I was all set to get the iPad 2, but then I got a 27" iMac instead.

I am happy with my choice

The 3 may well be a tempter though...

27 inch iMac is very tempting. My current iMac is five years old now.

FWIW I am not sure I need a new iMac.

Can anybody recommend insurance for the iphone 4s?

Just bought it on an 18 month contract with o2

Considering getting Barclaycard Insurance for 6.99 per month

Thanks

Oh and to add more pointless context to my mobile phone life....

Been on o2 simplicity since April 2008

Paying 21 per month for;

600mins
Unlimited text
Free o2 to o2 calls
Could cancel anytime after 30 days (rolling contract)
Been using a crappy Nokia for years but now need emails on the go

Now paying
41 per month for 18 months for

500 minutes
Unlimited texts
Unlimited o2 to o2
1gb internet

Plus got to pay 29 upfront for a 16gb Iphone 4s


Advice as to whether people think that is worth it??

Over last 3 years I have averaged 300 mins per month (main number I call is an o2 number)

Cheers

If you can afford to replace said phone when it is lost, stolen or breaks then don't get the insurance.

Insuring things you can afford to replace is a mug's game.

If the phone was dropped down the toilet after 1 month, I would have to shell out 499.99 for a new one from Apple.

If I was to drop it down the toilet after 1 month and had insurance, I would have paid 6.99 plus a 50 excess.

Insurance makes sense with iphones for me, though I agree with the sentiment about over-insuring.

How many times have you dropped a phone down the toilet?

I have had the same phone for the last 4 years

The only reason I have taken out a contact is that the speaker blew

what is 6.99*12*4?

Phone insurance is a massive con, even with the increased price of handsets in recent years.

Why didnt you just keep the simplicity going and buy the phone outright? Cheaper in the long run.

21 simplicity plus 1gb of internet would have cost me 31 per month

31 x 18 = 558 plus 499 from Apple for the phone = 1057
(appreciate eBay would be say 100 cheaper? If you buy off eBay it is harder to get insurance/less comeback if phone defaults)

41 x 18 = 738 plus 29 = 767, and it is easier to get it insured

So taking the contract makes it 290/190 (eBay adjustment) cheaper?

I still have 14 days to cancel after I receive hence me asking for advice here.
Judging by the backlog, not gonna get it for 7 days or so anyway!

Seeing as I am now on the smartphone bandwagon I expect to get a new handset in 18 months and will only be taking the Barclaycard policy out for 12 months.

In 12 months time phone insurance premiums will hopefully reduced

Owning your phone outright and being on o2 network with giff gaff is the way to go.

Is anyone else having trouble with locations?
Keeps changing my time to 4 hours ahead and when I go onto maps it says I'm Sudan !
When I check the time and date it says set automatically "Time Zone Khartoum"
