Giveaway: iPhone 5, Samsung Galaxy S III and iPhone 4S

Hold on to your rabbit's foot, go find some of them four-leaf clovers, and make sure you have a horseshoe nearby! It is time for another super-awesome #NewPhoneDay giveaway hosted by PhoneArena in partnership with RadioShack. Here's what we're giving away:

By the way, did you know that RadioShack has these three hot smartphones on sale? Yup, and they are currently being offered at temptingly low prices. Through April 4, customers can save $150 on a Samsung Galaxy S III with a new 2-year agreement with Sprint, while the Apple iPhone 5 and Apple iPhone 4S are both $50 off with a new 2-year Sprint contract. Customers can also take advantage of additional savings through RadioShack's Trade & Save program, which allows customers to apply the value of an old electronic device toward their new purchase. Plus, every phone purchased at RadioShack comes with free Mobile Product Support for the lifetime of the device.

  • For a chance to win a prize from the latest RadioShack giveaway, all you need to do is to post a comment below with your answer to the following question: "What is the first thing you'll do with your new smartphone, in case you win one?".

For more awesome giveaways like this one and tons of coverage every day, be sure to like our Facebook page and follow us on Twitter:

Five lucky participants will be drawn at random on April 1. That doesn't mean, however, that waiting until the last moment before entering the giveaway is a good idea. Post your comment now! Just don't even bother commenting twice hoping you'd have a better chance at winning. Only your first comment counts, further comments will be ignored during the drawing process.

This post will be updated with the chosen participants' usernames right after they are drawn. They will be contacted via the email they have registered with and must respond within 3 days in order to claim their prize! New participants will be picked for all prizes that are not claimed within the 3-day period.

If I won the S3, I would sell it as I already have one and my wife has a Note 2. If I won an apple novelty*t i dunno, whip it at an old person? See how far I can drive it on the golf range? Drag it behind my car for yucks? Not really much use for one...

don't have smartphone but i wish to buy it soon....i agree with her in some points such as I don’t have to worry too much about it being stolen and sometimes it's kind of boring to keep in touch with technology every single minute and we forgot why cell phone was invented to make communications easier, on the other hand smartphone has great functions and it's kind of treating yourself.

Well, if I were to win the Galaxy s3, I would use it's amazing features to rub it in other peoples faces. If I were to win an iPhone, I'd use the chance to try to get use to the new operating system, since I've always used Android.

Sell it to pay for the cracked screen replacement on my Note II, or give my girlfriend the S III so she can get rid of her 4S

First thing I'd do is the same thing I'd do with ANY phone I get for personal use. Put an invisibleshield on it because I love keeping my screen mint like a piece of Andes chocolate.

Sell it on Craigslist, make quick money before buying the Galaxy S4 for my birthday next month, and be one happy camper!

First thing I would do is to go to RadioShack and activate whichever phone I use! Then buy a screen protector from them!
