Samsung Behold 2 Giveaway Courtesy Of Samsung

behold2giveaway

Maybe the Android packing, Touchwiz touting Behold 2’s price tag just wasn’t doing it for you, even if your mouth was watering over all the Android and Samsung goodness.  Well, now you have a shot at winning one for that oh so special price of free.  Samsung is running a promotion to giveaway a Behold 2 every hour, on the hour, until December 23rd, and a LED TV every day.  Sounds like a sweet deal to me, and all it will cost is a moment of your time, and maybe an email or two.  If my math is correct, they have a total of 840 Behold 2s for the whole promotion (and 36 TVs).  So why don’t you head on over and try to snatch yourself up a holiday gift!

Samsung’s Be A Winner Giveaway

Update – for some reason, I keep seeing people doubting that this is a legitimate promotion.  Let me solve this problem and direct you to Samsung’s Twitter post.  Thank you very much, but please stay away, I want a Behold 2 just like the rest of you.

    Entered! Even if I can’t see blowing $25/month on a data package would still be cool to win. :) Now just need to hope they aren’t mining customer info to bombard me with telemarking.. lol

  • umaluver

    lol I was wondering how long it would be till someone spilled the beans on this.

    Contest gets harder to win in 3..2..

  • newspeak

    not an hour will go wasted

    i never win anything but what the hell….sucks its flash so i can’t use my g1 to make sure i do enter every hour

  • If I win this phone…I don’t know what I’ll do…probably be happy

  • tinalooks808

    Entered… I have never won anything in my life, would be awesome if I won one of these. Love my G1 but would love to have another phone to swap sims into!!!!!

  • jason

    is anyone else having trouble getting the register button to work? I’ve tried it on Firefox and Internet Explorer, and neither the big register button nor the ‘sign up here’ links are working for me.

    • Bill48105

      I had a problem clicking on the buttons after I confirmed my email address until I closed the windows & went there again & signed in again. Sucky-arse flash crap.

  • Well if you don’t win one I’m sure you will find some great EBAY deals on this phone here in a few weeks.

  • timmyjoe42

    The website didn’t view right in Internet Explorer, but my old version of Firefox worked.

    I can’t believe you have to register every hour for this thing. Jeebuz.

  • J-Hop2o6

    Entered using my “SPAM” email (yahoo mail) lol.. i guess u gotta sign back in every hour to enter in for the new hour.. hopefully i win the LED TV!!!!!!!! OMG!!!

  • Bill48105

    WTH the phone screen on that site showed the same ‘amanda’-something as the winner the last 2 hour drawings in a row! I call shenanigans!

  • Jerome

    Sweet, I jsut got an email saying I won. We’ll see if I actually did.

    • Bill48105

      No way congrats! You click on the all winners list & see if your name was on there?

    • rossi

      eromeo?

      • Jerome

        Yeah, apparently I was in a hurry to sign up and forgot sometimes my J and F keys don’t always work. So it says eromeo97 instead of Jeromeo97. You get an email letting you know if you win….

  • jays0n

    Looks like I’ll be rockin a hero rom on my g1 for awhile so i can make sure i can enter every hour!

  • Mahmoud

    ur math is wrong they are giving out 846 phones not 840.LOL!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Mahmoud

    my bad 864 not 846

  • Teddy

    I have the first POS Behold.
    I can use a new phone! Or a new badass TV!

  • Anthony

    Oh wow – Thanks for the heads up… I just registered and won! Thanks again, really appreciate it! I was getting tired of my G1, but didn’t see the point in buying anything new since there was nothing great out.

    • Bill48105

      Wow no way congrats! 2 winners from people in here in just 2 hours? How is that possible?

  • you won!!! you lucky bastard.

    • Anthony

      Thank you! I doubt a lot of people are playing or having the patience to do it every hour, so I am sure you have pretty good odds. I luckily only had to do it one time.

      • Bill48105

        How many hours did you enter? So damned lucky! lol

  • Antotonee

    i hope i win so i can give it to my sister for christmas, she needs it really bad and she deserves it.

  • kershon

    If I can win one of these things, it will complement my bold 9700 real well. I’m entering every hour since I found out about the contest here. Might even give it to my daughter for Christmas for a surprise.

  • Lance

    I’ve entered a few times now. Crossing my fingers, kind of tired of my Rizr.

  • bp_one12

    pretty curious how many tmo readers here have won? i’ve been entering for the past couple hours and nothing. also got the girl to enter. hehe.

  • Carl

    Same here, we think like bp_one12, I love my original Behold, but it’s time for a upgrade! No luck so far *fingers crossed*

  • rinklighter18

    That site is slow as hell. Nice phone, but I’d rather win a TV anyway. Anybody think they’ll be selling all these phone numbers they’ve been harvesting?

  • chris conanan

    I won one but didnt win thwe tv

  • chris conanan

    won thephone but not the tv

  • derrickps3

    i hope i win also, this is a good thing tmobile is doing, hopefully this will get them more costumers, tmobile FTW

  • MrNova

    Cool, just entered, I never won anything in my life either. But wow, entering every hour, is extremely time consuming. I need a new phone!

  • Inhuman

    Been trying to win. Nothing yet. I hardly every win anything, but im still crossing my fingers. Need a new phone BADLY!

  • pdxduckfan

    Registering EVERY HOUR??????? Fukc that!

  • John

    Keep entering, hoping to win! Woot woot

  • derrickps3

    some people are probably using more than 1 email to enter, but i am crossing my fingers to win a behold 2, then i can sell my memoir on craigslist :)

  • derrickps3

    OMG!!!! I JUST WON A BEHOLD 2!!!! I CAN’T BELIEVE IT, WOW…..THIS IS A BLESSING. THAN YOU TMOBILE FOR HAVING THIS CONTEST. TMOBILE SHOULD DO THIS MORE OFTEN WHEN THEY RELEASE NEW PHONES, AT LEAST ANDROID AND WINMO PHONES, BUT YEAH I AM SO HAPPY RIGHT NOW. EVERYONE GO LOOK AT THE LIST TO SEE MY NAME WHICH IS DERRICKPS3 ON THIER WINNER’S LIST. GOOD LUCK EVERYONE AND KEEP ENTERING!!! :D

    • timmyjoe42

      It’s cool to see our members names on the list. :)
      Now, if I could just get mine on the list. heh

  • Jesse

    That sucks, T-Mobile employees cant win.

  • mmaxsooner

    This contest is addictive. told the wife about it she has the contest window up at work just running the countdown. She likes her behold but would like better browser and aPps of behold 2 ill just keep my 9700.

  • derrickps3

    btw, my username on the forums on here is behold22, i just used my name derrick for the sweepstakes. again i am so happy i won, now i will be on the lookout for the ups truck

  • Robert

    This is a SAMSUNG promotion… not T-Mobile promotion. So for those on here that can’t figure it out and are singing T-Mo’s praises… get a clue.

    Not trying to be a jerk about it but it’s somewhat evident that Samsung is throwing this and not T-Mobile so it’s a bit out of sorts to be thanking T-Mobile or praising them or wishing they would throw more contests like this one……. when it’s not even their contest.

    That being said I’d MUCH rather have the outstanding TV they are offering rather than their crappy phone which I’ll just put up on craigslist if I happen to get one.

    • kershon

      Man. You’re a downer. If u can’t say anything good then stfu.

    • Robert_IS_a_JERK

      Well Robert, if you’re NOT trying to be a jerk, you’re NOT doing a very good job!

  • derrickps3

    @ robert

    wow, you dont have to be an A-hole………..i can understand you might be jealous, but anyway, good luck.

    • Seth

      Nice, congrats man. I’m still holding out to win one too. Hopefully it’ll work out. Did they say how it will take for it to come in?

  • kershon

    derrickps3 Congrats!! I have been up half the night entering with no luck. ha ha. I’m still trying though. I just got a bold 9700 but if I win one of these I’m gonna give it to my kid for Christmas. I think she needs an upgrade from her razor! lol

  • derrickps3

    @ seth……they say it will arrive to you within 2 weeks. i hope they send it 2 days shipping at least. i still can’t believe i won this phone, hoping i win the tv also, lol…………..and kershon, keep trying, it took me 3 entries to win, 1st two i didn’t win but on the 3rd time, as the timer counted and all of a sudden i saw my name pop up on the screen saying i won……..i almost fell out my chair, lol. they will send you a email right away saying congratulations and your phone will be sent to you in the mail within 2 weeks, i don’t if they will send it standard or ups or fedex. i contacted them to find out what will be the shipping method though. good luck everyone and keep trying every chance you get

  • Omniscience

    I’ve been entering for about 6 hours now and no luck, figured I would have better odds during the early morning hours of the day but no luck so far =..(

  • derrickps3

    don’t give up omniscience, keep trying

  • Omniscience

    Trust me I will, I’m using a BlackBerry Pearl 8100. the original one, bought it when it first came to T-Mobile, I could use a new phone lol

  • derrickps3

    i contacted them about the shipping method an this is the email response i got back

    (Prizes are sent via USPS Priority Mail with delivery confirmation. Delivery is within 14 days. Tracking is done by our fulfillment partners and if they have any problems with shipping, they’ll contact you.

    Thanks!)

  • kershon

    @derrickps3. I’m not giving up. Every hour I keep trying. I never have won anything like this before. I won a theme on crackberry the other day. First thing I ever won. Downside was I did’nt like it and uninstalled it. lol

  • derrickps3

    kershon this is my first time winning something online too, lol…….if only this was a cash giveaway of a million dollars :D

    • Bill48105

      Now yer just gettin greedy. lol

  • Matt

    I’m like most people – never won (or win) anything.

    I spent all last night entering and no dice. I’m actually in the market for an android powered phone at the moment, so winning would be pretty rad.

  • phuhcue

    i won one. i found this searching to see if it was legit.
    so i’ll actually get one huh? sweet.
    now will i be able to unlock it for verizon?

    • Rstar

      Hi phuhcue, you cant use tmobile phone on verizon. Either you will have to get tmobile service or sell the phone on ebay.

    • T-Mobile phones don’t work on Verizon’s CDMA network. However, if you are looking to sell that phone, drop me a line. I bought a Behold II on Friday and dropped it in the toilet on Sunday by accident.

  • nycityguy

    I won as well. Just hoping i can win the TV now lol.

  • Thanks for the heads up! I love a good freebie.

  • My hubby will love this!! Can you feel my confidence.

  • donosaur

    been doing this all day still haven’t won :(

    • Blake

      I dont understand why people are expecting to win?

      It is a drawing, you have a 1 in ~30k+ chance of getting picked, you shouldn’t expect to win.

      even if it was 1 in 100 you shouldn’t expect to win, thats a 1% chance.

  • kershon

    I have been at this all day. Every hour, on the hour. Still have’nt won, but I’m not giving up. Trying to stay optimistic. he he

  • Vikingsfan45

    WOOOOOOOOOOOOTTTTTTTTTTTTTT WON ME A BEHOLD KIND OF POINTLESS CONSIDERING I JUST ORDERED ONE WITH CUSTOMER CARE LIKE 2 DAYS AGO LOL…………

  • Rob

    I won a Behold a few days ago and I was the grand prize winner of the 40″ LED TV!

  • Omniscience

    Wished I were as lucky as you guys, just like Kershon I’ve been at it every hour on the hour today and haven’t had much luck yet, here’s hoping that I win one :-)

  • Inhuman

    im in the same boat. seems everyone around here is winning and I been trying since yesterday :(
    Anyhow congrats to the winners.

  • Bill48105

    I’ve done it hourly since this was posted & nadda. Starting to think this is a scam & these ‘winners’ are in on it. lol

  • Dustin

    I won 3 phones so far.

    I’m kidding.

    I’m never that lucky. I’ll be surprised if I win a coupon for Red Lobster.

  • timmyjoe42

    I’ve been staring at the Behold II picture so long, I almost want it more than the Cliq. I mean, I’ll take it if I win one, and probably love it, but I have really liked the Motorola quality in the past and have had lots of troubles with Samsung electronics in the past.

  • Dustin

    Radio Shack is selling the Cliq for 80 bucks on a 2 year agreement. My lady and I are tempted to get it, we’re both on T-Mobile with great plans but our phones are DOA.

    I’ve heard the Cliq is sensitive, i.e. fragile. Not too good for me. I’m very active. Though I’ve had my Dash since 2007, dropped a few times, but overall works – slowly.

  • Doug m

    Be careful with the Cliq, I got one last week, the battery lasted 8 hours with light use, the screen was unresponsive at times and the phone is just too heavy. Returned it after 2 days.

  • derrickps3

    i encourage everyone to keep entering, if i can win this phone so can you……and to bill48105, it is not a scam, it is 100% legit. i contacted them about when the prize will ship, and they said withing 7 days, being that this is thanksgiving week i should receive it next week. they ship the prizes via usps priority mail, and that only takes 2 days to be delievered, so i say between friday and sometime next week, lol depending on your postal service

    • Bill48105

      Well when the phone arrives & you’re holding it in your hand & you are sure there are no strings attached (like they send a bill to your house or spam/telemarket you to death) THEN you can say with 100% certainty it is legit. Hey, I’m just saying 2 things are certain in life: death & taxes & a free cell phone or tv isn’t on that list. lol Call me a cynic. ;)

  • sikkboy626

    Awesome, I won again!

    Of course, I’m rich and already have any phone I could ever want. Plus, I’m in a serious relationship with Megan Fox and cheating on her with Rhianna. Yeah I’m pretty much perfect in every way.

    This is obviously a scam, has anyone even won yet?

    • Bill48105

      LOL you lucky SOB! Let me jump in my private jet and take one of those hotties off yer hands. :D Not like we can actually verify any claims by people who say they’ve won but I am king cynic and believe sheeit when I see eeit. ;)

  • JBLmobileG1

    I believe this is real. I was one of the lucky people to win a Blackberry 8120 when they first launched it and it was a very similar setup. I didn’t have to pay anything and never received any spam or annoying phone calls etc. The only thing I could think of is that if you don’t have Tmobile and win… well let’s just hope you can unlock it (if you have AT&T) otherwise its no good to you unless you sign up with Tmobile or you already have Tmobile. On another note…. without the $30 data plan you probably won’t be able to use it. Those are the only catches that I could think of otherwise its legit with no real strings attached. I have been entering myself… it would be nice to have since I already have the Android data plan…. no luck yet though and I must have entered in a dozen times already. I am pretty sure the more and more people know about it the less chance you have to win. I wish I knew on day one…. if you noticed no one entered in at 6:00am …. that or the server was down. Oh well…. crosses fingers.

  • Kickstar13

    I hope I win.

    • kershon

      I hope you do to. Right after me. ha ha

  • kcirred10

    Just won one of these behold 2s. Thanks tmonews guys, without this site I wouldn’t have known about this contest and would have never had the chance to win. Keep up the good luck. also good luck tonite in the led tv drawing derrickps3.

    • Kickstar13

      Congrats!

  • timmyjoe42

    I hope some news comes out soon so this gets bumped to the second page. It keeps reminding people to enter. ;)

  • Omniscience

    If this is real, why is it no other cellphone website has this on their front page (not on engadget, nor phandroid, nor boygeniusreport etc)? and why do we see people that have won, post after they have won. Not one person has posted here hoping they would win, and then come back and say they won. I mean I can go to that website, see who won and come back and post as “Paulidin” and claim I won. Well for now am very skeptical of this “contest”, considering a Google search only show this website and one or two other obscure message boards. heck am just going to go straight to the source, am going to email Samsung USA. and no, not the samsung usa email on that contest website, but the actual corporate website

    • Dustin

      Please let me know the results!!!

  • Drizzle

    PBJS is listed in the eligibilty section as the official sponsor and they nor T-mobile employees are allowed to enter to win. Sounds legit to me.

    • Bill48105

      Well it could say Santa Claus is not eligible to enter either but would that make it more legit? LOL

      • Drizzle

        Well thats true…i tell you what…you and Santa Claus dont enter the contest and that makes our odds better of winning (or not since its all a hoax anyways).

    • Bill48105

      LOL @Drizzle. I talked to Santa & he said F off, you don’t enter. :D Hopefully it’s more real than Easter Bunny at least. hehe

      • Drizzle

        LOL Santa and the LOL Easter Bunny can lick my LOL ballsack LOL since Im gonna LOL win LOL (I figured we werent LOLing enough here)

  • gsxrmike04

    please wish me luck guy hopefully this is real and i win a phone and a TV WOOOOOOTT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • TAYLO355

    still trying :D its ok if i dont get it im just getting use to the mytouch 3g but i never wanted the mytouch i wanted the SAMSUNG BEHOLD II :”( lolz but i can live wit out it :(

    • Drizzle

      If I win, maybe we can make a trade. I dont particularly care for the behold either but I was getting it in hopes of attempting to root it.

  • derrickps3

    well i didn’t win the tv, but i’m still glad i won the phone. :), can’t wait to recieve it next week in the mail. good luck everyone and keep entering as there alot of those phones and tv’s they are giving away until dec 23rd. also to omniscience, this is legit, i posted on here before i even entered the contest saying i hope i win, entered 3 times and won. i also contacted the staff about the shipping method of the prize, and got great accurate responses, so there is no scam about this at all. if i were you omiscience, i would be trying to enter every chance i get to win a behold 2 and a led hdtv. i wish you the best of luck too even if you havent entered yet :)

  • timmyjoe42

    I would bet that PBJS is some sort of marketing firm that is using the giveaway website to promote the new Samsung phone.

    A quick google of PBJS Seattle leads me right to their website saying just that.

  • derrickps3

    timmyjoe42, what are you talking about? this is an official samsung/tmobile giveaway, please do not come on here trying to discourage other people from entering.

    • timmyjoe42

      I’m saying Samsung hired PBJS to promote the phone and that as part of their promotion they are giving away 864 Behold II’s and a bunch of Samsung TV’s. I didn’t say it wasn’t legit. I’m saying that just because it isn’t sponsored by Samsung directly doesn’t discount it as some sort of scam. I hope you get yours and I hope I win one. I need to ditch this Pearl before I throw it out the window.

      (Although 864 phones at $400 each is $345,600 which is a lot of cash for marketing, and yes I realize that it’s probably pennies to Samsung and it doesn’t cost them $400 for each phone.)

  • Dustin

    Look at the usernames that have won today. Some of them look generated… I remember back in the days I used to bruteforce adult sites, so I’m familiar with the application of generating names/passwords.

    For instance: 4pm – PASTCINDY then at 5pm – PASTJIM.

    What are the chances that someone with those usernames can win consecutively? If someone actually did win a phone/tv – then post a screenshot of the email or “success” screen.

    Until then, I’ll keep playing, and remain skeptical.

    • TAYLO355

      yes, a sreenshot would be nice, I’m starting to think its a big scam as well. and i notice that “past” like really! reaaallyy back to back really!! *raise eyebrow*

    • Bill48105

      I am always a skeptic and some of those names looked fishy especially that repeated PAST name thing but I chocked it up to few people up at that hour to click on the Enter button and I figured it was the same greedy person who might have won 2 because he/she happened to be up & wasn’t clever enough to use unique names. Owell maybe someone will win & post up real proof but until then this a Pavlov’s experiment to see how many of us lemmings will repeatedly click Enter even without any reward. lol

      • TAYLO355

        i was actily up at that time nn seen that happen n was like wtf!!

  • Omniscience

    I too would like to see a screenshot of said email…

  • WootRoot

    Im willing to bet that Samsung and/or Tmobile is paying PBJS money based off of clicks (PPC) since you have to click once every hour. If you think about it, every time someone registers and clicks the button to attempt to win every hour, thats time they are spending staring at a behold 2 and the tv’s. This contest is also pretty popular on sites other than tmonews.com as well. If this wasnt a hoax, they got paid based off of clicks, and Samsung gave them a special deal on a 800+ phones and all those TV’s PBJS would certainly make back the money to not only cover the electronics, but to also profit by simply having a flash site with a pic of a phone and 2 tv’s, which in my opinion would be brilliant.

    There “Official Game Rules” SEEM legit. Of course as mentioned earlier with the Santa remark things could be different. And I did look over the usernames, some of which seem shady.

    It could be a hoax, and it could be completely real. There privacy policy (if they honored it) would be fine but it states in there that if you need to change any information to email them. So what I did was I entered in my actual name, but everything else was tweeked a little bit. I grabbed a hotmail account just for this contest incase of future spam mail as well.

    Using this method and reasoning was a good enough excuse for me to enter the contest with a spare computer and a click macro to auto click every 60 minutes. My username for the contest is WootRoot, if (against all odds) I do win, ill be sure to post a legit screenshot of the email as well as you guys can see that WootRoot won a Behold and maybe even a TV to go with it.

    • Bill48105

      Sounds like a plan except the part where you admit you are lying & cheating to win. lol

  • MonJackson

    Please send a screenshot!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Or a copy of your email or something lol.

  • Dustin

    I’ve been playing this “game” since yesterday when the story broke on Tmonews.com

    Every hour, minus the time at the gym and sleep so I missed about 13 hours since it was posted.

  • Omniscience

    So any of you winners want to volunteer and provide us with a screenshot of your email saying you won?

    • Bill48105

      Sure I will, if I ever win. lol I used the same name as in here so should be pretty obvious. Don’t hold yer breath though cuz I can’t think of last thing I won, has been just way too long. ;(

      hmmmmmmmmm…………..

  • jays0n

    Looks like the winners are real. Check this out post #53 http://slickdeals.net/forums/showthread.php?t=1685645&page=4 and look at the winners on the 24th

  • I’m trying to win too! Good luck everyone! And if anyone at Samsung is reading this…pick me please!. My screen name is Derekuda.

  • WOOOOT Just won one!! well earlier in the evening I did. No luck on the 40″ tv tho. Cmon peeps, keep trying! there is still plenty of time!

    • TAYLO355

      yeah, nn does it matter how many mins or left?

    • Omniscience

      Yeah?, let’s see a screenshot of the email saying you won… till then I don’t buy it

  • Inhuman

    do you have to keep the window open affter you log in an push the play button?
    or can you close the window or shut off your pc, and see if you
    won later?

  • timmyjoe42

    They send you an email.
    If you win, when you try to log back in, it won’t let you plan anymore.

  • Bennett0105

    I won! :) lost the TV drawing though :(

    • timmyjoe42

      You won 3 days ago, and you stole my last name. ;)

    • Omniscience

      Post a screenshot of the email saying you won… or are you going to be just like the other people on here claiming they won but show no proof?

  • Dudes and Dudettes,

    I just WON!!!! I registered on the 19th and won today at 1pm! you can go to the site and see my name in the 1pm slot, screen name JeremiahL! If you’re doubtful, you can go to my blog by clicking my name above and check out the about page, where I clearly say my name is Jeremiah.

    I wrote a short blog post about my winning and included screen shots of the email and what the promotional website looks like after you win! I added the arrow so you can see which part changes.

    This promotion seems to be totally legit to me! It’s put on by a huge marketing firm that has promoted stuff for Microsoft and other big hitters. A whois verifies they own the domain.

    I’m still all elated and excited! I’ll post back with a picture of the phone when it gets here in a couple of weeks. The congratulations email said the phone will be shipped in two weeks.

    • Omniscience

      Post a screen capture of the winning email…

      Seems like a simple request, if you win, prove it to us by posting a picture of the email… otherwise it’s all a lie

      Don’t know how to post a picture?

      Open the “You Won!” email, press Print Screen on your keyboard, save it to your computer, then upload that picture to photobucket, or imageshack or any of the other million picture hosting sites, or perhaps your blog…

      Takes 1 minute…

      Show us you really “won”

    • Omniscience

      Thank you for posting the email, you’re a man of your word

    • TAYLO355

      yes, very nice, i shall keep clicking. Thank You sir. :)

  • Renesandy

    Just because of some you haven’t won doesn’t mean that its not legit.

    • Omniscience

      Just because they claim they won, doesn’t mean it’s true either now is it?

      If they prove to me with a screenshot of the winning email from samsung then that would without a doubt prove that it’s legit.

      It’s not rocket science… Heck, I’ll say I won too!!!, am Diana, go look at the winners… OMGBBQ!! I WON!

  • apocalance

    I get about 4-5 hours of sleep per night usually and since the 23rd around 6pm I guess, I’ve been clicking every hour. I haven’t won yet. So to all of you that have won, congratulations. I’m still clicking.

    • kershon

      Me too. Still no luck. And u can see it is 2:00 am my time and I’m still trying. (yawn) Once more and I’m going to bed for a while. Ha

  • derrickps3

    congrats to the people who won as well as myself, i won on nov 24th at 6:00 pst……i encourage everyone who reads this website to go and register and enter now if you havent got the chance yet. i am still shocked that i won though :D

  • derrickps3

    oh yeah and to the person who was wondering about some of the usernames being generated like PASTCINDY and PASTjim, they are probably related and in the same household.

    • Dustin

      Which is exactly my point. What are the chances that something like that would happen? It’s the cell phone equivalent of having 2 lottery winners on the same day live in the same house.

      Either super lucky, or super fraud.

  • MrNova

    I feel like i eat and drink, this website. Been clicking atleast 12 hours a day, for the last 4 days. I am trying to stay positive!

  • kershon

    Good night all. Just made my last click at least for a couple hours.

  • Broke

    Omg, I am so sick of this already! And, I KNOW I look ridiculous sneaking out my laptop at work every hour :(

    • timmyjoe42

      Hah, I brought my laptop over to my Aunt’s house yesterday and kept running over during dinner. lol

  • derrickps3

    @ dustin, theres no need to try and make this into a fraud, i have already told you that they are probably related and live in the same household, that doesn’t mean nothing, only that they are trying to double the chances. if it makes you happy, you can stop posting on here to save your time, thank you.

    ps.

    while you are making yourself think this is a scam, you can be entering and trying to win a phone and tv, instead of wasting your time on here. its not like everyone is listening to you anyway.

    • Bill48105

      @derrickps3 every time you reply you just come across as a shill for the contest & make it appear even less legit & make it seem more like a scam.. Seriously though, read what you’re writing & perhaps you’ll understand what I mean. Seems every winner who posts in here conveniently pops up after they’ve won with the same happy song and dance about BE SURE YOU KEEP TRYING like they are part of the scam. And the fact numerous people in here have asked the winners to kindly post up a screen shot or proof and other than pasted text that could easily be typed up I have yet to see any. This contest is looking more fishy every minute!

  • Some people just can’t be convinced regardless of the proof. There’s no point in trying to convince them further. If they don’t believe it, it’s better for the rest of you, as they won’t be entering the contest (better odds for you). I posted screen shots and everything, there’s not much more you can do to convince a person.

    I checked this morning as soon as I woke up, to see if I won the TV, and I didn’t. I’m still counting myself very lucky that I won the phone though. Hope everyone had a happy Thanksgiving!

    • Bill48105

      Jeremiah, sorry I didn’t see your post about going to your blog. I was just looking for someone to post up links to images posted on an image site. I checked out your screenshots & they do look convincing but then again quite interesting that you are a photoshop pro (your previous posts on your blog pretty much show your savvy at editing photos) which makes me wonder about the authenticity so perhaps your screenshots are real or perhaps they are good shoops like we’ve seen *many* times online. Perhaps you are right, maybe some of us will never believe unless we win & get the thing in our hand but again I’ve said I’m a major cynic. ;) (Heck if the contest was on a real Samsung or TMobile site or even linked to or mentioned on those places I’d be convinced.) Either way, legit or not, this does indeed seem like one helluva marketing campaign that seems very successful at attracting buzz & lemmings staring & clicking & hoping for the best even without any 100% reliable, verifiable proof so there is something to be said for that. I tell you Pavlov would be proud. LOL

  • This is a great marketing campaign. Think about all the buzz they’re creating by giving these phones away. Once the phones are shipped out, they’ll have people like me showing the phone to everyone I know and talking it up like crazy! Winners that don’t have t-mobile will likely switch their plan. Winners like myself who have t-mobile, but don’t currently have a smart phone will be adding a data plan (which I’ll be doing as soon as the phone arrives). So Samsung get’s lots of gorilla marketing, and t-mobile gets new/upgraded customers. Pretty good advertising in my opinion.

  • Alright, I emailed Samsung customer support and this is the response I got:

    Thank you for your inquiry. Through researching the contest rules and privacy policy there are many references as to information sharing with Samsung Communications America.
    The Contest is actually from a third party but is with the permission of Samsung. We thank you for our continued interest in Samsung products.

    Sincerely,
    Technical Support

    Still seems iffy to me, regardless I will keep playing (despite the fact that the behold 2 is possibly the worst android phone on the market atm.

    • Omniscience

      Well at least they answered your email lol. I’ve emailed them twice and they’ve failed to get back to me.

    • This is being sponsored by http://www.PBJS.com – though they are an advertising/event coordinating company, so Samsung must have a very strong hand in what is going on here.

  • derrickps3

    you’re right jerimiah, i am not about to waste my time arguing with the ones who don’t believe it, as i said before you are only wasting YOUR time and its not like anyone will listen to you saying its a scam, i have referred alot of people i know who can use a new phone, hell even some tmobile employees that i know as well even tho they aren’t allowed to enter. and to the other person, i am gonna keep checking here to see all the people who are winning and congratulate them if i get a chance and keep encouraging people to enter. so if you wanna say this is a scam, heres a thought for you to think on, try saying all those other SCAMS out there saying you can win a free computer or ps3 or cell phone etc…. and want you to fill out a series of offers which you HAVE to PAY for. THOSE are the ones that ARE SCAMS. so don’t come on here saying this giveaway is a scam. please keep all that to yourselves, don’t come on here discouraging other readings who come across this page. :)

    • Omniscience

      Derrickps3 see the thing about this is, we have been taught at an early age that if something sounds too good to be true, it probably is. We’ve also being taught that nothing in life is truly FREE

      So don’t blame us if we’re not gullible and easily fooled, in today’s society you have to prove to us that something is not a scam before we believe what you say. You yourself could’ve convinced me a long time ago by posting a screenshot of your winning email, yet you failed to do that, why is that? it would’ve taken you 1-2 minutes to do it

      Maybe you buy into everything out there on the web, but I certainly don’t, and would hate to see other people out there get give out their personal information to some random website claiming to give stuff out for free.

      But congratulations on your phone, am happy for you

  • mstrongjr

    well i believe its for real….and congratulations to all who have won…i have been entering for the past coiuple of days now…not every single hour but ive entered my share of times …so has my son hes been entering also here are our screen names so if you see it pop up in the winner list they are mstrongjr and suprtong………..

  • kershon

    IT’S A SCAM! IT’S A SCAM! All you people thinking this is a scam just quit playing and don’t worry about it. That way I have a better chance of winning. Roflmao. I’m tired of all the downers on here myself. And derrickps3 and Jeremia, if you got a copy of your confirmation email and pasted it to some people’s foreheads they would not believe it. Congrats to all you winners! I for one am going to keep trying. Happy Hollidays.

    • mstrongjr

      LMAO

    • Bill48105

      FO kershon. obviously you live in a land of fairy tales & lolly pops. seriously though FO for calling those of us with some common sense to question things ‘downers’. Since when is it a bad thing to use your head & wonder if something is too good to be true especially when a bunch of things keep adding up & pointing to it being BS. I’m not saying it IS a scam, I’m not saying it ISN’T a scam, I am saying right now to me it smells of week old fish. If I happen to win I’ll eat crow but until then F’in forgive me for being a cynic. I guess I’ve been F’d too many times in my life but I’m glad you can still see through those rose colored glasses of yours. ;P Again I am not telling people to not keep playing, obviously we have free will but at this point it sure as hell looks a bit shady to me. If not shady on the part of those it’s being run by shady by those entering bogusly to try & win them all or cheat to ruin it for honest people.

      • kershon

        FO yourself Bill48105. Looks like I jerked your chain and you jumped. lmao. People like you would never believe anything was true even if it was right in front of you. And you keep beating the same dead horse over and over. Jerimia posted a copy of his email from the contest. I guess you were not smart enough to read it. Like I said, if an email was printed out and sent to you ceritfied mail you would not believe it. The trouble with people like you is your think you are smarter than other people and have an arrogant attitude. I would rather live in a “land of fairy tales and lollipops” than in the world you seem to be living in and in which most of us do not wish to be in. IF you win, do you want some fish sauce with that crow?? lmfao! Cheers and Happy Hollidays!!!!

      • Bill48105

        I am anything but arrogant but think what you will I give a rats arse. I did see the posts & if you read what I said I thought it was interesting that person who posted that is big on photoshop. Scroll down & read some blog entries on tricks for using it. Hmm.. Interesting coincidence I’m sure.. Again, my cynic side but hey it’s protected me before and I’m sure it will again, with a false alarm here & there along the way so if I win (and I’m not holding my breath) I would not like fish sauce with my crow, I’ll take it straight thank you very much. :P

  • Why do people use that email as proof that it isn’t a scam? Any scammer can send out an email saying I’m going to send you a phone, but until someone actually gets a phone, I still think it is too good to be true.

  • Dustin

    I’m betting my Samsung Behold 2 that Kershon voted for Bush jr. during his second campaign, though more than likely Kershon was and is still too young to vote.

    Yeah, we question stuff on the internet. The internet is my playground and I can question everything.

    I’m also Santa Claus.

    • Bill48105

      Dear Santa, can you bring me one of these phones for xmas cuz I figure I gotta better chance asking you than winning this contest. LMAO

      Well said, “question everything” is the smart thing to do even if it doesn’t make you Mr Popular with the gullible. ;) Btw anyone read out loud some of those winners on the list? WOW I sure hope those are not real people. lol

      • 2FR35H

        you know I thought the same thing until I actually gave it a try after the 3rd hour I won one and now I shall wait for it to arrive at my doorstep but point is that you have far more of a chance to win than you think. I never won a damn thing online until now… lol the people are real because im one of them

        I am 2FR35H(recent samsung behold 2 winner) and I approve this message.

  • I thought I posted this already. I posted a screen shot of the email I was sent on my blog at techbotlive.com Check it out! This is for all the skeptics and yes I am well aware anyone can write and email saying I’ve one something…but cmon, it takes only a few seconds to enter every hour. So for those of you who haven’t won yet keep at it, you have tons of opportunity left.

    • TAYLO355

      Nice Blog :)

      • Thanks! Just launched couple weeks ago and have lots to learn. Im off to a good start though!

    • Bill48105

      Hmm, missed your blog post and saw the update by Andrew with Samsung’s Twitter post so it seems the contest is likely legit. Congrats on winning & thanks for taking the time to post that up.

      Seems my recent response to Drizzle was deleted or lost by the system but there’s no point in posting it again. I won’t apologize for questioning a contest run by an unknown 3rd party when there were no apparent ties official ties showing it was legit because that is the common sense thing to do but I will apologize if I offended anyone who felt accused of something as that was not my intention. Hopefully for contests in the future companies will choose to link to official corporate sites with confirmation that the contest is indeed legit because that would have set aside any reservations and avoided the confusion.

  • 2FR35H

    Yupp I just won one a few hours ago at 4 PST hopefully it is legit because I want my damn prize lol but I didn’t win that awesome ass tv though

  • I posted a few screen shots on my blog at couchsquash.com too, but they still don’t believe. People will win, others wont. Everyone here who’s so doubtful as to be paralyzed by fear will certainly not win. I assumed people would start questioning the screen shots as soon as they were posted and I was right. That’s how it is online. Everyone wants to see screen shots and when they finally get to see them they say they’re fake. Oh well, their loss.

  • Sean

    I’ve been playing since Monday Nov 23rd. Seems like I put my life on this lol. I’m on the computer every hour entering myself. Sleeping at average 6am (latest 9am), waking up at around 3-4ish pm and continuing. I have a Sidekick LX 2009 and since I just bought it, I don’t want to upgrade for $400 for an Android Device. For the winners, what time did you guys enter? I need some advice, I seem to have a lot of bad luck lol.

    • timmyjoe42

      They entered within that the hour they won. ;)

    • 2FR35H

      I entered right when I have heard about it…. I started at like 11am or 12pm on the 27th entered and stayed on the page til about 1 or 2 then forgot about it took a break got back on and left the page open for 2 more hours and boom bam I won hallelujah at 4pm PST and 5 or 6pm Central time.

  • Drizzle

    What gets me is what purpose does Jeremia have of posting on his personal blog a lie? I dont see the motive. His blog is about photoshop and then he wins a phone so posts about it….yeah makes a lot of sense….he works for samsung? Bill is a prick. I understand you being critical of contests but do you live in a bubble? These contests happen all the time because they are GREAT for marketing. Its not too good to be true because you have to still win for it to be “too good to be true.” Dud you see engadget giving away stuff all day yesterday? Maybe they are a bunch of a-holes too trying to scam everyone into posting on their site?? FU BILL

  • derrickps3

    congrats 2FR35H, lol at people who doesn’t win always thinking its a scam, just keep trying. i entered during the early hours of the morning like at 5am or 6am, and won. i think i had a better chance since it was early, idk but i am very lucky to have won one.

    • 2FR35H

      thank you and ayy congrats you still won nevertheless.

  • derrickps3

    i also wanted to say that jerimiah is telling the truth, i am a witness myself as i have the same email, everyone gets that same email saying congratulations so and so, so please don’t bash jerimiah for showing proof. i would show a screenshot of my exact email but i don’t have the right tools to do like he did. cause i don’t know how lol.

    • Bill48105

      Now that the original post has been updated with a link to an official Samsung USA twitter post about it there is no doubt it is legit. It doesn’t prove people who claim they won actually won but if they did congrats are definitely in order.

      No one was bashing Jerimiah or anyone else for that matter. Not sure how questioning the legitimacy of a contest run by a 3rd party on the internet without any verifiable proof (at the time anyway) that it was legit turned into such a huge ordeal. Common sense says you question things online or you’re going to get taken, hard. Yes it was great he posted up his proof but again I don’t see what the big deal is for me to point out his blog looks dedicated to using Photoshop which is the well known tool for faking photos. Pointing out that fact is not bashing him and if he took it that way I apologize.

  • derrickps3

    yeah but bill you have been constantly acting like a child on here and kept saying it was a scam and blah blah blah, all you had to do was say it once and forget about the whole thing. i don’t see what you were trying to do anyway, to make people not enter? i’m just saying you have been trolling long enough now, its time to chill out bro.

    • kershon

      Well said derrickps3. Agreed. p.s. I’m still trying. No luck yet.

    • Bill48105

      Whatever you say cuz it must be childish to question stuff and I wasn’t the only one just like you weren’t the only one going on & on about winning & how great it was. I can’t speak for anyone else but I was trying to get to the bottom of the legitimacy of it and no I had no intention of trying to stop anyone from doing anything. Unlike you who kept saying “keep trying!” I did not push anyone one way or the other. Anyway beating a dead horse cuz as pointed out the original post has been updated showing it is legit so chill yerself bro cuz I’m calm cool & collected myself.

  • kershon

    Almost forgot. Congrats to 2FR35H. Now I am hoping it will be my turn pretty soon. I’m losing too much sleep!

    • The behold 2 is not worth losing sleep over.

    • 2FR35H

      Thank you and I wish you luck

  • derrickps3

    lol kershon, don’t kill yourself over it, you need your rest. but i wish you the best of luck. you got a whole lot of time before the contest ends

    • kershon

      Ha ha ha. I don’t think I will kill myself off, but if I do win it will probably be the last hour of the last day. That’s usually the way my luck runs. I get my catnaps in through the day. lol. And thanks for wishing me luck. I’m gonna need it. I could use a new tv too. Should I be so lucky.

      • Bill48105

        Your luck? Heck my luck I’d win the day after it ends. lol Owell I’ll just watch for derrick’s on ebay. ;)

  • SE

    No, it’s a scam! Stay away!!!!

    (as I hit ENTER on the contest page)

    • kershon

      LOL LOL (as I hit enter on the contest page)

  • Blake

    Ahh, i think the sites drawing might be compromised, this could just merely be coincidence but, look at who won just now: iamthe winner. Makes you think..

  • Drizzle

    why? bc someone named themselvess iamthe winner? i dont get it…

  • Blake

    what are the chances that out of 30k plus people the winner just happens to be “iamthe winner” ?

    • 2FR35H

      What are the chances that I would have won this? but I did soo…

  • 2FR35H

    I wish I could enter again so I could win the tv and the phone well I could with my other email but I think they would take back my prize if I did.

    • kershon

      I thought if you won the phone, you could keep on entering for the tv. So far I haven’t had to worry about that though. lol

      • 2FR35H

        lol if you can then i don’t know how but to win a tv you have to already be a prize winner and so far the only tv winners were the ones that were prize winners for that specific day I have yet to see a phone winner from another day win a tv after that day has past.

      • 2FR35H

        Keep trying man its not over yet just keep going every hour and eventually you will win.

  • QKING

    Wow. All this arguing over NOTHING AT ALL. Ok some believe it and others don’t— sounds like every other thing in fuc&*ng life. If you have nothing better to do try masterbating.

  • mark000

    Oh my god! i won like a week ago and i am so glad i found this blog!! up until now i kept wondering if it was a scam. i mean, how often does it just happen that my friend sends me a link while chatting on facebook and tells me to enter and after registering with literally like 15 seconds left i win!!! i didnt even know i won until i checked my email the next morning and my friend ad sent me an email telling me that i won!!! which made me even more skeptical!! but reading this makes every ounce of doubt just fade away!!!
    Thanks

    • 2FR35H

      Did you win the TV?

  • kershon

    2FR35H I’m gonna keep on keeping on. Lots of time left to win. Who knows I might win one in time to get it here before Christmas. If I do win I’m giving it to my daughter for Christmas. She was in a car wreck Saturday night with her bf. Blazer rolled and landed upside down. So if I don’t win I’m gonna bite the bullet and just buy her one.

    • 2FR35H

      Damn Thats crazy I hope you eventually win… I bet you that you are gonna win right after you actually buy the phone lol then you are going to be the lucky s.o.b. that gets the tv lol

  • kershon

    For all the sceptics of this giveaway being legit: read the update to the post and follow the link.

      Sorry to hear about your daughter, hopefully she & her bf are OK. I’m sure she’d appreciate the phone either way. You know, according to Murph you’ll win as soon as you buy one, just like if you want it to rain wash your car. So bite the bullet & buy one so you can win already! lol

      • kershon

        Thanks Bill48105. They are both home. Stayed overnight for observation. They got banged up some but are going to be ok. They are not moving too fast yet. But you are right, if I go buy one then I will win one for sure. If I buy one I was considering the Cliq since she is big into the myspace social thing. I have not handled either device so I am really just guessing. Customer service suggested the Cliq when I talked to them the other day.

      • Bill48105

        Good to hear kershon. I’m sure you are well aware the severity of a rollover so they are definitely lucky. That alone was your prize so in a sense you did win way more than a stupid phone. :)

        Definitely go check them out in person because that can make all the difference along with discretely getting info from your daughter on her prefs like hardware qwerty, size/weight etc. If it weren’t for higher data charges I’d likely have already bought a Behold 2 myself because it looks like one sweeeet phone. :D

  • kershon

    You are right Bill48105. I already got my Christmas present. And as soon as I get a chance I will go the T-Mo store and check out the phones after I get a few hints from my daughter. Of all things she is using an old razor I had around here. By choice. She had the gravity with slider keyboard and says she likes the old razor better.. I can’t figure that one out yet. The way she pounds out those text messages I can’t figure out why she would not want a real keyboard. lol. I have been dropping little hints like the Cliq would be good for doing your myspace thing and telling her she can keep track of all her social stuff including her contacts with it. I might just have to take her with me right before Christmas and go to the store and let her look over the phones I guess. But then it would not be a surprise.. I guess I could just get one. I believe there is still a 14 day buyer’s remorse with tmo. Let her try one and if she does not like it, try another. I don’t really think she realizes how much more she could do with a phone like the Cliq or Behold 2. I let her play with my bb and she doesn’t like it. Although she is only 14 she is pretty sharp about what she likes and what she doesn’t. But if she ever got her hands on one of these android phones she would be throwing that razor in the garbage. lol

    • Bill48105

      Personally I think it not being a surprise & getting what you want/need is better but that is just me. :D If she’s used to texting with a dialpad she might not like touch-only or hw qwerty even, is a very tough thing to transition for many. I always say cell phones are like underwear, you really need to pick em out yourself. lol

      • kershon

        Bill48105. I know you are right (about the underwear anyway). Ha Ha

  • derrickps3

    mark000, you said you won a week ago, have you gotten your prize in the mail yet? if so, how long did it take, cause they said they ship the prizes out via priority mail, which only takes 2-3days to be delivered. so i was just wondering, i tried getting a tracking number but they say thier affiliated partner does it. sucks cuase i like to track these type of packages

    • 2FR35H

      2-3 days? The email they sent me said 14 those bastards lol

    • 2FR35H

      did you find out if you can get the tracking number from the affiliated partner?

  • derrickps3

    well i tried asking for a tracking number again but got the same type of answer, i don’t know why i keep aggravating them when i know the answer lol, but the lady ( i can tell hse’s a lady by her feminine name) said i should get my phone this week. so i am guessing tuesday since the prizes ship out from the day we win. can’t wait to get this phone, so i can sell and get rid of my samsung memoir

    • Bill48105

      Like many free things (contest winnings, warranty exchanges, etc) they won’t exactly put you ahead of paying customers when fulfilling the orders. ;) Maybe they are selling too quickly for them to keep up which would be a great sign for both Tmo & Samsung. But yeah will be interesting to know how long it takes.

    • 2FR35H

      did you try contacting the affiliate who would have the tracking number?

  • mustang8918

    I just won today. I left work early this morning to run some errands and happened to decide to stop by the house and once I was here, I might as well enter the contest and walla, I won.

  • umaluver

    post office gets backed up big time this time of year and then add the Thanksgiving holiday time off and your 2-3 day estimate can easily jump to 10 business days.

    2-3 days is only when its somthing you dont really care about. :P

  • Bill48105

    Congrats mustang8918, some people are just so dang lucky! I know 5 people who’ve been entering 16-20 times a day & none have won. ;(

    @umaluver very true, I keep forgetting holidays are here because we’ve normally had a bunch of snow by now. Queue Murph and snow for tonight. lol

  • mustang8918

    I’ve been trying for the last week and today just happened to be my lucky day.

  • derrickps3

    congrats mustang8918, hope you win the tv, i din’t :( lol

    • 2FR35H

      Same lol damn I WANT THE TV! anyone wanna trade? lol any 40″ Samsung LED TV Winners here? haha I’ll trade you my behold 2 for you LED TV lol come on you all know you want to… PLZ… or don’t trade just give me the tv :D

  • Taylor

    ive been trying for a week now, :( i no theres 100000 to 1 and i have never won anything, but im still keeping my hopes up. :)

  • timmyjoe42

    No more winners from here in the last 3 days?

    • Bill48105

      Nope seems we are a bunch of losers lol Have a feeling a lot more are entering or someone found a way to cheat & win em all.

  • Mark

    Has any of the winners recieved there phone yet? Seems like some of the earlier winners would have the phone in hand by now.

  • Saleem

    I won mobile phone on 21st of nov. and contacted them about tracking number. They replied that you should get phone with in 14 business days. damn. I can’t wait to see it and hopefully should get it by next Friday if every thing goes well.

    • 2FR35H

      Haha more like that is when they ship it. Im on day 11 or 12 of waiting for the phone ah the agony in the meanwhile its killing me that I have ps3 that I can’t play till christmas because of tradition…

  • kaboomx

    I just won one at 9:00 on their website, December 3rd ^___^

  • kaboomx

    i mean december 4th

  • kyra

    i just won!!!! well i did yesterday at 11:00 pm december 3… just found out… yay im so happy…

  • Chris

    Whoever doesn’t believe this site is retarded. Samsung is a multimillion or billion company, whatever! They have the money to just throw away free stuff. If this was some random run of the mill company doing this, I wouldn’t believe it either, but this is Samsung. They have the money, actually what they are doing is advertising. Giving all this stuff away for free will advertise it. Hey what phone is that “the samsung behold 2” cool I might just get that phone because it’s cool. If you want to complain about fairy tales…cool! Write it down in your diary, just stop wasting your time trying to prove the believers wrong. This is like politics and religion here, lol. Just chill guys.

    • Bill48105

      Wow dude you are so behind & obviously didn’t read all the comments.. The question was because it wasn’t on a Samsung domain, instead a newly reg’d one under a no-name company. *I* could reg a domain & post up a contest that is supposedly being done by Samsung, logos & all, and before anyone stopped me I’d already have tons of personal information from people who signed up. Anyway, after some research by various people (including post by Samsung USA on their Twitter page) it was determined the contest seems legit, or at least officially sponsored by Samsung since there is no real way for us to know for sure if the contest isn’t rigged or is truly random without it being verified by an independent 3rd party. Time for you to chill guy and catch up. ;)

      • phuhcue

        well… i thought about that.. just how random is this?
        i figure the only thing that could influence your
        chances is what carrier you tell them youre with.
        i was with verizon. ive since switched to t-mobile.
        which is exactly what they are giving this thing away for.
        brilliant and effective.. imo. :-)
        i’d like to see the data on that…
        how many non t-moble winners there are as opposed to current t-mobile customers.

  • Oscar

    ive tried like 8 times i wanna winn!!!

  • Moe

    I have tried all day and night but still never win a single prize yet. This is not simple as it looks but million other people register to win. Congrats for all the winners who receive the phone or the TV. I never win any contest from internet or big company giving away worthful prize. If I win this prize I will be joyful to get free TV or cell phone.

  • Matty

    did anyone who won the phone a few weeks ago, recieved theirs’ yet? i have yet to receive mines. this friday will mark 14 buisness days. so hopefully before the end of this week.

  • phuhcue

    i won on the 19th of november. no phone yet. one thing i did find out though.
    the notification email says you recieve the phone within 14 buisness days.
    in the official rules it states the phone doesnt even ship for approximately 14 buisness days.
    i emailed them about this. they said the official rules were correct.
    they also thanked me for bringing this descrepancy to their attention. lol.
    it looks like my phone wont ship out until at least 12/09.
    given the time of year and depending on how and where it ships from.. im probably not getting this phone before xmas. the only ray of hope is the word approximate.
    :(

    • Sey

      When you win does it show that you cannot enter again at the top….I was just wondering b/c when it says calculating results I am wondering if you win does that mean that the sign “you are entered” no longer appears.

  • shawn1224

    I just won in the last hour. Got confirmation e-mail that “I can expect to receive it in 14 days”.

    Has anyone received their Behold 2 yet?

    • phuhcue

      i won mine the second day of the contest. it looks the earliest winners phone’s wont ship until the 8th at the earliest.

  • Sey

    Does anyone who was won know when you win does it show that you cannot enter again at the top….I was just wondering b/c when it says calculating results I am wondering if you win does that mean that the sign “you are entered” no longer appears.
    Reply

    • Bill48105

      The screenshots posted show the “Enter” or “Entered” buttons changed to “You won” or something along those lines. What I wonder is if we are really getting entered.. I mean I keep the window open & just click it every hour but I am hoping they don’t expect us to log out each hour or if you click more than once in an hour if you get blacklisted like they think you are cheating with an automated clicker or something. I mean it says we are entered but for all we know we’re not. Anyway it is very frustrating to enter almost every single hour (aside from a few hours while sleeping but even then a click here & there if I get up in the night) and still no luck. The contest might be legit but it makes me wonder if it is on the up & up unless there really are millions entering every hour but then it makes me wonder how a bunch of people commenting in here actually won. lol

      Ps. No sense in bashing me for questioning the contest. Seriously. ;)

      • kershon

        I have been wondering the same thing. I have tried logging out and then logging back in, closing the browser for a while and bringing it back up. Sometimes I click more than once. Most websites I am familiar with, when I close the browser for a little while and bring it back up I have to log in again unless it is like ebay where you can stay signed in for a certain length of time. Every time I close and reopen I have not had to log back in. I just stay logged in. Can’t figure that one out. The long time frame from winning to actually receiving the phone seems a little long too. And the descrepancy that phuhcue talks about seems like possibly a stall tactic?? Time will tell I guess. I hope that if the winners start getting their phones they will report in and let us know what’s up.

      • Bill48105

        Same here! I found it odd it didn’t ask me to log in after closing the browser sometimes (not always) so I assumed it was a cookie but I cleared cookies & it still logged me back in. Are they detecting my IP? I found it says logged in but doesn’t say your username either. Oh & get this, you notice the countdown clock gets out of sync sometimes especially if you leave it open a long time? Sometimes mine is still counting down when the hour has already passed. And I’ve been on the phone with a friend counting down & they didn’t match & he told me the winner before mine hit 0! UMM WTF!?! Sumtins whacked wit dat.

      • 2FR35H

        You don’t have to re log in you just have to click the enter button again

  • Lectric

    Ahh shawn I saw you win! Lucky T_T I’ve been entering all day..

  • shawn1224

    I was weary as well and I also tediously entered every hour of the day until I finally won. I do think it’s legit though because I went on Samsung Mobile’s website and they have a link up that takes you straight to the contest. I highly doubt that they would endorse something that’s either fictitious or bogus in nature.

    • Bill48105

      Oh no here we go. lol I’m past questioning if it’s legit, just asking if it’s run fairly or even the inner workings like does it matter if you stay logged in or log out & back in or does it matter if you click on the same spot every time or if you close the ‘CONGRATULATIONS’ window before clicking the next time or if you enter too many times in a day or if you told it you had TMobile or not when signing up or if someone else on your IP is entering too etc etc. Perhaps I’m overthinking it but hey that’s what I do. My sole purpose in life is to what-if things to death until I know everything there is to know about it, good and bad, from every angle. And that part of me that can’t sleep at night because of this contest needs to know is it rigged like the slot machines at a casino or it is truly 100% random and true luck of the draw no strings attached. Perhaps we’ll never know but assuming the people who won get their phones before TMobile moves to 4G (Soz had to get that dig in) then at least they will be happy & it’ll be time to obsess about something else. LOL

  • shawn1224

    phuhcue says:
    “how many non t-mobile winners are there as opposed to current t-mobile customers”

    You know what phuhcue I didn’t even think about that. I currently have the 1st generation Behold and I entered my cell phone number so I’m sure they can verify that it’s T-mobile. Hmmm … this could be bigger than watergate, LOL

  • Lectric

    Blah! I want to win >:o My mama dukes ordered my family a bunch of samsung memoirs :| She said the behold 2 was free last night.. I doubt it. I was going to return the memoir when it gets here and buy the behold 2 but idk if I should keep the memoir and pray to win this lol

  • Lectric

    Also I don’t think anything matters other than you entering during the specific hour. I mean you can shut down your computer you’d still be entered… As long as you got the confirmation that you were entered I wouldn’t worry about the other things.

    • phuhcue

      i entered a total of 3 times.
      with ten minutes left in the 3rd hour.
      thats the hour i won.

      its random… just keep trying!

  • shawn1224

    The Memoir is pretty much exactly like the 1st Behold except for a better camera feature. It’s not a smart-phone and runs on Samsung’s proprietary OS. The Behold is very limited as far as upgrades. If you want a great camera phone, then keep the Memoir but if you want an open source smart-phone that has android market for apps, definitely go with the Behold II. It’s a much better phone.

  • phuhcue

    ive emailed support again.
    ive asked the following:
    have any winner’s phones shipped?
    how are they being shipped? ups, us mail?
    if you do not have any of this information who
    can i contact to find out?

    i’ll post back when i get an answer.

    • Mark

      I am very interested to see what they say to this. When I read thru the many posts about shipping it appears there are many different answers from this company. I won on the 25th and I have seen a winner from the 23rd as well as the 21st. I have also read emails that say the phones should have already shipped to as late as 14 business days from after the day you win? This company is not doing samsung any favors with there poor comunication to the winners. I do not think it is unreasonable to provide a tracking number to the winners. Hopefully this will all be resolved very soon.

      • phuhcue

        me too, although im sure i’ll get some b.s. corporate doubletalk… but we’ll see.
        the thing is that the people running the contest probably have no idea.
        hopefully they’ll pass the buck and give me some other people to pester.
        i have no patience. lol

    • Tiffany

      I won my phone on Nov 20 I just received it on !0 Dec. It takes 14 business days to get to you. Also it comes from Grand Rapids, MN. It’s so worth the wait! It’s shipped by USPS Priority Mail. I was like WTH when i looked in my mailbox and saw it. Someone could’ve took it.

  • phuhcue

    ok… im bored.
    how many of you guys have watched all the video reviews and unboxing videos youtube has to offer?
    i think ive read every review, watched all the vids there are.
    i think i can deal with all the drawbacks they say the phone has…
    you know.. since its free! lol

    ive got my t mobile account. ive got my sim card.
    WHERES MY PHONE!!! grrrr…

      Congrats you lucky bastage! Good to know people who enter a lot can win as I was starting to think they ignored people who entered too much since it seemed like the people who won did so in their first few tries and here I am entering pretty much hourly since it was posted & nadda. Even have my ma doing it since she’s up often at night & nadda. Glad it seems there is still a chance. :)

No wonder you conveniently couldn’t produce a video!! ;P Congrats, cool you won & actually rec’d it even if it took weeks. lol At least you won! I’ve been entering 16-20 times per day every say since this post about the contest with no luck. Even got my mom doing it under her name so guess we’re just not lucky.

      Ps. Mmmm this fried crow is yummy. Oh crap it’s got west nile! Thanks for sharing. :)

      PPs. I love how I get singled out considering I wasn’t the only one with enough sense to question the contest early on before proof surfaced. I mean I am seriously considering registering a domain name like winafreesamsungphonesucka.com, whipping up a web site with Samsung logos & all and ask people to register to win giving personal info like their email, mailing address & phone # and see how many fall for it before someone has the sense to question if it’s legit or not. Who’d be eating crow then? ;)

      PPPs. FEDS, LOCAL POLICE, SAMSUNG, WHOEVER, I AM NOT REALLY GOING TO DO THAT, IT WAS A HYPOTHETICAL SITUATION USED TO PROVE A POINT SO NO NEED TO COME LOOKING FOR ME. NOW BACK TO MONITORING REAL BAD GUYS & NOT US GEEKS. THANK YOU.

      can anyone tell me if they entered at the begining, middle or the end when they won

      i entered a total of 3 times. the last and winning hour had about ten minutes left when i clicked. this was the 19th of november, the second day.

  • atul0002

    can anyone tell me if they entered at the begining, middle or the end when they won

    • What-tha-hell

      I entered about a week b4 the november the 30 and I won the the phone on the 11/30/2009 at 3am. Talked the Cordinator and she said :

      Description: Can you tell me if my phone has been shipped and when it will be delivered?

      We have your address as:

      There was a delay in shipping the first batch of prizes, but they have all been sent and you should receive it today or Monday at the latest. If you have not received it on Monday – or if your shipping address is incorrect, please contact me and we’ll look into it.

      Thanks,
      Jackie

  • geodude

    with in the first 10 min. i really dont think it matters thow just got to keep up with it, best of luck.

  • atul0002

    Thanx

    ive been doing this for like ive been doin this for like five days now
    how long did it take for you guys?

  • Matty

    i entered since nov 19th when i found about that contest from facebook. then i won on nov 22nd. i kinda used 5 emails lol but i won with the 1st email i registered with which was funny. haha your odds of winning usually depends on how many applicants were entered at that hour of the drawing.

    • Bill48105

      Be careful Matty you are admitting to cheating. Prolly not so smart especially as a winner. They might track you down & give your prize to me! MUAHHAHHHH!!

      Time..to..make..the..donuts..
      Oops wrong phrase!
      Time..to..click..Enter…
      Can’t believe i’m up at 4:48am to do this. lol

    • Johnson87

      Hi matty did you enter all with the same adress and also did you use the same computer? thanks i need help and really want to win

  • Hotchocoleight

    So winners, did you guys log in and out of the site occasionally, or did you just stay logged in and keep entering?

    • shawn1224

      For some reason it kept me logged in even when I closed down my browser but for the most part I would keep it up and enter every hour and just minimize my browser at work. I started entering around the 3rd of Dec and finally won on the 7th, so it took me a total of 4 days on and off.

  • Dustin

    I stay logged in for the most part.

  • Dustin

    …and still no word from customer support, tried twice.

    I will resume skepticism until response.

  • geodude

    Im in southern ca and its real i was using a flip video to do the unboxing and i took like 4 vis of it i need to put them together

    • phuhcue

      thats what i thought.
      i figured the thing would be shipping from the west coast and the people who got their phones would be out west. im east coast so.. maybe today. :-)

  • geodude

    Lol i really wanted to see someone eat a crow

  • Dustin

    Heard from support, they will make the change or verify today b/c the prize report is happening later on today.

    I don’t get why everyone is on their soapbox about “eating crow”. There is absolutely nothing wrong with questioning this type of contest with the kind of economy we have and it’s not like the demand is huge OR they’re benefiting in any way.

    The whole ” I told you so” attitude is beyond immature.

  • andshieh

    Look for my name guys. Ever since I heard about this on December 9th I have literally entered in every single hour since then. If I don’t win you know it’s rigged :[

    • 2FR35H

      Lol uh they already have confirmed the legitimacy.

  • Dustin

    It took me forever and hundreds of entries to win… hopefully I get my phone before Christmas.

    They ship USPS apparently.

  • Got mine! Click my name for the link to my blog, and view the pic I posted. To all conspiracy people. I hate to say it, but don’t read into it. I never win these things! No it does not matter it your a Tmo customer or whatever. So try your luck! 2 days in a row I entered 10 times while at work…nothing. On a Wednesday i randomly won…simple as that. So let me know what you think! I will be doing a full review asap!

    • phuhcue

      what state are you in? im guessing further east than cali. lol
      im trying to figure how long it’ll take to get over here to the east coast.

    • phuhcue

      well.. when you consider even a t-mobile customer will have to upgrade to an internet package for this phone… theres incentive to select t-mobile customers as winners also.
      i think its random.. but you never know.
      =D

      • timmyjoe42

        Only if you want the internet on the phone. You could use the wifi and other features.

      • Bill48105

        @timmyjoe42 That’s funny cuz I had a few diff TMO CS reps tell me no Android phone would work without internet (one told me you can’t even call 911 DOH!) and that is why the data plan is required. :o They don’t like it when you try to correct them. :D

  • imans24

    so i entered this contest today and started it for the first time in the last 2 hours and haven’t won yet, but i really hope to win this. id be really excited if i got this phone. i recently upgraded my contract and now i have a samsung comeback, and at first i like it but now i hate it. i dont plan on spending another 230 on a phone either…

    i guess im just like anyone else and hope i get this new phone. it looks really good too. but if i dont get it oh well. but ill keep trying :)

    • kershon

      If you win this one you will be throwing rocks at your comeback. Or running over it with your truck. LOL. There is that much difference..

      • imans24

        haha I think i would!! :) I hope i win. Im trying for now. Just curious though since this is a smartphone you do need a data plan right? Or can you use it without one…?

  • kimmylou

    Ugh, I have been entering for like 2 weeks now almost every hour and nothing…Still. And then I read on here that people got it in like a day. Are there any hints from those people? How many minutes in did you register? I need help please! I gotta win one of these things

    • phuhcue

      well.. the early winners where helped by the fact that not alot of people knew about it. im sure thats how i won. there couldnt have been many people entering on the second day. as the word has spread im sure there are many many more entrants now. you just gotta keep trying. good luck.

      • kimmylou

        I have still been entering every hour and nothing. I tell you what they should just give me one for persistance! =-)

  • imans24

    I have a question…if I don’t win this behold, would anyone be willing to sell me theirs/give it for free (if you are feeling the Christmas spirit :D lol jk..) for a much cheaper price than its actually advertised? I’m going to keep trying but I really want one…

    Eh. Just gotta be patient I guess…I really want this for my bday and christmas haha.

    • Dustin

      I may sell you mine, IF it ever arrives.

      • imans24

        alright, because i heard you have to have tmobile to use the phone and I have tmobile.

      • atul0002

        how much tho

  • Dustin

    Did anyone that won ever get a receipt or tracking # ?

    I got the “congratulations” email… thats it.

    • AeJ

      Naah they wont give u a tracking # but u can email the support team at the email in your winning email and ask when it will arrive. Im using mine right now i won on the 11/30/2009 it came this past monday.

  • Koolaidman

    I Won on November 28th at 11 P.M. and it arrived in 2 weeks like they said.

    • Dustin

      Awesome. So I won on the 9th.. hopefully this week or early next week before I fly out for holidays.

      • shawn1224

        I think they ship em in groups. I won on the 7th and the day after I won they said it would arrive in 7-10 business days. We’ll probably receive ours sometime this week … hopefully today or Wednesday. There are only so many review videos I can watch before going crazy with anticipation.

      • Dustin

        Let me know when you get yours? please..

  • khalilwllms

    I WON on the 10 at 7pm and guess what my name is, Winner123 lol haha i know kinda dumb for me to choose it but im soo happy i won but i want MY PHONE NOW but i just have to wait until it ships in GOOD LUCK TO ANYONE WHO IS STILL TRYING :)

  • phuhcue

    got mine last night fellas.

    good luck to those still trying.

    the phone works just fine wthout a data plan as far as calling
    and text goes.

    • john09

      how long did it take you to try? I have been faithfully entering the contest almost every hour. Literally losing sleep…but no luck. how long were you in the contest til you won one?

      • Edward

        i sure wish i win…ive been entering ever hour as well

      • phuhcue

        i won on the second on my third entry.
        there was about ten minutes left in the hour i won.

        again.. im sure my luck was helped by the fact that the contest was not
        well known early on. skeptical people.. word getting around.. ect.

        now there are many many more people trying. the odds are much thinner now.
        good luck.

  • atul0002

    thanx

    i could use some luk rigt now

  • shawn1224

    It’s going to be a lot tougher now that more people are aware that this promotion is going on. I think your best chances are going to be between 2-5am when most people are still getting in those precious hours of sleep.

    Best of luck guys.

    • Bill48105

      I still think there are people using automated methods of entries making it almost impossible for others to win.

      • shawn1224

        That could very well be a possibility as well as multiple logins as well. It’s been reported that there is an average of between 2,000 & 15,000 people playing per hour, depending on the time of day.

      • Bill48105

        Really? Where did you see # of entries per hour reported? I could just see someone figuring out a way to utilize a botnet of infected computers to enter for them.. MUHAHHAHAHHH!

        Btw did anyone look back at winners on day 1. There was 1 hour with no winner. System glitch or not a single person entered that hour? Boy I’d love to go back in time & enter then. :D

      • shawn1224

        It was posted by a user who received the information from customer support via e-mail.

  • Johnson87

    has anyone who won used multiple names? disguise your winning name and help us guys…..if you did then how many names? and did they all have the same address?

  • Johnson87

    has anyone who won used multiple names? disguise your winning name and help us guys…..if you did then how many names? and did they all have the same mailing address?

    • Bill48105

      If someone figured out a way they aren’t going to tell you, they’re going to keep winning more phones & possibly tv’s! But I’m guessing they have checks in place like coming from same IP, using same mailing address, cookies in the browser, etc.

      • Johnson87

        but if they did have those checks in place….then there shouldnt be anything to worry about….im using 2 names with different emails and address and no luck…..i wonder what happens when you get disqualified……there is one guy named matty who said he used 5 different email addresses and won….i just want a phone badly and i am upset people are attempting to win more than once and selling their phones =[

      • Bill48105

        Well the people running the contest certainly aren’t going to share their methods. It’s like if you are trying to break into a webmail account & the error is “I’m sorry the password isn’t right mainly because it needs to be 6 letters & start with a capital” vs “LOGIN FAILURE”. Which one clues the attacker in more as to what move is next to get by? Same with this contest.. It is very possible some of us have been flagged (even if we didn’t do anything wrong or are aren’t aware we did like if we accidentally click to enter without paying attention & we’re already entered.. Maybe that disqualifies you.) & not even know it but the flash thing just merrily tells us we’re entered even if we have no chance of winning. And we’re assuming that the flash thing actually works & doesn’t have some bug where it says you’re logged in & lets you ‘enter’ but in reality you’re doing nothing and will never win. (I’ve wondered about this one because most of the time when I close the window & open back up it says I’m logged in. OK so I assume it stored it in a cookie but if I clear cookies most of the time it shows I’m logged in. Now how is the possible unless it detects based on IP or is lying to me.) On the other hand there could be no tests at all & there are people out there who figured out how to enter 100,000’s of times every hour, 24×7. Guess what, if that’s the case the people entering honestly have little change or at least much less chance than before. Or perhaps it just got so popular that there are so many people entering now that we have a better chance of getting struck by {BZZZZ! BOOM!} “AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!!” hehe Anyway to me the most frustrating part is not knowing if their system works correctly & if it’s fair, even more so than not winning. Because then at least I know my odds & know if it’s worth bothering or if it’s just a complete waste of time. I guess the good news is it is free to enter so at least we’re just wasting our time & not our $ too. :D

  • imans24

    Been entering every hour still no luck…honestly I guess I don’t care whether I win or not anymore. I’m going to still keep trying, but I think my chances of winning is like trying to win a good amount of money through the lottery…at first I was hopeful but now I’m just kind of out of it haha. But I’ll keep trying I guess.

    • atul0002

      Same Here

      Especially after i heard that about 2000 to 15000 people enter every hour

  • tron20

    I’ve been play for 2 weeks now an nothing. How do you win. I wait for 00:00 clock then click on the enter to win. How do you know its real if it never tells you where the winner came from city an location? I also notice they only pick people who have pick me I’m a winner or girls names. I should re make mine an put paris hilton as my user name see what happens.

    • imans24

      yea, my username is exactly as ive enterted it. I dont know whether however this is done is specific towards certain names or whether it depends on what time you enter the drawing…i have no clue. all i know is the more i click that button the more i feel like im wasting my time lol.

    • imans24

      yea, my username is exactly as ive enterted it here. I dont know whether however this is done is specific towards certain names or whether it depends on what time you enter the drawing…i have no clue. all i know is the more i click that button the more i feel like im wasting my time lol.

  • The Observer

    i got the mail for the fors for winning the led tv. they want me to fill out a w-9 form and another form that has to be notarized and i’ll be responsible for paying tax of the retail price of the tv.

    that dont sound very fun

    • Bill48105

      DOH! That sux ballz. Tax on retail will prolly be more than street price for a decent tv. :o I was wonderin if they’d hit people up with that cuz I thought any price valued over $600 needed to be reported. Heck surprised they don’t claim retail on the phone is enough to have to report.

    • Johnson87

      welling winning an LED TV does lol

    • 2FR35H

      Well then… I am just going to stop entering again for the tv lol tax on something free is ridiculous.

  • Dustin

    Imma still waitin’

  • Johnson87

    Still waiting here =[……..2 entries and still havent won….it makes me want to make 90 different logins =/

  • atul0002

    can someone explain this
    i opened up the giveaway page on my bros computer using internet explorer
    and his is about 10 seconds off. is it because im using Firefox?

    Does this make any sense at all?

    • Bill48105

      It’s been as much as 15 minutes off on my computer when the window is left open. The best is when it shows the winner on the right before the count-down finishes. And no I’m not talking about when it shows the OLD winner, I mean it watched & it has shown the new winner before the drawing supposedly happened.

  • kershon

    I too am getting fed up with not winning. I have cleared the cookies, history, footprints, closed the browser and rebooted my computer and when I bring up their website I don’t have to log in. If some people are using automated systems to enter the contest it’s gonna be a slim chance any of us win. And like was stated already, if we have been disqualified for some unknown reason, we are sure wasting a lot of time. I have been at this sometimes entering 20 times a day since TmoNews posted the story. I was hoping to win this phone so I could give it to my daughter for Christmas, but I already ordered her a Shadow 2 from T-Mo and it’s gonna be here tomorrow. So if and it’s a big if I win this thing i’m gonna put it on eBay and cover my losses. And if I ever decide I want an android phone I will get myself the Nexus. It won’t be long the contest will be over and I can get some sleep. lol

  • kershon

    One more thought. If I would win the tv and they want an arm and a leg (pun intended) for the tax they can keep it. I just bought a new flat panel tv today. Merry Christmas to me. Ho Ho Ho

  • The Observer

    actually the letter says the retail price is $1,600, so im guessin the tax should be $140’ish

    and those sayin that they keep logging you in even when you clear history or whatever. they prolly are loggin you in via IP address.

    • Bill48105

      You see the problem if they log us in by IP right? What if people share the same IP and it watches for people cheating based on multiple entries from the same IP? Or IP’s change like with DSL/dialup and it logs you in under someone else’s IP as them?? We are trusting in them that they’ve covered the bases to making it work correctly & fairly but we have no clue if that’s the case. That stupid page just keeps merrily saying we’re entered without showing who we’re entered as or if it’s lying to us & we’re actually disqualified somehow. It’s just frustrating when they don’t disclose the procedures or it’s at least run by a known reputable 3rd party that we trust.

      Hope the winners have $140 to spare. But $140 is dirt cheap for a tv, especially one that big/nice.

  • tron20

    Thanks buddy imans24 I thought I was the only one here that hasn’t won yet. I’m glad to see some people actually won. Hopefully one of wins something the phone would be cool if not the tv.

    • imans24

      Good luck to you to tron!!! Me and you both I hope we win a phone. I don’t really care about the TV lol. Is your username tron20? If I see it come out I’ll be really excited and I definitely hope you win!

  • ramazank2

    I won a phone back in the early days on my first entry!!! I thought I could win my wife one really quick but I have not been so lucky. I really like this phone since it works without a data plan and you can use WiFi to simulate a data plan. The only things I dont like about it is that you are not able to remove or hide preinstalled apps and the alarm doesnt play music, you need to download an app.

  • imans24

    Oh I know nothing in life is free but again if anyone wants to sell their phone for a MUCH cheaper price…under $100.00, maybe $50.00? I might buy…I really want to win. :( Or if they want to give it for free…ha

  • imans24

    Btw just thought I’d let you guys know I have to log myself in everytime now. Maybe that means something?

  • imans24

    Also, maybe this is just me but I think I’m starting to question some of the names that are winning such as the name that just won “wannaphonebad” and in the past there where names like “Iamthe winner” and “like2play44” and “ChuckBeAWinner” I guess just out of the thousands that enter what are the REAL chances of names like these popping up? Kind of wish I put my name with something like “winner” in it.

  • Alex

    Hi all I received mines today like what phuhcue said im sure my luck was helped by the fact that the contest was not
    well known early on

  • Ive been entering almost every hour too and still no luck. Ive been looking at the winners list and all the usernames seem strange.

    • imans24

      i agree. and all day today its been names that are either full names like “HenryTang” or “CoreyCorpse”. I’ve also noticed theres one day with names without any numbers in them. I dont know just doesnt seem as random as id expect in a drawing…

      • HenryTang

        Ahaha, HenryTang was me :]

  • Dustin

    There’s no trick to winning. Just be consistently entering per day. Follow the rules. HOWEVER, I won on the 9th and still have yet to receive anything – other than the “congratulations” email.

    • 2FR35H

      It can take up to 14 days to be delivered

  • EricFink

    if anyone would like to sell theirs contact me at huskyfootball51@aol.com

  • Dustin

    I have just got my phone. I repeat, the phone is here and I am freaking out! Shipped via USPS… I won on the 9th of Dec.. it was on my doorstep on the 19th. PERFECT!!!!!

    HAPPY!!!!

    Goodluck guys!

    • Brandon

      Hey I won about a week ago, did you have to get tmobile service to activate the phone. Or pay anything for it?

    • shawn1224

      Congrats Dustin, mines came on Friday the 18th so I guess they were shipped out around the same time. I took pics and all and posted them on the Android forums where Derrick had his posted. The phone is uber-sweet … loving it

  • Dustin

    I have Tmobile, I just popped in my old SIM card and I’m good to go. I do not have a data plan yet! But everything works.

    I haven’t paid one penny for this. Everything was covered by the site.

    This phone is better than I thought, but I never used android before so I’m still figuring it out. I may add a video of the box and contents later on, but I’m busy taking my friend to the airport soon.

  • imans24

    I’m trying to sell my comeback so in the chances I don’t win this phone I have money to buy it. Anyone know of any good sites where I can put it up for sale? Going to put it up on ebay and i have it on craigslist already.

  • maxxdhix

    I won on the eighth but still haven’t got it:( is that normal?

    • Kickstar13

      You should eventually get it.

    • The Observer

      you should get it today, mine did and i won the 8th, at least wait a couple more days and then send them an email

  • Johnson87

    did anyone that won use multiple logins?

  • Jamesh

    I have been playing since the 10th of January, and just yesterday (the 20th) I won the Behold 2 during the 6:00 hour, and just found out an hour or so ago that I also won the TV.

    Yay me!

  • The Observer

    my phone just came in today, now i gotta fill out these forms for the tv

  • atul0002

    welp tommorrow is the last day

    hope atleast one of us wins
    good luk to erryboddy who finna play tommorrow

  • Karen

    For the peopel who won WHAT IS YOUR SECRET?? haha Did you enter every hour for a month or was it totally random? I need a new phone bad been entering every hour for a while now and nothing so sad. Did you press the enter button the second it switched over to the next hour? What did you do? Thanks and Congrats!

  • MapQua

    I have been entering every hour on the Hour since the 18th and Nothing, I hope I win because would love to end my shit contract with at&t and go to t-mobile winning this phone would inspire me to do so, Plus I asked my wife and she said if I was to win the T.V. She would pay the tax in an instant, So hopefully we will win, Lord knows I have been trying,…Come on Samsung Give Me That WIN!!!!!

  • MapQua

    Jamesh Its Not January Yet Budd,..But I Did See You Win Cause I Was Watching the Site When You Won Your Phone And T.V. Congrats Give me some of your Luck!!!!

  • MapQua

    WOW Galan_Luis And alanG_lf2 Multiple Entry’s And Wins Lucky Lucky Lucky, Sure Wish I Could Win One.

  • MapQua

    Im thinking this is T-Mobile Call Center Employee’s Who are winning these prizes and not the general public,…hence all the supportive posts,…And people who dont win will be so frustrated they will just go buy the phone,…I really dont think they are giving these away like they say, T-Mobile doesn’t even have enough money to pay its employees on time so how in the hell are they going to give 400,000 dollars worth of stuff away not even counting shipping fee’s And no I don’t believe the Contract will cover the cost,…Cause What about the people who just sell the phone who dont have t-mobile?…Too Good to Be True?….Then It Usually Is Not True!

    • The Observer

      um you got it confused. Tmobile has nothin to do with the giveaway. This is all about samsung.

      im not a T-mobile employee and i won the phone and the tv on the 8th

  • imans24

    So ive been entering in this contest the moment I found out about it. I’m with tmobile by the way already. And I found out on the 12th and had no luck, and still have no luck. However I’m getting my Samsung Behold 2 next week. I called them because these past 2 months I’ve been having problems with my comeback, and have been EXTREMELY dissatisfied with the phone when I spent $230 or so dollars on this phone that doesn’t match up at all to a better phone (such as the behold), and was not worth the price I paid back in October. Explained all this to them because again, yea this phone has been posing issues for me and making me unhappy, and customer care is sending me the Behold free of charge because my contract is still new. If you are with tmobile I wouldnt call in if you just upgraded your contract just to try and get another phone, but if you are dissatisfied with your phone and you recently got a new one I would try this method. Getting my money’s worth :) And I’m excited to get it. Good luck to everyone still playing.

      I highly doubt T mobile will just give you the Behold 2 for free. I had the exact same problem with my original Behold when I just a signed a new contract. Phone was freezing up and giving me all sorts of hell. After returning the phone/getting a replacement and talking to numerous customer reps, i tried to upgrade to the mytouch and the best they offered me was the mytouch at full discount price .. and this was after hassling with the customer service manager over a period of time.

      Plus they don’t give you any credit for the phone you already have.

    • shawn1224

      I forgot to mention that this only applies after you passed your 14 day grace period .

      • imans24

        They gave it free and credited everything back to me. Got it in the mail today through express shipping also free, and I had called a day ago or two ago. All they did was ask which phone I wanted and I told them and they gave it to me. Since I recently upgraded my contract they said it should be fine.

        Now all I have to do is send in my Samsung comeback back to them.

      • imans24

        Oh and you said new contract? I’m not sure about if you recently switch to T-mobile. I’ve been with T-mobile for probably about 5 years now, and didn’t upgrade the contract until 2 months ago. I don’t know if that makes a difference.

  • MapQua

    Says Contest is over When I go To Internet Explorer and Try to Login But When I Log In With Firefox Contest is still Going?….Whats Up With That?…Well Hopefully I Win

  • MapQua

    The Obsever Yea Your The Guy That One On Two Different Days Also Right?…Then everone saw that and it got changed,…Um Okay You Dont Work for T-mobile Alright Its Your story tell it how you want.

    • The Observer

      what are you talkin about? are you stupid? where did i ever say i won on 2 different days? everyone saw what?

  • MapQua

    Im just mad cause I didnt win and I have been on here since the 18th on the hour and didn’t, me and my wife have been splitting the entry times in shifts to get the free phone and hopefully the T.V. but no Dice,…Guess We just are out of luck then.

  • atul0002

    MAnn i started on the sixth and I didnt win
    they should have put the people that entered more, more likely to win

  • Bill48105

    Their contest is so F’d up! And not saying that because I entered almost every single hour since this site posted about the contest and never win. But even though the contest is OVER it is still letting me enter! And it even says I’m entered! The button changes to green “You are entered” like before and it shows popup saying “Congratulations you are entered in this hours drawing” like before. How is that possible when there are no more drawings? Tell me their system isn’t F’d! How can we trust it was functioning properly every time we entered while the contest was running when it still “works” now?? For all we know every time we entered we weren’t really entered.. ;( Oh and manely_1969 wins every hour now according to the game site.. What a crock of crap I tell ya! Shenanigans!!!!!

  • jeapena

    I won on Dec.21 after my 3rd try… I have the Behold 1 and i was just going to upgrade to the new behold and yay I won it!!! im just here waiting patiently!!!

  • MapQua

    Yea Exactly I want to e-Mail theme a screen Snip Of it still entering to win and I’m going to contact the better business bureau about this contest, I know it was free but also I think it was misleading and I want to know how the contest generated the winners if their system is not working correctly.

  • tron20

    I was kind of disappointed not for winning. However I was thinking 13 to enter a drawing an win a tv? How does a 13 year old win a tv an pay taxes. His parents might be happy to get the tv. What happens if they can’t afford to pay for the tax on the device. On Tuesday there was a glitch a picked a winner twice on the site at 2pm (ericktrejo390) an didn’t show the next winner. You had to go to winner board to find out. Yeah now there still doing the drawing on the 24th. Something isn’t right about the contest.

  • atul0002

    Try refreshing cuz on mine it says that the contest is over

  • Bill48105

    Still letting me enter. The person is charge of it must be off on Xmas vacation & forgot to shut it off. lol

    • 2FR35H

      Lol maybe you will win lmao haha xD

      • Bill48105

        LOL I doubt it considering the thing keeps showing the same winner ever hour now.

  • tron20

    Hey Bill48105 watch you be a winner an they try to take back you winnings. That would be funny. Merry Christmas.

    • Bill48105

      Super mean! But I think I’d know if I had won.. Then again that is giving their system too much credit. lol Merry Xmas

  • Bill48105

    It’s still letting me enter.. You can’t tell me that’s not jacked up. Seriously how do we trust it was run legitimately & fairly? Granted it was free to enter but still many of us spent a lot of time entering & we have no idea if our entries were even accepted all along. How can we trust they were when it keeps saying I’m entered now even when it’s over?

  • kershon

    Big congratulations to all the winners out there. @Bill48105 I have had the same thing happen-contest over, still letting me “enter”. Gotta be some shenanigans somewhere, but we will never know. It is discouraging to think that after entering so often that it was never any use because of some “secret disqualification” or whatever. Anyway Happy New Year Everybody!

    • sneakn

      I think something is definately up. How many ppl left their pc on and your power bill went up? Not to mention they gave away phones to people with very similiar user names.. Wonder how many ppl cheated

      • Bill48105

        Yeah real fishy names. I realize sometimes people need to be creative to come up with a unique name to register but some are way too close to be just a coincidence. Makes you think people figured out a way to cheat & win a bunch. Look for em on ebay & craigslist and they rake in the $ while many of us never really stood a chance. ;(

    • Bill48105

      Yeah congrats to those who won but wow their F’d up system is STILL letting me enter! And it happily reports that I *am* entered, even a week after it ended! Makes me think all those 1000 or so times I entered they weren’t even registered and maybe I had 0 chance so it was all for nothing.

  • Bill48105

    So a week after the contest ended they FINALLY stopped me from entering. When I click the Enter to Win button it says that due to server maintenance the browser needs to be refreshed to enter this hour’s drawing. As if it’s still going on.. I wondered how long it’d take for them to realize people were still entering & block it. What a cheesy way to do it though. Still doesn’t ease my concerns any that all the prior entries were actually accepted.

  • Bill48105

    LOL WTF, it let me enter Samsung giveaway again! After I set the date back on my computer it happily let me enter again even though the contest ended on the 23rd. It must have some kind of expiration date built in that it checks but stupid it lets me bypass it by changing the computer’s date.

    Am I the only one who finds it troublesome that it blindly lets me enter still? (Up until today I didn’t have to change the computer’s date or any sort of finagling, it just let me enter as if the contest was still going so don’t say I was tricking it) I certainly don’t trust 1 bit that it was properly registering my entries that’s for sure!

    • kershon

      Me thinks we have been on one hulluva wild goose chase. It was letting me enter after the contest ended also, so I just deleted the bookmark out of my favorites. I’m getting more sleep now though. LOL As for me, lesson learned.

  • Stuffacan

    I won a Behold II on Dec 18. The contest is legit… Just letting you all know :)

    • Bill48105

      Congrats but I think we all moved passed questioning if it was legit weeks ago. ;) My problem with it is if it was run fairly and if each of our entries was actually being entered correctly. The fact that it was letting me enter over & over AFTER the contest ended is proof to me that their method is crap. It was actually still letting me enter as of Jan 4th, 11 days after it ended! (Although I had to set the date back on my computer to Dec 28th for it to work) I ended up needing to reboot to fix another problem so odds are we’ll never know how long it would have let me enter. I’m betting forever. Tell me that lets all us losers rest easy.

      So yeah congrats on winning, it’s nice to know some people actually won. But it is still frustrating as hell to enter 100’s of times over many weeks and not win especially when for all I know none of my entries might have been registered. I guess I’ll chock it up to a learning experience & a waste of time but I am surprised more people aren’t outraged over how it was run though. Except those who won of course. lol

  • The Observer

    the led tv came today!

    • Bill48105

      Cool! Bet that thing looks nice. Let me guess, you have analog cable. lol We recently replaced our 32″ that died with a 42″ that was on sale and we were excited to find our cable sends some digital channels unencrypted (even a handful of HD ones!) & the digital tuner found them so free bonus for us since we’re too cheap to spend $30 more per month. Hopefully you have BlueRay or HD cable/sat to make use of that awesome tv. :)

  • Lyn

    WOW…my T-Mobile contract is up.
    I would love to have one of these
    for my new phone!!!!!!

    I have been with T-Mobile for
    ten years. They are definitely

    I plan of being with them for as

  • atul0002

    You should get the Nexas ONe
    At http://www.google.com/phone

  • ericktrejo390

    i won on december 23rd and im BARELY getting the phone in the mail early next week.

    but its a free phone so i guess i cant complain :)

  • Here are my impressions about Samsung Behold II phone:
    Well equipped with multimedia facilities, use of AMOLED screen gives quite sharp and brighter colors. Use of android on this phone is arguably is the highlight.
    There are many positive features about this phone, but a few
    potential pitfalls for power users as well , Tech Wiz is not that great. The major concern is about the virtual keyboard using it in portrait made causes difficulties, so the only option left is using it in landscape mode.

  • Paulningeonga

    cool samsunge phone
