S02 E05 - Handset Insurance - Saviour or Swindle?

After a series of handset losses and breakages Ewan's been exercising his network operator-supplied handset insurance... something he'd forgotten he'd signed-up for. But do these policies offer good value for money and how should you choose who to buy from? 

The team discuss:

  • Why we do (and don't) buy handset insurance (and a few war stories).
  • The difference between network operator-provided insurance, independent providers and other types of policies.
  • What we want (and value) from our network operators.

Please let us have your opinions on the current legal wranglings over patents going on across the mobile industry - we love to hear them in advance of our episode on the subject.
