When you buy a new phone it comes with a limited 12-month warranty for manufacturer’s defects and malfunctions. That’s great and all, but Virgin Mobile SmartCare plans give you extra coverage so you can sleep at night knowing that you don’t need to worry if you drop your phone in a toilet. Hey... it happens.
Heads-up! Virgin Mobile Smartcare Plus and Virgin Mobile Smartcare Premium are currently not available in Manitoba and Saskatchewan.

Good to know:
For manufacturer’s defects in the first 12 months:
Head to your closest Virgin Mobile Service Lounge or call us at 1-888-999-23211-888-999-2321 to get help. We’ve got a loaner program available. A deposit and some shipping charges might apply.
To use your SmartCare Plan:
Give us a call at 1.866.213.2143. We’ll ship a replacement to you in about one-two business days, but it might be up to 10 days if you live in a rural area. Shipping charges might apply.
We’ll try our best to send you the same make and model you’ve already got. We might send you a like-new phone or data stick of the same or a comparable model. Because of this, we can’t guarantee that the colour, features or accessory compatibility will be the same. If you use a SIM card with your device and you take it out to use with another device, the second device doesn’t become covered by SmartCare.
The best time to sign up for SmartCare is when you activate or upgrade to a new phone. Alternatively you can come back to Virgin Mobile store within 30 days of signing up with us and add SmartCare. We just need to make sure your phone isn’t already broken as previously damaged or defective phones aren’t eligible for SmartCare.
Heads-up! Before SmartCare covers your phone, you’ll need to make at least one phone call or use at least 1 KB of data. SmartCare isn’t available on Prepaid Plans and doesn’t cover SIM cards, batteries, chargers or any other accessories.
