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!!

My Birthday is on March 23rd this would eb an amazing gift, and i would definitely like a Blackberry Torch 9800, and since im a Crackberrian i would like the color scheme to be Orange and white, just like CB colors :)

SIgn me up! I would take a BLACKED OUT TORCH 9800!!!! thanks crackberry and colorware for this awesome contest!!!!! goodluck everyone!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

9650-pink, light pink and maybe some white. Pink for breast cancer-as it has hit my family hard and I love to support that cause! And it is THE BEST color!

My 9780 color scheme would be... everything Sand except for the bottom and inner back, which would be Carbon-Black.

Cool, another great contest - thaks again for the opportunity to win such an wesome prize. Since I think the 9780 is the best Blackbeery I've had, I would love one in Aqua & Orange (Miami Dolphins) colours!

Pearl 3G

yellow will be such an awesome color on my cellphone, even without a case!

This would be off-the-charts cool! I need to get a new phone soon anyhow, wouldn't it be awesome to get one with a custom paint job? Happy birthday Crackberry!!! and many more...

i would LOVE a completely Blacked out Bold 9780, and just have the Inner Back in Pearl White. DAYUMN!

This is so cool, I did not know that you can do that to your phone. I would love to win one and make my Torch standout from the rest.

Happy Birthday Crackberry and CB community. I could dig a matt black torch or even a mat black bold 9780 im not picky i just love the way blackberrys look with out finger prints.

Wow, I would love this. I love burnt orange and think that would look amazing on a phone or even the crackberry orange and white would be great.

Happy B-day guys! Congrats and thanks again for the amazing give aways! I'll take the torch flying the crackberry colors ;)

Torch 9800 JET BLACK!
All black, all around amazing Torch!

I'm dying to try out the Torch! I hope I'm lucky enough!!

Awesome. I'd go for the most garish colour combination possible. No one would ever want to nab my phone then!

I would go for a Blackberry 9780 with the colours of the indonesian country flag wich is red (on the sides) and white( top and bottum) and for the love of crackberry i would choose orange on the back. Crazy colourways but i would love it!

Yes yes choose me!!!

Great job being THE source for everything blackberry. Here's to many birthdays to come! The phone I choose is a Torch that's forest green with a black trim. And orange specks :P



I would no doubt pick the Torch and color it pearl white with light green. Something that looks sleek and stylish but with a bold accent.

Uh huh you know what it issssssssss

Black & Yellow
Black & Yellow
Black & Yellow
Black & Yellow
Bold 9780 :D

How about a Honolulu blue 9800 Torch with a silver bezel? Or silver body w/ DEtroit Lions logo and a blue bezel?

Would love a new Torch. Maybe a red and blue theme if it wasn't too crazy, or a blue and white theme for a more suttle taste.

Bold 9780
Frame & Logo: Cranberry Gloss
Top, Bottom & Outer back: Vanilla Gloss
Inner back : Jet Black Gloss


I would like to design one that would be black, blue, and silver. I had no idea you could design one with your own choice of colors! That's too cool. Good luck everyone, and happy birthday Crackberry!

I love the blue and white theme! But I think I'd have to go with a bright red and yellow Bold, to match my fire sign Aries. That would totally be my style.

Ofcourse we have to keep it Crackberry for the Birthday so I chose out a delicious Torch cake with the following colors:

Sides, Back & Top: Mystique Gloss
Front, Keyboard & Frame: Mango Gloss

Crackberry menu bar colors (or at least close too)

Thanks time to upgrade Bold 9000
I would take Bold 9780
All softouch
Logo, outerback and frame Carbon-black
rest all Sand

A brand new 9780 in a color yet to be determined. There are waaaay too many choices to make a quick choice from. But, by the time you draw my name (hopefully) I should have my color(s) picked! Thanks sooo much CB and Colorware. You are the bestest!

A blue and white Torch would be an awesome combo! Really need a special colour to stand out amongst the sea of black and white blackberries!

I would love to win a Torch! You know w.e a 9780 would come in handy too!!! Both in white and blue!!! It doesn't matter which one as long as I win! Hehe!

Love your work here @ CrackBerry, truely Genius. My colour scheme is simple yet would still appeal to a wide demographic of BB users and entice younger people in general.

Front - Zest Gloss

Keyboard - Jet Black Gloss

Top - Zest SofTouch

Frame - Jet Black Gloss

Sides - Zest Gloss

Back - Jet Black Gloss

Love my Bold, but the Torch's streamline functionality for web browsing has caught my eye and there's no looking back.

frame: root-beer gloss
top: vanilla gloss
bottom: vanilla gloss
inner back: vanilla gloss
outer back: vanilla gloss
logo: zest gloss
for a 9780


I would have a torch with...front..graphite
Top.. Steel

Please Please I need to replace my 9700 with something with more memory and looks badass in STL Blues colors

Either one of these awesome phones would be an upgrade from my silver 8800!!!
So if I actually do win, I'd love any phone you guys can throw at me in a Red/White Combo.
Surprise me on the actual color setup??
