    My iPad 2 will be in today or tomorrow and I'm sure they are going to ask if i want the apple care thing. Is it worth it or a waste of time. I have owned five iPhones and mainly because I broke my first three iPhone 3G, one iPhone 3GS, and I currently have the iPhone 4. Not sure if having the AppleCare would have covered any of those, but I usually don't waste my time with warranties because I don't feel like dealing with customer service and their sometimes lame answers. What do y'all think?

    Ya know, you have the money... sure but if you don't and want to take chances... no.

    If it was a 3000 led TV, I would get it for sure but for a 500 dollar item, I don't know.

    Sorry I couldn't be more helpful.

    It's better to have it and not need it than need it than not have it
    I don't get the insurance on my phones because they send junk to replace the junk but just a battery replacement alone costs more than the Apple care

    Applecare for iPad

    Depends on how much spare cash you have. I think it's grotesquely over-priced, but have it on all my iDevices simply for the no hassle aspect in case something goes awry.

    On the other hand, I've never had to use it. Apple makes pretty reliable stuff. If it doesn't fail in year one, it's unlikely to fail in year two.

    That being said...something new will come out by the second year and I will probably just upgrade to it. I just thought about that. Thanks

    Think I will pass on it as usual.

    No insurance is worth it... Until something happens and you need

    I use squaretrade warranties. Using a coupon code I was able to get a two year extended warranty with accidental breakage for my iPad for less than the AppleCare plan.

    Didn't get it either. I figure if I have problems with this iPad within the first twelve months, then I will buy it and extend it out. Otherwise, no.
