Cricket Protect

Program Overview

Your phone is an important part of your life. Isn't it worth protecting? In fact, 1 in 5 devices is lost, stolen, or damaged every day, and 64% of these types of incidents occur within the first 12 months.* From leaving your phone at a restaurant to accidentally dropping it in the pool, Cricket Protect has you covered. With Cricket Protect, you get:

  • Comprehensive phone coverage to meet your real-life needs
  • A fast and convenient replacement process to get a working phone back in your hands
  • Protection from having to buy a new phone at full retail cost

*Based on 2017 Asurion Mobile Claims Data

Cricket Protect is an optional feature that can be purchased with new phones or phone upgrades** and some phones that are previously owned brought to Cricket (BYOD). See covered devices.
