    Absolutely. It's worth every penny in the event that it gets broken. They cover just about everything.

    I have no interest in having to spend $600 in one shot to replace the phone. Lose or damage it once or have one nonwarranty repair and you're ahead.

    I've never had insurance for a cell phone. I've never broken a cell phone. I have dropped a cell phone once. And even that was only partially my fault.

    I realize it only takes one problem to kill your phone, but I take much better care of my phones than probably 99% of the people on this forum. The stories I read about people being so careless with their devices make me want to cringe. So many dropped Droids... Here's hoping some of you never have children. x_x

    Have had insurance on all mine (and kids) phones. Have used it 3 times in about 3 years.

    I take care of my devices 100% as well, but that didn't prevent a random drunk person from pushing me into a pool with my LG enV3 and my Cadillac CTS-V key fob in my pockets.

    Solution: Be antisocial like me, and don't go to pool parties with drunks.

    Fill the void: Droid Does.

    Nah, I'm not that antisocial. But perhaps hanging around by a pool with a bunch of drunks wasn't the best idea, no matter if you had your Droid with you or not. Sounds like that's just trouble waiting to happen. :p

    i've always bought insurance, but this new $89 deductible is pretty pricey that i don't think i want it. maybe the first yr, but after that you can get a brand new phone for $199 instead of $89 for a refurbish phone.

    no insurance. asurion is 90 deductible plus 6/month? that is just way too much, i'd need to have like a 50% chance of breaking the phone for it to be worth it. 40/yr through state farm is close to being worthwhile, and i'm considering getting that for a year.

    After an incident jumping in a pool with my LG Dare in my pocket without thinking, getting insurance was a no brainer. (No pun intended)

    No insurance, but then I also avoid any negative comments towards those who do insure products.

    However, insurance is no longer sold to protect products anymore. It is to provide state of mind, and that is why the industry is booming.
