After travelling a lot with work and not having internet access all that much i decided to get one of these "smart phones" i hear so much of.

Went cheap and got one second hand off ebay instead of tying into an expensive long contract - however it now looks like no one will insure a second hand mobile phone - even though it's technically brand new!

Anyone know of a company that does mobile insurance to cover a second hand mobile?

    Check with your household insurance provider. Your phone may well already be covered by the contents policy.

    If it didn't cost that much, is insurance needed?
    Carlsberg don't make cycle clothing, but if they did it would probably still not be as good as Assos

    House insurance?

    Phone insurance is a rip off as people use it to get "free" upgrades and the premiums skyrocket as a result.
    I am in my 11th year insurance free and no claims. The amount saved will buy any phone.
    None of the above should be taken seriously, and certainly not personally.
