180 Comments

this is a gr8 app !!! especially to the ones who get frustrated when they cannot find their BB... like me :P

Congratz to all the winners this week. Hope I win a copy of Find My Phone, looks like a great app to play with, and handny when and if I lose me phone. Good luck to you all!

I lose my phone at least 3 times a day lol....between my nephew playing games with me and hiding all over my house, to my just placing it somewhere and forgetting it lol

That's only because I lost and can't find my BB. :( It's somewhere at my cottage, lost in the mess!

Bueno ya no tendre pretexto de andar molesto por no poder encontrar mi bb black. Le entro al concurso... Gracias crackberry

Having had my holster free itself from it's clip on a walk through the bush and having to borrow my wife's phone to call mine every 20 feet or so has suggested to me this would be a good app.

I always lose my phone so this will help. In fact my phone is lost right now but the trail period is over so I really need to win in order to find my phone.

....and my keys and my purse.... I am soooo the poster child for needing this app!!! Too many things to do, see and keep track of! Pleeeeasssse let me win lol. :)

Find My Phone sounds like a great app. I always, always, always have my BlackBerry with me, but I would want to know that I have an app that will help me find it, regardless of the active profile. :)

Find My Phone for the win! I live in LA and am a card carrying medical marijuana patient. Needless to say, a copy of Find My Phone would be friggin sweet. I can be a bit forgetful at times...

Congrats to last weeks winners. Hopefully I can be one of next weeks-I can never find my phone!

I *DEFINITELY* NEED ONE, PLEASE?!
I'm at the tail end of packing boxes in my home office. Finally moved them out in the empty family room. Came back in my office - WHERE'S MY PHONE? Checked my purse, checked everywhere! Finally used my home phone to call my Storm. I'd hear only a short, muted burst of sound and finally realized that I have an escalating ring tone set for my home phone calling my cell. Great. I can't remember how long it took but I found it in box #5. It wasn't only yesterday, but I keep my phone on my lap in the car. I can't tell you how many times I've lost it in there. Thanks for the offer Crackberry!

This looks like a super app for our BB. Hopefully this will wind up on my new Blackberry.

Thanks for letting us have a chance to win this great app.

Seems like a great app and perfect for my style; simple & sleek.

Good luck to everyone! Thanks again CB for another opportunity, I'll win one of these days!

Congrats to those on the list who won! I'll be on it some day!

-Rich

I would love a copy of Find My Phone. When things get hectic it would be nice to have an app to help me find my blackberry!

For something that never leaves my side long including having it in a cradle at bedside, I lose it all the time. My wife get's so frustrated. We run all over the house calling it from her phone or the house phone. Same if I think it is in the car.
Find My Phone would be very helpful. Going to trial it right now

Thank you for the contest.

I have had memory problems since my accident last august and lose my phone on an almost daily basis this would be the best application. really hope i win.
