Giveaway: Samsung Galaxy S II AT&T and Motorola ATRIX 2

Giveaway: Samsung Galaxy S II AT&T and Motorola ATRIX 2
For a third week in a row now, PhoneArena and RadioShack are giving you the chance to get your hands on some pretty cool Android smartphones, for free! First, it was two lucky Verizon users who won a Motorola DROID RAZR and a DROID BIONIC. Last week, two Sprint customers had a chance to snatch the mighty Samsung Galaxy S II Epic 4G Touch and Motorola PHOTON 4G, and guess what - it's now time to take care of AT&T users! For those two lucky fellows, what we have here are a Samsung Galaxy S II AT&T, and a Motorola ATRIX 2, waiting for their new owners.

[img right [[57541]] /]As you probably already know, this month (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 phone, upon purchasing a new one. Of course, you can trade-in all kinds of working gear: phones, cameras, MP3 players, etc., so you not only get rid of old tech and make a few bucks along the way, but you also help keep the environment clean. 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 Galaxy S II AT&T or ATRIX 2! 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. Post your answer as a comment to this post using the comment section below!

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 (May 2) and will be contacted via the email address that they used to register on

*Update May 2nd* - We have drawn the lucky winners and have contacted them via email. Congratulations to Demario and Jeffery!

Sanyo Katana II. It was an awesome phone back then. After I upgraded, I handed my Katana to my father and he dropped it in the toilet so now it's dead inside one of his desk drawers. Tears.

Wife and I both had a Samsung SPH-A740. Still kept one because the "upgrade" to the 640 had worse signal.

My own first phone was the Motorola Razr in Silver. Begged my parents for my own phone instead of always borowing theirs or using home phone. Still have it in my closet. Never tried selling it as I was young, and now, I would have to lose money if I sell it, so it just continues to sit in my closet.

My first cellular phone was the Motorola DynaTAC 8000x ultra portable cellular phone (HAHAHA - this thing was a brick and needed a wagon to tote around). This device was amazing not only for its durability but for its signal reception. I still have it today and use it quite frequently as a doorstop, or as a tire wedge for my car, or an anchor for my boat. When it's not in use, it serves as a great paperweight too for those windy days (it weighs a ton). And frequently I carry it around as a self-defense weapon (great for clunking an attacker over the head). Look, I paid almost $4,000 for this thing - I'm getting good use out of this thing even if it cannot be used with todays technology. Viva-La-Brick-Phone!!!!!..............

My first phone was the Samsung P107. I loved that little flip phone. It had that awesome swivel camera and a color screen. It survived being drowned and the battery needed to be taped on cause the little slide clip broke but it kept working. I got it somewhere stored away in a box.
