My entire life is on my phone. With the invention of cloud technology, I can go a day or so without my phone, but really, it is hard. What about you? Are you like me? Do you have your schedules, your text conversations, your apps, your photos and videos – all on your phone?
I am seriously dependent on this phone. I have never purchased a cell phone without adding on an insurance plan. And I have used those plans before and they are totally worth it financially.
Now that that is out of that way…let’s chat! I have lots of stories of times I have used Asurion – I’ve been a faithful user of their service for 7 years. Let’s just say I’m accident prone and they save me tons of money.
One time I tried to save money by not purchasing insurance. I thought I’d just buy a new phone on eBay. Do NOT buy used phones on eBay. Let’s just say the previous owner failed to delete photos from the albums. gross.
That is a true story (Oh how I wish it wasn’t).
Then I bought insurance and used it.
Cell phone under water
I was chatting with my friend on Skype via video. She stopped chatting and just started to laugh. I heard *sploosh!* and my heart sunk. I slowly turned around (to the sound of my friends giggles) and saw Lucy standing over a bucket of water, my iPhone at the bottom.
Asurion saved me the cost of a new iPhone. And those are not cheap.
Or the time I dropped my phone at a garage sale and rolled over it. I searched frantically at home for it and retraced my steps only to see it crushed by the curb. ugh.
Are you like me? Do you use cell phone insurance?
Here is a fun little infographic from Asurion:
