Shares of BlackBerry Limited (NASDAQ: BBRY) shot up 5.35% on Tuesday with a little over 30 million shares traded. The Company’s Chief Executive Officer John Chen responded to T-Mobile US Inc. (TMUS) for encouraging users of his company’s devices to switch to Apple Inc.’s iPhone. T-Mobile had pushed the iPhone 5S for $0 down, according to a copy of the ad posted to website crackberry.com. “Switch to iPhone 5S and get powerful communications and productivity apps - with the ease of use that Apple is known for,” said T-Mobile, which is based in Bellevue, Washington.

“As we were never told of their plans in advance, I can only guess that T-Mobile thought it’s ’great offer for BlackBerry customers’ would be well received,” Chen wrote in a blog post. “T-Mobile could not have been more wrong.”

“I hope we can find a way forward that allows us to serve our shared customers once again,” he said. “I can assure you that we are outraged too.”
