Phone Insurance that's social
Traditional insurers exist to make big fat profit margins. They keep the money that they don't pay out on claims. This means whenever they pay a claim, they lose profit. This is why getting your claim approved and paid is so very painful... they want to keep your money.
so-sure has been designed differently. Our whole business is built around putting you, the customer, first. That's why we decline less than 4% of claims - because we believe insurance should have your back when you need it and also reward you for being careful.
We also treat the money you pay as your money, and we believe that people are better together, and that's why we've created insurance that's social and gives money back when there's no claims.Get a Quote

Haven't made a claim as yet but changing my policy over to a new phone following an upgrade just as easy as the initial set up and super friendly customer service!
I made a claim for my iPhone Face ID failing due to some light water damage. So sure have been very prompt to handle my claim and explain the process. They organised collection of the phone from my house and return a replacement phone within a week! I am very happy with the service and will recommend to anyone.
I found so-sure easy to use in arranging my gadget insurance and wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them. Their customer experience ratings were also reassuring in making my decision.
Simple to set up and good price. Excellent system to weed out the fraudsters which push up insurance prices for everyone else. Great app and overall, very happy with the cover.
The process was simple enough - I got my quote through a comparison site, checked out the details and took out my policy! There was an error on the comparison site but so-sure were great and matched the quote details - no questions asked! The validation of my phone screen was really easy too - took about 10 minutes to be verified! Now I can enjoy my new phone without any worries!
Quick, easy and very competitive for such a highly defaqto rated insurer. Very pleased with the process and ease of getting the policy set up through Starling Bank
Really good company, love the incentives they offer for being a loyal customer hence the reason why I decided to do my mobile phone insurance through them. Would recommend
Very easy to choose which tariff suits you. You get discounted excess rates when you take a pic of the phone in working condition. You can also make money of you share there page with your friends. So happy with my cover and better yet it was really cheap too :)

Mobile phone insurance coverage
Smashing your phone screen really is rubbish, whether you drop it on hard ground or it inexplicably cracks in your pocket (it happens). If your mobile phone screen is broken, smashed, or cracked to the point where your phone is unusable then so-sure will replace or repair it as quickly as possible.
Losing your phone can feel like the end of the world and waiting around for a replacement is no fun. With a so-sure phone insurance policy, you’ll be covered for loss and we aim to get a phone back in your hands within 24 hours, so you can get back to taking snaps and messaging friends back.
Nearly 300,000 mobile phones are stolen every year. Thankfully, when bad stuff like this happens you can be sure that we’ve got you covered. so-sure phone insurance covers your phone for theft at home and abroad (up to 90 days coverage).
Water damage is one of the most common phone insurance claims, and although the ‘rice trick’ can work, you’re much safer having an insurance policy to cover you. Fortunately, water damage is included in so-sure coverage. Just don’t go throwing your phone into water on purpose.
This insurance is arranged and administered by so-sure, which is an appointed representative of Shepherd Compello Ltd, a company authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (registered number: 311810). The policies are underwritten by Helvetia (FCA registered number: 454140).
We focus on your needs, not your smartphone
We carefully observed what other mobile phone insurers were doing at the time when we started up, what were the processes involved and how easy or difficult it was for people like you to get comprehensive insurance for their handsets or to make a claim, and we decided we can do a lot better if we would focus on your needs instead of your phone. Of course, the phone is what the insurance would cover, just like it would with any other mobile phone insurance company in the UK, but the focus should be on your peace of mind that you don’t have to change your lifestyle to keep your smartphone covered, that your device would still be covered if you decide to save money and get it from the internet, second-hand, or that if you like to travel, up to 90 days of international traveling would be included.
Focusing on the needs of our clients resulted in a service that was faster, superior, easier and a lot more affordable. This is what makes so-sure’s mobile phone insurance different.
Faster - the phone insurance cover starts as soon as we your contract starts and we aim to achieve a 24-72 hour replace or repair, once claim is approved;
Superior - comprehensive cover against the unexpected – theft, loss and accidental damage covered as a standard, that also applies for cracked screens, water damage, international traveling, phone accessories and even network charges that you haven’t authorised.
Easier - everything from getting your mobile phone insurance, to understanding what’s covered by the insurance and the terms and conditions, and to making a claim if you need to, is designed to be easy and straightforward. No legal jargon or complicated clauses.
Cheaper - you’ll probably be surprised to learn that we give you money back if you’ve been careful with your phone, but our social insurance program does just that. You could get up to 80% of your insurance premiums back at the end of the policy year by joining forces with your most careful friends and family.Get a Quote

I bought a used phone/my friend gave me an older phone can I still insure it?
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 or European Union market prior your purchase (e.g. we don't insure models sold in China).
How much is excess?
Our excess is as low as £50 for accidental damage and £70 for loss and theft.
Is there an age limit on the mobile phone I want to insure?
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.
