Device protection gives you some peace of mind by protecting your device. If you're not a T-Mobile customer, you can learn more about Protection<360>® (P<360>) before you sign up, or if you already have device protection and need to file a claim, find out how.


Benefits of P<360>

Protection<360> covers the repair or replacement of your device in the event of hardware service issues (mechanical breakdown), even after the manufacturer's warranty expires, accidental damage, and loss and theft. 

  • For complete coverage details, benefits, limitations, exclusions, and costs, visit
  • Device protection is not required to activate service with T-Mobile, but without protection, you may be responsible for the full replacement cost of your device if it is accidentally damaged, lost, stolen or suffers a mechanical breakdown. 
  • Protection<360> gives you access to both an insurance plan and a service contract plan including Apple Care Service for eligible Apple devices. In New York, these options can be bought separately1

1In 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 the device was bought from another provider: To enroll in the Insurance Device Protection Plan and receive the same discount, visit a T-Mobile store or Contact Us within 30 days of enrollment. You must show proof of service contract.

2This applies when and where repair service is available; otherwise, we’ll provide a replacement device and collect the appropriate service fee/deductible based on device tier for all other accidental damage.
