Rogers Wireless has introduced an interesting new perk for customers of selected wireless devices called the Handset Protection Guarantee program.

Available at no additional cost, the program offers customers whose devices have been lost, stolen or broken a discount toward repair or a subsidized replacement device on their first out-of-warranty occurrence.

The company says the protection program applies to eligible devices which includes most new wireless phones, smartphones, Blackberry's and Internet sticks.

In the event of a lost or stolen device, Rogers says it will offer customers a discount toward the purchase of a new or refurbished replacement device. In the event of a broken device, users will have the option of buying a replacement at a discounted price or have it repaired at a subsidized cost.

Rogers says will also offer the option of a free replacement device if the customer extends the length of their wireless contract by at least 12 months.
