You can jump over to ColorWare's BlackBerry Torch 9800 Design Studio to figure out how you'd do it up. Keep in mind it's an unlocked OEM non-CDMA phone, which means you'll need to be running it on GSM network (best on AT&T in the USA (T-Mo works, but no 3G), Rogers in Canada, etc.).

Contest: Win a Custom-Painted BlackBerry Torch Courtesy of ColorWare and! You pick the color scheme!!



This would be brilliant, I would get it painted that purple colour that the Style comes in and give it to my wife.

I need to start thinking of some color schemes just incase, custom torch would be rock!

Love the ColorWare products, Love CrackBerry and Love the Torch!!!

Please let me love what i do with a custom torch!!

I just checked out the Colorware website after seeing this post, and think they do an amazing job with all of the Blackberry's. I wish I could win this contest, as I would love to have a decked out Torch.

woohoo, this is soo awesome and prob the only way i'd ever own a torch>>>>>love crackberry for updates and colorware is purddy hehe

The only, to the extent of my knowledge, Colorware Reseller... is in Hong Kong! It's awesome. I've colorwared almost everything I have... :)

Blackberry and Colorware for the win.

This would be great to win! I think it would be hard to decide what colours to choose! Being in Canada I would do something along those lines. Thanks Colorware and Crackberry!

You both ROCK!!!

Front: Metallic Prowler; Keyboard: Solid Jet Black; Top: Pearl Diamond; Frame: Metallic Prowler; Sides: Pearl Diamond; Back: Metallic Carbon Black. Am I dreaming? :))


what do you get when CrackBerry and ColorWare team up?
an amazing contest that makes you wet yourself.

Hahaha if i win one i might just go PIMP crazy color on it! Something Tacky as hell! MAYBE if i win one though.... that gonna give blackberry haters even more to hate on lmfao!!! "IT HAS PIMP COLORS THAT WILL TRANSFORM U INTO ONE"....." I DONT CARE" (iPhone 4 vs. Blackberry Torch) lol

I would like to show off a custom-painted BB Torch to my buddies here in the Philippines, "Hey people, it's customized by ColorWare" :)

I hope to win this jewel.
I've just customized mine: an elegant mix of black and white.

CrackBerry and ColorWare rock more than Led Zeppelin :)

Im still using a 8330 and desperately need an upgrade, this would make my day, month, and year (and possibly life)

Been in love with this device before it was even official. would love to have it in orange, and turquiose, Miami Dolphins baby!!

I was super excited when I found out this contest was going on! I just got into class, turned on my laptop, signed on to crackberry and I yelled out loud, "AWESOME!" The other students looked at me wierd haha. It would be great if I win this contest because i really want the Torch. I am currently on Sprint, but i dont mind switching to AT&T to use the Torch! I think its the best product from RIM thus far! If i win the colorware version, i'll be the only one with a special torch! everyone will envy me, hahaha. Goodluck to everyone and I hope to win!

Thank you!

Again, Crackberry is the bomb. What a great giveaway. Thank you ColorWare and Crackberry for this opportunity. I already own a new Torch and love it.... image one that commemorates the Great Victory the SF Giants acheived last night.

I've played with the 9800 and I think its the best new BB on the market....
To have a custom colored Torch............



Colorware and Crackberry do rock and I would love, love, love to have a Colorware Blackberry Torch. What color would I want? A Hot purple and fushia look would be great. Hope I get my wish.

Wow! First we FINALLY get an OS 6 release for the Bold 9700 and NOW we get a chance to win a FREE Torch 9800 all snazzed up by ColorWare!! Does anyone have a BB App that I can use to pinch myself to make sure this is real?

Thanks Colorware and CrackBerry!


Id like to win the Torch 9800 so I can give it to my dad who desperately wants one...

please help me win!!! :DD

Pick me!!! I'm in looooove with the BB Torch and can't afford one yet!!! I'd love one and a pink one would be AH MAZE INGGGGG!!!

I just updated my 9700 to OS6 but hey maybe to have a 520MB of RAM device than a 256MB.. i think i would paint it Ferrari RED, or maybe an opaque Black or all silver like chrome :D

No way!!!!!! Crackberry and colorwave...please make me the envy of all of my friends!!!!!! :) if I win I'm going to put both the crackberry symbol and the color wave symbols on it!!

I would like it black/red!! If i won, this would be the BEST birthday gift ever! pick me, pick me...haha

Colorware would be sweet. Love that Crackberry always has these contests.

I would have to go Pearl white front, frame & back with Ferrari Keyboard, top and sides.

Thanks for the contast

Crackberry and ColorWare are awesome and would be amazingly awesome to give me a ColorWare'd BlackBerry Torch 9800 especially since my birthday is in 7 days :)

My trusty 9000 is getting a little old these days, and while I was going to wait it out as long as I can to upgrade, a new Torch right now wouldn't hurt!

And Cobalt seems to be a pretty good colour choice. Thank you to the guys at CrackBerry and ColorWare! Hope I win. =)

Please enter me!!! I Would love to have a custom Torch from Colorware. I have designed so many different phones on their site, I think they are amazing! Thank you for another great contest Crackberry! You are the ONE and ONLY Blackberry site for a Crackberry addicts like myself and millions of other! Good luck everyone! Thanks again!

I would paint it in orange..., or red...
or any color from the cristal pure, natural rainbow, except yellow :-)

This site is awesome and that is the reason I check out CRACKBERRY as soon as I open my eyes! I would love to win a custom 9800 in all white so that my fiance can have her very own 9800 to play with and allow me time to play with my own! :))

CrackBerry, you have a chance to bring me back to BlackBerry world!

I've gone for iPhone, but Torch in mixture of Jet Black and Ferrari Red would make me change my mind :)

Fingers crossed, thanks for awesome giveaway!

Oh i would diiie to blackout my torch i hate that stupid bevel and the ribbed back should be smoooooth. Colorware is awesome my boss' has a decked out 9700 and I'm totally jealous! Crackberry rules for bringing us these contests! If I win this contest I will donate a 9700 in mint condition to give away!

Reasons why i should win.
1. I'm stuck with an 8900, therefore no OS6 for me.
2. I never win any of these contests so winning this would be nice.
3. See one and two.
Pleaseeeeee pick me!!

I'd love a Torch! If I win I'll get it in Crackberry colors in true fashion.

Thanks for the chance ColorWare!!!

Would love to get it in Solid-cranberry with Metallic-carbon black. Simple but sweet!

Thks again CB!

CrackBerry and ColorWare are the best. I would love to create my own color scheme. It would be a white body with red trim. To be patriotic to Canada and the soliders who died for us, to protect our way of life.

Great contest guys!

i wanted to let you know that i have to thank the CrackBerry website for being a BB abuser lol
it all started when i heard people calling BlackBerry "crackberry" on tv, so i Googled and that's it... popped-up in the results :D
since that day i was always like "wow, BB's are pretty cool! i NEED 1"!
my 1st BB ever was the storm1 , which was very bad! then i sold it and bought the BB Curve 8900, which is amazing and i still use :D
i bought it on March 2009... so it's almost 2 years old and with all of the things that RIM has given out... i need an upgrade! the BB Torch seems to be the right choice! but here in italy it'll cost 659 €s (about 924 $'s), which is too much! i can't afford it!
so, you crackberry started my addiction but now i need your help to keep it going lol
i love crackberry because you always keep me updated with the best BlackBerry news and i love colorware because the colors they mix are just breathtaking and look very well together!
i really hope i'll win the Torch! :D
Love (what you do lol), Bruno.

I would like a custom one! Some douche dropped mine and now I need a new one... I'd prolly give the dropped one away :p

good thing colorware exists... i don't have to worry about whether the housing fits or not if i want to buy a new housing. and not to worry also i killed a screw while i attempt to open/close my phone (happened) and put something back in reverse (happened).

having a phone in customized color is pretty awesome because it is unique and i don't have to mistakenly grab my brother's cellphone when i am in a hurry because we both have black blackberries. i'd mix my own color if i get to customize my blackberry :)

i don't think i have to say how much crackberry rocks right? just by logging in at least 3 times a day.... that explains a lot.

I would love a custom painted blackberry torch! I think the torch's are so sleek and nice phones!

Thanks to Crackberry and Colorware for these awesome opportunities


I'd like to have a torch to compare to my galaxy s! it was a contender when I was choosing a new phone but was taking too long to get to Canada

The ColorWare mod for the Torch ROCKS!!!!! It adds that right amount of flare to a GREAT device!!!!

This Torch would be so nice... I would do anything for this new toy. Need to upgrade from my Bold 9000 which, as I always offer in these contests, I would donate to a Crackberry in the name of science (or simply to give-away to someone who is using a much older device)

I say either something outragous like oilers orange and blue, all pearl white, or if they can all matte black like my bold 9000,

I would pick all black - I see a line of torches and I want to paint it black) or I would paint it the darkest red possible to match my Dodge Durango or grey to match the interior of the durango.

This thing is awesome, I would totally customize it to the Johns Hopkins Blue Jays colors - baby blue and black. This would make this awesome phone even better.

I had a blackberry for about 1yr when I was able to upgrade my phone with sprint well crazy me decided to try a different phone (samsung hd) well I tried it for a couple of weeks when I decided that I had made a terrible mistake so back I go to the sprint store and changed back to the blackberry 8530 and I am sooooo very happy that I did I was able to transfer all of my purchased apps etc to new phone and I am so happy and content now. I am a single mom of two boys with autism and with all the Dr appts. etc my blackberry keeps me focused and straight I'm not forgetting or missing appointments as I almost did with the samsung (I had to have a pocket calender to keep everything in order which was a big headache!!!) oh yea it also keep be from getting in trouble with work too..well that's my comment and I will always always stay with the Blackberry phone its a life saver...!! Thanks M

If i win this i would go with the limited edition team canada scheme or show my pride and loyalty for the van canucks and let my berry bleed green white and blue

Hey I would love to get rid of my crappy E71 and replace it with a sick ColorWare Torch from Crackberry. Here's to hoping!
