Contest: Win a BlackBerry Tour 9630 from!



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

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!

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....

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.


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)

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.

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

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

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

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!

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.

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.

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!

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.

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

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.

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 :)

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

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.

Like the looks of this one. I am looking forward to viewing a screen without having to look around the dust particles.

The new Tour looks great. Sleek. Love the keyboard. Would love to get one today to replace my Storm. My piglike fingers would welcome the change.

I am a brand new Blackberry user and I absolutly love it!!! I dont know how I can live without it. I currently have the Curve to get my feet wet and I am looking forward to the Tour.

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.

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!

I would love to get this phone since it has the physical features of the bold and the body of the 8900... It is a dream phone, well at least my dream phone *thumbs up*

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 just signed up to I have been using the site for a while for all things BB related. Fantastic site, keep up the good work.

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?

Woohoo. This would be awesome to win!!

I'm stuck with my stupid Pearl and would love a BB with a full keyboard!!

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!!!!

Thanks Crackberry for always giving us the oppurtunity to be among the first in the know ! Btw I think the Tour is sexii !


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

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'm completely stoked about this phone, but i'm not even a year into my contract, and there's no way in hell i could afford the $500 to buy it outright. winning one would make one hell of a bday present

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!

..And all the contest that they have. Man hopefully I win one so I can buy one and get the other for my gf.

i told my girl that CB is giving away a free bb tour and she said your not gonna win it!! well i think i am gonna win it!!!!

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

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...

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.

Huge props to Crackberry and if I can only get a message from CB telling me I have won this thing...c'mon baby!!


Would love to use the latest blackberry! I really am interested in the real keyboard in the latest phone.

Good luck to me!

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!

I recently switched from a Curve to a Pre and I am suffering through crackberry withdrawl. I would def pick the crackberry back up if it was a free Tour!!

why would I love the Tour ?
well first : I love blackberry
Second: I adore blackberry
and third : it is a brand new phone were talking about

Because this device looks like the hottest thing that is going to be release
Evr'yone will get one for sure now that's its available on a lot ov companys

Im blackberry addict. Love the sleek design, its awesome. need it to be a part of life. i cant live without blackberry 9630. :)

wow, the oppurtunity to win a phone thats priced over $500 or $150 for three runners up just for writting a comment. all i can say is "wow". these people must be on CRACK. CRACKberry that is. lol

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

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!

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!!!!!!!

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!

It looks awesome! I can't wait to get it; my existing Blackberry is on it's last leg. It would be even more awesome if I can win one for free!!!!! Blackberry's are the BOMB!!!!!!

Awesome looking phone- and the features, fuh-ged-about-it!
With a 3.2 MP camera, 3G network and 480 x 360 pixel screen who could ask for anything more?

Nice job RIM

Been loving my Curve, and pretty sure I'll love the Tour too. Better camera, world phone, faster over all.

Here's to hoping I win ;D


I want to the Tour for many reasons:

It is on Verizon
I can get my work e-mail on it
Great screen
Excellent Keyboard
Excellent Multi Media features!
Stable OS
Love the Trackball
Can handle MicroSD cards up to 32GB
My current phone Touch Pro sucks because Windows Mobile 6.1 is so unstable
Great camera
Looks cool
