My VZW 2013 Moto X's screen has been flickering as I turn it on or off, as well as when notifications show up on Active Display. Like the whole screen will flash white for a split second.
Anyways, I've done all the basic troubleshooting steps: Reboot, factory reset, etc. And I want to have it repaired/replaced (ideally) under WARRANTY (not insurance since this isn't the result of damage).
I've just recently upgraded my wife and I to the LG G3 and during this process, Best Buy has updated their warranty to no longer have free accidental coverage. It's now $150 if the phone has been dropped or has other physical damage. This made it the same as Sprint.
So I started to look into other options for insurance and have yet to come nay closer to finding a good deal with the service.
SquareTrade, a company that provides warranty repairs for consumer electronics, revealed in a report today that Americans have spent an approximate cumulative total of $5.9 billion on damaged iPhones since the device’s introduction in 2007.
I've never got the cellphone insurance or extended warranty when getting a new phone and never needed it until I shattered the screen on my DNA a couple of weeks ago. Now I am stuck with an ancient Droid Bionic......blah.
So now I am waiting to buy a Turbo outright and I am planning on getting an extended warranty or insurance.
Today, T-Mobile USA and Assurant Solutions announced the availability of a new mobile device protection program for T-Mobile customers in the United States. The program, called Monthly4G Handset Protection (MHP), includes coverage for accidental damage, water damage, loss, theft, and mechanical or electrical malfunction after the manufacturer’s warranty has expired.
Long story short, I got a Microsoft Surface Pro 2 as a desktop replacement, and I like it so much that I'm going to upgrade to a Surface Pro 3. In addition to the Surface Pro 2 (128gb version), I also have a black type keyboard and the desktop docking station. An extended warranty covers the unit and the keyboard and includes accidental damage.
