AT&T hospitality — Gate-crash!
Okay, we get that AT&T and T-Mobile aren’t the best of friends these days. T-Mobile offers to pay early-termination fees for customers who switch from other carriers; AT&T responds by offering its own incentive for existing T-Mobile customers to abandon their plans.
Still, why not take the opportunity to bury the hatchet at CES, maybe over a couple cocktails?
No dice. When T-Mobile CEO John Legere showed up at AT&T’s CES shindig, he says, security staff arrived to escort him out the door. That’s poor party manners, AT&T. Then again, maybe Legere’s magenta T-shirt didn’t meet the dress code. —Philip Michaels
