I'm on my BB so I can't tell what carrier you have. But on Sprint, the insurance is $7.00/mo. So, for $84 per year, you get the peace of mind of knowing that if anything happens to your BB (broken, stolen, lost), you get another one for $50. Well worth it to me. Otherwise you would have to pay the full price to replace your baby.
My opinion: get the insurance and keep it, but only until you're eligible for equipment upgrade. But, if you're like me, as soon as that happens you'll be shopping for the latest and greatest, anyway.

Well, I guess I'm the only one. I dropped my insurance. With VZW, you now get a refurbished/reconditioned phone. Also, if they no longer carry your model, you're out of luck unless you want get the model they say is the next equivalent. I'd rather save the insurance money, and get a NEW replacement phone (and the model I want) - and that's if I need it before I want to upgrade.
One question I did have though....what if something happened to my storm, got it replaced with insurance and gave it to my nephew...and traded his phone for mine? Is that possible? I'm not a fan of my storm and would much rather have his phone.
