Whether it's using GPS while traveling for a family vacation, responding to an e-mail from work, or getting play-by-play updates on your favorite sports team, mobile devices are essential to our daily lives, be it a smartphone, tablet or laptop. Many of us rarely go more than a few minutes without checking our devices. So when the unexpected happens and your device is lost, stolen, damaged, or needs technical support, you need a backup plan.

At AT&T, we're now offering even more flexibility to our current Mobile Insurance line-up. Beginning May 23, we're introducing AT&T Multi-Device Protection Pack for $29.99 a month,* which expands your device protection options even further. Once you select a primary device (a device connected to the AT&T wireless network with a post-paid monthly service), you will be able to add two additional eligible devices, which may be either connected or non-connected .** The additional two devices, which can be tablets, laptops or smartphones , can be added at any time after your AT&T Multi-Device Protection Pack purchase ( claims for non-connected devices cannot be made until 30 days after MDPP enrollment ). The option is yours. AT&T is the first wireless carrier to offer coverage on non-connected devices. For a list of eligible devices, visit www.att.com/mdpp.

AT&T Multi-Device Protection Pack combines a variety of services to protect your can't-live-without-it devices:   Replace it + : AT&T Multi-Device Insurance replaces or repairs devices that are lost, stolen, damaged or are experiencing mechanical or electrical failure after the manufacturer's warranty has expired.

You can also allow expert technicians to remotely and securely access and control your device to help manage your needs .   Locate it +++ : With one click, the AT&T Mobile Locate app allows you to GPS locate, lock, wipe, or sound an alarm on your lost or stolen eligible device.
