T-Mobile includes free AppleCare+ with JUMP! or Premium Device Protection
AppleCare+ is an extended warranty for the Apple iPhone and Apple iPad. And it now appears that T-Mobile is offering free AppleCare+ service for those who upgrade to JUMP! or sign up for the carrier's Premium Device Protection plan. While T-Mobile's website calls it AppleCare service, the features listed by T-Mobile are the same as those included with the premium AppleCare+ service.

JUMP! is priced at $12 a month and allows subscribers to update to a new phone whenever they want, without an annual limit. When you want to upgrade, trade in the current device and T-Mobile will cover half of the remaining balance on the phone. In addition, JUMP! includes Premium Device Protection, AppleCare Services and Lookout Mobile Security Premium. For the same $12 a month, you can strip out JUMP! and get Premium Device Protection, AppleCare Services and Lookout Mobile Security Premium.

Considering that AppleCare+ alone is $129 a year, this is obviously a good deal for T-Mobile customers. The AppleCare+ services that T-Mobile subscribers will be receiving with JUMP! or Premium Device Protection include:

  • 24/7 priority access to AppleCare’s award-winning technical support via chat or phone
  • Low service fees such as $29 for iPhone screen damage
  • $0 for battery service
  • Apple-certified repair or replacement at Apple Stores and Apple Authorized Service Providers
  • Hardware service with genuine Apple parts
  • Software support for iOS, iCloud, and Apple-branded iOS apps
  • Hardware repairs and service backed by Apple

Two claims are allowed in a single 12-month period.

"JUMP! is priced at $12 a month and allows subscribers to update to a new phone whenever they want, without an annual limit." "Two claims are allowed in a single 12-month period." What is an annual limit?

The first statement is regarding being able to get a new phone whenever you want by trading in the one you are leasing at the time (not damaged). The second statement is regarding being able to get two warranty repairs per year. They are two different things. My advice: Phone insurance is a scam, don't get it. Your cost to just have it covered over two years is 12x24=$288, plus a deductible is probably around $200. So over the course of two years, if you had to get a repair your phone, you would be paying close to $500 to get your phone repaired. The longer you have the phone before actually using the insurance, the worse the value is because your phone will be worth less and will probably cost less than your monthly premiums already paid and the deductible. You might as well just pay for a new phone. If you really feel that you must have insurance, then just get a SquareTrade or other warranty. The only disadvantage is that you won't have loss/theft insurance.
