According to reports, the AIS Care+ programme allows customers to switch or replace their smartphones and tablets flexibly for any reason and at any time from the comfort of their homes. Customers can also receive doorstep delivery with a money-back guarantee that ensures they are supported in a timely manner, as little as within six hours in Bangkok. 

Both features are a first in the market for Thailand. The plan includes a "no questions asked" option for customers to exchange their current mobile device for a different brand, colour, or model. Additionally, bolttech provides a complimentary screen replacement service now bundled with the AIS Care+ plans.

The move is a bold one for bolttech, which was only launched in 2019, but already serves customers in 30 markets across North America, Asia, and Europe
