T-Mobile CEO John Legere tweeted today to clarify his company's 200 MB monthly plans for iPads on its network. He reiterated that "everyone" gets 200 MB of free data with no strings attached.That turned out not to be true. Or phrasing it a different way: that turned out to be not true. Or yet another way: it was a lie.
This is the policy: "Everyone" who signs up for 500 MB of data for $20 / month, will get an extra 200 MB for "free." MacRumors posted that earlier this morning, but only calling the CEO's statements "misleading."
It appears Mr Legere and Mr Obama went to the same school of public relations.
Needless to say, I won't be buying any new iPad through Verizon. I "never" use cellular any more but it would be nice to have in case of an emergency; a truly "free" 200 MB with no strings attached would be perfect. But 700 MB for $20+ is not the answer. Although it is much better than 250 MB for $15+ that ATT charges.
I'll wait. And I will stick with ATT.
