I remember my first phone purchase a long, long time ago. It was a first-generation colored cellphone (yes, yes, I lived through the days when cellphone displays were – gasp! – black and white! or shades of grey.). It could take photos! It could play polyphonic ringtones! Joy!!!
Six months later I misplaced it. I think I left it in one of the stores downtown, as I was trying on new garments I must have forgotten it somewhere. I remembered that it wasn’t with me only minutes later but by that time it was too late, I tried to call my number but the phone had been turned off, and my first big purchase after college went down the drain.
My first panic was – my photos!!! Yes I had some – ummm – “private” moments – stored on that phone. That was the time of grainy scandals being Bluetooth-ed or even infrared-ed from one phone to another. And some were even being uploaded to the Internet. Yikes!!!
None of the photos I took resurfaced though. Haha – what did you think?! They weren’t really scandalous, so… Good thing, yeah??
Now if I only the Sprint TEP had been available to me that time…! What’s that, you ask??
The Sprint Total Equipment Protection App is an application that can locate your phone (if you’ve misplaced it), sync contacts (especially useful for me when I’ve got both a private and an office phone!), remote wipe all data off your phone (if – knock on wood – it gets stolen), lock your phone and even sound an alarm!
So useful! And it’s compatible with Android, Blackberry and select feature phones.
If you’re already a Sprint TEP customer, you can get the app for free! But act fast, because the offer is only up to the 30th of August.
Here’s the promo for Sprint TEP. Cute, eh?
If you’re a Sprint customer and not yet enrolled in TEP, plus it’s less than 30 days since activating your phone, you can add the Sprint TEP feature, available from August 1-30, 2011. View it as insurance! If your phone ever gets lost, stolen or damaged – hey you get a replacement, easy! You never know – it’s summer – you love the water – you love your phone, it’s only a matter of time. :-)
TEP is $8.00 per month, but the Protection App is free. If you need to file a claim, a deductible of $50 or $100 is required. Hey, I didn’t say you’d get a free phone! :-) To learn more, visit www.tepenroll.com.
