Asurion lowers Verizon's TEC insurance price
Anyone else get one of these letters that verizon TEC insurance from asurion is going down in price to $6.99? I haven't had TEC insurance since my BB and the letter stated that I am still enrolled with them. I went with Applecare+ and it's still cheaper asurion's new price. After waiting on the phone for about 20 minutes asurion then directed me to verizon customer care where I waited another 15 minutes just to find out that I'm not enrolled anymore and I'm just still in the system until my account works it's way out. They also lowered the deductibles for replacement phones($45 for basic phones and $99 for smartphones). I noticed that iPhones aren't even on the list. So does that mean TEC insurance won't cover iPhones anymore? Not like I care because asurion is a rip off but I'm curious

I haven't received anything from Verizon or Asurion. Called both and neither one knew anything about this. I'm thinking about dumping the insurance all together. Was looking at going the applecare+ but it doesn't cover against physical damage or being lost.

i havent rec'd anything in the mail about this either--and i DO have the TEC for my iPhone, and now you've noticed that the iPhone isn't on the insurance replacement warranty list now? i'm going to have to call and see what i can find out about it on Monday.
If Verizon is not going to honor the insurance for an iPhone now, then i'll be dropping mine. I have AC+ in addition--i just won't be happy because i know AC+ does NOT cover lost/stolen phones.

Ok, just to update you guys - I just called VzW cust care. Currently the TEC mthly chg for the iPhone is $9.99, with a $169 deductible if you need to use the insurance. As of now, the rep has not heard of the mthly chg going to $6.99.
