Say a Final Goodbye to Sprint At T-Mobile Is Reportedly Shutting it Down




, ,

Sprint is closing all retail stores and concluding its lengthy run as a telecommunications provider, founded in 1899 in Kansas by Cleyson Brown. Sprint started offering wireless services in 1995 and was never able to quite keep up with the times or other emerging competitors. Nearly a century of being a leading telecommunications service went the way of the Dodo after the wireless craze swept the nation.

T-Mobile merged with Spring on April 1st, 2020, and has been chiseling away at Sprint products and services ever since. The plan was always to envelop Sprint’s customers into the T-Mobile brand and now the final stages have been scheduled. T-Mobile announced back in March of 2023 it was also acquiring Mint Mobile, eliminating more competition for the “Uncarrier” while increasing its user base. Now Sprint is reportedly finally coming to an end, according to The Mobile Report.

First, T-Mobile started automatically switching Sprint customers to its own plans, then started offering deals and payments to switch to its SIM cards. Last year, T-Mobile began eliminating Sprint devices and systems from underperforming retail locations in addition to discontinuing Sprint’s 3G CDMA network. This past April, Sprint SIM cards were disabled.

Starting May 26th, stores will eliminate systems employees use to order products for in-store pickups and existing orders will need to be picked up by June 9th. All orders placed after May 26th will be marked ship to home.

June 10th marks another store shutdown milestone, ending all in-store transactions other than express payments, returns, and picking up existing orders. June 25th is scheduled as the final day for any type of in-store Sprint transactions. Everything after that date will be conducted via the Sprint app which is also scheduled to shut down.

Customers who are still somehow using Sprint SIM cards have limited time left to fully switch to T-Mobile or another mobile provider.
