  • Roger Cheng 1/8/2014 8:54:46 PM
    Uncarrier 2.0 - Anytime upgrade. It got a lot of response, mostly negative.

    So now for Uncarrier 4.0: keep eliminating pain points.
  • Roger Cheng 1/8/2014 8:56:14 PM
    All the disruption in the world doesn't matter without the network to back it up, he says.
