    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.

    Verizon does honor the insurance. Asurion does support both the 4 and 4S they just haven't updated their site to reflect this. Like I said I called and spoke to both. The only thing they didn't know about was the price drop from 9.99 to 6.99 along with the 169.00 deductible to 99.00.

    neur0, if you want to put Apple Care+ on your iPhone you have to do it within 30days of your purchase date. Be aware that AC+ does NOT cover lost/stolen phones like the Verizon TEC coverage will. i actually have both insurances on mine.
