Cover your Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge from accidental damage with Samsung’s Protection Plus Mobile Elite plans


Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge DSC09267

The Samsung Galaxy S6 and Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge may come outfitted with Gorilla Glass 4 on the front and back, but that doesn’t mean the devices are indestructible. In fact, we’ve seen enough “drop tests” around YouTube to know that just one drop could potentially shatter the front or back if landed just right.

It’s definitely not “Uh Oh protection,” but if you’re willing to shell out a few extra dollars, you can protect your shiny new investment from accidental damages with Samsung’s Protection Plus Mobile Elite plans. The plan costs $99 for the regular S6, and $130 for the S6 Edge. It covers all accidental damage for 2 years (up to 3 claims) and for every time you bring them a broken S6, you’ll still have to pay a deductible: $75 for the regular S6, and $95 for the S6 Edge. It doesn’t match Sony’s $80 2-year accidental damage plan with $0 deductible, but it’s still better than paying an extra $700 should your phone wind up in the bottom of a pool somewhere.

Most of you worried about this kind of thing probably already have insurance through your carrier, but for those that bought the phone unlocked or off-contract, it’s a nice option. Keep in mind for your S6 to be eligible for Protection Plus Mobile Elite, you only have 30 days from the date of purchase to pick up the insurance. Also, the S6 has to be purchased from an “authorized” Samsung retailer or wireless carrier. For more details, check out Samsung’s page here.

  1. What they won’t tell you is if it’s lost or stolen, you’re SOL.

    1. No, they are very upfront about that, however you can blame people who abused it to make it like that now. People filing fake claims, paying a small deductible and then having 2 devices, or selling one for big bucks.

  2. Meh…. I’ll stick with my squaretrade plan… $99 and $75 deductible on GS6 Edge.

    1. Is it for one or two years ?

      1. Squaretrade’s plan is 2 years.

      2. 2 years

      3. Epic Mobile has a monthly, yearly, and two year plan. All less than square trade.

      4. 2 years.

    2. I was just about to say the same thing. $99 up front or $8/month, up from the $5 it use to be.

  3. you would since you own the company. Self promotion FTL

    1. Owning the company doesn’t negate the points I made…I do think we are the best…self promoting is bad? I believe in what I do and my company…I won’t apologize for that. But I appreciate your opinion.

  4. I just plain don’t trust that, it sounds too good to be true.

  5. I’ve never heard of Epic Mobile before. It sounds interesting but I’d like to read some feedback from real customers, not from shills. Can you point me to some relevant discussions on XDA, Reddit, etc?

    1. To be honest Epic Mobile was a locally focused business with no forum presence. We are looking to take what we do national, to save hundreds of thousands of people money. We would love to be reviewed on a forum just to show what we do is real. Check us out on Facebook. So to answer your question, I’d love to point you to hundreds of reviews, but truth is that we don’t have that kind of Web presence at this time. I hope this helps!

  6. Well then, it must be true. LOL

    1. Feel free to try it yourself. It’s a legit company with legit values. It’s illegal to advertise something you don’t do.

      1. There is false/misleading advertising everyday. However, it just doesn’t seem genuine when a company makes claims and then have other people up-vote their comments giving the illusion that what they say is true when they work for the same company or represents them. Now, if the owner wanted to come on this site or any site and introduce themselves and possibly have people try their business for a discount or for free to get real life opinions, then that is different.

        1. And that is completely fair. I am the COO of Epic Mobile. By no means where we trying to “boost” people’s opinions, we simply wanted to see what people’s reactions were. We have not sold online and have relied on retailers to sell our plans, which proves to be successful however, we were focusing on our local market a bit too much, and we want to grow nationally like any other company. So if you will, please give me a chance to do this right.

          My Name is Andy Barrows, I am the COO of Epic Mobile. I have worked in the wireless industry for about 7 years for multiple carriers. I have a wife, and 2 sons and live in South central Pennsylvania. I started Epic Mobile as a alternative to all of the negative static I heard on a daily basis about the typical “cell insurance companies”. I saw hundreds of people with broken phones that had insurance but could not afford the deductable, and hundreds of people that were tired of ultimately paying full price for a phone with insurance. On top of my experience we spent almost a year researching all of the independent providers, and their the larger main providers. We wanted to be the best, so we corrected all of the objections that we faced, and saw. We truly believe that our company will make a revolutionary movement with cell phone owners, and those who typically can not afford outrageous deductibles. Although I am not able to “give away” our plans due to the nature of our business, I would really appreciate some honest feedback on what we do, and how we do it. What changes could we make to make it better? What do you like the best of what we have to offer? Our plans have recently been remapped and we are in process of updating our t&c to reflect these new plans but, other than that just take a look.

          Thank you!

          1. Can you list the deductibles for the following phone models? LG g3, Samsung s6, s6 edge, iPhone 6, 6+, 5,5s, HTC m8/m9, moto x, Nexus 6?

            Because asking people to buy your insurance without telling them the deductibles upfront is an absurd way to do business.

            Thank you.

          2. $75 for refurbished phone
            $125 for new phone gaurantee

            This is for all phones

  7. Uh, can someone running this site do something about the deluge of spam here?

  8. Wow, what a great deal, Andy! All we need in case of theft is the cop’s home address. From your website:
    “For any and all theft or vandalism claims, we do require a police report along with the officer’s name and address”

    I’ll have to check my huge binder of cops’ full names and addresses, gathered from the hundreds of times they’ve volunteer that info. Unbelievable.

    Btw, excellent work asking your wife/sister/cousin “Amber Barrows” to give your company 5 stars on Facebook. Very classy, and totally unbiased.

    1. Feedback appreciated. Our Facebook means nothing to us as far as reviews. Does that even matter? And yes we require the cops station address, and name To verify. I understand the wording may not directly say that but it will be changed To reflect that. We can’t stop family from rating us and I don’t feel that an apology is justified due to family tying to support us. Again does it even matter? People pay for reviews all day long on facebook. You have seen it yourself that what we offer is the best deal around. So give us a shot and give us an honest review, not one because you are upset that we posted on your thread.

      1. I don’t know anything about this company however I have no issues with them requiring this information. It’s to try and keep people from being dishonest, and most people are. I work in the insurance field and we require police reports in certain circumstances. One, it is a criminal offense to file a false report, so that will help keep people from being dishonest, will it stop everyone? No, but it will help. Especially if the person is saying over and over something is being stolen.

  9. Thata y im not buying Samsung, they freaking leaches, I love htc for that uh oh plan, but sadly the m9 not worth upgrading from the m8 to me

  10. Can someone tell why my previous comments stating my concerns about epic mobiles terms and conditions were deleted?@Chris Chavez maybe you can explain?

  11. This seems like a much better deal than the Verizon plan, or am I missing something? $7 a month and $150 deductible?

  12. Dayum sammy stole apple pay too? Lol.
