Do yourself a favor, and call Sprint and switch to TEP.
Isn't there a $100 deductible though on top of the seven dollars (I think) a month? There wasn't any deductible on Best Buy. Neither of them sound that great. Best Buy doesn't really replace your phone like they should and Sprint kinda gets you on the deductible. I think when I get my phone back I'll definitely cancel Best Buy's insurance and possibly switch to sprint's or find a good third party company that charges yearly. Or just start taking care of my phone
I never really cared about it because I knew I had insurance and I could just get a new one if anything happened but I got a wakeup call on this one. Guess I'll just have to read the fine print and other people's experiences next time! Thanks for the advice.
