May 11 marks the anniversary of the original Phone different and the iPhone blog's transformation and merger into -- the all new TiPb! To celebrate, we'll be counting down and giving away fabulous prizes including iPhone accessories from the iMore Store, promo codes for some of our favorite iPhone apps, gift certificates, and and grand prize big enough to blow our previous contests away!

The Birthday Bash officially kicks off Thursday, May 7, and will take place primarily on our TiPb iPhone Forums. If you haven't already, get over there, register now and start posting. To help you get started we're even going to run a little pre-celebration contest contest!

No, that's not a typo. We're going to be running so many contests next week, we're running out of ideas for them! That's where we can use your help:

  • Go to the TiPb Birthday Bash: Pre-Celebration Contest Contest! thread on the forums
  • Tell us your best, most favorite idea for a contest. (i.e. caption a funny photo, write an iPhone haiku, etc.)
  • Keep it short, simple, and sweet. (We have the big stuff covered, but you can help us fill in the rest).
  • If we pick your idea, we'll thank you with a $20 iTunes Gift Card (US or Canada stores only).
  • We may need several ideas, so don't be shy! Bring 'em on!

Whatcha waiting for? Get going! The countdown to the Birthday Bash Countdown starts now!
