The prizes? Smartphones, of course! Here's what was up for grabs in the latest giveaway and who won it...

Different laws and rules apply in different countries (plus different phones and networks and shipping rates) so trying to do an international competition takes a lot more time, money, and effort than a relatively local one. Not only that, the phones were for sprint which is US-only.

Yaa.. If I had won then I would pay the shipping cost.. :p

You know what, calling other countries s**t tells a lot about the person you are. You may not like them but not all of them living there are douches, which I think you are based on your irrational hatred of BlackBerry and these countries which you regularly call third world and s**t.

lol are you north koreans? why are you offended? yes they are, people who live in north korea are douches and not considered as a human being, Nuff said

37. No_Nonsense (Posts: 826; Member since: 17 Aug 2012)


Get your s**t together. Oh really, not considered human beings by whom? You? You aren't the parameter for anything, you haven't done anything worth mentioning other than commenting here. It's North Korea's leader that sucks and the last time I checked, not everyone is a douche. As a matter of fact, yeah, someone with no credentials ever, with a history of blindly disregarding facts and hating something/someone which/who have considerably achieved than what you have, and calling other countries s**t, irrespective of me living there or not, tells a lot about your thinking and level of maturity.
