Good news for iPhone owners everywhere. Anyone who has an iPhone fears dropping the handset. All it takes is a drop and the device's glass face can shatter, making it difficult to use.
Before, AT&T didn't help you out with the iPhone. If you dropped it and busted up the screen (or backside, for you iPhone 4 owners) tough luck. Now it looks like AT&T is finally changing that policy.
*Please Note: AT&T Mobile Insurance Update: Effective July 17, 2011, the Apple iPhone (all models) will be eligible for coverage with the AT&T Mobile Insurance program (formerly Wireless Phone Insurance). Enrollment restrictions apply. Customers can only enroll within 30 days of a new activation or upgrade, prior activations or upgrades outside of 30 days are not eligible.
Unfortunately, many of us won't be able to add on the insurance plan. You will have to wait until you upgrade. Nice to keep in mind for when you pick up the iPhone 5. It's also $5 a month and can cost about $50/$150 per approved item. This means that replacing that ensured iPhone may end up running you quite a bit anyway. Oh well, still beats regular price.
