Hello Laurabaconhw,


  Welcome to the community!


  I'm sorry to hear you're having issues with the device protection. It's unfortunate that you did not understand how the protection works.


  The device protection only protects one device at a time. The device most recently used by the Fido SIM. If a new SIM was used in a different phone, the lost phone (ie phone with old SIM) would no longer be protected. The device protection would have transferred to that other phone (ie phone with new SIM).


  I do understand it's frustrating having to pay off a device you no longer have and is no longer protected. However, Brightstar does state that the Protected device is the eligible device which is actively registered on the Fido network and for which airtime has been logged after enrollment (see Terms & Conditions here). Your old phone would be the actively registered device. 


Hope this helps 😀
