Panic has set in and I previously wrote about what to do in that moment. Review here
However the next consideration is how do you pay for a new phone?
There are a few options you may not have thought of.
1. If you pay monthly insurance through your Carrier they should just give you a new phone.
2. Call your home insurance company. Yep, you heard me right. We have used it twice to replace stolen devices!
3. This one is always forgotten about. If you paid for your phone using a CREDIT CARD or if you pay monthly using your CREDIT card, they may cover you for stolen devices. Worth a try, right?
What have you done when you have to go get a new phone?
