Do you always seem to be misplacing or breaking your mobile device? If recent studies are any indication you are not alone. In fact, 25 percent of Americans lose or damage their cell phones every year. In Chicago alone, 120,000 cell phones are reported to be lost in taxi cabs. With the full retail price of smartphones north of $600, replacement can be expensive. But the cost could be larger than just the financial loss alone given the personal data connected to and stored on your devices.
As the need for comprehensive protection that covers device support, security and replacement becomes more important, Verizon Wireless is launching its Total Mobile Protection service this week.
The Total Mobile Protection service provides premium tech support through access to Verizon Wireless’ Tech Coaches. This means shorter wait times for personalized tech support for your device, apps, cloud services and device integration with other technology like TVs and printers.
This new offering also provides peace of mind through increased security offerings. You can protect your mobile device from viruses, malware, and other mobile threats with the Verizon Mobile Security app, which is included in Total Mobile Protection. The app also includes mobile device lock, device locate, and content wipe features.
And, if you need to replace your device because it was lost, stolen or you dropped it in the bathtub, replacing a device at full retail price could be expensive. Total Mobile Protection includes insurance, extends the manufacturer’s warranty, and offers next day device replacement.
When it comes to your wireless technology, you can have peace of mind.
The Total Mobile Protection service is available to Verizon Wireless customers for $10 a month.
