John Legere - the hero Wireless deserves, but not the one it needs right now
posted by Luis D. / Feb 28, 2014, 9:40 AM
John Legere is a riot, but it seems that we went an entire week without the man making headlines! Understandably, we felt worried, so we took off to his social media profiles to check if he's alive and well. It turns out that not only is Mr. Legere fine and dandy, but his output on Instagram and Twitter is a rock & roll show! Some of it is comedy gold. Some of it is so down-to-earth, you wouldn't believe that this man runs a billion-dollar business.
Get a load of John's recent antics that went under the media's noses:

Get a job, besides in the long run your bill would actually be cheaper and you will save money in your pocket.... Subsidies were a f******king scam

Well, that's Verizon's fault (or scam?) for not reducing the price when people buy the phone at full price. AT&T, however, does reduce the monthly rate if you buy the phone at full price. I've checked.

I agree bills are the same price .... Actually pay more a month now with the purchase of a full price monthly payment ...

not really. I cut my bill in half on Sprint thanks to Framily, and this happened thanks to John Legere, as I doubt Sprint would have introduced this plan if not for T-mobile doing its new plans and ETF buyouts. Sure, unlimited data is gone for me now, but I never was a data heavy user anyway, and when I do, I usually have wifi.

If you think you are saving money on the Framily plan I got a bridge in Brooklyn to sell you. Once you add in phone pricing you pay more per 2 years! But everyone loves no contract. This is the biggest bill of goods ever sold.

Seriously man wow! You will pay less overtime and Tmob does offer a monthly payment plan very similar to subsidized plans, they just broke them down to make it very flexible for anybody. Just uncarrier yourself already and get it with Tmob! :D

I bet you were not very good at math either.... My price before the new plan 100.00, then I purchase a subsidized phone 200.00. At the end of 2 years...that is $2600 to your carrier. My price after phone payment plan and same data plan (unlimited with 2.5gb of hotspot), is now 87. That means every month is 13 into my pocket. Which means, I saved $312.

Legere shakes the industry up, and does what the consumer wants. This is good for the industry because with out the consumer there is no industry. The industry so far as raked the consumer over the coals even while making big profits. The only thing John may hurt is the greedy investors and highly paid CEO's that can never get enough. When You say he is not the one the industry needs right now that is a matter of opinion. His unorthodox ways is just what the industry needs right now!

The title is a play on the words Jim Gordon says at the end of "The Dark Knight" about Batman: "Because he's the hero Gotham deserves, but not the one we need right now," since, you know, Legere is Batman.

I absolutely love what I have seen of this guy in the media. I bet he is an absolute Riot to work for, and honestly America and the world could use more people like him in positions of power in major corporations.

Sprint users who demand unlimited data and jump on framily will indeed pay much more by financing the phone. It's not even close. Over $300 for 4 phones financed with unlimited data. That's absurd. Old plan was $210 with subsidy. Sprint is sodomizing existing customers who are there for unlimited data.
