CNET News Video: Try out an iPhone 5S for free with T-Mobile Test Drive

2:04 /

At a press event in Seattle, T-Mobile announced a new program allowing anyone to sign up online to try out a T-Mobile iPhone 5S for free for seven days. At the end of the period, just drop off the phone if you decide not to keep it.

We think everybody should cheat on their carrier. We are, we whole in this world of reality we believe everybody, every Verizon, every AT&T customer should cheat on their carrier. And enjoy every minute of it. So what we've done is, partnering with Apple, which we're very proud of. Anybody can, for seven days, get a fully loaded iPhone 5S with an unlimited data plan. And you can test drive our network. And then, simply return it to a store. And it is 0 cost, no down payment, and it'll be fantastic to see. And by the way very importantly we also found out. That an unbelievable low percentage of Americans actually know that T-Mobile carries the iPhone. So if you wanna test drive an iPhone 5s. This is here for you as well. And the way it works is pretty simple. I was, I, I thought to myself, let me make a slide to lay out the process that people should follow. So that people will get this at the press conference. And then, I made the slide and I thought to myself, well I don't really think that was, that was probably necessary, but it works like this. You go to t-mobile.com/testdrive, you order your phone. What we're gonna do is get your name and address so we can ship it to you, it comes in about two days. We're gonna take your credit card number. We're not gonna charge you. All we're gonna do is make sure the shipping address matches the billing address and we're gonna make sure the credit card number is good. You pay nothing, there's no deposit, there's no payment. We send you an iPhone 5s. Or whatever is the latest and greatest iPhone and, then you take it for a spin. Bang on our network for a week, have a ball, take it for a seven night stand. Cheat on your carrier and then, bring it back. That's it.
