Google Pixel charging port repair options and costs
Here’s how much you can expect to pay for Pixel charging port repair.
Warranty repair: $0
If your Pixel is still covered by Google’s standard one-year warranty, you might be able to get your charging port repaired for free.
The warranty covers manufacturer defects, but if your charging port was accidentally damaged you’ll need to pay for repair.
|Phone Insurance: Worth it or waste of money?|
Google Preferred Care: $29 to $129
If you have Google Preferred Care (you need to purchase it with a new Pixel), your mail-in repair deductible will be between $79 and $129. Take it to a Google-authorized UBreakIFix location and you’ll get a $50 discount, so you could get your charging port repaired for as little as $29.
That doesn’t include the cost of Google Preferred Care at sign-up, which is $89 for Pixel 3a and 3a XL phones and $129 for Pixel 3 and Pixel 3 XL models.
Carrier insurance: $65 to $199
Verizon Total Mobile protection costs $15 per month and has a $199 deductible for all Pixel 3a and Pixel 3 charging port repairs.

Sprint Complete costs $15 per month and deductibles vary by phone: $65 for the Pixel 3a and Pixel 3a XL, $115 for the Pixel 3 and $140 for the Pixel 3 XL.
T-Mobile Protection 360 costs $12 per month for Pixel 3a models and $14 per month for Pixel 3 models. All Pixel 3a and Pixel 3 models have $99 deductibles.
|T-Mobile Phone Insurance: What it covers, what it doesn’t|
AT&T doesn’t sell Google Pixel phones, so it doesn’t offer insurance.
If you make a carrier insurance claim, you might receive a replacement or refurbished phone rather than your original Google Pixel.
