    I recently purchased a Droid X outside of Verizon and would still like to get some phone insurance.

    Since I can't get Verizon's insurance, can anyone recommend a reliable outside company?

    I've seen a few that are about $50/year with $50 deductible, but I don't know their reliability.

    Thanks all...

    I use Assurion which I believe is contracted with Verizon.

    SquareTrade is $99 for 2 years for premium smartphones. You can also sometimes find 30% off coupons for SquareTrade.

    Good to see they finally cut the price. Bad that it took them a bleeding year to do it.

    I checked these and they seem to need a receipt of purchase. I got mine from a guy on Craigslist. Are there insurance companies that can help me??

    Thanks all...

    I use Worth Ave. and they've never asked me for a receipt. I had one claim with them a couple of years ago and it went great.

    They would probably ask you for a receipt if you got a policy today and had a claim very quick.

    I got a Square Trade warranty for my Nook color. They didn't require a receipt when I got the warranty, but they will require it if I file a claim. I emailed them my receipt so that I won't have to find it if I file a claim. Assurion won't require a receipt if you bought the phone from Verizon, as they have it electronically from Verizon when you signed up for the warranty at Verizon. I would expect that any warranty company would require a receipt when a claim is filed.

    Transfer Warranty

    Square trade says you can transfer your warranty for free? Does anyone know what exactly that means? I recently bought Inc2's for myself and two kids. I was told by Verizon that I could just buy one insurance plan and have it for all three phones. Is that transferring the warranty? Would other companies allow this?
