Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure had a Bit of a Meltdown on Twitter Last Night, Goes After T-Mobile’s John Legere

As you all know by now, Sprint introduced a new plan this week called “All-In” that’s basically them trying to usher back in the subsidy model of wireless carrier pricing. They bundle the price of a phone with service, just like wireless carriers have done for years but are now moving far away from. Of course, leave it to Sprint to try and re-invent subsidies when no one wants them. Not only that, but the plan included this insanely offensive and quite sneaky video streaming data “limitation” that they have already (sort of) backed away from. It’s mostly a mess of a smartphone plan that also includes a human being having to deal with Sprint’s network on a day-to-day basis.

To make matters more comical, T-Mobile CEO John Legere took to Twitter yesterday to share his thoughts on the plan. He, as you could have guessed, thinks it’s a “miss” and that you should all #sprintlikehell from it. Again, shocker, John Legere is talking sh*t about a competitor. That’s not the story here.

This became a hilarious piece of news when Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure actually responded to Legere’s Tweet in full meltdown mode. Here, take a look.  (more…)

Wednesday Poll: Sound, Vibrate, or Silent?

You can tell a lot about a person by the volume status of their phone. OK, I just made that up, but I am curious as to how everyone typically keeps there phone when it comes to volume settings. An internal polling of the DL crew showed varying results, with some going sound-on all of the time, while the rest were split between full silence and vibrate-only.

So today’s poll is simple – sound, vibrate, or silent?

Deal: $29 for This 3500mAh ZeroLemon Slim Battery Case for Galaxy S6 and Edge

Battery life on the Samsung Galaxy S6 or Galaxy S6 Edge isn’t something you will be bragging about any time soon. It’s borderline bad, actually. But these phones happen to have the best displays and cameras in any mobile phone, along with a hell of a premium build, so it’s hard to argue against anyone interested in buying one. With that said, we know that battery life is a top 3 category for some, especially those who aren’t near a charger all day long for quick re-fills.

For those people, we give you the ZeroLemon 3500mAh Slim battery case at just $28.99. With this case, you not only get quite a bit of protection, but you also get an extra 3500mAh of juice that can be used once your initial charge runs out. The case will add some thickness, but since the phone is quite small, it shouldn’t be unwieldy.

Companies like Mophie have made these types of cases famous, but they also charge a $100 premium for most. At $28.99, this is a pretty good deal.
