At least $649 (minus your insurance settlement), unless AT&T takes pity on you.

what exact insurance are you paying for?

If it is asurion through att you will only pay the published deductable of 199.00. Sorry but none of the top 3 carriers takes pity on you and reduces the cost of a replacement phone

I keep FIND MY PHONE turned on in settings on all my devices and if I can get to a computer will send out the wipe command before they get a new sim in it.

Re: help my iphone 5 was stolen

without the insurance, the replacement cost is around $600 - $800 (depending on model) unless you are upgrade eligible.

the 64GB new / upgrade price is 399.00 to get one without upgrade ability is 899.00

to cancel your plan you will only what ever your etf is (325.00 - 10.00 * number of billing cycles completed) + the final bill that is not pro-rated, you will lose your number and I believe ther is a 60 - 90 day cooling off period before you can start a new account.

 

The deduction for the phone is 199.00 from the insurance company,lot less they you would have to pay to do what you want ot.

You deduct nothing, if you are paying for a asurion policy you need to go to their website and file a claim, read and follow the insructions exactly as stated, the deductable for a smartphone is 199.00 - this means that is what your out of pocket cost is.

If you have some other form of insurance then you need to check their requirements

AT&T most certainly may adjust the price of a replacement phone.  It's not common but I know of a specific case when it did.

Re: help my iphone 5 was stolen

Just a thought, but isn't there some documentation somewhere that explains exactly what the $10 a month insurance you bought will pay to replace a lost or stolen phone? Shouldn't that be reviewed instead of looking through conflicting answers on an Internet forum? You'll probably need the documentation to know how to file a claim anyway.
