Why Get Mobile Phone Insurance?
5 Reasons Why...
While it’s important to treat your mobile phone with care to avoid damage, accidents do happen. Here are 5 reasons you might want to take out mobile phone insurance with tinhat™.
1. The Selfie Mishap
While trying to capture that perfect selfie from an unusual angle or precarious position, the phone slips from the hand and meets its untimely demise. Bonus points if it’s a group selfie and multiple people are implicated in the phone’s downfall.
2. The Food Fiasco
Imagine trying to follow a cooking tutorial on your phone. You’re juggling ingredients, following along, and then—splat! Your phone ends up submerged in a bowl of soup or fried in a wok. Culinary ambitions: 1, Phone: 0.
3. The Pet Predicament
Your curious cat or playful pup decides that your phone looks like a fantastic new toy. After a few chomps or swats, you’re left with a phone that’s seen better days. It’s hard to be mad when they look so pleased with themselves, though.
4. The Lamppost Lament
You’re engrossed in a hilarious group chat or captivated by the latest viral video. You’re walking and laughing, completely unaware of the world around you. Then, WHAM! You walk straight into a lamppost. As you reel back, clutching your forehead, your phone slips from your grasp.
5. The Dance Floor Disaster
You’re tearing it up on the dance floor, lost in the music. Your killer dance moves are too much for your phone to handle, and it flies out of your pocket, skidding across the floor. Your phone may not survive, but at least you’ve got some memorable dance moves.
Life happens, we've got you covered.
