With so many people having just received a new phone over the holidays, you’re probably not ready to part with it just yet. Before you head out to ring in the New Year, make sure your device is protected with mobile protection from Asurion. Because somewhere between the champagne toasts, that unexpected kiss at midnight, and the big ball drop– odds are your phone won’t make it out alive.
