T-Mobile is offering New T-Mobile Network Customers with Apple iPhone XS or Newer Only: 30 Days or 30GB of LTE Data (whichever comes first) with Unlimited Talk and Text available for Free when you follow the deal instructions below.

Thanks to community member dealwars for finding this deal.

Deal Instructions:
  1. To activate the trial, download the T-Mobile Network Test Drive app from the Apple App Store.
  2. Open the app and allow the app to complete the compatibility check.
  3. Once your device compatibility is verified, you will be offered to opt-in to important Network Test Drive notifications on your device.
  4. Enter your name, email and a contact phone number, and accept the terms and conditions.
  5. Review how to setup the T-Mobile trial profile on your device, then tap next.
  6. Tap Begin installation.
  7. Tap Continue to install the T-Mobile network onto your available eSIM profile.
  8. Tap Add Cellular Plan.
  9. You now have 2 cellular plans on your device, your primary network (physical SIM) in addition to the T-Mobile Network Test Drive plan. The T-Mobile Test Drive plan will be labeled Secondary. You have the option to rename this if they like.
  10. The Default Line is used to make calls or send messages. It is recommended you select your Primary network provider as your Default Line. This allows you to be able to send and receive calls from both your current carrier and the T-Mobile trial line without any interruption. You can always change the default line later in Settings.
  11. It is recommended you set your current network provider as the Primary line, to associate your Apple ID for iMessage and Facetime and to send and receive messages. You can always change this in iMessage & Facetime Settings.
  12. Select Secondary in Cellular Data. This is very important so that you can experience the T-Mobile data network and get the most out of the Network Test Drive app. It is recommended that you leave Allow Cellular Data Switching turned off. You can change this later in the settings, if you choose. See: eSIM settings: Apple iPhone on iOS 14
  13. Once complete, you will be presented the trial dashboard and can revisit the app at any time to see your trial progress and data usage or get support.
Promotion Details:
  • Use your current phone and phone number.
  • During the trial period, you will be provided with a temporary number that you can use voluntarily for calls and texts. By default, your primary number with your existing network provider will be used for calls and texts.
    • Once the trial expires, you will not be able to keep the temporary number that you were assigned.
  • At the end of the trial, your current provider remains active on your device and the deactivated T-Mobile eSIM profile can be safely removed.
  • You'll receive emails and text messages from T-Mobile throughout your trial to notify you of instructions, and status.
Limitations:
  • Current T-Mobile, Sprint, and Metro by T-Mobile customers or customers of T-Mobile partners using the T-Mobile network are not eligible (former Test Drive customers must wait six (6) months for eligible to try another test drive).
  • The Network Test Drive app will only work on Apple iPhone XS or newer with eSIM capabilities.
  • Your Apple iPhone must be unlocked, must be on iOS 14.5 or higher, and not be using eSIM for your current provider.
  • If you have an iPhone 12 or newer, you will get to experience T-Mobile's blazing fast 5G network.
  • If you have an older or incompatible device, you can still Test Drive by signing up for a Test Drive hotspot. To sign up for the Test Drive hotspot option, visit https://www.t-mobile.com/offers/free-trial.
  • You can sign up for a free Test Drive account once every six (6) months.
  • Network Test Drive is limited to 30 days or 30GB data, whichever occurs first.

This seems like it'd be incredibly useful to *test* tmobile service in your area without needing a plan or sim card.
Activated on iphone 11 that's currently on xfinity mobile and Tmobile gave a new temporary number that's setup as secondary line by default. I can use my primary line for calls/text and use secondary line just for cellular data. Thank you tmobile for free 30 gb!
iPhone 11 here. Worked for me. Took me less than 5 mins to set up and run. Honestly, where I live, I noticed that T-Mobile's download speeds are much less than Xfinity Mobile's. But, free is free. 30GB is a lot for me. Thanks T-Mobile!

So iPhone XS and later? Could be useful for those with a spare iPhone.

Good luck!

Works great and steps were easy to follow. Honestly I didn't do any of the steps because I think my phone auto-configured it all. 2nd phone is an iPhone that I haven't migrated to yet. Obviously you can't be on airplane mode or the app thinks your IMEI is already taken.

Wish they had this years ago when Pokemon Go came out.

Wondering if I should put my phone number when setting up? Currently with T-Mobile so not sure if I should put in my number. Does activating give you a new temporary number or does it port your old number? Or is it T-Mobile's digits where you can call and text from another device? Not sure if this was intended for new T-Mobile customer's but I don't mind getting a free month of unlimited talk and text with 30gb of data for a friend. 😉

Is it possible to still get the physical hotspot device if my eSIM is already in use?

Nice! So you have a primary line (xfinity) on a physical SIM card and then secondary line (T-mobile) on eSIM on your iPhone 11, using both lines at the same time on the same phone?
