Unfortunately for the iPad and unlocked iPhone 4 users, they will not be a part of the new protection plan that AT&T will be offering. The new insurance plan will allow users to protect their mobile device for a total of $9.99 per month. This will cover them against the loss, theft, damage or malfunction of devices that are currently not under warranty. While it might seem to be a little bit steep, these plans will protect a lot of customers who otherwise would have to pay to replace their completely new phone.
This is the first time that AT&T will release a service like this, and it will cover any wireless customer that does not have an Apple branded product, because they come with their own insurance policies from the company that allow them to receive work only from Apple employees.
The insurance will allow users to quickly replace their device if it is damaged for any reason, and will also allow them to account for electrical failure after the warranty expires on the phone. The deal will probably have a lot of subscribers. In a day and age where your phone is going to be on you all day every day, you really can not skimp on making sure that you have all of the protections in place to ensure that you do not end up without your phone.
The devices that will be included in the deal include the Samsung Galaxy Tab and new high powered Motorola Atrix 4G unlocked. Users are going to be able to get the new phone for only $50 to $125 - basically less than the amount that they would pay for the phones if they were to get them with a contract, so this deal could be really beneficial - especially for those of us that lose their phones very easily on a regular basis.
