I searched but don't see a similar thread. ZAGG is offering a two year smartphone warranty for $99 that covers unlocked phones, also covers water damage with a $59 deductable...I think it will be cheaper than paying monthly insurance premiums. Probably most savings if you will stay with your phone for ~2 years. Something to consider?

I would trust Squaretrade's amazing track-record over this. $125 for 2 years and it covers broken glass, drops, software/mechanical failure, water damage/immersion, etc...

Edit: 10% off @squaretrade with coupon "TENFTEN" :) = $112 for 2 years
OR
Edit 2: $30 off @squaretrade with coupon "FF30" = $95 for 2 years

Random question, if my gps is really bad on my phone, can I go to sprint and switch it for a refurb even if I don't have TEP? It's about 7 months old.. or am I just pretty much screwed?

At first this looks pretty good, but it says issues caused by "normal use" and the ZAGG Safe coverage explicitly covers unlocked/jailbroken phones...seems like maybe a better deal if you're a crackflasher, like me.

I would think that would be considered a hardware defect and should be covered under your Samsung warranty.

While that is true, this warranty for the price, is good enough for those of us that protect our phones and never ever lose em ;)

I've never lost a phone, just pointing out what may be a deciding factor in coverage for some. It would seem if you don't have a phone to send them, essentially, you won't be covered. I agree, it does look good for damage/defect, but I'd wait for a few hundred consumer reviews before taking the plunge.
