Sprint Refreshes Its Insurance Program, Changes Name to Sprint Complete
Sprint today relaunched its device insurance program with the goal of making the service more useful. Sprint has dropped the former name (Sprint Total Equipment Protection) and renamed the service Sprint Complete. The insurance provides for $29 cracked screen repairs on Apple and Android devices. It includes unlimited storage, for backing up photos and videos, through the Complete Storage app. Sprint Complete provides password protection and online password management tools, such as protecting and/or restoring your identity. Sprint Complete will replace lost or stolen devices, sometimes as quickly as the next day. Last, Sprint Complete provides subscribers with access to live tech experts at some 450 Sprint stores and 260 Apple stores. Customers can even schedule in-home consultations. The monthly cost ranges from $9 to $19, based on the device being insured. Sprint customers can sign up within 30 days of purchasing or upgrading their device.
