    If you buy the iPhone from Best Buy, you can get Best Buy’s Black Tie Service for $15 a month. No deductible and it covers the same things as Asurion.

    Carlos Cortez, a 28-year old bricklayer from Jersey City, N.J. “And I don’t need it. I treat my phone better than I treat my woman.”

    Wow. Talk about a real ladies man. I sure hope someone that knows his wife reads this quote and passes it along to her. Chivalry is D-E-A-D.

    Cell phone insurance is a waste of money and just a money maker for insurance company. Be carefully with the phone. You don’t get insurance for your expensive headphones do you?

    Check with your homeowners carrier. If you schedule it on a personal articles floater, it’s about $15 per year.

    Consider it a tax on people who are bad at math.

    I expect 35% of the premium goes to commission and another 35% to the insurance company for expense. Obviously not a good deal for the buyer –

    I said i wouldn’t reply to this but …eh what the hell. He probably gets more action from his iphone than his wife. (there is /was an application called ifap)….ie…porn for iphone.

    Doesn’t work on a droid though :(

    I heard about it from a guy at the SEC. Those guys are porn experts!

    Problem with putting it on the homeowners policy is that it’s going to have a $500 deductible.

    why would anyone pay $12 a month with a $199 deductible for an iphone when state farm insures them for $3 a month with a $0 deductible.
