Hello All,

I have my lovely iPhone but after switching I don't' recall ever setting up any of the insurance plans.. With my Nextel service, I had 2 insurance plans that they charged me monthly for lost/stolen and use damage to the phone. The charge was around $$4.95 /mo.

God forbid I loose or break my iPhone, I would have to buy a new one. Does ATT or Apple have a insurance plan for this? if so, how much?

yes new phones like these especially when they don't have many in stock, they don't allow insurance for the first few months. When i bought a SLVR when it first came out they didn't let me get the insurance until after 3 months.

AT&T doesn't offer insurance on smartphones and other similar devices.

The above is correct. AT&T does not offer insurance for any of its smartphones and the iPhone is no different. Applecare will soon be available for the iPhone but only extends the manufacturer's warranty to three years; it will not cover theft, loss, accidental damage, etc.

Just be very careful.

i know of a website that sells mobile phone insurance (www.mobileprotech.com) but it seems the whole website doesn't even function any longer.

anyone know of another site/company that sells insurance inside the U.S.?

everyone should invest in an american express card. when you buy with one, you get a 1 year extended manufacturers warranty (which is good because Apple warranties blow), and you get theft, accidental damage, and lost item insurance for the initial 90 days following the purchase for up to $1000. I've used it before for an xbox360 which unfortunately took a nose dive off the top of my tv--its really a great option.
