    Hey James, what phone you using for your pics?
  • Roger Cheng 1/8/2014 8:29:07 PM
    @TurdFurgeson: James isn't using a phone; he's rocking a real camera.
  • dmitry 1/8/2014 8:29:11 PM
    only weird thing about the sprint merger is what they will do concerning cdma's lack of sim cards
  • Roger Cheng 1/8/2014 8:29:43 PM
    So there have been rumors of T-Mobile and Sprint potentially merging. Don't hold your breath for any updates on that.
  • Kent German 1/8/2014 8:30:23 PM
    @dmitry: LTE phones do use SIM cards and that's the direction all carriers are moving.
  • Turd Furgeson 1/8/2014 8:30:34 PM
    You guys rock! Keep the pics coming!
  • David Reyna 1/8/2014 8:30:40 PM
    Those Pics Have Awesome Resolution....
  • Roger Cheng 1/8/2014 8:30:42 PM
    @TurdFurgeson: Thanks!
  • Kent German 1/8/2014 8:30:56 PM
    @David: James is a pro
  • Roger Cheng 1/8/2014 8:31:05 PM
    As for the argument about incompatible network technology, that's becoming less of an issue as everyone moves to LTE.
  • Roger Cheng 1/8/2014 8:31:23 PM
    It's one reason why the T-Mobile integration of MetroPCS (CDMA/LTE) has gone relatively smoothly.
  • mjonesjr 1/8/2014 8:31:30 PM
    Any thoughts on if they will announce further LTE coverage?
  • Roger Cheng 1/8/2014 8:31:58 PM
    @mjonesjr: That's a good bet. They've often used these events to announce new markets.
  • Roger Cheng 1/8/2014 8:32:07 PM
    And T-Mobile's network guru, Neville Ray, is in the house.
  • Roger Cheng 1/8/2014 8:33:13 PM
    Okay, lights are dimming. Here we go.
  • Roger Cheng 1/8/2014 8:33:25 PM
    First up is its commercial touting international data.
  • James Martin 1/8/2014 8:33:39 PM
  • Kent German 1/8/2014 8:33:40 PM
    See everyone at the end, enjoy!
  • James Martin 1/8/2014 8:34:11 PM
  • Roger Cheng 1/8/2014 8:34:12 PM
    It's an overview of the viral campaign with "Jeremy" traveling overseas and racking up international data charges.
  • James Martin 1/8/2014 8:34:23 PM
  • James Martin 1/8/2014 8:34:37 PM
  • Roger Cheng 1/8/2014 8:35:05 PM
    T-Mobile CEO John Legere in the video now, says Jeremy got hosed like everyone else on AT&T.
  • James Martin 1/8/2014 8:35:11 PM
  • Roger Cheng 1/8/2014 8:35:29 PM
    Jeremy apparently spent nearly $75,000 in overseas data. Legere presented a giant check to an AT&T store.
  • Roger Cheng 1/8/2014 8:35:30 PM
    Ha
  • Roger Cheng 1/8/2014 8:35:45 PM
    Okay, video ends, and lots of bass plays. Rumbling sounds.
  • James Martin 1/8/2014 8:36:00 PM
  • Roger Cheng 1/8/2014 8:36:13 PM
    Another video: What a difference a year makes. Here comes the overview of T-Mobile's 2013, set to thumping rock music.
  • James Martin 1/8/2014 8:36:21 PM
  • Roger Cheng 1/8/2014 8:36:31 PM
    I'm guessing that giant check was just a big publicity stunt.
  • James Martin 1/8/2014 8:36:42 PM
  • Roger Cheng 1/8/2014 8:36:45 PM
    Sorry folks, I don't think there's video. But there is this live blog!
  • James Martin 1/8/2014 8:36:55 PM
  • Roger Cheng 1/8/2014 8:37:05 PM
    Another highlight - an aggressive build of its 4G LTE network.
  • James Martin 1/8/2014 8:37:11 PM
  • Roger Cheng 1/8/2014 8:37:16 PM
    At one point surpassing Sprint, which has lagged with its own upgrade.
  • James Martin 1/8/2014 8:37:26 PM
  • Roger Cheng 1/8/2014 8:37:29 PM
    Okay, Legere walks from the back to the stage.
  • James Martin 1/8/2014 8:37:47 PM
  • James Martin 1/8/2014 8:38:02 PM
  • Roger Cheng 1/8/2014 8:38:06 PM
    If you think AT&T wants to throw me out before, wait until after today, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 1/8/2014 8:38:19 PM
    Shout out to me!
  • James Martin 1/8/2014 8:38:36 PM
  • James Martin 1/8/2014 8:38:56 PM

    Throwing a pass to Roger
