Here is a deal by a company called Cellhelmet, a new protective iPhone case from a company called Cellpig. Originally started as a Kickstarter project, the cases recently went into production and are now available for retail sale, so if your phone breaks in the case (excluding water damage), then the company promises to replace it for a year for a $50 handling fee, with no monthly fee for the coverage. Phones are repaired or replaced within three days of receipt and are overnighted back to your address. cellhelmet includes accidental damage coverage for any iPhone 4/4S, regardless if it’s new, used, unlocked or ailbroken. Also, never wait to file a claim. If your device breaks on day one of ownership go ahead and file a claim. All iPhone 4/4S repairs will be completed withOEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer)Apple parts.
The case is made of dense polyurethane rubber, and has angled edges for drop-shock displacement around the device. It be purchased and used on any iPhone 4 or 4S, even jailbroken iPhones and ones you’ve been using for a few years now.
Apple offers AppleCare+ for new iPhones for $99 and will replace your broken phone twice due to mishandling under the program for $49 — making it still probably a better bet for new phone owners. The win with Cellhelmet is going to be for people who are still using a phone where Apple Care has run out, people who didn’t sign up for coverage when they bought their Phones (most require you sign up immediately or within 30 days), and those who have jailbroken their iPhones which makes them ineligible for Apple protection.
Good Ideas helpful for the consumers but unfortunately, there will always be people out there that take advantage of the system and commit fraud. What do you think ?
