The bb tour not only looks sweet but has all the things a young professional as myself is looking for to keep my life sane and communicated with the world...

not to mention the bb tour would be my edward (twilight saga) and w/o it i would go insane so please please pass the bb tour to me :-) it will surely bring a new moon my way :-)

What is there to say. The phone is sexy as hell, blackberry's rock, RIM kicks A!#. Wow would this phone look great sitting in my hand :)Common. Oh yeh big up to crackberry 2. Much love.

What's NOT to love about the Tour?!?! I mean seriously, loads of ram (for a bb), large screen, latest OS, physical keyboard, all in a nice form factor. I would soooo love to win this! Pretty please?!?! :)

ive been stuck with this dinosaur for what it seems forever now! please upgrade me. its a matter of life or death!

I would love a new Blackberry Tour. I'm still using a Blackberry 8703E, which I love. But I think it's time to upgrade. I'll cross my fingers. Good luck

I can't wait for July 12. This will be my first smartphone, and my first Blackberry. I am really excited about getting my hands on one. I have been researching which smartphone to get for about the past month. I decided on the Tour based on the great insight and information that I got from Crackberry. Thanks.

What do I love most about the Tour? To be honest I can't decide between the revolutionary holographic touchscreen or the time travel app. Ooh! Or the psychic bluetooth!

Looking forward to finally owning a blackberry. been waiting for Verizon to get something close to the bold.

I'm currently in love with my 8330, but the grass is always greener, right? I love that it is NOT touch screen, still has the real keyboard. I'm most excited about the better camera.

I love that the only way Ill be able to get one is to win one from the generous crackberry website and this contest since Im already a verizon customer.

Hey, so I was thinking; what is the meaning of life? Well, I've come with that life is what you hold in your hands and I plan to hold this free Tour in my hands.......

The upcoming Tour seems to be the best BlackBerry yet! I can't wait to get my hands on one (hopefully free)!

How timely, I'm waiting for the release so my company can hook me up. I would be the hero if you hooked me up.

what's so great about the tour is that the camera and screen are so much clearer than the current models. Also i love how they used the buttons of that similar to the bold, whats not to love about it!

The reason I love the Tour is because it has pretty much all the same features as the Storm, but it has an actual keyboard. Nothing against the touchscreen, but IMHO a keyboard is needed for my Crackberry.

I would love to have the BlackBerry Tour! I see it as Bold 2. It's everything the bold has and much more. I'm from Canada, would be nice to have this!

Good luck to all of you!

Well I didn't see me first post so I'm submitting a second one just to make sure I'm entered.

I hate the CDN Price of this thing...but love everything else.

I can't wait to get my hands on the new BlackBerry Tour. I have been staying updated routinely throughout the past 4 months or so. Very exciting!

I love the everything about the TOUR! I have been following the beast for a while now. It is gonna be one quick sleek blackberry! I love my storm, but the quickness of this Goliath is gonna rock my world!

The struggle continues for BlackBerry with the Tour. I will be taking my BlackBerry Tour in the #vzw flavor if you don't mind. Sprint left a bad taste in my mouth and what need do I have for Bell and/or Altell lol? I am already patting myself on the back or on the hip I should say marveling at my new shiny device. Woohoo lets go, I'm locked in.......

Love the screen and Keyboard - those are the keys to improving the user experience, everything else is icing.

It would make an excellent partner in crime to my storm
Seriously how Boss would I look with two BBs on my belt?!?

It's great that RIM provides a full spectrum of solutions like touch screen vs physical keyboard, small vs. large, etc. Much better than the one product fits all approach.

I've bought every new blackberry model that was released for verizon since the 7250. It'd be nice to save a few hundred this time around. Especially after being burned by the Storm.

This looks like a good place to start posting. The wife loves this site and keeps talking about the Tour, I'm up for one too.

The tour is fascinating to me and just the fact that it is a new model blackberry is even more interesting. I would love to be the proud new owner of one of theese so pleez pick mr

for the last little while i have been wanting to get the wife a blackberry but with a lack of money its been a little hard, so that's why i need to win this

and it would be a great way to make a new blackberry addict out of someone by giving them this sweet little devise

thanks in advance guys

I NEED A NEW BLACKBERRY BADLY. I'VE BEEN STRUGGLING WITH THE 8703e FOREVER NOW. CANT DO A TOUCH SCREEN AND I ALWAYS WANTED THE 8830 WHEN IT CAME OUT BUT THE DARN THING HAD NO CAMERA ON IT. ONCE I GOT THE 8703e I HAVENT LOOKED BACK. BLACKBERRY FOR ME FROM NOW ON GOING FORWARD. HELP ME. PICK ME ME ME LOL

One winner? Jesus you guys must have fun with this. What do I love about the Blackberry Tour? The fact that Sprint now has a phone that will actually have service and that roaming triangle and the X I get next to my service bar will hopefully disappear, which as you know is one of Sprint's specialties, like you know, say going to a Nascar race sponsored by Sprint but yet my 8330 is roaming, what fuckin gives with that

A family two houses down from me just won 9 car's yesterday from a local dealership. I just want to win 1 tour.

The Storms novelty has worn off. The highlight of my day was checking Crackberry every hour of every day looking for the next OS leak. Now that the leaks are not coming, life is boring. I think its time to put that excitement back in my life and I think the Tour will do that!!!

My wife and I are looking to switch over to Verizon later this month, and she loves QWERTY Blackberry devices. I showed her the Blackberry Tour unboxing video, and she absolute love the new Blackberry Tour as she wants this phone.

I am sick of my storm, its terrible and its just not lived up to the hype. Sadly, I don't think anyone would disagree, looking forward to the newest Blackberry to reconfirm my love of the blackberry!

Hello, I would love to win one of these. I currently have a storm, which I really like, but it has it's issues. What I love most about the Storm is how it seems they took a bit of each of the latest models and rolled it in to one little package. It looks sleek, and the screen looks awesome! In short, I would be proud to be carrying around such a great looking phone.

thank you,
Cap

Great looking device, what more can you want?? I have to win this for my wife so she will leave my Storm alone!!

I've been dying to get a Tour because I deal with T-Mobile's horrible service (in my area) just to use this 8900!!! Now I can have an awesome BB with my favorite svc provider!!!! Yay!!!!!!

I'm very excited about my 1st Blackberry! Super keyboard, an email jauggernaut, super graphics, Facebook for BB, shopping on Crackberry (Innocase 360), downloading applications, themes, etc. The list goes on and on. I'm going to know that phone up one side and down the other! Bring it on, Verizon!

Much thanks...
Vballer

I have been shopping around for the perfect blackberry and this one is it. With its impressive looks and junk in the trunk, this would be one great blackberry to get to know.

I do not have Verizon, Sprint, or any other CDMA carrier so I do not need the BlackBerry Tour. However, I would like to win the runner up prize.

Switched service, and first time blackberry user for over ten days (Curve 8310). ADDICTED! What was I thining before? The Tour looks and sounds amazing, like it would burn my finger tips off in a GOOD way!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi!

I've been using my Telus Curve 8330 for far too long and would love a chance to get a Tour! This device looks sweet and I'm sure I'll love having the upgrade!

Thanks !

Would definitely be the greatest thing since sliced STORM for me. I love my storm, but I want a device that actually WORKS for me. Please, please, please, pick me!!! :)

I won't regret it!

I have no idea what I like about the Tour as I haven't seen one in real life. But I've watched the reviews and since I refuse to have any other carrier besides VZ my choices are limited. I have a Storm now that I like a lot and have had zero issues with, but I do kind of miss real tactile keys. As an Industrial Design student I have always admired RIM's ability to make the inherently complex look both usable and modern without being too cocky. They are very attune to their customer base and would never sacrifice an ounce of usability in favor of minimalism. And isn't that what a smartphone is for? It is good to see a bit of progress in the UI though. So this broke-ass college student would love to win the new hotness, thank you in advance if you see fit to hook it up.

I like the fact that the Tour has nearly the power of the Bold, but it's in a compact and sleek package that seems to fit both men and women's hands.

Epic Contest once again! I sure hope they still continue to make apps for my 8330 cuz I don't feel like upgrading! But a free upgrade it always welcome!

My favorite thing about the tour is the large amount of app mem compared to my storm. That and the actual keyboard make it a winner in my opinion. I'm very tired of my slow and laggy storm!

because I've been slowly dying on this Razr2 for almost 2 years waiting for the next BB on sprint. Its about time!

I jumped on the Storm right when it was released and I have been kicking myself ever since. It could be the worst device ever released that wasn't a beta product, not just worst BB. I am long time BB user and hate to admit how bad the Storm is. I want to get the Tour so bad (and go back to a normal QWERTY key pad) but I'm worried it will be buggy and suck just like the Storm. HOWEVER, if I win this contest and don't have to pay for the Tour, then I won't feel as bad if the device blows like the Storm. At least I didn't pay for it. So, PLEASE let me win so I can ditch my Storm (you're welcome to have it in exchange for the Tour)!

The 8830WE was my first phone. The only drawback was that it didn't have a camera. The Tour would be a great addition to the family.

While I am currently a Storm user, the Tour really interests me. I think having the physical keyboard is good. I'm thinking of getting one and passing my Storm over to my wife, as she is currently lusting adter mine.

How can you go wrong with this model. Global capitable, 3G, REV A tethering, 2GB mem card pre-installed, OVERALL will be the number one blackbery until they top it. I WANT THIS I have wated over a year for this to HIT!!! BRING IT TO ME!!!!!

JULY 12th peoples. VERIZON WIRELESS REPS ARE AWARE AND WILL ANSWER ALL YOUR QUESTIONS. GO HIT THEM UP!!

Could this be the final chance i've been waiting for to finally win something? ooooo i can feel it!

Currently with Sprint, was going to switch to Verizon when they offered pre-ordering, now I just don't know!

I would love to have a tour. I am sick of my pearl im on my 3rd one and still have a year left on my contract. so I would like to win a tour

I have the curve, but reading about the Tour I'm getting excited about the new device! Unfortunately I am not able to get an upgrade anytime soon. I hope I win!

And once again... only great contests from CB! Holla! I would love to win a Tour. (Well, I would love to be able to buy one, but I just spent my tech toy money on a new netbook.) If I had a Tour, then I would have a backup BB--that would be awesome!

Well, not really NEED one, but I'm quite disappointed that I am on my 3rd Storm. Never owned ANY phone that I had to replace. EVER. Except the one I dropped in the toilet, but that's hardly the phone's fault.

Im entering for my brother who is 2 years older than i am and a Junior at New Mexico Tech studying to be a Materials Engineer. He is in desperate need of a BlackBerry device but just cant muster up the cash to buy one at full retail (school fee's and all) if anyone deserves it, a college student does! When i showed him the 9630 he fell in love with it! He is sick and tired of his crumby old VX8800 (venus)

Please crackberry let him win!

Regards,
Collin James

...is a mix between the Bold and Curve 8900. The design is just awesome. Would love to win one for the wife. She is due fo a Sprint upgrade.

From a very basic standpoint, the tour is a good looking and very reliable (smart)phone. Having been a dumb phone user for the past eight or so years, I feel as though I can handle all of the possibilities and functions possible with a blackberry, especially a tour. RIM and it's Blackberry brand have continued to rise in popularity among both business and consumers alike as they have made push e-mail, any sorts of messaging and personal organization basically effortless. I didn't mean to turn this into a formal paragraph but the Tour is the "cream of the crop" with respect to blackberries and phones in general.

Love my Blackberry! Want to get my wife in on the fun, I know she'll love it too. Always spreading the Good Word.

Kevin your crackberry highness! Please let me smoke from the crackberry pipe and send me a blackberry tour!! Thank you in advance for considering me for this worthy contest !!!

Epic Contest once again! I sure hope they still continue to make apps for my 8330 cuz I don't feel like upgrading! But a free upgrade it always welcome!

What do I love about the Tour other than the fact that it's the best smart phone for Verizon? It's NOT an LG Voyager! Damn I hate my phone!

I've been waiting so long for this phone to come out. The only thing that would make the tour (finally) being released would be winning one!

When I first decided to move from a Windows Mobile (Motorola Q) to a Blackberry, I really wanted a Bold. However, I am in a coverage area where VZW is the only carrier that makes sense. As a result, I jumped in and got a Storm and like it for the most part.

However the Tour looks more along the lines of what I wanted to start with - but I am only 6 months into a 2 year contract. So, it looks like the only way I'll be getting a Tour (not gonna pay $500 for a device) is if Crackberry gives me one.

Pick me! Pick me!

man, i would LOVE one of these! I'm kinda sick of the storm, so having a slick new phone with an actual keyboard would be DOPE!

I love the blackberry tour for a few reasons, I love the email capabilitys for work, its like my curve yet sleeker faster and battery lasts longer! For me to win this phone would be absolutely amazing, im a crackberry addict. Thanks for taking the time to read my comment

Derek Lucas.

I will miss the touch screen, but after reading the early reviews this sounds like the perfect blackberry. Maybe storm 2 will perfect the touch screen when it comes out, but I can wait.

Because I am not new every two for another year, I need a free tour!!!!

Reasons to upgrade from the 8330 for me;
better keyboard
better camera
faster processor
better screen
and it's badass!

I've had an 8830 on Verizon and it has served me well from Tampa to Tanzania. But after 2 years I'm ready for the Tour! Bring it on.

I lost my job back in October, and for the last few months I've been squirreling away what I can, $5 here, $10 there, so that I can pick something up to replace my rapidly aging Pearl.

Sure, it might not be the most inspirational story, but I could use some good luck. I left my first job out of college to help my best friend and his family. He ended up dying of cancer on my birthday. My second job left me underpaid and overworked, and eventually on the street.'

Now, I'm back at home, and dying to get out. Consider this a step toward personal freedom.

Okay, I'll try to make this a short reasoning for why I want the Blackberry tour. For one, I have to be able to keep connected to my family and friends apparently. But more importanly, my blackberry is my life source. I keep in contact with all of the women I talk to, my family, and my contacts at work through this gadget. Facebook, myspace, emails, quickpull, twitter, you name it, I use the app on this little thing. Right now I have the blackberry storm, which some people may think is a downgrade by going over to the Tour, but in my persoinal opinion, I need this thing. The touch screen world is cool, but the Tour just looks so slick and sexy. Like I can pull it out and it looks like a blackberry is supposed to. With my storm, 9 times out of 10, people don't even recognize it as a blackberry. Then WHEWWWWW. If I hear one more comment about the blackberry being the Iphone. I DISPISE the notion. *I pity the fool*. But basically that is my reasoning for wanting it. I would jump through hoops and buy it myself, but if I can get it through a CONTEST, it'd be well worth it.

Bought the 8330, never knew about the atour until I started reading these forums, Now I wish I had waited. This is the only way I would be able to get the Tour, win one, or wait 2 yrs :( .

I want to win this because I am not up for an upgrade until March. The only way to satisfy my addiction is to have the newest and greatest BlackBerry available. I hope I win.

This would be my first Blackberry. I've used them extensively in the stores and decided to wait to get the Tour instead of going with the Curve, since I'm on Verizon I didn't have too many options! Good luck everyone

Either if I win this contest or I have to guy buy it, I am getting the Tour as soon as its available. The thing looks awesome!

I'm looking forward to one as an upgrade to my 8830 now that my company has finally relaxed their restrictions on camera phones.

I have had 12 BOLDS I know that is hard to believe but I currently have 2, one is a backup with only a number and no internet.

I run a celebrity website and receive thousands of emails a day, have ubertwitter running and just make phone calls. The BOLD seems to freeze or re-set or drop calls or actually freeze at a screen and shimmy and shake (doing a dance).

I would love the opportunity to win and use the 9630

and will write it up! and you guys as well.
