Win a Motorola DROID RAZR from Verizon and PhoneArena!

Win a Motorola DROID RAZR from Verizon and PhoneArena!
Guess what, people - we obtained a very special object from Verizon - a locked safe, containing a brand new Motorola DROID RAZR. And, as you can imagine, you are the ones who will have to find out what the unlock code is, and tell it to us, so that we can get that RAZR out of there and ship it over to the first of you who's guessed the correct combination. All of this is part of a Verizon campaign, which has the purpose to promote the latest and greatest Android smartphone out of Moto's camp.

But let's stick to the story: the Operative, a secret agent character who has been posting audio messages on the @DroidLanding Twitter channel for a while, has sent us one of four safes, containing a Motorola DROID RAZR.

In addition to the safe, this mysterious figure also handed us four clues, which will help you find out what the correct 4-digit combination for the safe is. In order for these clues to be of any use, however, you'll have to listen to the said audio messages by the Operative, found on @DroidLanding.

Here's what you have to do to win the DROID RAZR:

1. Find out what the correct code for the safe is;
2. Be the first to post it as a comment to this article;
3. Verizon will tell us that your guess is right, and we'll then unlock the safe, because we obviously don't know what the combination is :-(
4. We'll announce that you're the winner (in this post), and ship the DROID RAZR to you.

Here's the audio message we received from the Operative, it's cool:


**UPDATE**
And we have a winner people! First and foremost, we'd like to say thanks to everyone for playing, and Verizon Wireless for providing everyone the opportunity of winning this awesome smartphone. So without further delay, the winner is PhoneArena reader Kurt Larson (krtlarson). Congrats to him and we'll make sure that he receives his brand new DROID RAZR as fast as possible!!



Please note that the contest is open to legal residents of the 50 United States and the District of Columbia, 18 years of age and older as of 11/8/2011. For all the other terms and conditions associated with the contest, visit this link.

that also says 'epoxy impregnated strands'. as well as giving tensile strength in two different units. hmmm.

Thanks for the support. But there's no winner until they announce it. :)

Yeah it will be interesting because there are plenty of "state capitals" that it could have been referring to. If you won though congrats man! I personally thought it was referring to Richmond since that is the location the coordinates pointed to.

ok, i'm pissed @droidlanding didn't tweet this until 10:45 AM EST. Makes me think phonearena.com jumped the gun.

The initial call-in clue gave us an image with GPS coordinates of 37.450437N, 77.441189W which lead to Richmond, VA - founded in 1737 - 2nd digit = 7 Another call-in clue mentioned that they were about 1 hour west of SLC (Salt Lake City, capital city of Utah) = 1 Flight plan document received after a voice clue indicated that there were 7 persons aboard = 7 Kevlar's tensile strength is 3,620 MPa - 3rd digit = 2 For verification 7+1+7+2 = 17 Thanks PhoneArena! Thanks DroidLanding! Thanks Verizon! I'll be looking forward to more contests like this in the future!

I guess we will see if you go by the actual Kevlar tensile strength that is everywhere but wikipedia (what is taught in classes) is 3600

I agree that there's definitely confusion about the tensile strength of kevlar, but the state capitol looks to be true. Either way, congratulations to the winner. :) and thank you Verizon and motorola. You know how to pull off the best contests.

I completely agree with you on the discrepancy... but they want the total to be 17, and the audio clue does say 1 hour west of SLC so the only combo that "fits" should be 7172

tensile strength doesnt matter. the last clue on all of them were meant to "add up" to something. get the first 3 right from the original tweets and the last is a given.

and you were the 2nd person to post that combo, so no dice for you even if that is correct. any ideas what other blogs got the contest?

Last digit should be zero according to the official dupont kevlar manual, I hope its right!
