    If it's past 30 days, I don't think Verizon will let you add insurance. You can try adding a personal electronics policy to your home owner's/renter's insurance, but that's only allowed in some states with some insurance companies.

    There might be squaretrade policies you can buy too. I've never dealt with them, so I don't know if they're worth it.

    Verizon, Asurion and SquareTrade all require you signing up for warranty/insurance within 30 days and are very strict about the 30 day limit.

    I bought my Droid from Walmart about 3 weeks ago. Works great, no problems yet.

    But, I'd be interested in purchasing insurance for this, too. If I take the Walmart receipt to Verizon, will they allow me to get insurance on it?

    AND,

    If something happens to it (lost, stolen, whatever), how much do I have to pay to get another Droid?

    Will they ask to see the Droid before they insure it? (It's rooted right now.)

    You should be able to call Verizon to add the Asurion protection right over the phone-no checks/inspection involved, just call them from it so they know it is functioning properly. It is $6.99 a month if I am right. Since they deem the Droid an "advanced" device, the replacement deductible is $89- the rates just went up recently.

    Still better than $500 for a new Droid if something happens to it...

    EDIT: My own question..With an insurance claim do they give you a NEW droid or just a "Like-New" device?..

    Its $6 a month and they will give you a refurb unless they are out of refurbs, then you might get lucky and get a new one.

    From the verizon website...

    You have 30 days from the date of activation of a new device to enroll in Extended Warranty or Total Equipment Coverage.
