As well as announced the T-Mobile Rhapsody Unradio music service, T-Mobile also announced a new feature that will let you try out an iPhone 5S on their network for a week for free, T-Mobile Test Drive.
The T-Mobile Test Drive will let you borrow an iPhone 5S for 7 days and use it on the T-Mobile network, there are no payments to be made, and when you are done with the device, you just return it to a T-Mobile store.
“The way this industry forces Americans to buy wireless is completely, utterly broken. I’m here to tell you there’s a better way,” declared John Legere, T-Mobile CEO and President. “While the carriers ask you to buy blind, the Un-carrier gives you transparency. Our network kicks ass, and now people can experience for themselves what a data-strong network can do with T-Mobile Test Drive.”
From next Monday you will be able to sign up to T-Mobile Test Drive, once you have signed up you will sent an iPhone 5S, and you can then use the handset for free for 7 days.
This is a smart move by T-Mobile, as it will encourage people to try out its network, and they will be able to test the handset to see if the carrier gives the coverage they need in the areas they use their smartphone.
According to T-Mobile, they are expecting around one million people to take part in their new Test Drive program, you can find out about the program over at T-Mobile at the link below.
