Tesco offering free insurance with Samsung Galaxy S3

Tesco Phone Shop (not to be confused with Tesco Mobile) is offering a free insurance on all Pay Monthly phones including the Galaxy S3 which happens to be the most expensive phone covered by the insurance; not surprising, the offer doesn't include the expensive-and-prone-to-damage-and-loss Apple iPhone handsets.

The insurance covers loss, theft, accidental, malicious as well as water and liquid damage with up to two claims being made in any 12-month period even if the phone has been used by a family member.

Tesco promises to replace the phone with the same make and model. There's even a Phone recovery service that locks your missing phone, sounds a siren on it, blocks it if someone else puts a SIM in it and helps you locate your missing phone.

If you buy it on T-Mobile for £26 per month (with a £50 initial fee), you get 300 minutes, unlimited texts and 750MB data (or 600 minutes and 250MB data). Note that T-Mobile will not charge you if you go beyond your data allowance and download email or do web browsing. More about the deal on Tesco's website.
