While the standard warranty on Microsoft Lumia smartphones is valid for one year from the date of purchase, Microsoft does offer warranty extension options for majority of its smartphones. Extended warranty, if purchased before the original warranty expires, extends the smartphone warranty for an another year (12 months) providing a long-lasting and satisfactory user experience. Extended warranty packs are offered under the name of Microsoft Care Protect and come in 3 variations, each suiting differently priced mobile phone products.

Purchase Extended Warranty Online
You can purchase extended warranty at
Nokia’s Microsoft’s online shop at nokia.indiatimes.com. Do make sure that you purchase the plan suiting your handset model as they cannot be interchanged for one another. Once you’ve placed the order, just sit back and wait for a call from the IndiaTimes support team asking for your phone model and the IMEI number. After you’ve provided that, a warranty certificate will be generated in a few days and forwarded to your email address provided while placing the order.
If the MCP packs are not in stock at Nokia Shop, you can try searching on eBay.in as various sellers keep on listing them from time to time.
Purchase Extended Warranty Offline
If you’re not an online person, you can still purchase extended warranty by visiting the Microsoft Care Points. However, do note that not all the care centers will have extended warranty packages in stock. So, buying online is a far better option if a care center is not located close to you.
