The name that Samsung Galaxy S3 phone competition - trefor.net

The name that Samsung Galaxy S3 phone competition

Samsung Galaxy S3 seen next to a Samsung Galaxy S2The guess the name of the Samsung Galaxy S3 phone competition from Monday was somewhat buried in the review. It is one of the least entered megaprize competitions I’ve run. This is possibly because it was buried in a long review of the Galaxy S3 or maybe the chances of winning were slim becasue there are lots and lots of names it could have been.

I’m going to assume both so this is a short post just to highlight the competition. Then I’m going to narrow down the possibilities as to what the name might be by telling you that it has biblical associations.

I’m not going to limit the number of prizes here. The competition is going to run all day and anyone who gets the name right gets a prize. There is also going to be a further prize for anyone who comes up with the most unusual biblical name (I’m the judge and my decision is final1).

This competition is also open to Timico staff. If they turn their noses at the mug then I’ll think of a different internal prize but it’s a mug for everyone else. Btw the one answer I did get on the previous post was “Tref’s phone”. Although it is the name displayed on the locked screen I am after the bluetooth name which is different.

Get guessing.

PS if you have already won a mug in a previous competition I can find a different prize for you.

1Β though it isn’t beyond the realms of possibility that I can be bribed on this one but the bribe is almost certainly going to have to be for a lot more than the prize is worth.

    ps – I’ve already got a Timico mug, but my Dad’s not got one πŸ™‚

  3. Fwiw did you know that I come from a long line of Baptist ministers. One of my cousins, William Davies, was the first Welsh Baptist missionary to die in Africa – Grahamstown.

    I plan to write it up before I leave this planet for other destinations.

    Keep the suggestions coming.

  4. Just scanning through this lot again btw and we do indeed have a right answer in amongst the dross:) There is still a chance for others to get it right and indeed to claim the tref’s pick for the most unusual though Rob’s scatter gun effort has probable covered a fair proportion of the available candidates.

    Note I don’t know that last point for sure as it is some time since I read the book.

  5. Oooh Kirst. I’m going to break ranks on this one and tell you that God is definitely not the answer. Mind you would have allowed me to say “I had God on the phone” which might have been amusing.

  6. My bid is for Onesimus…because he has become useful to you and to me( Philemon 1 v 11) and maybe Mephibosheth for most unusual…

  7. Elijah
    Obadiah
    Josiah
    Levi

    Unusual:

    Chenaniah
    Yedidiah
    Uzziel
    Uzziah
    Enoch
    Silvanus
    Zadok
    Habakkuk

    Never won a mug, but I came close πŸ˜€

  8. Ok guys good competition. The phone’s name is John so Cyberdoyle wins the mug. Well done. I think she was the only one to get it but will check again.

    I’m also going to award the unusual name prize but that will have to wait until tomorrow as I’m currently watching the footy.

    Ciao.
