    In all the years I've been using cell phones I've never-ever damaged one. That being said, I got the $7.99/mo plan.

    I dropped my iPhone once on a concrete floor. Had it in a case as usual and it suffered no damage. Still made me cringe though.

    i got my phone at Best Buy and got their phone insurance plan. its $9.99/mo. it covers all sorts of stuff that probably won't ever happen, but its reassuring to have it.

    I was just reading through the verizon wireless faq and it looks like we have 30 days to add the warranty.

    "Does Verizon Wireless offer Total Equipment Coverage against lost/stolen/damaged and malfunctioning equipment?
    Yes, Total Equipment Coverage offers complete protection for your wireless equipment. It combines the benefits of Asurion’s Wireless Phone Protection with the Verizon Wireless Extended Warranty program. If your device or covered accessories are inoperable for any reason-lost, stolen, accidentally damaged, or malfunctioning-you are covered. Verizon Wireless customers can only enroll in Total Equipment Coverage within 30 days of new account activation with new equipment or an upgrade with new equipment purchase.

    Phones*
    $5.99 per month per covered phone.
    $39 non-refundable deductible per approved claim.
    Advanced Devices*
    $7.99 per month per covered device.
    $89 non-refundable deductible per approved claim.
    For a list of equipment in the Phones and Advanced Devices programs, please visit Asurion's website or call Asurion at (888) 881-2622.
    *Effective 5/17/2009, with all new device activations and new device upgrades. Until you upgrade to a new device, the existing monthly fee and deductibles remain in effect."

    The two plans are $6 and $8 per month. Difference is simple.

    $6 plan covers loss, damage, or theft with an $89 deductible.

    $8 plan covers all that PLUS extends manufacturer's warranty every month you're covered. Deductible applies ONLY if it is loss, damage, or theft.

    So if the screen stops working or the keyboard isn't responsive anymore, it's covered in month 13 and beyond on the $8 plan.

    Defects are not covered past 12 months if you choose the $6 plan.

    I've got the $8 plan. Cheaper than the $600 price tag to replace one on your own.

    My advice? GET IT!

    I never used to get this insurance, but got it for the first time when I purchased my Tour. One day, I had it on my bed and fell over onto the bed. Somehow, I managed to hit the screen right square in the middle with my elbow and destroyed the screen. Claims can be made online, but I called Asurion. It was a 10 minute phone call, I told them exactly what happened, and I had a brand new, factory sealed tour the next day. It can't be beat. This is the first time I've ever used anything like this, and I'm REALLY glad I had the insurance. I will never go without it again.
