squaretrade any others? I do not have home insurance as I am not in a home so that's not an option.
I don't have homeowners insurance either but have a policy through State Farm called a Personal Articles Policy. Cost about $36/year, no deductible, covered for ANY reason.
Can anyone buy it? They have no option to buy online but how much would it cost?
I am considering squaretrade. I had Best Buy Mobile Care on my 3GS, but I the monthly rates were a little steep.
I need to look into this too since my old iPhone got ripped off a few weeks ago. I also just bought a new MBP and iPad so if I can get insurance for all three that covers theft then I'll be interested.
wait, home insurance would cover an iphone if it was to break (accidental/other damage)?
Most would but homeowners policies typically have fairly high deductibles ($250 or more) so it doesn't make much sense to file a claim.
Not sure. I have a car policy with them but it doesn't hurt to call your local State Farm office or your own car insurance company and see if they offer something similar.
I went with Mobileprotect by Assurion for $12 a month. Most people will complain about the price, but I won't as it covers everything I need it to in case anything does happen to my phone. Different strokes for different folks.
"Good Morning! The Mac would be $30 per year with 0 deductible. We do not offer coverage for I Phones. Thank you."
From a rep. I thought you can get iphones covered?
State Farm's Personal Articles policy is separate from your general Homeowner's policy. It does NOT have a deductible, however I was told a couple of years ago that you could not cover your phone on it. But maybe that has changed? I have a bunch of camera equipment covered, but I would love to add my iPhone, so I'll have to check into this.
Oh. I don't owe a home so I could not get homeowner's policy.
I just bought the Square Trade insurance last night. Someone posted a coupon code so it was only $80 and some change for 2 years of coverage!!! Now THAT is a freaking deal
I use the warranty from my Amex card. It doubles the standard Apple warranty and covers the phone fully. Tried once on a dell monitor. They sent me a check for what I spent on the monitor and didn't even want me to send the broken one to them.
except the apple warranty does not cover accidental damage...
Squaretrade on a month to month basis. $4.87/mth after coupon.
The Amex warranty covers you from accidental damage for 90 days, so i stand corrected on the accidental damage part.
do u still have that coupon code?
use "SLICKPHONE4" It gets you 2 years of squaretrade for 80 bucks
Squaretrade is probably the best deal, but I went with Best Buy's coverage for right now. It's $15/mo but there's no deductible, you can cancel at any time, and I really only need 1 year of protection because I'll be upgrading again in a year anyway. No fuss, just take it to the store if something happens and it covers drops and spills too. Yeah, I know it's more expensive, but I did it in the heat of the moment after finding out about all these hardware problems before picking up my phone! ;-)
I just bought my warranty using the promotional code above.
Just ordered my squaretrade using the SLICKPHONE4 code. $84 for 2 yrs and covers accidental damage. Well worth it!
Don't forget that you can refer your friends to squaretrade and get $5 each.
Don't forget that if you have a squaretrade warranty on a phone that you are getting rid of you can get a prorated amount back.
I got my warranty yesterday using the 35% off deal.
Does that squaretrade ins. cover lost or stolen phones or is it just accidental damage?
