A farmer who lose his iPhone inside a cow after using it as flashlight during the birth of a calf has topped a list of weirdest mobile insurance claims.

A woman who baked her Nokia 6303i into her daughter’s Victoria Sponge cake and a man who climbed up a tree to film a Blur gig also featuring in the poll, according to MobileInsurance.co.uk.

Another person filed a claim after losing their phone over the side of a cruise ship while trying to re-enact the famous ‘I’m king of the world’ line from the film, Titanic.

While a woman in her 30s claimed a seagull swooped down and took her Samsung Galaxy from her hand while she was walking her dog on a beach.

Although, not all the claims were humorous, with one woman admitting that she’d thrown her HTC Desire X at her boyfriend after she found out he had been cheating on her.

Mobile phone insurance claims have soared in recent years as the popularity of smartphones has also rocketed.

Last month the Financial Ombudsman Service (FOS) said that the number of claims had gone up by 63 per cent compared to last year. However, it’s rarely revealed what types of claims have been made by customers.

While the credibility of some of the claims was questioned a spokesman from the mobile phone insurance comparison website said that all the stories were fully investigated.
