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 Case Mate Barely There case for my BB friend. I have one for my Bold and it's sleek yet still shows off the nice lines of the BB. I've put the case to the test (dropped my device on kitchen tile) and not a scratch.

I'll take 100 buck worth of themes!!! THAT'S a contest!!! NOT sure WHAT I get for my 8530. Got a case. Maybe a few different colored OtterBox's??????

Thanks for the opportunity! I am VERY pleased with some of the work on themes people are posting, and their efforts to help me. Now, the gift of the shopping spree; will be a nice thing during a very difficult month. Good luck to all! Mike

My battery dies on me when I'm bbming/txting in class all day! I would use this to buy myself a battery!

Yes I would actually use this to buy a Charging pod and buy an ottterbox for my torch plenty of accessories! I wanna win :)

I'd have to split it between the boss' BB and my own, but batteries and bluetooth would be very likely if I were to win.

if i had a $100 to shop at the crackberry store
i would get

of course the charging pod!!! and an iskin vibes case for my blackberry 9700 !
and last but not least, i'd get a replacement battery as mine is already dying : (

would be cool to win! thanks CB

Please pick me!!!
I would choose the charging pod, a skin case, and probably some head phones. Once AT&T gets the Bold 9780, my life will be complete!

if i was to win a charging pod for my 9800 torch and iskin purple for my wife's 9700. last thing freedom walk and talk backup batteries.

Oh Gees!! It would be so very awesome to win. I can fill at least fill one item off my girlfriend list. I would love to win this. Awesome. Thanks CrackBerry.

Omg ok where do I start? With $100 I would definitely buy the Bold 9700 charging pod, a blue and purple iSkin and 3 extended batteries. One for myself, another for my husband and the last for my sister. Were all heavy blackberry users and it would awesome to not worry about your phone dying.

I'd also get the USB Power Plug w/ Micro USB Cable. I love the design! and its very convenient.
I also really like the leather pocket pouch. It gives a sleek, classy look to your blackberry when its not wearing the iSkin.

I have two leather case and bluetooth two bluetooth speaker , for me a charger pod is misssing to complete my equipment

That bluetooth visor-mounted speakerfone is on the top of my phone accessories list (all the cities in my area passed bans on driving while using a cell, so it's a must), along with a waterproof case.

For me having the leather holster makes the blackberry experience complete. The built in phone settings, the style, the convenience,. It's really made for each other - I wouldn't sport my blackberry with anything else.

Would love the extended battery and Bluetooth Speakerphone. I currently only have the docking station and I LOVE IT! but on a serious note, the speakerphone would benefit me so well in the car because its always such a struggle to get my bluetooth working and probably cause more of a risk trying to get it to work rather than if i were to just talk on the phone regularly. Of course the extended battery because well.. My battery runs out pretty fast from being an avid blackberry user :P good luck everyone but I would LOVEEEEEE to win :D

i would buy a bluetooth speaker as well as a skin for my blackberry curve. a new battery would be nice as well with the desktop charger :]

I don't have any accessories, so they're all tempting. I think I'd go for the extended battery first, or maybe the charging pod. It's so hard to choose!

Seriously, with $100.00 gift certificate... I could go hog wild! I start with a charging dock, a new bluetooth headset, a leather slide in case and if there's anything left over I'd start looking at bluetooth stereo headphones.

100 bucks in the CB store would be the best Christmas gift to myself ever! well...I guess I might let my wife pick something out too. :P

I would be all about having a new bluetooth and an extended life battery. I can't stay off my blackberry and having these tools would make christmas extra sweet!

I'd have to go with the Motorola Oasis Bluetooth Headset. I just bought my first Blackberry. The Curve 3G on AT&T and I'd love to deck it out with a crackberry shopping spree. The absolute first thing I'd need though is not to get a ticket for driving while not being hands free. As I anticipate never being able to let my crackberry go... ;)

Hi, Thanks for posting a competition for everyone,
I have a holster but it's really hard to get the phone out of every time you want to answer a call/ check a message. So i would probably buy a skin and a holster, plus an extended battery because i do like using my blackberry as an alarm and i am always forgetting to charge my phone.

Wow would love to break the loosing streak with this prize. Thanks CB. Goodluck to all. BTW, whatever happened to the ColorWare Torch?

I would buy another Charging POD for myself and one for the wife. That Bluetooth visor clip looks interesting as well. Getting tired of my headset. Crackberry ROCKS!!

If I could, I would take one of everything. I just got a storm 2 as a warrenty replacement from my storm one so this would be handy. I would go with the extended battery and a charging pod or a body glove!

I would buy a new charging pod, extended battery, and a new color skin for my blackberry if i win!

Pick Me. I wanna win this one. Thanks Crackberry for another great contest. I would love to use this to get my self a charging pod and a case for my torch (Damn that thing is delicate). Would love to win. Thanks again.

if I won I'll get myself (and my blackberry of course) the BT Headset that I always wanted to go for my BB since somehow mines are stuck with my droid only -- can't use it on BB somehow.

Well this year my wife and I have boycotted christmas due to my dealership shutting down, just starting a new job in security, and this past weekend me breaking my thumb. I have a bold and she has the torch. All she has been asking for is an otterbox for her torch and a keyboard to learn to play piano. I know we agreed not to get eachother anything cause we just can't afford to this year...but she means the world to me and deserves the things in life that she wants. If I could win it would make her Christmas to at least get one item she wanted, and would make mine to feel like I could help get her the the things she wants.

I'd really love a holster, a charging pod or an iskin vibe for my best business mate, my beloved 9700! Thanks for this opportunity, guys.

I just dropped my 9700 for the first time (minus the time my cat knocked it off my bed) on my way out to the car after class, and I think my white bold would benefit from a case seeing as the bottom is scuffed. I would definitely get an iskin vibe, either pink or blue, and I think everyone could benefit from a charging dock.

im always dropping my phone, so id have to go with an otterbox...the heavy duty one as a little extra bulk on a 9650 would still leave it smaller than a lot of phones out there...and i really REALLY need a good blue tooth as its illegal to use a phone without hands-free device while driving so many places now

With $100 I can afford 21 screen protectors for my Storm2! Come on, try to scratch my TankBerry. I dare you.

I would love to have a Seidio Extended Battery, I'm always using my 8530 so I need a battery that would be more user friendly.

For me, I would get a bluetooth headset and a cradle. And if there's some left over I'll spoil myself with the extra battery. I'm in total agreement with Kevin on that one!

Definitely a BlueTooth car kit, and a charging cradle. Extended battery would be great too, since my battery tends to run out at the most inconvenient times.

Well, if I were to win, I would buy an extended battery because the battery in my Torch doesn't last that long (since I'm a heavy user). I would also buy a charging pod because they look so cool and stylish. The last thing I would buy would be a iSkin Vibe because my Otterbox isn't holding up very well. Please pick me to win this contest.

Wow, This would totally make my holidays. Thanks for the opportunity to win. Crackberry Rocks!

I recently got a new red Torch. I still need a pouch, maybe a clip style holster, charging dock...maybe even a charging dock for my wifes 8900. It is the season of giving afterall. :)

I am so new to the crackberry world. I am still a seed. *L* this site roxs.
And am learning tons of tricks and tips..
merry xmess.. :)

I could use some accessories for my new phone. Plus, this could make up for the contest I had "won" and did not get to collect.

Count me in. 'Tis the season to be giving. My girlfriend is rockin' a 9650, so she could go for a new iSkin.

Best of luck to everyone out there. Merry Christmas...Happy Holidays...and all the very best to you and yours. =)

The extended battery would come in handy with my 9550. When I have Bluetooth, WiFi and Verizon data turned on, it goes quickly.

I could definitely use this gift certificate, my seidio case is held together with electrical tape and I need a bluetooth headset

ooooooooooohhhhhhhhhhhh lets cccccccccc ummmmmmmmmm.....a case, screen protectors, bluetooth and definitely last but certainly not least a car charger!!!!!!!!!!

New BB owner, I have no idea what I would choose if I was the lucky winner, but I would have fun shopping!

Dear Crackberry,

This is a great contest and just in time for the holidays :)...I could treat my blackberry, which I love, to some great accessories!! Thanks for the contest!!!!!!!

P.S. Pick me!!!

Definitely need an extended battery...I spend half my day on the phone while it's plugged in. The other option would be a nice blue tooth headset...that way I can step away while my BB is charging and still be on the phone.

Would make a great Christmas present to myself... my only problem would be picking only $100 worth of accessories :) Pick me please!

I was just convinced to buy my bold 9780 based on reviews by crackberry, so it would be great to win some accessories now to go with it

An extended battery and/or another charging pod would be sweet. I L-O-V-E the charging pod. I just don't want to drag it to work too.

I just picked up a body glove case and screen protectors for my torch, would love to add a few more things!

I have worn out my holster, car mount & all!! Could definitely use some new accessories but It's the kids who get all the Santa visits this year, So mama & papa are dead broke :) But It worth it! Nothing on this earth beats seeing those shining faces on Christmas morn. So I think Crackberry should help this Mama & Papa out this year :)

i would buy a BlackBerry Charging Pod because then id have somewhere to keep my blackberry at night, rather than finding it on the floor under my bed in the mornings :) it would also make it into an alarm clock for me :D

i would deffinetly would get something bluetooth as I just recieved my 3rd ticket for driving while on my blackberry.

...I would buy a charging cradle with another charger (for a BBTorch), but I bought a hard case from the Canadian Crackberry store...

I'd start with a bluetooth headset, and add some mini to micro USB adaptors and I'd go from there.

My BB Tour is my asset to manage my business and personal life. Here are the accessories I must have!

-Blackberry Charging Pod: If you don't have one, Get one!!
-Spare Battery: For those times when you can't wait for a charge.
-Blackberry Stereo Music Gateway: The ability to play music on your BB with no wires is awesome. It is always a conversation piece each time I pull this one out.

I'm still looking for an awesome car holster for the Tour. I want to mount it to my dashboard and use my BB Traffic to act as a GPS.

Hope I win!

Great contest!!! Those accessories would sure make life with Blackberry much more convenient! Oh please pick me and turn my luck around! Sure do love Crackberry!

I would get the extended battery for my 9650, the bluetooth, and some new cases. I find it really hard to find nice but yet good looking cases for my 9650.

I would definitely buy an extended battery so I can BBM my day away without having to worry about not having enough battery! Also I'd buy a bluetooth headset so I don't get caught by the oh-so nice police while to love laws! Safety first :P A leather holster would be nice too because I'm a big clutz..

There are so may accessories I'd like to get. A few would be the sync/dockn extra batteries, possible microSD as well

I would choose a new case and a new battery for my Storm. Or I would defer my gift until the Storm X (or whatever it turns out to be...) comes out! Merry Christmas!

I would definitely buy an extended life battery and some wireless headphones.
