    I've just got this new unlocked Passport and started thinking that I should insure this phone for lost, stolen, breaking.
    Have you thought about it? You may have done already?
    I'd like to get some ideas on this!

    Thanks!

    Mine never leaves my pocket or hand ,so i don't buy insurance, now if you drop it , that's a different problem.

    Good for you.
    I'm same way but I just can't afford buying another Passport if I loose this. So I've just start researching and reading this page.

    I'm thinking Worth Ave. Group now.

    Might be a good idea, it's an expensive phone, I was just being a bit of a smart azz.

    Hope you enjoy your new phone.

    It seems 7 bucks in a month for 800 bucks cover with 50 bucks deductible.
    I'm thinking...

    What about SquareTrade warranty?

    It seems they only covers breakage. Not being stolen and only USA.
    Correct me if I'm wrong.

    So anybody research the best coverage for a USA warranty? I definitely want lost or stolen included. $50 deductible would be nice.
    I'm getting a bit scared with all the screen separation issues I've been seeing on these forums. I've taken advantage of my carrier's exchange program several times over the years for various issues. Obviously I don't have that option with the Passport. Thanx

    I got talked/suckered into geeksquad....anyone have experience with them? I figure i'll get a brand new passport out of it at some point. my q10 starting having issues within a few months..first the speaker quit.

    they allow up to 5 replacements in 2 years. sounds a bit crazy.
    its costing me $10/mo and the deductible is $0-100 depending on whether or not you inflicted the damage yourself.

    I used to work at BestBuy.
    The smartphone warranties are fine; you should get quick and satisfactory coverage, usually a like new refurb if still available for most issues. I wouldn't buy their coverage for most other items they sell.

    Actually, I just went with Square Trade. $89.00 for two years if you pay it up front, comes to $3.75 per month. $75.00 deductible and accidental damage is covered along with any malfunction(s). Their reviews were very good. Thanks

    That's why I wouldn't go.

    "Protect Your Bubble" used to cover loss/ theft. They were one of the few and no longer offer that coverage. In addition the co-pays are double or more, and the monthly payments are double the $3.75/mo I'm paying by putting $89.00 all up front. It begins to lose value to me, IMO. How much is a new passport going to cost a year or more after release to replace? Square Trade has excellent reviews.
    Some carriers may still offer loss/ theft, but I don't have that option in the U.S.

    I'm still looking for buying insurance for my unlocked Passport in Canada.
    But no luck so far.

    What I know now is you'd have to buy a device from BestBuy
    , you have to insure within 30 days , and very importantly they don't cover loss or stolen.

    A years worth of premiums + the deductible are not worth the added costs. I'll do repairs myself or buy a replacement device. I have Ghost Armor applied promptly on all my devices. My Passport is kept in a StilGut book case until my Vaja agenda case arrives. I use my Classic with the OEM holster. If someone is hard on their devices, and limited in self repair, then I can see the advantage of insurance.
