would do anything to swap my lovely storm for a more beautiful blackberry tour....... craving that qwerty keyboard!


I would love a new bb tour!


I am a BB World user and am anxious to get the Tour. I had been patiently waiting for the new, revamped Storm 2 but that doesn't look like it is coming any time soon. Crackberry is my go to site for all updates and purchases. Thanks for keeping us current


I can haz Tour?! ha ha


I'd luv to Win, even though the Tour doesn't have WiFi! :(


If I were to upgrade from my pearl it would be to this or the storm


i love my curve 8330 but am ready for a nice upgrade... \m/\m/


My upgrade is not available until February 2010, but I'm really, really, really close to biting the bullet and paying full retail to get a new TOUR!!! BUT... if the powers that be can help me out, maybe I can win a brand new Tour!!! So, with that being said.... Pick Me! Pick Me! Pick Me!


I want a tour!!!!!!!!! pronto...time to get rid of this horrible storm!!!!


I am currently a Sprint customer, but if I win the Tour, I would consider switching....that or post it on EBay...make some $$$$.


Been stuck with several Storms that don't hold up, almost quit Verizon and went to an iPhone, but I can't stand AT&T. A dependable phone would be great but I can't do it through VZW yet due to the contract, a Tour sure would be nice :)maybe it's time for the law of abundance to kick in.


Tour is looking good! I just wish I'd waited a bit longer when I bought my Storm -- now with the Storm 2 and the Tour coming out, I think I'll need to look into an early upgrade...


If you're giving away a FREE BB tour, I'd like to be the recipient!


Can't wait to get my hands on this device


This phone just looks awesome. Mind, the runners up prizes look good too!!!


I would like to have a tour please. Thank you!


Wow, the tour looks pretty rad. I'm really mad that I bought the Pearl 8130 from Verizon last summer as my first Blackberry right before they dropped the price! Doh!!


i don't even have a smartphone share the love


really really love my storm but miss my old treo full keyboard if i win ill give the runner up my storm for a tour for verizon no questions asked its in perfect shape


I absolutely love the layout of this device. Sleek lines and curves and the colors are awesome too. Not to mention its all in a tight little package. I would love the opportunity to take this abroad and show it off.


Please let me win a Blackberry Tour!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ;-)


My first experience with a Blackberry was with the Storm. It was enough to get me hooked forever, but I wanna see how it would feel to have a REAL DEAL Blackberry. I love everything about the Tour. If I were a cell phone...I would definitely hit on it.


Sounds really nice, hope I win!!!!


I would really love to win this!


No soy el dueño de este burro, lo rente
(I don't own that donkey, it's a rental.)
Thats why I need a Tour so I can buy the donkey.


The new tour is awesome and I would really love to get my hands on one especially if I could win it.

I can't wait till it comes out! This would be my first blackberry! I am really excited bout getting it!


Can't wait...looks WAY better than the Storm....


Come on, baby!

Daddy needs a new Blackberry!



Wishing i Win! Crossing Fingers!


Im the winner....

I'll take one for Verizon, Thank you.


my brother just showed me this site -- it's fricken sweet!! grats to whoever wins the phone; can't wait to get mine =D


That'd be a sweet upgrade from my 8310!


everyday it gets closer! I just wish i wasnt under contract so I could actually buy one without spending $500 :/


It has a keyboard and trackball...two things I wish I had on my Storm!


I can't wait to win this one. Ok, so I'm more likely to have to go to Verizon and buy it, but I can dream, can't I?


Oh good God do I want a Tour and I really can't wait until 2010 to get one. Please let me win!


but this would be great!


I am still in the ancient times of cell phones use and am in depesperate need of getting into the blackberry age.


I wouldn't mind having a tour. I love the full screen of my storm, but we all know it's problems :/


It sure would be Tour-reffic if I won this because I don't have money to pay rent but I do have money to have an unlimited data plan. How 'bout those priorities! Only the Crackberry Nation could understand.


My birthday is the 15th, this would make a great present!


This will be my first blackberry smartphone! can't wait, i love the 3G and qwerty keyboard!


Well, I really really would love to finally have a full keyboard, stable OS, nice big display, and faster processor... This would hold me over wonderfully until the Onyx is released for GSM carriers. I know Rogers wont carry it (the tour) but I would so unlock it so I can use it.

*Fingers Crossed*


I love the look and the just all around it just is the next step in Blackberry Greatness. The 3G Network ain't so bad either.


I've had a Curve 8330 on Verizon since November. I got it after trying the Storm in the store and NOT liking it. I just don't know if I should upgrade just for the improved screen, faster processor and memory increase.

Also, will this thing run my third party apps like Beyond 160 and my HP calculator emulator on OS 4.7? Will memory leak still be an issue on this?

I'm on a family plan and have a couple of open upgrades so I can easily do it. But a small part of me wants to wait for the Storm 2.


I would be lovin a new Tour... What one feature can I pick that I love? I think the best one is the whole package. I can't think of anything I don't like.


I personally have had a Blackberry Curve and have been waiting forever for another phone on Alltel worthy of living up to the BB name. The Tour sounds great and I know it is being released for Alltel before the transition to Verizon takes place. I would love to win this phone so I could for once settle the battle within my own head, Storm, or QWERTY physical keys. Can't wait to win!!!


i want to win this tour really really bad. I hope i win


Need the worldphone, got to get off this old curve, scared of the storm. Tour to the rescue?


Sexy blackberries ftw :) Bring daddy home a tour!


i would like the TOUR!!!!


I own a 8830 and ready for my new toy. WOW, I am number 18809...


Please pick me so I don't have to fight with Big Red to do an early upgrade.


Im getting ready to be legal!!!! The Tour from Verizon would be a GREAT birthday present! ;)


Can't be worse than my Storm; all in...........


If I win, I'll take my Tour on tour and report back while on the road.



Another device to keep me tied to all the things I loathe being tied to. :-)


Sprint for the win, if I get chosen. It would be crazy if I got picked.


If u see this comment, you have to pick me! NO CHEATING!!!!!!!!!!!!


I really like the Profiles menu - much more useful!


I can't wait to lay hands on one!


Let me be a winner! I've been a loser all my life! look at me! Winner


It's worth a try! I want a Tour sooooo bad. I hate waiting! :( boss thinks I'm crazy for wanting this device and doesn't understand why anyone would purchase a blackberry hahaha


1st post, hope I win...............


While I can say that for the most part have not had any major problems with my storm. Can't wait for a chance to pick up the tour. Keeping my fingers crossed for an early upgrade notice sometime soon.


The Tour is finally hitting the sweet spot as a global phone for Sprint and Verizon. Not as bulky as the 8830 and with faster processor. Can't wait to get my hand on one.


I currently have a curve 8330 that is literally falling apart.

the 'a' button doesnt even work anymore. pleaseeee send a tour my way!

it would mean so much to me!

thanks for the opportunity!


....I'm so excited about the Tour. I think I've talked my friends to death about how I can't wait to get my hands on one! The Pearl is just not doing it for me anymore. Is it bad that many days I spend more time search for more news on the Tour than working.....?


I can't wait for this blackberry to come out. It seems like the best blackberry to date, yet it still needs wi-fi!!


this phone is awesome because it has a lot of the features of the Storm, but with a physical qwerty keyboard!


Love all the info coming from Crackberry about the new Tour!!!


Havent one anything yet, maybe this is my lucky contest!!!!!





I wouldn't like a Tour....I'd LOVE a brand new TOUR. WHoo Hoo


I must say the more I see of the Tour the more I like it.


Show me the money...

I want me a pretty Tour to show off. ;)


i just wish sprint could get a pre-order going...


My 8830 is on its way out.. buttons don't work, it sometimes restarts itself, I need a new one.. Maybe a Tour :)


July 10th is my birthday and a Tour would be the perfect gift! Please pick me (fingers crossed)!


Man everytime I read more about this phone I want it. Well heres hoping!!!


Sure would be nice since my wife put the clamps on me buying the Tour right now.... I guess with a baby on the way and me going to school with a limited income really does make sense. I say booo to those that make sense... :)


Good luck everyone. Ha whoever wins will be really lucky this is a nice addition to the BB Family!


Oh I'd love a new tour. I've beat my curve up way too much! :-)


man i wish i would win this so I could give my current BB to my son and be the best Mom EVER!!


I have been suffering with my storm for too long! free me and let me get that old blackberry feeling again.


I want a golden ticket!


I couldn't get tickets to Michael Jackson's memorial yesterday. Maybe I will have better luck at


I have been looking forward to the BB Tour coming out! I have a hand-me-down BB 8330 from my husband but now it's "me" time to get the latest and greatest BB, the Tour!!


Love my Berry, but want a new one with more stuff to use. Please pick me, please,please


I am so amped about the tour coming out. I am new to the whole Blackberry scene and have been waiting for this Blackberry since March. I was 2 seconds away from buying the Storm because I have had about 7 BAD LG VOYAGERs (what can I say, I love punishment), and when I went to go get, the sales rep's own Storm froze up during a demo. Way to pitch a phone...already with Tech support. Needless to say, I told him that I am waiting to go on the Tour and he is now waiting for it just like me. And I feel if your going to start of with a Blackberry, why not be THE MOST electrifying berry in all of electronics today. IF you SMELLLLLLLLLLLALALALALALALA WHAT THE TOUR...IS...COOKING?


I really need this phone.


I really want the tour but am very interested in getting the pre! gimme gimme GIMME!!


Oh how I love Crackberry
With all their contests to be had
How I need a new Blackberry
Losing would make me quite sad
Let me tell you why I need the Tour
Im sure others do too
But this would be just the cure
Or else I will just have to make-do
I dont want to pay full retail price
Since my contract end is 7 months away
But with this new little device
My bank account wont have to go astray
The phone sometimes fails to find a data signal
Many times causing calls to go to voicemail
How annoying it is for full strength to become null
Blowing it up will only send me to jail
It's also having sofware issues
But I wont even get started on those
I'll just end up here with a box of tissues
I know the Tour won't have any of these woes
My phone can't take a single picture
A feature I would love to sport
People think I'm immature
When I draw them a picture of my new Ford Escort
So cameras do come in handy
The Tour's 3.2MP is still a step up
A feature I find dandy
I'm ready for my close-up!
My track ball isn't working well
Though I know that's an easy fix
But it still is giving me hell
My current BB isn't getting me chicks
But I hope the new Tour may help
It's a sexy phone
It may make the ladies yelp
I may not even have to wear any cologne
But that's beside the point
I dont think a smartphone will help me with this
I know a new Tour will not disappoint
Thank you Crackberry for offering me some bliss!


I'd love to win this tour, so my fiance doesn't have to buy me an Tour for my birthday!


Oh I'd love a new tour. I've beat my curve up way too much! :-)


Oh I'd love a new tour. I've beat my curve up way too much! :-)


winner winner chicken dinner!

otherwise i'm going to have to wait to upgrade until!


Gota get it. My 8830 is OLD (Sprint)


I've been reading Crackberry all day and would love to win a phone. Thanks for the opportunity.


I'm excited for this phone!


I can't wait to see the specs, whether it will be as Bold like for VZW as I have been reading!


I love it and want it :)


would love to win a new one of these!! nonetheless good luck everyone!!


I hope I'm a future winner of a BB Tour

Joel Martin

Hey I want one!!! plz ;-D


Well guess what? The Tour will be here on Sunday July 12, and I can't wait.

How is that?


What an awesome contest


The thing i like most about the tour is that it is not a pearl
and sure type how can it anticipate what im spelling when I cant even spell it?


...because it's not the storm. Go me!! let's win!!


So here's my comment. Let me get that phone from ya, partna.


i've never won but i'll take anything to upgrade from the storm


Please let me be the winner


I would love a free tour :)


I can't wait to get a new Tour. Finally some Sprint love!


Will this comment even be seen? =(

My blackberry pearl is my life, having a BB Tour would put me in heaven.


Can't wait for the Tour to be released!


Can't win unless I comment, no harm in trying!


Please let me win something.


The best things in life are FREE!!!



wow the tour is a sleek and sophisticated phone, best part of it is ive been without a phone for a week waiting for this phone to come out. each day feels like a year.


CrackBerry...thank you very much for the opportunity to win this BlackBerry.


1)It's a Blackberry, who wouldn't want it?
2)Looks hotter than the BB Bold, with a sexy keyboard
3)It looks better and it looks like it performs better than my Storm.


I've had a storm since day 1, on my second one now, and while I love it, it would be interesting to see if the screen size/keyboard on the tour combination would be as nice as the big screen on the storm.... I'm sure typing on it would be better, but not so sure if the screen size loss is worth it..


currently rocking the 8900 but would looooooove this 3g masterpiece!!! while i know my luck is noever really equated with what could be called "good" i figured id give this a shot :) thanks guys! peace,love,and crackberry...


would love to have one of these, love my curve but already had 3 of them hope this is much more stable.!

Dark Cobra

I've never won anything before and don't expect to win now. However, I will take a chance and see what happens. Allow me to offer congrats now to all who do win. You are very lucky!


Thank you very much for selecting me as your verizon BB Tour winner! ;)


I am kind of new to blackberry, I've only had one for about a year, but I refuse to go back to anything else, this would be great to win.


Torn between the Curve and the Tour... this might help!


i sure wish i could win it :) i need to upgrade my old 8300 series curve.


"Gimme that Verizon Tour, Gimme the tour!"


i WANNA win the blackberry tour, then I can give my wife the Curve 8330 I just got and she can learn my love...obsession....for the hehe


I know I will win because Blackberry is the love of my life. I fell inlove with it when I first purchased the Blackberry Pearl. Then moved on to the Curve and now I am currently married to the 8830 World Edition. I am looking to have an Affair with "The TOUR", and possibly fall inlove with it.


if i win i love you longer time than if you dont.


cant wait until sunday. looking forward to typing a bit faster and hopefully this one doesnt need resets daily!


Chances of me winning are slim, but hey, why now give it a chance! Good luck everyone!


haha, so im going to leave another comment cause i really would want this beautiful device, that has the perfect keyboard, the nice black look, the bold look, everything just seems perfect! please let me have a chance to win the blackberry tour :) i would appericate it.
Crackberry is the best!


I would love to have a Telus Tour on no contract !!!


I need to win this phone because I'm SO BROKE and I really want this phone.. Wish me luck!!


I don't have a Blackberry...sad but true - but this win could change all that and bring me into a modern age where tethering your phone doesn't mean it's attached to a can with a string.


I am a Sprint customer using a Windows Mobile (gasp) device and have been eyeing a Curve for several months... I was intrigued by the Pre but everything keeps pulling me back to Blackberry (my Sister-in-law and a few friends are dyed in the wool BB users) The tour IS the device I have decided on.... the Screen Resolution, the size, the OS, the ease of use, etc (the list just goes on and on)... I've been a Crackberry reader for over a year and have learned a lot (even though I didn't have a BB) and helped out my friends and Sister in law from the things I learned at these forums! Keep on trucking Crackberry!


come on bring me the 3g baclberry baby i need it im a crack addict would die if i dont get this one been blackberry user for years !


I love me the Blackberry Tour!! :)


the storm is over bring on the tour

xxDruMMer BoYxx

Man I would love a Tour. Haven't won anything yet, but I'm believing really I will. Thank you Crackberry for this contest!!!


Please pick me. I could really use a BlackBerry Tour


My current phone is dying, battery draining quickly, hope it lasts till Sunday...


First times a charm!

Need to get rid of this Storm!!!



I need one of those on Verizon

ms charli#CB

I have just traded my storm in for my 6th storm(which has been nothing but a STORM for me) I think I need to take a Tour!!


ahh how i love blackberry. i wouldn't have another phone!! i would love to win the tour and have the new hottness on the streets!! pick me!!


Good Job crackberry, you are always on top of news and info on Blackberrys, and look at you now, giving away a new Tour as soon as it comes out. Bravo. :)


I used to have a Storm and then made the worst mistake I could Have done. I traded it in for the Samsung Omnia. Worst thing I did. I would Love to git this phone.


Id love one of these guys


Could someone please explain to me the need for WIFI? I just dont know why I would need it...


Ooh, ooh pick me pick me!


just maybe I will win something


i want a tour!! cant wait!


So I believe RIM did it right with the size. Being in the middle of the Bold and 8900 I can't wait to get my hands on it. All the review videos I have watched are talking about how great the keyboard is, as for that I am even more excited to get my hands on one. Unless I win my new Tour from Crackberry I will be at Verizon opening hour to get my new one.


I would love to own one of these!


I know my chances are slim.. but you never know! Here's to the lucky person that wins this beautiful phone!


Count me in. I want one.


Another entry. Maybe I'll get lucky this time !


Hope I win! I can't wait to get this BB!


Thought I'd give it a shot. Sounds like this is going to be the ultimate Black Berry and I would like to feel the power of it.


I hope I win a new Blackberry Tour. I'd really like to win. Can you hear me? I'd really like to win.


please let me win!!! I really need to replace my POS palm treo


I wanna win. I wanna win!


I would love to have the Tour! It is a really nice looking Blackberry, although I've never seen a blackberry that didn't look good


verizon+bold+Curve=Tour?! Makes no sense what so ever. But its a tour so its awesome with the cool keyboard,screen and black color which is better than the sliver. (My opinion) And the trackball is black so no dirt is shown. I like it. And i want it....bad!


I would chose tour. You?


I am currently no a Blackberry user but am looking to become one Sunday (hopefully Saturday!!).
The Tour looks awesome and I can't wait to get mine!!


i want it i want it i want it i want it i want it i want it

I love all the great information on the site & cant wait to read the reviews for the new TOUR!


The tour is a mix bewteen curve and bold (like what i said before) which is sweet because of the fact its not touch screen crappy like the Storm. It clicks and isn't like an itouch which i used to own until they charged for OS updates.

(Crazy right?!? but then again what did you expect?)


My curve recently had some issues. I really want this new blackberry.


...I can win? Hmm...the odds do seem slightly better than the lottery...


free tour would be perfect


Looks like it is going to be a great phone


Im trying to win this too!


The tour looks slick and looks so much like the Bold. I even run that particular theme on my curve!


I got the BlackBerry 8330 from verizon and love it. I think the new Tour is even sweeter. Love to get a taste of this one.


PUHLEASE let me win this! Have been dying to get one in my hands.


tour tour tour tour i really want one! i cant upgrade for a year ughhhhhhhh

TXSkeets! :)


I have never won anything. I would love to get the tour!


Yes, of course everyone i feel now has a blackberry. Not only that but i am left wanting one and i am definetly getting the Tour.

Currently I'm a student at the Asper School of Business and planning one of the largest events the school has to offer as well as the largest event of it's kind in Canada, and I FEEL LOST without a blackberry. I vially need to get one for the e-mails, organizerand of course the brick breaker. Not only that, this is the sweetest one to come out to date, and the camera installed in to it is pretty much like the new dig. cameras that were coming out in 2001.

.. i need to have one!


I'm not the type that has to have the newest OR the best, but when the Storm came out, I was more than willing to drop my Curve for it. I know that many people are having problems with the device, but I love this thing like it's one of my children.

That being said, I'm willing to trade in my first born son for the Tour. The phone looks like it's going to be a home run. I have never watched a phone with more interest or anticipation as I have with this one. Again, I'm not looking for the newest and the best.

The lack of the larger screen like my Storm is the only thing that I can see as a negative aspect for this device. I have grown accustomed to the tall/wide screen that comes with my 9530.

I'm sure I can get past that for the sleekness of this phone. The keyboard is a very missed feature, as most people know, and the trackball can easily replace the touchscreen.

I'm eager for the smoothness of the new hardware and the new keyboard layout. Another thing I'm anticipating is the new 5.0 firmware. Of course I'm looking forward to it for my Storm as well, but the combination of the supposidly 'blazing' fast firmware and the new hardware should make this an excellent and competitve phone for the market. A very competitve phone for the business person and the average CrackBerry addict (like me) the same...


but perhaps this time is different. I would very much enjoy a VZW BlackBerry Tour. Yes, indeed.


looks and sounds like a great phone - hope i win it and the $150.00's cool too...

thanks for the chance


Looking forward to this phone. Hope it lives up to the reviews.




I would love to win a blackberry tour, i had the curve and loved it, now i have a storm and i just miss my physical keyboard, I would be so lucky to win one :)


Bold was a bit big for me and curve was just a bit small... TOUR is perfect!


blackberry tour 9630 is AMAZINNN!!! the keyboard is just beautiful.


I need one of these--my Curve is dying!


Taking a shot to get a new phone. The curve 8330 has been good to me but a tour would do me so much better.


A pearl got me into the blackberry world and just isn't enough. Bring on the Tour!


What do I love about the Blackberry Tour? The improved scren resolution, longer battery life, more memory, better camera, better speakerphone, the way it looks and more!!!


Love my phone but wouldn't mind winning something new especially a blackberry!!

Robert Estes

I don't expect to win this but I'll try anyway. I have been on the fence whether or not to get a blackberry. Winning one would obviously make that choice for me!


Was thinking of getting the BlackBerry Odin but since it's being pushed back to September or maybe October I would love to get this!


Full video in the palm of my hand? I'm pumped.
