“The response to T-Mobile SyncUP DRIVE has been phenomenal! Customers are telling us what they love—and what they want to see next. And, as always, the Un-carrier’s listening,” said John Legere, president and CEO of T-Mobile. “Customers’ No.1 ask has been for roadside help. So we’ve partnered with Allstate Motor Club to roll out dedicated roadside assistance for SyncUP DRIVE customers at no extra charge!!”

T-Mobile SyncUP DRIVE customers needing anything from a jump to a tire change or a tow will be able to quickly connect to a dedicated Allstate Motor Club customer service team via the updated T-Mobile SyncUP DRIVE app – which is available for iOS on the Apple App Store and for Android devices on Google Play.
