Add Protection to Your Device with Cricket Protect

Cricket Wireless is now giving you a way to protect your device against theft, damage, or loss.

Earlier today, the AT&T prepaid brand announced its latest service called Cricket Protect Open Enrollment. Based on their announcement, the service will be available for a limited time only.

If you have an eligible device, you can add Cricket Protect to your account so it can be protected against damages, loss, theft, and even water damage.

The announcement shares that Cricket Protect can be added within the first 7 days of activation or upgrade. But if you missed this period, you have until March 25, 2018 to enroll your device.

Once your device is enrolled in this service, you'll be able to get the following:

  • Comprehensive phone coverage
  • Fast and convenient replacement process
  • Unexpected replacement expense protection

Part of the reason why Cricket decided to offer this service is so they can provide assistance to their customers who encounter problems with their devices. Based on a 2015 study conducted by Asurion Mobile Claims Data, 1 in 5 devices gets lost, stolen or damage. Adding to this 70% of such incidents take place within the first 12 months of the device.

With Cricket's Cricket Protect service in place, you can get the assurance you need for your device.

If you are interested in enrolling your device in this service, all you need to do is bring the eligible device you purchased from Cricket or a BYOP phone to a nearby Cricket Wireless store. The device should be in good working condition and should be brought to the store before March 25, 2018 so you can have it enrolled in the service.

  1. Wow, Cricket's deductible for an old iPhone 6S or a 6Plus is an outrageous $250!


    So basically, Cricket will take your money for months of insurance payments, and then when something bad happens to your phone, they will only give you the equivalent of $50 of store credit toward a replacement (because the 6S is $300 and you would owe the first $250 out of pocket).

    What a rip off.

  2. Hmm, wonder what the deductible will be??? That is the one part of phone insurance that is the deal breaker for many.

  3. Phone insurance is a scam. Between the deductible and monthly payments you're paying for a new phone. Most Cricket phones are sub $100. Just spend $20 on a case and screen protector.

    1. Agreed! A $20 case and screen protector is probably the best "insurance" anyway, and definitely less expensive.

  4. saw someone drop their phone. right on the screen. crack. people can be such fumble thumbs with their phones.
