Agreement NOT of Good Faith

The agreement presented has a clear statement that Apple Care is inclusive of the deal. The agreement becomes tacit when reading it and seeing that What happens is the whole agreement falls apart and becomes a bait and switch, when customers realize they must pay $129 for something that is advertised as inclusive, and in fact is not, and should be optional. That is false advertising and is lacking good faith toward customers.
What blows my mind is that as obvious as what you just said is, there are masses of people just waiting around to defend Apple's right to screw over their customers. And most of them ARE Apple's customers.

I actually wish more companies would figure in "protection"

Being an ex Wireless employee of 8 years I would LOVE to see companies to figure protection into the costs. Many times people don't get insurance on a payment program because "I've never needed it before" then something happens and it is all of a sudden the store's fault they broke the device. How dare you keep charging me monthly for something I broke, I demand you replace it! OR they try to trade up a device during a payment program with damage are get all upset because "that crack across the screen shouldn't fall under not functioning." No matter how hard you explain it to a customer 9 out of 10 times they will come back and blame you for them breaking their phone.

We are required to have health insurance and car insurance...phone insu...

phone insurance is for dumb people !
125$ for insurance?
how often do you crack the screen ?
i rather take a chance and pay 200$ to replace the screen if i do crack the phone screen.

>>We are required to have health insurance and car insurance...phone insurance should be also.

You are a great example of exactly what is wrong with liberal thought.

I Did The Program

They didn't require the AC . They listed the option and I chose not to take it because the devices have 1yr coverage anyway and they allow you to upgrade every year.

Here's the problem.

AppleCare is good for two years, they will allow you to switch to the next bottle as it becomes available. Being next year this time. You just dropped $129 for a two year insurance on a phone which is tied to that phone. So next year, you have to do this all over again. Am i wrong in this??

Nothing comes for free. And nothing comes cheap.
