Virgin Mobile offers phone insurance

Earlier in the year Boost Mobile made something of a splash by offering handset insurance. Most prepaid carriers do not offer this, so it was novel at the time. Now it appears that Sprint’s other prepaid arm, Virgin Mobile, is prepared to do the same. It costs $5 per month, and you can see the deductible chart above. As expected, it’s $100 per claim for the higher end devices, and a bit lower as you move down the line. You have to register for insurance within 15 days of buying a new handset.
