went to the Cingular Store Today and asked about the iPhone. I asked them If I could buy a new contract now and then buy the iPhone when it is released. They said that you have to get a new contract when the iPhone is released in order to pay $500 (discounted price) for the phone. So LeBlog has to open up a new cingular account with contract in June in order to get the $500 iPhone from DealsPlus.

what i would suggest would be that dealsplus go on and declare a winner as scheduled however, delay the prize. if im not mistaken the iphone comes out in june so if you guys wait before deciding on one route consider waiting. that way hopefully more options will arise as time passes and a better plan can be formed. also the user who wins this should not be at that big of a disadvantage either because he/she would not have been able to purchase the iphone right away anyway and this will also keep him/her hooked on to this site at least until more info is released and you guys can decide.

i would have to agree that you would be getting the iPhone, which is great, but getting the gift card first, then buying the iPhone with it wouldnt be as exciting. Personally, id love getting a package, tearing it open and finally laying my eyes on an iPhone.

True, but when you buy the iPhone with the gift card, the result will be the same, you will still get the phone in a package, all it does is just delay the iPhone (and maybe add more exciteness).

And lets not get carried into politics. Just let Deals Plus handle everything, you guys dont really have to worry about anything. If Vin has a problem about something, he will ask you like he did with the issue of how to deliver the iPhone to the winner.

Since we're all (or at least me) are just killing time waiting to find out the winner of this contest, I have some blog entries about user experience/user centered design up at: http://hcvl.hci.iastate.edu:4489/articles/tag/mikeoren that some of you may or may not be interested in. The blog is for a class, but I enjoy writing it. I figure it's somewhat relevant to this iPhone thread, since a lot of user experience/user centered design research went into creating the iPhone interface to begin with (I'm curious to see the results of their research though... since I find it odd that people would so willing give up the tactile feedback of a phone).

About time for this deal to expire, I would think. If I recall correctly it was posted at about 10 or 11 AM CST yesterday and it's about 7 PM CST at the moment. I expected it to run a few hours over, but it's getting up there now. Not that I'm complaining, I'm just anxious to see who won (more than likely not me--I only found one person to sign up and I did just win like 2 days ago...)

BTW, did anybody else get Diddy Kong Racing for the DS today?

mikeisme77 Feb 06, 2007
I actually got rid of my phone with a camera, bluetooth, etc. not too long ago because the signal/call quality was crap, and I didn't use half those features. I now just have a basic Nokia phone that does one thing (make calls) but does it very well. I'm mostly interested in the iPhone for the whole multi-touch interface since I've been wanting to take a crack at developing some multi-touch software apps... Of course, at the moment I can't do that with the iPhone either, but I'm assuming somebody will crack it so that I will be able to do that... We have a multi-touch screen that we developed at my grad school, but it's not as nice as the one developed at that NY university--plus I'm not on that project so I don't really have access to it :(

I just finished my first midterm, so I'm just chillin at the university library till my next one. One thought came up after reading a few comments. Many of you are worried how DealsPlus is going to get the iPhone/$499 to the winner. It is complicated since we don't know the exact specs and release information from apple/cingular. I'm sure as it gets closer to June, dealsplus can continue to post more info about how they are going to get the iPhone or money to the winner. The thought that came up was, does Cingular offer gift cards? If they do, DealsPlus can easily purchase a $499 gift card from Cingular and send that to the winner. This way, they will have to spend it at the Cingular store and most likely get the iPhone. This would solve a lot of issues regarding how the winner will get the money/iPhone. Can anyone confirm if Cingular offers giftcards? If not, will apple offer giftcards specific to the iPhone to be used at the cingular store? I think the Cingular gift cards are more plausible though. Let me know what you think.

http://www.888extramoney.net/CingularConsumer/index.asp?Message=NoMatch

Visit a participating Cingular store to purchase a Gift Card.

So the winner can receive a gift card from dealspl.us towards their purchase of the iPhone

That's really not a bad idea. But it sort of kills the iPhone mood as one would use it to pay their bill. Then again its a good giveaway, just not the greatness of the iPhone. Whatever is easy for you guys.

The only potential problem with the gift card is paying the sales tax for the iPhone. Although that really isn't that big of a deal (unless you also have to pay tax on the prize, but I think you only have to pay taxes on prizes if the prize value is $600 or more).
vote
ujaas Feb 06, 2007
the winner i think can spare around $30 - $40 for a FREE iPhone lol but paying tax would be nice. they can ask the winner from which state they are located from

but i think we should first clarify with cingular b4 we finalize any thing
vote
mikeisme77 Feb 06, 2007
Yeah, sales tax wouldn't be all that bad. It's just a problem if you have to pay sales tax AND prize tax (the tax on prizes is at least 25% or something ridiculously high--which is why you never take the car, you take the cash instead... unless you already have the cash to cover the tax on the car). But like I said, I think the value is low enough that it should be okay.

we dont have to say its a prize, ITS A GIFT!!
vote
mikeisme77 Feb 06, 2007
Actually... that may be possible (although a thin legal line) to get away with... It could be counted as a "thank you" gift for contribution to the site. Or, on an even thinner line, payment to an independent contractor for services rendered. But due to the wording of the post, that would be hard to defend to the IRS/in court (since the wording implies contest). But hey, our legal system is pretty crazy any way, so you never know what you can get away with...

How do you guys suggest dealspl.us will pay the $499?

If they are sold in stores dealspl.us will have to be there.

If it is sold online and they buy it, won't the phone bill show up on their credit card bill?

So how do you think the winner will recieve the iPhone?

This is getting complicated but im pretty sure one of you guys can figure out the solution.

Maybe they can give you the iPhone as a present, because on some sites you can send items to others as presents, maybe Apple will have some kind of feature like that. Or Deals Plus can buy a gift card for $499 and the winner could use that to buy the iPhone themselves.
