    Does anyone here actually pay for the insurance? I guess it depends on how often you kill your phone, but at $8 a month, you will be paying $100 a year, plus the $150-200 deductible if you actually need it. So if you are less then 50% likely to kill your phone in a year you are probably better off skipping this. My other question would be if they track phone killers and refuse to offer them insurance?
