1Do not buy if you reside in Florida

By Ali B

I purchased this product in June for my Ipod Nano that I purchased at the same time.
I registered it through the Apple website(a pain because you have to upload the receipt to Apple. Amazon sends the receipt in a format they don't accept so you have to convert it.)
Now today about 3 weeks later I finally receive a reply that they received my info and informed me the state of Florida does not allow them to sell warranties this way. I have to fax all the info to them and wait for a refund. Then repurchase it directly from their website or the Apple store.
RIDICULOUS!

5Great product!

By Ann

If you own a Ipod then you need this protection plan. In most cases if something goes wrong with your Ipod and you take it to an Apple store they will replace it with a new one. This plan is well worth the money!

1Could Not Regester with AppleCare

By R. Silvera

I could not register this with AppleCare for my I pod nano.
I tried 3 times after I had registered my I pod with Apple.
After carefully filling out all the required information, it said, "this product does not qualify".

1No reall added value

By jomebrew

It was very challenging to find the details of what is covered. Originally the Apple site simple said "Your iPod" but that is not the case. It covers additional support questions for a year and extends the manufacturers defect coverage for a year. It also covers the headphones and power/USB cable. None of which was worth it. What you really want is accidental damage coverage which is the most likely problem you will experience.

The plan is designed to make money for apple with very little incremental cost to them. ou are better off getting an instore warranty. Many Visa/Mastercard have an extended warrany benefit that extend the manufacturers warrant and covers loss or damage. It is probably easier to use an instore plan but is it worth 25% or more of the cost of the iPod.


I say Stay Away from the Apple Care plan!


Note: I purchased two plans and called Apple 4 times now. None of my problems have been "covered" and each time they tell me to go see a Genius at the Apple store.

5So... my 6gen 80 meg iPod crapped out....

By Clayton Cahill

What happened? The play spot on the click wheel seemed to have died. Luckily I bought the Apple Care protection for it. So it's a year and a half after I got the pod and noticed that it was still under Apple Care. Thinking that the RMA process would be annoying and time consuming, I decided I would short circuit the phone portion of the process and made a reservation at the Genius Bar in the Apple store in the local mall for the next day. I showed up, showed the guy my ipod and he agreed that the button was dead... Whereupon he disappeared into the back for a couple of minutes. I figured he was trying to get info on how to start an RMA on an old gen bit of kit... instead he brings out a NEW (or referbed, can't tell... it was blemish free, anyway) iPod, hands it over and tells me that the serials have been transferred and the remaining time on my extended protection plan has been transferred as well. All I had to do was go home and plug it into itunes.

Are protection plans worth it? Most of the time no.. but even so I'll still buy Apple's just because if it IS needed, it's so easy to work through. Ask others about the hoops that have to be jumped through for most extended warranties... The bother itself makes them not worth while most of the time. If they worked like Apple's, I'd buy them more often... and I'll always get the Apple flavor.

5A Simple Piece-of-Mind Warranty Extension for your iPod!

By David Michael

AppleCare has been Rated at the TOP in Phone/On-line Customer care, Product / Warranty Coverage, & Consumer Satisfaction, now going on 10 years or longer.
We are a Cross-Platform Business with Mac & PC Windows hardware, software and peirpherals, and while we spend most of our time dicking around with misfiring Window boxes, we have been very impressed with Mac Products (iMac's, MacBook's, iPhone's & iPods) for the last 6 years. Yes, they cost more, but they not only operate Flawlessly longer, and their 'Re-Sale Value' remains at the top, but, like my original 2004 G4 all-Aluminum 15", HD Wide-screen, MacBook, it remains Elegant, which I cannot say the same for the Dell's and HP's Laptops, that we just give away to our favorite charities.
That said, probably the number item that we have had to send in for Repairs or Replacement the most has been our ever-growing army of iPods, mostly due to Accidents, some due to either a battery issue, and have had only one (1) iPod with a hardware glitch.
* Important Coverage Point to Note is that this AppleCare Warranty, ALSO Covers the iPod, battery, earphones, and other accessories included in iPod box!!!!
* Apple makes it Painless to register and to check your Warranty Status, On-line, and gives you several Options, in handling any Product Warranty Issues.
* [...]... is a good place to start.
* Recommend that you buy AppleCare Protection Warranty on Amazon or any other vendor that gives you a better deal than Apple's home site.

    42 Years, not 3

    By P. Hartwig

    The following is an excerpt from Apple.com, regarding the AppleCare Protection Plan for the iPad, which can be easily verified on the Apple website page,

    [...]


    "For up to two years from the original purchase date of your iPad, the AppleCare Protection Plan gives you direct, one-stop access to Apple's award-winning telephone technical support for questions about using your iPad. And you get hardware repair coverage -- both parts and labor -- on your iPad, its battery, and included accessories."


    Some people are stating in their reviews that the plan provides 3 years of protection, which includes user damage. Neither the warranty that comes with the iPad nor the extended warranty covery user damage. The warranties cover defects inherent in the product.


    Nevertheless, I think that it is might be a good idea to get the extended warranty under certain conditions, such as the purchase of the 64GB with 3G that gets extensive use, especially for travelers.

    5Great ~ !!!

    By G. Choi

    I have ordered and received AppleCare Protection Plan for iPad in time - used Prime service and received it in 2 days!!!

    Registration code worked fine and process to registration for extra warranty coverage was smooth. Now my iPad is covered until 2012!!!


    I saved a good amount of money by purchasing AppleCare Protection for iPad from here, instead of Apple store and very happy about it~!

    1No hardware protection

    By S. Devarakonda

    I purchased an iPad 2 + Applecare protection.
    My brother's kid dropped the iPad and it had a crack.

    I took it to the Apple store in Reston VA. The "GENIUS" told me that, we don't cover hardware issues.

    The website says
    "Apple hardware coverage

    The AppleCare Protection Plan provides repair or replacement coverage, both parts and labor, from Apple-authorized technicians. Service coverage includes the following:

    - Your iPad
    - Battery
    - AirPort Express Base Station, AirPort Extreme Base Station, or Time Capsule
    - Included USB cable and power adapter."

    Guys at Apple Headquarters know that software will not have parts, labor and replacement issues. Only Hardware components have them.

    I'm assuming "YOUR iPAD" is included in repair or replacement and has parts and labor.

    Well, the "GENIUS" did not tell me of any Apple-authorized technicians either!!!.

    All he said was "If you booked using your credit card, you can get their warranty. Also, since you bought the Applecare protection plan, I can give you a new iPad for $279 in exchange for this."

    I then showed him the above "(in quotes)" Applecare Hardware Coverage. He did not have an answer for that.

    So in the essence, I'm paying $79 for any software malfunctions that my iPad might have. And being an owner of Macbook, iPhone, iPod (and now the iPad)... whenever I had issues with software for Macbook, iPhone, iPod, I was told it would be taken care of by Apple for free. And they did address software problems for free whenever there were problems. So why are they charging $79 for iPad software issues??? The "GENIUS" basically is telling me (us) that the Applecare policy is wrong.

    All I was expecting is replace the glass and I'm more than happy. And if I had to pay for it anyway, then why would I take the Applecare???
