T-Mobile today kicked off a new promotion, and this oneâ€™s aimed squarely at Verizon Wireless.
The new Never Settle Trial takes Verizonâ€™s â€œNever Settleâ€ slogan and turns it against the big red carrier. With this new promo, T-Mobile is inviting Verizon customers to try T-Mobile for two weeks, free of charge. Once a Verizon customer ports their number to T-Mobile, theyâ€™ll be given a T-Mo smartphone to test for 14 days, but they can also hold on to their Verizon phone during the trial period.
If the customer decides to switch to T-Mobile for good, T-Mo will pay their Verizon ETF or outstanding device payments once the customer trades in their Verizon phone and gets a T-Mobile phone on a Simple Choice plan. If the customer doesâ€™t want to jump ship to T-Mobile for good, they simply turn their T-Mo phone in within 14 days and T-Mobile will refund any costs incurred during the test as well as any fees that Verizon may charge for restarting service, such as an activation fee.
T-Mobileâ€™s Never Settle Trial will kick off on May 13 and run through May 31. T-Mo already offers a Test Drive program that lets anyone try out their network, but that trial only lasts for 7 days rather than the 14 that are included in the Never Settle Trial. While porting your number to T-Mo and then porting it back to Verizon might be a bit of a hassle if you end up not caring for T-Mobileâ€™s service, this Never Settle Trial could be worth a shot if youâ€™re a Verizon customer thatâ€™s been interested in seeing what The Un-carrier is all about.
