You can jump over to ColorWare's BlackBerry Torch 9800 Design Studio to figure out how you'd do it up.

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



I am ready to upgrade both my tired old bold 9000 with the sticky trackball and my tired old style with a one of a kind torch. I would cherish this thing and tell everyone that asked about it that I have and Colorware to thank!

The torch is definitely my favorite blackberry out there.
My curve is starting to become unusable so I've been looking for a new bberry!

If I won this I'd definitely get all white, since white blackberrys are definitely more stylish!

p.s. crackberry rocks ;)

I would write something cheesy/funny but I really can't think of any. As always, I am hoping I would win this. Good-luck to everyone :)

Would love to win a Torch in a custom color!

Crackberry + Colorware = Awesome Contests!

Just about done with my Verizon contract (less than a month to go).

What better way to start out on a new carrier than with a new custom Blackberry courtesy of the best site on the web!

What do you mean I have some brown stuff on my nose???

I need a new blackberry! im still stuck with my 8310 curve! i think a white/blue torch would be awesome!

I love that I have a chance to win a Blackberry Torch!!
I would paint it either Emerald green, or a chic purple!
Keeping my fingers crossed!

DUDE a blackberry torch would be an awesome upgrade from my Curve 8310. I'd definitely go with the Red and White theme, similar to the default theme on the ColorWare site - - but with a white front. That is one sick phone! ColorWare, you take our boring business phones and turn them into something we can show off to our friends. CrackBerry, you guys do a great service to the blackberry community and offer free stuff all the time, you guys are awesome! Thanks for all you do, and thanks for the free blackberry!!! ;)

What a combination a 9800 that I have been waiting on forever and on top of that I get to make it as awsome as possible!!

Love it when colorware & Crackberry gets some sick stuff for free! hook me up ! i'm bored with my black torch :)

loving ur site as always my number 1 source for bb ;), colorware parts and phones looks even better than orignal parts! HOPE I CAN WIN ! thanks ! u are great...

U should pick me cause crackberry has made my life so much more fun. I look forward to reading the articles everyday, its fun.
Colorware is the best thing u can have for a bb. The torch in the pic is great.

I'd sure love to win this Torch! I'd keep it pretty simple and masculine, I'd go with Gloss Metallic Black on the front, frame, and sides, and Gloss Metallic Graphite on the keyboard, top, and back. Thanks for letting me enter!

I get all my blackberry tips and software from this website. If I win, I would like to paint my torch all white! Go crackberry!

I would absolutely love to win ColorWare's awesome Blackberry Torch 9800 thta I alone get to paint in the scheme of MY choosing, no one else's! Rock on Crackberry! is the best website ever! Haha. If I win this I would want it either all white, or all black, without the chrome/silver painted border (don't know what it's called).

OMG, i just use the Design Studio to created my custom-9800, and it looks ABSOLUTE AMAZING!! Colorware, you guys are doing some amazing work, keep it up!

I love Crackberry its actually my homepage lol , I would love to win a Blue and Black Torch just like the one in that display pic , BB's + Crackberry rock my world !

What coloUr should I chose, if I am lucky enough to win?

Red and white (maple leaf)

And why. So amoung all my co-workers. I can easyly make sure I get my phone, and not someone else, after we get up from a meeting

Boring iPhone just have one colour. Everyone has a boring iPhone, no personality, sucky phone. I need this colorware. How about a purple red-wine dark matte quality color?

It would be so sweet to have a Hot Pink Fusion and Jet Black Torch. Thanks for the opportunity to win. Crackberry & Colorware ROCK!!!

Colorware is one of the coolest companies selling a great product and I have always wanted a customized blackberry but couldn't afford one so this would be great, and thanks for making this possible.

What a Bold statement I could make when I Storm into the office on November 15th and Torch the place with my newfound Color and passion! Be Ware!

This one's a no brainer. FREE Torch?? Yea-ahhhhhh! Count me in!!

And yes, CrackBerry DOES rock and ColorWare is flippin' AWESOME!

NO no no no, la verdad un color fregon seria uno dorado... no amarillo ni naranja... un color dorado oscuro... pufffff... le entro!!!!

I would love to win a ColorWare Torch. Make mine red and white please! I have a Torch now, from my company, and I love it. It is the best BlackBerry I've ever had in the last 11 years that I've been using one. A ColorWare Torch of my own would be a perfect parting gift when I leave the company soon.

I realy hope that the winner is picked at random and not for the comment, cause I don't have jack to say after today's bold 9700 os 6 leak!

I have to have that device, not only 'cause ColorWare awesomely allows unique customization but also for the BlackBerry 6 that I can't run on my Tour!

I already have my colors picked out Black & Yellow...this phone is gonna rock. Kudos to ColorWare and Crackberry...just can't get throught a day without either one.

Will Tweet for work... or is that work for tweets?

How about I just tweet that CrackBerry is awesome, if I win?


Just i was thinking of obtaining a Blackberry Torch for my birthday this 26 of December, & would love to win and get a custom color of my choice of it :D please make my year Crackberry & Colorware

I would go with the old Blue & Gold, the Sabres colors... even though they suck at the moment.

I've spent way too much time drooling over ColorWare's website and my Bold 9000 is starting to get a bit rusty... Would love it!

I have never won one of these contest. Although I haven't heard of Colorware, that Torch looks pretty bad-ass. =D

Good luck fellow addicts!

I think I would have it painted black and white? Maybe black and gold?

I'm going to go research options :)t

Orange and black like the general lee!

Or if only they could put the cool Knight Rider light on the front.

This has to be the best contest I have seen so far. I'm glad to see that there is a possibility for alternate color schemes for the torch. I hope i win because the color scheme I'm playing along with now is hot! Be sure to check the webpage out and customize your dream torch!

The colorware blackberry torch in the above picture looks incredible, I own a curve 8520 and would love a torch but being a student cant afford such luxuries unfortunately! I've played about with the colorware application and its great fun designing possible phones.

gotta go with the ferrari red with a little sexy...could certainly use a new phone after getting mine stolen this weekend

Thanks CB and thanks ColorWare.
I would definitely have to have some red on my Torch someWare. Lots of choices and combinations. Geesh!! What fun it would be to decide.

I would absolutely love a pink and black Torch!! I've heard a lot of really good things about it, so it would be great to win one!!

I like the color of the one in the picture! Otherwise a bright green one would pretty much rock. Colorware and Crackberry rock!

Here is the chance to rock a new Torch and get it in a Transformers Bumblebee colour scheme (yes dorky - but what can I tell you)

so this is the reason why i urgent need it :) Other reason is that my blackberry gone during a work accident and i need a new device.

best regards,


Wow ! a sexy phone with a sexy color ! :)

thanks Crackberry

good luck everyone !

and GOOD LUCK TO ME ! :)

Thanks Crackberry and Colorware, this is an awesome prize.

I definitely know what color I would like if I win this! It would be blue! :D

OMG.....Bold 9700 OS6 is leaked! What could be better...?

A free Blackberry Torch, now that would make my day.

Personally i'd have it blue and yellow as a tribute to Portsmouth FC combining a bit of business (bb) and pleasure (soccer as you call it in the states) ;)

Off topic: I'd just like to say Crackberry is great, i've obviously got the rss feed on viigo on my Baby Bold :) and check it multiple times each day.

Anyway keep up the good work and keep making us happy like you do so well :)


I love the "ColorWare" concept of giving us consumers the option to CUSTOMISE the products we buy. No longer are you tied down to what the manufacturer designs & gives you.

Personally, i love color & being able to design electronics with colors is just awesome.

Seriously hope to get a Colorware Torch. It would be an amazing upgrade & would be great to win a "TORCH" around the festival of lights :)

I wish they made Colorware for the Storm2. I'll gladly take a Colorware BB Torch though to make up for it.

Carbon Black and Pearl Zest (Orange).
Front, Frame, and Back: Zest
Keyboard, Top, and Sides: Carbon Black

It looks sick, you should try it out.

I can't stop play at the Design Studio, there are so many colors to choose from. Even though if i really won, i don't know if i can decide what colors to go with. This is gonna be my birthday wish!

I was just droolin over these Blackberries this morning!!!! I would love to get this!! I would get a blue, I think. Pick ME, Shrek!

I always wanted to ColorWare my berry but couldn't stand to send it away, even if just for a couple of days.

Thanks to Colorware and Crackberry for this great opportunity. Hope to win it! Colors wise, maybe black and gold for my team the Steelers.

Great going Crackberry. Its good to know that you appreciate your fans and provide all the "crack" to keep us on our tippy toes. Nice Giveaway !

Not only a chance to win a torch, but in my custom color scheme too. ColorWare rocks and by the way, you can make mine Cardinal Red and Black. I love CRACKBERRY!!!!!!

I recently used my upgrade to purchase the BB Torch. Now the white version is coming out this weekend and no more upgrades!!! I would die for a white Torch!!! HELP!!!!

It would be the craziest thing if I won this special amazinG customized torch and it would be the first thing I've ever won hahaa crackberry is really cool I found out about it a couple of months ago and go on it daily to see whatsup and what's going on and they always are quick on there information and its really great. If I won this I would be so happy I'd make mine a blue with some white and maybe some silver or grey mettalic I'd make it so it would look diffrent than anyone elses pick me :) haha

The only thing better than owning a Blackberry Torch would be to own a Colorware'd Blackberry Torch, the Gold Standard in Blackberries!

Hey :) i would love to finally afford a colorware BB. i love crackberry and i am sure i would love colorware. some of my friends have it, and its amazing! the soft touch paint is such a nice feel :) please please please let me win this!

thank youu carl

colorware's is like the lamborghini of accessories world... not sure if that made sense but you get what i mean.

Well only the later and that was an attempt at humor by the way to stand out and get points for being different so haters hate. Anyway if I get it i'm going with a Purple and Gold choice modeled after my LAKERS. Or i'm going with a nice blue and black to match my style.

I would like it in black cherry if they have it. With the crackberry symbol on the back. Because crackberry rocks out solid.

I would love to have this spectacular Torch 9800! The bonus is that I would be the first one to ever own a dark/light green Torch 9800, thanks to ColorWare!!!

I just switched from an android phone to a BlackBerry about a month ago. I love it and ever since then Ive been on everyday. Keep up the good work. I think ill paint my torch a cool orange and gray two tone.

Would LOVE to win this and have my own crimson and cream (red and white) Torch!!! Gotta love CrackBerry!

Hey I think that Crackberry is the best site for Blackberry cellphones. I Check your site constantly to get all the news, reviews & stuff for my Blackberry. I really admire the artistic work ColorWare does, it really adds alot in customizing & making cellphones & other products look unique & stand out. I would love to win a ColorWare customized Torch. My Colour of choice would be a Metallic dark Blue.

Crackberry and Colorware match made in Heaven! This Colorwave's Blackberry Torch in blue would sure be apple of my eye!!

Ahhhh, there's not one day where I don't go on to read the forums to learn more and more about my blackberry :) If I won the Torch, I would get it painted 2 different pink colors and it would be very girly! :)

I had a friend with a 9700 who couldn't figure out why a new message icon wasn't going away. I showed her Crackberry and did a search, finding the answer. Turns out she accidentally pressed Save Message on a message she never read, so it got moved to the Saved Messages folder. She deleted it and the icon went away, and now Crackberry has one more fan.

Man I love Crackberry and ColorWare! What a great giveaway too win. Root Beer, Dragon and a hint of Red looks freakin' SIC! Good luck ya'll!
