    Looking for recommendations on iphone insurance (for new iphone coming out next month that I plan on purchasing).

    Gocare, safeware, worthavegroup, squaretrade ?????

    Has anyone had bad experiences (or good experiences) with one of these (or others)? Need guidance. Any that you would highly recommend?

    Thanks.

    I'd say your best (safest and cheapest) bet would be to go through your homeowners or renter's insurance.

    Not all companies will cover your phone so make sure yours does so you're protected.

    I'm also looking for advice on iPhone insurance.

    I actually had a Squaretrade warranty on my laptop (since expired) and was pretty happy with it. I had some sound issues and had to send it out to be repaired. Took about twice as long as their 5 day guarantee, but in the end worked (and still works) very well (no deductible, no shipping fees).

    I'm thinking I'll go with them again for my iPhone, but want to do a little shopping beforehand. Any additional advice is definitely appreciated...
