    How are you chaps insuring your phone? On your house insurance? The £15 a month by o2 is frankly ludicrous, there's even a £100 excess on your first claim. I signed up for it, knowing Ive got 14 days to cancel.

    (Forgive me, I posted this in the UK thread but it'll be lost in the swamp of other posts)

    wow has the excess gone up to £100 thats criminal i complained about £25 the other month i don't understand why they charge an excess when you insuring one item! I understand the concept of excess with cars and houses when there are 100's of small things to claim on! After a couple of years you've paid them the same amount as a new phone!!

    I get mobile insurance (amongst other things) with my UK bank, premuim account type thing. Regsistered my new imei withthem yesterday :D

    Most banks seem to do things like this now, could be worth looking into, my bank is First Direct

    I've gone with my bank (Lloyds TSB). If you have a silver account (which costs £7.50 a month but is only £3 a month for first three months), then you get free phone insurance. It's an comprehensive an any of the networks.

    But! It does take 14-20 days to activate, so I've paid out to Orange for a months insurance in the meantime.

    It cost me £12 a month, but that also includes worldwide travel insurance, identity protection, breakdown cover and some other stuff I'll prob never use. Still better value than £15 for mobile insurance alone!

    Nah, to be fair, there is all that as well bar identity protection, I skipped these details. Still a complete rip.
