My Cell Phone Mishap + Enter To Win $40 From Amazon

I am a bit embarassed to admit how lost I would be without my cell phone~I use it to keep in touch with my family, friends, plan playdates, read & send email, and most importantly capture cherished images and videos of my kids. So you can imagine my dismay when I dropped my phone a few months ago and the screen cracked.  I dropped the phone on GRASS, so I was completely shocked the screen shattered.  Seriously, I have 2 toddlers, that poor phone had been thrown, stompoed on, and a wide varities of other mishaps, and grass was what finally shattered it!  My phone is a touch phone so this rendered it pretty much useless.  My first instinct was panic-how would I talk to my family?  Then I had a thought that immediately set my mind at ease-I had purchased insurance on the phone!  Shew! 

I went home, found all my documents and was amazed at how easy and fast it was to get a new phone!  It came within 24 hours and all I had to do was send back the broken phone and pay my deductable-a small price to pay for a new phone!  The insurance plan saved my hundreds of dollars since my phone was only a few months old and I was nowhere near time for a replacement. Here is a bit more about the insurance plan I used:

The complete Asurion protection package, available through most wireless companies, empowers you with the apps and services that put you in the driver’s seat – everything you need for complete peace of mind so you can enjoy using your smartphone. You’ll rest easy knowing you’re protected with Asurion, whether you need technology to secure your data privacy against growing mobile threats, need a device expert who’s just a call or click away, or coverage to replace your phone as quickly as the next day.

    My teenage son dropped & broke a protective cover for his phone & he did have a warranty to replace it. The only problem was you had to keep the damaged cover to send back to get the new one. He didn’t know & didn’t keep it. :-( At least he knows now if there is a next time, which I hope there isn’t!:-)

  3. I have Ausrion on my phone, having a iPhone makes it expensive to pay for the deductible, was close to the cost of me paying for the phone again. Thankfully I was able to find it.

    My golden retriever puppy decided my droid looked like an oddly shaped dog biscuit. The phone survived, but it carried battle scares for the rest of its life.
