Nokia’s giving away a Lumia Icon and a trip to an iconic location (US only)

I can respect now wanting or needing a Facebook account. But I'd still probably create a dummy account just to enter contests like this that are through FB. 

Don't mean to hijack the thread, but I have never had one, and never will, despised it since 2003. I was in college then, and lambasted for not joining. IMO it was so "material" and "shallow." Look at my great life kinda stuff. So fake. Felt privileged to have never been on. That is all, thank you.

Well, it is.  It's unlocked but its destination market is Verizon.  Even the Chinese vendor who got its hands on early shipments have "Verizon" stamped all over them.

Yes.  Its intended market is the United States only.  It is a world phone, with GSM radios, so that the Verizon customer using it can use it when he travels out of the country, but the only legitimate target for this phone is Verizon customers.  Yes, I know that it is unlocked due to FCC regulation, and people will use it elsewhere, but that does not alter the fact that this phone is intended for Verizon customers.

S'ok, rather let someone who really wants it win it.  I'll stay on the sideline until a decent network capable file manager makes it to the OS.

Question: when you get ready to submit the entry, you get a notice saying that Nokia is getting access to your public profile (no problem) and your friend list (maybe a problem). Does this mean that you're giving Nokia permission to spam everyone on your friend list?

Entered.

Destination a bit unusual:  Cross country train.  Penn Station NYC to San Diego. Amtrak Lake Shore Limited from NYC to Chicago.  Southwest Chief Chicago to LA.  SurfLiner LA to San Diego.  Photo Ops to showcase the camera, downtime to enjoy video/music, and nationwide VZW.

US only whine whine... Are you guys ever going to realize that when it comes to technology, it's the only country that matters? OK, South Korea, Japan and China too... The rest are immaterial. Stop your whining.

Comments like this assist in causing people from other countries to have a lower opinion of Americans in general.

I went there and didn't see it :/ only a win a 1520 promo that when I enter it I'm told there are no live offers.

I tried....I know I wont win as I never win anything but, you never know.... A trip to Hawaii would be epic....Palm trees, blue water beaches, relaxing... I wish I could win this one...
