Default Considering 7130e ... question about carrier insurance

Please Login to Remove!

Hi forum,

I'm considering getting a 7130e through Verizon, and wondering what the general consensus is about getting carrier insurance (i.e. accident / loss / damage insurance through VZW). I've never had a blackberry device, but I've heard that they are typically considered to be pretty reliable. I'm normally pretty careful with my phones (no problems in the past), but of course you never know.... I pretty much work a desk job (engineering) - so shouldn't be much abuse there.

Anyway, I couldn't find much discussion about this topic searching the forums, so I thought I'd ask the question.

Thanks in advance.

I dont tend to drop my phones either, but if I did I would likely have damage I think. Car accidents maybe? could happen. If a UFO nabbed me and did the probe on my BB I think insurance would cover it!

could happen! Anyway, I have found the best way to prevent a problem is to prepare for it.
