The most common claims are for lost or stolen phones.

Customers can enroll any time up to 30 days past the activation of the iPhone. Signing up works through the MobileProtect app, and claims work through the company's weblink which is available 24/7.

Costs of coverage are $12 per month, with a deductible of $100, $150 or $200, depending on the iPhone model.

    Very expensive. I had Apple replace an iPhone for $99 after it got wet. So why would anyone need this with that type of monthly fee and deductible.

    Check with your auto/home insurer …

    I've had my iPhone 3G (soon iPhone 4!) AND MacBook Pro covered 100% (no deductible as cost was negligible) for about $6/mo. through State Farm. Much more peace of mind when I'm out and about as I know it's covered should anything happen (TimeMachine backups are at home, and there's DropBox, so data's good, too). ^_^
