Dear John….


Dear John,

We’re over. We just didn’t see eye to eye. You didn’t respect us. You mocked us. You tricked us making us think we were special for a moment, only to throw us under the bus when you saw an opportunity. You claim to want to give customers choice, and yet you tried to take our choice away.

So we left. Our favored CEO had fired your as…er… butt. And now look at you. Playing the jilted lover. Crying out for us not to leave. It’s embarrassing John… stop. Asking us to bring devices you wouldn’t provide when we asked. Offering us money to stay. Really John, man up. grab some tissues and wipe those eyes.

Just remember, you were a first. The first carrier to get fired by a phone manufacturer. The first carrier to have a manufacturer say, you’re insignificant to us. You know, it may just be that your self fulfilling prophecy is coming true. You claim to be the uncarrier, well, once you have no phones to sell, then yes, you will be the uncarrier.

John, I wish I could say it was nice knowing you, but sadly it wasn’t. Now, it’s time to let go. I will be removing you from my twitter feed. Removing you from my news feeds. Let go John. We have.
