About this group
When, on September 14th 2012, Apple ‘pre-released’ the iPhone 5 (meaning the company would accept advanced orders for the product), 2 million units had been sold within 24 hours; the iPhone 5 sold out twenty times faster than either the iPhone 4 or 4S models.
The tech critics were also quick off the mark, with most giving the iPhone 5 a very warm reception. Whilst some suggested that there was little ‘revolutionary’ about the latest model, others pointed out that revolution was not the intention. By simply producing a smartphone that was lighter, thinner, higher in performance and more beautifully designed than any that had come before, Apple had once again raised the bar.
If you’ve taken the decision to an invest in an iPhone 5, it’s a good next decision to protect that investment. Having the right insurance against loss, theft or damage will help you spend less time worrying, and more time enjoying all that this smartphone has to offer.
By joining this group, you will be coming together with other iPhone 5 owners to get a better deal on gadget insurance.
Community questions and answers
Hi folks. Looking to purchase insurance for my daughter's iPhone 5c. She has just gone off to high school and I insist that she takes her phone with her. However, this means obviously that there's a chance of theft, damage etc. Can we insure phones for our kids through this company? I know some insurers have an age limit of 16 years.
Hi Kerry - thanks for the question and I'm pleased to say that the good news is that we can help. I've discussed this with the insurer we've chosen for the group (i-Digital). Their policy can be bought by an adult, for a phone they own which is given to an immediate member of their family for regular use. There are no restrictions on the age of that family member so this could indeed be your daughter using an iPhone you've bought for her. It's worth a read of the policy doc to make sure you're happy with the cover as there are important features to be aware of (one example being that the phone must be under 24 months old when the cover starts). We're aiming to make that simpler over time as the group grows but are not there yet! On the plus side, they do a good multi-gadget discount so it can be cost-effective for several items together. If you do click through and buy from i-Digital, then remember to enter the BBM22 discount code in the box on their quote page (near the bottom). Let me know if we can help more! David
