Sprint Intros Total Equipment Protection Plus
Sprint today rolled out an enhanced version of its handset insurance program. The new program, called Total Equipment Protection Plus offers to insure not only the handset, but the contents of the handset as well. The device insurance is provided by Asurion and protects against loss, theft, damage, and device malfunction. The expanded service can be used to automatically backup and secure on-device data, such as photos, contacts, videos, and settings. TEP Plus will also use monitoring and optimization tools to improve battery life and performance, as well as apply antivirus and malware tools to protect against intrusive or harmful apps. The service can remotely find, lock, or erase a missing device, and provide one-click access to a live tech support representative for instant help with problems. Total Equipment Protection Plus is compatible with the iPhone and Android devices (4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich and up). Customers can upgrade to the new service or stay with their existing service. Total Equipment Protection Plus costs $13 per month.
