This is a new thread that was started elsewhere, talking about insuring your mobile and the cost of repairs.

It astonishes me that people dont have insurance cover for these things.
My insurance provider will replace my personal mobile for a $100 excess, this is covered under my contents insurance.
Even Telecoms mobile insurance is great value for those who have at least one major accident a year.
My insurance-covered customers ring and say "My phone is playing up, i have an insurance letter", and I replace their phone same day.
All my quotes specify the type of damage to the phone if known, and the fact that the phone is "probably beyond ecomical repair - can be confirmed for $45 by our service agent", and we have NEVER had a claim refused. (I do lots of these)

My phones are covered under my insurance however it has an excess of $250. I was considering using the vodafone insurance (read about it somewhere but was told that it was for only for On account users.

I am unsure whether vodas offering applies to phones brought outside of NZ apply for their insurance though.

Telecoms insurance product is not available for 'Prepaid' Im sure it would be the same the Vodafone and their 'Prepay' system.

Unless Vodafone's policy has changed they cover any phones even if they are purchased overseas. All they are after to cover you is the IMEI number.

The other thing to note with Telecom's insurance over household is that there is no loss of no claims bonus'

and the excess is only $85, whereas i know you can get cheaper contents premiums by raising your excess (anywhere up to a $1500 excess i think)
