Imagine yourself at the pool with your friends, swimming and playing. At some point you hear an incoming call on your phone and while trying to answer, you drop the handset in the water. In the best-case scenario, the phone will start to function after completely dried, but what can you do if it never recovers and you lose all the data stored in it, including hundreds of contacts, your favorite music and videos or photos you recorded recently, which you didn’t have the chance yet to transfer to your computer? Wouldn’t it be great to have some support from your mobile carrier to help you recover your phone? Well, you’d be in luck if you’re with Sprint.
Until recently, having complete protection for your device and the possibility to find it if lost or block if stolen, was available only for laptops. If you are a Sprint customer who owns a phone loaded with important data such as a large number of media files and contacts, you can rely on the Total Equipment Protection service, and if you already are a Sprint TEP subscriber, you have until the end of the month to download the great new application that enables complete protection wherever you are.
The Total Equipment Protection app was designed to help you locate your handset if lost somewhere near, based on an audible alarm, as well as lock the handset or wipe data remotely, in case you are sure the phone was stolen and you can’t reach it. This way, you can make sure the stealer won’t get access to your private information. In addition, the new app allows you to synchronize, manage and restore contacts, as well as locate the phone on the map based on the GPS technology. The good news is that the application is available for download at no additional cost, for TEP subscribers, but until August 30.
More than that, Sprint launched the Open Enrollment program for all of you who didn’t opt for the TEP service within the 30 days of activating the phone. Like the TEP app, this is a limited time offer that ends on August 30. This means that besides the cool app features that allow you to quickly find your handset or control it remotely, you will get a replacement phone if it is ever lost, damaged, malfunctioning or stolen, even after the expiration date of the warranty.
If you hurry up, you can get all these benefits for only $8 per month, using the Sprint Total Equipment Protection App
