    I know State Farm as a "Personal Articles" policy. I contacted them the other day via email about it below is a cut and past from their email to me about it.

    Steve,

    Yes we are aware of the Personal articles policy with cell phones. In New Jersey the annual premium is $50. The only exception is the phone can't be used for business.

    Mzbutterfly who is your carrier? For instance, I pay $5.99 a month with T-mobile so I would advise to check with your carrier.

    I hate that Tmobile only let's you insure your device in the first 14 days. I think it's silly to set limitations on when a customer can add insurance for a device they paid for...

    At&t does not offer insurance for all blackberry devices as mentioned on their website. I don't think At&t insures any of their smartphones.

    I am on my third 8830 and while I love this phone I would never buy one without insurance. Too much can go wrong, as I have learned. VZW's is only $5 a month and it's already saved me twice!

    same here! I have insurance on my 8703. I dropped the first one while moving (right on the concrete, broken screen) and insurance sent me a new one

    I wish there was a special insurance for blackberry's, if it breaks, you can exchange it for a new one (plus the 50 fee they charge) as long as you turn in your broken phone back to at&t. If you lose it, you can buy yourself another one. I think thats fair, because there are people who do fraud.

    Found this on the at&t forums:

    "shareware.com -
    Reportedly, it fares out to be the same price as any other insurance a carrier would offer, about $5.00 a month and also cover laptops, ipods, all pda's. Good luck, didn't work for me


    Wireless Safeguard Insurance for BlackBerry, Palm Treo, and other AT&T Cingular Devices -
    This website that offers third party insurance that insures most of ATT/Cingular's smart phones and blackberrys."

    I'm also doing some calling to check out the validity of the company. So, if you find out anything, let us know.
