And being able to jump in the pool with my iPhone and still get it replaced is big to me, since I've lost TWO dumbphones over the years to that (one because I was pushed in the pool out of the blue at a party, and the other because I was being a tard :P)

I feel as though I'm in the twilight zone. Anyway to actually reply to the original post, YES to insurance, I've had to use it in the past for my kids lost phone and one that his friend spilled a drink on, I use Verizon's provider.

Regarding Worth Avenue insurance
Many of you have talked about SquareTrade, anyone looked into Worth Avenue? Just got my Verizon iPhone today and DO want insurance. Worth is about $100 cheaper than ST but doesn't cover manufactuer defects. I'm not a techie and I'm not in insurance. Anyone tried Worth Ave?

Hey guys, I JUST got off the phone with SquareTrade and their rep confirmed that if they cannot fix an item they send you a check BEFORE you buy a new item. You use their money to buy a new one. I just insured a new 7.1 Sony AV receiver with their 50% off coupon too. 3 years of coverage for $15.

I used to get insurance when it was $4.99 a month. Recently it has gotten so expensive that I have taken a new path with my smartphones. The deductible is almost the same price I paid with a contract
I don't get insurance at all. It saves $10 a month or so
If my phone breaks I just add a line to my account for $10 a month. this is sort of paying insurance only if its needed after the fact.
So far I have only broken one phone and it cost me $240 because of the extended contract.
Its a slight gamble but if you take care of your phones for the most part then it works well. Plus if you have an extra line and you decide to keep it then you can renew every year or so at reduced prices.

(I got these coupon codes with my free iPhone 4 case)
By the way, the free iPhone 4 case you get is pretty nice, but it is for the AT&T iPhone. It works just fine for the ViP, but the mute switch is a little obscured.

I have always had the Asurion insurance offered by Verizon, but luckily, never had to make a claim thus far. The cost went up $2/month for the iPhone compared to the coverage on my Droid Incredible.
I am now thinking of covering it under my homeowners policy and dropping the Asurion coverage next month.

and i agree, i rather pay the monthly fee to asurion and never lose my phone, then to have squaretrade cover me for non-theft/lost and for me to have my phone lost/stolen. i've never lost my phone and not found it (only time i lost, but did find my phone was a nextel i had almost 10 years ago).
