Dear Crissy

Don’t let mobile mishaps ruin your summer

This post is sponsored by Asurion.

Last summer, during a trip to the zoo, I asked my husband to hold my iPhone for a moment while I was adjusting the straps on Evan’s stroller.

He put the phone in his back pocket, and we continued on to see the elephants.

I had forgotten that I asked him to hold my phone, right up until I saw him sit down on a bench and heard the sickening crunch of glass breaking on the screen of my iPhone.

Yep, the screen was so shattered that the glass had actually turned to DUST. Not. Cool.

It took me 10 days to replace my phone, and in my line of work, I really can’t afford to be without my phone for that length of time. I’ve been thinking a lot lately about insuring my cell phone—I know it’s a step I should take.

    I had no idea something like this existed. My daughter cracked her iPhone screen a few months ago :(

    I’ve never heard of cell phone insurance! I’m a fairly new cell phone owner and have my iPhone for just over a year. I’d be lost without it though and bring it everywhere with me. It’s my lifeline to the outside world.

    I haven’t had a cell phone castastrophe (knock on wood). I shudder to even think about that!!

    I’ve been lucky, no phone catastrophes that I can remember. I do have insurance on my iPhone, just in case.

    Sitting on the iPhone! Sounds like something that would happen to my husband for sure. He would definitely benefit from phone insurance! He’s had his fair share of mishaps!
