    Definitely don't get the insurance and then tell them you dropped it in a lake...

    SOL.. thats what insurance is for.. you could send it to a repair shop, but a simple thing like USB port switch-out is 80 bucks.. cant imagine how much it would cost just to diagnose the exact problem and fix it.

    Why not check on craigslist to see if she can get a decent priced replacement?

    sorry to say, but lesson learned. I mean this is a 500 dollar phone, insurance is needed in case something like that happens

    insurance is a scam... $90 deductible!? You can get your own refurb online for 150 and save $8/month

    Verizon will sell her a storm 2 at 1 year contract pricing. She should go for that!

    thats why you show pay the extra 5 to 7 a month for insurance cuz phones do get dropped and they do break often

    talking how insurance is a waste... its not.. prior gettin my tour i went through 6 htc touch pros in the matter of a year... didnt ask a question abt any of them.. you may think its a waste but 7 a month over a full year is 84 bucks.. on top of the 90 deductible is 174.. and a brand new tour in the box is what 500? i think it works it self out

    Yeah, that's now. Let's see what the AUCTION ends at. Do you think car insurance is a scam too? Howzabout health insurance? Me thinks some people are too cheap to pay a few extra dollars per month.

    They're not scams but insurance isn't beneficial for everyone. If you're high risk, you should get insurance. If you're low risk, then you shouldn't. I had an 8830 and it lasted me two years. Insurance would not have been a good choice for me. I would have wasted $144. For people who treat their phones poorly, it may be worth it to get insurance.

    This is the same case with health insurance. If you're young and healthy, there's no reason to pay for 100% coverage with a low deductible. If you're older and unhealthy, then it's likely beneficial.

    How is insurance a scam? Do you think you should get a free brand new phone (or refurbed one) for little to no money if YOU do something to break it?

    I'm going to crash my car into a wall and demand a brand new one under less than full retail!
