Test out America’s fastest 5G network with T-Mobile Network Test Drive.

What's the deal?

T-Mobile Network Test Drive lets you try our network for free! You get 30 days or 30GB of high-speed data, whichever comes first. You can stream video, check email, browse the web, and make calls, all with your current phone.

iPhone with eSIM

  • The iPhone XS or newer have eSIM technology and are eligible for Network Test drive.
  • With the iPhone 12 or newer, you can even try out T-Mobile's blazing fast 5G network.
  • During your Network Test Drive, the T-Mobile network will be installed on your eSIM profile with a temporary number.
    • You can use this number to make calls and texts during the Test Drive.
    • The iPhone will prefer your current phone number for calls and texts unless you change it.
  • At the end of the trial, your current provider remains active on your device and the T-Mobile eSIM profile can be safely erased.
