New BlackBerry Care Protection Plan Offers up to 2 Years Damage Protection

If you’ve picked up a new BlackBerry 10 device – Classic or Passport, BlackBerry has launched a new Care Protection plan which offers up to 2 years coverage on your handset. The BlackBerry Care Protection Plan will also be available for the BlackBerry Leap when made available. If you’ve purchased an insurance plan through your mobile carrier it operates more or less the same. Each month you’ll be responsible for small insurance fee and deductible should you make a claim. These days its tough to find a mobile shop who works on Berries so no better way to keep customers happy by offering them a nice care protection plan. Below are a few details.

  • An additional year of coverage for mechanical and electrical breakdown due to device defects that occur after BlackBerry’s standard one year limited warranty expires,
  • Coverage for accidental damage from handling (such as damage resulting from dropping the device, liquid spillage, or in association with screen breakage), and
  • The option of a smartphone replacement to minimize downtime in the event of a claim.

The BlackBerry Care Protection Plan offers an easy and quick claims process. In the event of a claim, a BlackBerry Care Protection Plan customer service representative will personally walk a customer through their claim options; which may include a next-day delivery of a replacement device subject to delivery times and locations, or a device repair by BlackBerry.*

The BlackBerry Care Protection Plan is available to customers in the U.S. and Canada,** at a price of $3.49 USD ($4.25 CAD) per month for a BlackBerry Leap (upon in-market availability), $3.99 USD ($4.75 CAD) per month for a BlackBerry Classic, and $4.49 USD ($5.25 CAD) per month for a BlackBerry Passport. The BlackBerry Care Protection Plan will have an affordable deductible of only $49 for a BlackBerry Leap, $99 for a BlackBerry Classic and $129 for a BlackBerry Passport.
