I switched from BlackBerry 10 to BlackBerry 7 and survived!


The BlackBerry Bold 9900 makes a return to ShopBlackBerry in North America


I hope the BlackBerry Classic's trackpad lights up and powers down like it does on the Bold 9900


The real reason My Cousin Vinny downgraded from the BlackBerry Z10 to a Bold 9900 and is waiting on the Classic...

OK @crackberrykevin twitter followers.... the moment you've been waiting for is here. And the WINNER of a new BlackBerry 7 Smartphone of their choosing is......

Spencer Levine @sml20exel

CONGRATS Spencer! And big thanks to everybody who's followed and retweeted. I use a paid service to track the contest and pick the random winner. We had awesome up take on this one, so keep on following @crackberrykevin and @crackberry for more chances to win stuff.

And don't forget, you still have until the end of this month to leave a comment on our BlackBerry 7 Smartphone Contest. Go to that post now! Thanks again for participating in this one, and good luck!



let me be the first to say....damn you spencer levine.....that was my phone!



HOLD THE PHONE! LITERALLY! In my hand, I have a filthy magazine containing Spencer Levine posing nude and as such should be disqualified! How I acquired this dirty magazine is neither here nor there. Time for a re-draw!
[edit:] I am not saying that *I* should be the one disqualified for possessing the dirty magazine, but that Spencer Levine should be disqualified for posing nude.


Congrats and damn my gf is pissed off.... she wants a new OS7 phone and neither her or I won :(


haiz T.T why cant i be any more luckier


Craaaaappp :( ok... congrats! damn it, now I'm sad :(


That account doesn't even exist...


Congrats to the winner. That's all I'm saying.

I didn't know you and Spencer were even "dating". Cograts, Spence.


I was really hoping that paid service would of randomly picked me!

Congrats to Spencer.


OK guys, Let me just say that I am SO sorry and that I've been here for three years and have never won ANYTHING. I'm sure there were 4000 people more deserving,

Now that that's out of the way... OMG THANKYOU THANKYOU THANKYOU THANKYOU SO MUCH KEVIN AND ALL OF CRACKBERRY! This is the best birthday present EVER!!!

PS Wow... Everyone knows my name now. This is quite daft.


So...um...what phone did you choose?


9850!!! Kevin's probably so pissed. Don't get me wrong, the Bold keyboard is G-DLY. I just love that big screen though.
Thanks again for the congrats guys!


remember to give us your review of the 9850 later on.


I kinda hate you right now! ;-) Congrats!


Congrats on your win and Happy Birthday (I know its gonna be a great one for sure)... I hope u enjoy your new 9850! U are so lucky... Now that you have won your phone please pass on the good luck to me! My turn to win my 9900 on the Crackberry Blackberry 7 Giveaway! It would be a great Bday gift for me as well (i'm mid september)! Give me at least 90% of the luck remaining so i can be as happy as you when the other contest is said and done! lol


Hi @Daidumbace,

Alex from RIM here. Congrats on the win! To echo @pmccartneym – do you know which new smartphone you’re going with? I personally use the Bold 9900 because I love the touch screen and larger keyboard, but some people really like the slide-out keyboard and larger screen of the Torch 9810 or the all-touch display of the Torch 9850/9860.

They’ve all got their advantages, and you can read some early reviews on all of the new BlackBerry 7 smartphones on our Inside BlackBerry Blog: Bold (http://bbry.lv/ooTnsv), Torch 9810 (http://bbry.lv/rmB9OP), Torch 9850/9860 (http://bbry.lv/qINY3c), and Curve (http://bbry.lv/qwtcUM).

Alex, RIM Social Media Team
