Sounds like Blackberry has another winner with the Tour. Can't wait to see how popular it is. Would like to win one!!

omg I would love to have a bbtour!! :))I have a storm but would love to try the tour!!! its supposed to beeh the best!! :))))))

I never win anything either, so who knows!! All I have to say is I'm new to Blackberry with an 8130 Pearl and loving it. Now I'm hooked and want more (thanks in part to crackberry.)

As far as the 9630, it looks SMOOTH! It also helps to have Al Green the work in the video! Great touch. Great video & pics!

and I haven't struck any wins here with all the contests that have run that I entered..This would be such a great thing to win since I can't afford to pay retail for a new device while being locked into a 2 year contract with vzw..So, pick me and put a huge smile on my face! Thanks

I love the Blackberry Tour cause I'll treat it like a ROCK STAR!!! We'll head out on world tour and every city we stop in the girls will drool over my shiny new BB. I'll feel like a rock star going from city to city showing off my new Tour's incredible speed and beautiful looks. Kev!!! MY BAGS ARE PACKED!!!! SEND ME OFF ON MY WORLD TOUR!!!!

I have had my Storm since July 1 and though it's only been one week, I so far do not care for it on many levels! It is my first BlackBerry and I expected better, despite the reviews I read, you know? It also does not get as good reception anywhere my LG VX8700 did.

I'll give this phone 'til around July 20th or so, but I'm pretty sure I will be back at my local Verizon store to switch out to a BB w/a real keyboard, or some other smartphone that will be better for me.

Thanks, CrackBerry.com, for being here and having the wonderful forums to visit and find advice & info!!

ok so i had a storm love it still do but mom just bought a curve been messing with hers and i love the trackball and keyboard i want the tour so bad but i'm locked into two year contract and don't wanna pay full please let me win this
thanks

It's definitely Tour time - and past time for me to move on from my Treo 700P. Of course, if CB wants to do the upgrade for me, who am I to argue?

i can not wait for this to come out!!!! its going to be so amazing to have a cool(er) next gen blackberry agin. suck it iphone

I've always been a fan of BlackBerry for years and recently have been using the BB 8830 World Edition for my international development work with children around the world specialy in Africa. It works great and use it alot for word etc although I always complained for no camera and not enough on-board memory because my BB freezes because I have too much news shortcuts like CNN, Viigo etc..

Although, with the BB Tour i'm amazed with it's 256 MB of on-board memory, the 3.2 MP camera, enhanced multimedia features and fully-functional World Phone that supports global roaming on 3G networks reliability. The Talk Time at 5 hours and standby Time at 14 days,

IT'S AWESOME, IMPRESSIVE AND I WILL USE IT DAILY IF I GET A TOUR :)

I HOPE I WIN ONE :)

I know the Tour does not have WiFi, but I am certain that on the Verizon network, I will be ok. I have never owned a Blackberry before, I have been with my Treo 700P and I am seriously considering making the switch to the Tour. I hope that if I do, I am not disappointed.

Really can't wait to have one of these! Can't wait to replace my BlackBerry 8130 Pearl. Its long past due for a new device. Thanks CrackBerry!

As a dedicated user of the Curve 8330, I can imagine that the Tour 9630 is everything I have come to love and more. Reading through the reviews I can tell that this phone is what us CDMA users have been waiting for. It has the best of all kind of blackberry worlds...looks, functionality, speed, etc. I agree with the reviewers this just might be the best BlackBerry EVER!!

Crackberry, thanks for keeping me updated on the Niagara 9630 since day one! It would be awesome if I won a free Tour, but if not, Happy July 12th to everyone else out there!

Can't wait for this Berry to come out Sunday! More memory, faster processor & bigger screen...What is not to like! By the way, more memory means more Crackberry APPS!

WOOF!

I think i would deserve a new black berry tour jus becuz i've done mane thing in my life for my handicaped father, i busted my ass makin sure i did everything 4 my family. i wish i could buy the tour ASAP but money is tight right now help pay my father's rent and paying mine and my father's cell & home bills. i would switch to either sprint or ATT&T because anything is better than T-Mobile's SERVICE!!!!!!

PLEASE PICK ME KEVIN AS THE QUALIFYING CANDIDATE FOR THE AWESOME NEW TOUR

The blackberry tour might just be the best phone thats going to hit verizon in a long time. I want one of these to replace my terrible enV2.

... would be a $0.00 upgrade! Currently, I'm a client with Telus, but I actually signed on through the original Clearnet "Friends & Family Plan" pre-release of PCS in 1997. I have an excellent voice plan that I have retained despite all attempts to "upgrade" me, and added an unlimited e-mail/web plan last summer when I bought the Pearl 8130. Failing eyesight now means that I have had to crank up the font size to be able to read messages and the limited screen size is somewhat tiresome. The keypad on the 8330 is too tight for my thumbs, but the Bold-like version on the 9630 seems much better from the reviews. Telus Client Retention reps are unable (unwilling?) to discuss any special dispensation until after the official launch, and after a couple of recent "toys" I've acquired, I would have a very difficult time getting the no contract cost past my wife. But she couldn't argue with $0.00, could she?

I'm a newbie to both Crackberry.com & BlackBerry. I had a Palm Centro for the last couple of years and fell in love with the smartphones. When I got ready to trade in my centro, I was dangerously close to getting the Pre. I changed my mind at the last minute and got the BB Curve 8330. Best thing I ever did! I don't even how I lived without my BB. I am truly hooked & will never be without a BlackBerry device again. The Tour, from what I have read, seems like an awesome device. Can't wait to get my hands on one!

i miss having buttons! winning the tour is a long shot but if anything i hope i win the crackberry.com credit!!!

Going to get my first Blackberry whether I win it here or have to earn it for myself... Unbelievable timing that the best Blackberry comes out the day of my Verizon Upgrade

i want a tour cuz the blackberry storm lags to much after you click on stuff. ps. telus i hate you but you gave me a good deal

I have a storm and was dumb enough to buy into a 3 year contract with verizon. the storm is okay, but the terrible OS just doesnt quite cut it. When I look at RIM as a company i expect a flawless phone to be produced. That's what the Tour is supposed to be and that is why I NEED one

After spending the last 5-6 yrs upgrading phones probably every yr at least I have met my match with my curve 8330...it's the absolute best for all that I wanted. And now the Tour is quickly approaching and it's better than the best--I WANT ONE--SIGN ME UP!!!

I can't wait to have a phone with a physical keyboard again. I hope I win! (It would be the first time I won anything in my life, but HEY someones gotta win!)

What i like about the tour is very sleek and not to big or to small just perfect the screen looks amazing almost HD quality and whats internal even better very powerful phone.i just can't wait any longer i need the TOUR 9630...

I don't know enough on the GSM tech to know bands and what not. Say I go to Europe (Spain, Portugal, etc.) and South America (Ecuador). Will I be able to pop in a native SIM and be able to use the phone. While away I really don't care if I have data but the phone use would be great. Anyone have any ideas or experience with the prior world phone? Thanks,

I need this real bad. Still rocking out with my BB Storm with cracked screen just because it still works lol.

thinking this would be a great replacement for my 8830 as an existing Verizon customer a pre-order of the tour i am told is out of the question so I would like to win one. just cant afford one with the economy the way it is right now, so please pick me.

I tour should would be nicer than my pearl.

Full keyboard, better battery life, nicer screen display, world capability, beautiful design, what is there not to like?

Holy cow...i can't believe how many posts there are on this!

Looking forward to a Tour to replace my Curve. New OS, faster, prettier...yeah...let me be the one in 19,123 people to win!

as My girl lives in the us and me and in Holland we depend a lot on our berries for communication. This would not be for me but for her so she has a superhot phone and can make jokes at her fiancee's curve 8310.

Oh and I never win anything :-(

The Pearl has been good and got me more than hooked, but it's time for something with a little more to it.

please pick me, the only thing i've ever won was a barq's rootbeer backpack in the 4th grade. i love the tour, the sleek design and the qwerty keyboard what's not to like.

I have been waiting forever for this phone! I am psyched for hi-res screen, new software, good camera, more memory/speed, and improved web browser!!! Hopefully it has fewer glitches than my 8330...

I'm twenty years old & I've been using a blackberry since I was sixteen years old. While all my peers were into sidekicks I was always into blackberries. I currently own a blackberry storm & even though I love it so much, I'm in college majoring in criminal justice & its difficult to text on the touch screen. With school fees I wouldn't be able to purchase the Tour. Plus having the Storm you need to have it for 2 years to get an upgrade with a slightly decent price. Being able to win the Tour would be the best 21st birthday present & associates de

winning is nice, would like to see what this baby could do! currently have a STORM and love it, very fun for the geek in me

I have been a frequent visitor of this site for quite some time and I don't even own a Blackberry. I have been waiting and waiting for a perfect Blackberry device and I feel that the Tour is definitely the Blackberry for me. So please pick me because I am ready to join the Blackberry world and experience this sexy beast!

I have been following, waiting, anxiously anticipating the release of the BB Tour for many months now - I constantly checked the internet for any new information on the Blackberry Niagara turned Tour. After hearing the unconfirmed release date get pushed further and further back, I finally couldn't wait any longer and traded in my old Verizon phone and settled for the Blackberry Curve in April. Definitely worth the switch because blackberrys are AMAZING, but nothing can compare to the sleek design and of the Tour. No one can get my hands off my phone, and I constantly check up on crackberry on Viigo way too many times a day because I love learning about new technology and blackberrys. But when I heard the date for the Tour was finally confirmed for the 12th, it was the same day I was hit with an enormous bill. Because of the economy, I could not find a job for the summer, so I am interning in Manhattan and with the commute, all my money is spent on food, trains, and paying off this bill. Because I just used my upgrade with Verizon, the only way I would be able to have the Tour is to buy it at full retail price - almost $500!!! There is no way I can afford that.

It absolutely breaks my heart that when the Tour is finally released, I do not have enough to pay for it - after obsessing over its release for months. If it was released in the much speculated month of May, I was ready to be the first to pre-order it, but now, bad luck and bad timing ruin that possibility.

Please help turn my luck around!!!

- heartbroken crackberry fanatic

I believe that anybody who types a lot to win the tour is a complete tool. Just enter and whoever wins, wins. Peace

Go Lions (Detroit)

I never win so I would be sooo thrilled if I was picked to win this. Would love to win the new tour, my curve is getting kinda worn I use it so much! My niece calls it my electronic lease cause I am so attached to it lmao

I forgot to say that I should win for all the blackberrys I sell telling everyone how much I love mine, just sold 3 yesterday alone LOL. I tell everyone that blackberrys are the best and convince them to buy them cause I do truely love mine!

not eligible for upgrade till 2011. Need a better keyboard than my 8330. Love the sex appeal. Ah, I prolly wont win anyways.

The best part about the Tour is that it's not my LG Voyager. Not due for an upgrade until 7/30, so winning one now would be freaking sweet.

You should make it so people can add poll to there thread post in the forms. Then when people have a post about what browser others like you can put a poll up for people to see and it will be easyer to see what the majority of people like. you should also put polls on your blog. Thanks for reading it you got to it.

I love the new style of the tour and how its a faster better version of the curve. I cant wait.. I need one.

A new Blackberry would definitely help me with my job hunt! The Tour looks great - but the full HTML browser is what does it for me. Would love to win!

Well this is a shot in the dark, but I really would like to win this since I do not have enough money to buy it on my own because all my money is in savings for my upcoming wedding! (stupid wedding)

I like the Tour because it hopefully won't have the same laggy screen as the storm. The device looks amazing and I hope I win :)

---dcross9818 with Sprint!

i think the blackberry tour is a nice new addition to the blackberry line up if only it had wifi i cant wait to get my hands on one

Ever since I bought my Curve 8330 (my first Blackberry), I have not been able to stop messing with it! The Tour has the slim design, flat keyboard that I am sure everyone is looking for. Fast and the ability to travel? Sounds like a winner to me!

I can't wait for the release of this bb. I've never won anything before and it just seems great. I would love to have it! <3 crackberry

I have wanted a phone like this to come out on verizon ever since the storm was launched. Loved the features, hated the touch screen.

I love the blackberry phone. This is my first, the Curve 8330. I still have 15 months til I get the upgrade through Verizon. I am a little discouraged seeing all these new phones coming out, I would LOVE to win this one. My fingers are crossed.
Pick me
Pick me
Pick me

This curve has got to go. I skipped the storm for this phone, which seems like a highly intelligent move.

I have been a crackberry user since November and the release of the storm. I would love to have a physical keyboard and more space for the awesome BB apps.

Increased memory and speed will be a welcome enhancement, especially among those of us that tend to use many apps. I cannot wait for this one to come out.

Plus, if I win the contest, I won't have to tell my company or my wife why I really need this device. Ok, I probably don't need it. Want it - that's another matter entirely.

As a business professional, I cannot tell you how embarrassing it is to have my Storm fail on a daily basis. To not have my data and information by my side any time I need to access it is an absolute nightmare and extremely worrisome. I have come to rely on CrackBerry when it comes to figuring out these daily problems on my Storm, but I would like the constant errors to stop! I cannot not tell you how much it would mean to me to be able to have a reliable, high speed, powerful BlackBerry like the Tour. The Tour is exactly what today’s modern business professional, like myself, need! PLEASE HELP ME OUT CRACKBERRY!!!

I recently got my first BB and now my husband wants one so bad!!! The BB is so beyond any other out there. Thanks for the site, you make it so easy to keep me in cool stuff for my BB.

As my wife and I are expecting twins this fall, we have had to tighten our belts. How great would it be to have the first pics of our kids to be taken with a free Blackberry Tour and then posted on a crackberry.com forum?

Sounds like a good idea to me. I want into the world of BlackBerry! Make it my first smart phone. Badly needed.
