When T-Mobile launched Contract Freedom at the Uncarrier 4.0 event in January 2015, it also started a huge social campaign in which it encouraged new customers to share their break-up stories. Now, the carrier has rebranded and relaunched a similar program and is offering the chance to win 12 months worth of service.

To take part, all you need to do is head on over to the bespoke Facebook page, choose your current carrier, select why you’re leaving and what’s so great about T-Mobile and it creates a video for you to share on social. Entrants can share their video once per day, up to ten times in total.

Twenty lucky entrants will win 12 months of free service in form of a single bill payment which covers a full year of Simple Choice on any of the plans, ranging from $50 to $80 per month (total up to $960 per winner). The sweepstakes is running from now until 11:58pm Pacific Time on April 8th, 2015. It’s open to any legal residents of the US, Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia as long as you’re 18 years old or over. You can read the full terms of the giveaway here. No purchase is necessary to take part.

If the winner is an existing customer, the prize will be based on their current Simple Choice plan, but they can use it to upgrade their plan to a higher one and still have it covered. If the winner isn’t an existing plan, they can sign up and then claim the reward, as per the terms:

“If a Prize Winner is an existing T-Mobile postpaid phone subscriber at the time of drawing, his/her Prize will be based on his/her monthly wireless service at the time of drawing, however s/he may use the Prize to upgrade his/her service to a more expensive plan (up to the $80 per month Simple Choice plan). If a Prize Winner is not an existing T-Mobile postpaid phone subscriber at the time of drawing, s/he may select a postpaid Simple Choice phone plan option (ranging from the $50 to $80 per month Simple Choice plan). The Prize will be awarded as a one-time bill credit that will appear on the Prize Winner’s bill within 2 bill cycles after Prize redemption.”

Twenty prize winners will be selected at random, and will be notified by April 30th, 2015.
