Hook me up crackberry!!!!!!!!

fooster#CB

Great phone, looks like it's gonna be a hit

JeffB2002

Nedver win any of these things, but I hope this time is a charm.

imboguss

It would be cool to win one before I buy one!

stormwatcher

This thing is beautiful - nice keyboard - great color definition - and fast. I have been aching to win a contest - please pick me...

cbombaz

I can`t wait, let me win please!!!

epalmatier

The tour is the Blackberry Verizon should have had a year ago in response to the Bold. I can't wait to have my hands on one!

tfabits

I wanted to officially drop my name in the hat for the free BlackBerry Tour. With all the civil and political unrest in the world (Afghanistan, North Korea, record unemployment, Jon and Kate), at least this contest offers a glimmer of hope that all will be resolved once the Tour is in my possession.

BlackBerry has outdone themselves with this jewel. I have tried many, many other devices and carriers....hands down BB kills them all.

How big will the Tour be? I predict that future archeologists will unconver our world and most the rim-horned glasses wearing guy from Verizon will be viewed as a god....

This is a really great contest. Whoever the lucky winners are...get bent!!

Oops....I just "twittered" in my pants....

eriet30

Ooooo this is one i really would enjoy winning common crack give me some luv

mAk0

After weathering many Storms since it's inception, I would gladly take a Tour.

mzjackie

Wow! I would love to win this! Could you pull my name, please?

Ronindan

I do hope that I win the Tour, my girlfriend has been looking at my storm way tooo much. She likes to look at it, talk at it and click on it's screen. I am getting jealous that my storm is paying more attention to her than to me. So to get even, I need to get the tour.

I do hope CrackBerry can help with my complicated relationship.

Thanks.

will_iaint

ive been waiting to a blackberry until this one came out. I couldve gotten the Storm, but im not a fan of all touch screen (especially after my 6th Voyager). I would SO love this phone (without having to pay almost $500; since im not eligible for an upgrade just yet)

Hyperplex

are probably about as high as winning the lottery, but that isn't going to stop me from going for a ticket. Here's to good fortune and a new phone.

jsl28

I want a Tour! Pick me!!

pVs

Cant wait to get this phone :P... time to rid of 8130 and bring in 9630 :)

S11208

The fact this this blackberry is a world-phone and has a 3.2MP Camera, SprintTV ect is the wining point for this device.

lrdmora

I'm getting one either a free one, or I'm paying for it! Does anyone know if the Sprint version has wifi?

linuxdaemon

I am ok w/ the Storm I have...But I wouldn't turn down a Tour.

redberry711

Ok, I've posted a comment, now gimme a phone ... please!!!

Curis

Would be a nice change from the Storm.

byfthalone

It would be most humbling to be chosen as the recipient of such an extrodinary piece of technology from the most prestigious site Crackberry.

hepaidmydebt

I love my Storm, especially having switched from Palm/Windows, but I have to admit I would like to have a better device for everyday use. (I miss having a "real" qwerty!) I would love to see what a real Blackberry device feels like and have a reason to brag about being a part of the Crackberry Nation!

smoke and love

crack, crack.. huh?!? where?!? turn me into a true fiend... give me more.... please sir i'd like some more.... :-)

srouhani

its mine....the best phone ever made!

thirtyfourdays

dudeee the tour? sick contest.

and what i really love about the blackberry tour? that its not this stupid storm thats in my pocket and breaking my heart daily. had the pearl <3 had the curve <3 returned it cause the storm seemed cool. great choice till it started having a mind of its own, generally i appreciate a partner thats open minded and has great ideas, not when its my cell phone playing tricks with my mind. i feel like im in a blackberry nightmare.

so yes, i love the tour before using it, because its not whats in my pocket.

codemaker

Finally, something that I really want to win :)!

Merrell

im special, like the tour

r1ckynutz

this be the time i win??????

:D

dreesern

I am not a BB user, but have decided to get one when the Tour comes out...would love to win one. Have loved reading all the info about BB on your site.

wsm23

I need one of these, time to sale the storm.....LOL

shaneyfelt

Here I sit, not one time have I scored on winnning one thing, but I delight in this chance. And why shouldn't I? The Tour is the answer to my needs on a day to day basis. On Alltel my Curve has proved to top at 300 kbits and that is tops. Nope they can't explain it and can't fix it either and new ones won't get the job done. Now they want us to switch to VZ in a month and all our phones must be replaced - the silly chip thing.

So here I sit, in need. In substantial need actually as there clearly is going to be a run on the bank on July 13.

I can't tell you how bad I need this!

david.morton

Oh please oh please oh please!!!! :)

Malachi.2.15

Time to replace my 8830!!!

Roaming_Gnome

For once in my life, it would be nice to win something other than just be nominated.

rgorzkajr

The tour would be a great way to get my wife into a blackberry without having to buy a phone out of contract. I may even give her my storm use the tour is one nice phone.

macmints06

I love the tour's slim profile and 3.2 MP Camera. This phone is gonna fly off the racks

parroman

What are you waiting for..send it already!!!....The spacing of the keys are great!!

Crackberrykills

Umm, one Tour please, thanks.

TheHaiRazor

OOOOh I can't wait until this come out!

sangalfie

OOOooooo just this one time...so I can give away my Storm for good!! And yes, it was my bday and I wasn't able to get anything for myself... =(

evelins

I'm a blackberry addict and i'd love to have this phonee

jay_man33

Time to make the boss jealous...great timing!

lilsaph

What a great contest! Sign me up. The Tour is amazing!

I can't wait for the camera. Wifi will be nice since I don't have that atm.

RileyFreeman

As a CDMA user I love that it will finally bring access to 4.6 apps. Theres a lot of themes and apps I notice are not available for older models. I love the tour because with it comes the ability to upgrade to the new blackberry messenger once its released. I love the tour's colour (the curve's silver was boring and telus did not launch the black curve). The new screens on blackberry are gorgeous. The added ram will help. One of the biggest thorns in my side is the fact that anything over 4gb on ur memory card slows down the curve. As someone who is a windows mobile guy this is a big pain in the ass. I have a 8gb card for the last 7 months in my curve that is useless because if i go over 4gb it slows down my phone. This new phone with its new O.S. fixes my problem.

Finally as the person who leaked the ridiculous price of this blackberry for telus it would be awesome to get it for free :)

yacoby54

Come to daddy you naughty little 9630!

johnnyprz

Got a Storm as my first Blackberry after using a Treo for 4 years. Got to say i love it but i miss the keyboard. Here is hoping i am the lucky one.

The three greatest features for me are world phone capabilities, a useable camera, and the slim design. I just bought the Bold and wish I had waited

godofdeath

I want thissssss soooooooo bad, you guys rock

jmu10s4

Please me. I need a new phone and have had a palm treo 700wx for almost 3 years ready to throw it out the window. I've been following crackberry before the storm was released.

vbv

CigsMartini

I can hardly wait until the Tour is released. I am looking forward to getting back to a hardware keyboard. My Storm is ok but I miss the keyboard. The Tour looks damn sexy.

bcoates

This is the perfect smartphone to replace my stolen Storm that Bell won't replace! I loved my old 8830, and this is basically the 8830 on the ARod treatment!

poohmichelle

prowler9

I cant want to see this in person...

Wish I had an upgrade to use to get it ;)

dendj55

I love the blackberry tour because it is the most powerful CDMA phone available on the market.

rbix

Finally. Verizon has a real next-gen blackberry alternative to the Storm. While I like the Storm, I'm not sure I would have picked it had anything like the Tour been available. I really miss having a real keyboard and, if what the reviews say are true, I don't mind giving up some screen real estate as long as it is nice and crisp.

I can't wait to try this phone out. I've been following your info on this phone from the very beginning and am so excited to see it in person. Might be a great upgrade from the storm?

And I LOOOOOoooOOOVE the Tour's new keyboard. I haven't gotten a chance to play with it myself yet but after playing with the keyboards that this one resembles, and seeing countless pictures, dreaming of the day where I no longer have to use a touchscreen virtual keyboard.... I NEEEED to win this amazing BlackBerry Tour :) I LOVE CRACKBERRY.com!!!!

biggierob

I need the Tour. It has all the multimedia functionality of the storm with a keyboard. What more can you ask for.

jeck77

I'd like to BOLDly take a TOUR through the STORMy weather of PEARLS, and hopefully not FLIP out when I twist and CURVE through the JAVELIN of stars, and watch as they form a GEMINI in the nightly sky.

I'll take a Telus one please

I bought a Storm in February but I really wish I had waited for the Tour. I would love to win this contest because it's going to be ages and ages until I can get an upgrade discount from Verizon.

The Tour looks like a real piece of quality hardware. Choose me!

There are so many things that I love about the BlackBerry Tour. I currently have the Storm which is my 1st BlackBerry and while I love the BlackBerry experience I have grown to dislike the Storm. I am looking forward to having a keyboard, as well as a quick and responsive phone. From the reviews that I have read and the videos I have watched this phone looks and sounds exactly like the phone I have been looking for. This phone has made me a complete CrackBerry addict. I can't wait to have the 256MB of memory as well as the High-resolution Display that is Simply Brilliant. Launch day can't come soon enough!

thanks CB for all the great things they do!!! your rock!!

mrdink

I want one bad! Looks awesome and I miss my real keyboard.

wctransp

The Blackberry is the kind of phone I have been waiting for. I currently own the 8830 World Edition from Verizon and not to say bad things about that phone, but lets just say I have my share of problems. I would love this phone because it would eliminate the memory issue I have had on the 8830, I would love this phone because as a driver who has needed a camera on my phone when I have either had accidents and or other events. Well we all know the 8830 doesn't have one. In addition I think I would sport the phone in fashion and style.

Lord knows I have never won anything in my life, but the fact that I have won something so important to so many, I am honored to except this phone on behalf of all the Blackberry Fans! I thank you and I will make you proud...

mremy01

Need to upgrade out of this borrowed 8330.

mrblondeau

Looks really sexy mmmm if i had this i would look really sexy

Just the name Tour entices me. I can say I'm going on "Tour" or I might say "I'm touring".

I love my storm but I was looking forward more towards the 9630 then the storm 2

Outrigger

I knew this contest was going to be up and running soon. I love me some crackberry!!!! TOUR that is!

obhwang

I have had several smart phones in the past. Each time I thought that this is the one. Until the Storm came out. It lives up to its name. The more I use it, the more I dislike it. Especially when Blackberry is coming out with newer and better phones. I was on vacation in Las Vegas when Crackberry had posted that the Blackberry Tour was now available on the Verizon network, my carrier. I drove to the local Verizon store to check it out. And man! It is a site to see. Its like looking at a brand new BMW 700 series car in a showroom. First impressions tell a lot. Just the look of its sleekness. The black color and the contour of the Tour. I had the opportunity to try out the display model. I absolutely love the touch pad, even more than the ball. Its almost like a mouse pad. The display screen is amazing and it comes with all the basic applications that you need. The camera works great and takes pictures much quicker than the Storm. I almost bought 1 but I am still under contract for another 10 months. Its like being sentenced to a 10 month jail sentence. I dont just like it because its new to the market. I like it because it absolutely looks spectacular. Trying it out the for 10 minutes that I did was like taking a test drive in a BMW. Well, now its back to terrible weather, and my thunder (Blackberry) Storm. I will say that as great as the tour looks and feels, it still lacks WiFi, but that is totally acceptable.

Thanks, Crackberry for being there....

Man - I am seriously loving this opportunity.

That has to be the best part of the Tour that it is exclusively a CDMA phone. GSM is always getting love while we North Americans have to always take leftovers or wait for re-makes. Good job RIM and thanks Crackberry for the great coverage!

good to know that tour offers no camera version, so some professional can bring it with them all the time.

churchill6969

my wife loves her bold but she has very small hands, she wont switch phones because shes in love with the bold keybord!(who isn't???)
i know with this bb she would get the size better suited for her without having to sacrifice the keyboard she knows and loves! and with our wedding anniversary around the corner this would be the perfect gtift :)
please pick me! we have rogers but ive kept my telus account going since the storm i got in january

jdisme1

You have no idea how much I would love to have this phone! I dont have much money now because I am going to college in the fall, so I cant buy a Tour right out. Please pick me CrackBerry!

I need a new blackberry please.

Ever since I decided to get a BlackBerry, I have used this site for everything that I wanted to know. There is a tremendous amount of info available to an individual, if you are just willing to read. I started with a BB Storm, and quickly decided it was not for me. I sent it back and have been anxiously waiting for the Tour release. I am here every day to see if I can learn anything new, and I have never been disappointed. THANK YOU CrackBerry!!!!!!!

warhed230

I had an omnia & I hated it. Got an 8830 & my upgrade isn't until december!!! Too long of a wait! Tuh-tuh-tour please!
