Hey wassup. This is Jahmal Abbott. Thanks for tuning in. I want to talk to you today about Sprint and T-Mobile. And that name that you just heard leading off first with Sprint, that's going to go away.
Sprint Brand Retirement Details
So starting on August 2, the Sprint brand as we know it will be going away completely. So that's right. The Sprint brand name is going away completely as T-Mobile will be switching over to representing T-Mobile with no more Sprint.
So what does that mean if you're currently a Sprint customer?
Well, that yellow logo, that name that you become familiar with the the website that you've been going to to get your Sprint service updates and things of that nature that is going away completely, and it's going to be under one unified brand under T-Mobile.
So on August 2, that's when T-Mobile will be turning Sprint stores into T-Mobile stores. They'll also be revamping some things with some pricing, and as well as introducing more of that T-Mobile flavor that you're used to seeing nationwide with the commercials and the with the social media updates, but the Sprint brand as you know it is going bye completely.
And just what we talked about in previous episodes, your service, as you know it, what isn't going to be cut off.
And coverage wise, with being a T-Mobile customer and a Sprint customer, with those two networks combined together, you actually get a better footprint, better coverage and as a result, better reliability because of the fact that you're using both of those networks.
So changes coming with Sprint, you don't have to worry about your plan not working, you don't have to worry about the prices going up because T-Mobile has committed to not changing prices for current customers at least for the first couple years.
But just know that Sprint name, the website that you're used to going to all that stuff is going away completely as it transitions over to T-Mobile.
So more to come as we watch this and see how this transpires but just know that Sprint is going away and T-Mobile is here to stay as a stronger brand that we're all going to get used to and accustomed to from here on out. So August 2 is the date.
