    Was browsing online when I got this popup. Lol!
    64GB? Maybe.
    3.2MP? Rumored 5MP right?
    OLED - Doubtful, not enough supply
    Removable Battery - Nope
    And to top it all off, at the top where it normally says "3G" next to AT&T they've photoshopped in "4G" lol! AT&T has no 4G. That's straight up lying.
    They're not even close. Can they legally advertise you'll get this when they can't even confirm the specs?!
    Lol. Basically. AD FAIL

    That's pretty funny, actually.

    They even used the pre-3.0 3G indicator as a template.

    Not to mention the old SMS icon, what appears to be an old Notes icon and the old untextured icon for Phone.

    Not when it's on the status bar next to your carrier.

    lol i got a few spam comments on my youtube videos directed to this fake giveaway

    I also had comments like
    "I like the new iPhone's look, some of you reading this comment will not have enough money to buy it. Fortunately i discovered on Apple's Facebook that they are giving away iPhone 4Gs for free...."

    Who wastes their time in this ****??

    I feel I should mention that most of these things are actually legitimate. I've done many of them in my younger days.

    That being said, you must have a good eye for reading fine print. These guys are well covered by their fine print. They simply substitute what's given for what actually comes out.

    Yeah they are legitimate if you complete the required offers. But the fact that what they're supposedly offering you here is completely bogus is what gets me. Haha.

    3G didn't mean 3rd Gen... it was for 3G network.

    I love that it's apparently running OS3 as well. Guess apple aren't going to release OS4 on time...

    Oh and the 4G is priceless, simply priceless.

    No, many people don't and that's exactly how what these guys count on. They don't make anywhere near enough money to give everybody who participates a prize. They count on people giving up halfway through by making it rather difficult and putting difficult offers.
