Viaero Assurance Program

Its tough being a smartphone!

Assurance program

That’s why your smartphone needs the peace of mind that comes with Viaero’s Assurance Service Program, a membership program that protects you and your phone from anything and everything.
  • Protection against loss or theft
  • Protection against water or physical damage
  • Protection against malfunction
Assurance ensures your busy life stays on track with
  • Device Security to help you scan it, find it, or remotely wipe it (requires the SafeStore app)
  • Safe zones to alert you when your family devices enter or leave an area you designate (requires the SafeStore app)
  • Cloud backup and transfer of pictures, contacts, messages to your new device (requires the SafeStore app)
  • Same day priority shipment of your new device (when notified before noon)

Add peace of mind with Viaero’s Assurance Service Program. At only $11/month, Assurance actually costs you much less than going without protection. Have multiple phones? Then you'll appreciate that we have lowered the cost of lines 5 or more down to $7/month.

Viaero’s Assurance Service Program provides you peace of mind several ways. In addition to our comprehensive equipment coverage, Viaero provides features that make the Assurance Service Program the best equipment service program available for Android and Apple devices.

Features available to Viaero Assurance Service Program subscribers:
  1. Device Security Locate device by sounding an alarm or finding it via an online map, lock it remotely if lost or stolen, or even wipe the data, all through the SafeStore web portal.

  3. Cloud Backup 50GB online storage of your device contacts, photos, and videos.

I own an Apple device. How is Assurance for my Apple better than AppleCare+?

  • Get Loss/Theft replacement, which is not available through AppleCare+!
  • Get Priority Shipping replacement direct to your home!
  • Get 50GB Cloud storage for free!
  • Get SafeZone Monitoring (know when your phone leaves an area you set)!

I own an Android device. Why do I want to get Assurance?

  • Get the same great coverage and priority replacement you currently enjoy!
  • Get 50GB Cloud backup for contacts, photos and videos!
  • Get Malware and Wi-Fi network protection!
  • Get Remote Lock and Unlock of your device!
  • Get Location assistance and track your phone!
  • Create safe zones that notify you your device enters or leaves the area!

What is the processing fee I pay for each incident?

  • Basic phones and entry-level smartphones/tablets will pay $50 per incident
  • Mid-range smartphones/tablets will pay $100 per incident
  • High-end smartphones/tablets will pay $200 per incident

ASP customers with Apple devices will need to have a credit card ready to pay the processing fee when they contact the ProtectCELL customer support team at 877-775-3274.

Do I have to pay a different monthly fee if I have an Apple device?

No. All Assurance Service Program users pay the same $11 per month for first 4 lines with ASP and $7 per month for subsequent lines with ASP, which covers lost/stolen devices, physical or liquid damage to your device, and malfunction of your device, plus all of the great new benefits you receive.

If I have an Apple device, do I call Viaero’s Customer Care to report an incident with my device?

Rather than dial 611, Viaero customers who have Assurance Service on their Apple devices will call 877-775-3274 to report an incident and request a replacement. Or they can go to www.protectcell.com and request a replacement device online. 

Do I have to pay for the Assurance up front for my Apple device like I do with AppleCare+?

No lump-sum upfront payment is required. The Assurance feature charge is added to your monthly Viaero bill. You can remove the feature at any time.

How do I register my device to access the new features now available?

If you have Assurance Service already on your phone and you wish to use the new features available after 12/1/17, please do the following:
