Breaking your phone or tablet is never fun, especially when it means hunting down a questionable repair store to get it fixed. If you are an AT&T customer with one of the carrier's device insurance plans, you're in luck. Starting November 15, you will be able to get your device's screen repaired through AT&T.
The new repair service is available to everyone on AT&T with the Mobile Insurance, Mobile Protection Pack, Mobile Protection Pack for Business, or Multi-Device Protection Pack programs. Once you fork over the $89 deductible, a certified technician from Asurion will come to you and fix your device on the spot. AT&T also offers a 12-month warranty on all repairs.
However, the program does have several caveats. There are only three Android phones currently supported - the Note 4, Galaxy S5, and Galaxy S6. Broke the screen on your shiny new S7? Well, too bad. Additionally, "Some colors of eligible devices are not covered."
Availability is extremely limited as well, with only 15 cities that will offer the service at launch and 29 more arriving on December 1. Still, if you already have one of AT&T's insurance programs, this is a nice bonus.
