Legere could put BlackBerry back in T-Mobile stores after hearing complaints from 'Berry fans
posted by Alan F. / Feb 16, 2014, 7:10 PM
If there is one thing we learned over the last year, it is that T-Mobile CEO John Legere is pro-consumer. When BlackBerry owners and fans complained about the mailer to the executive, he immediately took action. In a tweet, the executive wrote "BlackBerry users, I'm hearing you loud and clear. Let me work with the team and get back to you." Can you think of one executive in any industry that would respond to a matter like this so quickly? BlackBerry fans quietly wait to see if T-Mobile will bring back the Canadian manufacturer's handsets to its stores.
And the famous Legerian wit was displayed once again. When someone following the thread wrote back to Legere, "Was it hard to hear us with your head all the way up apples @ss?," the CEO answered "actually no, the acoustics up there are pretty good :). I heard you."
With Sprint Chairman Masayoshi Son and Sprint CEO Dan Hesse still thinking about what to do about a possible acquisition of T-Mobile, there are many hoping that a deal does not materialize, fearing that Legere would be forced out of the executive suite of a combined Sprint-T-Mobile.

Well someone in marketing obviously screwed up. You don't call out one of your suppliers (BlackBerry), no matter how small, as being inferior to another vendor's (Apple) product. It looks like BlackBerry's CEO wasn't too happy about the promo either, as he publically commented on the issue. I like what TMO is doing but some of the things Legere does are ridiculous and unprofessional for any company employee, not to mention a CEO. He's trying too hard now.

You can bring the berry devices after you approve the GDR3 update for Nokia lumia 820.

Perhaps you mean L810? The L820 was the international and AT&T version. The L822 was the Verizon exclusive. The L810 was the T-Mobile, non-LTE version that T-Mobile yanked off the shelves in a matter of months. I think that is the one T-Mobile doesn't want to deal with, as the L521 and the L925 are their LTE-capable WP8's.

Blackberry 10 may be good but the fact that it only has 10 apps doesn't make it appealing.

BB10 is an excellent OS. Pure fun. If BB can get their ducks in a row and decide what kind of company vision they intend to have, they could get this off the ground. As far as T-Mobile, they really do not need to change much, except maybe offer the Q10 or even Q5 and just say "oops". No harm, no foul. Kind of reminds me when Sprint used the HTC Arrive- their only WP7 device- in an add pushing upgrades from "outdated" devices. It pictured the Arrive as the old device, vines growing over it. Immediately, the Arrive owners attacked, sending emails galoor to Sprint. A couple days later, they had the image replaced with a feature phone (an LG Lotus, if memory serves). It doesn't take many consumers to make a PR problem, and usually these companies will do anything to avoid or solve PR problems. Bully for BlackBerry fans in this case.

I actually enjoyed the Z10 that I had for a few days but I returned it when it looked like Blackberry was about to go the way of the dodo bird and got a Galaxy S4. BB10 is really a good OS. Just wish it had some apps.

Nice Liberals here loving bs10. Some Americans seem to think America is the world. 0% American share espspecially cos of igoatism. Other parts of the world still enjoy BB. Watch what I say..... John Chen will bounce BB back.
