Giveaway: Two T-Mobile Smartphones, Yes! (Value $249 each)

This Giveaway is closed. Katie ad Terra won the myTouchQ and the myTouch. Thank you.
You know I fell hard for my Smartphone.  My life demanded it and I devour / live by it - daily.  I was an early advocate of the Smartphone.  Okay, I'll admit it, I was Smart about it! : ) 

                                                   
I never rode about town with one of those GPS boxes on my dash because I went straight for my Smartphone. I went for:  Sleek, fashionable if you understand.  No box on my dash. :) 
With the Smartphone, I love the simple and elegant size and yet the power pack.  My Smartphone jumps at my command.   Some days, I daydream about the Tigers first eight years would have been like had I had my Smartphone at my command.  I am sure I would have found a Diaper App. :)   

Seriously, as a Mom of Twins, I quickly learned to be more and more efficient with my family, business and life in general.  My Smartphone has made that actually fun.  

I love that all in one day I can be on a conference call, answering an email (sometimes it is necessary :) and snapping a picture of my children in the midst of an art project using my Smartphone.  And I share how I love to stay powered up with my Smartphone.  

And now, you can, too!  T-Mobile is partnering with me to GIVEAWAY: (2) Smartphones.

i wonder if they can exchange it or get a refund, even if the box is opened. sometimes you need to get the feel of a device before you know if you like it. i can play with the display when i buy it but they cant necessarily if they receive it.

The biggest question is if the person I get it for will like it enough, and if they will know how to use it or not..
