As a rule, I've always had TEP, but now I am rethinking. TEP costs 84 per year + 100 deductible I am Sprint Premier, so every year I could get an upgrade for $200 or less usually. This would be the same price as the TEP. I have backup Sprint phones that if for some reason my phone broke, I could revert to until I was eligible for upgrade. I guess my main question is - the screen separation and other potential issues with the build, would these all be covered by warranty, and if so would not having TEP hamper me in anyway in getting them resolved? (aka me having to ship it back to China or something) I'm about to buy an Evo and have been thinking about this but need help clarifying... Thanks!
