A few of my all time Favorite BlackBerry Accessories

BlackBerry Charging Pod

BlackBerry Charging Pod

My top accessory by far, this pod keeps your device charged and at the ready when you need it. I have one on my nightstand so I can use my device as an alarm clock, and one on my desk in my office to keep me charged all day long.

BlackBerry Leather Holsters

BlackBerry Leather Holster

Who says holsters are out? I'm a big fan of having my device ready to roll, but I hate hate hate having to put it in my pocket. When it's not in my hand I have it in one of these holsters so it's never out of reach.

BlackBerry Skin Cases

BlackBerry iSkin Vibe

Sometimes I want to "style up" my device a bit and give it a different look. For that I turn to a sweet skin case. My favorite is the iSkin Vibes case since there are sooooo many colors to pick from. 

Bluetooth Speakerphone

BlackBerry Visor

I'm on the road running errands and such lots of times during the day, but like any BlackBerry addict I can't stay off my device. A sweet Bluetooth car kit like the BlackBerry VM-605 visor mount speakerphone comes in handy and will keep you from getting a ticket on the road. Better safe than sorry!

Extended Battery

BlackBerry Extended Battery

I save the best for last. We all know that most BlackBerry batteries aren't the greatest, so having a little extra juice goes a long way. I love to have one of these bad boys in my device and using the standard battery as a spare. Once you try out an extended battery your life will never be the same!

Accessory Roundup Cyber Tuesday edition - These are a few of my favorite things



Well I just bought a Seidio holster so I guess that's out, but I still have my eye on one of those car mount kits that plugs into the cigarette lighter and has a bendy neck. I think that would look pretty cool and be really handy.

I'm still on the fence about the bluetooth speakerphone thing but that would be worth a shot. And finally I'd pick up one of those charging pods. They sure do look pretty.

This shopping spree would be well used as I'm just in the process of switching out my old BB for the 9800 Torch. Which would need a cover & new tabletop desk charger....

That’s the reason why I would get extended battery for by BBB 9780 always on crackberry forums.
Oh and I would get new pouch and definable one of those excellent iskins they do look very nice on the phones.
And probably at the end I would buy everything what is available form my BB. By the way today was the first day we got snow in London loved the panic... Christmas is coming ^^

You guys really know how to treat your subscribers. as well as your fans. Thank you for helping to fuel my addiction to my blackberry.

Thanks crackberry.

- charging dock so I can be ready as soon as it's fully charged, a leather holster to keep my Bold looking stylish and safe, and maybe a skin for those days when I have limited pocket room and want a slim profile for my phone.

Hook me up CB!

I just purchased a screen cover and a charging dock for my fiance's Blackberry Bold 9650. I purchsed both for mine and love having the dock, charging seems quicker with it than when it's plugged in with the cord, and the screen cover is a must. If I were to buy another accessory, it would be a dash mount for my car (already got bluetooth with the '09 Malibu). Thanks guys, hope you pick me!

Thank you, CB for having so many awesome contests. That being said, I would love to give my Torch some new gear for the holidays! :D

i would have to say if i win i would go for the desktop charger as i have been envious of my wifes since she got hers... pick me crackberry!

Just broke my bluetooth speaker phone (fell out of the car and stepped on it), need a new one for my 45 mintue comute to and from work! Please pick me!!!!

I'd love to do some shopping in the CrackBerry store! Maybe get a Bluetooth headset for my husband and daughter. :-)

I would get the extended life battery for my 9650, a bedstand charging pod, and the Skins! Help me out CB!

Smartphone experts top case and a headset would be my picks.--Thanks Crackberry for the chance to win .

OH SANTA, BE KIND AND TELL CRACKBERRY TO GIVE ME THIS FOR CHRISTMAS! Please. I resently converted my wife and sister-in-law to blackberry addicts. I could buy them some accessories for Christmas. I personally would really like a charging pod.

Yet I can't ever seem to convince myself to get them... Hopefully I win so that I can start on my accessory collection to go with my app+theme ones!

Crackberry is another one of those stores that my girlfriend has to commandeer my wallet before i'm allowed to browse. Some of the others are Bestbuy, Guitar Center, & ...uh, any stripclub south of the river ;-)

Wow, I'd love to win so I could get the Seidio Innocase Surface in blue and the Innocase Holster combo for my Torch. I'd also get a new bluetooth headset. Thank you!!!!

oh let it be me (fingers crossed ) I'd definitely get the bluetooth headset so i can pair it with my ps3 as well ;)

I would buy the pod, a skin, and a battery for myself as an early Christmas present. My family kind of quit Christmas a few years ago, so no presents and no tree :S I'll just be sitting on the couch with my spiffy charged up colorful blackberry this year.

I'd buy myself and my wife some new skins for our nekked Blackberrys. Then I'd want to buy some bluetooth headsets for our safe driving.

For me, it'd be pretty simple:
Bluetooth speakerphone for my wife to stay safe while driving
Charging pod for my bold
And the fun part would be a purple iskin to liven up my bb black pinstripes!!

I've been eyeing those charging pods for a while now. this would get me the pod and my wife a new headset.

I would buy an extended battery, another charging pod for my desk at work and another bluetooth since I accidentally trashed my last one cleaning my car out :/

me heart crackberry! can i haz $100?
i by kevin a present if i win! me also buy dock! and blueteeth headset! om nom nom! and battari!

More free stuff... I certainly wouldn't mind any of those mentioned being a new BB user and all. The better battery would be a good choice though.


I want a holster, protective skin, a new batter cover, Bluetooth stereo headphones, car mount, and an extended battery.


Only $100 I could go nuts in the cb store .lol
I'm in.. I'd love to win its almost christmas and my birthdays coming up to wink wink lol

I been wanting to buy that leather pouch for my 9700 but I can't seem to checkout to ship to Singapore! =(

I was contemplating on using services to ship for me but after some calculation it seems too expensive. darn.

I guess I would buy some extra batteries too...

oh well :(

Need a headset, you know, it's the law here. Plus, the speaker phone only gets so loud, can't hear my wife over my Metallica!

I would love to have one of those leather holster. With my BB safely tucked inside the holster, safe from unintentional key press and battery drain and while conveniently available, leaving my two hands free all the time.

Having the BB in the hand all the time is always a hazard if you know what I mean... ;-)

I would love to get an extended battery - among so many other things - so would love to win this. Thanks for holding contest!

Wow, great timing to win. Just before the Holidays!! Thanks Crackberry You're the bestt!!!!!!!

I would love a new leather sleeve and an extended battery. I'm sure I could find some other goodies too!

i would go for either a skin or bluetooth accessory. Would love to win this with the dock as well. If only there was a UK crackberry.

I've got a family full of blackberry users and a girlfriend who's family is full of blackberry users so winning this would be a great way to get some Christmas presents checked off the list. They all need good cases, my mom wants a car mounting kit, my girlfriend's dad wants a Bluetooth headset, and my girlfriend wants one of those cradle stands for her blackberry curve... and there would be no harm in getting myself an accessory or two. right?

This would be good. I could buy wife something for Christmas.

Kevin, help a guy out whose roots come from Winterpeg.

My Torch is looking a little naked. It needs some friends to hang out with, possibly a nice warm holster and a charging dock to sit in at night.

Please pick me!

A new extended battery, or even a bluetooth headset, would be a great xmas shopping gift.

this would be so awsome if i won 100 bucks from your store pls hook me up GREAT contest CB rocks best bb site ever

I would buy an extra or extended battery for my Torch and a holster. This would be amazing to win! *crosses fingers*

I would get one of the Blackberry visor mount bluetooth thingies - the ear-mounted ones are a bit of a nuisance and being able to stream my tunes to the radio would be stellar! Then I would order one of those charging cradles for my Torch.

since i have the storm, extended battery would def. be the choice i should go with, but i for sure need a new bluetooth headset. hours of bb use and ps3 use has drained my old one to where it stays charged for only 15 min. :( decisions, decisions!

I would probably buy a bluetooth headset. Cant begin to count how many tickets ive gotten from talking and driving :s .... Also a charging dock, I run outof baterry way too often cause I forget to charge overnight.

What a nice PRESENT for Cristmas ! ! !

thank you Crackberry for this Beautifull opportunity ! ! !

:- )))

Three out of 5 are my favorites too. Trouble is, I jsut got a new Style 9670, and my FAVORITE of favorites isn't available yet... a charging pod!

That charging station does look sweet. And a fresh new battery would ensure I make it through the day. So many choices!

I would love to have a few of my favorite things.....even though i think Oprah's favorite things giveaway is a little better

I would get the iSkin Vibes - Blue case for sure! Maybe even one in every color :) I had a black one but I lost it and I LOVED that case its solid and gives great protection... PLUS it will also fit the Bold 9780 when I get that upgrade soon :-) please please please pick me

sweeeett i love crackberry you guys do it all. reviews, news on the latest and greatest RIM products and you guys have all these awesome contests!!

Stuff for my torch... Got the charging pod, a must buy IMHO. Stil need the holster and probably the otterbox or inocase hard case. Thanks for another great opportunity to get free stuff...

Contest Entry:
I would definitely look into the charging pod as well as the leather holster and the extended battery. Hope I win. Thanks for another great giveaway!

I would love some new accessories since i just got a new blackberry would love to get some goodies for it.

i would love to get a Cradle and nice case for it. and maybe a new Bluetooth headset.

Ooo this would be awesome. I just got a 9650 a few weeks ago, this would be great for me since I'm in the market for new accessories!

ohh la la hahahaha another great contest! i'll definitely pick an igrip charging dock, i use the phone's GPS quite often, and it will definitely be very useful to hv my phone on a dock while i drive, and i'll definitely pick a bluetooth as well, i'm just not good at driving, talking and using GPS!!! Pick meeee, for my driving and multitasking safety :D happy holidays crackberry!!!!!

im rockin a bold 9700 with no back door and the battery ghetto rigged with tin foil and tape. its disrespectful to blackberry!! please help! we need a win here crackberry :(

Not sure what I would buy. Could always use more skins and a screen protector. Need a new black belt case. And there is always something new I would like to try.

I would grab:
BlackBerry Music Gateway (the BlueTooth thing)
"Pretty" holster for the wife
Seidio Rugged Case for my 9700 (to swap out the OtterBox once in a while)
BlueTooth Speaker Phone for the car.

If you carried the Jawbone JAMBOX.... I would use this to cover half the cost of that :)

Thanks Crackberry.

This will be so kool to have Jabra Cruiser II Bluetooth Car Kit Speakerphone an the motorola s9 hd headphones that will go sick with my 9700 bold...hope you'll pick me.....yeahhhhhh

How cool am I as I get ready to leave for the day lifting my iSkinned Blackberry up from the Charging Pod and placing it into the Leather Holster. Don't have to about running out of juice or missing any emails because I have the Extended Battery inside! As I get in the car I can drive easy and not take my eyes off the road as I take my calls through the Bluetooth Speakerphone and know that my blackberry will perform all my tasks I need!

That's the way it would be for me if I won!

I never knew about the extended batteries so i would definitely have to grab one of those. also, i recently connected an old bluetooth to my torch and wow, it is a much easier and safer way to talk in the car so i would want a new headset as well

A new battery for my Torch would come in handy, same as a leather pouch would be nice. Good Luck to all!

I like accessories. I would get one of those iSkin or some sort of protective cover for my BB8530. Something not bulky though cos I like how thin my phone is.

I would LOVE to be able to afford a charging pod and an extended battery for my new BlackBerry Storm 2 so I don't have to have it plugged in all the time!!

I would most definitely get me a charging dock it would help out so much! Not to mention the other goodies could come in handy (battery)

You guys are amazing for always having these contests! Id probably get the extended battery, the charging pad , and another micro-usb travel charger for the storm 9530. Good luck peoples!

$100 shopping spree eh?

Stuff for me:
- torch cradle

for my wife:
- 9700 iskin case

if there's money left, then i'd get a torch skin for myself :)

I'm a Curve user on AT&T and can hardly wait till Dec. 23 when my contract is up, so I can become a Bold 9650 user on Verizon and actually get coverage at my house!

My 9650 shopping list is:
- A charging pod for bedside use
- A car charger and blade charger for travelling
- Maybe a skin or two

If I have some money left over, I'll keep it on account and use it to get something cool for my PLAYBOOK in the future!!!

I would get the charging pod, iskins, Bluetooth and extended battery for my Bold 9650 because I love my blackberry so much that it;'s like one of my kids. It has to have everything it need to stay amazing and looking great! I would love to win this package. I definitely need some luck with all the bad I've had =) C'mon Crackberry! Choose me!

And good luck to everyone else =D

i would love to buy one of those charging tablets... i would get a cradle but that would require me to remove my skin everynight!!
