    Ok.. to make a long story short, I dropped my sidekick in a toilet. How much would it be to get a new Sidekick II if I have insurance?

    Call up the company that you are insured with and ask them.


    Or go here to view info:

    Scroll down to How Much Does This Cost?
    and check out the payment that you are making and how much the deductible (aka replacement cost), will be.

    Example if you are paying $5.99 a month for the insurance, then to replace your phone, will cost you $110 out of your pocket to get a replacement SideKick II. SO looks like the most your would every be out, as long as you are covered, would be $110.

    So whatever policy that you have, hopefully it covers water damage.

    BLK is right, it will cost 110 IF you pay the 5.99 insurance per month BUT without insurance, it can run u up to 300 dollars. =(

    Er... what is it that you are doing in there for so long that you can use that there side kick?

    Let's see... Showering? Nah too wet and the soap makes your hands all slippery.

    Cleaning the bathroom? Nah more water and soap.

    Blowing nose? Hummm nope gotta use two hands with that wad of toilet paper.

    Washing hands? Oh right more soap and water....

    #1? Hummm guys stand, and girls don't.. Nah cause that does not take long and then it hand washing again..

    What is causing these marathon sessions in the bathroom?

    OOOOHHHH! never mind... hehehe

    I'm sorry for the confusion. I actrually DO NOT have insurance on my Sidekick II. I have a pre-paid. So will it still be 110 to get it fixed?

    Ah well I'm not sure that they will even try to fix water damage. Time to call customer service. I have a hunch, that if they do try to fix it, it will might be less costly to get a refurbished unit or just bite the bullet and buy a new one.

    I wonder can you even insure a prepaid sidekick?

    One thing you might want to check, and that's your home owners insurance or your renters insurance to see if either of those might cover it.

    oh man, no insurance? ahh, scarey situation rite there. im pretty sure its going to cost you a bit more than 110. im asssuming and again ASSUMING, it will be around the total cost of the phone which is 299.00, to replace it. i tell everyone, ALWAYS get insurance, you may not think u need it but trust me, in the long run its the best way to go!!!!
