In a very strange move Saudi Telecom Company (STC) has deleted the iPhone 4 ad contest announcement from their Facebook page. This is not the first time STC backs out of something as they removed their iPhone app after less than one day.
Here is the original message posted on STC’s facebook page: “What could you do, if we told you that STC is going to offer iPhone 4 very soon, and that we are going to give away 1 iPhone 4 for the best ad design and offer that comes along?
You are the planner, come up with the best plan for the iPhone, free minutes, free SMSs, free browsing, or anything else that you see will suit peoples’ needs, of course it has to be logical 😉
We are going to wait your designs and offers, and there is a huge chance that the winner design could be used as the official STC ad for the iPhone 4 when it hits the market.
The competition will last until Wednesday the 6th of October 3:00 PM, and the winner will be announced on Saturday the 9th of October noon time. 🙂
There is no problem whatsoever if you decided to enter the competition with more than one design.
All designs should be uploaded to the page’s wall.

Quick tip: don’t forget to tag your friends to the photo once you upload it, this might increase the chance of your design winning you an iPhone 4 😉
Good luck 😉“.
So I guess the contest is over unless STC had an issue with out to accept submissions for the contest so they decided to delay/cancel it.
STC could also posted this on their page: “http://facebook.com/STCadmin
We are facing some technical problems on our page, we will solve them and get back to you very soon. In case you have any question or a request, please contact us through the above-mentioned URL. 🙂“. Lots of smilies …
