Verizon raising cost of Total Mobile Protection starting on January 25th
The cost of insuring your Verizon handset is going up. Starting January 25th, new Total Mobile Protection subscribers will be paying $13 a month for service. On March 6th, existing members of the plan will see their monthly cost rise $2 a month or 18% to $13 monthly. Total Mobile Protection will now cover nationwide cracked screen repairs. It is nice to know that you have that feature as your expensive new handset is hurtling toward the asphalt in what seems like super slow motion.
With the revisions being made to Total Mobile Protection, the new nationwide cracked screen repair offers these features:
- A repair technician can come to you in more than 170 U.S. cities.
- You can take it to one of 300 convenient authorized repair locations in the U.S.
- You can mail us your phone from anywhere in the U.S. and we’ll repair and return it in a few days.
- When traveling internationally, get cracked screen repairs performed and be reimbursed. Cracked screen repairs have a low $29 deductible.
This means that even if you are traveling away from home and crack the screen on your handset, you could have it repaired quickly, shelling out no more than the $29 deductible. For lost, stolen or damaged devices, the deductible is $19 for basic phones and $19-$199 for smartphones. Depending on the device, the maximum claim is $400 or $2,000 and is limited to 3 claims over 12 months for Total Mobile Protection Single Device, or 9 claims over 12 months for Total Mobile Protection Multi-Device.
