To All The iPhone 4 Haters (A Reality Giveaway)

By: Jenna Gonzalez (Editor In Chief)

Nary a fortnight ago, the newest, most exciting gadget yet was unveiled upon the world. “4″ they called it. Like its predecessors, it was met with fanfare and celebration all across the globe. With 1.7 million units sold in the first three days and over 8 million sold to date, it’s no wonder “4″ is the number to cozy up to nowadays. However, it’s no secret that it’s had its fair share of flaws and criticisms. The elephant among them: the dreaded signal/reception issue that purportedly causes customers to experience higher dropped-call rates. Why? Well, apparently it’s “no bueno” to have metal touching the antenna, which is what did. So to make a long story short, all the haters decided to band together and make a huge issue out of “Antennagate” despite the fact that less than 1% of owners complained about it. So what do we the think? Aside from the ridiculous similarity to the blatant “Toyota Sabotage” earlier this year, it’s pretty lame. Why? Well, I happen to like the new iPhone a lot! Like A LOT! Sure, nothing is perfect, and I’m sure many of us totally realize it. That being said, the iPhone 4 is pretty darn awesome. So to celebrate the awesomeness of the most talked-about phone to hit the market yet, we’re giving away over a dozen iPhone 4′s! That’s right, where else can you play for all those prizes? Only here at MRT! 

Oh the shiny iPhones!

So what’s the big giveaway? How about a shiny new Apple iPhone 4 every week for the next twelve weeks! Oh and not just any iPhone. How about the top of the line 32 GB model! That’s right, every single week, one uber-lucky iPhone lover will win their very own sparkling 32 GB iPhone 4 worth $700 no-contact! No, these are not unlocked, although a quick search online will yield you some unlocked iPhones for up to $999! Of course, we don’t endorse illegal unlocking methods…but hey, it’s your iPhone. The very first winner will be announced on Monday August 2, 2010 followed by one winner every following Monday. Easy enough to grasp right??

Deathgrip? What's that?

A new face on our classic giveaway: As you know, MRT always has the best prizes. That’s a given. For our iPhone 4 giveaway, we’ve decided to make it a contest. Why? I’ve been told that if you don’t have a Facebook, you’re probably living under a rock. So basically, I’m a cavewoman since I don’t have one. If you happen to be one of the select few like myself who live under such a rock, don’t worry, there’s a special section below on how you can try winning one. Like all our other contests, there are three simple things you can do. Ready?

For a simple Facebook post, one of these could be yours!


For Facebook users: This one’s for you folks! First, if you haven’t already done so, add MRT to your “likes”. Second, in no more than 2 sentences, post your “iPhone Haters themed” comment our wall under the iPhone 4 giveaway. Finally, you MUST immediately re-post the contest link on your own wall. These steps should take you about 80-100 seconds (we tried it) so that makes it super simple and convenient. Plus, you only need to do this once a week! That’s how simple it is! However, it’s very important you follow these easy directions. If you make a mistake, you’re disqualified for the week (that, and you probably don’t need an iPhone 4, since it would be way too complicated & out of place for you & the rock you live under.)

Yes, they are 32 GB top of the line iPhone 4's

Now, for those who don’t have a Facebook account: In no more than 2 sentences, simply post a comment below on “iPhone Haters”…Be creative, original, honest, whatever you like. Just don’t copy someone else’s entry. We’ve seen this before and that’s a good way to disqualify you. Only ONE comment can be submitted per person, per week. One very lucky non-Facebook winner will be chosen at the end of August, followed by another one at the end of September. Basically, 2 iPhone 4′s will be awarded this way.

If you’ve got Twitter: Follow us at and RETWEET the contest post as many times a week as you like (more entries, more chances to win). One very lucky person from Twitter will win their own iPhone 4 on September 1, 2010.

You could be unboxing your very own from MRT!

Ok now for the uber-important qualifying rules: Due to the nature and configuration of the product, the MRT Apple iPhone 4 Facebook contest is only open to all North American (yes Canada, you’re in there too) Residents 18 yrs and over! If you are not 18, please ask for your parent’s permission and have them sign up for you. Winner(s) agree(s) to provide & confirm to us their full name, valid email, valid shipping address and telephone number. All such personal information are for our security & validation purposes (we don’t want giving prizes to convicted serial killers, child molesters and/or general psychopaths), and as such, will not be shared in any way or form with anyone in order to protect your privacy. All winners are chosen at random using a randomizer in an effort to make everything fair, and as such, we do not determine the outcome of each contest. In addition, staff editors and their immediate families (defined as parents, children, siblings & spouses of staff editors) are not eligible to enter any of our contests. We reserve the right to disqualify any entry we feel violates any law or is being unfair/innapropriately vulgar/derogatory in any way we see it. Winner(s) agree(s) to the above simple rules. Best of luck!

    Haters have been hating the iPhone 4 for like forever… someone should pick on their symbian and androids even more innumerable flaws!

  • Matthew

    Iphone haters will yet again have someone to hate on when you guys hook me up with this sexy ass beast of a phone.

  • Anonymous

  • Darlene W

    Don’t be a hater -be a lover! The iPhone 4 looks great!

  • Roland

    if you think outside the box, then you’ll like iphone 4 so much, but if you are too familiar using flint and stones then go take another phone except iphone!!

  • IwantIphone4

    think outside of the box and like what’s inside of the iphone4 box.

  • Pscott2010

    All work and no play for iphone 4 haters make iphone 4 haters dull friends.

    I’d love to have some FaceTime with a new IPhone 4!

  • Joshua

    To all you iphone haters, why do you not want the orginal? If you honestly gave it a chance you would understand why so many people love the iphone.

  • eunoia

    DJs come and hang out at my nightclub to steal my DJ sets. They use that “identify a tune” app and every once in awhile its in the database, although usually spelled wrong…

  • eunoia

    Yes, I know I just spelled “it’s” wrong below…

  • Bw213

    You can have all your random versions of android that are not compatible or upgradable. I’ll stick with IOS 4 which can run on any iPhone.

    I was looking at someone’s iPhone 4 and I could have been a hater, but instead I became a lover. Life is so much easier that way; I strongly suggest the haters try becoming lovers.

  • Synon

    I asked God for an iPhone, but I know God doesn’t work that way. So I stole an iPhone and asked for forgiveness.

  • Liz

    Now that my eyes have adjusted from being under that rock for so long, I can clearly see how cool the iPhone 4G would be. Once my fingers un-cramp it will be a breeze to use.

  • Gaurav R

    The haters can be content with re-branded HTC EVOs with the tag “HD” on them. I on the other hand prefer the “i”.

    Is the contest still on btw? No news anywhere and no one seems to be tweeting or writing on facebook about winning. No updates on the iPad page either.. Just asking.

    Yeah I’m the same guy who posts via “Guest” using the name “Gaurav” usually and going by “Gaurav Rajasekar” on facebook when I share your posts there.

  • Michael K

    iPhone haters gonna hate, don’t be jealous when you ain’t in style!

  • Jennifer W

    I’m not a hater of the iPhone, I’m a lover of it! Would love to win the latest and greatest new 4!!!

  • Pscott2010

    For all you iphone haters, don’t buy one. For everyone else, I’ll meet you at the Apple store. (Thanks MyRealityTech for such great give aways. There are no other sites that even come close!)

  • SandraDW

    iPhone hatred don’t know what they’re missing! I had to sell my 32 Gb 3GS so I could keep my car from repossession and I miss it so much!!! Thanks for having an alt method to enter since FB is not my thing!! :0)

  • Sarah Jane

    My husband pays more attention to his iphone 3GS than me. I need one that’s better than his.

  • Rand Alhodaif

    First I lost my old mobile while I was vacationing in sri lanka. So since July I didn’t have a decent mobile … and I didn’t got enough money to buy new one … so I started saving money to buy iphone 4, and now when I get the money my bad luck comes around again, I wasn’t able to buy one since there was only 7000 devices in my country, you can tell they’re all are gone ’cause there is more than 20,000,000 people in this land. :)
