According to a few hot rumours that surfaced the Internet recently, Sprint is "in the process" of changing the iPhone warranty.
We've spotted some pieces of information on the Sprint Feed and rushed with the good news to the iPhone owners. Apparently, the carrier plans to offer the subscribers a viable alternative to AppleCare+. Apple's service should be added in the first month after the purchase, otherwise the customers remain with their delicate iPhones uncovered by Apple's service.
Currently, Sprint offers Total Equipment Protection coverage for iPhone owners who, for the $8 monthly fee, cover their phones for mechanical as well as accidental damage, loss or theft. There is still no information about how much the TEP policy will change for the benefit of iPhone users, or how much the new insurance will cost. We don't even know how advanced Sprint is in developing this service, all we know is that the carrier "is in the process of bringing their Total Equipment Protection (TEP) coverage to the iPhone."
The good news is that Sprint's alternative insurance programme can be added at a later date. With the new TEP, the iPhone owners who opted out AppleCare+ have a second chance to insure their pricey devices.
