T-Mobile offers sweepstakes through the Xbox 360

Well, our favorite carrier is now on Xbox Live with a Play & Win sweepstakes with prizes for all! Yeah, there aren’t as many prizes as last time (which was 435 Microsoft Points cards in the amount of 4,000 points each) but there are a lot more ways to enter than just playing one game this time! First, the prizes:

  • Eight Grand Prizes: A prize package consisting of an Xbox 360 Elite console, Universal remote, and Xbox LIVE Vision camera.
  • Twenty-Four First Prizes: A T-Mobile-Wing™ smart phone
  • Thirty-Two Second Prizes: A Samsung t429 Prepaid Phone Kit

No idea why they’re giving away the Wing as a First prize though… but it’s something. I mean, all you have to do is play a game and you might end up with a nice smart phone [even if it is an older phone] for use as your primary or backup phone, whichever your fancy. As for the prepaid phone… no comment ;) Still, Play & Win contests are always fun, and in most cases it seems it would be a surprise to get an email stating you’ve won when all you had to do was play a game. So, what games are part of the contest? Well, there are four games, but you can only get an entry during specified periods all the way through September 30, 2008.

  • Frogger 2 (play between July 7th and July 22nd)
  • Kung Fu Panda (play between July 23rd and August 12th)
  • Madden NFL 09 (play between August 13th and September 2nd)
  • Lego Batman (play between September 3rd and and September 30th)

There you go gamers, knock yourselves out, and good luck getting some of that free stuff :)

    You are speaking from the point of view of the alternate reality that the T-Mobile handset decision makers live in.

    I just verified based on when a Google search told me that the Wing was announced. I know it’s the successor to the MDA which I believe was out in 2005… I’m not sure how to trace it back any further. Besides, T-Mobile USA was formed in 2002 and Voicestream, the company that was bought out by Duetsche Telekom and later became T-Mobile, was formed in 1996 but wasn’t spun off into its own subsidiary until 1999. The wing couldn’t have existed then, it was too advanced for that time anyway.

    The wing was not discontinued u can still get it thru the handset upgrade program or retail cost 449.99

  • I think his comment was supposed to be a joke about how bad the Wing is…

    Geez, these guys definitely don’t know how to take sarcasm. He was just joking that the Wing is so freaking old already, that it seems like it came out in ’97. Then the other guy comes back with the “history of T-Mobile”. Hilarious.

  • Very interesting blog, i have added it to my fovourites, greetings
