Majority of our Canadian carriers have some sort of system in place when a customer unintentionally damages their device. For Rogers customers it’s “Handset Protection Guarantee”, TELUS has the “Device Protection Plan”, Bell has the “Smart/Phone Care” program and SaskTel recently launched their “Wireless Device Protection Plan”.
Now joining the others is MTS with their “Wireless Protection Program”. There are a few different price points that offer different level of protection. Topping out at the highest is the “Complete Program” for $7/month. This covers you for accidental damage (including liquid damage), loss, theft, and malfunction after the manufacturer warranty expires (The Wireless Protection Program is not available for iPhones). For $5/month the Enhanced Program gives you everything the Complete Program does, but doesn’t cover any device malfunctions past the warranty period. Finally, the Extended Warranty Program simply cover the device for any malfunction after the manufacturer warranty expires, this is priced at $3/month.
