Self-insurance might be the answer if you don't destroy your phone very often. Also, remember that every phone has a one-year warranty from the manufacturer.
I hear you, but what if you hose two phones in a year. Then another one the next year. I hate the cost myself, but it gives peace of mind for such an expensive device.
