BASKING RIDGE, NJ (WCMH) – Verizon will now show up at your house to fix your broken smartphone screen.

With the new service, customers with a broken phone screen can bring the phone to a local service center or request a ‘house call’ from a Verizon technician. Verizon says that the same-day house call service is available at locations in 34 states.

Austin is on the list.

Phones eligible for same-day repairs include:

  • Apple iPhone SE, 5c, 5s, 6, 6 Plus, 6s, and 6s Plus
  • Samsung Galaxy S5, S6, and S7
  • Samsung Galaxy Note 4 and 5
  • Motorola DROID Turbo and DROID Maxx

The new service is one of the improvements that Verizon announced to its $11 per month “Total Mobile Protection” insurance plan. Verizon is holding an open enrollment period for the plan starting Feb. 9 and ending on April 9.

In addition to the monthly fee, fixing a cracked screen will cost you a $79 deductible.

The company is also increasing the number of claims allowed per year from two to three.
