Contest: Smart Lock and Wipe - 100 Free Copies

Smart Lock and Wipe

One quick Friday contest before everyone jets out for the long weekend. In the US we'll be celebrating Columbus day while the Canadians have Thanksgiving. They'll be celebrating what they are thankful for - family, friends, food and ... BlackBerrys. What better way to give thanks for your device than to treat it to some security with Smart Lock and Wipe. This application lets you remotely wipe your device should it be lost or stolen. You can activate the app from any mobile phone or by emails or SMS, and your device will be wiped of precious data like email, call logs and contact information. A little bit of extra security goes a long way. Smart Lock and Wipe sells in the CrackBerry App Store for $5.99, but we have 100 free copies to give away. Just leave a comment on this post, and to make it interesting, tell us why you are thankful for your BlackBerry. Contest ends this Sunday at Midnight PST. Please only leave one entry - multiple submissions won't count.

Contest: Smart Lock and Wipe - 100 Free Copies



I would love to have this app! I'm also thankful for my BB because it keeps me organized. I'm never late for appointments, always seem to get tasks completed because of it. My Blackberry is my Swiss Army Knife!

I'm thankful for my BB b/c it really keeps me together. With one device i can figure out how to get across the city, see what emails i've missed, check the latest headlines and just have fun while on the rail or T. With this addition, i'll have the added security of knowing that if I lose my device, i won't lose precious info.
Have a great Friday everyone!

hey i could sure use this since i am always on the run with my kids and i am always afraid of losing my berry and i lost it twice preovious and it sucks to feel like i did hook it up please.

I'm thankful of my blackberry because mine stays in my pocket whereas my wife keeps losing hers. I have an understanding and a kinship with my BB and we work great together. I am thankful for my little companion.

I do hope I win this app. The more you use a blackberry, the more you put on it. If I lost my bb I would be so worried about the data on it, but no more with Smart Lock and Wipe.

I do hope i win this!!!!!

Would be very useful, as mentioned I've lost 2 other smart phones over the past3 years. Thank for the great contest CB

I was super against blackberry's for years. In fact I even had an old curve as my work phone for 1 week and returned it to verizon.

Now that I decided to try one out as my personal phone I don't think I'll ever own another non-BB device. Everything is on this phone and then some.

congrats to the person who created this app..I am new to the blackberry family..bought my curve on october 5 as a birthday gift to myself..but cant believe the difference between this and my old actually works..I am currently exploring my options with this device, and would love to have this app to start the collection I figure I am going to have..

I am thankful for my BlackBerry helping keep me organized, without it, I'd forget about all sorts of dates and appointments! It also makes for an awesome messaging device.

Hook me up with a copy of Smart Lock and Wipe!

My Blackberry is the best replacement of my wife. The last thing I look at before I go to bed and the first thing that greets me when I wake up.
Would love a copy, Thanks...

I am thankful for BlackBerry because without it I would not know what day, date, time, or weather it was. I would not be able to meet people on time, find my way to them, or remember important details such as email, snail mail, birthday, spouse, kids, etc... My BlackBerry allows me to be busy and productive.

Either this or e-GPS!!!

I just wish someone would run a full test on either and let us know if the device and card are actually wiped!

i love my blackberry i dont know what i would do without i am a hermit so i like to stay connected with the outside world.

Get through the day with my BB, and wouldn't know what to do if my information was in the hands of others... Sounds like a great app!

I love my BB because I have always had a hard time remembering dates, appointments, names, numbers, etc. My BB covers me for everything, it never lets me down. If I forget a password to a website, a phone number to the heating company, the name of salesperson that i need later, my BB is always there to help save the day. Throw in the fact that it helps me stay in contact with old friends via Facebook and other social networks, helps me browse the web, and hey, it also makes really good phone calls. I'm afraid I'm addicted... for life.

I am thankful for my berry because I am now an instant information appendix. "When was Maryland founded?" oh I'm not sure let me look that up for you. 2 seconds later, problem solved. I love the quickness and ease for which it gives me information and connectivity in a reliable platform. Thank you berry.

I am thankful for my blackberry cause it does everything. It is the one place that everthing is stored. The only way it could be better was...... well i wont get explicit. But basically it does everything while keeping me connected.

I am thankful for my blackberry helping me stay connected to all my friends and family and can forget crackberry

I'm thankful for my Blackberry because it allows me to always be in touch with all of my friends at any time. There's so many things I can do with this phone that I'm probably hooked for life.

This app is an important thing to have on any phone.

...and getting it for free would be that much better!

I'm thankful for my Blackberry because it has kept me in touch with otherwise hard to reach Family and friends and on top of life in general for the last couple years. At this point I realy don't know what I would do with out it. It's actually a really huge part of keeping in touch with my Father and I couldn't be more thankiful for that.

Everyone have a great Columbus Day Weekend in the US and a Happy Thanksgiving in Canada!

Well, I, like most, are thankful because without my BlackBerry I'd be completely lost. I keep everything on it and if I was to lose it, someone would be able to get a great deal of my information. I have everything from appointments to anniversaries, work schedule, vacations, 6 email accounts and many other things going on with my Tour. I've given both my old BlackBerries to my fiance, of which BOTH of them have been lost with her information on it and we had to do some credit-cleanup because someone figured out her easy password.

This application would have been a godsend!

I'm probably most thankful that the fact I even have a Blackberry. I've gone a year without any smartphone of any type do to the cost of the data plan, but the fact I can afford one now, is great.

My BB is not just a phone, not just place to keep contact info and a to-do list, not just a way to connect to the world via the internet, not just entertainment but an indispensable tool that keeps my in touch, organized, prepared and happy! Best of all, my company pays for it!!! I am thankful for my BB.

My wife and I just got our BlackBerries last week and WOW! We are addicted already. I am on at least 5 times per day and I can't put my phone down. My wife and I have been sitting in the same room and using messenger! We are thankful that we are finally able to work and play (thanks to BB) on the go!

Had something similar for an old windows mobile device. Would love to have one for the BB! The BB is much more stable for me than WinMo in a business environment.


My Blackberry keeps my crazy life somewhat sane. It helps me to stay organized and in touch with all the people that I need to help manage my life. I don't know how I would function without it!!

I have been so thankful for my berry for the added communication for both work and personal. Since having my berry I have been able to keep in closer contact with family members that are communicating via email. Some have not fully embraced the use of cell phone(they are on the elderly side and have a hard time seeing the keys to dial let alone send text) For my business it has allowed me to almost double sales as I am in constant contact no matter how my customers choose to reach out to me. They truly have appreciated the ability to reach me at anytime. Smart Lock will be the added security I need should the unfortunate happy and I loose my life line to everyone I know.
Please pick me.

Thank you for the chance to win this added security.

I'm thankful for my BlackBerry because it connects me with EVERYTHING in my world. My emails, contacts, Facebook, SMS, .. everything is in it. This is my first BlackBerry and by all means I will NEVER go back to a typical phone. This phone is definately in a class of it's own and nothing else can compare, i'm thankful that when I am playing with my BlackBerry everyone looks at me in a weird way. I also love the way I can customize it down to the last T when it comes to software.

So this year I am VERY greatful for my BlackBerry.

I'm thankful for my Blackberry because I don't know where I'd be without it. It gets me through school, work, basically my whole day. I really don't see how I could survive without it. I know I would go through some type of withdrawal. I realized when I got my berry that it really is an addiction. Sometimes I feel the urge to go up to random people and have conversations about their berry and ask for their pin. This app would definitely help me to treat my berry better so I really hope I win.

i am thankful for my blackberry because it has become a part of me!

without my blackberry i wouldnt be able to keep track of all my emails and contacts

I'm down for this...i'm terrified I will lose my phone with all my information on it lol Always have been no matter what phone it is.

I am thankful for my blackberry because it provides me with instant access to my FB when I am at work and cannot access it or anywhere else... I also love that I can play games to cure boredom while waiting for movies to start.... waiting in the doctors office, etc.... It is my entertainment most days. Plus if I didn't have my Blackberry I would have never found and have my day filled with reading posts about the great things this little machine can do!

I'm thankful for my BlackBerry, because without it I wouldn't know what to do without it in my life. It keeps me going and on track everyday, and if I ever lost it I'd be totally lost.

I wish there was an app to wipe my memory of boyfriends past....I'd pay good money for that!

My BB enaables me to talk with people without having to actually "talk" to them... So very thankful for that... Also this app is nice but we need one that would automatically wipe & brick a phone... If someone steals my phone..

How can you not be thankful for your blackberry? :P

Bored? Blackberry
Need to make a call? Blackberry
Sports update? Blackberry
Need to look something up? Blackberry

I think you get the idea :P

I am thankful for my Blackberry for it has let me see that the Iphone is for kids. This special piece of equipment has made my life so much easier. Thank you RIM and Blackberry..

This sounds like a great product, well than again everytime crackberry has one of their awesome contest its always a great product you never know I could probably win :)

I'm thankful for my BlackBerry because it keeps me connected, and helps me be not bored on car rides.

I would love a copy of this. I just wish these types of apps had a trial version. The only app I have taken a risk with buying without a trial is QuickLaunch which I don't regret at all. But this is another MUST have app.

I'm definitely up for this app.
As for thankful well the list wouldn't end.
I survived (so far) a medical condition, a nice toy to play with while in the hospital for almost a month.
The toy was a new Storm, and I'll be on line for version 2.
I miss WIFI capabilities.
Family, changes in life, as well as technology.
I'll stop here?


My Blackberry is a lifesaver because it lets me keep in touch with everyone when I am on-the-go, which is almost constantly.

This app would be great for me since I have so much private info on my Berry! Hope I win this!

This is something I could really use,
and although I would gladly pay for it
I would love the feeling of Winning it..
I use my BlackBerry for EVERYTHING.
I was not new to the PDA thing,
having been a Palm supporter since the first
Handpring Treo.
But my Blackberry is so much more reliable.
And reliability, functionality, is what I need in
a PDA/Phone combo.
I love it, and believe this software would make it alot
more secure.

I am thankful for my Blackberry because now I can be contacted 24/7 by my customers and I can work 24 hours a day. I have never been happier! It is soo great that I can never get away from my job or my boss. Hip Hip Hooray!

This would have came in handy this past weekend as I lost my phone and I didnt lock it. So, whoever found my phone was able to see EVERYTHING and got a FREE $500 dollar phone. Ugh!

I'm utterly dependent on my Blackberry. It has become an extension of my own brain, and my continuous link to the world (when I'm home) and my family (when I'm on the road).

If it were lost or stolen, I would love Smart Lock & Wipe.

My blackberry has changed the way I work. It has freed me from my desk and allows me to spend more time with my family.

Free software is always nice.

Thankful for my BlackBerry because? Well I am just thankful. Too many reasons to choose just one.

Interesting app, something I hope I never need, but just in case I'm going to leave a comment and cross my fingers.

I am sooooo thankful for my blackberry because it brings me good news instantaneously, it is developed in my beloved Java programming language and of course because it brought me to CRACKBERRY.COM !!!!! =)

I have a Blackberry Storm from VZW. This is my first Blackberry and I couldn't believe what I had been missing for the past 5 years. This is my first smart phone and I can tell you that I can't live without it. I'm on it about 10 hrs of the day trying to find something to add or change on it (Apps, games, or themes). It's so reliable and all my friends have one. We can all stay connected with the BBM. Oh the BBM 5.0 running on .230 is awesome. Thanks RIM Blackberry.

I am so thankful for my bb because it is a lifesaver! It allows me to be in touch at all times and provides me with a place to keep all the important stuff...without it I would be completely lost and confused! Love my Blackberry!!

I dont work for the government or a bank so i would love a free app to make me really learn the true meaning of Colunbus Day!!

Plus who doen't love a little security!

I have too much important information on my Bold, so this would be great god forbid I lose my precious blackberry.

I could really use the app, since I work around a lot of people who would love to have my phone for free. Help me keep my information private should someone decide to take mine.

no such thing as too safe. This apps would provide the needed security and peace of mind when such the unavoidable happen!

This is what every BB owner needs. Kudos to its developers. I am a new BB owner of the tour and this should be pre-installed on every BB that RIM makes. RIM is a business platform and I would hate to compromise my clients information that I have stored on here. This application is a no brainer. Thumbs up and keep up the good work.

I love my Blackberry because it is the one thing in my life that does not talk back to me when I ask it to do something.

Here is intersting:

My previous blackberry I left ON THE TOP OF MY CAR when I drove off. I work in a hilly part of Austin (360) so I think it flew into the ravine. I searched numerous times and have given plenty of blood and and ripped clothes back to nature while searching.

Never did find it. :(

I'm still thankful because the GPS is SOOO useful especially when the wife has no sense of direction. I don't have to worry about her reading a map anymore!

First, thanks for the opportunity to have a chance to win a copy of "Smart Lock and Wipe".
One reason I am thankful for my BB is more face time with my wife. I have cut back considerably sitting in front of my PC chacking email, going on the web, playing games, etc. Now, I can be with my wife, catch the incoming emails briefly, etc., and still be "with my wife".

Wouldn't mind getting a copy. I'm thankful for my blackberry cause I finally found a toy I won't get bored of anytime soon.

i use this for my 11hr work day in a boring all my new cuts, use it in school for both work and personal reasons, can give a million reasons y i missed someones call and besides that...guys have dumped me bc i mpay more attention to my phone than i do to them...LOL...pick me!!!

Been looking for something like this so I could wipe different things. Would love to have a copy. I have three Tours and if win copy will buy two more.

I love my CrackBerry because it lets me do almost anything I want at anytime. Someone needs to figure out how to get World of Warcraft to run on it though......or Ventrilo.......

If it weren't for my blackberry, I would be seriously lost. It keeps me organized as far as letting me know when I work, different promos going on at work, what time to pick up my kids after work. I am so reliant on my blackberry that being away from it causes panic. I am an addict but I can admit it. So I want to say THANK YOU to my blackberry for keeping me complete and organized.... now if it can find me a guy... it would be perfect!

I'd like to get a copy of this because it would make me feel more confident keeping information on my phone knowing I have other securities in place besides a password and encryption. If I don't get my phone back at least I know they don't have personal information.

to be honest i never really liked BB but then i played around with a curve and fell in love with the BB. after a few months of customzing and exploring the bb i left it for a iphone...let me tell you that i had to run back to a bb because it is the best phone out there. i feel complete with my bb. i am now using a bold with tmobile and can wait for the new storm.

Yea.. I guess I am. Seems that Because I have a BB I spend way more time
Maintaining the phones various functions. Which can be a pain. However, it
Is those very same functions and features that I love so much. Just getting
My email on my phone is enough. But we can do so much more. Now let me finally
Win something!

at this time of global crisis information is more valuable as having the certainty that is sheltered is vital,

hmm where do i begin, my first BB has made me that much organized and put that much data at the tip of my finger. at the same time i am able to keep in touch with people wherever i am with various means, like the great BBM. So yeah im thankful for my BB as well as any other smartphone out there.

Count me in

And I'm thankful for my Blackberry, cause I can still be reachable, but in a non intrusive way... An email can always be answered later... ;)

I am extremely thankful for my BlackBerry. I am in college and if it were not for my BlackBerry, I would not be able to stay on top of my online classes because I also have a full time job. If it were not for the incredible capabilities of my BlackBerry, I could never pass all my classes.

I am thankful for by BB because now my wife doesn't have to send 7 SMS's for the shopping list - just 1 email, and I get the whole thing.

because it allows me to reach out in touch in so many ways. to acquire knowledge, to give comfort, to lend support, to buy amenities, to get my bearings. I loved my Blackberries for years!

Best thing about my blackberry is being able to find movie times, and store locations/phone numbers while I'm out. Makes life so much easier.

My Blackberry Storm is for personal use only. I tried other touch screen phones but none had all the features that allow me to stay connected with friends and family. I especially like the
camera and large screen which allows me to show photos I've taken.

I could really use this. I am always buying the latest and greatest Blackberry and selling my old one on ebay.

Wouldn't mind getting a copy. I'm thankful for my blackberry cause I finally found a toy I won't get bored of anytime soon.

First off my BB is my life. I'm on it all day and night. Just ask my wife... My BB is competing with her snuggle time at bet time... She goes to bed earlier than I do because I'm on my Berry. Now for Smart Lock & Wipe, just the other day I thought I had lost my BB. The first thought that came to mind was, "Isn't there an application that could wipe my BB form remote?" Well fortunately I found my Berry and all was good, but for that time when she was nowhere to be found I was in a panic. Hats off to Magilab for making a remote wipe possible. Thanks CB and Maglab!

PS... Knocking the socks (boots or whatever you may be wearing at the time) always makes up for a little missed snuggle time.

I'm thankful or my blackberry because it's easy to keep in touch with people. I just moved to another state and bbm keeps me in quick and easy contact with friends.

As far as being thankful for our blackberrys, I think we are all on the same page. What device has revolutionized the way we communicate and do business as much as our BlackBerrys? Having tried so many different devices on so many different OSs, I can honestly say nothing compares to my BB. I have been using the Storm since the day it showed up in stores, and I have been hooked ever since. Even with the "oh so bad" .65 and even .75 OS it still made life just that much easier. And surly, we could never go back to anything less (even a MyPod... Sorry, Iphone) ;)
Just a thought...

I need Smart Lock and Wipe pick me. My blackberry is my buddy helps me with almost everthing though out the day.

To proud to have a phone such as the blackberry. Beats having the Iphone on so many levels. I get to handle my business like a true professional. How can you not love the Berry?

Please count me in. I had entered a contest before and won, but then realized it wasn't compatable with my phone.

Hope I win!!! lol
