Good insurance for mobile? (cheap-ish?)

  Loracthims 21:11 08 Jun 2009

Hi there. After 9 years with the same old PAYG mobile, I now have a contract phone (Nokia 5800 Music Express) from Their insurance for it is extra £7.99 per month. Want to try to get it cheaper but can anyone advise on a 'decent' insurance provider? (if there is such a thing?).

It is not that hard to work out.You have had your phone for 9 years without loosing it.
You get a 1 year warranty with all new phones.So they are going to charge you £96 for the first year while it is under warranty.
Cheaper putting it to a new phone.Ignore the Insurance. But I suppose thats when sods law kicks in and you loose it or drop it after the first week.

Your contents insurance should cover mobile phones.

My son dropped his IPhone at the gym his phone insurance did not want to know but our contents insurance paid out on it.

Nokia have a 2 year warranty on their phones.

You also have to factor that a 5800 is currently only worth £199 to buy outright.

Iphone is around £450 to £550, as is most N range phones for example... these I would ensure I had protection on but not for a 5800, especially at £7.99 per month.

With Lloyds TSB if you pay their monthly fee for an upgraded account you get 2 phones insured free, as well as Sentinel card cover, travel insurance, AA and more. This is not an advert for Lloyds but perhaps you bank does similar. Think I pay £17 a month, which more or less covers your payments for 2 phones. Also includes misusage. Hope this helps.
