  1. Winning a samsung Smartphone will defininitely give me an edge in getting quick reference to books and by helping my fellow students in every aspect of life with this Samsung Black Jack 2 I keep my data safe and secure with Samsung Smartphone in my hands I would be a complete person

    Im a student and a smart phone will make my work easier. This will help me to get in touch with the latest info. i dont no any thing abt this phone bt after reading the specs. i felt this is a really gd phone.
    Last i wanna say im visiting this site frequently n keep up the good work…

    student with no job have one of the first nokia phones produced and the battery only lasts usually just under 2 hours so i have to bring the charger everywhere with me.everyone i know slags and jokes about my phone and i would love to see the look on everyones face when i take this beauty out of my pocket.Unfortunately I can never save up enough money to upgrade to a new phone!!.

  4. Alison says:

    I want to win this as I think this smartphone is fantastic, massive memory, office suite, camera so much to do on it on the move and the 7 hours talktime means it will not have a low battery which I find with alot of other phones.

    I deserve to win it as I have been a very good girl and this is on my list for Father Christmas 😉

  5. Hi, I am Mal Franks executive of Troops Live Aid 2009… As a serving soldier it is becoming increasingly difficult for me to keep up with the organisation and planning of this huge event, whilst on duty. To win this phone would be a fantastic bonus to our cause, data recd is often of high security, and emails often need an instance reply! And unfortunately my laptop does not fit in my pocket! lol…. So to win this would be fantastic….
    Many thanks

    I am soon to become a ‘grown up’ with a graduate job in the finance sector – but please note that as a student I am currently as poor as Iceland. Choking on a bowl of credit crunch for breakfast every morning, with a mobile phone for mere mortals, I feel too poor and technically inept for such a fancy environment. Winning this Smartphone will bring me up to speed with the cool kids, so that I too can pretend to read important emails on the tube!

  7. Elaine Lane says:

    I’d like to win this and give it to my husband (didn’t get him much for christmas) He drives a truck and his current phone, an old “brick”, can only have a wired earpiece, so every time he turns the wheel or leans out of the window to reverse we get cut off!

  8. jaycee2 says:

    I`ve just started a phd in Gerontology-the study of ageing-and I`m computorless. Finding it very difficult to keep ahead and on top of current research info. To have such access-as well as making use of all the features via the Samsung Blackjack-would be wonderful.
    I think I deserve to win because I`ll be old myself, by the time I could afford one.

  9. DonMarBu says:

    Christmas found me reminiscing about friends and family I’ve been missing,
    With this Samsung phone Id stay in touch and the distance between us wouldn’t seem so much,
    Id email, chat and photo share,
    My distant loved ones would feel so near.
    Next Christmas I’d have no ‘Silent Nights’
    As my social life would reach new heights.

  10. Hazel says:

    I want to win this phone to give to my son
    He’s only got a basic battered one.
    He’s an impoverished student that is true –
    (And supporting him ensures we’re skint too)
    Why do I deserve it – well I have to say
    Our sink blocked at 10 pm on Christmas Day
    That spoiled our perfect Day, but never fear –
    You can give me a great start to the New Year!

  11. Janis says:

    I only ever get the familys’ hand-me-downs. Currently using my daughters old phone from 2003! Did think I might get a new one for Christmas as they keep moaning about messages not getting through, “will you turn your phone on”, when it’s on already!!. Couple of times had a message delivered a month later. Would love a new state of the art handpeice to be the envy of all.

  12. Jessica says:

    I would love to win this phone as I have an extremely busy life and e-mail on the move would be a great advantage. I can’t afford to buy one however as I have to look after a sick relative.

  13. domingo says:

    – I’m currently working on the space-station, well just outside it- and my sat-phone is just drifting off as I write towards the southern hemisphere after I lost it grabbing for my screwdriver (which as far as I can tell is about to hit the atmosphere somewhere over Norwich I think). I’ve been told the screwdriver cost them a million dollars to make, I’m not sure how much I’ll have to pay, but I bet it’ll be astronomical (drum hit) – so a phone’d be handy…..

  14. fayaaz says:

    i want this phone plainly because i am a student starting my business, so i need to go to meetings and conferences. i cannot use a t610i from since before i was born i think. i could use this phone in all the ways it offers and the applications are worth alot to me. i have been interested in the samsung phones and other products since i got my tv and foot spa and the samsung tocco that my brother was using but didnt give it to me. i could real do with this phone as it would help me so much in starting my business on the move.

  15. Rich says:

    I have reviewed the Samsung BlackJack II for some time now. This is a great phone with easy to use capabilities. For my job I send a lot of emails and text messages. The QWERTY Keyboard would be of great benefit and time efficiency for my work. I deal with seniors and being able to get the information quickly to and from my clients is essential. The 3G Network is also one of the fastest networks available. I would love the opportunity to win this phone and share it with my peers.

  16. Reggie Jerusalem says:

    In my family, I am the late bloomer of having a new cellphone. Now, my family has a newest sliding phnoes & a touch screen too! Only me who haven’t any latest phone today. I am just waiting for my chance to have my own phone too. But it seems that I’m tired of it. So, when I finally saw your contest here, I was delighted. hopefully, I could win your latest phone. ^^, Thanks if you could do! =)

    1.I want it because it’s got the software I need, the apps I want and the look I desire.
    2.I need it because I’m ‘banking’ on not being ‘21’ again and it would make me look smart at any ‘table’
