Do you want a free Droid phone from Verizon? #IWANTADROID

The title says it all. I get the feeling some of you are tired of these Twitter contests, but how can you turn down a free Droid phone from Verizon? The carrier is bringing back their @droidlanding account we saw them use during the Droid X launch, and this time all you have to do is tweet a reason you want a Droid to win one of the seven phones Verizon is giving away.

You can find the full rules on the official site, but here are the basics:

Who wants a Droid? Tweet why you do & begin responses with #IWANTADROID. You could win one & be featured in an upcoming web ad.

  • Visit and follow @droidlanding
  • Tweet the message, “#IWANTADROID____________” (fill in the blank)
  • Users must use the hashtag #IWANTADROID to enter the Contest
  • Limit 10 entries per Twitter Account per Entry Period
  • Subject to Twitter character limitations

There are four entry periods before the end of the year and the first one ends tomorrow.

  • 12:00:01 am ET on 12/1/10 through 11:59:59 pm ET on 12/9/10
  • 12:00:00 am ET on 12/10/10 through 11:59:59 pm ET on 12/16/10
  • 12:00:00 am ET on 12/17/10 through 11:59:59 pm ET on 12/23/10
  • 12:00:00 am ET on 12/24/10 through 11:59:59 pm ET on 12/28/10

Sponsor selected judges will then choose the best tweets based on the following criteria:

  • 50% – feature or use that makes Droid desirable
  • 50% – creativity of written entry

Prizes include:

  • Grand Prize (7x) – Verizon Wireless Droid Phone (model to be decided by Sponsor)
  • Runner Up Prize (28x) – A $50 Verizon Wireless Gift Card

We are in no way part of this contest, but we will be following your contest tweets and retweeting the most annoying entries.

    So in order to participate in this contest, I just tweet a reason and include the word “#iwantadroid” in my tweet and that’s it?

      Did you bother to even read the article or just look at the pretty pictures?!

      You are supposed to write why you want a droid and be creative. Winner(s) will be chosen based off creativity AND “feature or use that makes Droid desirable.
