I don’t know about you, but we are pretty pumped up about the iPhone 5 here at iDB. No doubt, everyone on the team will be getting one as soon as possible.

We wish every one of our readers could get their hands on an iPhone 5 too, but we understand that for obvious reasons, that might not be possible. Don’t worry though, because your friends at iDB have got your back. With that in mind, we decided to give away an iPhone 5 to one lucky winner…

To be completely clear, we’re not giving away a physical iPhone 5, but we are giving away a $200 Apple Store gift card that you can used towards the purchase of an iPhone 5. Wondering why we’re not giving away an actual iPhone 5? It’s all about logistics! There are just too many variables entailed (such as your carrier, your contract, your location, etc…), so we thought it’d be easier to give you the cash, and let your purchase the iPhone yourself.

Now that we’ve gotten the housekeeping stuff out of the way, let’s dive into the details of this awesome giveaway.

Who can enter?

Anyone, anywhere in the world can enter. There is no age or location restriction. If you’re old enough to use a mouse and do a right click, then consider yourself eligible for this iPhone 5 giveaway.

    You should pick me so I can keep in touch with my mom witch I need to
    know at all times how she is doing from a stroke she had. its the least
    I can do since she sacrificed many years of her young life to keep me
    alive and healthy

    It would be perfect since I just gave her my I-pad so I can communicate with her easy-er.
    Alot of time she cant figure out what she needs to say to me and
    being able to show me by sending a picture would be so much easy-er to
    show/tell me

    You should choose me because I’m still rocking my trusty old 3GS and it’s starting to be a little ragged up (headphone jack doesn’t work, random respringing, gps not working… just to name a few)!
    I’ve had it since 3years now and we’ve been thru a lot! And since I’ll be moving to Austria to start my studies now, a phone that I could fully trust on would be essential! A new country, a new city and a whole new life a head of me. What better tool could I wish for than the new iPhone 5?

    I don’t know how you’d pick the winner and i don’t know how i’d use the apple gift card here in the Philippines (we don’t have a local apple store), but what the heck, just pick me and i’ll find a way. Been an iphone user since 3g.

    Im no teenager or a middle age worker who wants this iPhone 5 . Im A certified senior citizen and Im proud of it. Im not that techie, to tell you the Truth, I ask and seek help of my Nephew just to type this word by word which is straight from my mouth. Why would a 60 something years old want with the iPhone? Simple, the thrill, the awe, and surprised I would get when Ill get my hands on this. Out of pure curiosity I wanna know why people fall in line just to get this gadget or awaits the yearly event of apple. Granted that I get my hands on this, Im sure as the day passes I could unlock the mysteries I want to know with this phone. Who said I dont deserve this because of my age, Me too wanna be technologically updated and be called Grandma Techie!

    You should pick me because of how much I appreciate the work that you all do! I am so glad I stumbled upon Jeffs youtube videos because it opened me up to the world of iDB. iDB is my number one source of apple news. And by far has the best posts, and some of the best writers! I love iDB so much that I literally wrote an application so that I can see your RSS, Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube all in one place. (I can prove that I made it! I posted a video on youtube.). For that reason I believe that I deserve to win this giveaway! Without it, I can’t get the new iPhone 🙁
    Thanks so much for just reading this! Even if I don’t win.

    I would love to have an iPhone because I never had an iPhone and only did most modding and hacking on my iPod Touch 4G. Wanted to join this giveaway so that I could have a new device to toy with. 🙂

    You should pick me, not because I am the poorest or the most Mac enthused but simply because I am just ecstatic about the new features of the new iPhone 5!

    Also, I currently use my iPhone 4 for everything from work to social. I am a spinning instructor who uses my iPhone and apps to plan and teach all of my classes, a larger screen to view the workouts and my cues would be super helpful for both myself and the participants.

    Thanks!

    im a second medical student with iphone 3g on my hand. i never could get an iphone 4 or 4s because i had to save money for my life expense and school. im not ashamed of my phone , but i wish if i could have this phone.

  • twitter: pleaseunfolowme
    facebook: IHaveNeverWonAnything

    Pretty much you should pick me because my wife is due Oct 20th and I need a new camera! And I have never won anything. Simple equation follows:

    (pregnant wife + never won anything) * new baby expenses = no money for gadgets

    You should pick me even though I already ordered my own iPhone 5, I would like to get one for my wife. We are both full time students plus I have a full time job so we rarely ever get to see each other. It would be nice to be able to talk over Facetime with her and our kids when I’m at work late at night. I miss talking to them a lot but we’re both doing everything we can to make ends meet due to the horrible year we’ve had… long story. Please choose me, we could really use this.

    There is no good reason why to be selfish and impress you with few words to pick me. If that phone has to be mine it will be, othervise it won’t. 50-50%. But I really would like to have one as it’s very expensive here. So I add an extra 25% to the math, so now it’s 75-25%. Simple as that. :))

    Hi……you asked for a reason to pick one person to be the winner…..the truth is there is no real reason to choose somebody to be the winner…….you decide whoever you want to be the winner……and if i have to give you a reason it would be…..you have to choose me because i know the way you’re thinking 🙂
