Contest: Win a BlackBerry Tour 9630 from!



Is there a limit on the amount of posts? If we are posting multiple times to increase our odds, is that cheating or is that OK? I just don't want to be disqualified. Thanks!

I never win anything either, but figured it was worth a try. If I don't win then I'll just by the Tour whenever they finally make it available. I can't wait to get a hold of one!

haha maybe.. you'll be lucky.. the tour would be an amazing phone to have bold+curve+verizons network wha!??!!

When I upgraded from my Pearl to the Curve 8330, I didn't have much to spend, but I KNEW a really amazing new phone would come out! I'm going to be wracked with envy until I can afford one, so here's hoping I win!!!

I'm in the Army and I make $1600 a month. Now tell me I don't deserve something free. We work 70 hour weeks, help a brother out. I love crackberry!!!!

to be honest, its just simple. Great camera, great os, fantastic keyboard. it has everything i want in a blackberry and i just wish i had the money to buy one when it comes out.

I do too, my friend.. No money for a new phone, plus I am not eligible for an upgrade until Feb '10. Sheesh.. I don't think I could wait that long..

I owned a blackberry for two years now, and can't get enough of it. first 8330, then a storm and would love to have a 9630 next!!

Hopefully I will win this one and be notified soon, since I plan on getting the phone July 12 regardless....


i had a storm since may this year, i type a lot of emails a day and couldnt deal with the poor OS any longer even after all the hybrids etc. I sold it and just got a curve because of the real keyboard. I was originally waiting out for the Tour since the date was up in the air, but now its coming and i'd really like to get it. Winning this contest would be a nice touch :) world capability, fast, seems stable os, and one of the best keyboards ive seen makes the tour perfect for me!


i want i WANT!

Bringing the LOVE on the physical keyboard cuz up in canada, its NEEDED when there is snow on the ground 8 months out of the year... and my pearl's ball is falling out, this phone cant come soon enough!!

I'm so with you on your comment. The storm is so over rated. Now, if the Storm 2 has gotten rid of the sure type and make so I can use my nails as a stylus, then were in business.

Please for all that is right and just in this world let me win so I can move past the pain of owning a storm.

Hey everyone!

So I just graduated college and have to go on my own plan now. But I simply can't afford having a blackberry. But my mom just threw me a graduation party. (Keep in mind shes a single mom, raising 2 kids). So I trying to save up and get her the tour. But with school loans, I can't afford it.

So if I were to win this Tour- it'd be going to her.

Thanks for my consideration.

I totally agree. However, if things look so grim from a financial standpoint... how are they going to afford paying for a data + voice plan? Live within your means - stick with a regular phone until things improve. Give me the Tour!

I'm gonna attempt to purchase one anyways, so this would make life easier. I love my Storm, but need a QWERTY with all the emails I send during the day. Love the Tuh Tuh Tuh TOUR!

Always nice to win but i wonder if i would switch from my storm?
I guess I would have to win to find out!

What better way to see the world than to 'Tour' it!!!

Hopefully this will allow me to do that...

What I love about the Tour is the real keyboard!!!

My GF wanted a Storm, so we got in on Verizon's Buy one, Get one free. I miss the real keyboard on my Curve!

Well, I guess I love how it starts of SALTY and instantly end up SWEET once you play with it for a little while!!

Would love to win one of these puppies. I love blackberry's and don't thing I'll ever user another type again.

Because that phone is frikkin' awesome! I had a Pearl, shot to the Storm but sometimes I miss a keyboard so hook a loyal Crackberrian up.

what i love about the blackberry tour... IT'S THE PERFECT BLACKBERRY! Bold's keyboard, size of the 8830, camera, and great OS!!!!! PLEASE PICK ME! I WON'T BE ELIGIBLE TO ACTUALLY GET ONE UNTIL MARCH OF 2010 UNLESS I BUY IT RETAIL!!! please pick me!

I hope that I win this. The Tour is just awesome plain and simple. The keyboard is also a plus (the Storm screen is pissing me off).

I get new phone every year and ever since 1998 i always get blackberry phone. I always works and its very durable.

Looks good! And with my vzn upgrade credit, it won't be a budget buster. Of course, a FREE 9630 would help the budget even MORE!!!

I purchased my first Blackberry a few months ago. It's a 8830 WE and just fell in love with them. I do miss having a camera so I have been patiently waiting for the tour to hit the stores. I have toyed with idea of waiting on the Storm 2 but like the keyboard. Looking forward to having this phone in my pocket.

Finally a new Blackberry for sprint! I really want this one and winning it sure would help with my finances.

I picked up a storm in early january and while i fully expected to hang onto it for a while the crack of the berry has taken a hold of me. The tour looks sweet and i think i would love it. I just cant make up my mind So i guess i will have to buy both or maybe i will win a tour!! I could happen. This is why i love crackberry, always giving back to the members.

I love the blackberry tour. What I love about it?????????????
The camera, the OS, the blackberryness. I love the design, OH MAN. I just love it. Is it legal to marry a blackberry tour? Anyways I hope I win!!!!!!!!!!

Sign me up.

What you love about the BlackBerry Tour? I don't have it yet, so isn't that premature? I may hate it. (Unlikely.)

I dig that it will be faster, more app mem, better screen, newer OS, better browser. That what tickles my needs.

OMG I CANNOT WAIT FOR THIS TO COME OUT FOR VERIZON. i have been waiting for this phone for about 8 months, ever since i got my Storm. unfortunately i probably wont be able to purchase it outright because my contract isnt up for an upgrade till next year :(

help me crackberry!!!!

Please Please Please pick meeeeeeeeee, I love everything about this phone and totally need one. If i win i would be glad to donate my blackberry curve which is almost brand new to any cause you have. I would love to get my hands on a device of this caliber, help out my recession lol. Good luck to everyone

Had a Storm for two weeks and just couldn't get on to the typing. The Tour is the Berry to beat for CDMA carriers. Want it!

Sweet. Would love to have a Tour. I really like the way the buttons are configured on the Tour. The runnerup prizes are awesome too. Please consider me.

If I had known about the tour back in December, I probably would have waited for it instead of getting the Storm....

Who would have thought a crackberry could take away my stress
but at the end of the day we know Crackberry is the best
so quit playin games the blackberry tour no more no less

I want a 9630 so bad because I live and die by my blackberry and my 8330 is letting me down big time with it's constant lagging.

I Would love to have a blackberry tour for Verizon. It looks awesome and I have a blackberry condition, I have to have the latest phone. Please help me. LOL

I'm an offical CRACKhead and would love to have the new Tour!!! This thread should be "what would you do for a Blackberry Tour"

I want this phone MAJORLY....I too am a offical CRACKhead. What would i do??? Set up a lemonade stand and sale blood at the same time....just to get my nickels and dimes together to get this BEEOTCH! WE WANT TOUR

I'd love to rock the 9630 Tour...I mean lets face it, most Storm Owners out there would love one...Here's tome winning!

First and formost....I am a big fan of Blackberry(ever since I got my first Blackberry 8830). Right now, I have the Blackberry 9530 and would L.O.V.E. to get a Blackberry Tour because I think it's a big upgrade from a 9530(in my opinion). Not to mention, being surprise, that it comes the day after my birthday and my birthday is on the 11th of July. So, the month of July is the best month to release a new Blackberry. I hope I win a Blackberry Tour. It will be the first time I win anything in life. GO TOUR! GO!

Having gone through mostly all of the BlackBerry models for Verizon Wireless, my Storm is pretty much on its last limbs (not that I recklessly use it), but I've gone through 3 Storms (for various reasons, malfunctions, defects, etc...) and would like the Tour once released.
