T-Mobile CEO John Legere can't pass up an opportunity to take a swipe at the competition.And he did not disappoint during his quarterly earnings chat with analysts last week, when the wisecracking executive lobbed a zinger based on a recent North Charleston event.The setup started with a “TEX Talks” forum that T-Mobile held Oct. 24-25 at its call center on Rivers Avenue, where other companies were invited to learn about a new customer-service approach called “Team of Experts.”Legere went to great lengths to include his chief competitors in the sessions, a spokeswoman said.“To get their attention, John flew a banner over Verizon’s HQ, sent a singing telegram to AT&T HQ (but they wouldn’t let us past the security desk) and projected an invite on a building across from Comcast HQ," she said in an email.Legere unveiled the Team of Experts concept in August during a visit to the North Charleston center, which is housed in an old Kmart … [Read more...] about T-Mobile rivals snub over-the-top invites to North Charleston event

Zeke Miller and Darlene Superville, Associated Press Updated 11:53 pm CDT, Friday, August 31, 2018 Now Playing: President Donald Trump says the prospect of a North Carolina drawing new districts weeks ahead of the November midterm election is "unfair." (Aug. 31) Media: Associated Press CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — President Donald Trump says the prospect of North Carolina drawing new congressional districts just weeks before the November midterm elections is "unfair." A panel of federal judges this week struck down the state's congressional map, saying Republican state legislators went too far in using political data to preserve GOP-held seats. The judges raised the possibility of drawing new districts by mid-September so they can be used in the Nov. 6 elections, or at least before the new Congress is seated in January. Republicans are objecting to the plan, which comes as the party — and Trump — fight to defend the GOP House majority. … [Read more...] about Trump says North Carolina redistricting ruling ‘unfair’
