    SquareTrade's insurance is already marked down from $123.75 to $99.00

    Use coupon code FF30 and save $30 instead of $24.75 and buy yourself a beer!!!

    My final price was $93.75

    If you buy a referal would be nice.

    1)MacRumor members swear by Squaretrade with good CS

    2)Heard it pretty quick 3-5 day turnaround

    3)$99 2year contract, $50 deductible each claim.

    Previous explanation in another post:
    From what I understand its well worth it. $99 one time fee for 2yrs and $50 deductible. I heard they will go out their way to repair any damage instead of replacing extreme damage and if they do have to replace it your contract is cut and you have to pay $99 again for a new contract. Thats the only part I didnt like. I heard the repair process is a pretty quick turnaround tho.

    Squaretrade does NOT cover loss or theft, where Asurion's coverage offered by Verizon does.

    I considered that.... but decided to take my chances otherwise.

    1) its expensive

    2) way high deductibles

    I use asurion on my Att iPhone. Its easier to come up with $200 if I lose it than $699 + tax. I lost mine at the movies 2 weeks after I bought it. Luckily somebody turned it in. Thats not normal. I was thinking I was so glad I had asurion but I never needed to pay the $200 since I had a honest person

    Another Alternative Get iPhone Insurance and laptop insurance with a Worth Ave Group Insurance Policy -- MacWorld has some reviews of the company... I took a quick look at their website - I'm going to research more...

    In my 30+ years of cell phonedom... I have never lost or had a phone stolen. I have had a ton of phones, including the 3G & 3GS.

    $10 a month, plus a $200 deductible is way too much for a problem I have never had. I realize there is always a first time, but I am willing to take my chances on loss or theft.

    You're one of those people who will say "it never happens to me" until it does, and then proceed to kvetch about not having a means to replace that lost/stolen device other than full retail price... different strokes for different folks.

    Worth Ave Group looks good....my only concern is they don't cover loss (theft, yes). I've never lost a phone but you Never Say Never....

    If you lose it just say it was stolen.....that simple. If you lose it maybe someone else will find it and then its stolen so your not lying.

    Ran across this site for iPhone insurance.....seems promising. https://www.insureappleiphone.com/index.html

    • $5.99/mth or $69.99/yr
    • $50 deductible
    • Covers the usual including lost


    Although there is a section that states the deductible is higher for lost/stolen and they don't give an amount (depends on your model). Going to email them to see if they'll give me ##s.....

    Yeah but they'd probably require a police report for stolen claims. (I would if I was them)

    I believe that the $50 deductible for a SquareTrade warranty applies only to accidental damage i.e., dropped, wet, etc. Any other loss is covered in full.

    When my Storm was new, I had a background picture with writing that said, "REWARD for phone ...even if you stole it! I will be greatly thankful. Call XXXXXXXXX" (no it wasn't my cell number).

    I never lost it, but I was hedging my fate.

    Home Owners wont cover the most likely senarios that would happen to your iPhone, unless you are prepared to lie your a-- off and be able to prove it. Additionally, its best to keep your Home Owner claims down to a minimum to keep your rates down long term.

    In my case, StateFarm even dropped the Personal Items Policy for the iPhone and iPad. They will cover my $2000 dollar Nikon DLSR, but wont touch anything that starts with a lower case "i".

    Just sayin... your policy may be different.

    It's called being a realist. And witnessing, or having things happen in life... just because you haven't had things happen does not mean they can't.

    Speaking of lighten up... physician, heal thyself.

    Checked them out
    $5.99/mtg
    &50 deductible for everything except loss/theft
    They do cover loss & theft but at a higher deductible depending on model & size. They quoted my iPhone 4 16gb at $300 for loss or theft.

    Hope that helps someone. I think that's the route I'm taking.
