    Or waiting for his entrance.
  • Lynn La 9/10/2014 8:08:49 PM
    Oh god, they're playing Lil Jon's "Turn Down for What." I get it T-Mobile, you're "hip"!
  • Roger Cheng 9/10/2014 8:09:20 PM
    The random bits of cheering from T-Mobile employees makes me think this thing is starting, but it's always a false start.
  • Cory L 9/10/2014 8:09:29 PM
    @RogerCheng like a free jump to iPhone 6 (just trade in your device no matter what you owe). statistically tmobile has the lowest iPhone user base of the 4 major carriers
  • Derol Frye 9/10/2014 8:09:46 PM
    Apple's stream may have been buggy, but at least it was on-time.
  • BB 9/10/2014 8:09:50 PM
    @RogerCheng Wonder what at&t will be offering after this event. Wish at&t offered VoWiFi The Micro Cells are a waist
  • Roger Cheng 9/10/2014 8:10:20 PM
    @BB: I believe AT&T laid out its pricing plan earlier today. Didn't see the details though.
  • Roger Cheng 9/10/2014 8:10:34 PM
    So the tagline for Uncarrier 7.0 is: This time it's personal.
  • Roger Cheng 9/10/2014 8:10:40 PM
    Let's see what the relevance is...
  • Lynn La 9/10/2014 8:10:52 PM
    The random woo-hooing makes me continually look up and around to see what's happening. But it's never anything. This is why I have trust issues.
  • Roger Cheng 9/10/2014 8:11:31 PM
    Okay, cue the hype video. The show's getting started.
  • Roger Cheng 9/10/2014 8:11:47 PM
    Here's a review of all the past Uncarrier events, which I already talked about.
  • Josh Miller 9/10/2014 8:11:52 PM
  • Roger Cheng 9/10/2014 8:12:27 PM
    I missed one: Uncarrier 3.1, or free data for tablets (if you sign up as a customer).
  • Josh Miller 9/10/2014 8:12:31 PM
  • Lynn La 9/10/2014 8:12:41 PM
    There was a quick moment in the video where the whole planet was covered in T-Mobile pink. Underneath that, a note: "Does not depict actual coverage*"
  • Roger Cheng 9/10/2014 8:12:43 PM
    Okay, we're shutting off comments once this thing gets underway.
  • Josh Miller 9/10/2014 8:12:58 PM
  • Roger Cheng 9/10/2014 8:13:06 PM
    "Welcome to 7.0" it says.
  • Roger Cheng 9/10/2014 8:13:08 PM
    Here we go.
  • Josh Miller 9/10/2014 8:13:12 PM
  • Roger Cheng 9/10/2014 8:13:18 PM
    CEO John Legere makes his entrance to loud cheers from his employees.
  • Roger Cheng 9/10/2014 8:13:39 PM
    I got a lot on my mind today, he says.
  • Josh Miller 9/10/2014 8:14:04 PM
  • Roger Cheng 9/10/2014 8:14:19 PM
    He makes a crack on AT&T's "three CEOs" who spoke at the wireless trade show in Las Vegas.
  • Josh Miller 9/10/2014 8:14:25 PM
  • Roger Cheng 9/10/2014 8:14:27 PM
    Shout out to his employees. They cheer, of course.
  • Josh Miller 9/10/2014 8:14:40 PM
  • Roger Cheng 9/10/2014 8:14:41 PM
    The Apple launch was unbelievable. I was extremely impressed, he said.
  • Roger Cheng 9/10/2014 8:14:54 PM
    What we're talking about is related to iOS 8, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 9/10/2014 8:15:09 PM
    Mentions Wi-Fi calling, VoLTE, 802.11AC.
  • Roger Cheng 9/10/2014 8:15:16 PM
    A lot of this tech has gone mainstream.
  • Roger Cheng 9/10/2014 8:15:31 PM
    I've been going nuts, he says. The things that have been said externally are blowing his mind. He calls it BS.
  • Roger Cheng 9/10/2014 8:15:47 PM
    It's a press release per minute, he says. And the people out there are buying this horse-stuff.
  • Roger Cheng 9/10/2014 8:16:02 PM
    What was the biggest growth month in T-Mobile's history, he says?
  • Josh Miller 9/10/2014 8:16:09 PM
  • Roger Cheng 9/10/2014 8:16:29 PM
    August 2014 was the company's fastest growing month. T-Mo added more customers, more gross adds than ever in the history of the company.
  • Lynn La 9/10/2014 8:16:30 PM
    Legere actually dropped the word "s--t" about three times in the last 30 seconds. No one is surprised.
  • Roger Cheng 9/10/2014 8:16:42 PM
    2.75M gross adds, he says. That's 10 percent more than the second strongest month.
  • Josh Miller 9/10/2014 8:16:52 PM
  • Roger Cheng 9/10/2014 8:16:56 PM
    1M branded postpaid adds, he says.
  • Josh Miller 9/10/2014 8:17:20 PM
  • Roger Cheng 9/10/2014 8:17:25 PM
    The month of August was the biggest postpaid net add growth in the history of this company, he says.
  • Lynn La 9/10/2014 8:17:29 PM
    Legere: There's something extremely important happening here that has to do with brand.
  • Roger Cheng 9/10/2014 8:17:40 PM
    What was the big event? It was August, he says.
