T-Mobile Device Insurance Plan Adds ID Protection
T-Mobile today rolled out a new option for those seeking to protect not only their expensive smartphone, but themselves. The new Premium Device Protection Plus monthly insurance plan adds McAfee Security for T-Mobile with ID Protection. Specifically, the ID protection service gives subscribers 24/7 access to lost wallet and ID restoration services with a $1 million insurance policy for potential loses. The revised insurance plan also now includes Tech Personal Help Desk, which T-Mobile says provides "VIP-level" personal support through T-Mobile's online and phone-based support staff. The Tech Personal Help Desk covers diagnostics and some self-service repairs for phone, tablets, hotspots, and even routers, TVs, and game consoles. The monthly insurance program already includes device protection, data protection, and AppleCare for iPhone owners. T-Mobile's new Premium Device Protection Plus monthly insurance plan will be available starting May 7. It costs $15 per month.
