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



I have wanted to own an iPhone ever since they were first released back in 2007.
I just love iMore and all it's coverage of the iPhone5.

Please let me be the 2nd winner i'm really checking for updates on this site at least 30 times a day i'm obsessed with iPhone news. My fiance hates that all I talk about is iPhone news but I would really love to tell her look gave me an iPhone 5 :) !!!

Oh please pick me....I am tired of my Blackberry and throwing in the towel....I need a companion to my iPad now...I can't be the last one in my family with a Blackberry. I travel a lot and it would be awesome to be able to Facetime my kids while travelling and not have to worry about being in a WIFI zone.

its ok i just came from tmobile android, and i'm not lucky at all so i hope who ever wins enjoys the phone and dosent sell it!!!

Timberwolf, enjoy your new iPhone 5!!!! Now... you now what would be really cool? That I get to win the 2nd iPhone 5!!!!

well im the 100000th post. here's to the 0.0000000000001% chance of winning (percentage might be off by a power or 4).

I could really use one. My sad story is I had to use an upgrade because I lost my iPhone 4S a few weeks ago on a flight to Miami (in the airplane toilet no less), taking my daughter back to college. Trip was during Isaac storm & was a total mess!

My husband now has to keep his older model, so I could get the new one (he's such a nice guy).

Congrats to Timberwolf!! Enjoy your iPhone 5! :) now pick me iMore! I check this site like 6 times a day and love the iPhone coverage you guys have been providing! Please pick me, and thanks for doing this awesome giveaway! :) Keep up the great work!

Congrats to Timberwolf. iMore I would like to win a free iPhone 5. I'm do for an update, I still have the iPhone 3. Not 3GS but 3! Help!

It would be amazing to be the second place winner. The new iphone 5 is awesome from what i've been reading about and how awesome to actually own one. Please let it be me.

Congrats, Timberwolf!! I'm sure you'll be enjoying the heck out of it! Maybe I will be the next one! Fingers crossed...

Congrats to Timberwolf for winning the prize, but alas there's a second a chance to win, and, oh, how I would love to rid myself of WinMo technology without a whimper or a tear, thanks for the second chance ... :-)

Congrats, Timberwolf! I guess I'll try again, as I still need to replace my girlfriend's iPhone 4 :)

I've enjoyed my 3 year old 3GS, but it's time for her to rest. And shout out to the iMore team for great coverage!

It would be nice if I won, the prize will travel all the way from the US to Tegucigalpa, Honduras in Central America. =)

Sure could use some love. Wife got laid off work and that has thrown a wrench in my plans for a shiny new phone. Would be great to win and not have to worry about it. Sometimes things have to go your way...don't they?

Hi iMore people, here we go again. A second chance is good when it comes to another opportunity. Fingers crossed to be chosen. Thanks.

Awesome job Timberwolf now me next please. Come on guys. I work at At&t and anyone interested in apple products i tell them to go to your site for the most up to date stuff.

Even though I skipped the iPhone 4s I will still not be able to line up on launch day. I wont be able to buy one this year period so I'm entering every contest humanly possible because I want this device PLEASE.
