Beware, rival carriers: T-Mobile isn’t done with you yet. T-Mobile CEO John Legere took to Twitter on Wednesday to tease his company’s upcoming “Uncarrier 4” initiative that he vowed would “eliminate another customer pain point.” Legere unfortunately didn’t give any hint about what the new “pain point” might be but the carrier has already made major waves within the wireless industry this year with its moves to ditch wireless service contracts, to give customers the option of upgrading their smartphones earlier and to offer free international data roaming. The one thing that looms over Legere’s most recent crowing, however, is the report we saw last week about Sprint potentially making a bid to buy T-Mobile in the first half of 2014. If that were to happen then it could put the fate of a lot of the company’s “uncarrier” ambitions up in the air.
