    Have a contest in which the prize is an iPhone. Or another way
    to go is to outsource some cool iPhone apps and have people
    opt-in to get free copies.

    Echoing what most people here are saying it's all about incentives.

    I work with 2 clients who have email list building as a priority and we use different incentives depending on the audience.

    One is music/rock related - we do mp3 giveaways, rock memorabilia giveaways, ticket giveaways, etc. What we do to not only get people on that email list (but keep them on) is publicly 'flaunt' our giveaways and give out codes only available within the email in order to process the giveaway. This gets people in our mailing list and sort of keeps them in if they still want the giveaways. These emails we send out also includes latest stories we've published so it acts as a newsletter and delivers some value there

    Other is a law firm - a little tougher as nobody wants email from a law firm - but here we offer a lot of e-books that random folks can download, and I've also set up a series of automated "welcome to firm" emails that new clients get so we capture their email in order to give them those. They are then also added to our main mailing list.

    Your focus is iPhones - so what kind of incentive you want to offer really depends on how much $ you would consider an email lead worth. If you can send out 1000 emails and make 1000 dollars consider an offer worth at least a dollar.

    Maybe try some of the following:

    -e-books
    -free version of paid app for your email list
    -a custom app just for your email list
    -giveaway's and sweepstakes - apps, iphone covers, accessories, chargers, etc.
    -maybe an "update your iphone" giveaway - elegibile for only people with older iphones that enters them in a drawing for the latest model

    There's a really a ton of them - just spend some time brainstorming so the nice folks here don't have to do your work for you.

    Just remember if you claim to have these giveaways and then don't deliver your going to lose that list fast.

    Try posting your giveaways and sweepstakes to sweepstake sites that you can find. There's a ton and they drive a lot of good traffic and links when you set them up correctly.
