It seems that Marcelo Claure has had enough of John Legere.
Claure, the Sprint CEO, lashed out on Twitter last night after Legere, the T-Mobile CEO, called Sprint’s new “All-In” wireless plan a “swing and a miss.” The new Sprint initiative follows T-Mobile’s rollout of its JUMP on Demand smartphone upgrade program last week.
“I am so tired of your Uncarrier bullshit when you are worse than the other two carriers together,” responded Claure in the first of several tweets directed at Legere.
Claure referenced T-Mobile’s promotional offer to lease an iPhone 6 for $15/month under the new program, and said T-Mobile hasn’t adequately disclosed that the price goes up when someone exercises the option to upgrade to a new phone.
@JohnLegere I am so tired of your Uncarrier bullshit when you are worse than the other two carriers together. Your cheap misleading lease

Here’s the full text of Claure’s tweets …
I am so tired of your Uncarrier bullshit when you are worse than the other two carriers together. Your cheap misleading lease imitation is a joke. You trick people to believe that they have a 15 dollar iphone lease payment when it’s not true. You tell them they can upgrade up to 3x but you don’t tell them the price goes up to 27 dollars when they do. You say one thing but behave completely different. It’s all a fake show. So its really #Tmobilelikehell.
Legere has yet to respond on Twitter as of this morning. We’ve asked T-Mobile for comment. The company did note in a public chart last week (below) that the iPhone 6 would normally cost $27.08/month under JUMP On Demand without the promotional offer.
Update, 10 a.m.: Legere has responded.
