This is stupid crazy fun! HOORAY for Crack Team! I just have one question. Who came up with the number 78? Why not 80? O who cares! Come one December 25th!!!!! I got my jammies on and waiting! :)

1 + 2 + 3 + 4 + 5 + 6 + 7 + 8 + 9 + 10 + 11 + 12 = 78

1st Day of CrackBerry = 1 prize
2nd Day of CrackBerry = 2 prizes
3rd Day of Crackberry = 3 prizes
etc. etc.

And that's how we Arrive at the magical number of 78!

It is crazy! Spread the Word!!!

Alright, now that at least 78 people have found out about this, myself included, you can stop promoting this. I seriously want to win some cool stuff, and the more people that find out, the less likely I am to win. So now that I know about it, you can stop promoting it. Thanks for your time and consideration. (Oh, and great job on the site and on the contest! I am a brand new Crackberry Addict and was almost not. I just recently got an 8320 Curve and love it. But... If it wasn't for this site and for a friend of mine also with a Curve, I'd be yet another iPhone carrying Crackberry Addict wanna be. I can't imagine not having a keyboard and the great amazing BB push email or kicka$$ BB OS. I am a Treo convert and will never go back to Palm now that ePocrates has come out with their famous medical software for the BB. So thanks for making me a BB convert and not an iPhone idiot.)

Have always said that is THE best BlackBerry forum on the Net. What a great idea for a Contest - THE TWELVE DAYS OF CRACKBERRY!!

Good luck to everyone. We CrackBerry users and abusers can always use more CrackBerry love.


just working out some of the details (which prizes on which days, etc.) and the thread topics... should get that all figured out this afternoon then will be getting the contest site up and threads in place.

hang tight! :)

What a great idea!!! I am definetely in for this one!!!
Merry Christmas to all...and to all good luck!!! :)

This is way too cool!! I hope we all get a chance at a prize!! I would love to win some new accessories for my Blackberry or even a new smartphone!!! Good Luck to all.... and Merry Christmas!!!

Each Day of CrackBerry will be a separate drawing, so technically you could win up to 12 times. The odds against that will be pretty bad though!

My guess would be in 78 winners we may see one or two repeats.
