Why mobile phone insurance / iPhone insurance is worth considering
Mobile Phones and iPhones are often free when you sign up to a monthly contract because they are heavily subsidised by the network. These phones are often worth £500, £600 or even £700 (the top of the range iphone 5s is worth £709* for example).
If your mobile phone is lost, stolen or damaged beyond repair then you have 2 choices, either buy a new phone (at the unsubsidised price) or pay off the contract and start again with a new phone and a new contract. Let's say you signed up to an 18 month contract at £30 a month and you lost your phone 3 months later, to pay off the contract would cost 15 x £30 = £450!
According to British Crime Survey data, one mobile phone is stolen every 12 seconds in the UK and even more are lost, water damaged or dropped. Even if your phone can be repaired, with most phones now having touch screens such as the iPhone, the cost of repairs has increased dramatically. This is why insurance is definitely worth considering.

Home insurance more often than not doesn't cover mobiles and if it does the excess can be hundreds of pounds and if you do claim you will lose your no claims bonus.
Insurance at point of sale
The mobile phone insurance offered by the retailer selling your phone is often very expensive. To insure your iPhone at the Carphone Warehouse will cost £13.99 a month! To insure it at O2 will cost £15 a month!
