On August 13th, I prematurely launched the iPad 2 giveaway sponsored by Vonage's "Time To Call" app and then stopped it less than a day later. I was so excited about the whole deal that I had mistakenly jumped the gun on the contest. My official contest period is today, August 24th, through Sunday, August 28th. Many of you have already entered this giveaway and I want you to know that you do not have to do anything of the things over that you have already done (BUT I have added one additional way of entering the giveaway, which you will see at the bottom of the post.) There were 207 entries on the last post, so they will be given comment numbers 1-207. The first comment on THIS post will be 208, the next one 209 and so on. There will be ONE winner of an iPad 2 (which starts at $499.00) and an iTunes gift card. Sweet deal, right?
All of this is possible, of course, due to Vonage and their new "Time To Call" app. Here are a few facts about it:
I found GREAT joy in looking up different countries to call after easily downloading this free app recently on my iPhone. I was so thrilled to discover that it was only $1.99 to call Bhutan, $5.99 to call Burkina Faso, $9.99 to call Djibouti, $7.99 to call Eritrea, $2.99 to call the Faroe Islands, $4.99 to call Lesotho... Hey, where are you going? Are you upset that there is no calling plan for Isle of Man? Hey, I bet they're working on it! I would love, love, love to keep going on these countries, because it is just so stinkin' fun ($6.99 to call Mauritania, but no calling plans for Mayotte!!!), but I see you looking at your watch.
* For an additional 90+ countries, talk up to 15-minutes for $2.99 to $9.99 (excluding applicable taxes)
* Bill directly to your iTunes account

* Also for use on high quality 3G networks in the U.S. and Canada
* For a limited time, unused minutes can be used for additional calls
* No need to be a Vonage home customer, no hidden fees or monthly commitment.
