    Finally ordered a new Passport using a Coupon code on Shop Blackberry and they offer 30 days to sign up for the new Warranty Plan.

    Seems like a good deal at $4.50 per month.

    Is this the best plan out there for accidental damage, dropping and warranty coverage?

    I'm paying $7/mo to my carrier for similar coverage, so if the BlackBerry plan were available to me, I would gladly switch. Sadly, I've had my Passport too long to be eligible.

    Yes you have to sign up by 30 days of purchase. Sounds very similar to the Apple care Warranty for iPhones except we pay monthly instead of $100 upfront for three years.

    I've never bothered with all my previous blackberry devices to buy warranties as they're built like tanks and never had a problem.

    The Passport seems a bit more fragile however and easier to drop so seriously considering the warranty. I hate cases that bulk up the phone.

    There is a purchase time limit! Unfortunately I purchased my Passport last year at launch and I missed the time limit!

    Yeah, that's a bit of a bummer! At the very least bit of consolation, this phone is a beast and should last years on its own. I'll definitely have to consider it next time. Wish the option would have been there from day one though!

    What are the prices for BlackBerry Warranty? I saw above its $4.50/month. Is there an option to pay for the whole year, or multiple years?

    That is the s***s. I'm betting the majority of the Passports already sold were bought more than 30 days ago. Mine was.

    From reading the reviews on the support they get. I think not. However, maybe since they are going to charge it might make for better service.

    Seems to me BlackBerry is missing a revenue stream here...the warranty should be available to any Passport owner to opt in to, no matter when they bought the device.

    $4.50 per month is a high price for a warranty 99% will likely never need.

    Then people could buy it after their phone was already broken, and make a claim.

    Broken screens, worn out batteries and faulty keyboards are going to be a problem for more than 1% of users. If my Passport were within the 30 day window, I'd seriously consider it.

    At less than $60/year (not sure of Canadian pricing), it's actually not that high a price. One screen replacement would pay for it (not that I've every broken a screen).

    I may be getting double type (after 3 months of daily use), so if it keeps going I'll probably get a new keyboard under warranty later in the year. With this insurance plan, I'd know I'd have a second in year 2, which would help my device reach year 3. I'm going to hazard a guess, but a Passport keyboard is likely a more expensive part to get and have installed than on the Q10 (which ran about $50 - $60 around me minimum), so a keyboard replacement would pay for the insurance as well.

    This article suggests that all Passport owners have an opportunity to purchase until April 12th regardless of purchase date.

    Also looks like CDN pricing is $5.25/mo.

    There's also a $100 deductible for this service. So it may be cheaper to buy your own replacement keyboard if it wears out. Screen MIGHT be another story.

    Which people can also do within 30 days of purchase date as well.

    Does this only work if you buy the phone direct from Blackberry? And will they replace or fix a phone free of charge? I currently pay $10 a month for warranty and have to pay $250 to get my phone fixed through Bell.

    I dunno. The protection plan seems pretty steep at 5 bucks a month cdn. I bought the phone with my visa and my visa gives an extra year on top of the manufacturer's warranty...
