Take not if you have a warranty problem you need to take it to John Lewis to send away / sort. Not just drop into Apple Store as if it does get swapped via apple the warranty serials will change.

TBH Applecare is available for £20 on ebay, so I would personally do that route as you can get a much better deal on the Ipads, if you really want that 3 year warranty

Buy Apple only with extended warranty, ideally from Apple, otherwise reputable dealers like John Lewis. Avoid "deals" from random online retailers who don't understand their obligations as sellers.

I'll not be buying Apple again (yes, I was a fanboy). Having just experienced my iPhone 5S die 13 months into a 24 month contract, I was told by Apple to go away. I bought online from buymobiles.net. Yeah, avoid them too.

Isn't AppleCare just an extension to 2 years?

yes, but add another, so 2x £20 so £40.... JL are always top dollar on Apple stuff, so it is not a free warranty, far from it

That would put you off Apple.
I thought the new EU legislation meant you were covered under warranty now.
Is there nothing you can do?

You're exactly right. You can not stack Applecare. Extends iPads to 2 years. That's all.

This seems rather harsh. And rather illegal. Although to be fair more info is needed. Like what was the fault and dos Apple actually tell you to 'go away'.

where isn't approx 'normal price' on apple products?
are you referring to the amazon sellers who aren't VAT registered and based in China?

Very good deal by JLP that covers you peace of mind for three years by probably the most highly regarded retailer in the UK.

Accidental damage cover _not_ included but should be viable on your home content insurance if you have a reasonably low excess.

JLP will try and sell you accident damage cover, at point of sale, so get price for this over the phone from them & check your excess with your insurer and decide if you want the accident damage cover before going in store to pick up you shinny new ipad.

Thank you OP

Really, I love apple.
Managed to damage the internals severely of my iPhone during a diy housing replacement. Lines across screen, home button flex broken, chassis bent, charging port damaged and headphone jack too after trying to replace the housing.
I simply closed it, took it to Apple Genius Bar on appointment(ref: home button wasn't working) , and they replaced the phone then and there.

Had a look round and other than buying from someone i have never heard of 399 is the price anyone found cheeper?

made up for you to get your 4 year old iMac fixed.

I think the thing is JLP should cover the ipad for six years but you have to 'argue the toss' the 3 year no quibble will mean just that.

What broke on your iMac for apple to feel in was 'reasonable' to repair out of warranty free? and did they pay P&P or did you take to apple store & argue your point?
I find the store more helpful for out of warranty repairs than phone support, just my recent experience.

cheers

As the phone was technically purchased by finance on contract they have an obligation to cover the device fit for purpose during the term of finance. So this will be with your carrier.

This is of course assuming a component has failed rather than external or water damage.

Yes, I currently have a Section 75 claim pending with my credit card company. Failing that, I'll just proceed with a small claim. Buymobiles will fold either way, it will cost them more than the claim. Sales of goods act is ok when sellers actually understand their obligations.

Technically you are covered up to 6 years for defects arising from manufacture etc. Sales of goods,act gives you that.

But in reality, to avoid hassle, try get a reputable warranty in the first place. Or buy extended. Smart phone, smart watches, new tablets etc.. they are getting more complex with more to go wrong. Apple only give their phones 1 year manufacturer warranty, Microsoft 2 years and not sure about Samsung. Had I purchased from a network, I suspect they would have dealt with my claim (the screen backlight failed two weeks after 1year warranty "expired") within my 24 month contract. As I purchased from some fly by night jokers with a flashy website (buymobiles.net), I have to fight my way. Never again. I'll only buy from reputable dealers or ideally from manufacturer. Apple not so sure, I like my iPad, I like their products, but I can't actually do any work apart from looking busy writing emails. I have my eye on a Surface Pro to actually be productive on the road... "Work like a boss anywhere"

I'm sorry about your iphone 5C A1 Comms Limited or apple should sort this out for you.

I have always found apple to be great especially in store.

Have you spoken on the phone to apple and been fobbed off? or have you got a local apple store nearby?

I find the stores far more helpful.

Also have you written a letter to A1 Comms Limited owner Paul Sissons? If he owns a 100m plus turnover company he will certainly know all about the importance of customer satisfaction, that I'm certain.

But I would book an appointment with a local apple store (if possible) and speak to the manager.

You can take stuff back there within 30 days even if you've used it, so just give them a ring and they should give u the guarantee to save the trouble of getting yr ipad back and selling a new one
