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



Love your work, guys! Never had an iPhone but love iOS on the iPad/iPod touch. Would love a chance to win the big one!

Hi iMore, I would really like to be the one to win this iPhone. I love gadgets, especially from Apple, I am really into tech news and love your reporting. I'm sure it would be awesome to read your site from a brand new iPhone 5. I promise I will add iMore to my homescreen and send you a screenshot! :)

Me please! My DroidX is dying and I want to return to the iPhone but cannot afford it, plus if I win, I can keep my current data plan! (And congrats, Timberwolf)

Congrats Timberwolf!!! Maybe you can pass some luck my way :) I want to convert my mom and give her the new iPhone 5!

luck |lək|
success or failure apparently brought by chance rather than through one's own actions.
Yep- that's me. And I need it. So please, luck, don't let me down!

Congrats to Timberwolf! Enjoy your phone :)

Thanks to iMore for these contests!

Please consider me entered :)

Here is hoping that this preacher is lucky enough to win an iPhone 5. If not, here's hoping I win a lottery.

Ooooh... I want to win. Of course though, a guy named Timberwolf would win. How do you beat a wolf? If I change my name to Coyote do I get a better chance?

I'm in! This is my chance, my one and only opportunity to get my hands on that precious little piece of engineering!

I have decided I want to jump from Android to iOS and this would make it happen much sooner than my April 2013 upgrade date. Thanks and keep up the good work on this blog!

I would love to win the iPhone 5 cause I can't really afford to buy one or would be nice to have a smartphone like that... Plus apple is the best :)

I was disappointed when I saw I didn't win. Then, I realized I could win again, and that disappointment was replaced by overly optimistic hope. Such is the cycle of the imore giveaways. I'd rather live with the overly optimistic hope though, so I'm glad you keep them going!

I always enjoy the articles and reviews on the iOS line of products. Your blog provides a good resource of content. Would love to win the iPHONE 5. Thanks again for the opportunity to win a cool product. Ciao!

Lets do one more time, i really do hope its me this time.

I am trying to finally try out some new technology!

Congratulations Timberwolf - you are the big man on campus today. :-)

I hope you won before you bought yours.

Well, I guess I might as well be next so here I am with my, "Pick Me".


Entering the contest again...Hopefully the second time is the charm! :-D upgrade isn't until next year, so this would make me happy if I won! PRETTY PLEASE WITH CHERRIES ON TOP!

First you gave us all the accurate leaks on the iPhone 5! Then you gave away one. Now your giving away a second iPhone 5?!?!?!

We are a multi-iPhone family. I have a 4S with a 5 on the way, wife has a 3GS and will be getting my 4S, daughter has a 4. We threw away the Samsung Galaxy S... So, we could always use another...

AWWWWE i never win anything :(......PLEASE I would love to win this!!!...You guys are awesome with ur giveaways!, PLEASE PICK ME!!!! :)

Christmas is just around the corner....sort of. I've been a very good boy, so please Santa iMore leave me a iPhone 5 in my stocking!! ;) Thank you.....LOVE you iMore!

Thanks for the iPhone 5 Contest.
You guys are doing a great job of reporting apple news and have a great user friendly website.

Sweet! Have been a great fan of iMore on fb but have been putting off registering. This just gave me the incentive! Thanks!

So naming my first born iMore wasnt enough to win the first time around... So now I will name my first son after Rene and then I will let Rene Ritchie name the 2nd born!!! Lets make it happen!!!

Oh, no! It looks like you misspelled my username. It's not Timberwolf, it's nf_tammy. Yes, it's a common mistake. I get that all the time. I suppose the confusion is that sometimes I go by my other name... (oh, what is my other name, you ask?)... CASH.


Congrats, Timberwolf. =D

I would love to have one please!! The sit is booked marked in my phone and am addicted to reading news from this sit??!! Please choose meee!

Good lock eve one

Thanks to my wife's phone getting stolen, and having to upgrade early, I'm six months away from qualifying for an iPhone 5. I'd love one from!
