could please LMK if I understood this correctly and having the $11 total equip coverage from VzW will be enough?

    Tyvm for any help-greatly appreciated

    You might want to talk to an Apple rep about this as well. From what I understand unless the phone is in unidentifiable pieces the most you would pay is $200.00 for a replacement. I think an Apple refurb would be better than an Asurion refurb. The only advantage I can see for the Verizon plan would be if you lost or had your phone stolen plus Apple Care is decidedly cheaper in the long run.

    Either way here are links to both products.

    Damn can not post links yet.
