Will Verizon offer "insurance" on their iphone?
Hello, everyone. Someone at my work said ATT doesn't offer insurance on the iPhone. I pay a small monthly fee at Verizon for my current Palm Pre Plus. Just wondering if Verizon will offer that same sort of insurance "lost, broken or stolen" ect. insurance.... and if not, will that sway anyones decision if they will purchase one? Thoughts....thanks!

Just got off the phone with a VZW rep. I asked her about "Asurion" insurance for new iPhone and this is what I was told:
Currently I pay $5.99 / month for insurance on my Blackberry with a $50.00 deductable (lost, stolen, damaged etc coverage).
For the iPhone and other "new smartphones", the cost of insurance will increase to: $7.99 / month and an $89.00 deductable (*** can't remember the exact price she said, but it was right around $89.00/month)

just a FYI, Asurion for the At&t iPhone is 11.99 a month with a $200 ded. Yes thats steep but until last summer, Asurion wouldnt even touch iPhones. I bet it will be higher than 7.99 a month with $89 as stated above for the Vzn iPhone

With my shop, I offer Global Warranty which is a separate company outside VZW. It's 99 bux for 2 years, only a 75 dollar deductible and they generally send a new phone. I have not had any communication from them as of yet about being able to cover the iPhone on VZW.

AT&T does offer insurance but it's $13.99 a month and a $100 deductible ... It's not worth it if you do the math ... As I iterated ... State farm personal effects policy $39 a year NO DEDUCTIBLE and you get paid full retail for a new phone ... Not a reman or refurb
