Giveaway: Motorola DROID RAZR and DROID BIONIC

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 252, Still have it. It was a TracFone and I'm pretty sure it didn't have text messaging on it. But I was in middle school and had to have a cellphone.
