    You can only get MetroGuard on the day you buy your phone and it's $5/month for each phone. Also there is a deductible you would have to pay for a replacement. $99 for the LG Connect.

    That cant be totally true. I have had my connect for a couple of months now. The just sent me a text message saying to reply to their text with the code to add metro guard to my line for 5 bucks a month.

    Yeah but if you follow that text it will give you the details. Must activate insurance the DAY you buy the phone. Sucks cause I got mine off the Bay and I would love insurance. Oh well. I'll be happy to buy another Esteem for 200 clams if that time comes again. :D

    Does anyone think that MetroPCS's so-called insurance is worth it ? I don't.

    I didn't think so either until now. My daughter just broke the screen on my LG Connect.

    if you're the type of person who breaks their phone every 3 months then yeah its worth it.

    other than that, no.

    Exactly. And isn't there a three (reconditioned) replacement per year maximum ?

    I don't get it. They're sending the text to people's phones. Obviously after it's bought saying to reply to get metro gaurd.

    Please reply to this text to get metro gaurd but please ignore this text as it doesn't apply to you?? :eek:

    Every three months??? Right now the LG Connect is $250 with rebates. Insurance is $5/month x 12 months = $60 + $99 deductible = $159.

    $160 to replace my phone!? Not worth it.

    But I'm not the type to drop my phone all the time and I don't have children.

    I bricked 2 LG Optimus and I only paid $10 for a new one each time and I didn't have insurance on them, bricking is the only time I ever break my phone. :cool:
