    Has anyone on here ever gotten a free iphone from those free iphone giveaway sites or know anyone that has?

    I just think its really stupid and am wondering if they really do give you one if you do it right.
    :p

    They're all spam.

    Not to say you can't win one from a radio station. That'd be ignoring my roots.

    i'd call that a bit of an assumption.

    Not an iPhone - but in a professional capacity, I've given away an iTouch or two at trade shows or sweepstakes.

    It is technically called the iPod Touch or just Touch. However, everyone knows what iTouch means. There are just a bunch of... people on here who salivate whenever someone calls it that.

    As for the OPs question, some promotions are legitimate (like the ones where you have to participate in a bunch of offers) but next to impossible to actually complete.

    funny you ask that question! i actually entered into this contest a few months back promoting an online college and they were giving away an iphone 3G. Not thinking i would win i filled out there survey and that was that. A couple of days ago i got an email from one of the people who work with the online school saying i won the contest. ha i had completely forgotten about it! anyways they said they were not sending me an iphone but they were sending me a gift card that was the amount of an iPhone. I already have an iPhone 3G so i hope it comes in the form of a visa gift card ha but anyways i thought that was awesome and yes some can be legit

    i know people who got 5th Gen. iPods that way. T-Mobile sidekicks too. I even helped a couple of them. Most of the stuff is free if you cancel before the "free trial" time is up. I never bothered to try with it, I just buy stuff. It's a lot easier that way.

    It's not a scam actually if you know the right sites. Back a few years ago I was interested in it. I got the following:

    $600 Check
    $500 Best Buy gift card
    iPod Touch

    I got the check and touch within 3 months from start to finish but the BB gift card took a full year to get to me. Regardless, I still got it:D

    I probably spent no more than $30 doing all the offers and got some great other freebies (some game and movie rentals, coffee machines, books).

    it has now been proven to be an inaccurate assumption.

    lesson learned: Don't assume, only state the Facts, of which were clearly lacking in prior assumption.

    It wasn't, however, FREE. Yes only $30 OOP, but my TIME is invaluable.

    There are many legit sources, but for every legit site it's probably 100 fake ones.

    Back when the video ipods first came out I remember some site where somebody I knew won one of them. I've never personally won or tried .
