Verizon has just taken mobile protection to a whole new level! They are now offering same day glass repair to their mobile protection customers in selected areas of the United States. This comes at a time when wireless carriers across the United States are finding new ways to create revenue, while preventing each other from stealing their subscribers. Verizon announced the addition of the same day repair service to their Total Mobile Protection program with the comment, “Americans click, tap and swipe their phones 2,600 times a day … and drop them once a week because ‘life happens.’ 30% of U.S. smartphone owners are currently using a cracked or spider-webbed screen.”- Verizon Program Announcement
According to Verizon’s program, customers enrolled in the program who break the screen or crack the screen can get it repaired within the same day for free at one of their walk-in locations. They will also send a Verizon technician to your workplace or home to make the repair. If the screen is not able to be fixed, or if the phone is stolen, lost, or damaged, then Verizon says they will send a certified ‘like-new’ or new replacement phone the following day, in the majority of cases. In January, Verizon did away with their 2 year service contracts. Instead, EIP became their thing where everyone is involved with an ‘equipment installment plan.’
The price of Verizon’s mobile protection plan will not increase above the current $11 a month per smartphone. However, the drawback to their services is that it isn’t available in all cities. In fact, Verizon is only offering this new feature to approximately 60% of their customers, leaving out huge parts of their customer base across the country. People who will not be eligible to receive service includes Kansas City, Boston, New York City, and San Francisco. They will not be servicing the iPhone 7 either, as it does not appear on the list of same day screen repairs eligible phones.
