    Well, I got my phone on dec 23 and I went today to buy insurance for it. I went to best buy because my ATT store was closed. I asked the lady can I have att insurance put on my line? she said sure. Well, she ended up giving me the best buy black tie insurance for 9.99 a month..... I didnt realize it wasnt what I really asked for until I got home and looked at the receipt.

    My question is should I keep it or should I cancel it and go with att insurance?

    $10 a month? Hopefully you get vaseline with that. Ouch. I'd cancel that in a second and go with ATT, if you still have that option.

    well she said that it will be replaced free of charge. But I just read on the att website that they charge $125 for replacements right?

    The benefit of Best Buy's insurance is that I think there is no deductible whereas with AT&T's there is the $125 deductible.

    Another benefit to the Best Buy insurance is that if the bold isn't being sold anymore when you break it, they'll give you credit to buy a new phone worth the amount you paid for the bold originally.

    True- I don't mind the deductible though. I look at it kind of like health insurance. I don't mind paying a deductible in exchange for a lower premium if I'm not likely going to need it often. I haven't had a phone insurance claim in several years.

    I don't mind a deductible either. I would rather pay a lower premium. I use AT&T's insurance

    I also have a question which is related to Jokor's last post about purchasing a phone at Best Buy, and trying to get AT&T insurance on the service plan? I know there is not much of a difference in the monthly rate or deductible. However, I would rather have insurance at $4.99 a month with a higher deductible, than pay the $9.99 a month. If you purchase the phone through Best Buy, I would think you have to take their insurance plan. So basically I was wondering, that if I was to purchase the plan and phone at Best Buy; could I then go into the AT&T store and just add insurance to the plan? Has anyone tried that?

    Mr. Chris: Yes. The Best Buy insurance as the AT&T
    insurance is optional. You can choose whichever suits your needs.
