I inherited the “phone-losing gene” from my father. I don’t know anyone who has bought more phones than my Dad – not because of a desire to keep up with the Joneses, but just because he leaves his phone in stores, restaurants, probably on top of his car a time or two.
Fortunately, I haven’t mastered the Disappearing Phone Act as well as my Dad has; I usually just lose it under a pillow or the couch cushions. And nine times out of ten, I lose it after I’ve been to a movie or a doctor’s appointment and haven’t turned the ringer back on.
If you are a Sprint customer and happen to have the phone-losing gene, there is hope. For $8 a month, you can subscribe to Sprint’s Total Equipment Protection plan and can get the Sprint Total Equipment Protection App currently available for Android, Blackberry and select feature phones. The program is in limited enrollment right now.
If you lose your phone, the app allows you to remotely:
1) Locate phone
2) Sync contacts
3) Remote wipe phone
4) Lock phone
5) Sound alarm
Sprint TEP customers can be up and running in just a few minutes at no additional cost!

Can you imagine losing your phone and having the same protection that is available for your bank cards and other sensitive information? This just might be the plan for you.
