If say phone lost means really lost ah
Don't forget they have your IMEI number in their system. If you reported lost and after the replacement, there's signal from the lost phone using other number what you think they will do? There's also a chance telco will send out signal to kill off the phone.

Mobile swop la. Tell them phone lost and 550 for a new refurbished phone . Why not?

U still need to pay 300 for Apple Care and phone lost how? Replacement also so expensive. Mobile swop anytime can cancel
That's the only good thing for Mobile Swop if phone lost need to replace. Other than that Apple Care still on the upper hand.

If phone lost and you received a replacement from ST, I think with those document you can still transfer your Apple Care over to the new phone.

Have been using iPhone since iPhone3G. Even till today, applecare or applecare+ have not benefit me at all. Worse cases for me are: headphone jack non-responsive; home-button non-sensitive. All happens within 1 year warranty. As for dropping my iPhone, I can count with my 10 fingers for the past 9 years. Never crack or dent, protected by decent casings, which can get with less than $20. It boils down to individual on how you take care of your belongings.

Not really. Apple Care charge 220/180 for screen replacement for iPhone 7 while mobile swop charge the same for screen repair. Both same service .

There was once I repair my screen at ahbeng shop then the screen still got not responsive . I just report lost and get a new refurbished from mobile swop instead for 550 instead of buying new phone and sell the old phone to China for 500

That's the only good thing for Mobile Swop if phone lost need to replace. Other than that Apple Care still on the upper hand.

Thought this was stated under AppleCare+ charges "service fee of S$42 for screen damage, or S$148 for all other damage". Unless their so-call screen damage doesn't applies to screen replacement which I doubt so.

According to AppleInsider, several Apple employees have confirmed to the publication that a shattered back glass is classified as "any other damage" under AppleCare+. While it costs S$42 to repair the display, you have to fork out 3.5x the amount at $148 to repair the back glass. This is not taking into consideration the S$268 AppleCare+ you have to pay when purchasing the iPhone 8/8 Plus or S$368 AppleCare+ for the iPhone X and that you are only covered up to two incidents of accidental damage.

I think Mobile swop won't get you a brand new set per se. It only makes sense for them to provide a refurbished one with pro rated warranty? Else how to sustain?
