OVERLAND PARK, Kan.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–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

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.”
