    Thought I was insured but I wasn't.

    What's my best option now!?

    Buy a used one and carry on my contract? Could it even be possible to buy a faulty phone and get it repaired under my contract?

    Any advice would be great, thanks.

    Call your network provider and see what deals they can do you on a replacement. They may give you Emergancy insurance or issue you with a remanufactured phone for a cheaper price. I certainly know they did for my friend!

    faulty idea wont work, since all phones have an identity number, so im sure your repairer under contract would recognise this isnt the original phone you were given

    On orange I think but I think lots of networks have offers so approaching them first is probably a good idea!
