LOST MY CURVE IN A CAR CRASH PLEASE LET ME WIN I LOVE THE BOLD SERIES!!!! CRACKBERRY ROCKS MY SOCKS!!!

CrackBerry Contest: Win an IOU for a BlackBerry Bold 9900 or 9930!!! this is the magic sentence to win it.. trust me

this phone right here can easily replace an iphone 4, i am soo proud of rim for this invention, i want this phone more than to see Osama Bin Ladin headshots lol

Great potential to come to the forefront in the smart phone market. A new starting point in the growth of blackberry. I want one!

This phone better ballin!! I love my bold now but would love to enjoy the use of the touch screen.. Send me one!! haha..

I am loving this new Bold. I had the 9000 and loved the sound quality and the screen. Now it has the best of both worlds with the keyboard, touchscreen and build quality. I would love to own one.

The new Bold looks amazing! I love my Bold 9700, but add a touchscreen to this device and I will be in love with it!

Finally a sweet line up from Blackberry's newest addition to the BOLD family that best differentiate us users. This would be a perfect B-Day gift to me May 30.

to win this would allow me to force a BB life onto my newlywed partner....shes using an iFail from apple now, would that to change...help me out Crackberry!!!

i never anything, let alone winning a phone. I cant wait to move back to one of these from a torch!!!!

Can't wait to retire my 9000 for this one. This is the upgrade that my fat fingers have been waiting for.

Make it happen soon....

I HAVE BEEN RESEARCHING THE BOLD 9900/9930 SINCE IT 1ST DEBUTED! I'M A CURRENT T-MOBILE BOLD 9700 GSM BB USER! I'VE BEEN PRAYING 4 A 4G BB BOLD W/FLASH HTML 5 TO RUN FASTER & ELIMINATE THAT STINKY/ANNOYING HOUR GLASS IN THE CENTER! AND THEN W/ NFC, ADDED TOUCH SCREEN,VOICE UNIVERSAL SEARCH, ADDED FULL USAGE OF MICROSOFT OFFICE WHICH HELPS W/MY SCHOOLWORK! THEN COMBINED W/BBM TO COMPETE W/THE IPHONE/ANDROID MARKETS MAKES ITS LIKE THE PERFECT PHONE! I AM THE BB AMBASSADOR TO ALL MY FRIENDS/FAMILY & CONVINCE THEM 2 STICK AROUND AND THEY DO! I HAVE SEEN ALL BB 9900/9930 TUTORIALS ON YOUTUBE & OS 7 ROCKS! I NEED THIS PHONE YES WANT TOO BUT I REALLY NEED THE BOLD 9900 FOR SURVIVAL! BLACKBERRY ISN'T JUST A PHONE! ITS A WAY OF LIFE!

I'd love to be the lucky winner on this one. My upgrade eligibility with VzW isn't until late next year so winning this phone this way may very well be my only crack at it.
Thanks CrackBerry for giving us a shot at this great new phone via this contest.

Oh my goodness YES PLEASE.

And my favorite thing about this device is the touch screen and the buttons(side and keyboard) with HD recording. :)

I definitely want to this contest. I love the new Bold 9900 because it combines touch screen with keyboard without the slide form factor. Also it includes HD video on top of that! I finally see that RIM is starting to step up the technology they decide to use in their phones.

I want the BlackBerry Bold Touch 9900!!
This IS the best blackberry to date! I'm ready for this!
Simply looks amazing! I want!

I'll like to win this phone! looks so amazing its the dreamed BlackBerry, morphing Bold 9000's form factor with all the incredible new features and BlackBerry Os 7!

Good Luck All!

Yes, please. What isn't there to like about this phone? NFC, PPI, speed, separate app storage, amazing camera, touch screen. It's been good knowing you 8900.

Best of both worlds!! Touch and the greatest QWERTY Keyboard ever. Reminds me of the 9000 which was an awesome device!

Love the metal on the side, even though it kinda looks like the iphone4 on the sides.

I decided to try out a Windows phone and now want to switch back. The new bold looks perfect for me.

The thing that I like more at this phone---it is the size of it! I love this Blackberry,this is the real Blackberry.

Love this phone! I have been waiting for a brilliant upgrade like this since I am still on a 8800. I love how it is so thin and light and how it has BlackBerry OS 7 on it! I would love to get this from CrackBerry! :)

I would LOVE to have one of these - Can't wait to see them! Thanks CrackBerry! Can't wait for the new display!!!!

I have been patiently waiting for this for a long time. This would be a purrfect match for my awesome Playbook.

This is a dream device that I've been waiting for! Time to replace my 9700! Thanks for the chance CB!

I am planning to get this if it comes to sprint but I would really love to win it too! Thanks again CrackBerry for another GREAT Contest!

Been going through the entire Blackberry family, started with a Bold 9000, ended up with a Torch 9800 (had all the rest in between).

This would be a nice replacement for my Torch which is getting slower and slower as time goes by. 1.2GHZ processor I <3 you !

The Bold 9900 is the Blackberry I always wanted! The bigger form factor of the Bold 9000, with the bigger keyboard of the Bold 9000, a clearly very fast CPU and the icing on the cake.....a touch screen!!!

Best of luck everyone.....though I hope the luck goes my way!!! :D

Here is to a wing and a prayer for a new phone! Gettin excited with the stuff coming out today! Bridge BBM and a Playbook OS update..............keep it coming RIM!

Oh man, you know I'm in. A faster interface with a larger screen does it for me; a touchscreen is a nice bonus. Can't wait to get this one and scoring it from the awesome folks at CrackBerry.com would make it even better!

this would be the best prize oh my goodness. i love this phone as it would be capable of wifi hotspot. i want to share my data plans with my friends who don't have data plans. and share with crackberry too why not ? hehe. please crackberry let me win. thank you so much crackberry !!

I have been waiting for an updated version of the original Bold. I would love to get my hands on this beauty.

WOW this looks amazing! I really hope I get this, this is probably the blackberry that will take RIM out of the gutter!

I'd love to win this phone as I have the 9700 atm, used to have a HD2 but the 9700 has converted me to crackberry's, do miss the touch screen though but the amazing Bold keyboard more than makes up for this, combining both makes the perfect device!

I'd love to have this! Best of both worlds. Touch Screen, and what seems to be an evolution of the 9000 form factor we all know and loved. I'm locked into contract for another year, so this contest is likely the only fiscally feasible way I'm going to be able to get one...please help!

I owned a 9000 and I loved the form factor. I upgraded to a 9700 but I liked the 9000 better because the screen and keyboard was bigger.

I would LOVE a Bold 9900. Thanks CB!

-Rich

Always a qwerty keyboard lover, yet not bad to have touch screen.
Will get it sooner or later.LOL
I'm dying for it~Please Crackberry!

dear lovely crackberry,
you would make my year by giving the beloved bb 9900 to me. in my opinion it is just the perfect combination between a business and multimedia phone and everything what all the blackberries from the last years should have been and now, finally, rim put out a device that can compete and i would love to be proud of RIM again and to show my friends and collegues that RIM is like a phenix!

In a class I am taking at my college, I was assigned to present a goal that is non academic to complete by the end of the semester. My original goal was to get a new BlackBerry, but due to financial issues with my car, and only means for transportation dying I was unable to complete my goal.

If I am chosen it will not help me get a good grade, but will bring some satisfaction that I did complete my goal.

Good luck everyone.

Gotta say, loving how sharp the screen looks. Thinness and better build quality with the steel frame is looking awesome.

I know that there are going to be thousands of entries here but this is such an awesome phone that I need to try this!

OMG. I was totally in love with my old Bold 9000. It was so great. I can't wait for the 9900 to be available in Belgium... I have actually the Torch but the processor is a little short and the keyboard will be as great as on the 9000.... Please ;) Choose me

PLEASE! I need a new blackberry. Mines broke last week & I am running a old curve!!!!!8300 I think :'( I have been obsessing over the 9900/9930 for sooooo long!! I NEED it! I would be nothing w/o this BB

my dream phone! I especially love that all the haters say that a blackberry with a fast processor and high resolution screen would mean that battery life would be as bad as android, yet battery life on this thing will be as good, if not better than the current blackberrys!! I also love that there is finally a touchscreen! I need a 9930 ASAP!!!!

I was going to wait for the Torch 2, but I think one of these Bolds would be best for me; coming from using a 9630 Tour. I like the built in type, with screen, and adding ability to use touch on the screen will make the use of the Blackberry that much better. Hey-ohhh! I would love to have one of the Bolds 9900 or 9930!!!

I now no way to win this because there will be thousands of posts but always triying is good.

Sign me up. This would be an awesome replacement for my fiance's 9700.
Here's hoping for my first win at Crackberry.

I want the Bold 9900 please!! It has the best keyboard ever which is a must for me and the touchscreen is a very convenient option of navigation. Also, i love how snappy this phone is. Please, i really want it.

I KNEW a contest was approaching :D
Awesome.
Its Time to Upgrade my Javelin. Ive always wanted a BB with a Keyboard AND a touchscreen in the traditional form factor.
hope i win. *crosses fingers*

I'm the last of a dying breed, I NEED to get rid of my flip phone!! Seriously! Who still has a freaking flip phone?! Help me out crackberry!

I love the Torch before the best of both world for the touch screen and keyboard and now we have better then best of both world with the 9000 form factor keyboard and higher resolution. Win for RIM.

Love the touch/keyboard/track pad combo of my Torch... Extending that ease of usability to the Bold form factor is a BB game changer, time to start positioning for an upgrade with my carrier ;)

Bold fan talking here, I'd love to get my hands on either one of these new BB Bold. Plus OS 7 seems nice. Hope I could win one & with an AZERTY keyboard :P

I am so excited about this announcement! I have been a bb owner for a few years and i am definitely hooked! This phone would be perfect! It would surely compliment my playbook!
pick me pick me pick me!

Hey! I was an Apple addict, and was going to buy Torch, but when I saw THIS, THIS Blackberry is amazing! This the most beautiful Blackberry I have ever seen! P.S Russia loves Blackberry!

Loving the new touch screen on the Bold been waiting for it for a loooong time. I've been hearing alot of complaints about people thinking that crackberry run these contests but doesn't actually give out a prize. If I win I will make a video of my unboxing from crackberry and post it on twitter and facebook. This will let the world know you guys are true to your word!!!

Loving the phone. Would prefer this over the full touch BB because the screen real estate is comparable once you realize how much space the virtual keyboard takes up. & I am using my keyboard 99% of the time I'm on my BB. Touch only for quick icon, zooming, swiping though pics or notification access (& other quick simple things used that 1% of the time when I'm not on the keyboard lol)
Now, gimme gimme!

Looks great! Hopefully, I win so when I gesture and tap the screen, it will work. For some odd reason, my 9650 just won't respond like my PB does....hehehe.

I love my keyboard on my 9630 but also want a touch screen! This phone will give me both! I love blackberry and I'm glad they're finally putting out a product like this :)

This phone looks epic! I want one so bad! The only way I won't want it is if the new generation Storm is all that it's rumored to be!

Would love the new Bold! Gonna be tough to wait for it! I'm excited about blackberry 7.0 the most. And that keyboard :)

Now that Verizon says my 9650 is obsolete, a new Bold would sure be wonderful to have!!!

Ahh, can't wait for this BB to come out! Been dying for this one since I heard about it. Keyboard + touch screen? OMG. Best BB ever. :D SO want this to be my next BB! I love my current Bold 9700, but I've had a few problems with the last two replacements I've gotten, so I could totally use a newer, better Bold! :)

Having a new device makes this worth the look and feel of this precious new bold makes everyone feel attracted to it, a great adition

I would love the bold touch, especially since my 9650 won't be getting OS 7 :( it would be a great match for my nice new playbook too :)

Just joined the Blackberry family from windows. The new bold looks great and an upgrade is most welcomed !! :)

Well, I would love to win this phone!!

:D

To spice up my post a bit... I love it for its touch screen (duh!), speed (duh!), NFC (duh!) and OS 7 (DUH!!)...

I'll take one, going to love the touch screen for nav, and keyboard for typing. Tired of handing people my phone and them touching the screen thinking its touch (bold 9650)
