View Contest Details and Submit your entry now!!



First! I think...
Does what we do have to be legal?

Kevin Michaluk

Visit the full contest page and read everything before asking questions like that.... :)

Can't be illegal, and nothing **stupid** that's going to kill you will be selected. That still leaves lots of crazy awesome and creative ideas wide open.

Be sure to check out the winners from the original What Would You Do for a BlackBerry Storm? Contest for ideas of what got chosen last time. 


So I can't throw blackberries at mall cops then...?

Oh well, I will just buy it and watch the fun happen.

Plazmic Flame

Question, how did you manage to Hulk Hogan to do this video for you? Amazing!


Hey Kevin, in the spirit of awesome crackberry contests maybe you should remind the community about the CrackBerry Contest: Share your Ten Thousand Reasons to Believe and you could win a BlackBerry 10 device!


hey kevin,

just side note, do you think for the bb10 commericals that rim is going to use the same approach like acura did with the split screen of a casual and business side of the same guy going to the car..i think that will be the best way to implement the evolution of OS..thanks for listening..


I think I could be a madcat :) but how much we will have to see lol


Oh no you didn't... lol this is going to be insane


This is going to be crazy!


Probably. Hopefully not as crazy as when the storm came out and buddy had it tattooed to his leg ha ha ha


I sense an extended hospital and or jail stay in my immediate future...

The blacker the berry the sweeter the use...


I have some ideas...But 1: I don't have access to a Photon Laser and 2: I can't get to the moon.. You think of the results of having both. :)


inb4 Blackberry 10 tattoo


Pay for it...

Berries forever!!!!!

Shadberry Bold

+100000 just pay for one


I was glad to see the idea to pay for it wasn't too far down in the comments. I too will just pay for it.


Make that three... However, if a case is thrown in...;o)


Exactly my thoughts! Why be crazy when you can just buy it .....


I will eat a pound of fresh blackberries in under a minute in an ugly sweater, Bill Cosby style! :) #BB10!!!


Is this anything like What would I do for a Klondike bar?
I don't know what I would do with out my berries!


I'm gonna slap Apple products and Android devices with Blackberry stickers around my school campus, lol. Along with getting put in jail for vandalism and battery probably.


I would spend the weekend with Ashley!!!!


This is the hardest one. But, what the heck! I don't need to get chosen, I'll volunteer for it. Kev can give the phone to someone else. lol


took the words right outta my mouth! :-)


1-she's got a guy, b-she doesn't like you,,, ;-)



I'm going to PAY IT in da SHOP! 700 bucks you must be crazy haahahaha

Wish we could See real madness.
Looking forward to it

I will go around and throw 10 pudding balloons for Blackberry 10!!

Torch 9810 -- Playbook 64GB


What is in this...pudding you speak of?


Sounds interesting and exciting.


I will make 1000 BlackBerry posters and post them all around my school and city. And of course those posters will have a crack berry link on it. Oh I'll be doing all that while wearing a crack berry hat and a keep Calm and Get BB10 shirt which I had made


ill do anything legal or illegal!!!!


Omg I'm all over this!!!!


ill drive up from ma to pick it up


I would be willing to walk into the ATT store here in Atlanta and pay for one cash money when it is released. How is that? Sounds good to me.


Lol agreed, anything else is stupid to do for just a phone.


I agree with you it is just a phone. Why do stupid this to get a phone for free. SMDH


I want one more than anyone out there. But I'd rather just spend $700 dollars than do something crazy/stupid/dangerous etc... for a CHANCE to win one of ten.

Kevin Michaluk

No no. It's not a chance to win. Once your idea is picked, you're a winner... you just have to follow through and do it to collect your prize.


Further clarity:
1) Decide on your insane idea and submit it, but DON'T do it.
2) Get picked for your awesome idea. (Lucky you!)
3) Do your insane idea!
4) Make Kevin personally hand deliever your new phone. That way you can get pictures of you and "the hair".


what if we pick an it...then submit the video. Is it still good?


I'll eat a jar or bowl of prunes and beets with hot sauce under a minute...LOL!


I hope that you followed up and gave these guys something awesome once you found out that the Storm was garbage.


I'd climb the higest mountain in Dominica again.
Something I vow to never do again.


I'd climb the higest mountain in Dominica again.
Something I vow to never do again.


I would smash my one and only BB Torch 9810 with a hammer for that. :P


supposed to show your love for blackberry... even for the old devices... would like to see that though


I will do everything :D:D


Hmmm, I can't wait to see these submissions. if it is anything like the previous crackberry contest (, this is gonna be off the wall.


Stealing an old man's false teef... While he's eating just after a hunger strike. That should do it.


Blow out a blind kid's birthday candles before he does. That's legal, right? Maybe not moral, but ehh...anything for that Blackberry 10 device! Okay, maybe not..


I'm due for an upgrade so all I need to do is go online or in store when it comes out :)


I would have sex with a Z10 , in a blacked out room, to keep it "legal" of course, and you can send the video viral with no royalties to me. ;)


Look at what all those poor bastards did for a stinky BlackBerry Storm..

That phone looked so awesome on paper before it came out.. It was BlackBerry's answer to the iphone and it was going to kick ass... Instead I think the Storm single handedly brought BlackBerry down. As an owner of the Storm 1 & 2, I can contest to it's weakness. It was a disaster..

Good thing we've all seen a pile of actual demonstrations on the BB10, so we KNOW it is going to kick ass!

I'll have to think about what I'd do for one...



Me thinks the first half of your post belongs on the "yesterday thread", let your demons go, I'll even pay for the exorcist. ;)

"kick ass " Yep!


Ha! I know brotha! I should see a therapist about those issue and let them gooooo.... I will forego the visiting of a priest tho.. those guys scare me. :)


I would paint a giant BB logo on my chest and back and then run down the street (about a mile long) next to my house in underwear at 6pm when everyone is getting home from work..


I would gather all my friends from ABDC ( JABBAWOCKEEZ, SUPER CREW, QUEST CREW ) combined all together with my 20 friends BB BOYS shut down the streets and perform a MOB over time square while performing Blackberry 10 plus will show on all time square adds..


~what ~would you do~~ooo~~oo for a Black~Berry phone!? :) (sorry had the klondike commercial rolling through my head when I read the title. But this is a cool contest :) trying to think of something...


Entered, kindoff hope I'm not picked lol


I'm going to go back in time to when BB10 was announced and start putting money away!!!

Wicked! It worked! I have around $1000 for a phone and some accessories! Woot time travel!

I look forward to watching some of you crazy people do crazy things!


eat 5 full onions wearing the itchiest sweater and run down my town square in my underwear xo xo xo


I just entered this contest, knowing full well I won't be picked. I just wasted 30 seconds of my life that I will never get back. Pretty crazy.


It wasn't a waste. I read your post.


posted what i was gonna do but contest rules suggested i dont... but i can brag about my contest id bieng 50... that has to be kinda lucky??? mabye???


Sure, brag about being number 50. I'm number 69! Luckiest number of them all!!!!!!!!


I will save a lot of money.... if you just give me a bb10 device.... would actually really help me out. Part time student and employee and have no extra money for bb10 but i'm a diehard fan! help out a fan? please?

just to make it worth your while, i'll do any crazy stunt or embarrassing act for it. You name it, you got it. ;)

i could.... punch through a bees nest? take a dump in front of the apple store? snowboard down a slope in my undergarments? dress up like a zombie and go to a public place and scare the shit out of people? i could go on and on.... let me know

I also work at a tattoo and piercing shop and would be down to pierce or tattoo anything on me... just sayin


Tattoo the BB logo on your wang and get a piercing on the tip with a blackberry shaped charm, and I'll buy you one!

Don't do this, I don't have the money to buy you one....


what i'm gonna do for a blackberry 10?????

I'll save up my money and use it to buy one as soon as it comes out!!!


I would shoot an apple off someone's head. But not with a gun. Now I have to figure out how. :) (loads of euphemism here)


I will dress up, head to toe, in BlackBerry attire and walk into my local apple store holding a sign that says Apple sucks, BB10 all the way. I will have my friend call the local news and tell them that we are holding an event at the store to raise awareness for the endangered Florida Key Dear which should get their attention .


Ok, because of popular demand I will add two girls in bikinis to the gig.


I gonna sacrifice here....I will play 10 rounds of golf while suffering the consequences of whatever the weather throws at us....In February....In Palm Springs. I know, I know, drastic and daring, but anything for a 10.


do this in barrow, alaska in feb, you might have a shot,,, the 2 chicks in stickers already won...



LOL...lived in the Yukon so I get it, agree the bikini sticker girls should win.


Hahaaa BerryCrazy let tha gamez entry is still loading hehee ths wil b fun..!
BerryInfinity---BB10 is the future


I would sell my unlocked Torch 9810 and pass out the proceeds to random homeless people on the corner and commit other Random Acts of Kindness!




I am in Costa Rica, can I be part of this? I do speak English =]


I Will simply purchase it when it became available in my region. No need to waste my time doing stupidity.




So where's your contribution/idea? Stop being a loser.


I will get my brother a Brazilion bikinis wax....and he's 280 lbs...and hairy.


I really hope I get selected, but I'm not telling you fools what I said I'd do!


Is getting drunk allowed??


I'll simply wait to buy my own.


No points for creativity :(


there are always 1 (or 2) women that are willing to get naked, or close to it,,, & i'm all for it but ya just can't win over that,,, but if you're willing to pay for my lessons i'll jump out of a perfectly good airplane wearing a crackberry 'chute...



I'll jump naked with the girls and require no training. But don't think anyone wants to see it lol.


Is it possible to make more than one entry?


I will sell my Torch 9800 and donate the proceeds to the charity of your choosing.


if it's for fun, I will throw my phone to the air and then race with it to see which is faster, me or my phone :)


I don't know WHAT I'll do for it. :D


I've used BB as long as I can remember, and I am looking forward to BB10. But that being said...

...what did all those poor people in the video think when they got their free Storm and found out it was hot garbage?

I got the Storm 2 which was supposed to have FIXED a lot of the bugs from the original, and even that was painful to use.


I will stand in front of a fast food store, and give the next 40 people that walk inside ( and currently have a BlackBerry ) a $5 bill and tell them that lunch is on me and CrackBerry Kevin.


I will contact 10, yes 10 app developers who currently have an app on iOS or Android but not on BlackBerry, with a very compelling case as to why they should program for BB10, complete with perhaps short videos to send to them - crackberry nation can help suggest which devs to go after.


I know, its not crazy or insane, but it would also really help the community.

Vish Upadhya

The new blackberry 10 leaked in a review, seems to be in some othere language and this aint the dev alpha version


I'd Do Anything For Love/BB10 (But I Won't Do That)


I'll write a thank you letter and mail it to Crackberry. I know I'm very outlandish.

Power Mac

If i win, I'll run in an Apple store totally naked showing and eulogizing my Curve 9360 (hoping that the police won't catch me).

Aleksandar Vukosav

My dear Crackberry nation. I will just save money for new BB10.


Pay the full list for one since I will have to break my current carrier contract.


I will buy a stolen dev alpha device!


I would spray or making a huge painting of Blackberry 10 signs on my neighborhood wall...Street Art
and i would also paint the tag line: Security, Social, Friends, Business, Leisure = Blackberry 10.

Matthew S

I will drink my own piss, yes you read that right

Matthew S

I will drink 200 mL of one of the hottest commercial hot sauces


Semper Fi
I'll name my first born legally CrackBerry


Must be 18 years or older to enter :(
I'm 3 years away from eligibility. Poop.

absolutely nothing, I am the customer here who has been waiting way to long!


Hmmm... I can't really think of much.

I suppose I could do a comparison of the PlayBook and my Nook Tablet, and use the losing tablet as fodder for my Glock 23, Bersa .380, savage .243, and mossburg 500.


And people say Apple fan boys are crazy.....


I will be working so I can afford a BB10 device. Just like I always do when I want to buy something.


This phone better be at least as compelling as anything else on the market or it's the end of the BlackBerry experience.


I would get on the street and tell as many ppl as I can I won the blackberry 10!


I would get on the street and tell as many ppl as I can I won the blackberry 10!


I will smash the Samsung S3 i'm currently using, lol~~~~~~~~

Brian Ouellette

I will make a Level dedicated to CrackBerry and Kevin in my upcoming game Orbital Launch! It will be released for BB10 and Playbook.

That would be fun to make :D


As a seminary student I will compose my next Sunday sermon on the new phone and will use the screen instead of notes to deliver it from the pulpit.


I will walk in an Apple store, put a BB10 + Apple logo shirt on, pretend I'm an employee and offer Blackberry phones to customers, telling them Apple has been taken over by RIM finally ;-)


I have a upgrade from AT&T from 6 Months. But i didn't upgraded to any phone. Because i am waiting for BB10.


Not sure what I would do to get a free Z10! I have already done this to try and win one check out post #189 of my truck on share your BB10 photo game.

Maybe I could plaster both sides of my truck with vinyl decals that run length of my truck and leave them there for a couple of months and show off my New Z10 from the win to impress people when they ask about my truck.


omg i did enter this to say i'll do something, but looking at previous entries i wont even bother!! a tattoo?? i'm obvs not that dedicated, will just wait to upgrade my contract :( lol


I'd do my weekly Tesco shop in nothing but blackberry logo'd underwear and shoes :)


never buy an apple product again


I would proudly show the Z10 to every iphone user even saying: "Blackberry is still alive!"


Not sure this is something I could survive, but I would "Fast" for a new blackberry. I would either suspend my phone line or activate a flip phone and go BB free for a week to win the new blackberry. I would even lock up my playbook. I am severely addicted, and I don't know how this would go. But I would try SOO hard if it means winning the latest and greatest BB10 device. Because I NEED it BADLY!!


I am able to tattooed the blackberry logo just to win one


I entered because I wanted to see if I would even get picked. Plus I can't afford to just buy one since my contract isn't up for another year. No matter if I win or if I have to buy one, I'm leaving WP for this. BB10 is awesome.


My first tablet is a "Playbook" and I think a BlackBerry-Smartphone will follow soon ... !
Thanks from Hannover, Germany. -
