Cracked screen on leased phone with insurance

 Since I have insurance and I lease my iPhone 7 is the cracked screen covered 100% ?

Yes and no. While the screen is covered, there is still a deductible that would have to be paid for the repairs. Much like insurance on a car.

 

My recommendation would be to contact Apple first or go through one of the various Apple stores and see if they can help you. The repairs through them may be cheaper then the actual deductible.

Thanks for the assist @smotrs.  @sfath75 you can take a look at the prices of repairs and claims by going to the Sprint Total Equipment Protection page.

@sfath75 I should also mention, stay away from those fly by night stores or kiosks you find in the mall. You could potentially void the warranty including the insurance if they don't do it per Apples specifications.

Re: Cracked screen on leased phone with insurance

 So what is the difference between Sprint insurance the total protection plus and Apple Care insurance I kind a looked at both and it seems like Apple Care is way better when I called the sprint store today they told me just to make an appointment at an Apple store and they will swap out the phone and I have to pay the deductible

 I have sprint total protection plus and then I happen to look and see that there is AppleCare which is a lot cheaper now I don't know which one I should have I'm gonna make an appointment at the Apple Store but I'm thinking about canceling my sprint insurance because it's more money and it seems like it covers less

  1. It's only available with Apple devices.
  2. If you have a store local to you, they can handle it in the store. If no store is available, both would have to be sent in.
    1. TEP would go to a 3rd party insurance company called Asurion who you would pay the deductible to.
    2. AC would go to Apple and you would pay them the deductible.
  3. If you had an Android, I would mention that with TEP, they can sub the phone with another equivalent if they don't have any replacement versions of the phone you send in. I haven't heard of that happening with Apple devices though.

If you have Apple Care, then you have no need to have TEP as well. I would cancel it. Both in the grand scheme of things do the same thing.

Make sure you can get the AC added before cancelling TEP. Usually you only have X amount of months from time of purchase to have it added for said device. Hate to see you without either.

So I'm going to Apple Store today it's $129 to fix it. If I keep the receipt will STPP will they reimburse me? They are more money than Apple care so might drop sprints and get apple care

No, I haven't ever heard of a reimbursement. You can try, but I seriously doubt they will.  Smiley Happy
