Giveaway: Motorola DROID RAZR and DROID BIONIC
We really can't think of too many things in this world that are cooler than purchasing a new phone, but one of those rare activities does come to mind right now, and it's winning a new phone, through a giveaway, just like this one! Yeah, getting the latest technology in your hands without having to spend a dime is certainly cooler than slaughtering your piggy bank, and we're happy to tell you that thanks to our buddies from RadioShack, two of you have the chance to win a new handset. What we have here to give away are a Motorola DROID RAZR and a DROID BIONIC - both being extremely capable and contemporary Android smartphones. All of this is made possible because of RadioShack's Mobile Makeover Month initiative. And here's what it's all about...

Giveaway: Motorola DROID RAZR and DROID BIONIC
In case you didn't know, this April (1-28) is RadioShack's Mobile Makeover Month, which aims to help you get rid of some unused technology by guaranteeing a minimum $30 (and a maximum $300) trade-in value for your old gadget, upon purchasing a new one. You can trade-in all kinds of working gear: phones, cameras, MP3 players, etc., so no matter what old tech you have lying around, it should be good for at least a $30 store credit. Of course, there are the usual restrictions to this promotion, which you can check out in the press release below. You can trade your old device in at a retail RadioShack location, or online here, where you can also determine the value of your device.


And now for the fun part - the one that may get you a brand new DROID RAZR or BIONIC! Here's what you have to do:

1. Think of an answer to the following question: "What was your very first phone, and is it still lying around?"

2. If you haven't already, please Like our Facebook page, and post your answer as a comment to the picture that you'll find through this link.



And that's it, you've now entered the game and have a chance to win! The two lucky fellows will be chosen randomly next Wednesday (April 18) and will be contacted via a private message in Facebook.

*Update April 18th 2012* We've drawn the two winners; Anthony and Chris, please check your private messages!

Here's a promo video by RadioShack for more details about its Mobile Makeover Month:

My 1st cell phone was an LG TM-510. Worked well and had it for a long time. Don't have it anymore because the hinge snapped.

I refuse to Facebook so I guess I'm out of the giveaway, but I'll still share my first phone here anyhow. Stationed in Korea back in '99, my first phone was a prepaid G2 phone by Hanwha. The retailer had to write the instructions down in English for me on a post-it to attach to the interior of the flip cover.
Sadly, it did not survive an around-the-world Myung Jin [drunk] bus trip back to my post. Still have it's replacement in storage though.

My first cell phone was through AT&T and it was constructed of a long clothes line with paper cups on either end. And, yes, still used by AT&T; it's their flagship device.

Motorola W376g (basically the Motorola RAZR, except with a worse camera, a lot thicker and uglier, and on Tracfone), and I could probably find it if I tried hard enough, but I don't believe it works

Samsung SCH-A650! It was an extremely tiny no camera having silver flip phone with the best cell reception I have ever had! I lost that phone twice and it came back to me! One time it fell off the back of my brother's vehicle bumper where I left it and ended up on the interstate while we were on the way from Louisiana back to Alabama and a road worker found it and actually mailed it back to me! One of the hinges was a little damaged but it got me through to my next upgrade!

Nokia bar phone when I was 16 years old, got it all on my own and paid for it myself. (my parents weren't a fan of it, but when my sister turned 14 she got a phone for free ee -_-). I don't have it around anymore. Gave it to my brother as a gift and he lost it.

The Kyocera KWC 2135 with Verizon was my first phone back in 2002 during my freshman year of high school. That phone was taken away so often by teachers because it was so thick I couldnt conceal it in my pockets well enough without teachers knowing it. Suprisingly I still have it, I should put it in a time capsule just so some kid can find it be amazed.
