How to Cancel Sprint Phone Insurance

There are a number of ways to contact Sprint to cancel your smartphone protection plan.

On the Internet

The easiest method to cancel a Sprint-issued smartphone insurance plan is to visit the company’s web portal. To do this, however, you will have to have created a “My Sprint” account, which can be done by visiting Sprint.com or by calling 1-866-275-1411. Once you have a “My Sprint” account, click on “Contact Us” and look for the “Chat With Us” tab. You may have to wait a few minutes to reach a live agent, but once you do simply tell them that you wish to cancel your Sprint mobile phone insurance plan. The cancellation should begin immediately, though you should be on the lookout for a confirmation email.

Press “4” for other options. Press “5” for other options. Press “6” for other options. Enter your pin. When you finally speak to an agent, ask to cancel your insurance plan.

Suppose you are after a claim, you can also talk to representatives through the phone to help you understand how to make a successful mobile phone insurance claim. As a warning, the customer service phone number for Sprint can change from time to time, so you may want to perform a Google search before attempting to contact them.

Head to a Sprint Store

Canceling a Sprint mobile insurance plan can be done in person if a retail location is in your neighborhood. Simply head to the closest Sprint retail location and ask to speak to an employee. Tell the representative that you wish to cancel one of your Sprint insurance plans and they should be able to help. If your phone is damaged, the store representatives may also take you through the process of how to repair the phone. This employee may try to dissuade you from cancellation, so be prepared to hold your ground.
