43.) no case is going to work if your going to let your dog eat your phone that just sounds dumb to me. And it's a hell alot better then no case I have dropped my phone many times and till look new because of my otterbox On my iPhone 4S. While when I had my iPhone 4 with no case it was scratched to hell and had a cracked screen by the time I upgraded to my 4s
#77 yes you can buy that off of eBay for that cheap, that is also assuming this person knows how to take off their screen and replace everything that's damaged, it's probably more of a headache. I would insist on taking it to a computer store (not a Mac store) they usually will do it for 50 bucks and insure that it's done right
It's considered karma because instead of just politely declining the insurance he made a statement about how useless a policy is. I have to admit that I myself have done this once, and ever since then I have always bought the extra insurance when purchasing expensive electronics.
That's why you never take the chance with an iPhone. You can do that with a Nokia, not iphone
Today, I dropped my phone but its ok because I have a warranty.FML
24, Like a deductible? I know Verizon does that. Like certain phones cost like $100 to replace under those plans. It may be worth it for certain smart phones, but I know my feature phone that I had - before I had my current galaxy s3 - cost me only $49.99. So the $100 deductible to replace it was a bit ridiculous. I was like hopefully I find this fucking phone so I don't have to pay lol. Luckily I did :P But by then I had enough to buy my s3 so it worked out in the end.
Nope. Karma is about bad things happening to people who do bad things. I don't know if there's a word for stupid things happening to people who do stupid things.
Karma is about getting back whatever you put out. If you put out nothing but negative stuff into the world then eventually that negative stuff is going to come back around and bite you in the rear; hard. If you put out good into the universe then the universe will give you good back. It's not just about the bad.
I want to say YDI, anyone who owns $1000 phone should be able to buy a $25 case to protect it...
Everyone I know with an iPhone has needed a replacement more than once. Apple has made immense changes to the phone industry, but they only offer a single line of phone. There's no variety. I'll stick with Android, as well as Motorola phones. Proud owner of the RAZR for two years, the Droid X2 for three years, and the Droid RAZR Maxx HD into the foreseeable future. Anyhow, the reason people use contracts is to avoid dropping $1k at once. It's more expensive in the long run, yeah, but I don't want to spend nearly a whole month's salary all at once if I can avoid it. Also worth mentioning is that I'm very pleased with my service at Verizon, so changing services is never a concern. That being said, there are obvious benefits to buying a phone outright as long as you can afford it.
I've never had problems with the iPhone - neither the 3GS or the 5 (which I currently have). I'm pretty sure I dropped the 3GS about a hundred times in the 3 years I had it and the 5 around 15 times so far (cause I'm a huge klutz and I seem to have butter fingers) but have had no problems! I'd say the iPhone is pretty durable!
They *are* a huge waste of money. That phone should be covered under warranty no matter what else.
Warranty won't cover your phone for accidental damage. It only covers it if you purchase your phone with a technical issue (screen doesn't work, heat issue, lagging, etc) and even then, warranty replacements are limited to one every 18 months usually. In fact, if you send a warranty replacement back with any physical damage, you're looking at a bill for the full price of the phone ($600-700 for an iphone) Although I agree, insurance is a waste of money. It's cheaper to just get a replacement off Craigslist or something if your phone breaks. Or, ya know, buy a case.
That might be the dumbest comment I've ever seen. That's like saying you should be able to wreck your car and they should just give you a new one or you can break your tv and they'll give you a new one. And as far as getting one off Craigslist, iPhones hold their value. You're not going to be able to find one for even close to the deductible price.
92 - A car is different, the insurance is for anybody else involved in the crash. My extremely poorly worded point is that buying insurance for stuff like laptops and phones is a waste of money as most of it will be covered by warranty and the stuff that isn't can be avoided with a little care. Getting a case, not leaving it near drinks, etc.
Very true. When my phone was stolen I phoned up my provider and was given a new phone (and it was an good upgrade from my stolen one) for £60. Had I had an insurance plan I would've been paid a LOT more than that over the twelve months I had it. I also know people who HAVE paid for insurance plans but then the accidental damage or loss or whatever isn't covered and they have to buy a new phone anyway. Sucks that OP dropped it this time but overall I would still steer clear of them.
