Win a ColorWare BlackBerry!

ColorWare has been helping us celebrate our birthdays since we turned one year old, so there's so way we'd turn four years out without giving CrackBerry readers yet another chance to win a custom painted BlackBerry. Courtesy of ColorWare, this year the lucky winner will get a brand new BlackBerry Torch 9800, Pearl 3G or Bold 9780 with their choice of color scheme. Let me say that again... you get to choose the device AND the custom color scheme. Want to go patriotic with a red, white and blue Bold 9780? How about a CrackBerry orange Torch 9800? You can choose whatever you want - the design is totally up to you! Be sure to follow the link at the bottom of this post to jump over to ColorWare's site where you can test the color options in their Design Studio.

Contest Details: To enter to win, just leave a single comment on this post telling us what color scheme and device you'd choose. Contest ends this Sunday March 13th at midnight PST. Good luck!!

CrackBerry Birthday Contest: Win a Custom Painted Colorware BlackBerry Torch, Bold 9780 or Pearl 3G!



It'll have a lot of Orange, red white and blue!! Support my fav soccer team! Holland!
Oh yeah!!

And of course I'd take the torch or the 9780.

I lost my first, one and only blackberry a couple weeks ago being the torch. I am stuck with a motorola razr and cannot financially afford another blackberry so this contest would mean a lot to me. With that being said i would prefer the 9780 with the following colors: Frame, Top, Bottom,outer back and the logo all softouch sand And the innerback a softouch cranberry

What a contest. Thanks to ColorWare and CB. Here goes mine, a Torch with:
Front - Graphite (gloss)
Keyboard - Midnight (gloss)
Top - Abyss (gloss)
Frame - Graphite (gloss)
Sides - Midnight (gloss)
Back - Abyss (gloss)

I would really like to win I'm looking to come back to the Crackberry army after experimenting with Android. Help make my transition easy with an awesome custom 9780!

I'd have to go with a black/red 9780 since there's no 9780 for ATT and I love black/red combos! Thanks Colorware and CrackBerry! Happy Birthday!

haa. THIS again! YES. I've been ridiculed so much for not getting the iphone. But if I get some sexy looking custom colors for my torch, like black, white, and blue, man, that'll show em.

Would love one!

Im thinking a Torch in yellow and black, or maybe blue and black, or blue and white, or......... I guess you will have to pick me to find out for sure.

BB Pearl 3G All in Glamour *pink pearl* Gloss - but if its possible then white one not with black keyboard ;) it's for my Fiancee :$ Good Luck all :)

I know there are a lot of people making comments but I would LOVE to win a beautiful Florida Gator colored BlackBerry _______! I can't think of a better way to help CrackBerry celebrate a birthday and ColorWare show everyone their outstanding ability to customize a BlackBerry!

ZOMG!!!! i would love one! And I've never won anything in my life this would make up for it all 10 fold lol.

I would love it like this:
Front: Midnight
Keyboard: smoke-white
Top: smoke-white
Frame: midnight
Sides: smoke-white
Back: midnight

its simple but stylish =)

Would be happy with any Blackberry but in order would like 9800 then 9780 and last but not least 9300!

Bold 9780

Top - Candy Apple softouch
Bottom - Carbon-black softtouch
inner back - carbon-black softouch
Outer back - carbon-black softouch

Pick me cause my colours are kick ass!

I'd go with a combination of matte black and red. The red torch looks great, but the accents are wrong for me. Maybe add some strips of silver to make the Torch's form pop.

When I win, please have our friends at design me a Bold 9780 with a sleek gold and silver design! Gold housing with a chrome silver bezel would look sweet! :)

I would LOVE to win the yellow and gray bold 9780 that phone looks too sick! Please pick me!! I am seriously obsessed with Blackberry and these designs are making me even more obsessed haha Blackberry ftw!

I am currently stuck with a Verizon storm2 which actually does work ok and wouldn't mind but I can't even update it to OS6 so I'm still @ OS5. So crackberry please help your crackaddict out with a new black grey and slight red blackberry. Would love the torch but since I'm on Verizon I can work with a bold all day.

I would love a Bold 9780 with a "Midnight Gloss" frame, "Jade Gloss" top, "Caution Gloss" bottom, "Jade Gloss" inner back, "Caribbean Gloss" outer back, and "Caution Gloss" logo.

I want the torch that would be ideal. I would get it with the front and keyboard in alpine, the top in diamond, the frame in zest, with the sides and back in abyss. I would love that.

This would be great! I'm not sure if I'd choose a 9780 or a Torch as i have a 9700 now...but i think a crackberry orange color scheme would be in order :) Pick me!

I would LOVE a Bold 9780; inner back, top, bottom, and sides in billiard gloss; and the outer back, and frame in carbon black soft touch!

And remember to pick me!

For me it would have to be the Torch in the gorgeous colours of..oh no! sooo many gorgeous colours, can't think right now. Happy birthday CB :) Gr8 contest thx CB & ColorWare :)

Maybe I could win I enter every contest yet I never win anything!! I would make the colors white yellow and black to support my boston bruins!!!

Torch, Candy-Apple for the top and the keyboard. The other parts would be Carbon-Black. All the parts would be SoftTouch.

Call me traditional, but a Torch with a mix of black and white elements sounds great. A white front and sides, and a black back and top looks pretty sweet per the Colorware site. Pick me!

Happy Birthday CrackBerry........Learned a lot from you guys over the years.....Keep up the great work..... Would LOVE either a Torch or 9780

Black and Yellow, like a goldish Yellow, like a Batman sorta colour. BB Bold! Black, chromish casing with yellow streaks..(I have the best visual idea), but I can't put it in words. Lol

Happy birthday crackberry for 4 years of dedication to your users and customers and I'm grateful for that. All the best for the furture :) if I win I would want to go patriotic with a red, white and blue Bold 9780.

I can’t believe this….what a celebration.

I would choose a Torch and would have to experiment a bit for the color scheme.
It would be a NASCAR theme…Tony Stewart and the #14 or Mark Martin #5.
Choice of phone was tough enough…need to finalize the paint scheme.

Thanks crackberry and colorware.

Wow maybe something along the lines of red, white and blue. I'd totally love to have the Coat of Arms of Chile on the back (on a BB Torch) but I guess I can't be too picky!

Congrats on the 4 years and being such an awesome site. <3

I would love to have a red and white bold 9780 to match my red and white 9700 and 9000 :D *crosses fingers*

I would take a Torch 9800, with the front, keyboard and top all the color "Caribbean" and the rest of the phone "smoke-white" thanks!

I'd love a Torch for my AT&T account. Most of it I would get in "Abyss" -- I like the color and love the name of the color. Might make the keyboard black or a lighter blue. (Softouch on the back and sides if that upgrade option is included in the prize...)

Blackberry 9780

Inner Back:Red
Outer Back:Black


Inner Back:Blue
Outer Back:White

Hope I win I really took my time to choose the colors :)

This above all is something i would never be able to get for myself and if i won a bold 9780 from colorWare i will give you an open mouth kiss on the lips for at least 10 seconds well the time limit is negotiable. Maybe even 7 minutes in Heaven.
