Device protection gives you some peace of mind by protecting your device. If you already have device protection and need to file a claim, find out how.


Our Protection<360>® and Device Protection plans cover the replacement of your device in the event of hardware service/mechanical breakdown issues, accidental damage, and loss and theft--even after the manufacturer's warranty expires. 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.



Protecting your device with insurance gets you some amazing benefits, especially when you choose Protection<360>.
