Happy Birthday CrackBerry Nation!!! We're six years old young today. With new BlackBerry 10 phones hitting the market and an all-new CrackBerry website redesign rolling out later this week, we have never felt better.

As promised in my CrackBerry Turns 6 post, it wouldn't be a CrackBerry birthday celebration without a contest. We've been giving away a BlackBerry Z10 a week for the month of February, and we're doing it again this week. 

Win a FREE BlackBerry Z10 from CrackBerry: To enter for your chance to win, all you need to do is login to CrackBerry and leave a comment or birthday wish to this post. It's as simple as that. Just leave one comment (any additional comments are not counted as entries). This one goes until Midnight EST this Sunday, and we'll announce the winner next week. Be sure to watch the birthday greeting video above, and GOOD LUCK!!

Dear crackberry,

wishing you all the best for the next year ahead. May it bring you lots of new readers who find their way into the crackberry nation.

All the best,

Feliz cumpleaños crackberry son lo mejor que hay, sigan asi siendo lo mejor y que la comunidad dure muchos años mas

Happy birthday Crackberry... and here is to many more years of salivating over new BB10 phones :D

Happy Birthday to you, Marmelade im Schuh, Aprikose in der Hose, Happy Birthday tooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo youuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuu!

Despite the wife constantly rubbing it in that she has a shiny new Z10 and I don't (yet), I think I will have to go with the words of Christopher Robin to commemorate your 6th birthday...

When I was 1, I was just begun.
When I was 2, I was nearly new.
When I was 3, I was hardly me.
When I was 4, I was not much more.
When I was 5, I was just alive.
But now that I'm 6, I'm clever as clever; so I think I will stay 6 now forever and ever!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY CRACKBERRY!!!! Thanks for everything that everyone does and many chanes to win a Z10.

Love this site!!

For a year now, I've been following the news around Blackberry through and here to see its turned 6 years old. I've owned Blackberrys for 6 years, I really wonder why I hadn't found this site then. I'm really glad to see both Blackberry and Crackberry grow up to such a beautiful device and a beautiful site. Much love, Keep moving, and I look forward to many more years of Blackberry and Crackberry by its side....

Happy Birthday,! It's great to have such a powerful and helpful resource available to us users, and those of us who support those excellent BlackBerry devices in Enterprise environments. BES10 is nearly here (for me, pilots are ongoing now) and a new Z10 in my hand would be truly wonderful to test with. The more BB in my hands, the better!!!

Many Happy returns of the day!

Go, go, go CrackBerry its your birthday,
Cause it's your birthday
We gon' party like it's yo birthday
We gon' sip Bacardi like it's your birthday
And you know we don't give a ****
It's not your birthday

Happy Birthday to the Crackberry team and thank you for actually existing! Without you I'd not know how to use my phone properly, and through this website I've been able to learn lots and make amazing friends. You're the website I check everyday the most and its great fun reading everything you have to offer!
Thanks, and I wish you and the Crackberry team the best for the future. :)

Happy Birthday Crackberry. Even after I had to make the switch to an iPhone last year I still read your site. Help me get back to Blackberry.

Happy birthday to you
happy birthday to you
happy birthday to CrackBerry
Happy birthday to you

Oh, this day comes but once a year
that's why we sing this happy cheer
Happy birthday from all of us here,
happy birthday until next year.

Happy 6th Birthday, what a great way for you to celebrate by giving members the chance to win a new Z10

Wanna say congrats on the success on the major bb 10. It was amazing. Yourll was able to pull it off.otherwise, blackberry seemed to be going down, as the head of CEO mentioned. I just wanna say all the best in the future. I hope that this bb 10 will just be the beginning of many years to come and to achieve higher grounds. Bb 10 is a solid phone by looking at the reviews and sure as hell out the other two rivals. Lol I won't mention names..I really hope I will win this blackberry z10 its my only dream phone. I don't wish for anything more than a blackberry z10.yourll take good care,and heyyyyyyyy

Buon compleanno!

Happy Birthday CrackBerry! The Z10 is the most exciting new phone out this year, thank you for being so generous to give them away.

HB, CrackBerry! I've been lurking since 2008 and I love what the site has turned into. BB10 is the most exciting thing to happen during my time here. I can wait to see what is next. Long live CB!

You guys have come a long way! I haven't been a member since the beginning, I officially joined last year. But I frequently browsed the forums since 2008 because my mother got a Blackberry Pearl with Sprint in January of 2008 and that's when she had joined. (Don't remember her username though). I would browse the forums with her because I was jealous that she had this cool Blackberry and I had a cheap flip phone (until I got a Moto Q in May of 08. Wanted the BB but the Moto Q was free on upgrade and the BB at the time was "expensive"). I remember helping her find themes and nice wallpapers! I always wanted one.
Fast forward to now, I still browse the forums and post here and there. My Bold 9930 broke last year so I'm on my iPhone until the Q10 comes out on Sprint (wish the Z10 was coming to Sprint!) so hopefully by May when my upgrade is available the Q10 will be on Sprint. BUT if I won this Z10 I'd unlock it and switch to AT&T or T-Mobile in a heart beat!
I hope I win. It would be the first contest I win on Crackberry or any other Mobile nations site. I think it'd be cool to say "hey! I won a new Z10 from CRACKBERRY!" :p
Aside from all of that, thanks for being the go-to site for all things Bl(CR)ackberry! You guys have helped me more than you know.

A devoted Crackberry member!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY CRACKBERRY!!!! Thanks for all the amazing articles and reviews you guys make. There is not a day that goes by that I don't check your website for the latest information. I cant get to bed without checking the website.

I've been rocking a BlackBerry (first 9700 then the 9900 and now, hopefully, the Z10) for the last three years and have been a CrackBerry reader for the same time.

Thanks for creating a great site!

The Whole CrackBerry Team, thank you for an amazing 6 years of unmatched info, support and community. Happy Birthday, all the best for the future!

It was a little over a year ago that I first discovered Crackberry, since then I have become so knowledgeable of the Blackberry brand and its workings that now my fellow BB users often come to me seeking answers to any issues and I have gone as far as to go on the Blackberry Facebook page and offer my help there as well. If I don't have the answers I send them the link to Crackberry.

But that's not all, Kevin, Bla1ze, Simon and Michelle have been so very nice to me, more so than any other site I have visited on a regular occasion since 1994. I must say they are the absolute best people to have running a site and being members of a family type atmosphere that is enjoyed by all that visit. Their sheer brilliance at writing reviews, the fun late night live video chats leading up to the BB10 Launch and the general liking of posts in the forums have made me PROUD to say I am a Crackberry addict. Every day I look so fondly to seeing what new posts they have on the front page and any exciting news I may find in the forums. Kevin has created possibly THE BEST COMMUNITY on the entire internet.

Not only is He funny but He does things in a way that everyone can relate to, be it the casual user, the power user and corporate types out there. He makes this site feel like it is our site as well. A place that all are welcome and nobody is excluded.

I am glad that I got turned onto the BB brand and to the Crackberry nation that is thriving and wonderful each and every day. Happy 6th Birthday Crackberry and Kudos to the CB Team for keeping it very real through all this success. Here's to many many more years of awesome posts, great contests and wonderful memories to come.


Great job guys. You are part of the reason blackberry keeps going strong. Happy 6th birthday. Lol. Bring on the Z10 engineering.

Happy Birthday Crackberry!! Although I lurked for a year and have been a member for 2, this community has been great! Can't wait to see what is in store for the future!

Happy birthday Crackberry!!! And Thank you Kevin, you're a crazy men!!!! You make me laugh all the times!!

I found out about this website a year ago, since then I haven't been clean, always on that Crack Berry. People tell me I need rehab, I tell them I need more berries.

Happy birthday Crackberry!

God gave a gift to the world when you were born—
a person who loves, who cares,
who sees a person’s need and fills it,
who encourages and lifts people up,
who spends energy on others
rather than herself,
someone who touches each life she enters,
and makes a difference in the world,
because ripples of kindness flow outward
as each person you have touched, touches others.
Your birthday deserves to be a national holiday,
because you are a special treasure
for all that you’ve done.
May the love you have shown to others
return to you, multiplied.
I wish you the happiest of birthdays,
and many, many more,
so that others have time to appreciate you
as much as I do.

Happy Birthday to you Crackberry, been following you guys from almost day 1, so I'm happy you're enjoying all this success and keep going strong. Keep up the good work !!!

Happy B-day CB :D <3
I've already bought a Z10 but i don't mind winning it and giving it to my sister ( my twin ) ..
and if i won it i'll make a cake for you :D

Happy Birthday, Crackberry! Turning 6 is a big accomplishment for a site, especially as great as this one is. My birthday wish? A White Z10 for Verizon, por favor!

Happy 6th birthday! I have not been a member since the beginning. However, in the time frame I have participated in the posts I have seen big changes. You guys have come a long way. Thank you and keep up the good work. Let's go for another 6+ years since the Z10 and the rebranded BlackBerry can be considered the new birth of an era. Cheers!

Happy B day, I have enjoyed and kept informed on BB trhu your site.
Hope to have you and BB around for many more.
