Sprint offers a 30-day free trial of its network

It seems as though T-Mobile has a knack for getting competitors to latch onto its every move in the wireless market. Last week, T-Mobile CEO John Legere unveiled the carrier's seven-day "Test Drive" that allows folks to try out the T-Mobile 4G LTE network with a borrowed Apple iPhone 5S
 
Today, Sprint is offering up an initiative of its own with a "30 Day Risk-Free Trial." Unlike T-Mobile's offer, Sprint will allow customers to purchase any smartphone offered on its network and use it for up to 30 days. If the customer is not satisfied with his or her results on Sprint's network, the company will "refund the cost of their device and waive all service and activation charges."
 
“We believe customers will be delighted with the Sprint retail experience, our customer service, and the performance of America’s newest network,” said Sprint CEO Dan Hesse, “so we’re guaranteeing it.”
 
Sprint’s latest offer starts June 27.
 
It didn't take long for John Legere to hop on Twitter and attack Sprint's "copycat" antics, with the exec posting:

 
Even after causing a bit of a controversy last week during his Uncarrier press conference, it seems that Legere is unwilling to fully tame his brash personality.

No. I use Sprint now and I want to switch to T-Mobile once my contract expires. I think it would be a good idea if Softbank bought T-Mobile and put the management team of T-Mobile in charge of the combined company. But, Sprint on its own, with its current management isn't a company I will stick with. I really do hope I am saved the pain point of switching in a few months, by this acquisition. I just can't see sticking with Sprint past the end of my contract if this doesn't happen.

If Softbank buys T-Mobile and puts Sprints team in charge of the combined entity; I guess I will have to figure out which is the greater evil, Verizon of AT&T.
