    I am not seeing the benefit to this.. “after the warranty expires”.. so basically, if you have a phone with a 1 year warranty, you lose that phone at 6 months, they do nothing because it is not after the “manufacturer warranty” period.. and what point is there to getting a device protection plan, when you first get your phone, if it will not kick in for a full year or so?? Not impressed..

      I’m assuming they just worded it bad and it’s like any other insurance. For example if you break your screen by dropping the phone it will be covered from the second you buy the insurance including during the manufacture warranty period as the manufacture warranty will never cover accidents. Let’s say the charging port goes bad after 6 months the manufacturer would have to fix that or any other problem that happens and is covered by the manufacture warranty.

      These plans are good for those that break their screen with every phone they own and refuse to use a good case but if that’s not you it’s probably not worth the money.

        Not sure.. I know I have had warranty plans in the past that did not start until after the manufacturer warranty ended.. But they usually specify that from the time.. Get a 5 year extended warranty for $50, but it does not start until after the manufacturer warranty ends.. Things like generators, lawnmowers, etc is what I have seen them on.. But here, they specify it with every plan..
