T-Mobile CEO John Legere loves to entice customers with attractive pricing, launch new initiatives which sparks the wireless industry to move in a positive direction for customers and troll his competitors, often with reckless abandon. But for all his bravado, it takes a lot of capital to fix one of T-Mobile’s biggest problems — inadequate nationwide service coverage compared to larger rivals (namely, Verizon Wireless and AT&T). T-Mobile is fighting that problem head on with the release of its new 4G LTE CellSpot. The CellSpot is your own miniature low-power LTE tower — it measures just 8.5”... Read more...
T-Mobile has really been knocking it out of the park this year, and it's reaping great rewards for the company. This past fall, the company leapfrogged Sprint to become the third-largest US wireless carrier, and given the company's momentum, things are only going to improve. While it's hard to argue that T-Mo's network isn't as wide-reaching as AT&T's and Verizon's, the company is sure doing everything it can to help smooth that over until the situation improves. Networks aside, T-Mobile seems to be the most "fun" of all the major carriers, thanks to the company's outspoken and hilarious CEO,... Read more...
T-Mobile CEO John Legere is a master troller. The man takes pleasure in ripping on his larger competitors — Verizon Wireless and AT&T — and to a lesser extent, fourth place wireless carrier Sprint. Earlier this week Legere got a taste of his own medicine after his attempts to troll Verizon results in a swift response that left Legere attempting to laugh off the sick burn. Legere is back at again today, taking direct aim at his three wireless competitors in a three-part video series called “The Scarriers.” In each of the videos, Legere is sitting around a campfire with a group of bewildered...

T-Mobile CEO John Legere T-Mobile CEO John Legere is no stranger to the limelight. He is a heavy user of Twitter (he has 1.74 million followers) and he absolutely loves to throw daggers at the competition — especially America’s two largest wireless carriers: Verizon Wireless and AT&T. But no matter how much Legere ribs the competition, they rarely engage him to trade insults so it’s often a one-way street (with the exception of a tiny spat with Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure). However, that all changed this morning when Legere retweeted the following image out to his followers in an attempt to mock... Read more...

T-Mobile boss John Legere is a bit of a rock star among CEOs in the social media space, so it's only fitting that we see him jam out to When We Were Young by The Killers on Twitter. What's trippy, though, is that he's plucking away at a game controller and not a real instrument in order to promote the Guitar Hero Live bundle for iOS. Guitar Hero Live is the newest installment in the popular Guitar Hero series published by Activision, and it's available to purchase at T-Mobile. It's the only mobile wireless provider selling the Guitar Hero Live for iOS bundle and yes, you can finance it just as... Read more...
T-Mobile CEO John Legere is ticked off and with good reason. Experian, which just so happens to process credit applications for T-Mobile, reported today that it was hit with a massive database breach. Experian describes the incident as an “unauthorized acquisition of information from a server” that contained “some personally identifiable information for approximately 15 million [T-Mobile] customers.” So what information were these “unauthorized” people able to obtain? Well according to Experian, personally identifiable information including names, date of birth, and social security numbers were... Read more...
When T-Mobile CEO John Legere isn’t unloading profanity-laced tirades or needling the competition at every turn, his company actually more often than not actually introduces compelling promotions for customers and new technology features that take full advantage of today’s high-end smartphones. Such is the case today; T-Mobile has announced a follow-up to its Advanced Messaging initiative that kicked off in July. T-Mobile Video Calling takes full advantage of the third-place wireless carrier’s Voice over LTE (VoLTE) network to provide native video calling from person-to-person. T-Mobile Video Calling...

Perhaps it says something about my smart aleck personality, but I continue to enjoy T-Mobile CEO John Legere's antics. Admittedly his brand of humor is an acquired taste, one that's detestable if you're on the receiving end, as evidenced by a Twitter spat between Legere and Sprint boss Marcelo Claure.earlier this summer. But it isn't Sprint that Legere is targeting, not today anyway, but Verizon and it's new logo.Verizon introduced its new logo on Wednesday. It's a simple logo -- Verizon's name with a red checkmark at the end -- and it's supposed to represent a "revitalized purpose of delivering... Read more...
T-Mobile's outspoken CEO John Legere has never minced words when addressing the competition and he's been known to ruffle some feathers on occasion (you can ask Sprint boss Marcelo Claure about that). However, his latest Internet tirade isn't directed at Sprint or Verizon or AT&T, it's at a minority of customers who have been "stealing data" from T-Mobile through unauthorized tethering. When customers purchase T-Mobile's unlimited 4G LTE plan for their smartphones, they receive a fixed amount of LTE for tethering at no extra cost. Legere frames the offering as a courtesy for those times when... Read more...
T-Mobile has been going on a tear in recent months, introducing new promotions aimed at not only keeping exiting customers, but also courting new customers to its newly cemented third-place position in the U.S. wireless carrier market. In the past two months alone, the company announced Jump On Demand, which allows smartphone customers to upgrade at any time, and a promotion allowing customers that purchase a new iPhone to receive a free upgrade to a brand new iPhone 6S in September. Not to be left out, Sprint is unveiling its own in-your-face smartphone promotion with “iPhone Forever.” For a cost... Read more...
Earlier this week, we brought you news that Samsung made good on its promise to slash prices on the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge following a disappointing quarter. Those first price cuts hit Europe, and now the price slashing spree has spread to the United States one week ahead of Samsung’s big “Unpacked” event. T-Mobile is the first U.S. carrier to take the plunge, cutting prices on both the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. On the Galaxy S6 front, prices have been dropped by a modest $100 each for the 32GB and 64GB models. That means that you’ll be able to grab the smartphone off-contract for $579.99... Read more...
T-Mobile CEO John Legere has been promising that this day would come for about a year now. But now that Sprint has released its latest earnings report, which details its total number of wireless subscribers, Legere can finally pop open the champagne and celebrate capturing… a distant third place behind Verizon Wireless and AT&T. Sprint revealed for its first fiscal quarter of 2015 that it ended with 56.8 million total subscribers. T-Mobile, on the other hand, ended its Q2 2015 with 58.9 million subscribers. It’s a difference of roughly 2 million subscribers, but that’s good enough for bragging... Read more...
With as fast as new smartphones come out, it's a scary proposition to consider purchasing the latest and greatest months after its launch. After all, it's not as though prices immediately begin to go into a decline; they stay locked in right up to the launch of the next model. T-Mobile understands what this frustration can feel like, so it's offering iPhone fans one sweet deal. Via a humorous and straight-forward YouTube video, T-Mobile CEO John Legere tells us why his company's latest deal is worth paying attention to, and he's got a good point. It's no secret that a new iPhone is en route, so... Read more...
