Attention Monster Hunters: Sprint and Boost Mobile Stores Become ‘Must Stop’ Location for Pokémon Go Players

Gamers can visit Sprint stores across the country to take advantage of Lures, free charging stations and on-site Pokémon Go experts

Unlike some of the other carriers, Sprint offers unlimited data at a fair price so you don’t have to worry about using data while Playing Pokémon Go

And…watch out for other carrier’s gimmicks that promise free data for a limited period of time

OVERLAND PARK, Kan. (BUSINESS WIRE), July 14, 2016 - Starting tomorrow millions of Pokémon Go players are invited to visit neighborhood Sprint (NYSE: S) and Boost Mobile retail store locations around the country for help in stepping up their monster search. Sprint stores will have lures to attract monsters that players can capture. For the closest store locations visit www.sprint.com/store and www.boostmobile.com/store.

Additionally, gamers can take advantage of free charging stations and knowledgeable on-site Pokémon Go experts that can help beginners learn the game or more advanced hunters with strategy and location of nearby Gyms and PokéStops.

“We welcome Pokémon Go players to visit their local Sprint and Boost Mobile stores to capture some of the monsters in town,” said Roger Sole, Sprint chief marketing officer. “Our knowledgeable staff will help you download the game on your phone, explain how it’s played, locate PokéStops in the area and even provide a power up for your device so game players can continue their adventures fully charged.”

Sole added: “Since the game launched just nine days ago, we’ve seen its meteoric rise with millions of our customers across the country playing on the Sprint network – often simultaneously -- including in our more than 200 LTE Plus markets. Of course, customers can enjoy the benefit of our unlimited data plans, so they can play without the worry of overage charges as they continue their Pokémon Go adventures. We also want to remind gamers to play responsibly while hunting monsters: be aware of their surroundings and never play while driving.”
