    Has anyone purchased third party insurance for lost, stolen, or damaged iPhones? If so, what company? AT&T or Apples does not offer insurance and I would like to cover my phone for these area. Thanks. Gecko

    Contact your homeowner's or renter's insurance company and pretty much all of them will offer a "floater" or "rider" policy for specific items outside of your house being damaged or destroyed.

    My iPhone is covered by Statefarm (my homeowner's insurance company) under a floater policy. If it gets lost, stolen, or broken in some way they will cut me a check to just buy a new one. Make sure you get it insured for the non-upgrade price of what ever model you have.

    Edit - Oh yea, the cost is $25/year for mine.

    Unless your sleeping with someone, state farm will not cover an iPhone, that is there corporate policy.

    I'm not worried about that. Dropping it and possibly killing that screen are what I am afraid of.
