    Do you guys think it's worth getting the extended warranty Verizon offers ?

    Tomorrow is the 14 day, I think we have to decide if we want it by then....

    I think there are 3 types...$2.99, $3.99 and $6.99..a month extra..


    Is it worth it?
    Doesn't the phone come with a 1 year warranty anyway?

    I didnt. I'm starting to think that maybe I should.. but I have heard from people that even when you do ahve a legitimate claim, the insurance company does all it can to NOT pay you.

    I went with the top one, what ever it was. I thought it was $7.99, but I could be wrong.

    No extended warranty here. I'm generally careful with my phones and have only dropped a cell phone once in 7-8 years.

    Basically, any insurance is the insurance company betting you won't ever make a claim and looking at the amount of money they make, they're usually right :D

    i got the 8$ one. the plan I got is already 100$, if i'm going to spend that much a month just for the phone, 8$ is a small price to get it fixed if needed.

    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.
