Asurion today announced it will provide its over-the-air Content Protection service to MetroPCS customers. Here is more info:
Asurion's Content Protection handset application allows subscribers to configure automated contact backup options, ensuring that data is backed up automatically - over the air - on a regular basis. Subscribers may also initiate manual backups from their handset or the Content Protection website.
The easiest way to transfer contact information to a replacement or upgraded phone. Since the service stores a copy of the phone?s address book in secure servers, when customers lose or damage their phone ? or simply upgrade their handset to the latest model ? they can restore their contacts to their new handset in a snap with the Content Protection service.
The Content Protection service runs on Asurion?s next-generation Mobile Solutions Platform (MSP 2.0), which introduces key new features for wireless carriers and subscribers, including address book groups and sharing, shared photo and video albums, a rich web experience, and seamless integration into social networks and photo sharing sites. In addition, MSP 2.0?s carrier-grade standards-based architecture provides carriers with the flexibility they desire and the high performance and reliability they require. The architecture enables Asurion and wireless carriers to customize the application and roll out additional features to their subscribers.
