    This is the first phone I have ever gotten insurance on. I did it because of replacement cost that may not be covered by warranty

    I do have it. I always get insurance when the unit cost as much as this to replace. I've used it several times to on other devices but not on my Storm fortunately.
    I had a Samsung i730 that fell out of my shirt pocket into the Long Island Sound off my boat. I waved good bye as I watched it disappear into the darkness...and I had an HTC Touch that I left on my car seat, with an open sunroof, forgot, thunderstorm, the rest is history. Both times device replaced next day. $50 deductable though so you have to keep an eye on the FULL retail price of your device to make sure it stays worth it. Like when my MOTO Q started retailing at $99 it wasn’t worth the insurance anymore.

    I have insurance. I am notoriously hard on a cell phone and with the replacement cost of this thing it is definitely a good investment for me. Thank goodness I have not had to use it yet, but better safe then sorry.

    I definitely have insurance on mine. The good thing about the insurance is that it covers ANYTHING. I had it on a previous phone... that got dropped in a bucket of water. Normal manufacturer's warranty in no way will cover this. Cracked screen? Yup, the insurance covers this. Not the mfr's warranty. The insurance covers ANYTHING that may happen to your phone. Chewed up by a dog? Yup... covered(I know this from personal experience). All in all it is well worth the cost of $5-6/month(i forget the exact price)... but if you have Verizon you want the Assurion insurance plan. $50 deductible. Takes maybe 2 days to get your new phone. I got my previous phone the day after I filed the claim.... and I filed the claim at about 5:30 in the evening. I can't say enough about how awesome having insurance is.

    Well thanks for all the comments..

    I'm going to go ahead and give Verizon a call.

    I have had it longer than 15 days but I know it has been under 1 month so I will see what they have to say.


    EDIT:
    It's actually been 17 days and they are giving me a hard time about it. Someone is supposed to contact me within 3 days. I may have to return and re buy the phone in order to get the insurance.
