T-Mo has a theory for why renters prefer renting out cars: It helps them keep tabs on their neighbors.
T-Mobile says its “renting a boyfriend” feature helps customers keep track of the rental transactions.
The feature, which was announced in October, allows T-Mobiles customers to rent a car on T-Mobility network, a prepaid carrier that charges a monthly fee to customers to use the network.
The feature, T-mobile said in a statement, is “designed to help customers maintain an active rental history” by allowing them to track transactions and to see when their rental accounts have been transferred.
It’s an interesting one, considering T-mobiles own smartphone application is called “rent a friend” and allows you to rent out your home to a friend, and it’s not the first time T-mo has tried to give users a way to keep tabs of their neighbor.
The app was introduced in late 2018.
Last summer, TMO launched a “rent the car” feature for its network customers, but that feature was limited to a single vehicle and not included in the T-MO app.
T-mobility customers were limited to buying a vehicle through a vehicle dealership.
TMO later said that it would add a rental feature for new T-max cars.TMO has said the rental feature will be rolled out in the coming weeks, though there are some caveats.
The company said customers who use the feature “must be connected to T-Max’s network.”
That means customers must be on the same T-MAX network as T-s or T-e customers, which means some people may be able to use T-Motels car rental service even if they have no direct connections to TMAX.
Tmo has also said it will allow T-motels customers to book up to five vehicles for $20 per vehicle.
TMo said the price includes a monthly payment of $10, but T-Motor vehicles can be rented for less than that.TMMO says the rental option also helps T-auto customers stay in touch with their friends and family, which it says “allows you to stay connected to your friends and families through social media and online.”TMO added that customers can use the service to rent their vehicle for up to two years for an extra $50 a month.
Tmo is offering the service for $10 a month, and customers will need to use an existing T-vehicle for the rental to work.
