iPhone Forever Programme Providing iPhone Replacement, Repair and Upgrade
On running a rough calculation, if you were to damage your iPhone 7 by chance, then you will likely have to pay Rs 8,000 for screen replacement, Rs 5,400 for back screen replacement, Rs 2,500 for camera repair and Rs 2,500 for power button repair. Adding up all these costs will be a hefty expense for anyone. But, the good part about the iPhone Forever programme is that Idea Nirvana and Vodafone RED postpaid plan users with billing upwards of Rs 649 per month will be eligible for the iPhone Forever programme, and this will enable them to get their iPhone replaced or repair with just a service handling fee of Rs 2,000 plus GST. Further, participants of this plan will get exclusive buy-back deals for upgrading their iPhones.
Vodafone Idea has also informed that all iPhone models above iPhone 5S purchased from an authorised seller in India will be eligible for the programme. While iPhones under the 18 months will be eligible for replacing, repair and upgrade, iPhones older than 18 months will only be eligible for repair and upgrade. Further, if you decide to use this service, Vodafone Idea will facilitate doorstep pick up and delivery for your device.
