Many people will know the frustration and disappointment that comes from losing a cell phone, having it stolen or damaging it. Many people are now very reliant on their cell phones, which is why damage, loss or theft can create such a problem. The cost of repairs or replacement is another major issue, particularly with the higher value smart phones around today.
For those who are T-Mobile® Monthly4G™ customers with T-Mobile USA, a new protection scheme has been launched by the provider for the protection of 4G networks. The program is called Monthly4G Handset Protection (MHP) and has been launched in conjunction with Assurant Solutions.
After the expiry of the manufacturer's guarantee, the new protective scheme will offer coverage for accidental damage, water damage, loss, theft, and mechanical or electrical malfunction.
Mike Katz, vice president of marketing and head of prepaid, T-Mobile USA, said: “There has been increased consumer demand for no-annual contract wireless plans and our Monthly4G plans are being adopted in record numbers -– with our prepaid business doubling over the past year. We want to provide these customers with security and protection options like we do our postpaid customers and are happy to launch MHP with Assurant Solutions. They have tremendous expertise in developing mobile protection solutions for global carriers, and we are confident that this program will add significant value to the T-Mobile customer experience.”
