Luckily, I was insistent that we buy the insurance. I have never purchased insurance on a product before but I figured that we would need it and since the phones are $500 each, I figured we would chance it. The insurance was $140 a phone and the kids paid it themselves. I gambled and won on this one. It cost $125 to replace each phone and we get to keep the broken phones. I'm pretty sure that we can sell them even broken to recoup some of the money.
So to reiterate, if you break your cell phone, you get a new one and it is the upgraded model. Not fair. I don't think that they will learn.
This is what the completed college list pile looks like minus his clothes. Soon people, very soon!
