Smartphone Insurance – 7 Surprising Reasons Why You Need It
Insurance covering your valuable smartphone, for when the unthinkable happens
Only a few years ago, a phone was a thing that combined wires with magic and let you speak to somebody who was not in the same room. Now it’s your bank, your camera, your diary, your assistant, the weather forecast, a news channel, your local arcade and the place where local gossips hang out. Oh, and a phone.
If your phone gets misplaced, taken from you, or is damaged beyond repair, you stand to lose so much more than just an "object”. For many, their phone is now the centre of their virtual universe, and their data is becoming more and more valuable. Suddenly being without it is unimaginable and the impact it has is severe.
Luckily, Fortress has partnered with leading Insurers to offer comprehensive insurance cover. We cover all different types of feature phone and smartphone.
