BOSTON (BUSINESS WIRE), August 10, 2015 - Sprint (NYSE: S) is launching today its innovative Direct 2 You service in Greater Boston, including Boston, Cambridge, Quincy and Lynn. Direct 2 You includes personal device delivery and expert attention – including setup and data transfer from an old phone to a new one. Customers can arrange appointments virtually whenever and wherever they want – for free1.
Through this one-of-a-kind offering, a Sprint expert helps customers set up a Sprint mobile device and transfer any contents to the new phone. Direct 2 You eliminates the hassle of planning a trip to the store and saves time for customers by having the expert go directly to them.
“As students, faculty and staff head back to school at colleges and universities throughout Greater Boston, they can get overloaded and find it difficult to spend the time to buy a new smartphone, transfer content and apps, and get familiar with the capabilities of a new device,” said Karen Paletta, region vice president, Northeast, Sprint. “Sprint Direct 2 You brings a customized, stress-free experience to customers virtually anytime and anywhere, so they spend more time enjoying their smartphone features and less time getting it set up.”
The Direct 2 You experience is easy and simple. After a customer schedules an appointment by calling 844-347-2968 or through https://sprintdirect2you.com, an expert comes straight to him or her. In addition to setting up the phone to meet the customer’s specific preferences, the expert transfers all content, including contacts, pictures, games and apps, to ensure the device is ready to go. The expert also provides personalized training and tips to help the customer become familiar with using their new mobile device.
With today’s expansion, the service is now available in major metropolitan areas across the country, including Chicago, Dallas, Denver, Kansas City, Los Angeles, Miami, New York, San Francisco, Tampa, Washington, D.C., and surrounding areas.
