    All this done in the middle of the contract. I have an X now, but might get an iphone 4. Will my insurance transfer over to the iphone?

    Is there any hassle changing to the iphone from a droid x, other than the normal *228 etc?

    No it won't change over, the insurance is different prices. You have to activate an iPhone with iTunes also, not *228.

    Call VZW and add insurance. They'll tell you the rate, deductible and if your device Is eligible for Insurance.

    You can only add insurance to a newly purchased device, within 30 days. For an iPhone, it's 10.99 a month... deductible is $169 for 16gb... and it covers absolutely everything (i.e. lost, stolen damaged, extended manufacture warranty).

    By newly purchased, you mean FROM Verizon though?

    I would be getting this iphone from a user on this board, most likely. Not Verizon.

    New from VZW, yes. You can't add insurance on equipment you bring.
