S3 Deductible = $250(speculation) + $5/mo insurance fee = 50 Months(over 4 years) before you hit the cost of a 2nd phone.

Yes, but my math is compared to my current plan with sprint.. that is not android.. 1000 minutes at 50 per line..not including taxes fess etc.. with come to 110...ill be doing.. 85 with metro.. having the GS3 on the 55 Unilmited plan.. with 2 phones.. that's saving 25 per month for me.. I can make up the cost in 1.6677... on years worth in time.. just in time to upgrade to any new phone at that time.. and not paying the insurance or deductible if the deed happens.. I do not live an extreme life style.. so it makes no sense for me.. to each his own.. I might consider it.. dunno.

Adding insurance to the GS3 will still save you $20/mo compared to your old plan. And give you $480 towards a new phone if nothing happens in 2 years. All it takes is a thief or a toilet drop. I've only had my phone stolen once in the last 10 years and never damaged one. But that 1 theft hurt, and inspired me to always have insurance. Hopefully your plan works out for you though. Good luck.

I'd agree with this comment, I've been burned once and also saved once. Insurance is well worth it IMO.

The Galaxy Nexus pre release thread was pretty intense, not sure how many responses it got, but it was over 50,000 anyway. The Gnex Watering Hole in the Lounge currently has just over 22,000. The SGS3 Watering Hole has about 14,000. There's also the Longest Thread at about 44K.

Oh, whilst I'm here, I removed a couple of posts. Please remember we are a family friendly, English speaking forum.

Thank you.

Agreed. And it's doubtful the deductible would be that high but I really dont know. Guess you could base the price off the deductible for the lighttray maybe.

Regardless, I dont care how careful a person is all it takes is that one drop that will send your S3 into phone heaven. Plus, after a year or so, if your phone is beat to all hell or suddendly doesn't turn on, well guess what? You can get another one. At half the price you would pay for a new one.

You say your cheap but yet your willing to shell out over 500 bucks for a cell phone? lol. I dont care if you lived in house made of bubble wrap, you dont have to drop the phone to tear it up.

IMO, one does have to pay attention to the nitty gritty of the insurance situation for Your Particular phone.

My DX had been out quite awhile when I got it, I didn't get insurance for it. After a year I did break the screen but got another DX like new for $100. It's now almost 2 years since I got the phone and at $100 spent over that time and having 2 DXs that work, I'm ahead of the insurance game.

I DO think it's Completely Insane for example, to have insurance on the Motion. Why? You can get a brand new, not refurb phone for 2x just one year's insurance coverage. (To me, that's a not often mentioned Benefit of the Motion, you save about $70 a year insurance owning one. Or, you Should Save that anyway...)

OTOH, for a $500+ phone to me it's a Duh, no brainer to carry insurance at least for the first 2 years you own the phone.

Depends on how you look at it. I keep insurance on my phone for a different reason.

I had a Samsung galaxy indulge. Hated the phone! When it finally died I called in the insurance claim to asurion. Because the indulge had been discontinued, I got to take my pick of better phones (choice between galaxy attain, esteem and connect). Many people have had this happen for them.

So you could look at it as an investment for an upgrade lol. When the motion gets discontinued ill put in a claim, pay $39 bucks and get an upgraded phone.

Besides, insurance makes sense for me. I let my 2 year old play with my phone when he's whining and we are out (kids games and movies). So my phones are always in danger of being destroyed when he decides to throw it. ;-)

Better get insurance guys you would be paying 5 dollar more each month but when you think about it that 5 dollar could of been thrown away anyway so lets all take insurance and not regret it I can assure you fixing this phone digitizer and stuff is almost impossible without buying the whole assembly which cost almost 200. Plus any losers can steal the phone anytime it happens to the best of us. So don't forget the insurance my childs.

FYI, the S3 IS on the current Metro 'showance page.

Did you know it's deductible is $129?

That with one year's 'showance is (for all intents and purposes) $200.

That's ripping up on 1/2 the price of a whole new phone.

'showance = insurance
deductible = what you pay for a new phone should you lose your and file a claim.
A link would be nice though, cause i checked PhoneClaim.com - Metro PCS cell phones replaced fast! File a claim for your lost, stolen, or damaged phone, and nada

Nice conversation about insurance. I'm also the type to not break my phones, but you really never know. Anything can happen. I think ima end up paying that extra $5 a month. I want the phone already tho, sheesh!

I got the feeling the end is very close I called the Semoran Store and they told me they will get the phones by Monday but the Corporate store I'm sure they will sell it first so we have to check the website more closely starting today

Storm please send me the number in Obt.

Quite a few of us are in Central Florida.
We should all sync a day and go get the SGS3 from the same store!
They'd go like WTF!?!

ricky still busy at work he ran from metropcs store to back to work he tells me he will send more pics later and that blue and white are confirmed colors. and i believe confirmed price was $549 but ill have to ask him later when he gets a break again to confirm that and no word of rebate so first buyers be ready to dish out $549 and expect no rebates those that get it next month might get a rebate.

is $549 with taxes?
Or is metro pulling a fast one on us and adding $50 to the price out of thin air?
