Spring is the time to plan summer travel. Whether you are taking a staycation or flying across the world, spring is also the time to add protection to your phone. Thanks to Verizon’s Open Enrollment, if you didn’t take advantage of protecting your phone when you got it, you can still sign up for Total Mobile Protection or any of our other protection options now through May 31, 2018. 

More than just peace of mind if an unexpected drop, break or loss happens here or abroad, did you know Total Mobile Protection can also help you save time and money? Here are five ways:

  1. Save money with cracked screen repair. Cracked screens happen, but with Total Mobile Protection, you have access to our coast-to-coast cracked screen repair network. Repairs are cost-effective, at a $29 deductible for select smartphones, subject to parts availability.

  2. Save time with fast, convenient cracked screen repairs. Repair is available for select smartphones, subject to parts availability. Options include scheduling an on-site repair  in more than 360 markets, carry in to one of our more than 325 authorized repair locations, or you can mail in your damaged device and we’ll send it back in a few days. 

  3. Save time with replacement devices, even while traveling internationally. Time is of the essence when something happens to your phone or tablet. If your cracked screen can’t be repaired or your device is lost, stolen or damaged, we’ll send you a replacement as soon as the next day. Only Verizon offers next-day device replacement for claims up until midnight ET, including Saturday delivery. If you’re traveling out of the U.S. and lose your phone, only Verizon will ship a replacement phone internationally. Or, if eligible, in many international destinations you can also get your cracked smartphone screen repaired by a local shop and we’ll reimburse you quickly. Voila!

  4. Get time-saving help with Tech Coach. Tap the Tech Coach app to connect with a live expert in seconds. Get more from your phone or tablet with unlimited access to experts who can help transfer content, explain error messages and manage connected devices.

  5. If you’ve got three or more lines on your account, Total Mobile Protection Multi-Device provides flexible account coverage for $39 per month. You can also add Additional Coverage for up to 7 more lines at $9 per month, per line.

Total Mobile Protection is a smart investment to help save time and money if the unexpected happens during your summer travels or in your everyday life.
