Ladies and gentlemen, we have our first dongle winner!

We’ve been positively swamped with entries for our dongle and Nokia 5530 giveaway. But after sifting through a mountain of messages we’ve finally managed to pick our first daily winner. Childofthe1980s, step forward now to collect your prize.

Tasked with explaining in a Tweet why he should win our competition, our brilliantly monikered entrant came up with: “Spirits low, finances chronic - Nokia would be the perfect tonic!”

As our first daily winner, Childofthe1980s is now soon to be the proud owner of a dongle thanks to the good people at 3. Better still, her win also means that she’s now in the running for the grand prize of a Nokia 5530 mobile phone courtesy of, which will be given away to daily winner whose Tweet we deem to be best overall.

To be in with a chance of winning, Tweet in exactly 10 words why you deserve a prize (and be sure to add a #top10 hash tag in your tweet so that we can find your entry).

There are now four dongles up for grabs, with one given away daily between now and the end of the week. Friday’s daily winner and the owner of the brand new Nokia 5530 will be announced on Monday 24th.


Hard on the heels of Monday's winner, we're proud to announce that @psychicsheep has become the second of our competition entrants to scoop a dongle. @psychicsheep's winning Tweet read: "#top10 Functional luxury and really cool, for exceptional mobiles top10 rule!".

If you want to join our winners on the champions' podium, you've got just three more days to do so. For details of how to enter see the blog posts above.


And then there were three. Today’s winner of a super cool 3 dongle is one sopsham01 who won us around with a neat pun on the XpressMusic part of the Nokia’s 5530 moniker. Her winning Tweet read: “Express desire to win, old phone goes in the bin#top10”.

Along with the week's previous winners, Sopsham01 is now also in the running for the grand prize of a spanking new Nokia 5530. But until then there are a further two 3 dongles to be given away. Interested? Of course you are. See above for instructions on how to enter.


Our penultimate 3 dongle winner is the shadowy figure of penumbral, who Tweeted: “Ideas rocky, rhyming rockier, really need to win this nokia ;.-) #top10.”

This man/woman of mystery scored highly with our panel of judges for their inventive rhyming of 'Nokia' and 'rockier' and dare we say it almost Hip-Hop-like flow. Penumbral, you've got a lot more going for you the ideas front than you imagine.

In other news, today is your last chance to enter our competition. Get your entries in by 6:00 pm to be in with a chance of scooping the final free 3 dongle and the grand prize of the Nokia 5530 XpressMusic.


After a week that saw our inbox positively overloaded with entries, Top 10 Mobile Phones' competition has now been closed. And we’re proud to announce that the winner of the Nokia 5530 XpressMusic mobile phone is none other than psychicsheep. Contrary to hi moniker, our ovine entrant emerged not as a meek follower, but as an original thinker with a nice line in Tweeting rhyme.

But our psychic friend isn't not the only person going home with a prize. Joining him on the podium is V8 gamer, who has scooped the fifth and final 3 dongle. V8, we’re a bit over-familiar like that, impressed us with his Tweet which read: “#top10 Nokia and top10 reign supreme, both setting standards seldom seen”.

We’d like to thank you all very much for all your entries. And thanks also to 3 and for kindly donating the prizes. If you didn’t win this time, fear not - we’ll be running another great competition very, very soon.
