I'll root / jailbreak my new phone then jump around and enjoy my newfound freedom.

I'd be obnoxious and text my friends just to let them know I'm texting them from my shiny new phone ;)

If it's android root it and add a custom rom if its an iphone keep it as a backup
362. KurtDawg (Posts: 10; Member since: 31 Jul 2012)

372. 81mmMarine (Posts: 1; Member since: 25 Mar 2013)
The first thing I would do is put it on my account immediately. Right now I have the Galaxy Nexus and I love this phone but the battery life is not known to be the best. Come on I need to win this!!!
373. ScelesticSteve (Posts: 26; Member since: 29 Mar 2012)
I would download several apps to the phone and test the network capabilities. Of course booking Phone Arena as my favorites' like I have on my phone right now.
374. Izzy_V (Posts: 216; Member since: 07 Jul 2012)
I'd use the S3, probably sell or trade either of the iphones.
375. SprintGuy26 (Posts: 179; Member since: 21 Mar 2011)

added note: Sprint service all the way!!!!
376. lilg29 (Posts: 89; Member since: 14 Sep 2011)
I would give the s3 to my grandma to be honest, and i'd keep the iphone 5. My mom and i already have gs3's i think we need to be a galaxy s3 family ^_^
377. papajohn (Posts: 25; Member since: 07 Dec 2010)
if i win one of the Apple iphones i will give it to my son because his iphone camera broke.
if i win the GS III I get rid of my Droid X phone.
380. GaIaxyS (Posts: 4; Member since: 03 Dec 2012)
If I won the Galaxy S III I would give it to my brother for his birthday. He's been wanting a new phone and this phone is exacly what he wants.

"What is the first thing you'll do with your new smartphone, in case you win one?"
If its the GS3, I'll probably be setting up a google account followed by gmail. Then I'd install swiftkey, whatsapp, pulse, aldiko, astro, alarm clock xtreme, amazon appstore, opera, evernote & msecure. After that I'd play with the camera.
If it's the iphone, probably download a bunch of games i've been wanting to try out.
382. randeepsamra (Posts: 29; Member since: 03 Mar 2012)
I will fill it to brim with apps. Yup install apps and use it.
383. mphonearena (Posts: 1; Member since: 25 Mar 2013)
The first thing I would do if I won one of those phones would is of course use it. I have visited this website for about 3 years now; but due to bad circumstances, I do not own a smartphone. Though I know everything about smartphones and such. Winning one of them would be amazing!.
384. lorensogarcia (Posts: 1; Member since: 25 Mar 2013)
I would swap it for the phone i have. I have sprint and they're all better than my current phone.
385. hrrsncrawford786 (Posts: 3; Member since: 31 Jul 2012)
The first thing I will do is activate one on my mom's account so she can be updated with new technology!
386. Forsaken77 (Posts: 552; Member since: 09 Jun 2011)
The first thing I'd do with the new phone is to take a picture of myself and send it to all my contacts, bragging about my new shiny gadget.
387. smokey18 (Posts: 7; Member since: 12 Dec 2011)
i would use it of course i n eed a new phone bad lol
389. samnote (Posts: 33; Member since: 02 Mar 2012)

390. Abbath (Posts: 99; Member since: 16 Sep 2012)
okay so the rest of the world doesn't exist then eh?
391. melan26 (Posts: 12; Member since: 10 Aug 2012)
The first thing I'll do if I win is to give it to my mom, she doesn't own one.
392. radji (Posts: 16; Member since: 26 Mar 2012)
First thing I would do with an SGS3 or iPhone is give it to my mom. Her HTC Desire quit on her a while back and she is now having to use her old Samsung flip phone. She deserves to have a good reliable phone.
393. bballermoon (Posts: 3; Member since: 27 Apr 2012)
the first thing that i would do is, i would instagram them and put them on facebook.
394. dmbatson (Posts: 3; Member since: 17 May 2012)
Move all my info to it and start setting up apps. Call and tell my family and take pics and post them thanking Phone Arena and RadioShack.
395. Kude_1 (Posts: 4; Member since: 26 Mar 2013)
I'd take a few hundred photos. Camera I have now isn't so hot. :'(
396. krishelnino (Posts: 5; Member since: 29 Nov 2011)
I would enjoy the smell of a new phone out of the box for few minutes. Then of course check its sratch and drop resistance.
399. afnanrahman (Posts: 15; Member since: 09 Dec 2011)
I will buy a case for it. Then get a screen protector!
400. JeebusSK (Posts: 1; Member since: 26 Mar 2013)
If I Won, I would hope to win the SIII and I would find all the apps I couldn't run before because my curent smartphone was (is) too slow or weak to push the latest apps.
401. amitbiswal1 (Posts: 1; Member since: 25 Mar 2013)
It's not fair, what will happen to global members of Phonearena.....why it is restricted to US members only....it feels left out..!!!
403. doonroy (Posts: 10; Member since: 19 Nov 2012)
The first thing I would do would be take a photo of myself with the phone camera and upload it onto facebook! btw hope this giveaway is not some April fools trick.
405. cburgess40 (Posts: 1; Member since: 26 Mar 2013)
Well I never won anything before so this would be great. Honestly, I would want a Samsung S III but I would sell it since its on Sprint and buy it for AT &T as I'm on an unlimited plan. Unfortunately, Sprint doesn't work well in my area :-(
406. projektorboy (Posts: 11; Member since: 09 Nov 2011)
I'm aiming to get an SGS3 because I'd like to use it as a development device and cook up my first ROM
407. fistigons (Posts: 318; Member since: 11 Feb 2012)
I would install Talk a Tone or Groove ip and call my mom from afghanistan since all we have is wifi here.
408. itsdeepak4u2000 (Posts: 3696; Member since: 03 Nov 2012)
Insert my sim card and will make a call after starting it...
409. ix3ph09 (Posts: 7; Member since: 13 Feb 2012)
I would give it to someone as a present since I don't have Sprint.
410. jian9007 (Posts: 22; Member since: 20 Nov 2012)
After the obvious (charge it), I would make some calls to see how the call quality is. I actually still talk on my phone so it's the first thing I check.
411. corbx (Posts: 1; Member since: 26 Mar 2013)
Since I'm already on Sprint I would add a new line and make a good friend happy.
412. millercory89 (Posts: 3; Member since: 16 Oct 2011)
If it's an Iphone I win, first thing I'll have to do is learn a completely new OS/interface....guess I might need to get used to not having a back button!
413. AFnerdTP (unregistered)
414. zonam (Posts: 20; Member since: 27 Apr 2012)
first thing i do is install my favorite apps... currents, google maps, drive etc.
415. brokenchains (Posts: 17; Member since: 28 Nov 2012)
Regardless of which phone, if I win this contest I will take a picture of my old and busted phone with the new hotness. I will then bluetooth that picture to my old phone, display it on the screen, and boot that mofo off a bridge - all just to shame it before I dump it.
Or more likely is I'll just switch the new phone onto my plan and put the old one in my closet.
416. unclespoon (Posts: 1; Member since: 26 Mar 2013)
I would either root or jailbreak the phone and load tons of custom stuff to make it mine! It would be glorious! Then I would use it to share your website on facebook ;)
417. xXMAKESHIFTXx (Posts: 38; Member since: 28 Jul 2012)
The first thing I would do if I won the iPhone 5 is download Gmail! Oh pick me, pick me!!
418. chopinsky (Posts: 3; Member since: 17 Dec 2012)
The first thing is to set up email accounts, sync contacts and download apps.
419. nodnarb (Posts: 35; Member since: 27 Apr 2012)
i would download a ton of apps and test the processor while at high performance. then compare it to my current phone and see which is better.
