Our most comprehensive protection for your device, starting at $7/mo. per device depending on your device (plus applicable tax).

Enjoy peace of mind with device benefits, service, and content protection.

  • Covers accidental damage, hardware service (mechanical breakdown), loss, and theft
  • Walk-in and repair services for eligible devices
  • JUMP!® Upgrades on Equipment Installment Plan devices
  • Unlimited screen protector replacement
  • McAfee® Security for T-Mobile with ID Theft Protection
  • Tips and support with the self-service Protection<360>® app by Assurant®

You're not required to purchase device protection to activate service with T-Mobile. But, without protection, you may be responsible for the full replacement cost of your device.

By choosing Protection<360> you have access to both an insurance plan and a service contract plan. In New York, these options can be bought separately.

*In New York: 

  • The Insurance Device Protection Plan provides coverage for accidental damage, loss and theft.
  • The Service Contract Device Protection Plan provides coverage for hardware service issues (mechanical breakdown), JUMP!® Upgrades, unlimited screen protector replacements and access to tech support and mobile security apps.

Discount for both plans: If you buy both the Insurance Device Protection Plan and the Service Contract Device Protection Plan, you'll get a discount of up to $1.50 on the Insurance Device Protection Plan, depending on the device tier. 

If you buy a service contract from another provider: If you choose to buy a service contract from another provider and want to enroll in the Insurance Device Protection Plan and receive the same discount, you'll need to visit a T-Mobile store or call 1-800-937-8997 within 30 days of enrollment. You'll need to show proof of your service contract.
