What is Asurion?

Asurion phone insurance helps cover the cost to repair or replace a cell phone if it is lost, stolen or damaged. The company also offers technical support to assist with some of the most common cell phone malfunctions. Its representatives can help you back up your contacts and photos, and you can get in touch with a mobile expert every time you have an issue on your device.

The Asurion Protection plan also includes an extended warranty on other expensive electronics, including TVs, laptops, desktop computers, tablets and home appliances.

What does Asurion cover?

Asurion phone insurance covers some of the most common issues cell phone users have with their phones. The company’s protection plans cover cracked phone screens, physical damage, mechanical failure, loss, theft, water damage and normal wear and tear. The insurance extends to accessories that come with your phone, such as chargers and earbuds.

If your phone is damaged in any of these ways, you can file a claim on the Asurion website. If the phone cannot be repaired, Asurion can send out a replacement phone the very next business day.

To enroll your cell phone in the Asurion cell phone coverage plan, you must call or visit your wireless provider to see if your phone is eligible. You're typically only eligible within the first 30 days of activating or upgrading your phone. The type of devices that are covered depends on the wireless provider.

How to file a claim with Asurion

To file a claim:

  1. Go to the Asurion website and choose your wireless provider from the list.
  2. Enter your phone number and follow the instructions to report what happened to your device
  3. You will be notified of the status of your claim and can track the claim online
  4. Asurion will send you an email with tracking information for your replacement device

If you file a claim but need to cancel, you can do it right on the website. Depending on your wireless carrier, you can file up to three claims in a year.

Asurion phone insurance attempts to send you a replacement device that is the same make and model of your old one. However, sometimes the exact same phone is not available, and the company’s representatives choose an alternative that matches the form and functionality of the lost or damaged device. Your replacement device may be new or refurbished and the color, brand, model and features could vary based on availability.

Asurion prices

The Asurion wireless phone protection plan costs $7.15 per phone per month, and there is a cap of $1,500 per claim. Asurion offers other services at different price points, including cracked screen repair that starts at $29.

You must pay a deductible before insurance kicks in and pays for a repair or replacement. The deductible is typically far less than the retail price of a new phone, which saves you money in the long run.

Asurion FAQ

Does Asurion cover cracked screens?

Yes. Simply file a claim and, once it is confirmed as eligible, you can drop your phone off at an authorized repair dealer, have an expert repair technician come to you or mail your device to Asurion. Cracked phones can typically be repaired in a matter of hours, and authorized service repairs come with a one-year limited repair warranty.

Are Asurion phones refurbished?

Some are, yes. If you qualify for a replacement phone, it will either be a new phone or a refurbished phone.

How do I track my Asurion claim?

There is an easy-to-use tracking feature on the Asurion website that helps you track the status of your claim.

Where is Asurion located?

Asurion is based in Nashville but has locations across the country.

How long does Asurion take to ship?

Most replacement phones are shipped the day after the claim is finalized.

Is Asurion worth it?

Asurion offers a layer of protection if you are prone to dropping, breaking or losing your phone. However, if you're picky about the phone that you have, it's important to remember that you may not always receive a replacement phone that is identical to your lost or damaged device. The monthly cost is relatively inexpensive compared to the cost of repairing or replacing high-end phones, which makes the service worth it for people who want to protect their devices.

I went to AT&T today due to my phone being dropped by another person completely shattering the screen and causing my phone to be unusable. I was so upset and not sure if anything could be done to fix it. So I went to att and as soon as I walked into the store I was greeted by a employee with a smile and he quickly took my phone to the tech to see about fixing it.

When the tech came out and told me it could be fixed and all I needed to do was make a claim on my insurance I was so relieved. The tech helped me fill out the claim online and took care of everything. He was very professional and sweet. He assured me that my phone would be able to be fixed and just to give him a couple of hours. Both the employee and the tech truly made my day and I was so grateful for them. When I returned to the store my phone was fixed and looked like new. I give them a five stars and want them to know that they did an excellent today. I recommend the store on Lakeshore for anyone who needs help for their broken phone or maybe just want to buy a new one. The service at this store is excellent. Thank you.

    Generally going through insurance on any product is always a hassle and aggravating! With Asurion it was very simple, and easy to navigate! I cracked my screen on my Galaxy phone, and I was able to do a claim via the internet. It only took me 5 minutes to complete! It even gave me an option to have them come to my location to fix the phone screen, although I went to the go to location option. They gave me a list of locations near me that was able to make the fix, so I gave them a call.

    They were able to look up quickly that I had made the claim and said I could come by anytime to drop the phone off and if it were before 5 pm they could do it same day! They said it would take 2-3 hours and they had it done in exactly that time! They sent my wife a text saying it was done as that was the number I left for them to contact me. I picked it up and that was it, cost me 40 bucks! I gotta say, the traffic on the way home was worse than the whole broken screen incident! Haha thanks again guys!

    I was at uBreakiFix for a different issue all together and I happen to stand there at the counter waiting for me to be waited on. A lady came in with a laptop and she says I have the Home Plus insurance and I asked, "What is that?" She says, "It’s great to have." She said, "Everything in your household is covered in one monthly fee." I was so surprised that everything is covered in my house and they said, "Yes. That is electronic after your waiting period of 31 days of file could be claimed."

    So I called and talk to someone online about the service and makes assured me that everything that I own in my home that’s electronic is covered. "Even your doorbell on your outside door is covered. If there’s any type of problem, even if you have a tablet, a laptop, Xbox is covered." I just couldn’t believe that is true and I did talk to someone about it and they said, "Yes, it is all covered." So I’m gonna mention this to my friends about this service. Thank you very very much.

    Repair was perfect. 4 stars only because of scheduling issues. I was cancelled because repair tech was sick. I was called the night before and the man in the phone rescheduled me for the weekend. The next morning I missed a call from another Asurion person. Tried to call back and was on hold for extended time. >30 minutes. Had to use self schedule online and next appointment available was quite a bit in the future. I figured worst case scenario, someone showed up for the weekend like the first man on the phone said he scheduled me and we cancel the self “rescheduled” appointment could be cancelled.

    No one showed up on the weekend or called me. I had to wait for the “rescheduled” appointment. I didn’t miss the appointment. It may appear in your system that I rescheduled because the appointment didn’t work for me but that is not what happened. Your tech was sick (which I understand totally) but communication broke down between the night before my original appointment and the next day when someone called me back.

    Original review: April 22, 2022

    Asurion replaced an LG 5 phone that my wife was using that had a cracked screen and a chronic weak battery issue with a LG G7 ThinQ Silver phone for a nominal additional charge of less than $200.00. The phone was mailed and received within 48 hours. We called the phone number provided with the phone for assistance in getting the phone set up. The person we talked to was knowledgeable and efficient and within an hour or so we had the phone connected to the internet, WIFI, the printer, and had retrieved all of my wife's emails, photos, phone contacts, etc. Unfortunately the text messages were not retrievable but no great loss.

    There is, however, one issue that has not been resolved. The charger that was received with the LG G7 was not compatible with the phone. I called Asurion Customer Service and was told that a new charger would be sent. It has been four weeks and we have not yet received a compatible charger for the new phone. The issue with the charger is the only thing that kept me from giving a five star rating.

    Great place and fast service. Customer service was amazing and I like how the repair was done less than 1 hour and I received a text when my device was ready. They answered all my questions and gave me quotes on another device that needs repair.

    When I had an issue with my first replacement phone Asurion went above and beyond to resolve the issue. They had another phone at my house delivered by a representative who made sure the phone was activated properly. I am very satisfied with this service and their representative's knowledge and assistance.

    My tech Nick was AWESOME!!! He set expectations and exceeded them!!!! He was the best. Nick was not only on time. He was even early which was even better and the best thing was that he got my shattered screen and frame of my phone fixed in 15 minutes.
