What Does Sprint Complete Insurance Cover?
Sprint Complete is a Sprint phone insurance plan that covers your phone in case of any damage or loss. But you have to take note that like other insurance plans, you will have to pay a deductible fee in case of a repair or replacement.
A deductible fee is an amount that you will have to pay for a service before your insurance plan can take effect. The Sprint Complete deductible fees will vary depending on your phone model and what service you need.
To give you a complete breakdown of what Sprint Complete covers, we have listed down the features included in a Sprint Complete plan, as well as the deductible fee if applicable.
1. Next-Day Replacement for Lost or Stolen Phones
Losing your phone or having it stolen can be a scary thought. With most of our personal and business activities tied up to our mobile phones, being without a mobile device can be stressful.
If you have a Sprint Complete plan, this provides next-day phone replacement for lost or stolen devices, so you can quickly receive a new device once your original one is verified missing.

How long does a phone repair take? Most in-store repairs are completed the same day as long as they do not require extensive work and aren't too urgent. In most situations, mail-in repairs from an authorized repair facility are returned within 5 business days.
3. $29 Cracked Screen Repair Fee
Does Sprint insurance cover cracked screens? The answer is yes. Having a Sprint Complete plan allows you to have your cracked screen repaired for a flat fee of $29 (all tiers).
You have to take note, however, that there are device models that are not eligible for Sprint Complete's cracked screen repair service including Motorola, Sonim, ZTE, Essential, Kyocera, and other older models.
Screen repair is also not available for the first 60 days after release if you have a new Apple, Samsung, LG, or HTC phone. After 60 days, these phone models are then eligible for the $29 fee.

A Sprint Complete plan provides you with unlimited storage for photos and videos. The Sprint Complete Storage feature allows you to have an automatic and high-resolution backup of all your media files.

What is the difference between AppleCare+ and Sprint Complete with Apple Care?
AppleCare+ is a warranty program you directly buy from Apple, while Sprint Complete with AppleCare+ is an insurance plan you buy from Sprint.
For the latest and flagship IPhone like IPhone 13 Pro and IPhone 13 Pro Max, AppleCare+ with loss and theft protection costs $269 for two years or $13.49 a month.
If you sign up for Sprint Complete, the cost of the highest tier per month (Tier 5) which these phones will fall under is $19 per month. If you have an IPhone, it may be cheaper to get AppleCare+ directly from Apple.However, the advantage of Sprint Complete is that it also offers some extra features that you might find beneficial.
Is Sprint Complete Worth It?
The answer to the question whether Sprint Complete is worth it depends on the phone that you buy and how long you want coverage for. If you buy a new phone, especially an expensive one at that, getting an insurance plan isn't a bad idea.
Sprint Complete allows you to cover your phone for damages, loss, and theft. There are also other features that might come in handy like unlimited cloud storage, tech support, and password management tools.
For example, if you bought an IPhone 12 Pro at $999 and the phone was stolen. You only have to pay a $149 deductible fee to have your phone replaced. The remaining $850 will be covered by insurance, which is equivalent to around 44 monthly payments if you are on Sprint Complete Tier 5.
If you cracked your screen without insurance, the cost of replacing an IPhone 12 Pro screen is $279. With insurance, you only need to pay a flat fee of $29 so you save $250 (roughly equivalent to 13 months of insurance payments).
This means that if you damage or lose your phone in the first year of ownership, you are essentially saving more money.
So is Sprint Complete worth it? Yes because protecting your phone with insurance can give you the peace of mind you need and save you from all the hassle in case your device breaks, gets stolen, or lost.
