BlackBerry diehards are as bad as any Apple or Android ‘fanboy/girl’ sometimes. The latest high-profile person to feel the brunt of Team BlackBerry’s force is T-Mobile CEO John Legere after he tried to sell them iPhones. The Tmo boss has now responded, stating that he hears BlackBerry users loud and clear.
Legere got an earful from BB fans after pitching them the iPhone 5s for $0 down as “a great offer for BlackBerry customers”. This promotion created a backlash from BlackBerry users forcing a response from the CEO.
John Legere tweeted out this message for BlackBerry fans:
BlackBerry users, I’m hearing you loud and clear. Let me work with the team and get back with you.

Legere has apparently seen the error of his ways and has tried to appease BlackBerry fans who were offended by the marketing.
He added today:
BlackBerry follow up- We give our customers choices, but you don’t have to give up your #loyalty. We will continue to support
