  • Claims may be fulfilled with new or reconditioned equipment. Reconditioned equipment may have minor cosmetic flaws. Replacement of 'accessories' may be with generic or non-original manufacturer accessories. If the exact model is not available, the replacement will be of like kind and quality.
  • Your plan has two agreements: Insurance and Extended Warranty. Insurance covers lost, stolen and accidental damage incidents. Extended Warranty Agreement covers incidents of malfunction after the expiration of the manufacturer's warranty. When combined with Insurance, it forms the complete Cricket Protect Program.

If your service is interrupted due to non-payment, Cricket Protect will be canceled. You will not be allowed to re-enroll the same device.

If you have an account with multiple lines, you'll need to add Cricket Protect to each line separately.

If you have Cricket Protect for your current phone and you upgrade to a new eligible Cricket device, Cricket Protect will still be active on your account. If you have Cricket Protect for your current phone and you upgrade to a non-eligible Cricket device, Cricket Protect will be removed.
