At&T I surance on an Apple bought device


At&T I surance on an Apple bought device

If I buy an unlocked iPhone 8 plus from the new Apple Update Program, am I able to turn back to AT&T and purchase their mobile insurance? A customer service representative told me yesterday that I could buy online it’s now telling me that my device is not eligible. I want insurance that covers theft/lost not just damage.

You cannot Buy insurance through ATT if you didn’t buy the phone through ATT.  

When you buy through Apple, Apple care Plus is included.  That covers you for damage or device failure.  The only thing not covered is loss of device (theft, loss).  

Unless you are routinely losing phones or leave it where it can be stolen, insurance is a lousy deal.
