Frequently Asked Questions


1. What equipment of mine does this cover?

This support service covers all Zebra/Motorola mobile computers, data captures and wireless products.

2. Does this simply replace my existing contract(s) that I have, or does this establish a new service contract?

Zebra will continue to honor current contracts up to the point of contract expiration date. Upon reaching their renewal date, customers will renew their Bronze, Gold or Advanced Exchange contracts to the Essential or Select level of service. However, if a customer decides to move to the Essential or Select offer before their contract expires, the existing contract will be updated and invoiced with any additional cost if applicable.

3. When does this go into effect?

June 8, 2015

4. What do I need to do – do I need to sign or authorize anything?

You will not need to sign or authorize anything until you either purchase or renew your service support contract.
