ED#190 : HTC To Provide Free Accidental Damage Warranty For The HTC One M9!
Despite their concerted efforts to deliver well-designed, high-quality smartphones, HTC still lagged far behind industry giant, Samsung. With a slew of other Android smartphone manufacturers fighting for the same market segment, HTC needs to elevate themselves above the crowd. That's why HTC will have an ace up their sleeves when the HTC One M9 starts selling at the end of this month - the Uh Oh Protection accidental damage warranty.
Under the Uh Oh Protection warranty, HTC One M9 users don't have to worry about protecting their smartphones with tempered glass screen protectors or waterproof cases. Even if they drop their HTC One M9 into the toilet bowl or roll over it with a Hummer, HTC will replace it free of charge, no questions asked!
All you have to do is call a toll-free number to order a replacement phone. It will be shipped to you and you will have 30 days to send your damaged phone to them. Yes, it's super convenient, and they even give you time to migrate your data from the damaged phone (if possible) to the new phone. Best of all - HTC will not charge you any fees or deductibles!
To top it off, they even have a No Claim Bonus (NCB) of sorts... If you don't claim a replacement phone from them, they will offer you $100 off your next HTC One smartphone!
If you are looking for a bargain and want to avail yourself of the same Uh Oh Protection warranty, you will be glad to know that HTC will offer the same Uh Oh Protection for the HTC One M8, but only if it is purchased on or after 31st of March 2015, when the HTC One M9 and the Uh Oh Protection warranty are officially available for sale.
Of course, there are a few caveats...
HTC will only offer one replacement per HTC One smartphone purchased.
Uh Oh Protection does NOT cover lost or stolen HTC One smartphones.
Uh Oh Protection is only valid during the standard 12-month warranty period.
Uh Oh Protection is only available in the United States of America.
Yeah, that was WTF moment right there. It would have been a "killer feature" if HTC offered this warranty worldwide. However, it looks like they are only going to offer Uh Oh Protection in the US. We can only hope that is the first country it will roll-out, and that HTC will eventually offer it worldwide.
