Your mobile phone is an expensive item that travels with you all day, every day, so it makes sense to take steps to protect it.

Here are our top 3 tips for taking care of your precious asset:

  • Get a phone cover. We've all seen people struggling to use a phone with a smashed screen. A phone cover is a relatively cheap way to avoid costly clumsiness.
  • Enable password protection. If your phone is lost or stolen, a password makes it much harder for someone to access your email, online banking and other sensitive information.
  • Insurance for your phone. Mobile phone theft is on the rise, and your home insurance policy may not include your mobile phone - so for cover against a lost, stolen, or damaged phone and a low premium of $9.95 we can offer Virgin mobile insurance*.

With our mobile phone insurance policy you are covered anywhere in the world. If it can't be fixed, it will be replaced with a brand new one. You'll even get up to $1250 worth of unauthorised calls if a not so nice person steals your phone in Australia, and up to $500 to rent a temporary replacement if you’re travelling overseas and your phone is stolen*.
