I wonder how Radio Shack will react to going from 25 followers to over 9000 overnight

RadioShack was popular in the 90s - 00s. They have no following now. Thus, no Twitter followers since everyone buys from Amazon, eBay, or other places on the Internet.

I guess you're too young to know judging from your profile picture.

Like I said before, the hashtag part was not in the article when I originally read it - was not in there at all. Read what I said. Thank you.

Not if it's locked into AT&T. It has to be unlocked by AT&T before we can use it on T-Mobile.

So would that be a DM tweet or a regular tweet that mentions @RadioShack name. I'm guessing with the hashtag mentioned it probably should be a regular tweet.

You could get the AT&T model unlocked and have AWS band LTE on T-Mobile. Wouldn't have HSPA AWS though. I believe it's the case with the Verizon model too since they also started using AWS for LTE, and all Verizon phones now are GSM unlocked out of the box.

All Verizon LTE phones I am pretty sure are GSM unlocked now, the CDMA part of the phone doesn't matter. If you want another example, every Nexus 5 in North America has an identifier to be activated on Sprint, and each one is also unlocked GSM and LTE. And since newer Verizon phones including some from last year have compatibility with the AWS LTE band, which is the primary band T-Mobile uses for LTE, a phone would work fine on the GSM part of the network and LTE if it's available in the area the phone is being used. Only other issue is there's no AWS HSPA+. Only PCS (1900MHz). I've seen the question asked on I think Wired.com. The only Verizon phone that doesn't seem to work with other LTE networks is the Moto X.

Tmo users could win it then sell it cause its free but then again its a phone you might want which sucks

U can probably trade it in.. Unless they force u into a contract if u win, which would suck.

Wait, I thought the G3 was only compatible on GSM networks. How is it on Sprint?

*facepalm*

I guess Verizon wouldn't have their own version either then

AC - do you have a link to the fine print?

I'm assuming this will require a contract, but all interweb searches lead back to you as the source. I'd like the phone, but won't take a "free" phone for a contract.

I dislike these contest that use social networks to win. We are on your site not theirs. A world controlled by advertising.

Don't use twitter. Same reason I passed on the one plus one until it's released to the general public. Probably the only 31 year old in America who doesn't. I would LOVE A G3 though. Pass

Just sent my tweet. I have Verizon (HTC One M7) and Tmo (Nexus 4). Played with the demo model at Best Buy on Saturday. Awesome display and takes great pix.

The LG G3 at Best Buy was just a working demo. There were none in stock and no dates listed when Best Buy would be getting them.

Yeah that's what I meant, it'd still be awesome to play with it. Which best buy that you went to has it?

This should be open to people that don't have twitter too. Like to people with Facebook accounts or other accounts.
