AT&T Bundles Insurance and Support In Protection Pack
AT&T today announced a new option for those looking to insure or otherwise protect their mobile devices. The new AT&T Mobile Protection Pack merges a number of separate services in one offering that costs $9.99 per month. The Protection Pack includes mobile insurance (against loss, theft, accidental damage, liquid damage, or mechanical and electrical failure); live and web-based device and services support; and Mobile Locate, which can be used to track, recover, or secure lost or missing handsets. The services are still available for purchase separately, but the bundled price presents a cost savings to customers. AT&T said Protection Pack is available to "several" of its devices, but didn't name them.
