    Default It is sprint.

    What does this sentence mean? "It is sprint"

    My friend and I are planning on going to a mobile phone store, for some information about our phones, which is not far away from our place, like 7 minutes drive. And she told me it was sprint. I have no clue that what that means?

    Thanks,

    not a teacher

    The phrase was more likely to be: "It's a sprint".
    A "sprint" is a short race or period of running, cycling, driving etc, at a fast speed.

    Thanks,
    The context of your sentence indicates you and your friend are going to visit a store that sells Sprint mobile products and services. It is not an Apple store. It is a Sprint store.

    In situations such as this, the easiest solution is to ask your friend what she meant.
