Are you in Oman? Win a brand new iPhone this National Day

Muscat: Although the new iPhone 8 has now hit shelves in Oman, if you're currently residing in or visiting the Sultanate, you could walk away with an absolutely free iPhone.
There's just one thing you have to do: Times of Oman are hosting a video competition on the occasion of the 47th National Day of Oman, and all residents and tourists in Oman need to do is send their favourite videos of the celebration currently erupting across the Sultanate to [email protected]
One lucky winner will be announced at the end of the competition, and will be presented with an iPhone, absolutely free.
But this is not the only competition Times of Oman are hosting, with the promise of free iPhones: for the rest of the year, residents who download and use our Bayie.com mobile app to buy and sell items will also receive a free iPhone 8.
Long-time resident Raja Srinivasan was named the first ever winner of the competition, and if you live in the Sultanate, you now have not one, but two opportunities to now get your hands on a brand new iPhone, this National Day.
If you are looking to buy the phone, though, please feel free to visit the Mi Store. The official distributors of the iPhone in Oman are having to deal with double the volume of sales they’d initially forecast, after the phone was released in the Sultanate on October 19.
"This year, it is better-than-expected, because we didn't think it would do so well, especially with the announcement of the iPhone 10 by Apple," said a spokesperson for the store. "We also held promotional events and a schedule leading up to the launch, in City Centre Muscat, and it was a very good launch for us.
"We also had a pre-booking operation at MI Store, and the response was much better than we expected," he added. "Compared with last year, we've also got immense stock supplies, and compared with last year, we've got a much improved stock, so we are fortunately able to cater to the demand of all of our customers. We've sold double the numbers we expected."
We did good business on Friday and Saturday, and we expect that this month, business with the iPhone will be booming."
Enquiries about the iPhone began to come in a few days before the official launch.
"We have been getting at least 10 inquiries a day on our website, and more than 20 inquiries a day through Facebook, during the last week," revealed the spokesman. "The purpose of the entire Apple brand is to provide a very good experience, and you cannot imagine, but see that experience on the customer's face."
"Their delight is very easy to see," he added. "They are very excited when they get the iPhone."
In addition, both Omantel and Ooredoo, the country's largest mobile network operators, have bundle offers for the new iPhone 8.
