Update 2nd April 2020 13:27 GMT: OnePlus decided to offer insurance extension and to launch a loaner phone service in a few countries.
Similarly to warranty extension announced last week, OnePlus decided to extend phones insurance to May 31st if it was going to expire between March 1 and May 30.
Loaner phone service is now available on a limited, trial basis in Canada, United Kingdom, United States and the Netherlands.
Before handing your device to repair center, OnePlus will ship you a loaner phone first so that you can backup your data. Mind you will have to give them a deposit which they will keep if you don't give them back the device after your unit is repaired.
