iPhone 3G Contest – Post and Win A Free 16GB iPhone 3G On Us

I’d say it’s high time we held our first contest here at iPhone Alley, and so we’re starting off with a bang. To be precise, we’re giving away a brand new 16GB iPhone 3G. Yarly.

Here’s the dealio: Over the course of 30 days, every post made in our 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. But 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. If you don’t win the iPhone, we still have one runner-up prize. The second name drawn will receive a Marware Sport Grip of either the 3G or original variety, depending on the winner’s preference.

The contest starts on June 16th at Midnight Pacific Time and ends on July 16th at Midnight Pacific. The exhaustive list of details follow after the jump. Happy posting!
