AppleCare for iPhone £44 with O2 Priority Moments (instore)

72
Found 8th Oct 2012
O2 priority has 20% off accessories instore at the moment. AppleCare is included. Worked for me. Normally £61 from Apple.

PS. I know that you can try to argue that all items have a two year warranty under EU law, though Apple currently interprets this as being able to demonstrate a fault when first purchased.

I also know you can make claims under section 75 of the Consumer Credit act, but it's a lot of hard work.

Applecare is great for people who have iPhones and want things fixed/replaced quickly without any stress.

A service that o2 customers get. I thought priority was for concert tickets etc might be o2 moments that the OP is mentioning.

O2 customers can sign up to O2 Priority loyalty scheme o2priority.co.uk/ If you're not an O2 customer, you can always ask a friend that is to sign up and go in store with you.

I believe they won't do so if caused by accidental damage.

Applecare + does, which has replaced this in the USA but seemingly not over here.

does this cover you for when you simply want to upgrade the IOS and then lose all your contacts and the phone continually reboots??

To be honest whilst I loathe them its worth taking out, worst case apple proves they can scam you but your phone is protected. Best case apple lose and they give you your money back

IT does not cover you if you lose your contacts, or any data for that matter.

Any software issues (which is what you have by the sounds of it) can usually be fixed by doing a restore via iTunes.

It's just the same as having accidental damage on contents insurance in your house. You're effectively paying an insurance premium for your phone. How many people fraudulently claim? Mmmmmm

There are currently no lightning docking stations available to my knowledge. You will need the 30pin > Lightning adaptor to plug your iPhone 5 into a dock.

But, your iPhone 5 already comes with 90 days free telephone support, so you can always give them a call.

If i buy this from o2 can you add it to any phone not sure what the actual product contains? Im tmob but my dad is o2 so could i get it and add it on my phone?

yes, think of it as a warranty extension...they dont open the box and apply it instore, you can take it away and apply it to any device you like. EG if you buy it in tesco, you dont have to apply it to a phone purchased from tesco

AppleCare extends your warranty for another year after your initial warranty expires. Your phone must be in warranty when u register AppleCare. Doesn't cover accidental damage only manufacturerd faults that the phone may have. Excellent product to buy, which I have always purchased for every phone I have bought.

Maybe buy a phone that doesn't have failure issues?

Yes but there are a few who will deal with it as quick and efficient as Apple, I would rather have Applecare + than normal insurance on my phone.

And AppleCare+ only allows 2 claims for which you have to pay an excess for. Either way, shame they don't have it here. Unfortunately you cannot order it online in the US apart from at time of iPhone purchase as AJ would like to have it on my phone.

they replaced the back of mine when it smashed after I dropped my iphone (but they charged me for that - 25quid) so no, don't expect to have screen cover with this.

To stop abuse this has to be bought at the same time you buy the product, so you can't just break your phone and then buy it.

In EU it already 2 years warranty. … In EU it already 2 years warranty. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/technology-19788361



From that news report, it says this - Those laws say firms must replace a product if it does not work when it is first taken out of its box and switched on. By contrast, Apple's paid-for service contract provides for a replacement if the gadget breaks once it starts to be used.

Lucky for me I never turn my phone on so the warranty will stand for the full 2 years.

top service

Seems pointless to me if it doesn't cover accidental damage, for the 2 year EU law and the fact they're spot on when you go in and explain to them!

There is no EU law which gives you a 2 year warranty, it allows you to claim if the item is broken before being used.

great deal,top choice apple + apple care.
apple care should be an example for other generic brands really,the quality and level of service you receive in an apple store when you take your damaged apple product is outstanding.

It means a lot to have such backing.

Seems like a good deal. I was considering it for my iPhone 5 anyway. It gets so much use I'm bound to suffer battery issues around the 18 month mark.

Trouble is I switched from O2 to EE for 4G. However I have an active O2 PAYG sim, does O2 PAYG also attract priority moments or is it pay monthly only?

Does this only cover for the iPhone or would it cover a Macbook as well? :P

You should be able to use an O2 PAYG sim. Try to register and see what happens!
