  • Requirements of filing a claim- If you want to file a claim, you’ll generally have to go through several steps. For example, if your cell phone is stolen, you’ll probably have to file a police report. You also may need to bring your phone in to a specific location for inspection if you’re filing a claim due to a malfunction.
  • The deductible- Most cell phone insurance involves a deductible that you’ll have to pay when you file a claim. Shop around for the lowest deductible or your insurance might not be worthwhile.
  • Understand possible reasons for denial- Possible reasons for a claim denial with cell phone insurance include malfunctions prior coverage in a manufacturer’s warranty for a malfunction or denial because damage was caused by an owner’s attempts to modify the cell phone. It’s a good idea to review your warranty before purchasing insurance, and if you have a habit of tampering with your cell phones on your own it’s important to understand that any resulting damage probably won’t be covered.
