MN and EE are delighted to be able to give one clue-hunting'n'solving MNer the chance to win an HTC One Mini - read on for more info...

EE have launched their Shared 4GEE Plans which allows users to share their data allowance across multiple devices (phones, laptops, tablets), all on just one contract. To celebrate, we've created the virtual Mumsnet Shared 4GEE plan and we'd like to add 5 phones to the plan.

Unfortunately we've lost our phones (doh) and now need your help to find the HTC devices that are hidden around various talk boards on MN. Each day this week (16th-20th Dec) a new phone will join the sharing plan by appearing on a different Talk board and we'll post a new clue every morning to help you find them.

Here's how it works
Each HTC phone is hidden on a specific (and different) MN Talk board (you can find a list of all the different Talk boards here (there's quite a few!)). Once you've figured out the clue, head over to the Talk board where you should find an HTC phone. Once you've found the phone, make a note of the first letter of the Talk topic. For example, if the topic is Telly Addicts, then the letter you're after is 'T'

Once you have all five letters you need to solve the anagram by unscrambling the letters to make a word. Then just submit the word on the competition page here and you'll be entered into a prize draw where one lucky MNer will win an HTC One Mini worth £365.

Competition closes 31 December

As ever, you're more than welcome to help each other out, however, please don't post the answer on this thread - we're all about sharing, but lets not spoil the fun wink

Here are the clues:

Day 1 Have you read a good book recently that you just have to share with other MNers?

Day 2 DCs keeping you up all night? Find advice here so you can get some shut eye.

Day 3 Where to go to share your thoughts about last week's The Archers.

Day 4 The 30 day Shred, C25K or 6 week 6 pack? There's only one place to share tips and advise to get you through.

Day 5 Reckon you could share your home with a stranger? when you're not even there?

Here's the link to the competition form: here

Thanks and good luck!

That's only one clue, are there other clues? I have very little to do today apart from waiting in for a delivery so this could amuse me.

GodRestTEEMerryGenTEEmen Mon 16-Dec-13 13:03:49

There will be a clue a day, LostInWales.

And I might, delicately, suggest HQ proofread that post again. Before the pedants do...

GodRestTEEMerryGenTEEmen Mon 16-Dec-13 13:04:09

Oh I forgot to ask, if you win, do you have to use EE with the phone?

AnnMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 16-Dec-13 13:14:51

GodRestTEEMerryGenTEEmen - how's it looking now?!

GodRestTEEMerryGenTEEmen Mon 16-Dec-13 13:17:58

Looks like you found all the ones I did, Ann. fgrin

LostInWales Mon 16-Dec-13 14:53:12

Yes, every day, ignore me! Thanks Tee.

LEMoncehadacatcalledSANTA Mon 16-Dec-13 15:28:17

oooh - iim liking this smile So if its in AIBU for instance, you'd write down the letter "A"?

LEMoncehadacatcalledSANTA Mon 16-Dec-13 15:29:40

<thick emoticon> so are the clues printed here on on the first thread etc?

SaltySeaBird Mon 16-Dec-13 15:33:34

I wasted far too much time on the Cadburys Pebble comp and couldn't make a word at the end! I did ask on the thread at the end of the comp and on the competition board what the word was but nobody replied! I know it was an age ago but put me out my misery! It really bugged me at the time smile

KatieBMumsnet (MNHQ) Mon 16-Dec-13 15:34:16

LEMoncehadacatcalledSANTA - that's correct, the letter you need would be 'A'.

We'll add the clues into the OP everyday and also post on the thread to let you know they've been added.

GodRestTEEMerryGenTEEmen Mon 16-Dec-13 15:48:34

I don't remember for sure Salty but I think the word was Cadbury.

SaltySeaBird Mon 16-Dec-13 17:25:02

Thanks TEE, I was nowhere close to finding a word and I'm not really sure how I went so wrong as I'm sure I saw the pebbles!

addictedtosugar Mon 16-Dec-13 20:17:51

Or was it pebbles?
Something like that - you knew when you got it right!

MrsClauswearsspanx Mon 16-Dec-13 21:56:05

Do the phones only show up on the desktop site?

heartichoke Tue 17-Dec-13 09:40:53

Has today's clue been posted somewhere else - or am I missing something?

MichelleMumsnet (MNHQ) Tue 17-Dec-13 10:11:36

MrsClauswearsspanx, yes, they're only visible on desktop hmm

MrsClauswearsspanx Tue 17-Dec-13 11:42:22

Ok thanks, that was probably a daft question I know!

MichelleMumsnet (MNHQ) Wed 18-Dec-13 10:49:19

Whoops sorry, just looked at my post and the emoticon looks a bit odd and not how I intended blush. I meant sad

mjmooseface Fri 20-Dec-13 11:38:03

I haven't the foggiest!!!I just don't know how to navigate around all of the talk boards! fblush

Babycarmen Sun 22-Dec-13 16:37:07

GodRestTEEMerryGenTEEmen Mon 23-Dec-13 10:42:18

I'm pretty sure I've got all the letters.

But can't seem to make a word...

GodRestTEEMerryGenTEEmen Mon 23-Dec-13 10:43:28

Never mind, I think I got it.
