HTC lets you win a new smartphone each Friday (US only)

HTC today kicked off a sweepstakes dubbed "Free Fone Fridays", allowing folks in the US to win a smartphone each Friday - until the end of the year. Today, November 4, HTC is giving away a One M9. That's obviously not the newest phone around, but winning one wouldn't hurt, right?

To enter HTC's Free Fone Fridays, all you have to do is visit the company's official website (link included at the end of this article) and submit your contact details. You can participate each week, until the last Friday of the sweepstakes (December 30). The sweepstakes is open to all residents of the United States who are at least 18 years old. It's not open to "non-natural persons" - which may sound like it means ghosts or who knows what, but it actually refers to "corporations and other business entities." Good to know.

The first HTC Free Fone Fridays entry period ends today at 11:59 p.m. PST, and the next one begins on Saturday. Good luck!

HTC M9 is still a good phone and I'm fairly certain it has the revised version of the SD810, which doesn't overheat as much as the original.

Yep, probably much cheaper than to just give them away than to have to pay for storage on inventory that won't ever sell off.

Winning a free phone is still not worth being on Facebook or Twitter.

That's what fake accounts are for.
