User-centric plan

Ron Louks, president of Devices and Emerging Solutions at BlackBerry, said the company is aware of the fact that users are productive mobile professionals who depend on their smartphones for day-long activity. Louks added that the plan will instill confidence among customers that repair costs are covered in case of any mechanical or electrical failure or damage from a liquid spill or accidental drop.

investHistorically, the Chinese market has been relatively isolated from international investors, but much is changing there now, making China virtually impossible for the diversified investor to ignore. Earlier this year, CNBC pointed to signs that Chinese regulators may start easing up on their scrutiny of companies after months of clamping down on tech firms. That Read More

Users can add the feature by making a monthly payment, and in turn receive peace of mind to focus on other features and not to worry about repair charges, said Louks.

Users in the United States and Canada can sign up for the BlackBerry Care protection plan at a price of $3.49 per month for a BlackBerry Leap, $3.99 per month for a BlackBerry Classic and $4.49 per month for a BlackBerry Passport. Warrantech Corporation, an Amtrust Financial Company, is overseeing the BlackBerry Care protection plan.

Apart from BlackBerry, rivals such as Apple, Samsung and Google also offer protection plans costing between $79 (iPhone) to $99 (Samsung and Nexus).

Simple, easy plan from BlackBerry

The BlackBerry Care protection is a user-centric plan that shows an understanding of the busy life of mobile professionals. These professionals are always in a rush and consider their smartphones an essential tool for quick communication, collaboration and productivity. Therefore, the Canadian smartphone maker has come up with a plan that offers an additional year of coverage for defects that occur in a phone after the warranty period expires. It covers protection against accidental damage, spillage or breakage and offers the option of a smartphone replacement to minimize downtime in the event of a claim.

The Waterloo, Ontario-based company has devised a simple and easy plan for its users. When a user pays for coverage, he or she will be assisted by a customer service representative in understanding the claim options, including delivery times and location.

Users planning to sign up for the BlackBerry Protection plan can visit the company’s official website.

  1. Apple is now offering a trade in option that includes cross platform trade ins. People trading in their BB10 smartphones will probably will wonder if the BB10 device protection plan is transferable to the iphone. I talked to a Apple representative and he said probably not, but followed to say “normally Iphones’s don’t break down,” I thought no way, but another rep heard us talking and said ” its been over a year now at this Apple Store since we drew up a warranty claim.

  2. What do they mean by a replacement to minimise down time? A day wait, a week wait perhaps a month? So does the warranty people have to decide if user is eligible for a new phone? If the story would have wrote ” with this plan, if you phone stops working, your first trip to a retailer gets you a new phone before you leave. So is this not necessarily the case?
