Has anyone bothered to take out insurance with Phones 4 U on their DHD?
Don't ever buy insurance from the likes of p4u or cpw. You most likely don't need/want it and if you do it can be bought much cheaper from a third party.
Who would you recommend getting insurance with? I managed to get a good deal at P4U and by adding their insurance on top makes a not so good deal. And if they're not very good well then I wont bother, but I am worried about something happening to my phone and not being able to afford a new one if need be.
If you have house insurance, it may be worth checking if that covers it. Otherwise I'm not sure, I generally avoid insurance, the amount over the year could often pay for a repair/secondhand replacement if something goes wrong
Who do you bank with?.
If you bank with Lloyds, take one of their paid current accounts out.
Here is also a good place to start
As others have said I would suggest home insurance (a lot cover this now) and bank account extras. If those fail Google for it. I guarantee it'll cost less than p4u.
Can't recommended a particular firm. Don't tend to buy any of this kind of insurance or extended warranty myself.
Cheers for your replies people. Yeah I came across compare the market and I think I've found something that suits me. You see I'm quite worried about losing my phone, I have been known to do this many times.

I have mine insured through my bank account, part of the package. But remember, this is like a regular insurance claim & can take weeks, or even months, before you get a replacement.
I have the P4U insurance leaflet infront of me and it states you are covered for loss.
That's the thing isn't it, on a 24 month contract you're paying a total of nearly
Another way to think of it. Put the money aside every month. If after a year, you lose it, bear in mind a comparable phone will cost less in a years time and your
