{CLOSED} Nokia Lumia 822 Smart Phone + $100 Verizon Gift Card Giveaway #VZWSS

by Marcy on November 24, 2012 · 194 comments

UPDATE: Winner is #23, Rachel.

I can still remember my very first cell phone when I was officially “on my own” just out of college. It was a silver Nokia phone (from Verizon) and I thought it was sweet! (and it was for the year 2000). My husband had a blue one. ;-) Nokia just launched the brand new Nokia Lumia 822 and 12 years later I have to say that Nokia has done great things with their phones!

The Nokia Lumia is powered by the new Windows Phone OS and has tons of great features including:

  • Kids’ Corner. Grants your little ones access only to the apps, games, videos, and music you choose for them, so you can relax and let them play. They can open Kid’s Corner on their own, but your Start screen, apps, and info are protected by a password you set.
  • Nokia Drive+ – Voice Guided, Turn-by-Turn Navigation.
  • Nokia Maps allows you to see a broad area or pinpoint your location.
  • Nokia City Lens uses augmented reality to show you top sights, with review and directions.

  • Nokia Music gives you access to over millions of tracks with subscription-free streaming.

Plus for a limited time, these EXCLUSIVE Nokia pre-loads are available:

  • ESPN: access live scores, video content, news and ESPN Mobile.
  • Univision app combines their mobile experience into a single hub.
  • The Weather Channel for Windows Phone.

All of this plus Verizon 4G LTE! Check out this video for more info.

WIN IT! I am thrilled that Verizon has given me 1 Nokia Lumia 822 Smart Phone + a $100 Verizon Gift Card (could be used toward your bill or a Lumia accessory) to give to one lucky winner!

What am I giving away?

1 winner will receive a Nokia Lumia 822 Smartphone + a $100 Verizon Gift Card
