    Since this is the 1st phone I've had in 5-6 years that wasn't company issued, I wanted to get a protection plan for it. I looked at my carrier, squaretrade, and local repair shops. I found on Blackberry.com that they offer a good protection plan for a lot cheaper than I found anywhere else. It's $4.49/month with a $129 deductible per incident. This was a higher deductible than squaretrade, but lower per/month cost and square trade is a one time up front cost. Just an fyi for anyone looking for the same thing.

    Good call on that. The BB insurance covers all of the things squaretrade doesn't. And square trade was a lot more.

    Will I be able to use this Protection Plan for the Verizon Priv (When it comes out)?

    Yes. It's from Blackberry directly and you can sign up regardless of where you go the phone. The only stipulations I saw was that you have sign up for it within 30 days of purchase (purchase has to be new in the box) and you certify that it is new condition with no damage. It took me about 5 minutes to sign up for it. I also like the fact that they will ship you a new device overnight once the claim is approved and the deductible paid.

    So If my Verizon Priv gets damaged, BlackBerry will send me a Verizon Priv as a replacement? I didn't know that they could do that. BlackBerry doesn't sell VZW compatible phones on ShopBlackBerry.

    I'm not a lawyer and I'm only going on what was sent to me when I signed up. This protection plan is directly through Blackberry. I had to select my carrier when I signed up, where I bought it, online/in store, etc. I'm pretty sure that if you got the plan, Blackberry would be able to pull a model for whatever carrier they sell to from their warehouse and ship it...but that's just my thoughts.

    I bought the slightly more expensive month to month insurance policy from Rogers Wireless because it covers loss and damage including broken screen.
