John Legere is not only famous for turning T-Mobile around from that infamous carrier that almost gout acquired by AT&T, but also because he’s very verbal about it. He’s well known for going off at competitors publicly for mistreating customers with plans and contracts, and his main tool for these complaints is Twitter. Legere decided to tweet about Sprint’s disappointments in its recent ad campaign, and it seems people got tired of it.
It’s extremely uncommon for any CEO to respond to negative comments about any company, and specially respond to tweets from John Legere, but Marcelo Claure, Sprint’s CEO clearly got tired of remaining silent. As a response, Claure decided to call out John Legere’s Uncarrier service as BS, in addition to claiming that T-Mobile’s services are worse than most other competitors combined. He even goes as far as to calling T-Mobile’s Uncarrier service a misleading lease at the end. The responses extend to three additional tweets claiming how T-Mobile misleads customers to believing that smartphone installments are as low as $15, and end up being $27 at the end.
These tweets seem to fall better at TMZ than here, but it’s not a bad idea to make sure you’re getting the right deal when acquiring a T-Mobile service. Claure’s arguments aren’t at all lost in accuracy, so buyers beware.
@JohnLegere I am so tired of your Uncarrier bullshit when you are worse than the other two carriers together. Your cheap misleading lease
