No iPhone Insurance from AT&T

I’m disappointed to learn that AT&T may not offer insurance coverage for the iPhone, according to a Think Secret source.

Without insurance, iPhone owners will be gambling each time they leave home with their $500-$600 devices. I’ve had a handful of cell phones lost/stolen/broken in the past, and I’m sure I’m not the only one.

Nevertheless, there is hope: “An AppleCare for iPhone plan is in the works that would cover the hardware for a period of two years,” Think Secret reports.

Apple offers a similar AppleCare plan for the iPod, which includes 2 years of coverage for $59. That’s about $5 a month for a $250-$350 device. The iPhone plan will likely cost more.

  1. If you are looking for good insurance coverage for your new iphone, check out square trade. They will insure your iphone in the first 30 days of iphone purchase. 8G for $48 and 16G for $59.

  2. I found these guys who are offering the Protect Cell insurance (researched Protect Cell and they have been around for a while) on iPhones. I covered both mine and my wifes 16GB iPhones for less than $5.00 a month. Their policy covers everything like loss, theft, etc.
