Ruling on Contests Via Mobile Phones

I own a housing corporation and I want to advertise apartments for sale by conducting a mobile phone contest in collaboration with a telecommunications company. Participants are required to send messages that cost more than usual. One prize is a car, but the grand prize is an apartment. Is this permissible?

Taking Part in a Competition Depends on how it is Run

I have participated in a national competition by buying a copy of the questions against quarter a JD, which goes for supporting and rehabilitating the disabled persons. Having answered the questions correctly, my name was included in the prize drawing coupons. Fortunately, I was amongst the winners. Is it permissible that I take that prize, knowing that it is a donation made by sponsors and not from the price of the questions` copies?
