T-Mobile Offers Free Week-Long iPhone 'Test Drives'

-Mobile CEO John Legere announces free week long test drives at the T-Mobile Uncarrier 5.0 event in Seattle, Washington on June 18, 2014.

T-Mobile is launching a new program that will allow prospective customers to try out their network, with a new iPhone 5S, for a week — completely free of charge.
The program, which the carrier is calling Test Drive, is the result of a partnership with Apple. It's meant to give prospective customers a risk-free way to try out a new device with a new carrier, without leaving their existing contract.

People will be able to sign up for the service beginning Monday. Those who sign up will receive an iPhone 5S, equipped with an unlimited plan, to use free of charge for seven days.
The phone must be ordered online through T-Mobile's website and customers will be required to provide a credit or debit card number, along with a matching billing and shipping address, to receive the phone. A temporary hold will be placed on the user's credit or debit card for the amount of $699.99 during the test period, but customers won't be charged unless they fail to return the device at the end of the week.
Should they decide to switch carriers at the end of that time, T-Mobile will pay the termination fees on their existing contract.
“While the carriers ask you to buy blind, the Un-carrier gives you transparency," John Legere, T-Mobile's CEO, said in a statement. "Our network kicks ass, and now people can experience for themselves what a data-strong network can do with T-Mobile Test Drive.”
The network is also expanding its LTE reach to 16 new markets across the U.S, including Atlanta, Dallas, Orlando and Los Angeles.
