Verizon customers who missed out on signing up for Verizon’s Mobile Protect are getting a second chance for undamaged devices through April 13.
Verizon Mobile Protect works similarly to other device insurance plans like AppleCare, except it is charged through a users’ Verizon bill. Generally, this protection has to be activated within 30 days of buying a new device, but Verizon has enabled a short open-enrollment period.
According to a Verizon News Center post, customers can apply for Verizon Mobile Protect or any other device protection plan with an eligible device, even outside of their 30-day window. The device just has to be fully functioning, free of defects, and not have a cracked screen.
The current plan includes features like loss, theft, damage, post-warranty malfunctions, and a subsidized device replacement fee (up to $249) or screen repair fee ($29). This is set to change on April 27, with a new $99 damage replacement deductible and free unlimited screen repairs.
