If you accidentally broke your HTC One M9 or HTC One M8, the manufacturer will replace them with a brand new handset at no cost because of their latest ‘Uh Oh Protection’ Program
HTC One M9 is one of the upcoming Android smartphones set to release this year. It may not be as famous as the Samsung Galaxy S6 or the Sony Xperia Z4 when it comes to the brand name but one thing is for sure though, when it comes to specs, this phone can certainly go head-to-head against the top contenders in the Android OS category, as you can see on this specs report from Tech Radar.
On this article however, we won?t be talking about the phone?s specifications, instead, we will talk about HTC?s program for the One M9 smartphone, the ?Uh-Oh Protection? program.
HTC One M9 ?Uh Oh Protection? program, what is it?
The concept of this program is pretty simple, when you accidentally drop your phone and crack your screen, HTC will replace your old phone with a brand new one in just 24 hours or so, according to the explanation made by recode.
The process is pretty simple, call their HTC office and a customer representative will take the phone?s IMEI number to make sure it is your first time using the program. Once they have confirmed it, you will receive your brand new HTC One M9 phone within 24 hours. However, if you think that ?looks like getting another phone for free is possible with this program? then you are gravely mistaken. Along with the phone is an envelope where you will put your old One M9 smartphone inside it and deliver it back to HTC. For security purposes, they will ask for your credit card number and hold onto it until they receive your old phone?pretty smart if you ask me.
They will replace your phone, no questions asked but you can only use this once, so use it wisely. I know it?s tempting to just throw your new phone because there?s another one waiting for you but please, save it for the real accident.
