Update: Sources are reporting that while Sprint will close the merger on Friday, there will be no changes until 9/2/05. On the night of 9/1, Sprint and Nextel will revamp their stores and will begin the advertising campaign to coordinate with the 9/2 “Day 1” date. This will give Sprint and Nextel time to add the ability to access each other’s customer databases so that Sprint customers can be serviced in a Nextel Store, and likewise, Nextel customers in a Sprint Store.
Sprint has announced that this Friday they intend to close the Sprint Nextel merger. The following Monday, the combined company’s stock will carry the ticker symbol S.
