Get Smart: New App Helps Sprint Customers Find Misplaced Phones

This post brought to you by Sprint. All opinions are 100% mine.

If you are a Sprint customer you are in luck!   Now there is a cool new App that helps to find your misplaced phone!  Available now is the Sprint Total Equipment Protection App.  I haven't upgraded to SmartPhone technology (YET) but hope to in the very near future.  The thought of losing and or damaging an expensive new phone is one of the reasons that I have been hesitant.  Now I have one less reason for worry!  With this new App, I would be covered!

The new app for Sprint Total Equipment Protection (TEP) subscribers is available for Android, Blackberry and select feature phones.  With this app, you would be able to do the following:
  • Locate phone
  • Sync contacts
  • Remote wipe phone
  • Lock phone
  • Sound alarm
If you are a Sprint TEP customer it only takes a few minutes to be up and running.  The best part is that there is no additional cost!
This app make would make life easier by reducing quite a bit frustration.  Many times I have misplaced my phone around the house, sometimes left at the office, and other times left in one of our cars or at a family members home.  Mostly due to my own absentmindedness and on occasion when our son gets his hands on it and puts it in the oddest of places!   And if it were every truly lost (or stolen) I  wouldn't have to worry about someone accessing any personal information as I would have the option to wipe the phone.  The thought of  losing all your contacts wouldn't be a concern either.
If you are a current Sprint customer you can check out and download the app but you only have until August 30 to add the feature to your existing phone. This is a limited time open enrollment so HURRY and please pass this on to your friends & family that have service with Sprint.

Sprint is holding an Open Enrollment from August 1-30, 2011. This means that as a Sprint customer, you can STILL add the Total Equipment Protection feature. To enroll or learn more visit

In addition to the new App features, TEP provides Sprint customers with a quick and convenient way to receive a replacement if their phone is ever lost, stolen, damaged or malfunctions after the warranty expires. Keep in mind water damage is included as it is summertime, this feature even covers accidental dips by your phone into the pool or lake (or the toilet)!

TEP costs $8.00 per month. 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 be discouraged with the tought of a deductible, consider this: have you ever check on the non contract price of that EVO? Well $50 or $100 sounds much better that $449! Even that LG Optimus you thought was free -- $299 is the full retail.
