Sprint and Asurion team up to offer mobile devices protection


Sprint and Asurion announced an open enrollment period
for Sprint’s Total Equipment Protection (TEP) handset insurance program.


Sprint TEP protects against loss; theft; damage,
including water damage; and out-of-warranty mechanical failure; by quickly
sending a replacement phone, usually overnight, re-connecting customers with
the people and places that matter most to them.


“We’re excited Sprint customers have this unique
opportunity to not only protect their investment, but to also give themselves
some peace-of-mind,” said Bettie Colombo, spokesperson for Asurion.  


“Every day we see first-hand how many ways someone
can lose or damage their mobile device a mobile device that often costs
hundreds of dollars. With Asurion and Sprint, that customer can rest easy
knowing a replacement device will be on the way,” Colombo added.


Whether a TEP customer’s phone is lost, stolen, damaged
or failing, the affordable, comprehensive Asurion-Sprint plan will often
replace the device overnight when a claim is made by 11:00PM EDT.


Other benefits of Sprint’s TEP include, protection from
high device replacement costs, fast and easy, 24x7x365 claim filing and online
tools for lost phone and data protection


The recently-enhanced TEP includes a Protection App,
allowing customers to find a misplaced phone by sounding an alarm inside the
device.  The same App includes the ability to remotely lock a missing
phone, and then use GPS technology to locate the locked phone.  


Additionally, the Protection App gives customers the
ability to automatically and wirelessly sync their contacts and transfer saved
contacts to a new phone.
