Mobile Phone Insurance
Mobile phone insurance is very likely to be one of the most important accessories you will ever buy for your phone, way more important than your average app, case or cover. The technical ability of even the most basic of mobile devices has increased many times over in the last few years and now most phones not only make calls and send text messages, they take photos, play music, record videos, play films, store masses of data, act as a satellite navigation system and surf the web; truly worthy of its popular new name, the smart phone.
Technology like this doesn’t come cheap and that’s why it’s important to make sure your handset is protected by a mobile phone insurance policy.
At Mobilephoneinsurance.com we understand just how important the mobile phone has become to the way in which we all live and run our lives and that’s why the cover we offer protects you and your device against loss, theft, accidental and water damage and can even give you worldwide cover whilst you are away on holiday.
Whether you have the latest smart phone or social networking phone, mobilephoneinsurance.com covers all mobile handsets including iPhones and iPads.
Whatever you do, don’t think that phones don’t cost much because networks give them away for free to customers taking out contracts. With the average smart phone costing between £300 and £400 to replace and the average iPhone costing upwards of £500, mobile networks heavily subsidise their handsets and aim to recoup the cost over the term of the contract. Contract periods have generally increased from 12 and 18 months to 24 months in recent years to reflect the growing cost of buying new mobile phones.
If you’re tied into a mobile contract and lose your phone or damage it beyond repair, you are still tied into that contract and will have to buy a new phone yourself. With mobile phone insurance you can pay just a few pounds extra each month for the peace of mind that if the worst happens to your phone, you’ll be sent a replacement or cash equivalent. A fantastic service and well worth those few pounds extra per month.
According to figures from the network Orange, in 2010, over 850,000 mobile phones were dropped down the toilet !! With hundreds of thousands more dropped in puddles, baths, washing up bowls or on the floor, accidental damage is a very realistic end for your phone and making sure you’re covered is essential.
A recent survey by a major national newspaper revealed that more people would rather lose their purse or wallet than their mobile phone, showing their growing importance in all our lives. Ironically, it is estimated that only 30% of mobile devices are covered by insurance. Don’t put your mobile world at risk, insure your mobile phone today.
