Just had my 2nd replacement phone via the Apple Store ( on an orange 24th month contract) )
Apple give me warranty until its a year old (22nd oct 2012) and orange then warranty the 2nd year, apple want £61 for a years coverage, is it worth me buying this ?? Orange tell me if my phone goes wrong they will send me a new one ..
Even if you have apple care, if you need replacement, they charge the price of the phone to your credit card until they receive your current one. Or you send them your phone and wait up to 3 weeks to get a replacement. I know this first hand and I live 1300km away from where it comes from. No more than 3 day travel via currier
And orange also charged my friend £50 for replacing the iPhone on top of £12 a month, if you got apple care and you can take it back to the apple shop I don't think they charge you like orange do, but not everyone lives close enough to a apple shop
