Cover your Galaxy J3 for theft, loss and accidental damage

Going a day, week or month without your smartphone after theft or loss can be a frustrating experience, especially if you rely on your phone for sending emails, working and keeping in touch with friends and family. We want to change that.

Like other popular smartphones, the Galaxy J3 is a common target for thieves. Designed to provide all of the coverage you need, our smartphone insurance makes it easy to keep your phone insured against theft and loss. It may not be the most expensive smartphone, but this Samsung handset is still a cool phone with good specs.

When you insure with so-sure you’ll also receive coverage for accidental damage, meaning there’s no need to worry if you accidentally drop your phone, as well as coverage for unauthorized network charges that can occur after your phone goes missing.

How much is excess?

Our excess is as low as £50 for accidental damage and £70 for loss and theft when you validate your phone with our anti-fraud technology.

If you don’t validate your phone with pic-sure the excess is £150.

Can I insure a mobile phone I bought from eBay or another auction site?

Yes, you can take out insurance on a second hand phone. The phone bought needs to have originally been sold into the UK market prior your purchase (e.g. we don’t insure models sold in China, for example).

I bought a used phone/my friend gave me an older phone can I still insure it?

Yes, we are able to insure second-hand phones provided they are in full working condition, without any damage, and less than 3 years old.

Is there an age limit on the mobile phone I want to insure?

The phone you want to insure must be less than 3 years old from when your policy begins.

If I pay annually do I get a discount?

Our Reward Pot allow us to give you the best possible pricing, so sorry we do not provide annual discounts.

What is an IMEI number and how do I find out the IMEI of my mobile phone?

The IMEI (International Mobile Equipment Identification) number of your mobile phone is a unique identification code that is specific to your mobile phone. If you change your mobile phone, it is important that you call us so we can update your policy with the correct details.

For iOS (Apple) users:

Unfortunately, as we need your serial number on iOS you can’t just dial a number (although dialing the same number as above will reveal your IMEI number).

As such you can find both numbers by going to Settings > General > About.

If you’re using our app (or if requested by support), you can take a screenshot by pressing the Sleep/Wake and Home buttons at the same time until you see the screen flash quickly.

For Android users:

The easiest way to find your phone’s IMEI number if you’re on an Android device is to simply dial *#06#

If you’re still having trouble, then you should be able to find it in Settings > About phone > Status > IMEI information.

Your serial number will be on the Status screen.

If requested by support, you can take a screenshot on most Android phones by holding the volume down and the power buttons for 1-2 seconds. The screen should flash and the photo can be found in your photos app.
