Insure My Mobile Phone announced that its system had been upgraded before the phone's UK launch to allow iPhone 5 owners to take advantage of the best insurance cover available.
"It's a constant concern for us that gadget and mobile phone owners aren't aware of their insurance choices," said David Quick, MD of Insure My Mobile Phone. "So many people simply accept the insurance offered when they get the phone. Others believe they are saving money by refusing that insurance, but find out later that they aren't fully covered."
The iPhone 5 is a very desirable object so getting it onto the list of products that can be covered was a priority for Insure My Mobile Phone. The capability to cover (link) the new phone was therefore built into systems before the September launch.
"Policies are available for phones and other gadgets at far better rates than most airtime providers' standard policies, "said David, "and they generally have better cover too; how many of them cover the downloads you've paid for? With the iPhone 5 having 4G customers will be downloading content more than ever before, and it all adds up."
Many consumers choose to rely on existing policies. Of course a mobile phone will be covered in some circumstances under a normal household contents or car policy, but not all.
"Most people aren't aware that if they drop their phone between their front gate and getting into their car," said David, "they might not be covered by either their household policy or their car insurance."
The Yuletide message from Insure My Mobile Phone is for consumers to shop around for insurance which suits their phone and their way of life. They should be able to get better cover for their new iPhone 5, or any other gadget, and save money too.
