    Just saw this in a local news blurb. Verizon is now offering "in-home" phone repair services under a “Total Mobile Protection” insurance plan available in 34 states. Would you pony up $11/month for this service?

    Verizon will now come to your house to fix your broken phone screen

    I prefer the thought of taking my phone in somewhere to have the screen replaced. I don't like strangers in my home.

    I can see how this may be useful to some folks. Two claims per year is a nice feature. I would not use it for this reason. Give Verizon $11 a month for something that I may never use, plus a $79 deductible if the service is needed? That's $211 for a new screen, and not too shabby. But, I would rather keep that $ each month and only spend it when I need a new screen. Like I just did for my wife's phone. $199 broken screen fee + $25 to have a new Moto Z Play shipped to my house within 4 days with a prepaid return box. I paid $225 for her new phone to replace a cracked screen, but if she never breaks another screen that's $11 a month in my bank account and not in Verizon's account.

    Yeah, by that math, I would've been better off paying out right for Huawei to replace my screen on my 6P like I did.
