T-Mobile bets iPhone Owners $1,000 in Speed Challenge, You never Win

T-Mobile announced yesterday a promotion in Seattle that challenges iPhone users to beat a Galaxy S 4G in download speed tests. If your iPhone on AT&T or Verizon is faster than T-Mobile's Android phone you get $1,000.

The T-Mobile speed challenge is offered 4/29/2011 through 5/1/2011. Only 10 stores participate in Seattle. See the list here. You only get one chance to compete and you must be over 18 and a U.S. resident. Of course you cannot use Wi-fi. The Speed challenge consists of three tests of the Galaxy S 4G versus the iPhone based solely on download speeds as measured by the Application; participants will be eligible to receive $1,000 if their iPhones are faster in two out of the three tests.

The rules says that successful participants must provide contact information; affidavit of eligibility and a liability release may be required.

T-Mobile is sure pretty confident that nobody will win this challenge. You might get actually ridiculed by T-Mobile staff when you do the test. According to a smartphone speed tests performed by PCWorld in March in Seattle, T-Mobile download speeds are more than double those of AT&T and Verizon.

The only way you could win this challenge is when the T-Mobile 4G network is failing right during your test. The only legit way to win is with an LTE phone.

Get all the details here . Ping us if you have participated in the challenge.
