Mobile phone insurance comes to Pakistan via Nokia Care & Pak-Kuwait Takaful partnership

Nokia logoMobile phone users in Pakistan rejoice; Pak-Kuwait Takaful launches the first mobile phone insurance plan to users in Pakistan against accidental damage, theft and loss of phone due to armed hold up. Insurance plans are common in 1st world countries and generally unnecessary however in countries such as Pakistan, buying an expensive mobile phone and then keeping it is not easy.

To those unfamiliar with the term Takfaul, it means ‘Insurance’ however the sort approved by Islam.

The policy can be purchased from Nokia Care network / outlets throughout Pakistan from Sept 3, 2013 on wards.

The full press release can be read here.

I can’t wait to get the full details at the outlet and would love to know what you all think.
