  • The problem with contests like this is that, if you win, you're likely to get an AT&T phone, which really sucks if you are on any other carrier, especially if you're on Sprint or Verizon.Then the phone is ZERO use, I am not going to switch to the worst US carrier's network to use a free phone.
  • Well with the message you have to include you get about 7 characters to use... But hey a free phone would be great I'd love a Focus S :D
  • wait so, if u win, are they also paying your 2 year contract?
  • No.
  • so much for winning. All the moola will go towards cp bills.
  • It's possible they could be unlocked. Or one could unlock it.
  • This contest rules does not make any sense. It says that each day there will be a "word" of the day. Huh? It then says they will contact winner by email, phone or mailing address. How are they going to do that with Twitter?
  • If you win they send a tweet and ask you to DM them.
