Verizon to Charge More for Insurance, But Drop Screen Repair Cost
Verizon Wireless plans to adjust the cost structure of its Total Mobile Protection device insurance program. Subscribers will see their monthly costs go up, but will see savings on select repairs. Beginning January 25, new customers will be charged $13 per month for Total Mobile Protection, which includes Tech Coach. Existing customers won't see the price increase until March 6, when it jumps from $11 to $13. Some of the benefits include access to in-home repairs and more than 300 authorized repair centers around the country. Customers can also ship their phone to Verizon for repair if needed. Once the new monthly pricing goes into effect, the cost to replace a cracked screen will drop to $29.
