Etisalat launches smartphone protection plans
Dubai, July 23, 2014
Etisalat, the UAE’s leading telecommunication services provider, has launched the region’s first smartphone protection plans, which protect handsets within and outside UAE from theft and accidental damage.
The protection plans are priced at Dh120 for a six-month cover or Dh250 for 12 months.
Users can protect their devices against accidental damage including cracked screen, forced theft, liquid damage and defects not covered under phone’s existing warranty. Depending on the nature of the damage, the device will either be repaired or replaced for the customer.
The plans have been launched in partnership with leading insurance provider, AXA Insurance, and are available to all customers who purchase a new smartphone from Etisalat’s business centres or outlets in the UAE.
Smartphone protection plan is only available at the time of purchase of a new smartphone from Etisalat.
Khaled ElKhouly, chief marketing officer at Etisalat UAE, said: “Our competitively priced Smartphone Protection Plans provide our customers with complete peace of mind. Customers can be confident knowing that their phone is protected if anything were to happen to it. At a small price, they can enjoy greater comfort now than having to pay for a costly new phone later.” – TradeArabia News Service
