Dissatisfied T-Mobile customer destroys a retail store, gets taken downtown

Dissatisfied T-Mobile customer destroys a retail store, gets taken downtown
What do you do in case you are not satisfied with your wireless carrier's service? Most of us would discuss the issue over the phone or in person at a retail store, but some bloke in Manchester, England, took the matter to the next level. Needless to say, it did not end up well for him.

We don't really know what caused this man to wreak havoc at a T-Mobile UK retail store, but he must have had his reasons. Over the course of several minutes, he destroys whatever is on display, and even uses a fire extinguisher to cause some extra damage. Towards the end of this video, captured by a witness, you will see him being handcuffed by the police and taken downtown.

What do you think his motives were? Feel free to make a guess by dropping a comment below.

He is right if tmo-uk overcharged him big. In the US, the big thieves like Apple and ATT should be treated by the qiuet US consumers in this way. (I mean the fire extinguisher part is not good, but those BS advertisments should be taken down) This way will bring the US Department of Justice really start to work on the unlawful things done by these two monster giants.

My carrier is probably ten times worse than his so if I pulled off something similar it would be on a much larger scale.

I salute this guy. I'm only sorry that this happened in a Tmo store and not in an Apple store..

There also wouldn't be much to tear up. Apple purposely makes their stores as minimal as possbile, unfortunately.

Maybe he wasn't happy with several free high end phone they give in UK compared the $200 here in US.

He looks like a complete moron destroying the store. He was probably a prepaid customer upset he couldn't get a free replacement SGSIII that he smashed that morning in a fit of rage after his wife burned his porridge.

This sounds funny and all, but sadly, it doesn't always have a happy ending. Some guy went bat-crazy around my local area and ended up dead. Thankfully there was an off-duty officer in the store who handled the situation or there would have been more losses - http://www.wktv.com/news/local/95032689.html

maybe he found out that his nokia lumia phones is not getting the wp8 upgrade and felt he got screwed just like how nokia is feeling right now from windows.

Maybe he's checking how strong the store was? That's explains the pulling of the connection cables.
