Verizon’s open enrollment period for their mobile protection plans kicks off today and ends March 26. For those not familiar, this is the chance each year to enroll your phone in a protection plan should you have passed on the option at the time of purchase, but now want some coverage.
Currently, Verizon offers five different types of coverage, including Extended Warranty, Wireless Phone Protection, Total Equipment Coverage, and the big guy, Total Mobile Protection. They also offer a “Tech Coach” plan, should you need a friend in the business to talk to about phones on the regular.
I don’t want to dive into each (you can found out more here), but did want to point out a new feature to Verizon’s Total Mobile Protection. Verizon tells us that with Total Mobile Protection, you can now receive same-day repairs for cracked screens either in-store or thanks to a technician stopping by your house. There are apparently 220+ repair locations around the country with more on the way.
Here are the phones currently available for same-day repairs:
- Apple iPhone SE, 5c, 5s, 6, 6 Plus, 6s, and 6s Plus
- Samsung Galaxy S5, S6, and S7
- Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and 5
- Motorola DROID Turbo and DROID Maxx
Additionally, the Total Mobile Protection plan gives you cracked screen repair for a $79 deductible and up to 3 claims per year.
For pricing of each plan, you have the following:
- Total Mobile Protection: $11.00/mo
- Total Equipment Coverage: $9.00/mo
- Wireless Phone Protection: $7.15/mo
- Extended Warranty: $3.00/mo
- Tech Coach: $7.00/mo (lolz!)
