T-Mobile offers a new, affordable way to try the network for free for 30 days without any additional equipment. identified by light reading, T-Mobile’s existing test drive program now works via eSIM on compatible iPhones. Just download the app and follow the instructions to start your eSIM trial. No payment information is required. There are currently no changes to your carrier plan or phone number, but your device will use T-Mobile data.
The test drive program has been available in several forms since 2014. T-Mobile will send you a free Wi-Fi hotspot with the latest version still available for those who can’t use the eSIM feature. Connect to your current phone and try the network. This new eSIM version offers the same kind of less hassle trial version (30 days or 30 GB, whichever comes first).
T-Mobile says the eSIM option is a pilot program it introduced last week. It currently only works on unlocked iPhones starting with the XS and newer devices running iOS 14.5 or later. If you have an iPhone 12th generation device, you can also access T-Mobile’s 5G network during the trial period.
We’ve tried it once and it’s actually as easy as it seems. Just follow the setup prompts. It’s definitely better than going to the store or carrying a Wi-Fi hotspot. Of course, it’s especially useful for T-Mobile. Carriers are looking to adjust their relatively strong 5G spectrum reserves before Verizon and AT&T catch up with newly acquired C-band frequencies later this year. Getting more customers to try the network and switch now will help make the most of the 5G “lead”. But anyway, this is one of the easiest ways to try a new network without throwing away your current provider, and not a bad way if you’re wondering what T-Mobile service is like in your area. to find out.
