Would love one, to replace an iphone 5s which got dropped down the toilet by accident. Haven't had an android phone since my samsung s3 which was a dog.

Replacing a iphone 5 on crutches

Swype on iOS is detrimental to accurate typing. Apologies in advance.

I suppose it's a bit cheeky me entering a competition for a phone locked to Vodafone, but hey, it's not against the rules as far as I can tell. :-D


I would be replacing an iPhone SE, and it would be my first venture into the big bad world of Android. As far as network security goes I was tossing up whether to include a picture of my Raspberry Pi 3 which was last used to trivially defeat a particular security feature we were evaluating, but instead, here's a picture of me from last week's internal awards night dressed up ready to defend the network from all the rest of you lot.

I am looking at replacing my Samsung S4, as much as I like it it is dying a nasty death.


Having a 6-month baby, funds are limited to upgrade.

I've been dragging my feet on replacing a Vodafone Smart Mini for the last three years. It was meant to be temporary.



As for network security... nobody is safe from matrix-style binary and someone wearing a hoodie. Coming to a news headline near you soon.

I'm tied to a work phone, but I have a wife and kids who would love to get their paws on one of these beasties to replace their aging Sammies.

I have a trusty old 2nd Gen Moto G that is still chugging along but has hit the wall with software updates. One of these beauties would be more than welcome.

I would love to replace my wife's iPhone 5 (its so slow now and that screen is tiny).  This is one of the funniest network security cartoons Ive seen. No matter how many controls you have, you always have a "Dave"!  Sorry for any Daves out there :-)

I'm using an iPhone 6Plus, Im over it. Not the phone or Apple but the idea of annual upgrades. Its a device thats it.


I have been lucky to win one of these giveaways, so IF I win, I will not take it, but I will transfer to the member that I choose based on past history. Ive been here a while. Pay It Forward so to speak.
