iPhoneless Round 2: iPhone vs Toilet & Vodafone insurance.
So a week ago today I dropped my 3 week old refurbished iPhone 3GS in the toilet. Within a matter of minutes the screen started to fade, the back light went out and I died a little inside again.
I made an insurance claim on the Friday through Vodafone Coverme Insurance as I had done a month and a half earlier when my iPhone broke when I dropped it walking home from work.
Based on my previous painful experience of waiting almost 4 weeks for the insurance claim to be approved and have a new refurbished handset ordered and then delivered to the store, I was prepared for the worst.
I was pleasantly surprised when this morning I received an email advising just 4 days after dropping my handset off for assessment that the claim was approved and a new handset had been ordered. I only hope the next stage of the claim goes as quickly and before I’ve even paid my last excess a new handset (and associated excess) is in my iPhone deprived hands.
For the time being, I’m sticking with a borrowed K850i which required a software upgrade to partially fix the buggy Vodafone firmware that is installed on operated modified handsets, one thing I’m glad Apple didn’t let them do with the iPhone!
UPDATE (28/6/2011): Only 6 business days after dropping my phone off I get a message saying my replacement is available to collect. Very impressed by the turn around time this time around, much better than my last experience.

Harry and Eggsy just randomly fighting for no reason. Like, They’re in the kitchen and he just launches at Harry with a plate and Harry goes at him with a rollin pin and they end up in a jokey fight of kitchen equipment.
The first time his mum sees she freaks out and yells at them to stop, not realising it was only playful until Eggsy dropps the fork he’s brandishing and smacks Harry’s ass with a grin.
And they keep doing it all the time everywhere and Roxy and Merlin are so sick of it, rolling their eyes and smiling fondly, and everyone else freaks out.
