    Is Samsung's own Protection Plan+ a better deal than SquareTrade or Verizon(Asusion) plans?

    for the Note5, the cost is $129 for 2-year coverage. Accidental damage and spills are covered. Deductible is $79.

    I've had the Verizon(Asurion) plan on my previous Note 2 & 3, but didn't get it for the Note 4, because it wasn't worth it anymore. Verizon tells me the deductible for the Note5 is $199, which makes absolutely no sense.

    The Samsung plan seems quite reasonable, but I have zero experience with them. There also seems to be very little discussion about it on the internet....

    One major deficiency for SquareTrade is that it doesn't cover loss or theft--only damage or defects. I believe Asurion covers loss and theft.

    Yes, and that's a big deal. I've had cell phones for 30 years, and never lost one or had one stolen -- but this one looks more enticing than the others.

    Certainly more enticing than that first one.

    Yeah, nobody stole it because it was too heavy to run away with. LOL

    True story: My late aunt had one of those in the very early 1990's. Someone tried to rob her coming out of a doctor's office. She used that giant phone and smashed into the mugger's head. Unfortunately, the mugger hit back and stabbed her in the stomach with a blade.(she turned out alright) The mugger got away with her purse. She ended up using that phone to call the police/

    I remember that unit, the bag phones (remember those) and then moving on the Moto "Flip" phone. Man, that was prehistoric times.

    Back to topic - if anyone gets a VZW N5 insured by Samsung, please report back here. I am still unable to do this and I would much rather be on the Protection Plus plan than Asurion's plan through VZW.

    I think the $199 for a used phone is ridiculous.

    On the legacy insurance plan, the deductible on asurion is $99 for the base note 5. On the current insurance plan though, it is higher
