It would appear that the Fast and Free 3G iPhone giveaway is done for.


One cannot purchase a 3G iPhone without having to activate it in-store, and you cannot buy it online.

This would leave chris with one remaining option if said rumours are true.


Chris would have to send the winner $200, and then that user would have to purchase one for him/herself.


Any thoughts?

By the way - I think I've had quite a few "quality" posts, and IF the rumours are not true, then this opens up a whole new spectrum for it.

If monkeysrock or psychology or myself win, we can do it that way, or jailbreak/hacktivate/unlock it.

It says in the original contest that you get an Apple store gift card (Plus an iTunes gift card) . (In an amt up to 399. depending cost of the 3g iPhone). It says in the new thread it will be 199.

I'm biased. I think it'll somewhat suck if one of our regulars don't win. There. I said it.

On the same note, it'll rock it Chris does another contest (said he might) just for the top 30 or so posters. Or a minumum post of 500... I dunno. Just rambling.

While that'd be very nice, the point of the contest was to generate memberships - one thing us regular DON'T do well :p

Speak for yourself. I've written down the site address on the back of my businesss card and have given it to a LOT of my clients (well every one that had an iPhone). Probably half a dozen or more so far.

I feel dorky enough doing that, so I don't bother asking for them to credit me with a referral :p

I'd like to know who won the contest. I can't find it anywhere, and he said we would all know at 1:00. It's now 2:20!

He needs to wait to hear from the winners, who were notified by mail. They have 24 hours.

Yeah, but you would think that whomever is in the running would anxious to know if they won and would check their email ASAP. C'mon, a free iPhone! At least we know we didn't win, eh?

I'm sure many have forgotten. If some of the winners are one-offs, so to speak, we may have a second round of drawings.
