My wife and I each had Curve 8330s for 1.5 years, and each used our 2 insurance replacements. My sister-in-law has also used her 2 replacements in just a few months. This isn't the kind of thing you can nickel-and-dime because the risks Way out-weigh the cost.

I have insurance on my phone and have never used it, now my sister and her husband bought blackberry storms last spring and did not get the insurance because they were being cheap, and they said they were cheap and didnt want to spend the extra money, well after 2 months her husband dropped his in the toilet, he did get lucky and I told him to put it in a bag of rice and that did the trick for the most part, screen would stick once and a while, then over the summer my sister took her daughter to a concert and lost her phone, she had to go back to her T9 phone that was 4 years old, then one of the kids cracked the screen on her husbands phone, it still works but barely. Now they are in contract until May 2011.....but hey they did save $7 a month for a few months

no joy with Assurion
Dropped my Droid into Salt Water..toast. Verizon store wasted a couple hours of my time only to tell me they wouldn't help and I have to file with Assurion.
Assurion doesn't have any Droids so all this insurance I've paid for gets me a 4 year old flip phone I had in the drawer while I wait....nice

I had a crappy Kyocera camera phone that ended up taking a few tumbles and randomly shut off. After having to pay full price for a new phone, I purchased phone insurance, and informed my sisters - who are on my phone plan- that they would not have a phone without insurance. I'd rather pay $7 a month than have to pay for a brand new Droid, especially because I am a bit klutzy with things. Better to be safe than sorry.

how would they not replace your Droid? i had them replace one not too long ago....... maybe you were a jerk to them or something LOL? just trying to figure out why they would say they do not have a phone in stock that is not rare what so ever and that they obviously cover........ very odd i agree with you tho you did not get what you paid for ONE BIT. i would be very very upset if i was in your shoes and that would not go down if i was you

Insurance is a personal judgment call that each needs to make. There are definitely more options for replacement than just insurance or full retail. You can buy used or refurb from the carrier.
