It looks like T-Mobile’s edgy CEO John Legere isn’t the only man in his position with a loose tongue. Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure seems to have had a nerve stricken by Legere as a result of the Magenta man calling Sprint’s new All-In plans a “swing and a miss.”
And it wasn’t some politically correct PR drivel, either: Claure replied directly to Legere on Twitter with the following series of Tweets (combined for purposes of formatting):
@JohnLegere 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.
End potentially-childish spat. John Legere has yet to reply to Claure’s spirited rant, though we imagine a response isn’t far off, and we’re sure the CEO won’t hold back when he does.
Whether Claure’s words are true are up to your own view of things. We certainly won’t bash him for his thoughts considering he probably knows better than anyone.
But we do know that the state of the American wireless industry was painfully stale and anti-consumer until T-Mobile’s Un-Carrier moves started, and that’s worth a whole lot more than an 80 word rant on how big of a meanie T-Mobile is for doing it.
