T-Mobile's Uncarrier 5.0.

    When does Test Drive begin and what happens if I return it on Day 9?
  • Roger Cheng 6/19/2014 2:06:50 AM
    Test Drive begins on Monday, Sievert says.
  • James Martin 6/19/2014 2:06:54 AM
  • Roger Cheng 6/19/2014 2:07:09 AM
    Sievert adds there's going to be a grace period. But customers do have to return the phone at a store.
  • James Martin 6/19/2014 2:07:23 AM
  • Roger Cheng 6/19/2014 2:07:43 AM
    You won't be dinged if you're a little late in returning your phone, Sievert says.
  • James Martin 6/19/2014 2:08:37 AM
  • Jessica Dolcourt 6/19/2014 2:08:48 AM
    Legere is asking the crowd who would try out the new service and who would switch. For those who didn't raise their hands, he responded, "What, are you stupid?"
  • Roger Cheng 6/19/2014 2:09:21 AM
    How frequently can you use a Test Drive?
  • James Martin 6/19/2014 2:09:23 AM
  • Roger Cheng 6/19/2014 2:09:28 AM
    Sievert: You can sign up once a year.
  • Jessica Dolcourt 6/19/2014 2:09:36 AM
    "There are so many things I can say, Roger. You're such a glass-is-half-empty sort of guy" Legere has a serious crush on you, Roger. He wants to woo you with a 7-night stand.
  • Roger Cheng 6/19/2014 2:09:42 AM
    Legere says I'm a "glass is half empty kind of guy"
  • Roger Cheng 6/19/2014 2:10:14 AM
    @JessicaDolcourt: If I could favorite that, I would...
  • Roger Cheng 6/19/2014 2:10:28 AM
    I respond: I'm reporter, we're all like that!!
  • Roger Cheng 6/19/2014 2:11:01 AM
    Question on a potential merger with Sprint.
  • Roger Cheng 6/19/2014 2:11:10 AM
    Legere: We're out of time. (He jokes)
  • Roger Cheng 6/19/2014 2:11:30 AM
    Legere declines to comment on the rumors of Sprint buying T-Mobile.
  • Roger Cheng 6/19/2014 2:11:36 AM
    This Uncarrier movement will continue, he says.
  • James Martin 6/19/2014 2:11:42 AM
  • Roger Cheng 6/19/2014 2:11:51 AM
    The competition in the US is much better because T-Mobile exists. It's getting better all the time, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 6/19/2014 2:12:03 AM
    What the US is getting to see is what an inkling of competition looks like, he says.
  • Roger Cheng 6/19/2014 2:12:22 AM
    How do we get the scale, capital, and spectrum to continue with this campaign? One of them is consolidation.
  • Roger Cheng 6/19/2014 2:12:38 AM
    In anything we do, it will be about the Uncarrier revolution and the T-Mobile brand getting bigger and stronger.
  • Roger Cheng 6/19/2014 2:13:15 AM
    Question: Will the Test Drive include the latest and greatest iPhone?
  • Jessica Dolcourt 6/19/2014 2:13:26 AM
    T-Mobile has already shaken up the wireless industry so much, which I generally think is a good thing. Not that there isn't a fair amount of smugness to go along with it!
  • James Martin 6/19/2014 2:13:41 AM
  • Roger Cheng 6/19/2014 2:13:54 AM
    Sievert declined to comment on future plans, since there isn't yet a next iPhone out yet. But the point is to bring the latest and greatest devices for demonstrations, he says.
  • Jessica Dolcourt 6/19/2014 2:14:38 AM
    Legere keeps pointing out that we're exhausted reporters. How kind!
  • Roger Cheng 6/19/2014 2:15:01 AM
    Every reporter has a test drive phone to try out, Legere says.
  • Jessica Dolcourt 6/19/2014 2:15:26 AM
    I think Legere has singled out Roger at least 5 times, now. I guess we got some seriously good seats.
  • Jessica Dolcourt 6/19/2014 2:15:56 AM
    Because thee's a test drive phone just for him...
  • Roger Cheng 6/19/2014 2:16:10 AM
    Okay, the conference wraps up with -- what else? -- Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.
  • Roger Cheng 6/19/2014 2:16:33 AM
    What can I say? Legere and I are twitter buddies
  • Jessica Dolcourt 6/19/2014 2:16:59 AM
    Roger, you and I are Twitter buddies. What happened tonight was just unholy.
  • Roger Cheng 6/19/2014 2:17:36 AM
    Agreed.
  • Jessica Dolcourt 6/19/2014 2:17:38 AM
    Thanks for joining us, everyone. And if you want to know what that "holgoram phone" that he kept talking about....
  • Roger Cheng 6/19/2014 2:17:42 AM
    Okay, we're getting kicked out.
  • Jessica Dolcourt 6/19/2014 2:18:00 AM
  • Roger Cheng 6/19/2014 2:18:22 AM
    Okay folks, that's a wrap. '
  • Roger Cheng 6/19/2014 2:18:29 AM
    I'm relieved and tired. Hopefully you enjoyed this live blog.
