That’s the message Ben Rudolph on twitter ( @BenThePCGuy ) went with yesterday as he tweeted to Apple and Blackberry customers about their mobile woes. Ben then took it a step further and is offering 25 Windows Phones for the top 25 replies as to why they need a Windows Phone.

Ben will be announcing the winners today so if you are one of the many frustrated iPhone of Blackberry users – you can take a crack at winning a free WIndows Phone.

Here are some of the best replies so far:


  • @BenThePCGuy i want to upgrade to #windowsphone because iOS5 upgrade makes me want to throw my apple products out the window.
  • #windowsphone @benthePcguy Windows phone 7 is the only platform with a distinctive personality
  • Apple has now bricked my iPhone…and the servers are overloaded so I can’t update.  This infatuation with Apple hurts today.  Mucho.
  • @BenThePCGuy spent over 5 hours trying to update iPad and iPhone today .Dreaming the day i have a Windows 8 Tablet and a linked Winmo Phone
