BELLEVUE, Wash. - August 12, 2020 - Try before you bye. T-Mobile (NASDAQ: TMUS) today announced one of its original Un-carrier moves - Test Drive - is now welcoming businesses with the No-Risk Network Trial for business.

And, to sweeten the switch, starting August 14, T-Mobile will offer business customers a Samsung Galaxy A51 5G for free and 90-days of free service and pay off up to $650 from a previous provider! Plus, T-Mobile is launching a major ad campaign underscoring the T-Mobile Business Advantage - no more trade-offs between network, support and value.
'For the hundreds of thousands of businesses all over the country struggling to stay afloat, saving money has never been more important. We want them to know, with T-Mobile, you don't have to choose between a powerful network, unmatched support and incredible value,' said, Mike Katz, Executive Vice President, T-Mobile for Business. 'We're so confident in the strength of our network, we want you to try it for free. Come on over, let us show you what being part of the magenta family is all about.'
