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


Here it is. The moment you've all been waiting for. We're announcing the winner of the FREE iPhone 5 from iMore... And we're giving everyone else a 2nd chance to win! Are you ready? Are you set?

Find out who won, and how YOU can still win... after the break!



Congratulations Timberwolf! We'll be in touch via email to get your information for the prize!

EVERYONE ELSE: Keep reading, because you're not done yet!

Tomorrow is iPhone 5 day! We know a lot of you are lining up at the stores to be among the first to get your hands on Apple's latest creation. Some of us will be there too. We also know not everyone can upgrade right now, so here's what we've got for you.

We're giving away ANOTHER free iPhone 5 to ANOTHER lucky iMore reader!

That's right! FREE. No strings attached. All you have to do is be a registered member of iMore and leave a comment below. You have one week to get your entry in, so get to it! We will announce the lucky winner next week here on the blogs.

The rules: One comment per person. If we find you trying to cheat and enter multiple times, you will be disqualified. The contest is open worldwide, so anyone can enter. And the prize is just the phone, any contract and accessories are the responsibility of the winner. Good luck!

Eejay says:

Not that I'm begging, but I would really like to be chosen. My daughter is a sophomore in high school and last year she worked really hard to earn a 4.0 GPA. She made the Girls Varsity Basketball team (one of two freshman that did) and started at point guard until she popped her shoulder out of socket during a game and had to ride the bench for a couple months and do physical therapy. She eventually was able to play again and was on fire versus the rival team in our city when her shoulder popped out again. Her season was over. I think she really deserves this -- for doing so well scholastically and for rehabbing herself back to basketball shape. She's ready for the challenges of this school year and is itching to get back on the court and bring the 1st State Championship in Girls Basketball for her school! I'm very proud of her and I think she would love the new iPhone!

captobie says:

While there's still hope, I'll keep trying. Anyway, thanks iMore for providing a brand new iPhone for your readers.
