Marcelo Claure is not the man to mess around with in the wireless industry. Why? Because he will directly call bullshit on you. That is exactly what Sprint’s CEO did to John Legere of T-Mobile following the latter’s tactics becoming all too much to handle.
— John Legere (@JohnLegere) July 2, 2015
On Wednesday evening, Legere took a jab at Sprint because of its recent All-In flub that required some changes. In addition to tweeting that the carrier had swung and missed with its new plan, Legere linked to an article from Re/code that highlights disappointment with Sprint.
Claure was not happy.
The Sprint CEO, who is among the highest paid compared to his competitors, launched a series of tweets replying to Legere, claiming that T-Mobile’s new JUMP! On Demand program is a ripoff. Claure says that the program is a trap and Legere’s company has failed to inform consumers that continuously upgrading raises the monthly price. T-Mobile’s business practices, according to Claure, is a “fake show.” The best part from Claure’s tweets comes down to a single word: bullshit. He was so fed up in his very first tweet that he told Legere that T-Mobile’s Un-carrier tactics are “bullshit.”
For those of you unable to keep track of the conversation’s reverse layout, we have organized Claure’s brief rant:
“I am so tired of your Uncarrier bullshit when you are worse than the other two carriers together. Your cheap misleading lease imitation is a joke. You trick people to believe that they have a 15 dollar iphone lease payment when it’s not true. You tell them they can upgrade up to 3x but you don’t tell them the price goes up to 27 dollars when they do. You say one thing but behave completely different. It’s all a fake show. So its really #Tmobilelikehell”
Legere has yet to issue a response to Claure but that will not remain for long. We are guaranteed to see him say or do something over the top to get back at Claure’s frustration becoming apparent.
All I have left to say is that #Tmobilelikehell does not roll off the tongue as well as #sprintlikehell.
