You won both phones. Contact one or both sellers. Tell them you are an idiot and maybe they will take pity and let you out of the contracted buys you made. Why did you bid if you didn't want a phone?
They can give you a cancellation request, or they can file non paying bidder on you which will pretty much end your ebay life.

You just registered yesterday and you have 31 bids on 5 items (all smartphones), 3 of which you have won and already you want to weasel your way out of your obligations. You must pay for the 3 phones you won or face unpaid item disputes.
You bid multiple times on each item so that means you really wanted it. You can't now decide you do not want the items. If you win the other two, those sellers will be expecting to get paid as well as the first three. If you didn't want 5 phones, you should not have bid on 5 phones.

You signed up for your account this afternoon, and within an hour you managed to bid on 2 of the same smartphone. You are currently the high bidder on both, so hopefully you will be outbid on one of them, and if not, they are both from the same seller, so maybe if you tell them you just signed up for e-bay and started placing reckless bids like it was a game, maybe they will take pity on you. If not, you need to pay for both phones.
Now, find many of the help pages on e-bay and read them, then read them again to learn about buying, bidding, etc. The "watch list" is your best friend. Use it often.
Hopefully you learned a lesson from all of this, but probably not.

The only way is to ask the seller if he will cancel the transaction. Some sellers will and some sellers won't. It is up to them. If they do happen to cancel the transaction, they will send a cancel transaction. Agree to it so the seller can get his fees back. It has no effect on you.
Please, be careful what you bid or Buy it Now. It is a binding contract with the seller. If you find items you may want to bid on, put them in your Watch List until you are definitely sure you want to bid on the item.
When you win an item and don't pay, the seller can file an Unpaid Item dispute against you after 4 days. Then you have four days to pay. If you do not pay, you will get a strike against your account. Two strikes make it difficult to buy on ebay because a lot of sellers have their preferences set to reject bids from buyers with two strikes. It takes a year for a strike to go off your account.

When did you bid?
When does each auction end?
When you bid, you agreed to keep your bid on that auction until it ended absent specific extraordinary circumstances (and to pay for it if you won). If you think you have such extraordinary circumstances, you can either describe them to us with specificity (including when you bid, when the auction ends, and why you changed your mind) and we may be able to suggest one or more solutions to your problem. Or you can beg the seller to cancel your bid, but s/he is not required to do so nor to acknowledge your request.
