This is the biggest crock of shit I’ve ever heard in my entire life. Do you have any idea how much you’re paying?
T-Mobile CEO John Legere at an event today where he unveiled the iPhone on his network (FINALLY) as well as the company’s “un-carrier” plans.
It seems that Legere was full of good quotes — “Stop the bullshit" being another. And while I think this is a smart approach to take in an age where almost all Americans hate their carriers, I still find it a little odd that Legere went on and on about the end of subsidies and contracts then offered up his phones with a sort of newfangled subsidy (pay $20 a month until the phone is paid off — plus your contract, of course).
I mean, I get it, you have to pay for the very expensive phone somehow, and most people aren’t going to pay for it all upfront (even if it does save them money in the long run), I just think the messaging here is a little muddled.
Also, I think we all recognize that T-Mobile would be just fine with the status quo if they weren’t in fourth place in the carrier race… Still, again, a smart thing for T-Mobile to try.
