Meh, I could argue that validity of the 1 in 24 seeing as July would be an option twice, but I'll avoid that and say yes ... God wants you to have an iPhone.
I don't see how... there are 24 months in two years.... your contract ends on one of those months, each July is a different month, each with an equal chance of... OH GOD AM I REALLY THIS BORED????

If you notice, the chance of it lying on July is 2/24, or equal to 1/12.

No offense or anything but the chance of God or the gods of having anything to do with mobile phones is zero. Just saying...

Still bored: the chance of it lying on THIS July (2010) is 1/24. :D
Yes. But earlier on, you never mentioned July of 2010. You just said "What's the chances of it landing on July", basically meaning what's the chances of it lying on the same month as a new iPhone coming out, which would then be 1/12.

But okay, 1/24 for this July, yes.

Maybe he is taking some time off from helping rappers win grammys and basketball players win games and helping a common person like me get what I deserve.

you signed the contract in a set month, for a known set amout of time therefore the end of the contract was set back then and the probability of it then ending this july is certain (i.e. one)
