(Ed. Note – What the hell Sprint? Gadsden, AL, but no mention of Phoenix? We have 4G LTE capable iPhones out here in the desert. I put it in my saddlebag every time I saddle up my horse to round up a posse. Sheesh!)

Also, 9to5Mac notes that Sprint will be offering its TEP insurance plans to iPhone users beginning January 25th. The $11 monthly plan will give you access to all of Sprint’s regular TEP coverage, which is a combination of its Equipment Replacement Program and Equipment Service & Repair Program.

Just like AppleCare+, you’ll have 30 days to add the coverage to your device. Unlike AppleCare+, the plan also subjects you to a non-refundable deductible per claim ranging from $150 to $200. (AppleCare+ costs $99 up front, with no monthly fee, and a $49 service fee if you make a damage claim. It’s up to you to decide the better value…)
