Phone insurance with Barclays, anyone else have it?

I took out insurance with my bank Barclays the day I got the iPhone 4g a week after it's release day. Today I dropped my iPhone down the toilet by mistake & it's not workin at all, won't even switch on. I rang Barclays and have put in a claim and they r sending me claim forms to fill out. Checking over my insurance policy with them it states that I'm covered for 'accidental water damage''. Reading further on it says that if my claim is successful I will either have 'the phone fixed, or a new one, or the amount the phone is worth in cash, OR A PHONE WHICH IS SIMILAR'!!!

Has anybody made a claim with Barclays before as I have a funny feeling I might be stitched up one way or the other with them.

My son has Barclays insurance on his iPhone, he fell over and smashed the screen, made a claim and they sent hi a cheque for the PAYG replacement cost from Apple less the excess.

The whole process was quick and painless.

They generally offer you money rather than a replacement.

I pay £16 a month for my Barclays Additions account.

For that I get Travel insurance, Phone insurance (for me & my partner), full RAC cover for the car, plus a few other bits & pieces.

I'm sure Natwest would do a similar account.

Just to let u all know that my new iPhone 4g 16gb turned up yesterday. The whole process took 2 weeks from when I first made the call to claim to receiving the phone. Cheers
