Perez Hilton gets behind T-Mobile’s #NeverSettleforVerizon campaign

After last week’s social networking setback, you’d forgive T-Mobile for backing out of its #NeverSettleforVerizon promotion. And with any ordinary wireless operator, that would be expected. But this is T-Mobile and John Legere we’re talking about here. When has this new, improved Uncarrier ever backed out of anything (unless it’s upsetting lots of customers)? Instead of dialing it back, John tweeted out a short video … [read full article]

John Legere promises to send message competition can’t ignore if petition reaches 250k signatures

Around a year ago, T-Mobile announced during one of its Uncarrier events that it was ending overages. No more charges outside of the plan for anyone subscribed to the magenta carrier. You may remember at the time he created a petition on Change.org so that consumers could get involved and try to abolish overages. It may have been something of a publicity stunt, but … [read full article]

In case you missed it, somehow – John Legere and Donald Trump battle it out on Twitter

We all know John Legere takes no prisoners on social media. He tweets what he wants, when he wants and will quite happily antagonise his competition. But you can be sure he will never criticize his own customers. In fact, when it comes to CEOs on Twitter, there aren’t many that measure up to John’s engagement with his company’s subscribers. So, when Donald Trump decided to call out John for T-Mobile’s “terrible” service, … [read full article]

T-Mobile gives CEO John Legere a raise and extends his term of employment

There’s no question that T-Mobile had itself a pretty successful 2014, adding a total of 8.3 million new subscribers, expanding its MetroPCS prepaid brand, and rolling out LTE, Wideband LTE, and 700MHz spectrum. As a result of T-Mo’s big 2014, the carrier has given CEO John Legere a raise. A Securities and Exchange Commission filing reveals that T-Mobile has amended John … [read full article]

Net Neutrality rules shouldn’t impact T-Mobile’s Music Freedom offer

It wasn’t long ago that the FCC finally announced what American consumers nationwide wanted to hear: Internet was being re-classified and net neutrality is coming in. At least, that’s the plan. Once classed as a utility under Title II, internet – both mobile and fixed line – will be open and competitive and big corporations won’t be able to pay ISPs a premium … [read full article]

John Legere: AWS-3 spectrum auction a “disaster for American wireless customers”

It’s been a few weeks now since the government’s AWS-3 spectrum auction ended, and by all accounts, T-Mobile played its cards perfectly. It spent almost $1.8 billion on mid-range spectrum which it can use to bolster its already-strong portfolio of 1700/2100 airwaves. But all-in-all, the whole affair was a big pile of baloney according to T-Mobile’s outspoken CEO. … [read full article]

Mike Sievert being promoted to COO in T-Mobile executive re-shuffle

In an email sent out to all T-Mobile employees this morning, John Legere outlined a corporate re-shuffle taking place at the Un-carrier.

His responsibilities will include guiding … [read full article]

Legere: “We are not an underdog brand”

Its growth and popularity since starting Uncarrier have been incredible. And many will put this boldness and success down to one person: John Legere. More often than not, tech reporters will come away from a T-Mobile press event with comments on the chief’s style and choice of language. … [read full article]

John Legere finally gets a reaction from Sprint CEO on Twitter

John Legere likes to berate the competition, quite publicly, on Twitter. And during the Superbowl event yesterday evening he took time to aim his jibes at Sprint’s commercials. Something which the CEO himself has said he does to try and get a response. This time he got one. Sort of. Half-assed commercial, half-assed data speeds. #typical @sprint. #SprintLikeHell — John Legere (@JohnLegere) February 2, 2015[read full article]
