What does a protection plan protect my device from?
Pretty much everything. Leave it at a coffee shop? Take it for a
swim? Break the screen? Our “No Hassle” experience will
get you a ProtectCELL certified device in just a couple of business
Who is eligible for the program?
Customers can enroll at any time. If a customer enrolls at the same
time they purchase a new device from Appalachian Wireless, the plan
becomes effective immediately. If a protection plan is purchased
after the initial point of sale, no requests can be made for 30 days
following the purchase of the plan.
How long do I have to make a request?
Requests can be made at any time, so long as the plan is still in

Will my certified device be the same as my original?
Every effort will be made to send out devices that are exactly the
same as the original. However, in some situations the ProtectCELL
certified device will match the original in all the important
ways—features, capabilities, gadgets, etc.—but may be
different in other less crucial ways, like color.
Why do I have to pay an admin fee if I am already paying a monthly
A ProtectCELL plan works like many other protection-focused
products—there’s a recurring fee to keep the protection plan,
then an additional cost whenever you need a ProtectCELL certified
device. The good news? It’s still significantly cheaper than paying
the full retail price of a new device!
