“Test Drive” iPhones to be upgraded to iOS 8 from next week, switch to iPhone 6 in future?

Earlier this summer, T-Mobile launched its “Test Drive” as the major driving force behind Uncarrier 5.0. It essentially enabled customers with other carriers to try out an iPhone 5s on T-Mo’s network free for 7 days. And the motivation was two-fold: Boosting confidence in the fast-growing LTE network, and letting consumers know that T-Mobile actually sells the iPhone. To ensure that customers … [read full article]

T-Mobile Test Drive results from around the web: Great speeds, more consistency required

John Legere invited everyone to “cheat on their carrier” at the most recent Uncarrier event in Seattle last month. He proudly announced a new phase of its industry-changing movement which would allow anyone to take an iPhone 5s for 7 days, free of charge, to see how they get on with the carrier’s network. Since then, thousands of people have signed up, and a handful of tech journalists have given it a spin … [read full article]

T-Mobile Website Now Shows Black Galaxy S III Renders, Mystery Continues

After we posted up our original albeit skeptical post on T-Mobile possibly using renders for a Black Galaxy S III in a YouTube video, it was met with a lot of pessimism, optimism, and in some cases flat-out denial. All of those feelings may still be right, but now it’s T-Mobile’s own website that’s showing off Black Galaxy S III renders. There’s three pictures below as well as a new video … [read full article]

Amazon’s App Store Update Includes Test Drive Feature, Try Apps Before You Buy Them

    While most of our Android attention is focused on Google’s own Play store, the Amazon Appstore has become its own competitor and a new update makes it even more so. The change-log for yesterday’s release highlights a new “Test Drive” option: a “beta feature that lets you instantly try apps before buying them.” If this works the way we all hope it could, I’m adding this to my Android Challenge. The … [read full article]

T-Mobile TestDrive Website Now Live And Ready For Your —- Test Drive

I’ll just … [read full article]

Carly and that motorcycle are going to make definite appearances in T-Mobile’s next set of commercials. In … [read full article]
