Apparently it only costs a few bucks to change your name in Ukraine.
You might think you’re the ultimate iPhone superfan, but you’ve got nothing on this group of iPhone 7 diehards from Ukraine. Each and every one of these five interesting folks legally changed their name to “iPhone 7.”
As you might guess, these fine Ukrainians didn’t change their names just for fun; Allo, a wireless service provider in Ukraine, offered a free iPhone 7 to each of the first five people who changed their name to “iPhone 7.”
In Ukraine, a legal name change only costs a few bucks, so once the company announced the terms of the giveaway, the race was on. The iPhone 7’s lofty price in the country, which converts to approximately $850 USD, was enough to coax these five to tweak their names.
To be declared a winner, each individual had to confirm their new legal name via their new passport with an Allo representative verifying its authenticity. It’s unclear how many of the winners planned to simply immediately change their name back once they received their winnings, as the terms of the contest don’t mention that whatsoever. In fact, at least one participant in the contest claimed he had no interest in using the phone at all, so perhaps you’re a bigger iPhone fan after all.
