You could win a new Windows Phone, just ride the train

You could win a new Windows Phone, just ride the train
If you like trains, then hop a ride on Amtrak, take a few pictures and share them on Instagram. Toss in a couple of the ever necessary hashtags and you might score yourself a new Windows Phone.

For the remaining two entry periods, between February 18th to the 24th, and between February 25th to March 3rd, Amtrak will select a winner from photos posted to Instagram using hashtags #Amtrak and #WindowsPhone. You also need to follow @amtrak on Instagram.

The device being offered up to give away is not stated, but the retail price as noted on the Amtrak blog is $610.00. That probably means a Nokia Lumia 1020 or possibly a Lumia 1520 since this is a photo-centric contest. Either way, even a Lumia 925 or a Lumia 920 are not a bad freebies either.

Obviously, contests like this are for the US only. Amtrak has a number of routes throughout the country, and there are mobile apps for iOS, Android and Windows Phone. Official rules can be found at the Amtrak source link.

I don't think so. If you won this and it's not unlocked, you can sell it.

They know everyone would do that, so this must be a locked version.

You can unlock it, then sell it.

On an unrelated note, I saw quite a number of people using a Nokia Lumia 925 on the train yesterday

My point is that your point has no point in regard to my point.
