What's the best cure for CrackBerry Contest hangover? MORE CONTESTS!!! Bellshare, the makers of Instango, just released BerryBuzz this week and they're hooking up CrackBerry Nation with both a contest and a coupon. Sweet! But first to learn about the prize at hand...

About BerryBuzz: BerryBuzz extends your default Blackberry alert system by allowing you to customize the LED color for many alert types and keeps the LED flashing for longer than the default 15 minutes your BlackBerry does. It will repeat alerts until acknowledged so you will never miss an alert again. Plus it adds a customizable vibrate for incoming calls. You can have your BlackBerry vibrate while it is ringing.

BerryBuzz Features:

  • Customize the LED color and set an individual repeating alert for
  • E-Mails (individual for each account or one for all)
  • PIN Messages
  • SMS (may not work with every carrier)
  • Calendar Events
  • Missed phone calls
  • When multiple alerts are active at the same time, every color will flash in a repeating pattern.
  • Customizable rapid flashing LED for incoming phone calls
  • Customizable vibrate for incoming calls. Vibrates while ringing.
  • LED will keep flashing until acknowledged (BlackBerry defaults to flash only for 15 min).
  • Optional slow down of LED flashing after specified time to save battery life
  • Optimized for minimum battery and memory usage
  • Support for instango custom colored LED (instango 2.2.83 or higher)

BerryBuzz for BlackBerry - 100 Free Copies to be Won!



Just got my Bold...slowly becoming addicted to the crack...

So here's the next step in my swirling-down-the-drain... I'm posting! Pick me! This ap sounds great.

I would really love this for my first BB (the Storm!)
I really do need the buzz and ring app and I'd love to make as much use of the LED light (which I love!) because it's so useful!

I think this application would be great to use to be able to tell the difference between personal and business emails. Cant wait to win lol

I have made repeated posts complaining that there was no Storm compatible program of this type. I am an emergency worker that is hearing impaired. I find myself in noisy and confusing situations and it is easy for me to miss important calls and messages. I rely very much on vibration and repeating bursts to get my attention. I am currently using a third party program that is not "compatible" with my storm. It works but has some issues. So far I have been able to respond promptly to emergencies but I am afraid that at some point I will miss a call. People depend on me. Why BlackBerries don't have these features is beyond me. All the cheap phones I've had in the past have a reminder feature. Thanks for writing this program.

this app is exactly what ive been looking for! thank god they finally came out with something to let you change the LED color for every message type. And you can make it vibrate while ringing too?? perfect! i need this!!

I didn't even know that was possible!!!
Just got my Storm this weekend and can't seem to get off this site. Awesome little feature.
I'm turning into such a CrackBerryHead.

Sweet! Good to see some more competition in this area! I like the customizable vibrate/ring function!

Wow! This is going to be a great App!! I don't think RIM can do this all in one app. Hats off to you, Instango, for creating an app, we all desperately need! You guys should work for RIM!

Thank You!!

This would be an awesome birthday gift for me! This looks like an awesome app to customize the Berry even more...

would love to win berrybuzz...pick me! Crackberry, keep it coming with these great contests..maybe, just maybe, one day i'll win! :)

I just got my berry and I would looovvveeee this app :-)
the red and green gets boring so...pick me pick me <3

Dear crackberry,
I am becoming disenfranchised by these awesome contests that I always enter but never win. Come on guys, you would so make my day!

As a BB newbie I'm just starting to look into all the apps that are out there. BerryBuzz looks like it would be very useful!

Seems like a very useful app if your driving and you receive a message so you know what kind of message you have.

I would love to have a copy of this - it would be sweeeet !!! Can't wait for the 10 PM BB update. Go Crackberry Nation

I did the trial of this program and loved it! Would love a free copy guys. I read you guys every single day and what you've brought to the blackberry realm is great.

I think is a great idea to have this software installed in your BlackBerry. definitely the best 1 cause you don't need to pull your Blackberry in and out from the holster to waste battery power. The LED is the best indicator ever design but berrybuzz put it into good use.

This is the official statement confirming that ferrarixp has entered the CrackBerry BerryBuzz giveaway contest.

Good luck to all!

Cool..this is the application I've been waiting around.
This should be preloaded with Blackberry OS.
I don't know why RIM put LED flashing alert only for 15 mins. I wont miss the messages with this awesome BerryBuzz.
* I hope I can win a free copy of BerryBuzz =)*

This application I would love to win. The app would help me out so much. I hate to carry my phone all the time thinking i will break it. I work in construction. Love the reminder settings plus the ring/vibrate.

Wow! Thank you so much for the opportunity to win a copy of this software. I have been looking and trying different programs like this and would love to be lucky enough to be a recipient.

Thanks so much for the generous giveaway!


From the description, this appears to be exactly what I was looking for. I was really wanting to be able to set different led colors for different alerts. Downloaded the free trial. Can't wait to see how it works.

first comment on the site, hopefully more to come of it. love my blackberry and crackberry just makes it all the more better! this app looks very useful, so goodluck to all!!

Awesome I would love to have my Blackberry Ring and Vibrate at the same time! and have some cool LED lights... I hope I win a free copy.

i think i deserve to win this cuz i don have a credit card yet :( n its hard to find a job these days so that i can open one up :( :(
n plus i think this app is a must have WITHOUT A 3rd party app!!!!!! just like vibe n ring!!!!!!IMO anyway.....
this is why i believe i deserve this app :D
just in case i don wanna be missing something soooooo.... my email is

This is the first post I'm writing to win something free on the crackberry website. I would use this app on my Verizon Blackberry Storm. This would be awesome if I wom the app.

The Berry Buzz seems a lot better then the ever so few programs that are out there. I would love for a chance to win this program.
