Hi Jason. I have a droid and have the GSBTPlan. I looked in my paperwork that I stapled all together when I bought the droid and I did not receive a copy of the coverage. What I was told was that I can do practically anything to the phone except submerge it in water and it would be covered. Question? The face of the phone got a little bit wet. All the lights were on and I was still receiving messages as the alerts were going off even though the screen was black. It was almost out of juice. When I plugged it in the lights were all still lit up. This morning, it's dead. Will the plan cover this?

Yup, just as Nokia said, its an expensive lesson.
I dropped my Iphone 4 in water and I had to pay $200 to replace it.
You better believe I purchased the insurance this time around.

Yep. That's why the employee recommended the GSBTP plan at time of purchase. This is gonna cost you $800: $200 for the original phone, $600 for the new one.
Regardless if he purchased the GSBTP it wouldn't be covered so it wouldn't matter if he had that. Another good reason to have insurance on your phone through your homeowners insurance.
If you check popular auction sites you can find a used one for 150-300 depending on how well it was cared for, you likely won't be able to get insurance on it though, unless you call your insurance company and see if they will insure it.

Really the insurance through your wireless carrier is the best even with the deductible because it will cover everything water damage to theft. Also you will not have to wait weeks for your phone to get fixed and have to pay $150 deposit for a loaner. And to put your cell phone on your home owners insurance is not a wise choice, to file a claim for a cell phone would raise your insurance and could even at the worse case cause them to drop your coverage.

After thinking it over a lot, Ive decided to go with the ATT insurance. Yes, the 199 deductible sucks, and if something happens to my phone like it gets wet or something I will probably wish I did the best buy plan that would have gotten me a replacement without paying the 200 bucks, but at the end of the day I want the piece of mind of knowing that if I lose my phone somewhere i can get it replaced.
Its a hard decision to make, basically you would have to be a fortune teller to know what coverage would suit you best in the case something happens. I hope I make the right decision, part of me still wonders if I should get the best buy plan. Sigh, decisions decisions...
