Contest: Win a BlackBerry Tour 9630 from!



You know you're using your Blackberry way to much when:

10. you purchase a new skin for your BB every 2nd week
9. your 'i love blackberry' app constantly freezes
8. you have forwarded your phone homeline to your BB
7. you don't know what day it is unless you check your BB
6. your BB gets more attention than your spouse/mate
5. you only watch movies on your BB instead of using the DVD player
4. your BB gets so hot from the usage - u can cook an egg on it
3. you use the 'CoinToss' app on your BB to make decision(i won't even mention the 'Sexy Dice' app)
2. you talk about your BB like its a real person
1. you are using two batteries a day for your BB

The Tour looks to be a really solid device (which goes without saying)! This appears to be a step in the right direction for RIM. I cannot wait to see what future BB's the boys at RIM will come up with!

I never, EVER win anything... this would be a nice change :)

The BlackBerry Tour is just...pure AWESOME. Please let me win one. Either Bell or Telus is fine, I'm with Bell but my contract is up sooo either or.

Thanks CrackBerry, you RULE!!!!

PS. In my BBY Mobile conference two weeks ago we had a presentation from BlackBerry and they said they love you guys! I really don't NEED the Tour, but I really, really want this phone!! I am still a rookie when it comes to BlackBerries. But over the past year, since I've purchased my first BlackBerry, I have become so engulfed in its remarkable capabilities. I have always been extremely serious about my electronics and have gone from cell phone to cell phone. But, only with the BlackBerry can I truly say I have found EVERYTHING I NEED IN A PHONE!! The developers at RIM have truly discovered what a consumer wants in a Smartphone. The Tour is the next best thing and come July, there will be no other mobile device that will come anywhere close to it!! I CAN'T WAIT!!

Need new phone and this one sure fits with its
super features and being that my current carrier is

I think I'm going to like the fact that the screen resolution is going to be a lot brighter and sharper!

Love the Storm, so I am sure that I would love the Tour. Even if I don't love the phone(highly unlikely), ya got to love

I'm looking forward to this phone for my wife. I am currently a Storm user and don't have that many hang-ups about it. OK, it gets quirky every now and then, but I haven't had a phone that didn't. Looking to get this phone for my wife to begin her foray into the Blackberry world.

I've dropped my curve more times than I can remember. I could definitely use a chrome-rimmed phone, even if it is really just plastic..

yeah right i couldn't win cold if you was giving one away and i was the only person entered.. oh well such is life

I would love this device as it has superior pocketability compared to my bold. im willing to sacrifice for a smaller screen. Thank You Crackberry!!!!

i have a verizon blackberry pearl and i have been waiting so long to find the perfect blackberry 4 me and thats the tour . i drop my phone too much to get the storm and i want something a little better than the curve , so please help me win the tour

I would give my left leg for this phone. I really want a physical keyboard but cannot afford to spend full retail for a new blackberry :(

crackberry 4 life

So, for years I've been trying to convince my mom she needs a BB - what else am I supposed to say when she says she wants a phone with a full keyboard that can receive emails? She is on a VZW family plan and keeps saying things like "I just need to go look at them." Why? There is no reason. She thinks the Pearl is too small and she doesn't like the Storm's touchscreen. The answer is obvious. She NEEDS this phone!

Looking to upgrade my current phone ... the tour would be perfect ... a free tour would be even better!

I love my Curve, but I'm ready for the Tour! Please pick me...pretty please with sugar on top??

After finding out Verizon extended my contract for 2 years without me authorizing such and the 4 hours I spent dealing with them yesterday I believe I am in need of a present. Thanks.

It would be so cool to win a BlackBerry! I work in the cell phone industry and love BlackBerrys!! Please allow me to win. Thanks!


Tour me up, Tour Baybe Tooooooouur!Tour me up, Tour Baybe Tooooooouur!Tour me up, Tour Baybe Tooooooouur!

hehe I'd make a Website and Paste Tour all over it and Sent it to all the search engines I could find!!!!!! for a Free Tour

and believe me I can do it!


I am thinking of switching from my Storm to the Tour. I miss my keypad. Anyone consider this an upgrade, because it feels like one to me.

I have been a storm user since the day it released. I was the first one at my local verizon store and the first person to snag a storm. I love my storm and i have went through many upgrades to make it stable. The only reason i want a Tour is because of the keyboard. I will have this phone somehow.

the blackberry tour is the next best thing since jeans with pockets, the internet, slice bread and (wink lol)

but for real the tour looks like the cream the crop and its about time cdma carriers got a new phone we can call our own its been long over due

Give me the free BB wife is a PITA and complains about what a waste of money it is since I work infront of the computer all day and don't need mobile access to the internet and email. I disagree and want to rub it in her face...please pick me!!

I have a storm now. Once os 5.0 come around, will it still make sense to drop the storm for a tour?

I have a storm and am pretty happy with it. Recently I am happy to say I made my wife a BB convert and got her a Curve 8330 when her contract came up. I heard rumors of a Tour, but I couldn't talk her into waiting if I couldn't give her a hard date. Now she has the Curve for another two years. It's not so bad now, but it will be next year. I'd love to win this phone and be able to give it to her so she can become even more excited about becoming a crackberry addict with this awesome phone!

I am going to trick this baby out when I get it. Crackberry app after crackberry app! This is going to be the coolest crackberry I can showcase to all my friends. Either after i win this or sell a kidney to get it!

id talk about how unlucky i am but i just won the mega millions....wait no...that was a lie....and the screen on my curve works perfectly....also a lie

Plain and simple,

what I love about the upcoming BB Tour:

-the significant increase in memory
-the full keyboard and its design
- the size of the device is definitely not too bulky and not too slim
-Blackberry's rule, PERIOD!
-the increased memory will allow me to download even more apps from Blackberry App World
-it would provide me a very much needed upgrade from my BB Pearl (Sprint)

Overall it's a very slick and beautiful phone. I will be able to read my blogs daily via Viigo a lot faster with a newer model!

Thanks Team,


Winning the Tour would minimize my lust for the iPhone and keep me on Verizon where I need to be. Help me out! :)


It would make my year to win the BB 9630 Tour. I've been a Crackberry addict for over 4 years, and have gone from the original BIG Blue, to the 9703e, to the 8800, to now having a 8330. I love my BB, and the NEW Tour looks awsome.

I had the Storm since November, but recently switched back to a standard old flip phone (non-smartphone) I got my storm wet and it never worked the same since then.

I would love the Tour but don't have upgrade capabilities til November!

I want one :)!!!!!! I love my Pearl but I would really love my Tour. I'd also let CB design my tour. example, decide what applications i put on it. pick a colorware color once they began doing tours. I would also give a review from an "average everyday" user.

Waiting for more reviews before upgrading after the Storm debacle. Winning one will be even better. Good luck to everyone.

Ever since I had a chance to mess around with the Bold on AT&T, I couldn't wait for a device like that on Verizon. Can't wait till next week.

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 am newly Self Employed, soon to be an overnight success after 20 years. I will need a phone that can do all it can. I would love to use business apps, personal apps and the Orb app. I've had it for a few years and nothing able to use it on. Being self employed is like being a starving artist at PLEASE pick me to win a Blacberry Tour. Thanks, Betty

I know its the same but is there any particular reason why no sites have done a Sprint PCS version review?

The Tour looks to be simply the best rounded Blackberry to date. It takes a little bit of everything from the Bold, Curve and Storm whether it be screen, keyboard, case styling, etc. I have been waiting for a new Blackberry and opted for the Storm as the button on the Curve was too small for my fingers and it was becoming obsolete. I was so close to switching back to AT&T for the Bold and paying the ETF (and making my wife switch even though she hates AT&T's service) but opted to stick with the bug filled Storm in hopes of Big Red and RIM releasing a new BB. Luckily I did. The Tour is perfect and exactly what I was looking for (wife wants one now too!). But comes at a bad time when I need to pay a $30,000 wedding and saving up for a house.

Winning a Tour will come in handy. Instead of spending money towards the Tour, it can go towards bills.

I have the Curve, but room in my heart for so much more;
Oh pick me, pick me, pick me for a Blackberry Tour.
Oh buddies, oh Crackberry friends, do not tarry;
Should you choose me, I’d be so very merry. ☺

I am the sole provider for my wife and two small boys and cannot afford a new Tour as I am not eligible for a new upgrade for another year and half. After telling my 5 year old I might have to sell his 2 year old brother on e-bay, he ratted me out to his mother. Next thing I know I have my whole family at my house for an intervention. They basically told me that I have to go into Blackberry rehab right away. I however told them about your contest and a compromise was reached. I told them if I win the Tour my craving will be satisfied and all will be well. If not.....

(the above story is completely fictitious but I hope it shows how badly I would love a new Tour. Thank you for your consideration).

I neeeed this Blackberry it'll definitely help out with my everyday life on the go. Its awesome the fact tht it has a physical keyboard and will help me whenever in the street and trying to either pound out a quick email or send a quick txt. Plus i do also miss having that trackball @ my disposal while searching the web, using the menu or scrolling down through any of apps. Plzzzzz CRACKBERRY hook me up with a tour it'd help me big time and plus out of the contests ive entered this would finally be my first one that I win and it'd be the best win i couldve asked for. Thx alot.

This is just great.
Giving away the sexiest phone that was ever made, made by the sexiest company, by the sexiest site, on the sexiest thread.
I was aways torn between the curve's amazing looks (and its curves..), and bold's top of the line specifications. This phone is a result from an amazing genius, either I win it or not, I give props for this godly invention, to combine the two pros into one device.
I have never won (I reallyyy wanted the free blackberry case..), but you never know, lightening may strike upon you when you least expect it.

Good luck everyone! (Including me)

I cannot wait for this phone to be released! I would love to win one because otherwise I will be paying full retail for it. Pick me crackberry!

The Tour is intrinsically awesome. Therefore I don't need to tell you why I want it. I just do. Please. Thanks.

This will be my first BlackBerry. I've been using a Windows Mobile device for years and hate it. Looking forward to Sunday!

This would be for my beautiful Girlfriend, she recently lost her icrap, i mean iphone, so I buy her a bb8330 but Im sure she will love this one better!

Count me in. I have a bold and a storm but I really want this phone just to have the smaller form factor. Plus I do not want to wait till August 12 for this device(yes I am with Sprint for work). Please Please Please hook me up.

We finally seem to be catching up to the "cool" networks. They have all had the latest and greatest. Now we have the three latest and greatest in one

Wonder how well this will do on a global standpoint? Will it be the ultimate global phone? Well lemme win one and I will personally travel to find out...

I am a Storm owner and love the phone, I am trying to convince my wife to get her first smartphone and the Tour would be a great phone to start her experience with! Great camera features, global capabilities, email, the list goes on and on. She likes the look of the Storm but hates the touch feature. Tour provides her all the features of the Storm with the QWERTY keyboard features. Please pick me!!! If we don’t win this, we have to wait until November to get her a Blackberry!!!!

My baby's photo just won the Grand Prize and the photo is placed on the magazine cover. Maybe I am lucky enough to win again!! Go! Go! Go!

While I love my Storm that I got on release date, I am ready to leave the touch screen world and get back to the functionality that allowed me to fall in love with Blackberries in the first place. What better phone to transition to other than the Storm? NONE!

I actually do win things, so the Tour can join the ranks of my 7 inch b & w TV, my blue ribbon for costume contest and then there are the smaller prizes I've won. So, just go ahead and send it to me and do away with all the formalities.

ive had my storm since November 21st (the day it released) and i cant stand it anymore. i need this phone to help me get away from that piece of crap excuse for a phone come on crackberry help me out!!!!

I am a Sprint customer and I'd like a Verizon Tour so I can give the other CDMA carrier a shot. I'd be more than happy to write a lengthy review comparing each carriers Tour performance.

God bless.

Blackberry Tour, like the phone but the name is something that needs to be worked on. Should I win I will call mine the Blackberry Edward

Just maybe, I'll get lucky enough to win this one. I need a new phone i'm tired of the storm it just didn't live up to my expectations hopefully the Tour will.

I could probably win the lottery before winning the Tour. But how about if I win a video of me dancing in the street with my kilt on to the song of your liking! Plus since I'm not the primary on my family plan I would have to pay full price. Please please kilted pleasure please let me win! Thanks crackberry!!!!!

B/c I am so in love with my blackberry 8330 but am always looking for an upgrade. Plus I am broke and can't afford one! lol

My world edition just fell in the water yesterday. And I was duped by a VZW specialist into using my upgrade for someone else on the acct. :( I'm not eligible to get another phone for like 6 more months. This would be amazing! Yeah!

My wife's world edition is crapping out. Luckily I was able to save it thanks to CB! Also gave her a little upgrade, but she is in need of a new one! I guess i will be a good husband and give her this one if i win. I am in luv with my storm, so it wouldn't be too hard! :)

I'm new into this BlackBerry thing and winning this would be uber-sweet!! Everyone is saying how this Tour is going to be the sweetest BB yet so I am hoping to win! Thanks for the chance.

gotta love the immaculate screen and processing power of the new blackberrys. Where the cusrve is awesome to say the least, the tour will be that much better.

I have been wanting a Blackberry for the LONGEST time, but been waiting and waiting for the right device to come out. Since my purse (along with my phone) was stolen recently, this is the perfect excuse for me to upgrade to my dream phone! FINALLY, Verizon is coming out with a Blackberry that will top all the others in the market.

I always play, but I never win. BUMMER!!!!!!!!!!!

What I love about the TOUR you ask?
Well that is easy its a BLACKBERRY.

So far I love everything about the Blackberry Tour expect for one thing, the name. Should I win I will call mine the Blackberry Edward 9630

I would love to win a blackberry tour, I've been with my curve for a while and its time for a change.

Can't wait for this to drop! Haven't been this excited about something since I originally found crackberry. Help me out since my upgrade is so far away :)

Unlike most Storm owners I haven't complained... It serves it purpose well but I need a real keyboard again! Or, if you don't feel bad for me, my wife has the original Pearl and really needs to upgrade and could use a special 10th anniversary gift ;)

Of course, I am the 18,486 post so my chances of winning SUCK! :(

more likely to get hit by lightning than winning BUT, as the ads say, 'you gotta be in it to win it'.
