Total Mobile Protection Multi-Device

  1. What are the benefits of Total Mobile Protection Multi-Device instead of purchasing Total Mobile Protection for each individual line?

    Enrolling in coverage for your account may be better than buying coverage for individual lines because:

    1. You can file a claim for any eligible line on your account. You don't need to select which lines you want covered until something happens. Once you file a claim on a line, that line is registered in the program. But you'll still have 2 more slots available that you can use for any eligible line on your account.
    2. You get US-based Tech Coach support for all devices on your account. If you enroll in Total Mobile Protection for a single device, you'll only have Tech Coach support for that device.
    3. You have a pool of shared claims to use. If you cover your lines individually, you get 3 claims per line in 12 months, and those claims can only be used for that line. With Total Mobile Protection Multi-Device for Business, you get a pool of shared claims that you can use across any of your registered lines. For example, if you need to file 9 claims on the same line, you can.
  2. What does it mean to register one of my lines in Total Mobile Protection Multi-Device?

    If you file and complete a claim on a line, that line is officially registered in Total Mobile Protection Multi-Device, and it will take up one of your 3 available coverage slots.

    You only have to register one line at a time. So after filing and completing your first claim, you'll still have 2 more coverage slots available in case something happens to other eligible devices on your account.

    Once a line is registered, it will take one of your line registrations until the line is no longer on your account. If you have more than 3 lines (up to 10) on your account and would like to protect them, you can add coverage for additional lines. Each additional coverage provides 1 coverage slot and 3 more shared claims.

  3. How many claims can I file with Total Mobile Protection Multi-Device?

    You can file up to 9 claims in a 12-month period, across the 3 coverage slots that you get when you first enroll in Total Mobile Protection Multi-Device.

    For each line of additional coverage, you get 3 more claims and one more coverage slot. For example, if you have 5 registration slots for your account, you can have up to 15 claims fulfilled in a 12-month period.

    These claims are flexible and can be used on any eligible device on your account (or any registered line if all your registration slots are full). If you want to use all your claims on a single line, you can.

    Note: Cracked-screen repairs are unlimited and don't count against your claim limit.

  4. I have more than 3 lines on my account. If I fill all 3 registration slots for Total Mobile Protection Multi-Device, how can I get coverage for my other lines?

    When you first sign up for Total Mobile Protection Multi-Device, you have 3 registration slots that you can use for any of the lines on your account. If you fill all 3 slots, you can enroll in additional coverage for $11/month per line, which can be used for any of the remaining unregistered lines on your account (up to a total of 10 lines). For instance, enrolling in additional coverage, can provide you a total of 4 registration slots, 3 that are filled and 1 that is open.

    Each time you fill the last slot on your account, you'll have 30 days to enroll in additional coverage to cover your remaining lines. If you don't add additional coverage within 30 days, any additional lines that you have on your account won't be covered.

    Each line of additional coverage you add to your account also gives you 3 more claims that you can use for any registered line on your account. So, if you have 4 registration slots, you have a total of 12 claims that you can use in a 12-month period.

  5. Is there a maximum number of lines of additional coverage that I can enroll in with Total Mobile Protection Multi-Device?

    You can have as many registration slots as lines on your account, up to a total of 10 registered lines. If you have 10 lines on your account, you can have up to 10 registration slots with a maximum of 30 claims in a 12-month period.

  6. How do I remove one of my lines from Total Mobile Protection Multi-Device?

    Once you file a claim on a line, that line will be registered in Total Mobile Protection Multi-Device and will take up one of your registration slots.

    The line will only be removed from the program if you deactivate the line on your account.

  7. What if I cancel my additional coverage for one of the lines on my account with Total Mobile Protection Multi-Device?

    If you have an open registration slot on your account, the open slot will be canceled.

    If all your registration slots are filled, the last slot you filled will be canceled, and the line that filled that slot will no longer be covered.

    By removing additional coverage, you'll also lose 3 claims from your pool of shared claims (e.g., if you have 10 unused claims and cancel coverage for 2 additional lines, you'll have 4 shared claims left to use on any of the remaining covered lines).

Total Mobile Protection Multi-Device for Business

  1. What are the benefits of Total Mobile Protection Multi-Device for Business instead of purchasing Total Mobile Protection for each individual line?

    Enrolling in coverage for your account with 3 - 10 lines with eligible devices may be better than enrolling in coverage for individual lines because:

    • You can file a claim for any eligible line on your account. You don't need to select which lines you want covered until you file a claim. Once you file a claim, that line is registered in the program. You'll still have your remaining coverage slots available, which you can use for any other eligible line on your account. Plus, a registered line will reopen after 12 months of no claims on that line, allowing you to register a different line when you need to file a claim.
    • You get US-based Tech Coach support for all devices on your account. If you enroll in for Total Mobile Protection for a single device, you'll only have Tech Coach support for that device.

    If you file and complete a claim on a line, that line is registered in Total Mobile Protection Multi-Device for Business, and it will take up one of your available coverage slots.

    After filing and completing your first claim, you'll still have the rest of your remaining coverage slots available. These coverage slots remain open until you file a claim for a device on another line on your account. Then that line will fill the second coverage slot on your account.

    After 12 months of no claims being filed on a line, that line will no longer be registered and the coverage slot will reopen.

  3. How many claims can I file with Total Mobile Protection Multi-Device for Business?

    The number of claims you may file depends on the number of eligible lines you have on your business account:

    • If you have 11 – 24 eligible lines on your account, you can file 33 shared claims in a 12-month period.

    Note: Cracked screen repairs are unlimited and don't count against your claim limit.

  4. If I register all my coverage slots for Total Mobile Protection Multi-Device for Business, how can I get coverage for the remaining lines on my account?

  5. How do I remove one of my lines from Total Mobile Protection Multi-Device for Business?

    Once you file a claim on a line, that line will be registered in Total Mobile Protection Multi-Device for Business and will take up one of your coverage slots.
