What is insurance

Insurance is a form of risk management in which the insured transfers the cost of potential loss to another entity in exchange for monetary compensation known as the premium.

Therefore the purpose of buying insurance is to protect you mobile phone against the things that a manufacturer’s warranty does not. While warranty will cover you for mechanical breakdowns and faults, it’s of no help if – like so many of us – you accidentally damage your device. Likewise, if you suffer the misfortune of losing your phone or, worse still, having it stolen, you’ll be on your own. Insurance is always an optional additional purchase, but it exists to give you peace of mind against these not necessarily likely, but definitely possible, mishaps.

What Mobile phone insurance covers (usually):

  •     Accidental damage including  spills, liquid submersion, drops, cracks, liquid, any damage caused by accident.
  •     Mechanical and electronic failures, if your manufacturer’s warranty has expired and the failure would have been covered under this warranty.
  •     Loss or theft of your mobile phone.

You have two options if you decide cell phone insurance is worth the investment – either taking out a policy through your cell phone carrier when you buy a phone (which usually needs to be done within 30 days of purchase), or through an independent company unrelated to your cell network.
Mobile phone insurance companies
All of the big carriers – Sprint, AT&T, Verizon Wireless, and T-Mobile – offer what’s basically the same insurance under different names, through insurance company Asurion. Asurion insure approximately 20% of cell phone users through the policies they administer for carriers.

Many of them also offer a cash reimbursement option for your damaged phone instead of either replacement or repair.

Strangely enough, you may also find that policies offered by other companies instead cover incidental issues that Asurion does not, such as display failures, issues with your antenna or wireless connection, or touchscreen failures.

As with manufacturer’s warranties, personalized data – such as contacts, music, video, and customized software – isn’t covered.
