OLD Method to Extend Intune Trial Version
Initially, I tried to call Microsoft CSS to extend the Intune subscription without any success. The people in CSS support are not aware of any process to extend the Intune trial subscription. I’ve reached out (again) to Gerry; he was super helpful and provided a tip that we should NOT contact CSS for intune trial extension.
Rather, there is another support number for Microsoft Online Services Customer Support. Following is the mail I got from the Microsoft Online Support team upon extension Microsoft Intune trial.
To extend your Microsoft Intune trial subscription, you need to contact numbers (of respective location) in the following link “Microsoft Online Services Customer Support.”
This support number can be used for Office 365 trial version and Microsoft Intune trial version extension!

Old Information about Intune Licenses
What is the difference between the license offerings Microsoft Intune with Microsoft Desktop Operating System and just Microsoft Intune ?
As per the latest Microsoft Intune Licensing Data Sheet, Microsoft offers two kinds of licenses for Microsoft Intune services. 1. Microsoft Intune Add-On and 2. Microsoft Intune:- I ASSUME that Microsoft Intune offering (RS 360.00 /- which you can see on the purchase page above) is Microsoft Intune Add-ON (this is useful when you already have an SCCM 2012 environment). Microsoft Intune with Microsoft Desktop Operating System (INR 660/-) is Microsoft’s offering that includes Intune and SCCM 2012 licenses. I’m not an expert in licensing, so this is the interpretation that I could make out from the Licensing datasheet.
P.S.: A few months back, Microsoft had another license offering called Microsoft Intune with Windows Software Assurance, and now they’ve removed it. MPSA: Microsoft Products and Services Agreement; CSP: Cloud Solution Provider; MOSP: Microsoft Online Subscription Program.
