What you need to know aboutCell Phone Insurance?

There are definite steps on how best to get cell phone insurance:

For most tablets a standard household policy will usually cover against damage and theft – but because tablets and cell phones are mobile devices and are usually away from the home when theft or damage takes place, you will need an all-risks policy or section in your policy to cover your cell phones and other mobile devices.

It is important to check whether your device is covered under your unspecified all-risk insurance – in most instances these will require specification and items such as cell phones, GPS devices and laptops will need to be specified.

These will fall under specified cover:

  • Always bear in mind that specified items need to be insured for their replacement value.
  • Insurers will replace your device with either a new one or pay out the full replacement value should you need to claim.
  • Your broker will ask for the receipt to verify the amount you paid for the phone and also for the serial number.
  • It is advisable to keep copies of all the relevant receipts.
  • If lost or stolen your cell phone will be replaced with the same or close to the product that got lost.
  • Bought your phone overseas? This is where you need to inform your insurance broker.

It is important to check your policy for exclusions and requirements – remember that most cell phone insurance policies don’t cover software and data recovery.
