Protect your bubble gets my vote
Gadget Insurance | Cheap Gadget Insurance From Just £1.49 per month I have the same cover on my phone. Excess is is £50, and cost is £2.49 a month (That is theft, damage, loss etc). Claimed once, took 3 days to get a replacement.

Looking at that site, insuring the iPhone costs £5.99 a month plus an extra quid if you want loss cover. I've seen worse I suppose, insurance cover from the phone operators was a lot more.

Mine is covered free with my LloydsTSB account

So is mine, although when I sent off my SE C905 to be repaired it came back locked to Orange and I had to pay again to get it unlocked which was a pain.

I had the opposite, when my O2-locked Dell Streak was replaced I got an unlocked one in return Insured through my joint Barclays account with Mrs AT - it turns out that if you get the insurance on a joint account you can insure both of your phones for no extra cost!

I am just in the process of claiming for my Desire. I had used it to get to a school using Navigation, in the process of putting it back in it's case I dropped it. The screen is smashed and has small dents in the case. I have to pay £30 excess, Not bad for a 'free' insurance through the bank. The screen is over £100 before fitting.
