Affordable iPhone insurance for accidental damage and theft
About InsuranceForiPhones.Com After my 3rd broken or stolen iPhone (I only blame myself) it was time to find some insurance. I thought about insurance after my 2nd drop but couldn't find an affordable option. Then I found Worth Ave. Group. I paid 63 dollars for the policy, half the price of squaretrade. When my phone was stolen afterward they replaced it for just a 50 dollar deductible. So for 113 dollars, I got a brand new iPhone. Since I wasn't eligible for an upgrade with AT&T, it was going to cost 500 for a new phone! On ebay it was at least 600 for a new 16GB iPhone 3GS. You do the math! And THAT is why I started this site. Hopefully I'll save some of you from having a broken phone and no insurance!
HzO has finalized its “WaterBlock” technology and it debuted last week at the Consumer Electronics Show. This waterproofs your phone and allows it to be fully functional while in any kind of liquid. According to a post on PCWorld.com, “the technology isn’t intended for prolonged exposure under water, rather as a way to protect products when they’re accidentally dropped in the toilet or the bath, for instance. But the demonstration showed that the devices can, in fact, keep running for hours when submerged, and the company says they can safely be used while lounging in the pool or in the rain.”
The waterproofing process uses a vacuum chamber that sucks all of the air out of the device, and then pumps in a gas that seeps into the device. The gas has a waterproof material that rests on all the inside surfaces, which gives it a very, very thin protective coating. So, instead of this being a waterproof case that goes on the outside of the device, the inside of the device is waterproof.
Check out the video below to see the demonstration!

Just before the WWDC, Walmart announced that they will be offering the iPhone 4 for $147- a $52 difference from Apple’s $199 price tag! Walmart is offering this deal for both the black and white versions of the iPhone 4. Of course, you have to sign up for a 2-year contract with either AT&T or Verizon in order to get this price for an iPhone 4.
This deal is available in “select stores” until June 30, according to Walmart.
In an article I found on the website All Things Digital (www.allthingsd.com) Apple sheds a little light on why there was a delay in releasing the white iPhone 4. Here is a piece from that article:
“It was challenging,” Apple senior vice president Phil Schiller said during a joint interview with CEO Steve Jobs. “It’s not as simple as making something white. There’s a lot more that goes into both the material science of it–how it holds up over time…but also in how it all works with the sensors.”
On Friday, Apple released the iPad 2. Also released on the same day was the Smart Case for the iPad 2. The Smart Case is a cover for the iPad 2 that was developed to work just with the iPad 2. It attaches to the iPad 2 with magnets and protects the screen. But it’s not just a cover. It’s a stand for using the keyboard and FaceTime. When you cover the iPad with the Smart Case, the case puts the iPad to sleep, and when you take the cover off, the iPad wakes up. If you go to Apple’s website, you can see everything the Smart Case can do.
You can order the Smart Case from the Apple Store now. It comes in 10 colors- 5 made of polyurethane colors and 5 made of leather. The polyurethane cases are $39 and the leather cases are $69.
Here’s a video so you can see just how awesome this case really is.
