Now, GSM Nation customers in the United States will be able to purchase SquareTrade coverage to safeguard their unlocked devices against damage. SquareTrade protects consumer electronics and appliances from malfunctions, accidental damage, and life's frequent mishaps: Americans have spent more than $13 billion replacing and repairing damaged smartphones.
