Sprint extends TEP open enrollment through September for HTC EVO users


Have you been meaning to add Total Equipment Protection to your HTC EVO 4G or EVO 3D, but missed the 30-day window after you purchased your phone? Were you happy to see that Sprint decided to have open enrollment in August, but you subsequently forgot to have it added on?

Lucky for you, Sprint has decided to extend open enrollment in Total Equipment Protection until the end of September. You can sign up using the link below, online at, or by calling customer service.

I have previously mentioned that I usually prefer to take my chances, and have never opted for carrier-provided phone insurance. It just doesn't make much sense for me: I baby my phones, always keep them protected in cases, and don't take them to places where they are likely to be stolen. Additionally, I've usually moved on to the next latest and greatest device by the time the one-year manufacturer's warranty has expired.

For others, like my partner who is notoriously hard on phones, $8/month plus a $100 deductible isn't such a bad deal. One of my favorite stories involves a freak rainstorm in the middle of a Heart Blondie concert (I wasn't there, so I forgot which concert this was). Needless to say, the phone never quite worked right after that.

In any case, if you've been meaning to add this to your account, now is the time, as Sprint is unlikely to offer this again anytime soon.
