I was blown away. Coming from Verizon and LG phones previously, I was used to paying a fee for any exchange. I'm a happy Apple consumer and have had very few problems with any of their products.
My friend has the new Razor and accidentally broke his screen. He pays a monthly fee for insurance and when he took it in to Verizon, they wanted $100 for a replacement.
I'll stick with my Apple products that do a damn good job at doing what they are designed for and would probably work for most people. You can prance around with your Android devices and feel superior for not being a fanboy.
That's awesome. Apple does have a similar deal with the insurance....at least I thought they did.
Buddy of mine dropped his iPhone, cracked the screen. When he took it in, guy wouldn't/couldn't fix it, so they offered him a new phone.....at full retail. He ended up finding a place to have the screen fixed, ended up costing him $150 or so.
Mine is as you said above. If something happens with my phone and it needs replaced, I pay a fee (I think $100) and I get a new phone.
