    Insurance on Phone?

    What do you guys think about getting insurance on your phone? I got it on my dare, never used it though. What do you think?

    I've had it on every cell phone I had, even the simple cheap ones. Never needed it.

    That being said; this is my first smartphone. If I hadn't gotten insurance before, this would've been the one to start with.

    Get the insurance. There have been a number of stories on here of people who wish they had.

    I opted for no insurance on both the Droid and the Droid Incredible on my account. The $80 replacement cost along with the monthly charge just seemed like too much. I figure if something happens to either phone it will be close to a year after purchase so you are talking nearly $200 into getting a replacement phone. Ebay replacement is right near that, so it is break even costwise. Therefore I opted for no insurance.

    extended warranty

    I have the extended warranty. It is cheaper & they replace the phone if something goes wrong with it.
    With a new phone or an equivalent new phone if it is not available anymore.
    I don't think it will do anything if you lose it or damage it like breaking the screen.
    But if you drop it and it quits working it should be covered.

    It's a personal judgment call that you need to make.

    The warranty (same for extended warranty) doesn't cover dropping the device.

    This is my reasoning, as well. I see Droids on Craigslist often for $250. It's a gamble, but not much of one.
