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.
