Re: Insurance

Hi EthanBowers, 

While we offer the Geek Squad Protection plan, it's not necessarily the best option for all of our customers. As such, I'm happy to say most carriers offer a period of time for you to add their coverage instead, and we may even be able to add it on for you if it's through a carrier! If you are not interested in a carrier plan though, I would encourage you to check with the company to find out how long you have to add the device to their plan. 

I hope this helps!

Re: Insurance

I know you can buy Cell Phone insurance from other companies.  But I would reallly want to check into any issues with getting service on them before I commited.   Especilly if it is not a major brand like State Farm, Liberty, Prudendual etc.


Really check the discalimers on any plan.


Personaly I won't buy any plan other than Best Buys plan.  In the last 10 years I have had 3 replacement phones that their plan covered.
