Insurance for older smartphones and iPhones

There is one thing that the majority of smartphone and iPhone Insurance providers have in common but can you guess what it is?

It’s the age of the smartphone or iPhone that is covered under the policy.

At the moment the majority of smartphone and iPhone insurance providers stipulate that the phone covered, must be less than 12 months old at inception.

We all know that more and more new monthly mobile phones are taken out on 24 month contracts. This means that you may insure your smartphone for 12 months when new but once this has ended, your phone becomes uninsurable with the majority of providers, even though you may have 12 months left on the contract and a replacement phone will still cost the earth.
