I just received my Storm on Tuesday and honestly, I LOVE my Blackberry Storm. Right now I'm trying to determine if I should get insurance put on it or not. I've heard cases where insurance is mainly a big rip off but at the same time, if I don't get insurance on it, I'd have to pay full retail price...(199.99 I believe).
Btw, I just switched from Alltel to Verizon, b/c 1. I hate alltel and 2. in my area, they didn't merge.
If you break a phone or device, and have the insurance, when you report it to VZW to get a replacement, you pay the deductable, and unless you specify you want a brand new phone and not a refurb, then they will send you a referb. When you call to get it replaced, you have to specify that you want a brand new device.
"New insurance for advanced devices (includes any device with a full HTML browser) is $7.99 a month and now have a $89.00 deductible"
Didn't realize the cost had gone up a couple of weeks back. I have had mine for a few months now so I am on the old coverage.
