The basics of Orange mobile phone insurance

The three headlines as to what is covered by Orange mobile phone insurance are: Loss, Theft and Damaged.

Orange mobile phone insurance further details

The following explains in a little more detail how your Orange mobile phone insurance policy works. However, do take the time to have this fully explained to you by Orange when arranging your Orange Care cover. First of all, and in line with other major mobile phone insurance providers, Orange will aim to get a replacement phone despatched to you with 24 hours of you reporting one lost or stolen, so that it arrives with you within 48 hours of you contacting them.

If you are making a claim based on your phone having been stolen or maliciously damaged you must have reported it to the police before contacting Orange, as without the details as reported to the police, and the crime number you are given, they will not be able to process your claim. If your phone has been damaged, by any means, Orange will still send a replacement one out to you but you will have to return the original/damaged one to them via the courier delivering your replacement. Ordinarily you have to report any loss, theft or damage to your phone within 48 hours.

However, if you are abroad at the time that the problem occurs, you can have up to 30 days to report it. That information is important as Orange will only deliver replacement phones to a UK address, so a problem occurring abroad is best left being reported to them until you are back in the UK. If you will be abroad for more than 30 days,report the problem to Orange as previoiusly described and then get someone to forward the replacement phone to you from the UK address the replacement is sent to. Finally here, Orange mobile phone insurance will also pay for a new SIM card and phone number and the costs of reconnecting you to the correct service plan.

Orange Care is also an extended warranty

Another feature making Orange Care an attractive option for Orange mobile phone insurance is that it also acts as an extended warranty for up to three years on your handset. So, when the short manufacturers guarantee has expired you're covered for at least another two years. This cover is for any electrical or mechanical breakdown in the handset, excluding a removable battery failure if the battery is older than 6 months. Another advantage of this extended warranty is that, in the event of having to claim for a damaged handset within 6 months of the Orange mobile phone insurance contract commencing you will not be charged the relevant excess.
