    Opinion wanted......

    Advertisement



    I wanted to know that how many of the t-mob blackberry owners have there device insured from T-mob?
    They charge arounf $6 per month and a $110/ deductable and it covers every thing on the phone , like physical damage, water damage, theft etc..
    I was wondering that, is it worth getting the phone insured?
    Please help me make up my mind I have 1 day left to opt for that option and I am confused!

    Its a ripoff in my opinion because by the time something does happen you will probably pay for the full value of the phone with all the monthly fees and deductible. I think that if you google it you will find 3rd party insurance that has a better deal anyhow. Oh and did TMobile tell you that there was a point that you could no longer get insurance thrue them, cause that sounds weird. I have been with them since they were voicestream and never heard about an insurance deadline. I think you can add it at anytime, but like I said before its a ripoff.

    You need to insure the phone within 14 days of purchase, which is also the "trial" period in which you can cancel service without the cancellation fee.

    Well, I have insurance on my phone. But to be truthful damage doesn't worry me, I take good care of my handsets! But my main concern when my phone gets stolen, or lost!!! Without the insurance you have to pay full price for a new phone plus for a new sim card! It really depends on your situation, if rather pay 6 bucks every month, because I have that piece of mind if my phone ever turns up missing! As far as damage on a phone, if you go without it generally mansfactuars warranty will cover the handset up to 1 year

    Just so you are aware, T-Mobile is NOT and insurance carrier. The insurance offered IS 3rd party right out of the Box. So the prices ( Which i agree are too high and not worth it) Are not T-Mobiles

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~i agree that it is too expensive and I would look for a 3rd party insurance company.

    A pet peeve of mine is when someone doesnt have insurance and something happens to their phone, then they try to blame someone else like a rep or their carrier in general. Just take responsibility for you not choosing to add insurance in the first place.

    I have 5 phones on my account, only 1 is covered by insurance. You guessed it, my 8703e.

    It all depends on the situation whether its worth it or not.

    I have the insurance on my pearl. I am always carefull with my stuff and all but sometimes, try as you may, stuff happens. I took chances with my old iPAQ. But then the screen broke in an airport. If I had the insurance things would have been simple to replace it. But I had to instead source a screen and long story short, it just sucked.

    I'm usually pretty good with phones. I mean, I have had about 15 cell phones to date and have never broken or lost one of them.. With that said, the Pearl is the absolute best and most expensive I have had and I'm thinking seriously about taking some insurance on it. It certainly can't hurt.

    Re: Opinion wanted......

    Personally I don't have insurance for my cingular pearl and really don't need it. It would be nice to have I guess but I don't really want to pay for it. I never drop or mess my phone up so its no big deal. If you are a clumsy person or think you will mess your bb up somehow then I would recommend getting it but otherwise its no biggy.

    Hope this helps,
