T-Mobile to AT&T and Verizon: Get Your Heads Out of...the Sand


T-Mobile US, Inc. (NASDAQ:TMUS):


Today, T-Mobile unveiled the AT&T and Verizon #HallofLame sand sculpture
at the U.S.
Sand Sculpting Challenge and Dimensional Art Exposition
, built by Archisand
Professional Sand Sculptors
. The Un-carrier is applying a little
"pier" pressure to get Verizon and AT&T to treat customers better,
calling out the carriers for charging customers tons of extra taxes and
fees, forcing them to endure frustrating phone mazes and bots when they
need help and more.

"No matter how many times I've told the carriers to listen to customers
and do what they tell you, they just won't listen – they've got their
heads in the sand, so we'll try to reach them where they're at…in the
sand," said John Legere, CEO at T-Mobile. "AT&T and Verizon, it's time
for change – stop gouging customers. Kill your phone maze. Give
customers technology for today, not relics from yester-year. It's time
to take another page from the Un-carrier book and treat your customers
like rock stars!"


The Broadway Pier and Pavilion in the Port of San Diego: 1000 North
Harbor Drive, San Diego, CA 92101.

Video and photos of the sand sculpture will also be available today on
