Jul 04, 2014 Accessory Roundup - Enter to win an Edifier Tick Tock Bluetooth Clock

Even though it's summer on this side of the planet, most of us still have places to be, which means we can't just sleep all the time! I personally always use Bedside Mode at night on my BlackBerry. My phone is my alarm clock, and that way I don't get bothered with notifications all night and my alarm wakes me up on time every day. Taking things one step further, the very cool Edifier Tick Tock Bluetooth Clock connects to your BlackBerry via Bluetooth and syncs up your alarm clock, giving you an even more awesome solution. You can play music thanks to the built-in speakers and even connect directly via the 3.5mm jack. Overall it's a great way to geek out your alarm clock.

Grab it now at or keep reading for your chance to win one!

Jun 26, 2014 Summer Accessory Roundup - You could win an Aquapac case for your BlackBerry!

Aquapac saves the day!

It's summertime and for a lot of people that means trips to the lake, long days at the beach, and evenings at the pool. All of those things CAN spell D-I-S-A-S-T-E-R for your BlackBerry if you're not careful! Water damage is no joke, and sand is definitely not your phone's BFF. While there are many cases out there that protect against drops and other physical happenings, Aquapac is a CrackBerry favorite for protecting against water damage and pesky sand invasions.

The CrackBerry store has several different options when it comes to waterproof cases, so you'll definitely want to take a look before you head out to summer adventures. In the meantime, keep reading to see how you could win a free waterproof case of your own!

Jun 02, 2014 Win a BlackBerry Classic or Passport!!!

Login to and leave a comment to this article for your chance to win an IOU for a BlackBerry Classic or BlackBerry Passport (windermere) when it becomes available!!

UPDATE: The BlackBerry Windermere is officially the Passport — the BlackBerry Classic will be launching in November!

June is here and I wanted to start the month with an awesome CrackBerry contest. I was thinking about giving away an in-market phone like the BlackBerry Z30 or Q10, but I know so many of you in our CrackBerry audience are already looking forward to two new flagship BlackBerry 10 devices that will be coming to market in the months ahead: the BlackBerry Classic or BlackBerry Passport.

The BlackBerry Classic has already been officially announced by BlackBerry, and brings the traditional BlackBerry trackpad and menu and back buttons to the BlackBerry 10 experience. The "Windermere" is still rumored, but is looking to be pretty 'effen cool, with some crazy specs that include a BIG display and a capacitive touch keyboard. If you win this contest, you'll get an IOU for whichever device you choose, as soon as the phones become available. For more info on these phones, visit our BlackBerry Classic or BlackBerry "Windermere" topic pages.

How To Enter:

Simply login to and leave a comment to this article letting us know which of the two phones you'd want to win, and why. Contest is open worldwide. Contest ends midnight PST on June 30th.

That's it for this one. Enter. Enter now. And good luck!!

May 08, 2014 Accessory Roundup - Enter to win a media card for your BlackBerry!

With all the flashy accessories out there now, the importance of an SD card is sometimes overlooked. Whether it is music, videos, pictures, or all your personal documents, these cards let us take all of our favorite data, photos, and videos with us everywhere. While most BlackBerry devices now come with an SD card, for most of us that typical 2GB card is just is not enough. The SanDisk 64GB Mobile Ultra microSDXC will take care of that problem however.

This microSD card is a great solution for your media needs. It can store more than you could ever want (unless you have crazy needs) and is twice as fast as standard cards. It's also shock proof, water proof and temperature proof. What more could you want? You can grab it now at, or keep reading for your chance to win one!

Be sure to check out the full selection of media cards and readers for your BlackBerry at ShopCrackBerry.

Media cards galore!

May 01, 2014 Accessory Roundup - Enter to win a photography accessory for your BlackBerry!

I know we're all still feeling a bit burnt buy the crappy camera on the Bold 9900 (I am at least), but the BlackBerry 10 devices actually have some pretty solid camera action when it comes down to it. I've been able to snag some awesome shots on my Z30, and that almost makes up for all of the busted ones I snagged on my 9900.

Apr 21, 2014 Accessory Roundup - Leave a comment and you could win a new Bluetooth speaker for your BlackBerry!

Another one of my go-to accessories for summer is a solid Bluetooth speaker. I love my Sonos when I'm indoors, but when I head out to the patio I don't have anything wired up, so I bring along my BlackBerry and a speaker to spread the tunes. There are plenty available — from the ever-portable BlackBerry Mini Speaker to the pumped-up sound of the SuperTooth Disco Bluetooth Stereo Speaker. No matter what your pleasure, we've got one to suit your music listening needs.

Check out all of our great Bluetooth speakers and keep reading for your chance to win!

Apr 09, 2014 Accessory Roundup - Enter to win a car kit for your BlackBerry!

Spring is nearly upon us and for me, that means road trips. I look forward to the warmer weather when I can pack the family in the car and hit the road for destinations unknown — but not without my BlackBerry along for the ride. For that I always make sure to have a car mount handy so my BlackBerry is at the ready when it need it for navigating, playing music or just taking phone calls.

My current setup is for my Q10 using the ProClip Suction Cup Mount, but I also have an Aduro U-Grip+ Universal Car Mount ready to roll should I change up devices on the fly.

Whatever your setup, we have the perfect solution for your BlackBerry in the car — check out all the great car kits & mounts at, and keep reading for your chance to win one!

Mar 27, 2014 Accessory Roundup - Enter to win an external charger for your device!

One of my favorite accessories for all of my BlackBerry devices is a good spare or external battery. In the case of the BlackBerry Q10 or BlackBerry Z10, the battery charger bundle is both an external and spare battery. You can charge up a spare to use in the device, or simply plug in the microUSB to use it as an external charger.

The tBlackBerry Z30 doesn't have this luxury however since there is no removable battery. While either of the battery charger bundles can work as an external battery for the Z30 to give it some extra juice, the BlackBerry 2100mAh Mobile Power Charger Micro-USB is packing a ton of juice that will keep your Z30 juiced up on the go when you need it the most.

You can check out our full selection of spare batteries and external chargers at There is one available for nearly every device, so no matter what you're using you should be able to find the one you need.

Dec 12, 2013 Accessory Roundup - Win a pair of touchscreen gloves for your BlackBerry!

The weather is turning pretty crappy here in New Jersey this week. I'm sure there are plenty of other places (like the Peg) that are way colder, but for us winter is well underway. I've busted out my snow tires, shovels and winter clothes, making sure not to forget my favorite accessory of all. I'll admit that when you get to the point that you need touchscreen gloves for your phone you're a bit more than an addict, but that's okay with me. 

So as winter sets in for many people, we're helping to spread the holiday cheer. Since we're in such a giving mood, we'll offer up not one, but three pair of touchscreen gloves from ShopCrackBerry. You can take your pick between the Glider or Arduro gloves and ensure that you'll never have to be phoneless -- even when you're braving the cold weather. 

Keep reading for contest details -- and no, you can't pick the awesome BlackBerry gloves in the photo above :-)

Sep 22, 2013 Win a box full of awesome CrackBerry stuff!

This weekend hasn't gone exactly as planned for many people. BBM didn't get launched on other platforms quite as it was supposed to, and lots of people are confused and upset about it. We get that. We're all in this together, and this too shall pass, in one way or another. However, it's still the weekend, and in honor of that we have cooked up an awesome little plan where we're gonna give away five boxes full of CrackBerry swag!

There may be a t-shirt, there may be stickers, there may be a coffee mug, pens, sticky notes or any manner of great CrackBerry (and maybe BlackBerry!) stuff crammed into a box and sent to your door. We've got a big pile of it, and the best thing to do when you have a pile of cool stuff is to share some of it.

Want to try and win one of the boxes? That's the easy part. Make sure you registered at CrackBerry with a real email address. If we pick you, we need to know how to get in contact with you. If you didn't and we pick your name, we'll never know where to send your loot and we have to give it to someone else. That would totally suck, so make sure it doesn't happen.

Once you've done that, just leave a comment below. We'd like to hear some positive thoughts, so let's see what you got! We'll pick five winners at random next week. All that's left for you to do is check your email and see if you were one of them.

Ready? Set? Go!
