    It might work for renters insurance also.

    I have Geico Auto and Geico Homeowners (serviced by Travelers Insurance).

    I just called them up. They cover a mobile phone loss just like any other loss - unless it was stolen from my car (at which point it would go under my car insurance).

    BUT - I would have to pay the $500 deductible. The girl I talked with did say they were researching ways to cover smaller electronics, but currently have nothing.

    So, I am thinking the Verizon insurance for now unless Best Buy comes back with something bigger & better.

    Do you remember the details of the Best Buy plan?

    It looks like they offer a service plan for the iPhone at $15/mo. but no deductible on your claim.

    Has anyone had any experience with Best Buy's mobile service plans?

    I asked and th guy at Best Buy told me it was oly $10

    Say that $15 / mo for insurance on an iphone is true, and that there is no deductible. It would only that verizon customers 6 months to already be better off then that plan.

    15 * 6 = $90
    6 * 6 = $36

    $90-$36 = $54 -$50 (For verizon's deductible) and verizon customers come out 4 dollars ahead.

    Anything before 6 months and iphone wins.
    Resistance is futile.

    Just so you know the deductible is 80 for advanced devices not 50. That was the old insurance option.

    So it will be a 9 month difference... still better in the long run.

    The cost to insure it through BB is only $10/mo. Verizon is $6 w/ a $80 deductible.

    Break even appears to be at 20 months if:
    BB - $10/mo * 20 months = $200 total
    VZW - $6/mo * 20 months = $120 + $80 deductible = $200 total

    Considering NE2 discount (when most of us might consider a new phone anyway):
    BB - $10/mo * 24 = $240 total
    VZW - $6/mo * 24 = $144 + $80 deductible = $224 total

    Anything over 20 months makes Verizon slightly cheaper.

    If your phone breaks once and then lose it the the next time. Its definitely better than buying two phones. They let you replace it twice during your two year contract
