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?
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.
