    Did anybody get insurance put on their X? After what happened with my Eris, I decided to do it. I do plan to get a case down the road for the X. I may or not keep the insurance then.

    I didn't, I got a 1 year contract so I figure it's half the risk.

    I wouldn't say it's half the risk.

    Not just Insurance but the TEC (Insurance + Extended Warranty) for 7.99/month on both of them.

    You may want to contact CS about the insurance. If you have the wrong kind it is not valid and just insurance on an advanced device is 6.00/month where a regualar feature phone is 4.99/month.

    I never got insurance but got talked into it for my Eris. About a week later it was stolen. I called up Asuron and had a brand new Eris the next morning.

    A+ service

    Def. Have my X Covered.

    I got the insurance offered through Verizon. I bought my dx from best buy and the sales guy really tried talking me into getting geeksquad protection. I just didn't think it was worth it, I have terrible luck so i wanna be covered for lost and theft too!

    do you have to purchase your phone from verizon to get asurion insurance? i know best buy has their own insurance but what if you purchase from another party but want asurion? just call customer service to add it?

    No, you don't have to purchase from verizon for the insurance to apply.


    Yepp.

    I purchased a phone a while ago (Not android) from best buy, but it was a leading phone at the time.

    Just call up verizon and they'll add insurance to your phone. The only time you ever have to deal with Ausrion is if you need to file a claim (lost/stolen/damaged).

    the call takes all of 2 seconds. ;)


    All the best,
    Eric
