Verizon customers, there are some changes coming to your carrier's Total Mobile Protection insurance program that you should be aware of.
Verizon today announced that on January 25th, the price of Total Mobile Protection will increase from $11 per month to $13 per month. This pricing will take effect for existing customers on March 6th, so there's no way to avoid the price hike.
Also coming to Total Mobile Protection is expanded availability of its cracked screen repair, with a repair technician available to come fix your display in more than 170 U.S. cities. If you're not in one of those cities, you can take your device to one of 300 authorized repair locations across the U.S.
Customers unable to have a repair tech come to them or go to an authorized repair location can to mail your phone from anywhere in the U.S. to Verizon and the carrier will return it in a few days.
If you're traveling internationally, you can get your cracked screen repair performance and then be reimbursed for the work.
Cracked screen repairs have a $29 deductible.
One final detail change coming to Verizon's Total Mobile Protection program is a lower cost for a replacement device if your phone is broken or lost. Customers enrolled in Total Mobile Protection will pay $89 for a replacement device. That price applies to more than 150 models.
