Don't bother getting "total protection".

If your phone gets damaged you will pay for a replacement. Verizon charge for a replacement is not competitive with what you would pay elsewhere. Phones come and go and depreciate at a faster rate than cars do.  In my case iVerizon quoted 2X the going cost of the same phone.  I cancelled "total protection" after finding this out. I estimate I paid VZ over $200.00 over time for the useless feature.

You're paying for Asurion, not Verizon. Verizon has zero to do with how the insurance process works. If someone stole your car, insurance doesn't give you a free one. 

Asurion's deductables have always been around $99 to $199 for majority of smart phone replacements.
