If it were not for the replacement coverage, I would say it is a waste of money. Warning everyone: install another application to locate your phone. The TEP (at least for me) can only get within a diameter of 3k meters for its location on the network. A diameter of almost 2 miles! That really doesnt help much. Cant hear it ring that far Sprint. No reason it cant get to within 30 to 50 feet. Yet another item Sprint sucks at and misrepresents. Thank God I installed android device manager AND where's my droid so I can track it. Otherwise I would be up a creek.
