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



I would buy a protective screen and a charging dock for my beloved 9700! And maybe a case of some sort too..

I would be getting the extended battery for my torch so that I can use my phone longer for music and media every day :D I love Blackberry for the Media Player and Bluetooth Abilities

I would for sure buy a charging pod for a Torch. Just not yet available at my local Bestbuy. :(

I have been looking for a case for my Bold every since it came out. I would love to buy one from this great selection and I would pick up an extended battery.

With the $100 GC I'd buy the iGrip car cradle and charging dock for my Torch. I've been eyeing them for awhile but money is tight during the holidays.

Who couldn't use a $100 worth of new toys for your favorite toy?

I would get another battery and wall charger for it as well as a new side case. Depending on how much is left, I might pick up a new phone cover case.

CB has the best giveaways for sure! I'd have to buy a charging pod,an extended battery and a skin to cover the scratches from dropping my precious Bold the other day!!

Well, I just spent 60 bucks on accessories, but it's WAYYY too easy to come up with another C-notes worth. Please let my xmas come early, mmkay? :)

Awesome contest.... i guess if this $100 would be for today i can get the BlackBerry VM-605 Bluetooth Premium Visor Handsfree for Bold 9700 i always wanted... and also the BlackBerry Premium Stereo Headset (3.5mm) for Bold 9700!! I'm heavy into music so two of these today would be under the $100 ($79.95+$19.95= $99.90) and still have a dime to spare.. TIP!!! lol. Since the competition end Sunday i would settle for the bluetooth visor for 99.95 and give u guys less tip... 5 cents instead!!! lmfao... Make me Win crackberry and u all win too!! hahahaha

I'de get the doc for my torch, to use it as a clock since it's also my alarm in the morning with that bluetooth or the Plantronics Voyager Pro . sexy

I would have to go with the MOTOROKR T505 so I could listen to ESPN Radio while driving and probably the Blackberry Power Station for the 8330 considering even my extended life battery dies after a day and a half.

There is so much I need accessory wise I can't pick just one would be money well spent for CHRISTMAS !!!!!!

I'm still not 100% on the VM605, either. I use a Blue Ant S4 and am happy (though have to exchange under the 2 year warranty as I killed it with cold).

I love charging cradles, Otterbox Commuter cases with the black skin changed out for a different color, screen protectors, Decal Girl Skins, and an extended battery would make my day!!!

I'd buy charging docks for the house, the car, and maybe the office! All to keep my torch juiced and ready no matter what comes my way!

Wow! I could certainly put that $100 to good use. Problem is there are so many good things in the CrackBerry store, it would be a hard decision.

i would get the charging pod for my 8900... that is priority... another battery and the rest would be anything that I see and would like for my berry >D

I second the charging pod. Awesome accessory. I also have a Phantom Skinz chromatic skin that really styles up my tour without adding any size. I would love to win as well.

This guys are going crazy I loveeee it...One would be the charging pod that's #1 and a bluetooth headphone wich I really need, and those iskin look way sexa I might grab one of those too...

woot $100.00 in accessories! i just bought a torch and need a case car mount and the charging cradle.

i want Seidio Extended Batteryyyyyy pleaseeee... seems like my curve battery start to drop drop and drop... sadly... i need that tough accessories... lucky me... i hope.. :D thanks Crackberry!!!

I would love to win. There are some great accessories that I would love to get for my 9650 and gift to my BB friends. Good luck to all!

I would want to buy the charging pod. Just would make things easier, drop my torch in and pick it right up. I like to have a variety of accessories and that would be a cool one. And I wanna try one of the skin cases, those seem pretty cool.

I must be an optimist because I still enter contests even though I never win. I would love to win this one. I would purchase a Seidio Innocase and holster for my Torch. And then top that off with a Ventev Powercell. Make my hope a reality...pick me!

yo pick me to win so i can buy some more accessories for my blackberry torch...cuz rocks like that

Awesome contest and one that I would LOVE to win!!!

I think I would get the charging dock and maybe the car bluetooth....decisions, decisions!!! :)

I would purchase a new battery for my son's phone (b/c his current one doesn't hold a charge) and I would get a bluetooth speakerphone so I could talk hands free.

thank you in advance.

I need ALL of this... especially considering the stuff I put my blackberry through this weekend.

I would get a charging pod (or two), an Incipio Ultra Lite Feather Case (Black), a leather holster (my refurb didn't come with one), a spare micro USB cable, & Blackberry skin case + screen protectors.

This would be a great bundle for Christmas for sure!

The ultimate warrior dream package!!! I could sooo do with these goodies right now ! Im hoping its gona be my christmas this yearr :)

Oh wow, the charging dock would definitely be so handy.
Personally though, I think an extra battery would be most useful. My 9700 battery gets killed looking for service when I'm in certain areas of my University. An extra battery would mean I don't have to worry!
Please please pick me!

I would buy myself a Blackberry Charging Pod, or a Powermat Charging kit for my new Bold 9780!

*enters self into contest*

We are currently a two BlackBerry household. One of the two will be upgrading to a new 'berry in the very near future, and we will be adding two more right after that! I know they will all need charging docks, car chargers, cases/skins, and I'm sure that we will need to increase our extra battery inventory. $100 would definitely help to get everyone started with the appropriate accessories!

Oh, I'll try my luck. The losing streak should end someday, right?

I'm not 100% sure yet what I would get... I've been eyeing some cases for my 9700 but I have to admit those color skins look great too. Oh well, 100 bucks, maybe both? Or the extended battery? No matter what, money will be well spent :D

This is an awesome contest and I would love to win it. I am in desperate need of some new accessories for my bold but don't have the money to spend on myself for the holidays.

This would be awesome!! I still have a 9530 and was thinking VERY hard about upgrading either to the 9780 or the 9800. I like the 9780, but being a Storm owner I LOVE the big screen and the touch screen. The 9800 looks sweet, but I think the hype was a bit too big for it when it came out.
With one I choose it would be GREAT to have $100 in accessories considering I have to pay the no contract price cause I still have 1 1/2 years left on my 9530 contract.
I would get:
-Charging Pod
-Bluetooth Speakerphone
-Extended life battery
I know $100 wouldn't cover these all, but it would get me the most expensive one, the bluetooth.

Please CrackBerry, hook up a Canadian!!!!!!!

I would buy a leather pocket and a charging pod for my brand new torch! I would also get an extended battery if they made one.

Boy, 100 bucks in accessories! I would get a quality holster or case, pod charger, something with bluetooth and maybe an extra battery.

Love these contests! Be great to win one :)

I just got 2 new phones (one, as an insurance replacement, another from somebody who had to switch carriers) and am looking to outfit them with Smart Skins! This would certainly help get me those!

Thanks Crackberry for the chance, win or not!

Would live to be able to get that bb bluetooth speakerphone! Hope I can win this shopping spree so I can get one! What a great contest. i

When I win, I'm going to buy an Seidio charging dock and a case to go with it! Then I'm going to donate the rest to the starving crackberries fund!

Oh!! Shopping spree for tech gadgets!!!! PICK ME!!!!
(I would like to tender my submission to the contest for your consideration.)


I could always use another charging pod or two, I am still using my leather case from my 9000 (I will always keep my 9000 collectors item!), could use a new leather case for my torch.

This is why I love CB so much, always great contest and great information. Hope I'm one of the lucky winners

hook me up with that giveaway CB----- I just ordered a Overboard case for my 9670, and hopefully that'll be

Crackberry is awesome and has the best contests. I would definitely get a bluetooth headset and an iGrip Universal Fit Cigarette Lighter Mount if I win.

The 2 main accessories that are a must have for me are: OEM RIM Leather Holster and a OEM RIM Car Charger...those are to be available for all my blackberry's.

I just recently purchased my first BlackBerry, the Bold 9780 from T-Mobile and I love it! I would purchase a couple of accessories.

1. The Smartphone Experts Screen Protectors to keep my screen looking clean and scratch free.

2. The OtterBox Commuter Series Case to make sure it doesn't break or show any signs of wear and tear.

3. The Blueant Q2 Smart Bluetooth for when I'm driving back and forth. The cord is nice but it can be a bit messy at times. I need my hands free.

4. BlackBerry Micro-USB Car Charger for my car to keep my phone charged when talking on my bluetooth.

5. BlackBerry Charging Pod to keep in the office of my new job. It just look clean and very professional.

I need another cradle because my daughter took mine. My berry baby needs a safe place to sleep. I also want that horizontal tote in black, so I hang my baby from my wrist. Oh, I need an extended battery so that I can play longer on the OS 6, it a battery drain on my 9700 baby. My berry baby would have a very berry early Christmas! So, pick me and make us happy!

Merry Christmas!!! Thanks Crackberry. Anything from crackberry would be great...probably pick up an extended battery and a holster to start.

I would most probably buy a new case for my device as my otterbox is looking at bit worse for wear.

An extended battery would be good too.

I would probably get new trackball for my curve and pearl since they are shot too.

Fingers crossed.

Would be incredible. Especially since I've been so short on cash and my phone takes a beating :(. I would take advantage of this big time! Pick me please :)

crackberry always has the best giveaways, always worthwhile, thx crackberry...if i could i would snort you

I need a new headset, I would probably get the premium multimedia headset or a stereo bluetooth headset or both, or maybe a case or holster or 2, that extended battery looks pretty tempting as well, see what I mean there are so many cool accessories its hard to decide.

I plan to get charging pods for each of us plus cases. She just lost her curve to technical issues. I am thinking the case will keep it safe. The pods will improve the charging experience. Thanks again! Pick me!

I'm torn between charging pod, silicon case and extra battery, or a blue tooth keyboard... choices, choices...

I would buy a Seidio Innocell OEM Size Extended Battery and two charging pods with my $100. I sure hope I win, it would be a fantastic early Christmas present from CrackBerry.

And then I would kick in the difference for another power supply for one of my new pods.

Just got my girl her first  and would love to be able to get her some kick ass accessories for Christmas. 100 dollars would be a great start.

I would love an extra usb cord and a leather holster. My bluetooth is on its last leg too. Please let me go shopping!

I'd love to get an extended battery, another charging pod, one of the Otterbox cases, and/or a skin. I'd definitely find a way to spend all $100 on accessories. :-)

I would looooooooove to get myself either a bluetooth headset or a Battery/Hardcase/Charging Dock combo for my storm 1!! pleaseee!!!

The iskin cases are great ... cant argue that one.

And the charging dock ... if I had the right device that was compatible ...

I would say the leather holster for my torch, the skin for the wifey's bold 9700 ( can't leave her out or else I will pay) and the charge pod for the Torch as well.

I like buying from easy.....have bought many apps and themes and a torch charging stand.

Keep up the good work.


Crackberry Rules!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
hoping i can win something :D
$100 to spend @ would be amazing!!!
A BlackBerry Skin Cases,BlackBerry Leather Holsters,BlackBerry Charging Pod or combo of 2 things or even 3!!! this is enough to share with my wife so that her 9700 isnt left out :)
my 9700 could use a new holster and my wife the charging dock so that she could use her blackberry as a clock on her nightstand :D


LETS DO THIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm alway shopping on crackberry, I wish I can get this deal. Will help me get some of the new stuff I got my eye on.


Yes. $100 is really awesome if you win. But for me, I never win anything in my life. So, I look for bargain price. Yes, I am Crackberry fun but even with 10% discount Crackberry can't beat other store.. For example, Torch charging station here is $35. At amazone $18. Even though I am a fun of Crackberry I am buying at Amazon store. Maybe I am not a Royal fun of Crackberry.

I find it cute how people are reeally pushing there luck for this thing..sad to see the unhappy faces..including mine. Besides, i already have accessories, just not the iSkin which isnt compatible with 9560. cheeerrriiooo!

Well I'd buy a spare battery. A charging dock, a spare USB and maybe a skin??

What would you buy?


OOooooOoooooOooooh I'm excited!!!

9700 baby!! Os6 baby!! No bugs baby (well not many)!!

The damage I could do with this coupon!!!First would be an extended battey, then a nice case or pouch, a charging cradle, and lastly a car charger!! Thanks Crackberry for a chance to win this!!!

Maybe a new headset or, more likely, a car kit. I also would love an external battery charger to keep my spares charged

I need a new extended battery soooooooo bad. Hmmm, this would afford me two. My weak battery problem could be solved......if only.....I were to have a Crackberry Christmas!

Yep, on my work a lot of people have chargins pods, thats pods are awesome, But better are the iSkins for Blackberry!

First i would buy a extend battery for my Torch, you know that torch don't have to much battery liek Bold 9700.
Second a charging pod, i don't want that my torch die without battery LOL.
Third a iSkin, because i always want that my blackberry be protected! No fails no anything! iSkins are the best skins for blackberry 100% protected
and four a Leather Holsters people say they are bored nobody like it, its annoying but i don't think so, i like them to much to use it with my blackberry, with it i feel more protected!
But the best to buy here, is that all works, no crashed, no battery fail , NO NOTHING! ALL WORKS PERFECT!

Thats are my favorites ones, what all of you guys would like to have?

Thanks yous crackberry!
Best regards,


$100 in Crackberry merchandise! I would love this. An extended battery, a new case or 3 and handsfree set for my car. That would be so amazing!

Thanks for this contest!!! I would love, love, love to win this one. The items I'm targeting are the extended battery, holster and charging pod. I just got my new style and there are plenty of things to get. =)

I would get a battery for my self, I'm always on the raod and one battery isn't always enuff for a day on the 9700, a charging pod for my brother, and a case for my gf.

I would buy a charging pod (well, two of them!), a skin, and a extended battery... Ohh.. or one of those charging mats!

I'm saving up for a charging pod or a bluetooth spreaker phone for the car. If I win, it would be my Christmas present to myself.

Thank you.

I would get a pretty iSkins case. I love these contests. Just the hope of maybe winning is kind of a gift. Because hope always feels good.

Oh! I would love to spend $100 in the Crackberry store! I would get an extended battery so I can surf more during the day... I'd get a couple of cases so I could easily tell my phone from my wife's phone... I get a couple charge pods, too!

Would have to say...iSkins. After my CrackBerry Idol "filming" experience, I would say iSkin would be the priority;)

I'd love to win this contest then I'd be able to buy these things to go with my Bold 9700

Seidio Innocell 1750mAh OEM Size Extended Battery for BlackBerry Bold 9700 $49.95
BlackBerry Charging Pod for Bold 9700 $24.95
Motorola Micro-USB High Performance Car Charger for BlackBerry Bold 9700 $14.95

And I'd have some left over to get one or two apps or themes as well.
