T-Mobile's CEO John Legere is gaining quite the notoriety for being a bad-ass CEO. This week he crashed AT&T's CES party here in Vegas... and got kicked out. Seriously, he does the kind of stuff that I would do if I were a CEO. Crazy guy. Gotta love it.

That said, he's taking to the stage shortly to talk T-Mobile, carriers and other good stuff, and we have members of the Mobile Nations team there to witness it and report it back here live. Tune into the action below. The show starts at 12:30pm PT, 3:30pm ET, 8:30pm GMT. Given his recent past performances, he's sure to say something that will cause a stir.

Kev - If this guy is so "bad ass", maybe, he will have the cojones to carry the Z30 in TMob stores or, at least, online..... Why don't you ask him....

CB from the Z30

Exactly.

Well said, my friend! Put the BlackBerries back in the stores & let people experience the awesomeness of BB10.
With that said though, BlackBerry has got to put the pedal to the metal to market & advertise their products to the people & make them seek out & demand that the products be available in the stores. It would help also to lower the pricing when ordering direct from BlackBerry.

10.2 came out for the Z10 Christmas Eve. It's already available.

Hopefully it won't be too long for 10.2.1.

Jim Wolfson

"Badass" would be timely releases of OS10 updates in the USA.

Nothing since July.

If you are in the U.S. and cost is important to you, T-Mobile is the only way to go! You get Moore than what you pay for IMO.

Jim Wolfson

That's true; it's a pretty good deal and TMo is the only one with WiFi Calling.

The_Dark_Knight_Forever

T-Mobile isn't perfect but what in this world is (except for Eva Longoria...LOL). T-Mobile offers the best pricing for the services & is the only one to give us Wi-Fi calling. My loyalty stays with T-Mo even if I'm still waiting for my OS update.
AT&T is threatened by T-Mo. That's why they made that desperate switch from T-Mobile offer recently.

Jim Wolfson

TMo > Longoria, who's just another Hollywood balloonhead with a good body that ages daily.

There are thousands of those.

shiszil

Wifi calling is a definitive plus for those of of us deep inside concrete cages. +1 on that as well!

I want to know when AT&T will be giving us the 10.2.0.xxxx updates.

10.2 upgrade for my Q10:PLEASE!

Posted via CB10

Ukemochi

Just use a leak, I have no idea why people don't use them instead of waiting for an update. It's. Not going to change, carriers will always be behind so stop complaining. Use BlackBerry Link and back up your phone and success. There's even instructions on how to do it, god forbid you have to learn something.

Posted via CB10

The_Dark_Knight_Forever

You need to take it easy & word your posts a bit more respectfully. Some people don't want unofficial leaked crap on their phones that may not run everything they want properly. Your comment is offensive. I don't install leaks but that doesn't mean I have a problem learning something or that I'm lazy either as your comment implies.
The carriers should just get their acts together & release the updates as soon as they become available. It's poor customer service & then they tell people they have no release date for it. These official updates are tested & approved by the creator...in our case BlackBerry. There's no reason the carriers need to sit on them until they get their bloatware added into the update.

Jim Wolfson

I started installing leaks in spring the week after I got my Z10, so I bothered to learn something.

I stopped installing leaks the moment TMo released WiFi Calling for the Z10.
NONE of the leaks support WiFi Calling, so I don't install any more leaks.

We want the real thing from TMo - 10.2.1 with WiFi Calling.

The_Dark_Knight_Forever

Thanks for sharing! That's exactly my point!

Usually leaks don't include wifi calling, something that can be important if you are on T-Mobile. Do I load a leak, or do I continue to use a service that gives me phone coverage in more places?

BBRRYISBAC

Yeah Kev let's rally the troops and get TMO to get the Z30! I mean the Z10 is fine but I need TMO to at least offer the Z30 online!

Wolf35Nine

hey any info about the sprint tmobile merger rumor?

The_Dark_Knight_Forever

Yes, Kevin. Ask him about that rumor. T-Mobile would be insane to go through with such crap.

Posted with my BlackBerry Q10 via CB10.

Jim Wolfson

He pretty much dodged that question, saying something to the effect (my perception) that "if we're acquired, we'll have more resources, more spectrum and we'll stay the same gang of usurpers."

Problem is, NO company stays the same after acquisition, and they may very get acquired to be squashed.

The_Dark_Knight_Forever

I don't think acquisition will happen. T-Mobile has got too much excitement stirred up & momentum to sell out to anyone. They will be the #1 carrier soon enough. The only thing is that they need to offer more phone choices & I'd personally like to see them totally commit to BlackBerry like Sprint once did.

Posted with my BlackBerry Q10 via CB10.

Xopher

I like what they are doing with service plans. Today's new is good, but probably something that was expected (especially after AT&T jumped to announce their plan last week). I'm guessing AT&T already knew this was coming.

Their data plan makes me wish my PlayBook was the 4G version.

JoBudden

When you have crappy cell service you kinda need wi-fi calling eh?

Not really.
