During several presentations last week at CES , T- mobile CEO Legere continuously spouted some of the most profane language out there. Then sez how he wants to help families with his pricing. He wants to help himself and his foul mouth is an awful example for those of us that care about some sense of decency in public discourse.
Why wait for the (combined) rush ? .. didn't you know TMUS will 'buy out' your current contract now.... and 'lots & lots' of GOOD luck when you switch back to that (combined) TMUS/Sprint
Summary of MarketWatch article about how the $450 offer to TMUS customers to go with T is not a great deal at all.
Firstly, customers have to trade in a relatively high-quality phone to get the full $250 device credit
Secondly, you could get more for that same phone in the secondary market.
Thirdly, for the $200 credit, customers must forgo a device subsidy to get the $200. “The subsidy on an iPhone is certainly more than $200”
So really, when you understand the offer, T is really screwing every customer who takes it. You could get more than the $250 trade-in allowance if you sell your phone yourself. To get the $200 service credit you give up a subsidy worth around $400 or more.
(Sunday Funny's) .. Can someone explain what Boston215 is talking about (?) Click his I.D., posted on pg. 5 of his mssg's titled .. "T will be at least $45 within 12 mos."... posted time Jan.16th @ 2:33 p.m.
I realize he's trying to prove himself a 'stock expert' with a Flea Market Crystal Ball, but he sure is confusing .. (or dumb as a doorknob :-) !!
(disclaimer) I'm posting as echo 2L65 - not 'echo2165' ...
.... his other posts are quite laughable too ...
You'll get it, though maybe not as fast as you like, patience. Way over valued here, based on buyout which will never happen at this level.
Legere is reckless and scary. He is out to destroy a great American industry because of his vendetta against AT&T. Anytime someone is so focused on destruction , its a worrisome thing for all in his realm.......... friends and foes alike.
Again, either you are lazy with your research or you are trying to push an opinionated agenda. There is a search engine called google + wikipedia (although I will not vouch for the 100% accuracy of wikipedia). Here are the facts:
* Gary Winnick, founder and chairman from 1997-2002. Also, cashed in $400+ million and stock.
* John Scanlon, CEO from 1998-99
* Robert Annunziata, CEO from 1999-2000
* Leo Hindery, CEO from 2000
* Thomas Casey, CEO from 2000-2001
* John Legere, CEO from 2001-2011
* SEC investigation finalizes in 2005 with 3 executives paying small civil fines: Thomas Casey (CEO), Dan Cohrs (CFO) and Joseph Perrone (VP of Finance). There is "chatter" about lobbying help reducing the fines / criminal penalties
* Legere is the dude who managed the company from bankruptcy to getting bought out by Level 3 for $1.9 billion
Looks like we wait and see how well this will turns out.More power to Gen Legere and his strategists.I will be saluting him should this operation is a success.
great price. Poor service and coverage. Just depends if you want to talk on your phone or not.
Yes, you do. Exactly how much funding is Softbank providing Sprint with? Go ahead, make up a number. And how's that network buildout going? How many POPs has Sprint added since they were acquired?
No, that's what enterprise value means. $30 billion cash for DT + $20 billion in refinance of debt.
Feel free to download financial statements from the tmobile investor relations website. Adjusted EBITA is around $5 billion a year.
