    I'm curious if anyone who recently purchased the Moto X opted to buy the Moto Care Accident Protection for $85? I'm still on the fence about it and I have about three weeks to decide. I'm someone who always uses a screen protector and keeps my phone in a case, so I can't figure out if it's really worth it for me. The one big selling point is that they will supply you with a replacement device while they're inspecting or repairing/replacing yours. I read the "fine print" and it seems like the damage that they cover must affect the functionality of the device, not just the cosmetic appearance. I wonder if this covers a cracked screen, which is something I wouldn't want to live with even if the phone still worked fine.

    Anyone else have any other thoughts on the pros and cons of this extended warranty?

    I'm interested to hear as well. Also, I can't even find where your can purchase the care protection on the Moto site?

    It was an option at checkout unless you are a Verizon customer. If you are not, I think you can add it if you call within 30 days of purchase.

    If you have Verizon and have their insurance and have to use it all they'll send you is a standard black or white version they won't replace it with the same custom setup you bought from moto maker

    I didn't ask about the Dev or 32gb models since as soon as in was told I wouldn't be getting the same device as a replacement I canceled the insurance and plan yo just rock a case and screen protector

    I keep it for loss or theft but it really sucks if you don't get the same device you are paying to insure.

    True but I refuse to insure something that won't be replaced with the same thing or better

    Has anyone else opted for or have been considering buying the $85 Moto Care Accident Protection (warranty extension) post phone purchase? I'm still trying to decide if it's necessary or worth it.

    I say it's worth it hands down. $35 deductible vs $150 - 200 from a carrier. On top it's $85 for 2 years vs $5 - 7 a month on the carrier. I got it and have no regrets with it.

    Make sure it is available on your carrier. No on VZW.

    ITA. I would have purchased it in a heart beat.

    I hate everything about Verizon except my truly unthrottled, unlimited data. If it weren't for my UDP, I would hop back to ATT in a heartbeat.
