Congratulations to Timberwolf! I would love to receive the new iPhone 5. It won't be for me, but it will be for my dad. His birthday is coming up, and I want to get him something special. Winning this iPhone will make that happen. He's the greatest guy you can ever meet, he's my inspiration for working hard and following my goals. He really is the #1 Dad in the world. And, I am lucky to have him.

So iMore, I would love to win the iPhone 5. But even if I don't it's okay. iMore is still the best when it comes to providing any news that is related to Apple. And just for that I want to say thank you! You always provide us with relevant and useful information, so keep up the good work.

Thank you, and I HOPE I can win this iPhone 5. :)
