T-Mobile USA CEO tweets ‘I don’t know what I’d do without my Samsung Note 3’ – from his Apple iPhone 5s

“T-Mobile chief executive John Legere intended to use Twitter to direct attention to Samsung Mobile’s latest Note 3 phablet, but inadvertently did so via his new iPhone 5s, joining a list of major figures who have made the same mistake,” Daniel Eran Dilger reports for AppleInsider.

Legere tweeted ‘Glad @SamsungMobile decided to bring phablets to the states. I don’t know what I’d do without my #Note3!’ The tweet attached a link to a story explaining how Samsung ‘conquered the ‘phablet’ market,'” Dilger reports. “It also noted that it had been sent via Twitter for iPhone, metadata that is attached automatically. Notified of that, Legere responded within minutes, ‘oops. I carry both as you may know! That was funny.'”

Dilger reports, “He then followed up with a photo (below) of a gold iPhone 5s alongside a Note 3 and a Galaxy Gear watch, indicating that Samsung’s big screen phablet isn’t a suitable replacement for a standard sized phone, even when paired with the company’s new wrist-attached $299 Bluetooth headset.”

MacDailyNews Take: Oh, look, Johnny claims to wear the world’s most horribly reviewed stupidwatch. How fitting.

Dilger reports, “Sending promotional tweets about other products from Apple’s iOS devices seems to be quite popular. Last year, Oprah Winfrey used an iPad to send out tweets endorsing Microsoft’s Surface, using the hashtag ‘#FavoriteThings’ to say she had bought a dozen of them for Christmas gifts. After BlackBerry paid Alicia Keys to serve as its Creative Director, she sent a personal tweet from her iPhone in February, then removed it and claimed her account had been “hacked.””

MacDailyNews Take: People who promote convicted patent infringer and Apple knockoff peddler Samsung’s poorly assembled plastic junk using their Apple products are missing the irony gene, among others.

Hey, John, if you can get this data through one of the 12 operational towers you have in the USA: By allowing you to carry iPhones, Apple saved your failing outfit thereby keeping your stupid ass employed.

Don’t ever forget it, ingrate.

  1. Hey, MacDailyNews:

    T-Mobile needs Apple… and Apple needs T-Mobile. What would Apple do without carriers such as (put names here)? Nobody rescued anyone. It’s business strategy. That said, this stupid CEO is a shame.

    1. apple does not need T-mobile

      from churn rates any carrier in USA that doesn’t carry iPhone will die.
      At the start nobody wanted iPhone except AT&T. Verizon was tops at the time and didn’t believe it needed the iPhone but with iPhone AT&T kept stealing it’s customers . so Verizon (remember it’s CEO said originally he was happy with his Android strategy, spending 100 million to promote the Droid etc ) had to CAVE IN to Apple’s demands.
      Today 50% of Verizon , At&T sales comes from iPhone.

      without iPhone T mobile would be dead in few years.

      1. Oh, yeah. Give the whole piece of cake to Android then. It seems to me you forget easily or you don’t know the whole history. Transport yourself to the years when At&T was the only carrier for iPhone due to a seemingly never ending exclusive contract between Apple and such carrier. Android was eating Apple’s cake share happily thanks to that contract. If At&T were still the only carrier for iPhone… things would be very hard for Apple to make iPhone prevail.

        1. check your own history dude:

          apple was raking in BILLIONS and BILLIONS (from a start of Zero). apple knew that Verizon and the rest would cave.

          “Android was eating Apple’s cake share happily thanks to that contract. ”

          what market share was Apple losing? . Android was only eating the market share of BB, Win Phones, Symbian etc. If iPhone was on NOT on Verizon etc and they shifted to android what market share can iPhone lose (when they are not on those carriers?) Get that? you can’t ‘lose market share’ when you’re not on them.

          When iPhone was on only AT&T, subscribers were defecting from Verizon to go there to get iPhones. Units of iPhones sold have increased every year, Go check your own facts dude. Today iPhone in USA matches or outsells ALL the other smart phones put together.

  2. the CEO’s biggest regret about the whole mess is that now he is FORCED to use his Samsung at least part of the time as people are watching him …

    (that is punishment enough).

    You can probably see him mumbling to himself as he struggles with his Note : “f..king piece of %$&&* !”

  3. This is actually good. It’s a huge slap in the face for Samsung Army of Drones…what an embarrassment for them knowing that most favorable words about Samsung from people is PAYOLA! haha
