iPhone 3G Contest – iPhone Alley’s Winter Break iPhone 3G Giveaway

School’s out for most of you high school and college kids, so it’s giveaway time! Up for grabs is an iPhone 3G Gift Card pre-loaded with $200 to buy yourself a shiny new iPhone 3G. If you’re after a 16GB, the gift card can be used towards the purchase of a more expensive model. We’ll also be offering three Incase Slider cases for the runners up.

Here’s the dealio: Over the course of 30 days, every post made in the forums counts as one entry into the contest. At the end of the contest, we’ll pick the winner randomly from the pool of entries. Each post is an entry, so the more you post, the greater chance you’ll have of winning. After the grand prize winner is selected, we’ll draw for the Incase Sliders. Slider case winners will get to specify color and iPhone model.

The contest starts on December 12th at Midnight Pacific Time and ends on January 10th at Midnight Pacific. The exhaustive list of details follow after the jump. Happy posting!

Don’t think you can simply post garbage. We’ll be watching each post closely and only quality posts will be counted. Spammers will be banned!
