  1. Krystal Moran says:

    Oh Pretty Please!!! :)

  2. I don’t own a cellphone so this prize would be FAB!

  3. Yes please!

  4. I’ve never had a cool phone before!!!! Opening two apps at once?!? wow

  5. I am embarrassed by my flip phone. A lovely grandma with her 2 grandkids ran me over with her cart in Farm Boy while I was answering my dinosaur. She laughed at me and nodded towards her grandbaby in the cart playing on her fancy-shmancy smart phone. Sigh.

  6. I don’t own a cell phone. No seriously…I’m not making this up. I’ve previously had 2 but gave up on them out of frustration and frankly….I just didn’t need ‘em. But this baby might make me change my mind!

  7. I’d love a new smart phone as I’m expecting baby #1 in March and I’d love a device where I can keep our schedule’s organized. A good camera will also be an important feature to take lots of pics of the new bub :)

  8. I would give it to my husband. Yes, he is a dinosaur that does not own a cell phone! I need it desperately for him so we can coordinate our schedules and be more efficient when I go back to work after mat leave.

  9. Awesome!

  10. I just need one badly! I would love something new and updated! I am excited about the big screen

  11. Chantal Coutu says:

    A new smartphone would be awesome! I have an overly outdated iPhone 3GS, and the pictures it takes are absolutely horrible. Since my smartphone is the only “camera” I carry around everywhere, most of the times the pictures I take of my kids or other things don’t turn out, unless the lighting is super bright. Also, my 3GS is no longer supported, so no updates allowed for my apps or OS. This Samsung Galaxy Note 3 would definitely solve all of those problems! :)

  12. Well since my cell phone ( a flip phone) fell in the toilet about 4 years ago…and I was so sad as It had my fav “Bon Jovi” song as my ring tone!! I have never had a another good phone. A few “pay as you goes” for when I have to travel with my girls but this would make my life much much eaiser….calandars, note pads and scraps of paper allllll gone as I can use my phone!! My daycare business will run that much smoother as well as my job as a mommy of twins!!! Fingers crossed ;)

  13. Really need a new phone..mine only works when it wants to :(

  14. I have a phone, from just over 8 years ago. Yes, you read it right, 8 years. I have been procrastinating buying a new phone because I just don’t want to spend the cash if this one still works.. but a freebie! I’d love that!

  15. Lisa Singleton says:

    I have an old blackberry, that shuts off and reboots itself at least 10 times a day which also eats the battery super quick. I cant afford a new phone so I put up with it lol. This phone would be amazing. I would love to use som ecool new apps.

  16. Jenn Szaraz says:

    My cell phone is from the 1980′s (okay, it just feels that way) because it has no features and lots of things that annoy me! I’d love a new one!

  17. I really don’t need a new phone, I like my HTC that I have now… but my hubby could use one… he still has the old flip phone with no internet and hard to text…. :)

  18. My cell phone is falling apart (I inherited my teenager’s old phone), I would love a new cell phone! Thank you for the great giveaway.

  19. I don’t need a new phone, but my husband does. His phone is some sort of slider thing, with horrible reception.

  20. Becky Bigras says:

    Would love to win this! Thanks for the contest!

  21. I BADLY need one…..still just have the flip talk and text one…so embarrassing lol I need to be modernized!!!!

  22. I need a note because I use my phone more for online then talking so this would be perfect!!

  23. I love the larger screen!

  24. I need a new cellphone so bad because I feel like I am being left out of the new technology that cellphones have these days and my old phone is becoming obsolete and starting become worn out
    With time. The feature I am most excited about is the Multitasking feature
    Because that feature I can do more of the things I want to do and need to do at the same time.

  25. I don’t need a new one especially bad!
    I really like the idea of having a larger screen on my phone!

  26. This would make my dude about the happiest dude in the world.

  27. Would love this! Love the bigger screen

    I like the large screen. Would be perfect to replace a phone and a tablet.

  31. Karen Herrick says:


  32. My boyfriend recently broke his phone and we can’t afford to get a new one right now, the Samsung Galaxy would be an amazing surprise for him for Christmas!

  33. would love it for myself…about time I own one!!

  34. i don’t own a smart phone so I would love to have this one!!

  35. Sunshine G says:

    this would make a wonderful present for a friend who has lost hers!

  36. Andree Morel says:

    This would make a wonderful present for my husband.

  37. I need a new smartphone because my current phone is a super slow Froyo device. The quad core processor on the Note 3 will make running apps a breeze!

    I am sick of the iPhone – ready to to try an Android with a steadier cam.

  48. I would give this to my parents!

  49. My wifes Evo has served her well, but is about as useless as they come now. The inch and a half extra of screen and memory boost would be nice to surprise her with!

  50. i need a new phone because mine has a cracked screen. i like the multi tasking and the larger screen

  51. My poor Blackberry keeps giving me App Error messages so I could definitely use a new phone like this!

  53. It’s on my daughter’s Christmas list. So unless we win it, she won’t be getting it. LOL!

  54. Christine M. says:

  55. This is on my hubby’s wish list

  56. I need one badly for my son! I love that you can open 2 apps at the same time!

  57. Melanie Han says:

    This would literally make me cry if I won this. This is perfect.

  58. In all honest words I dont own a smartphone right now. If I was able to snag this awesome phone I’d make the most out of it, The features I would want to try is the of course the camera and the multi-tasking on this phone. Like you wouldn’t need any laptop or desktop or even tablet. Everything is within the phone, and I think blogging is more convenient now on Galaxy note 3 on its new features.

  68. Lisa Brown says:

  74. My current phone works fine for its talk and text capabilities but I need one with a better camera…i have a busy 9 month old who never sits still so every pic I try to get of her turns out to be a huge blur and I can’t afford a nice new phone or camera so this would be amazing for capturing those special moments !!

  75. Jodie Chadbourn says:

  77. How badly do I need a new phone??? Check out my Twitter feed and see how long I’ve been complaining about my pos BlackBerry Torch! Worst phone ever! Best feature of thr Note? It works! That’s already 100% better than my phone! Good luck me!

Would love to win a new phone,fingers crossed! mine is barely hanging on and its never in the budget for a new one, the sacrifices of being a momma, and I’m not complaining wouldn’t trade a moment of it!

  131. I need a new phone mine just took a bath in a snow pile today :( I love the camera and google play store :)

  132. Tell us is a really good company, a lot of people say it’s over rated but it’s not. They have a good selection of phones and are a competing provider..

  133. I want to win because my phone is at the end of it’s life, and I’ve been coveting a Note3 since it came out!

  134. Arvin Jhann says:

    Thank you so much guys for this wonderful chance to own such a great gadget like Galaxy note 3. This is a wonderful chance to each and everyone of us here. Thank you so much guys for this giveaway. God Bless you guys. God Bless all of us who will join this giveaway. Have a wonderful Christmas and a prosperous New Year. :)

  135. WOW. Thanks my GOD so you heard my Praying.
    Because I am going to win GALAXY NOTE 3 today.
    WOW, WOW, WOW…

  136. Mark Villanueva says:

    I so badly need a new smartphone. The blackberry I have keeps freezing and it drives me nuts. ANd the feature im looking forward to the most is the camera.

  137. Travis Faulkner says:

    Im still rocking an OG Droid that doesnt really do anything anymore! I NEED IT!

  138. My kids would think I’m way cooler with the GALAXY Gear on too! Being able to join the TimePlay fun at Cineplex movies would be an added bonus.
    Winning the Sumsung GALAXY Note 3 would be music to so many ears as I would no longer have to ask random people to borrow their phone. I’ve yet to own my own and I’m a multidisciplinary artist, married, with kids.

    Having two apps open at once on the bigger screen whets my appetite. The S pen for jotting down song lyric inspirations and other creative ideas is very handy. The practicality of penned names and numbers going directly into my contact is a time saver. Faster downloads, smooth browsing and video streaming without buffering is excellent. Here’s to entering the smart phone age in style!

    Oh and being able to join in the TimePlay fun at Cineplex movies would be an added bonus!

  139. Hi, Thanks for the opportunity :)
    Would love to win this as a gift for my daughter so she can be happy and have a non stressful Christmas holiday this year! She has been wishing for this 3gb ram and s pen goodness!

  140. I’ve heard such great things about this phone, I would love one!

  141. Gabriel Chow says:

    I am still using an old school flip phone and it would make my work life so much more productive if I were to have a smartphone – to be able to access my work email, have a GPS on hand when I need to find a client’s place, the list goes on. The feature that most excites me about the Note 3 is “S-Pen” – I love to write out notes instead of typing it into a computer or cellphone, and this feature combines the best of both worlds!

  142. Dayna Wilson says:

    My phone actually doesn’t charge. My husband and I have to swap batteries at the end of the day, and then he charges the dead one up in his phone. It’s awful. I’m excited about the S-pen feature, that is SO cool.

  143. Janrhey Cerrado says:

    I don’t have any phone.
    I’m just dreaming of having a smartphone by watching videos and reading blogs
    I hope it will be given to me :)

  144. I had my phone stolen a month after I bought it, I need a replacement I really need a new one!

  145. I would give this to my husband who has an old blackberry… he would love to watch videos and have a gps app on his phone!

  146. I would love to surprise my wife over the holidays with news that she’s won a new phone to replace her ancient flip-phone (yes, she still has one of those!). Thanks for the chance to win! Love Samsung.

  147. I really need a new phone. My blackberry is becoming too glitchy. I am excited about the large screen and the android operating system.

  148. My step sister really needs a new phone, this would be a great gift with its large screen and android system like her old one!

  149. A.J. Carano says:

    I wouldn’t need a new phone if my current one wasn’t all cracked/scratched up from dropping it on the ground every day….lol

  150. I *really* need to keep up with technology. My current phone -blackberry – is more like a brickberry. Pretty useless nowadays. I would like to at least take pics of my girls that don’t come out all pixelated. :)

  151. I need a new phone because a dog ate my old one. I was walking my new puppy the other night, holding my phone in my right hand. A large dog came running towards us and I didn’t want my little girl to get attacked. I threw the only thing I had at the dog. My phone. It hit him, my protective rubber case flew off the phone and the dog ran away…..with my phone. I took my dog back home, grabbed a flashlight and went back out to look for my phone. I found it about a hundred feet from where it hit the dog. It was actually punctured right through just above the screen and bits and pieces were strewn about the road. I picked it all up, took the battery,sim card and memory out and tossed the rest in the garbage. I just hope I didn’t hurt the other dog.
