Life is full of surprises, and many times they are not good ones. We have all destroyed our phones at some point, right? If you haven’t, you probably need to add more action to your life. Either way, HTC knows many of you will damage your One M9 at some point. Instead of trying to profit from your tragedies, they are introducing a new program that will have most of us at least considering getting an HTC One M9.
It is actually a bit of a game changer. HTC calls it UH OH Protection, and it’s pretty much a program that will grant any HTC One M9 owner a smartphone replacement in case it should face an unfortunate fate. That’s right – HTC is pretty much giving you insurance against accidental damage… for free.
Of course, this program is limited. You can’t just run around replacing your phone as many times as you wish, right? The trick is that UH OH Protection will be active only for 12 months after the phone’s purchase. Want to hear the cool part? Those who don’t use it can actually get $100 credit towards their next HTC One device.
The offers don’t stop there. UH OH Protection covers pretty much anything. You can get your phone replaced if you have a cracked screen, a water damaged device and even if you decide to switch carriers! All you would have to do is call HTC Care at 1-866-449-8358 and tell them your situation. They will overnight you the phone right away.
“While other smartphone companies look at uh-oh moments as a way to profit off of you, we are focused on adding value to owning an HTC One. If you don’t need UH OH Protection, we are going to give you $100 off your next HTC One. If something does happen, we’re going to take care of you – quickly.” -Jason Mackenzie, President of HTC Americas
The only caveat here is that this happens to be a US-only offer. Bummer, but hopefully this changes soon. Paired with HTC Advantage, UH OH Protection is looking mighty awesome. This is totally insane, if you ask us. It’s literally a game changer. With UH OH Care in the equation, anyone who is not at least considering an HTC One M9 is definitely nuts.
