Announcing the winner of the FREE iPhone 5... And a 2nd chance to win!


Here it is. The moment you've all been waiting for. We're announcing the winner of the FREE iPhone 5 from iMore... And we're giving everyone else a 2nd chance to win! Are you ready? Are you set?

Find out who won, and how YOU can still win... after the break!



Congratulations Timberwolf! We'll be in touch via email to get your information for the prize!

EVERYONE ELSE: Keep reading, because you're not done yet!

Tomorrow is iPhone 5 day! We know a lot of you are lining up at the stores to be among the first to get your hands on Apple's latest creation. Some of us will be there too. We also know not everyone can upgrade right now, so here's what we've got for you.

We're giving away ANOTHER free iPhone 5 to ANOTHER lucky iMore reader!

That's right! FREE. No strings attached. All you have to do is be a registered member of iMore and leave a comment below. You have one week to get your entry in, so get to it! We will announce the lucky winner next week here on the blogs.

The rules: One comment per person. If we find you trying to cheat and enter multiple times, you will be disqualified. The contest is open worldwide, so anyone can enter. And the prize is just the phone, any contract and accessories are the responsibility of the winner. Good luck!

hello900 says:

It would be an honour receiving a device as technologically advanced as the iPhone 5 and as someone who has never been able to afford any Apple products but have watched every Apple launch event and I truly belive that Steve Jobs was and still is a revolutionary genious! Also don't forget about Sir Jonathan Ive a legend himself! :P

Julie Geoffroy says:

I really want to win this IPhone 5. It would be a exactly what I am looking for. My present phone is no longer working!!!!! Please, make me a winner!
