There is a bit more to Uncarrier 5.0 than the new Test Drive iPhone loaner program T-Mobile(s tmus) announced earlier this evening. CEO John Legere said that T-Mobile is allowing unlimited music streaming on its Simple Choice data plans — regardless of whether you subscribe to an all-you-can-eat plan or one with a monthly data bucket.

T-Mobile is basically giving audio streaming services like Pandora(s p), iTunes Radio(s aapl) and Spotify a free pass on its network as long as you to subscribe to a $50 or higher plan (it’s not available on Simple Starter plans).
