We’re feeling generous. We’ve got three top handsets to give away to one lucky winner, and all you need to do is finish a simple sentence for us. Combined SIM-free price? over £700! You know, back in our day we had to actually work for our smartphones…

We’ve got an HTC Desire S, HTC Incredible S and HTC Wildfire S to dish out to one lucky winner. One person will walk away with the means to kit out your family with a smartphone each; Maybe the Incredible S for you, the Desire S for your brother and the Wildfire S for your mum? Brownie points for life.

The Desire S has a 1GHz 8255 Snapdragon processor, along with 768MB of RAM and 1.1GB of built in storage, expandable with a microSD card.

The camera’s got a five megapixel sensor, capable of 720p video, and is joined by a VGA fixed focus lens at the front of the Desire S, for video chat and vanity photos.

Read our HTC Incredible S review

The Incredible S is a similarly-specced beast, but with a larger 4-inch display and ups the camera quality to 8-Megapixels. The Wildfire S, meanwhile, is the pocket-friendly 3.2-inch micro handset that shrinks Android without scrimping on features.

What are you going to do with three handsets? Dish them out to your loved ones, of course. Become a sort of HTC gang, or just kit your entire family out with smartphones. It’s up to you.

    I want to win 3 smart phones because in the past year my monster of a daughter who is 16months old has dropped 2 down the loo, I wouldn’t be greedy and keep all to myself, i would give the other 2 to my parents for all the kindness and support they have given me over the years

    I deserve to win three top HTC handsets because..
    They would be the perfect final ingredient in my “Shorelands Teckkie Pie.”
    Take 1 Electric pig,
    Add 1 editor at large
    Cram it with heaps of quality tech news and reviews
    Drizzle in some English, Irish, Brummie and Brazilian.
    Mash it all up.
    Discard all the irrelevant nonsense
    Then add a dollop of unabashed gut feeling opinion
    Lastly serve cool with lashings of experience and knowledge.
    Tuck in!!!

    I alone know the handsets real names, the ones you’ve given
    them clever anagrams for, and so only I can talk with them as they want to be
    talked with. So if you don’t work for HTC, or Electricpig, look away now.

    Yes, HTC Desire S is really ‘Rides Chest’, maybe a statement
    of the obvious, but true.  And HTC
    Incredible S is most definitely ‘Chic Slender Bit’, something I’m partial to J. It is also true that
    it ‘bisects children’ if one doesn’t get an Incredible but their brother,
    sister or friend does, so should probably give one to each and every child in
    the country. As for HTC Wildfire S, definitely ‘Rich Wild Fest’.

    Not only do I alone know the handsets real names, I also
    tell jokes, which will keep the phones entertained while I decide which one I’ll
    keep and which family members the other two will go to.  I could start off with a kids joke, like ‘Q:”What
    did the apple skin say to the Apple”? A: “I’ve got you covered”’, before moving
    on to something like ‘A polar bear walks into a pub and says “Give me a Gin
    and……………… Tonic”. “Why the long pause?” asks the landlord. Bear
    answers “I dunno, I’ve always had them”’.

    I might also sing songs to the phones while I think. Maybe “Fly
    Away On My Zephyr”  by Red Hot Chilli
    Peppers, as I always thought the lyrics were “Fly Away On My Cell Phone”, which
    struck me as quite odd, but also quite appealing.

    Anyway, where was I up to? That’s right. Only I know the
    handsets names, and I’ll have entertained them with jokes and songs.  So, I hope you can see that I’m the best
    person to look after them while I put them with people who’ll look after them
    (me being one, of course).

    Which brings me to who I think I would pair them with. I
    think my love of chic slender bits would win out in the end and I’d take
    Incredible home with me. I also don’t want to really separate the phones too
    much (still got thoughts of all that bisecting) so right now, I think I’d pair them
    both up with my parents, who could do with ‘smart’ening up. But then maybe the
    phones would decide for me.

    Back to another joke. An oldie, that these spanking new HTC
    phones won’t have heard, but should appreciate…

    A couple of guys
    are out hunting deer on the hills when one of them drops to the ground. His
    friend checks for breathing but can’t make any out, and his eyes have rolled
    back in his head. So he whips out his mobile and, fast as he can, calls 999. Shaking,
    he tells the operator: “My friend is dead! What can I do?”. The
    operator calmly replies: “Just take it easy Sir. I can help. First, let’s
    make sure he’s dead.” There’s a brief silence, followed by the sound of a
    gun shot, after which the guy comes back on the line. “OK, now what?”

    Send these lovelies
    to me and I promise to give them a good home. Thank you :-) .

    I deserve to win three top HTC handsets because my current HTC phone isn’t a HTC phone. It’s a H. RIP letters T&C :(

  • R_denyer

    Im 35 and a mum to four, but times are hard and we’re pretty poor.
    The phones we own and basic and old, but still they’re worth their weight in gold.
    We always text, call and tweet, arranging meals and times to meet.
    My kids are grown their in their teens and only a parent knows what that means.
    Lots of nagging, wanting cash moaning that their phones are trash.
    So help me please electric pig, pick me to win phones my kids will dig!!!

    I deserve to win three top HTC handsets because, well since a picture tells a thousand words, I’d let my current phone do the talking or not since it seems to be a bit temperamental lately (after the 100th time being dropped), and won’t let me hear what the caller is saying sometimes.  Plus I’m hoping the HTC is bigger than the
    Sony Ericsson W300i (yes, you read that right) as the latter is a bit too smallish for my big hands – which is why it’s managed to slip out of my grasp those 100 times.  Why give me 3 HTC?  Spares obviously, just in case my dropping it wasn’t caused by having big hands, but because I’ve got butter fingers.

    I deserve to win three top HTC Handsets because i have never owned a smartphone. Since the age of 8 i have always been ill and had spinal problems i was told that i would never make 18 years of age but am 36 now. I have had many spinal operations which have left me housebound and cannot go anywhere now. I have been diagnosed with a very rare muscle disease which means that i will never be able to go out of my home. if i won these phones i would keep one and give one to my mum who does everything for me and one for my friend. This phone would change my life as i could surf the internet and keep up with what my friends are doing. it can be difficult keeping up with them as i do not have a smartphone so only when they contact me. If i won this phone i could go online and text my friends see what is happening in the world as i do not know. This would really make a difference to my life as i feel so cut off from everyone and the world. I have now been told that i will be getting worse so that is getting me down. I am 36 but i feel so old little things like going out are out of the picture  for me which i miss. i could give one to my mum and my friend who also does not have a smartphone, we could talk and keep up with one another. Isolation is so depressing for me and i sometimes feel like what is there to live for . this phone would not just be a accessory for me but a lifeline. I can go on the internet and keep up with the latest news

    I deserve to win three top HTC handsets because I’ve only got a very basic Nokia 2760 and my two brothers would love smartphones too. Then there would be no excuse, we’d have to talk to each other. :-) Although I suppose with a smartphone we could email, or facebook message or tweet…hmmm I’ve not thought this through. Anyway, wherever we are, we could then read electricpig or sähkö sika as perhaps it’s called in Finland where one of my brothers is.

  • fiona

    ive had 3 phones in total fall in the toilet , 2 phones that i ran over with my car after they fell out my pocket before getting in, 1 phone fell in the bath,but they were crappy phones anyway. so new stylish phones would be taped to my wrist and kept away from baths, toilets and out of my pockets

    Ahem, please cue Fresh Prince of Bel Air theme music….

    Now, this is the story all about how

    My mobile got
    flipped-turned upside down

    And I’d like to
    text a minute

    Just sit  right there

    I’ll tell you how I
    became incensed by my cell nightmare

    To a killer mobile contract
    I was sworn and caged
    On the call centre
    line was where I spent most of my days

    Ringin out, textin’ faxin’ all cool

    And paying for 0800
    calls, outright cruel
    And the trouble of
    devices
    Who were up to no
    good
    Startin making
    trouble in my neighborhood
    I got another fare
    hike and my smartphone got dear
    I said ‘I don’t
    even get unlimited internet on this freakin high fare!”

    I rifled for an app
    and when it downloaded there
    The software
    crashed and on Facebook I could no longer share
    If anything I can
    say is that this app was not foursquare

    But I thought ‘Man forget it’ – ‘No more mobile
    repairs!”

    I pulled up this
    contest about HTC and it was great
    Old shabby phones
    could be thrown into a crater
    I looked up new ringtones
    And I was finally clear
    I would love to
    come home to three mobiles with flair

    I’m angry, I’m grouchy, I’m mad at my phone,

    who won ?

  • http://www.facebook.com/Antf3 Neil Taylor

    Why should i win, win what, mmm, 3 phones, perhaps its for my 3 ears, do i have 3 NO. So why would i wish to win, could be for my 3 kids, but i only have 2 thaat live at home so it wouldnt be for them,. Could be to hide from the wife so i can lead three lives, but one is enough so i wouldnt want 3 wives. 
    Why then i should ask you should i win, well i dont no, my son nicks mine and he is only eight, my daughter borrows and looses mine constantly, and the wife, well you no women. 
    To get time to write this i have had to lock myself in the bog for a few hours and listen to all the whinging outside, perhaps i should have gone to my own house first, guess i will need to open the door when the police arrive.
    So maybe i should win this as i will need to take time off work to explain to the police why i am in someone elses toilet at the time of writing this and therefore cannot afford to kit my kids out with fones.
    But really i ineed the fones so i caan talk to my daughter and son, i mean the only time she talks to me is on FB and thats when i am siitting at the other side ot the room, mind you there is a downside to this also. If i was to win then the wife could get hold of me, can i get this go there do that and all this before i go home and cook the supper clean the dogs paint the house and then when all this is done i am forced to taxi kids everwhere, 

    So really is this a pleading for these fones or a new family, mmm, well i canna afford the old family so a new one is out of the question, as is a new fone i i dinna win.
    But now the banging is getting out of hand so i guess i will hae to stop writing and hope for the best, good luck to all and ooops entry is gained
    phones please help
