  3. This statistic is dodgy.

    If true it would mean about 2.5 million phones were stolen in the UK every
    year - more than the total number of all burglaries, robberies and thefts
    from the person put together!

    Are they really stolen, or do insurance companies not realise people use the
    policy as a cheap way to upgrade when a newer model comes out. The phone
    gets sold on auction sites for use abroad, or kept in the UK as mobile
    companies refuse to block phones reported stolen.

    Mobile phone insurance is often a money making scam, see the Martin Lewis
    money saving expert site for which policies are a rip-off. Most don't cover
    as you would imagine, so are not worth paying for.

    I'm Okay.
    I only ever make 11 second calls, and always carry 200 spares.
    Rather inconvenient, though.
