T-Mobile "Test Drive" gives you an iPhone 5s for seven days


I wonder if a Canadian, visiting the US for a week, could take advantage of this? Do you need proof of a current US plan? Hmmm

It's still a $700 hold on your credit card. If you don't return it in decent working condition, that money automatically theirs.

They will most likely turn it over to a collection agency, blacklist the phone and eff up your credit rating.

T-Mobile only offers GPRS and EDGE for 100 miles in any direction from here, so trying out an iPhone 5s would not be a good tool for enticing someone sign up with them.
