If you work in the communications or the marketing industry, you have to stay connected all the time. Luckily, this is not difficult because today we have access to high end mobile devices like smartphones and tablets. Today’s smartphones are as powerful as the desktop computers of the 1990s. Still, they are small enough to fit inside your pockets. Mobile devices allow you to take your work with you wherever you go. They make it possible for you to answer work emails while reclining on a couch in your sweat pants or relaxing on the beach.
However, this portability has some negative aspects too. When you always carry your devices around, they are more likely to suffer wear and tear. You may spill liquids on your devices or drop them accidentally. These accidents can damage your device and isolate you from the world. This is difficult for a mobile professional who needs to be available 24 hours a day 7 days a week.
The BlackBerry Care Protection Plan can take care of these unexpected situations.
Mobile professionals are constantly on the go and their smartphones travel with them. Any mishap such as a major drop or a liquid spill can leave you without your smartphone. This can be disastrous because your phone is your communication and collaboration tool.
The BlackBerry Care Protection Plan is designed for BlackBerry users. It is an affordable warranty solution that provides extended protection against accidental damage. North American customers who own a BlackBerry Passport or a BlackBerry Classic can benefit from this plan. It will also cover the upcoming BlackBerry Leap.
What does the plan offer?
The plan offers electrical and mechanical breakdown coverage for an extra year after the standard one year warranty expires. It also provides coverage for damage resulting from improper handling. For example, liquid spillage and drops are covered. Poor handling may lead to screen breakage. It is also covered.
Should problems arise and you make a claim, you will have the option of a replacement. This will minimize downtime. Most mobile professionals are dependent on their smartphones. Their productivity will take a beating if they don’t have access to their smartphone for an extended period.
BlackBerry Care Protection Plan is currently only available to Passport and Classic users in the US and Canada.
The monthly payment plan makes it easy to protect your productivity tool. You have to purchase the BlackBerry Care Protection Plan within 30 days of buying your BlackBerry device.
What about existing users of the Passport and the Classic? They too need peace of mind, right? Don’t worry. BlackBerry has taken care of them as well.
If more than 30 days have passed since you purchased your device, BlackBerry still has a plan for you. All US and Canadian users who bought their Classic and Passport after November 23, 2014 can benefit from this if they purchase the plan between March 16th and April 12th.
