Starting tomorrow, fixing a cracked screen is only $29 via Verizon's Total Mobile Protection plan
Drop your phone and shatter the screen? As our high school English Literature professor might have said, "That's sad. That's too bad, but it is not a tragedy. A tragedy is a Greek play." Actually, thanks to a sizeable 41% price cut, Verizon is now charging only $29 to repair a screen at 296 locations in the country. Or, you can have the repair done in your home or office in more than 150 U.S. cities. Certainly no tragedy, it is actually no more than a hiccup.

To take advantage of that low price for a screen repair, you must be a member of Verizon's Total Mobile Protection plan. Starting tomorrow and running through November 19th, Verizon has open enrollment for Total Mobile Protection so that you can protect your device from damage, loss and theft. In addition, the plan also offers:

  • Fast next day replacement: When you file a claim for a replacement phone by midnight ET, you can receive the phone the very next day.
  • Expert technical support: Tech Coach makes allows for customers to receive great support and advice when you need help with your phone and anything it connects to.
  • More claims: We know that accidents can happen, so that is why we offer up to three claims a year for your device.

For more information on Total Mobile Protection, visit your local Verizon store or click on this link.

From October 19th through November 17th, any handset purchased in the last 24-months can sign up for the Total Mobile Protection plan at the cost of $11 a month. That works out to $121 over a year. If your phone starts acting funky after the original warranty has expired, you might consider this the best $121 you've ever spent.

Last I checked it was $11/month and there was an option to cover all phones on a family plan for $33/month.

Why would that be?

Hmmm, trying to figure out the logic behind that one. Maybe because all of the tempered glass screen protectors for curved screens are rubbish. People that buy them find they fall off or break so they ditch them. Everyone else with a curved screen knows they're bad and take their chances with just a case. The result is that more screens get broken so there is a rise in repair shops to meet the demand.

The $29 is just for certain devices like Iphones and Samsung Galaxy s7. All others may require a refurbished device @ $199.00

Does not include the latest Galaxy s8 or s8+. They can't repair their curved screens. Was stuck paying the $199 deductible. :(

Or you could just buy any of the last 3 of Motorolas flagships with Shatter Shield. Even a 50 foot drop won't break the screen. Verizon tried to sell me the $11 protection plan when I got my Moto Z2 Force and I just looked at him and was like, "Really...!?"

Hang on... So you buy this thing called TOTAL protection, then have to pay more to get use it? And as aja626 says, the $29 is for hardly any phone. S7 edge has 199 deductible. So one cracked screen would be over 300 dollars. You have to sign up within 30 days of buying the phone, or during special offers - like now until November 17th.
