Found 23rd Feb 2010
I have a query I managed to get a Blackberry Bold 9700 on Orange contract and would like advice on the best way to insure this phone.

I really dont lose my phones but I generally always damage it, so do you think I should take out
a) Orange Care cost £6 per month or
b) go for other insurance company? if so which you would recommend? or
c) Self insure

Friends & family have had bad experience with mobile insurance in the past especially when it comes to not paying out on loss & theft, so I am careful and always read the terms & conditions



Barclays do a current account that for £5 gives phone insurance plus other added benefits:

name it on your house insurance - approx £15 for the year

Be careful you are comparing like for like. Orange care covers you for lost, stolen, damaged, or faults (i.e includes extended warranty) whereas the Bank provided ones normally just cover you for lost or theft, plus their excess is far higher (typically £35) against Orange's £15 admin fee.
