You loved the first giveaway, so I'm proud to announce that we're back with The Greatest Tech Giveaway Ever 2!  Thanks to our awesome partner Negri Electronics (http://www.negrielectronics.com), we're giving away a BUNCH of unlocked, hot smartphones - and best of all, YOU get to choose your prize!   We're offering a choice between the unlocked Samsung Galaxy S III GT-i9300 (16 GB, blue), HTC One X S720e 32 GB black/grey (unlocked), LG Optimus 4X HD P880 (16 GB, black), or Samsung Galaxy Note GT-N7000 (16 GB, blue).

Here's how you enter.  Head over to our Facebook app at http://apps.facebook.com/pdsweepstakes, log into your account, and authorize it.  From there, you can receive your first two votes by choosing your prize and LIKING PhoneDog on Facebook.  Better yet, you can receive additional tickets by referring friends and taking advantage of our You Win, We Both Win! program.  It's easy to refer a friend, and if they win, you win too!

More about our YOU WIN, WE BOTH WIN! (refer-a-friend) bonus program:

"YOU WIN, WE BOTH WIN" is a nice new enhancement that allows you an even greater chance of winning!  Think of it like this: when you refer a friend and they enter your profile ID, you're getting access to their ticket numbers as well.  If any of your referrer's ticket numbers are drawn, you both win!  Let's say you refer 10 friends.  Those friends add you as the referring friend, and then they choose a prize (1 ticket) and LIKE PhoneDog (1 ticket).  That's a total of two (2) ticket numbers for them, and two (2) ticket numbers for you!  Multiply that by 10 (number of friends you referred), and that's 20 new ticket opportunities!  If one of their ticket numbers are drawn, both you and your friend will win a Samsung Galaxy S III, Samsung Galaxy Note, LG Optimus 4X HD, or HTC One X!

Start sending those emails, tweets, and Facebook messages to get those referrals going (using the hashtag #pdsweeps).  Remember to give them your Facebook profile ID so they can enter it in the Sweepstakes application so you both get the credit for it!

A little more in-depth about the contest:

All you have to do is accept and submit the sweepstakes entry form at http://apps.facebook.com/pdsweepstakes and "LIKE" facebook.com/phonedog from the time of registration through the sweepstakes period.  Existing PhoneDog Facebook fans are able to enter as well - just go into the sweepstakes app and follow the required steps, and you're entered to win!  A total of two (2) direct entries can be obtained immediately - one (1) for selecting a prize and one (1) for liking PhoneDog on Facebook.

PhoneDog's Greatest Tech Giveaway Ever 2 runs until November 22, 2012 at 6 PM EDT/3 PM PDT.  Winners will be selected starting on September 11, 2012 via a live broadcast on PhoneDog's UStream broadcast page  ( /live/ ) at 6 PM EDT/3 PM PDT.  For more information on drawings, event times, and dates, check out http://on.fb.me/pdevents.  Additionally, you can always view your total entries and ticket numbers by going to the "MY ENTRIES" tab within the sweepstakes application.

Facebook user Hi Justin - Under the My Entries tab on the sweepstakes app you should see two ticket #'s. One ticket number for selecting your prize and another ticket # because You "liked" our PhoneDog facebook page.
