- The Sprint brand will officially go away on August 2, 2020.
- On that date, all Sprint stores and content will be unified under the T-Mobile brand name.
- Sprint officially was purchased by T-Mobile earlier this year.
It’s almost time to say “Goodbye” to one of the biggest brand names in the mobile phone industry. Today, T-Mobile confirmed that on August 2, 2020, it will officially unify its operations until the T-Mobile brand name. That means August 2 will see the Sprint brand disappear.
This move was expected to happen sometime this summer, after the nearly two year struggle to merge T-Mobile and Sprint finally happened April 1. T-Mobile has already laid off hundreds of former Sprint employees, and has also disabled Sprint’s 5G network ahead of the August 2 date.
In a press release, T-Mobile stated most of Sprint’s retail store locations will be rebranded as T-Mobile stores. It also hinted at new deals that will be officially announced next week. The Sprint brand removal was buried in an announcement that mostly promoted T-Mobile’s new efforts at combating robocalls and phone scams for its customers.
