As T-Mobile’s CEO John Legere prepares for the company’s Uncarrier 4.0 event on Wednesday as part of CES 2014, he has been on a virtual rampage of sorts generating all kinds of press related to his spat with AT&T. The latest bit of news comes courtesy AT&T’s developer party being held to cap off their conference in conjunction with CES 2014. Legere showed up with an entourage, including T-Mobile CFO Braxton Carter, to check out the party at which Macklemore and Ryan Lewis were scheduled to perform. “Crashing” the party may be too strong a word as Legere and company did show up with tickets and were allowed in with no problem.
Shortly after arriving though, Legere ran into CNET reporter Roger Cheng who tweeted out a picture of the two. A few minutes after that, security showed up to bounce Legere’s group from the festivities. It is entirely possible Legere would have been asked to leave even if he had not had the fateful run-in with Cheng, but that tweet certainly seems to have hastened things a bit. In the end though, it seems like AT&T may have played into Legere’s hand as he was able to capitalize on the stunt via Twitter and continue to press on AT&T while building interest in T-Mobile’s Uncarrier 4.0 event.
