Anyone have luck adding insurance after 30 days
When i bought my phone i bought it at best buy and the guy there made there protection plan sound so much better then Verizon's so i went with it instead. I went in yesterday to ask about it because i want to replace my storm because the screen stops working. They guy said it take 3-4 weeks to get it back and i either have to leave a $150 deposit and they will give me a loaner phone or i can buy a prepaid phone and use that on my plan. But that means no blackberry for a month which i don't want. so i'm wondering if anyone has a way to get them to add insurance after the 30 days is up. i also pay $10 bucks a month for the stupid best buy plan. If i can't get it added i may cancel and go to at&t, which i don't want to do because money is tight. I need my phone to work and not have to do a battery pull to make a call or text someone back.

your chances are probably remote at best.
based on my own personal experience, they wouldn't allow me to add insurance after teh 30 day mark. Also, they're going to sense something's up when you want to add insurance and then immediately file a claim.
Also, in order for insurance to be activated, a call must be made from that phone.
Sorry for the bad news. I tried to add insurance on the 32nd day when i'd lost my phoneBlackberry Storm on Verizon

- message me and you may recieve
if the screen stopped working that should be covered under the waranty...like it doesn't register that you're touching anything stopped working? now if it's cracked or you dropped it...that's a different story...otherwise you'll have to call the insurence company and add insurence for the phone"Riding home in a car seat.

Also if u don't want todo battery pulls then don't buy a BB. Because all BB suffer from memory problems. Also I can't figure why folks buy there cell phones outside carrier stores.

Why because i was there. I only went in to see if they would let me open a account. I didn't think i was going to buy the phone. I was already there no point to leave and buy somewhere else. They afforded me the verizon plan but i took the best buy plan like a *****.
