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



Congratulations Timberwolf!

Would be amazing to win the iPhone 5, your coverages are just awesome, especially the iOS 6 review.

If I could upgrade early I would but I could win a iPhone 5 I know a special somebody that will love their practically new (don't call it a hand-me-down) iPhone 4s.

Hope I win an iPhone 5, as does my fiancee who dislikes the idea of me spending more money on it when I already have a 4s.

Does the content of the comment have any bearing on the chances of winning? I hope not. Unless asking increases the chances. Then I hope so. Where's my Ritalin?

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. :)

Wow! Congrats to Timberwolf. And Congrats to whoever is going to win the 2nd Rd!
Please hook it up so I can use teh iPhone 5! :-)

I'm really grateful for this opportunity to win, but more than anything, I want you guys and gals to know that you provide a real service with your high quality content and great personalities, all in a very timely fashion. Longtime MobileNations fan/subscriber . . . since the TreoCentral days!

Hi I appreciate the opportunity that you are giving us to win a iPhone 5! I think it would be very neat to win a iPhone and be able to use Siri, and play with all the apps available. It would also be my first smart phone and that would be super cool to have an iPhone. Well thanks and good luck to all.

I never liked iPhone 4/4s very small screen. But iPhone 5 (what a desing) how comfortable it can be in hands. Thank you APPLE and IMORE for this opportunities.

If i dont win, Denzel Washington from Training Day will find me and do not so nice things to me, then Denzel from Safe House will finish the job...PLEASE...HELP!

Congrats to the winner! I love the iPhone and have been anxious to get my hands on the new iPhone 5. I hope to be the next person to win! out this poor college student still rocking his iPhone 3G, and still stuck on iOS 4. I know, its depressing.

saurabh agarwal is my name...i am here to win the contest n i am sure that i'll win the contest for of luck buddies bcoz ur father is here... admin just email me that i have won....:P... just kidding 3:) i hope i'll win

Please, Please, please.. I want to give it to my Mom as an early Xmas present. She can't afford to buy one, but would love the surprise of a new iPhone 5. We only see each other once-twice a year as we live 12 hrs apart and I'd love to show up with a new iPhone 5 when I go see her in October.

I'm disappointed I didn't win, but will happily try again. And I find iOS6 and the map service to be pretty good, I hated no turn by turn nav from googles half baked app

Prayerfully I'll receive the second iPhone 5 that's being given away. If not, then I'll just have to save up to buy myself one instead.

Hi guys! :D I didn't win the first time but I think you guys are awesome for giving us another chance! Hope I win hehe. :D

i hope i win... since i already preordered mine, this is going to be my brother's christmas present... if i win... but i probably wont win

I still can't wait to get my hands on iPhone 5!! Sweet of you to give a second chance!!! Thanks for the contest.
Congrats to Timberwolf!

I was diagnosed with a rare disease called LOIP (Lack Of Iphone). The Dr. said the only cure is a shiny new iPhone 5. The life you save could be mine!

Please, please let me get rid of my buggy Galaxy S3(which I gave up my 4S for). I haven't regretted a decision this much since my junior prom

I love all apple devices and i have wished of having an iphone because my dad has an iphone and i always asked him to use it and i fell in love with it and it would be a dream come true.

I love to get all the latest news and rumors from iMore! Its hard to budget for a new phone right now so I would love to win this one!!

I`t don`t hurt to try. I once won a free ticket on a scratch off. That is about all the luck I have. The best luck I ever did have in the past are my two beautiful kids. Have a great night to all and good luck.
