Start Your T-Mobile Free Trial Hotspot Without the Risk of Being Charged

T-Mobile offers an opportunity to try out their wireless network with a free hotspot device that you can use for up to 30 days or until you use 30GB of data through their Test Drive program. This offer is available to U.S. citizens only. 

Does T-Mobile Offer a Free Trial for Its Data Plans?

Yes—all new T-Mobile customers can enjoy a free trial by redeeming the hotspot device on the website. If you already use T-Mobile, Metro by T-Mobile, or if you are a customer of one of the partner companies that use the T-Mobile network, you aren’t eligible for a free trial.


The trial lasts for 30 days. Once it ends, you can either keep the device, return it, or send it to a friend who’d also like to try out the T-Mobile network. Your free trial will begin as soon as you insert your SIM card and activate the hotspot device for the first time. 

The device is locked to T-Mobile SIM cards and can’t be used with cards from other carriers. You can request one hotspot device for a free trial every six months.

If you’d like to try out the T-Mobile network, or simply enjoy 30GB of free data, you should sign up for their Test Drive program. Once you receive your Franklin T9 Mobile Hotspot, you’ll be able to insert a SIM card and enjoy the free T-Mobile network test period for a month, or until you reach your 30GB limit. 

You can connect multiple devices to the T-Mobile hotspot and easily stream videos, browse the internet, chat with friends, and much more while testing the wireless T-Mobile network. The Test Drive program is available while the supplies last.

If you like the quality of the network, you can sign up for one of the data plans after the trial ends.

Will My T-Mobile Free Trial Auto-Renew Into a Paid Service?

No, once 30 days have passed, or once you used 30GB worth of data, you won’t be charged because T-Mobile won’t ask for your credit card number. You can return the Franklin T9 Mobile Hotspot to the nearest T-Mobile store or pass it on to a friend.

DoNotPay’s Virtual Credit Card Enables You To Enjoy Free Trials Risk-Free 

Even though T-Mobile doesn’t ask for your credit card info when signing up for a free trial, the majority of companies will. That’s when you can rely on DoNotPay’s super helpful feature. Our virtual credit card is there to ensure you aren’t charged once the trial period is over. 

All you need to do is log in to your DoNotPay account from a web browser and click on the virtual credit card feature. We will generate a random credit card number and a temporary email address. 

Use the number when registering for a free trial and enjoy it without the fear of being charged when the trial ends. To avoid being swamped with annoying promo emails, use the temporary email address that DoNotPay provided to sign up.

DoNotPay’s virtual credit card isn’t associated with your bank account, which means that you won’t be billed, and you’ll be automatically unsubscribed as soon as the trial runs out. 

With our handy virtual credit card, you can sign up for the most popular services risk-free, including:
