It’s safe to say that Sprint and T-Mobile aren’t anywhere close to merging because T-Mobile CEO John Legere has been absolutely teeing off on Sprint’s new offer to pay off new subscribers’ early termination fees. On his Twitter account Friday, Legere regularly bashed Sprint’s newest “Framily plan” initiative and took particular exception to Sprint’s decision to have its new promotion to pay off customer ETFs last only through May 8th, whereas T-Mobile’s offer to pay off new customers’ ETFs is set to last indefinitely.
“Hey Sprint — paying off ETFs to get people to switch is a great idea (I should know),” Legere wrote. “But for just a couple of weeks? That’s frucked up.”
Legere also made fun of Sprint’s latest ad that features a talking gerbil extolling the virtues of Sprint’s “Framily plans” and said that the “biggest joke about Sprint’s offer” is that “once you sign up, you’re in same position as the Framily gerbil” that’s trapped inside a fish bowl.
T-Mobile shook up the wireless industry earlier this year when it announced that it would pay off ETFs for any customers that switched over from rival carriers, a move that sent AT&T into a panic and forced it to offer a similar deal to any T-Mobile subscribers who wanted to switch.Tags:Sprint, T-MobileSource:Twitter (John Legere) Previous ArticlePrevious5-year-old discovers huge Xbox One security vulnerabilityNext ArticleNextVideo: Galaxy S5 and iPhone 5s square off in fingerprint scanner battle TrendingU.S. wireless carriers finally have something to fear: GoogleHTC One (M8) vs. Galaxy S5 vs. iPhone 5s: Guess which phone survives a 7-foot dropThank you, Google, for being so ‘evil’Most sophisticated Android malware yet has already infected millionsAfter one week of sales, the HTC One (M8) might already be in troubleThis cool trick could have a huge impact on your Android phone’s battery lifeRelated ArticlesT-Mobile CEO pens open letter to BlackBerry fans: 'I'll always fight for you'New poll shows why T-Mobile is scaring every other carrier to deathNew report gives key details on Google's plan to become your wireless carrierT-Mobile backtracks on latest Uncarrier move following subscriber backlashBeggars can be choosers: BlackBerry dumps T-Mobile following spat
