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



Ok if at first u don't succeed... Come on big money.... Help a collee student out here.. Let me live with a life of student loans and a nice iPhone

I'd really like to win this amazing iPhone!
Congratulation to Timberwolf, now is my turn ;) hahahahah
Thanks anyway!!!

I have used Android for over 3 years and want to jump on the iPhone train but am short on cash at the moment. MAKE ME A BELIEVER!!!!

Well one more try.....this is for real!!! don't forget to send me an e-mail with the news of me winning the second one!!

It would be nice to actually win something for a change. (Coming from someone who has never won one of these contests.)

Okay il let you away with that one. Well done timberwolf. Although take a pity on a guy who won't get an upgrade til 2014.

Coming from Android and cant wait to get in the Apple ecosystem. I would love to get rid of my SG3 cause the "NEXT BEST THING" is coming tomorrow. And its not plastic!!

Aww sugar snaps! Did that read M3gga? i don't have my eye glasses on. Anyways, lets try for a round two knock out!

The world has become a global village...I am from one of remote places of India called Kashmir
By the way ios 6 has quite a good features but has some small bugs also
e.g The contacts which have been synced from facebook can't be deleted.

I'd love to win this its not going to be available in my country for at least a month from tomorrow, love what you've been doing with this website

Thanks for the 2nd opportunity, I'd love to be able to finally upgrade my iphone from a 3g to a 5.

My offer still stands to take that 5 off your hands. I'm even willing to wear my Imore t-shirt everyday in appreciation.

Hoping to be picked. I have found iMore to be a great site for all kind of help and information so having these contests is just a bonus!!

I'm due to give birth in the next couple of days. I can't really afford one right now, let alone stand in line.

Hello everybody from buenos aires, impatiently waiting till November 22 when I go to the us and get the unlocked iPhone 5

Pretty please with a cherry on top pick me :) I've been a faithful reader of imore/theiphoneblog for a really long time :D

Oh please pick me. I can't afford a new phone. My dad has a rate kidney disease and my son has retinal blastoma(cancer of the eye). I work 12-14 hour days 7 days a week so I can pay for everything. I broke my phone and of course I was trying to save one and I didn't get the insurance so I have no phone and I can't afford a new one. Good luck to the winner.

Congratulations @Timberwolf! I hope I win it this time!!! I've never won anything before! It would be amazing!

Pick me and I can get my wife the phone she wants. Cuz then she can put the girly case on it and tape a review on it!

2nd chances are great...I've not new to iPhone but a free phone is a free phone...lets make it 32gb Black....thx guys...

All who comment are worthy of winning the iphone 5 from imore. Thats to be sure. I'd be grateful if I were the lucky forum member to win the 2nd phone. But to whomever i slucky enough to win it, I say congratulations to you in advance.

I'm looking to switch from my Galaxy Nexus to the iPhone 5...I can't really think of an easier way than just by winning.

I would e forever grateful to iMore if I won!!! And I really need a new iPhone! If I could post a pic of my old iPhone you would agree!
Please Please PLEASE!!! ;o)

Thank you for your consideration!

I am a long time fanboy and I would love a new iPhone 5, especially because I am a very broke grad student. Thanks for the chance.
