Nana had a little phone mishap a few months ago.  Her phone was missing.  Her NEW phone was lost.  It was nowhere to be found.  That is until it resurfaced in with the clean and recently washed clothes in the washing machine.  Yep, Nana’s phone was washed.  It was clean, but it was also dead.  She was not very pleased, as you can imagine.  She had to purchase a new phone.  Her contact information?  Potentially lost as well.  Luckily she was able to have this information retrieved.  But that too could have been lost just like her phone. 

The one sure way to save yourself from these little “mishaps” is to enroll in Sprint’s Total Equipment Protection. Nana’s need for a new phone would have been covered under this plan.  What does the Total Equipment Protection provide?

  • Comprehensive coverage for most issues
  • Protection from high replacement costs
  • Fast and easy, 7×24 claim filing
  • Free, next day replacement delivery
  • Online tools for lost phone & data protection

Normally you only have 30 days to enroll in this service after activating your phone, but for a limited time (August 1-30, 2011)  Sprint is hosting open enrollment.  This means any Sprint customer can add the Total Equipment Protection feature. Total Equipment Protection or TEP is $8 a month and includes a new app for Android, Blackberry and select feature phones that can:

1) Locate phone
2) Sync contacts
3) Remote wipe phone
4) Lock phone
5) Sound alarm
Sprint TEP customers can be up and running in just a few minutes at no additional cost!

Sprint Total Equipment Protection App allows you to find your phone when you can’t locate it.  This is a handy feature for me.  I’m ashamed to admit that I “lose” my phone on a regular basis.  With three little boys to keep track of sometimes my little cell phone gets lost in the mix.  The new app would have this problem covered!

The Protection App included with TEP with no added cost provides the ability to find a misplaced phone with an audible alarm, locate your phone on a map using network integrated GPS technology, remotely lock a missing phone, as well as wirelessly sync and manage and restore your contacts. Should a customer need to file a claim a deductible of either $50 or $100 is required for approved claims. While some people might think the deductible is a bummer, have you ever check on the non contract price of that EVO –$449. Or even that LG Optimus you thought was free — $299 is the full retail.

Check out this video for more particulars. 

To enroll or learn more visit Current Sprint customers should hurry, you only have till August 30th to add the feature to your existing phone.

How would have this app help you?
