    You should have bought the insurance. You can get the 200 price if you 're ok to change your number.

    I thought there was no way to cover lost or stolen iPhones?

    There is no insurance for the iPhone unless you are referring to the Apple Care Protection Plan which only covers an extra year in addition to the 1 yearwarranty that automatically comes with an iPhone once you purchase it, but this does not cover stolen/lost iPhones.

    and to OP : you can get the $200 price but you need to start a whole new plan over, so expect to pay all those extra fees that come with starting a new phoneline

    no cover for stolen/ lost iphones and starting a new plan is pointless with the charges youll incurr anyway so your just going to have to swallow that $400 fora new one

    im not sure where i lost it .. i just came back from a business trip.. might have fell out of my briefcase at some point..

    i know its my fault .. but it just sucks to have to pay 400 to get a new one..

    if i open a new line and get it at the $200 price.. what happens to my old line/contract?

    let apple know you lost it, that way they can void the serial number so the person who has it can't use it as a phone or download stuff. i had a friendthat bought an iphone from someone and then later he found out that he couldnt use it because his iphone was reported stolen
