Default Inspire 4g Insurance

Is anyone getting full coverage (accidental damage, stolen) insurance for their new phone? Which one would you recommend?

The Best Buy Black Tie was $10/mo or 160 for 2 years. I passed and thought maybe I could find a cheaper provider.

EDIT: Anyone agree with this ? http://www.bankrate.com/brm/news/insurance/20070119_cell_phone_insurance_a1.asp

I didn't know there were different kinds of insurance for phones. I just have the $5 dollar insurance with AT&T, I am pretty sire that covers everything except water damage.

Oh I guess there is only 1 type. I was thinking of extended warranty too sorry. Is this in your features for ATT?

EDIT: Just enrolled. $5/month is nothing!

I had the insurance on my previous phone. The at&t rep said to replace the phone with the insurance was $125.00. I guess it's better than having to pay the $400.00 for a new one.

I got the insurance from best buy. There's no deductible and it covers everything. Also I can just have it added to my best buy credit card. With the payments I make each month I won't notice $10.

squaretrade has a $50 deductible unless the phone breaks due to a non-accidental defect.

I've never purchased insurance on my phones. I figure that over the last 10 years I've saved more than enough by not insuring to pay for multiple phones outright if I should need to replace one.
