Long story short, they were unable to fix the problem and I had to get a new iPhone. Luckily, we are still approximately three weeks shy of our one year iAnniversary (I made that up. Clever, right?) & I was able to get the new phone at no cost. Had we not been covered under the warranty, it would have been $200 for the replacement phone. Yikes! I definitely dodged a bullet there.
Unfortunately, the new phone is only covered by a 90 day warranty, which means from March to December I'll be whispering sweet nothings into my iPhone's ear and praying each night that it keeps working. I'm telling The Hubs to do the same, since his phone is still working (knock on wood) with our warranty deadline around the corner. It's too late for us to buy the extended Apple Care plan - you have to sign up within 30 days of your Apple purchase. I tend to turn up my nose at extended contracts - but now, in this age of technology, I'm starting to rethink that.
What's your policy on policies? Are they ever worth it?
