Set to launch on July 1st, T-Mobile will introduce Monthly4G Handset Protection plans through Assurant solutions available to customers within 14 days of activation on any T-Mobile branded device. T-Mobile’s Monthly Handset Protection plan is available for $7.00 a month and provides coverage for “equipment loss, theft, accidental damage and device malfunctions (out of warranty only).” Extended warranty coverage begins immediately following the one-year manufacturers warranty period and customers can switch eligible phones at any time. Monthly Handset Protection follows your phone number and not the device itself, so the purchase of a new device from T-Mobile automatically allows for the transfer of coverage.
Along with the device, Monthly Handset Protection covers the SIM card, battery and Wall Charger along with a memory card if required.
For the most part, Handset Protection is a pretty decent opportunity to protect against having to buy a whole new device if yours is lost or stolen.
Monthly4G Handset Protection (MHP) (Hide)
The bundled product, providing Insurance and Extended Warranty coverage (similar to the PHP bundle), is available for $7.00 per month. Note: Cannot be added to SIM only activations, which are activations for a SIM card to be used in the customer’s exsisting device not purchased through T-Mobile. MHP is added to Monthly4G plans just like any other Monthly4G feature: Covers equipment loss, theft, accidental damage and device malfunctions (out-of-warranty only) and is provided through Assurant Solutions . Provides Extended Warranty coverage beyond the one-year Manufacturer’s Warranty. Does not cover Manufacturer Warranty Exchanges within the first year. Allows customers to switch eligible phones at any time; the MHP coverage follows the customer’s mobile phone number rather than the device.
