The Tour is tempting me to make a switch, the speed and app memmory are great!! I look forward to piling on the apps and not worrying about memory! The good things I have heard regarding the camera and video are even better. The keyboard seems perfect and makes typing blazing fast!!!

if i won this i would be so happy. I havent won anything since 2005 when i won an iPod Nano (1st Gen). I want a tour because i like to stay ahead of the trend. But with the economy the way it is; i cant do that anymore. The last phone i got was the voyager; and it has turned me off to touch screens (which is why i would NEVER get a storm). Im just glad i stil have the qwerty option. this phone would mean so much to me. Id be able to sync it with my macbook and essentially have everything on the go. I like to stay connected; and this would help with that on a whole other level. and i so not above begging for this phone. the look of it is absolutely amazing.

Sweet, sweet, sweet Blackberry! I would ditch my Storm if I had the opportunity to show this sweet thing off!

i love the tour because its the newest full keyboard bb that verizon has gotten since the 8800 and it looks amazing

The tour will be my introduction into the bb community. It has everything I'm looking for in a smartphone

As a user of the 8830, this new version CDMA/GSM blackberry's capabilities will be like the difference between a 1983 PC and a quad core duo!

I wouldn't mind having the new BlackBerry Tour for Verizon....

I have the Storm, and it's been good, but it's the Storm...

So, let's give me the new Tour so I don;t have any issues anymore......Please????!!!!

I love my storm but I'm getting really tired of the touch screen, the tour would be the perfect median between the storm and the bold. Happy 4th of July!!! God Bless America

Im still trying to see if I want to get this phone because I have the storm, I love my storm but sometimes I find myself needing a keyboard when I have to type important emails and messages.

Ahh a Tour on the Verizon network would definitely make me happy!! I just checked the pics yesterday on this badboy and it looks amazing!! :]

I AINT WON ANYTHING. I DONT EVEN MIND BEING RUNNER UP DIS TIME. IT WUD MAKE MY DAY, MY BIRTHDAY, CHRISTMAS AND EVEN HANNUKAH

I don't ever seem to win random raffles, so I think I'm due! I wonder if I could find a reason to use both my Storm AND a Tour. Please give me that chance. ;)

-SR-

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Blackberry Tour! Why?...some might ask. Well its because it is definitely extremely sexy, it WAAAAYYY better than the Storm (I've about had it with that phone), it's the first really nice phone Verizon has had in FOREVER, and if the Bold and Curve 8900 were to produce an offspring it would be this phone! Does it really get better than that? I love absolutely everything about it...even the fact that the trackball is black so that it doesn't get dirty and turn nasty colors! The Blackberry Tour is the best phone on the market and I would love nothing more than to win one since every penny I have needs to go to my college education and car funds (on a shop rite salary) :( and i couldn't stand another year with my laggy, die every 4 hours Blackberry Storm! Pick meeeee! I LOVE CRACKBERRY!!!!

I want a tour becasue i am on my 4th storm . i like the phone i hate the phone i like the phone i really hate the phone , please help me end this vicious cycle and give me a free tour so that i might go to bed at night knowing that i will not have to re adjust my paper between the battery and phone so i can use the surepress screen .

Im tired of spending hours a night seearching for the new OS that will be my salvation and end my memory loss.

I've recently made the leap to a Blackberry after a long history of bogged down, locking up, buggy WM phones. First the Moto Q, then the Q9c, then the HTC Touch Pro. I just got the BB Curve 8330 through Sprint and I'm wondering what took me so long to come to my senses. Nevertheless, I am loving my new Blackberry!

I'd absolutely LOVE a free BB Tour! Why??? Because of the keyboard layout and overall appearance of the phone. It's so much more stylish and user friendly. The higher resolution screen, black trackball, more internal memory, and 3.2MP camera are also features that have me wanting it... What else??? Oh yeah, pretty please, with sugar on top. LOL

Thanks!

Booyah!
I need to win this; I plan on buying the Tour as soon as it comes out but I'm going to have to pay full retail. I bought the Storm last November and my upgrade isn't until August '10, and unfortunately I'm not a subscriber to NE2. I missed the trackball.

Been a 8330 Curve owner for a few months and am completely down with the BlackBerry now. No way I could use another phone, but there also aren't many upgrades for my curve. Everything is Storm or Bold focused so apparently I need a new model. I'll be waiting for that Tour. Thanks.

I love the tour because it isn't my curve that has to constantly be connected to a charger because the battery lasts all of 8 seconds.

From the pictures and research I've done, what's not to love?

Sleek design and the pro keyboard are two amazing selling points alone; not to mention new/faster software and its cdma. Can't wait to get my hands on it!

I wanted a bb so bad I bought the storm before I could get the Tour! You know I want it!

I can't decide between the Tour and the Onyx. However, this fantastic contest may just do that for me. So I'm leaving it to the hands of Crackberry to choose my next phone. Thanks !!!

I know Verizon's phones are locked until Verizon provides the code to unlock them, but do most other CDMA carriers (Sprint, Telus, Bell, etc) work the same way with their hybrid phones?

I love the Tour because it will be MY FIRST BLACKBERRY!!! My g/f has the Verizon 8330, and I'm on it more than she is. I was debating joining the dark side (ATT, iPhone) but the Tour/Niagara rumors kept me waiting for months, and now it's finally here!!!!! I'm already addicted, and I having even had my first crackberry yet! w00t!

I am a musician and I travel a lot so I need that blackberry tour ...
to continue my tour like musician but with blackberry :)

thanks!

I went from boost mobile, to sidekicks, to LG phones, to the storm and i LOVED it...for a couple months lol but i couldnt use anything other than a blackberry so i got a curve and it bricked in like a month, then VZW sent me another one...that was broken!!! unresponsive keyboard, the nerve of those people!! and i tried to get a tour outta them but they weren't havin it so they sent me a new curve and that one works fine, but i still NEED the tour lol

Overall the Storm was a dud, but now I get the best of my Curve with the parts of the Storm that weren't turdalicious.

I hope I win...I hope I win...I hope I win...
I hope I win...I hope I win...I hope I win...
I hope I win...I hope I win...I hope I win...
I hope I win...I hope I win...I hope I win...
I hope I win...I hope I win...I hope I win...
I hope I win...I hope I win...I hope I win...
I hope I win...I hope I win...I hope I win...
I hope I win...I hope I win...I hope I win...
I hope I win...I hope I win...I hope I win...
I hope I win...I hope I win...I hope I win...Please!!!

So when the Storm came out it seemed so perfect for me... 4 Storms later lol....I'm hoping for a good change, I'll cross my fingers that this will be it! :D

Wow, so many people wants the Tour! And how would you pick me over everybody else? Maybe some bribe? LOL I wish !! :)

I love these contest just wish i would win something one of these times lol

Thanks Crackberry, your the best

I would love to have a physical keyboard again. I like my Storm, but the keyboard is a little annoying. Gimme a Tour!

... But I got the Storm in Jan, it'll be a while before I can upgrade to one. Winning one would be oh so sweeeeet

After owning the bold, This phone looks amazing, im looking to switch carriers anyway. winning this would not only be awesome, but would also avoid putting a small dent in my pocket, which would be nice with the way this economy is.

Good looks Kevin!

Think I am gonna convert to BB from WM... Question is, Tour or Storm. This contest might solve that problem!

I am excited about getting the new Blackberry 9630 this will be my first Blackberry and my first smart phone. I am 100% sure this is a much better choice then the iPHONE.... I look forward to receiving it.

:) Marko

I'd love to give this to my wife who stays home with our 3 children under 7 (with a 4th on the way). She home schools the older one while caring for the younger ones. I love the Blackberry Tour because it would give her so many ways to stay in touch with the outside world! - Text, email, Facebook, internet, etc. - not to mention the ability to organize and keep up with all the kids appointments!

Running OS 4.7, better then having the theme on my 8330 on VZW. Higher resolution display then my Curve. Three times the ammount of memory. EVDO Revision A. The list goes on an on but what I think has me most excited is that according to RIM's site it's no bigger then my Curve which I always thought was a perfect size.

I've had a blackberry with verizon since the 8830 World Edition, had the curve and have the Storm. Waiting for the tour wasn't easy and even if i don't win i'm gonna buy it retail anyway

This phone rocks and it has been a long wait for Verizon to get it on the market. As much as I love my Curve it was time for an upgrade as well as a new look.
BRING IT ON!

My father lives across the country, and is dying from a terminal disease. If I won the Blackberry Tour, I would give it to him so we can keep in touch during his last days.

Just got a Verizon plan and this would be a great phone to have instead of this Storm (Ugh!) Love that it looks and resembles my Bold that I use for work and love! Plus the physical keypad!! Finally CDMA users getting something similar (maybe even better) than the Blackberry Bold!!

Currently using Verizon service :) Just in case I win! Love ya Crackberry, you guys rock!!

I have heard nothing but positive things about the Tour. Even though I like my Storm, I would definitely give this phone a whirl. I should clearly be the winner! LOL Pick me!

I'll be in LAS VEGAS when the Tour makes it's debut. Hopefully I'll be lucky.

Daddy needs a new Blackberry!

**Thanks for the contest**

Why do I love the Tour 9630... let's see...
CDMA and GSM = perfect
New upgraded OS over Curve = perfect
Small form factor = perfect
Great keyboard = perfect
Brand-spankin new device = priceless...

It's a Blackberry, the most awsome line of phones on the market and the Tour is headlining the show! Please, let me have one!?

I NEED THIS PHONE!!! LOL. The wonderful qwerty keys are calling to me and I have to listen.

I'm a Verizon faithful who is patiently waiting on the opportunity to purchase the Tour. I've been using the 8830 up until about 2 months ago when I baked it (long story). I refused to go buy a replacement knowing the new Blackberry was about to be announced so I had to go back to my 7130e. (Ouch!). Suffice it to say - I'm READY!

Thank You I really look forward each day to coming to your web site. It keeps me updated and informed! Please keep up the good work!

This is an awesome contest!!! Definately a great way to get people amped up for the new BB Tour & Crackberry!!

Thanks Crackberry for making this contest avilable to all of us loyal fans.

Piece!!!

I dont have a blackberry yet but I'm definitely excited to get one in the near future. All of my friends have one and are in love with it :)

Please please please let me win this thing. I am just about fed up with my storm, not that it works that badly but i need speed, reliability, and a regular qwerty keyboard. If i'm going to be clicking I might as well have a regular keyboard. I like the size of the tour, really like the Bold-like keyboard. Please lemme win lol

Blackberry, oh Tour,
I how I yearn for thee
to show off to all my friends
for your beauty to see.

Thy buttons, so clicky,
Each press, they go 'tick ticky',
In quiet movies, and in quiet planes
and even in quiet choo choo trains.
The texting and tying shall never cease
Unless they think its a bomb
and promptly call the police.

Thy casing, so shiny!
A constant gaze to it, my own reflection
well, quite frankly, it would get me all whiny.
A constant stare
into the blank screen quite bare
while in standby mode
with excitement, I'll want to explode.
Hopefully not however, too much in class
because with utmost certaintly
too much distraction wont let me pass.

Thy screen, so bright!
Luminating my soul and life
and while I walk around at night
stubbed toes avoided, it makes a great light.
Less band aids this way,
Less as well many bruises,
Perhaps now with this Tour now
The question of ceases of that of domestic abuses.

Thy camera, so sharp!
in the nosebleeds of an opera
"*snap* oh my I see a harp!"
and at night at my window
peeping across the say
To my discovery, I do so see
That my neighbor happens to just be
a size 32B,
thank you, Tour camera!

Oh Blackberry, oh Tour,
You are my life's cure!
With you at my side,
I can tweet my love worldwide!

Ive had the Storm for a year, and it's great but it definitely isn't snappy enough, and if I don't get my hands on a BlackBerry trackball soon I'm going to lose it. My only chance at getting the Tour would be to sell my Storm so I can afford the retail, but this would be a lot easier, no doubt.

I hope I win. 6 kids, one getting married, one adult child moving back home, one going to college, and triplets in high school learning to drive. I could use a new "toy" for daddy ...

Phone looks good, I have the storm but am getting a bit sick of all the bugs even with the new software. Tired of the daily battery pull. Might have to give this one a try.

Please Lord let me win....I want this phone soooo bad. lol...Yea i know I am calling on the lord on this one.

Fantastic! I would love to upgrade to the Tour! My only gripe is that it does not have wi-fi (Verizon) last I heard.

I don't know much about the Tour yet but I imagine it's better that the Storm that I have right now.

please hook me up with a new tour 9630. my curve 8330 had fallen into the toilet about 2 months ago......and i didnt have insurance. so i got an 8830 off of ebay and my dog knocked over a glass of water on it........i was so depressed i only had it for about 2 weeks........i really just cant take using my old samsung flipshot anymore.....i feel like i have lost my child, please help.

I love the Tour b/c of the form factor of the phone. Looks like it would be very comfortable to hold and type.

I have been researching getting a black berry like crazy, and i seem to have fallin' in love with one named the tour! Such a great mix of the curve 8900 and the bold. i have never had a black berry before and i would love for the tour to be my first!

I have only had a blackberry for about a year now and i'm already a crackberry addict. I can't go more than an 15min without doing something on my wonderful curve. With a faster better phone and a much nicer keyboard my addiction will only rise!!!!

because I want a keyboard to play with. The Storm is great, love it, but want the ability to switch.

I love the new screen resolution as well as the slick look and feel of it. I'm really looking forward to winning this one. Thanks Crackberry!

Hopefully I win this thing, cause im in desperate need of an upgrade! and im just tired of my pearl. I love the Tour, cause its simular to the curve 8900, which felt really good in my hands.

I want the Tour because it essentially has every feature the storm does but the increase in running memory means it wont freeze every 5 minutes. I work for Verizon and this phone is going to rock!

The Tour is so much more powerful than my Curve that it could probably caluclate the odds to win this contest. The first hint? Not good.

But I'll take an entry anyway! Thanks!

I am not sure what kind of comment to leave... Short & sweet, wishing everybody "good luck"? Plaintive, "hoping I win!", clever & pithy sharing a story about how my Blacknerry has "made me a better person"? What shall I do?
Screw it!

Good Luck to all because I hope I win a newer Blackberry so I can become an even beter person!

Thank you for reading.

Well, who wouldnt want the latest and greatest from Blackberry. I love my 8330. I use it for keeping business and personal life in the palm of my hand. It's great, but to have something with more memory, quicker browsing nad a better camera would be a BIG PLUS to my life.

I take pics of my personal training clients and upload them to my client site where I keep all contact info. I do all of this from my phone and its starting to get too big for the 8330, so having the best op system, memory and camera would make my life so much easier.

But then again, who wouldnt want it for many reasons. Wish me luck (yeah, I know, you're wishing yourselves good luck! LOL...good luck all)

I've waited for what seems like forever. This will be my first Crackberry so you could imagine the pain of waiting for its release! Looks sweet!

It seems that my main selling factor for wanting to get the Tour over my current blackberry is the total amount of available application memory. I like to push my device to the limit and it's a draw back that it has to be reset frequently for it to run top notch. More memory hopefully less resets, more avid play time. :)

I have had a blackberry since freshman year of highschool and the saying "once you go black, you never go back" has never been so true. After falling in love with my BB I have since converted my parents and sister to make the switch and we are now a Crackberry family! I love going to class and one-uping the apple fanboys with my new 8900. I would love to win this contest because the the blackberry tour is the king of all mobile devices and I would pass my 8900 down to my little sister as not to waste another amazing device.

Thanks and good luck to all!

BB Tour has the power I need to complete some of my homework now that my laptop was stolen. A few of my friends showcase their Winmo devices, but I keep telling them BB is superior in every way. Allow me to show them!

Praying to the Blackberry GOD that he bless me with the new Tour.

*sprinkling a little fairy dust while I'm at it*

(anything that might help)

Woooh, where do I begin? I've been stalking this phone for months and refreshing my Crackberry twitter feed like a fiend.

There's numerous reasons why I'm looking to get the tour.

One, I had the Storm and was sadly disappointed with its speed.

Two, I was forced to switch back to my Curve 8330 which I do adore but its screen resolution really isn't anything special. It will always have a spot in my heart though!

Three, I'll stop here because this post will be too long hah. The over all speed, faster browser, amazing qwerty and one thing that I've really been dying to have on a phone, good call quality!!

I hope I win, crossing those fingers.

Thanks Crackberry!

i have not won anyting yet from crackberry but if i win this this would be worth over 100 wins lol i want the tour because its small sexy and sturdy oh and did i say sexy lol i think i did ....pick me lol

Hmm....I need a Blackberry Tour because my greasy, fat fingers just can't deal with the Storm anymore. But being the blackberry addict that I am, I would love to switch to a Tour (and keep my Verizon service!). Good luck everyone!!!
