    Hi all, my first post...been an avid reader and BB user for the longest! I have recently purchased a BB Passport which is en route and due to my home here in LA by this Friday. The seller has tried to sell me his Blackberry Care Coverage, I have read the terms and conditions and it states only transferable if Blackberry can approve. We have been in communication and now he wants me to override his account information by paying the monthly premium but keeping his information and email on file. For obvious reasons I am totally opposed to that, I dont think thats the way the protect plan works. I am looking at 3rd party (Squaretrade) but all state the phone has to be currently insured by the wireless carrier. I am in some desperate need of any help/guidance, how can I insure this phone? According to the seller it was purchased off contract for full retail from ATT directly.

    Some help is appreciated, thank you my Blackberry family!

    SquareTrade should cover it no problem. You may have to call them but it shouldn't be a big deal if you explain that it's currently on Manufacturer's warranty.

    Thank you so much for the quick response...this is what I saw on Square trades website

    I confirm (select one):
    This phone was purchased within the last 30 days. Proof of purchase required.
    This phone is more than 30 days old and insured through my wireless carrier. Proof of insurance required.

    You really need to call SquareTrade. I was about to buy a Passport on Amazon, and I called ST and found out that they cover used machines from eBay and not from Amazon. I don't know what they would say about some other third party.

    Why not buy it brand new and have peace of mind? Especially if you will be using it for years?

    I got a pretty good deal, at this point couldnt afford the extra $200 or so, plus im off contract so my monthly bill is about $40 a month total...I totally agree with what you're saying, wish I could have saved a bit more..took me a while to save enough funds for this however. Any help? options?

    Hi Marcus, thanks...no grief as of yet! Im still awaiting the phone delivery.. I agree on the Silver Edition however...stunning, I did some research and found Esurance...a bit costly at $10.99 a month but looks like they may cover me, any thoughts??

    Check your homeowner's agents to see what they offer if you have one.

    Also check this review of Protect your Bubble.

    As a last resort you can sell your Passport via Swappa and buy one under warranty.

    I hope that helps.

    I don't get the eBay thing. Uh.. this may sound weird, but why don't you give it to your friend so he can sell it back to you on eBay? I don't get it.
