Re: Insurance

Unfortunately I don't think it can be sped up. The insurance company should definitely be working faster (esp. as its a lost phone and so nothing needs to be assessed for damage etc.). Possibly they are having supply issues sourcing a replacement. The process should take less than 30 days. You might like to start escalating the complaint though:
