Torch 9860! I use a BB for work and all they get us is the bottom of the barrel, cheapest BB's they can find. I would love to be the envy of the office rolling through with this HOT phone!

Seems to be the two popular. I'd like to try the Bold 9900 as I have a torch now. The torch is great but just want to try something new. (I know tons of upgrades)

I want a 9900. I wanna feel the super ergonomics keypad that you wrote on the review. OS 7 would be nice too. ;)

I'm looking forward to switching back to BB from Android....just waiting for the 9930 to come out on Sprint and I'll be there....Looking at buying it outright, but to win one would really be sweet!

Bold 9930 please!!! Unfortunately I jumped into the Android bandwagon. I miss blackberry bbm, push notification and having a phone with a good battery life. I used my upgrade so I'm stuck with this phone for 16 more months .

I would love to say all of them, but honestly, I'd love to try the 9850/9860 (which ever is GSM). I wanna give BB another chance at a touch screen seeing as I had a Storm, and when I could, I got the Torch from work lol.

OMG crackberry you guys are the best, one of the most generous blogs ever, nuff said I prefer having the 9850/9860 to replace my storm 2 which is already passe it's retirement age, thankyouuuuu crackberry

I would love to have either one of the new Torches. Would be a great addition to the long line of BB devices I have have and had.

pls crackberry, i have to wait at least to end of september here in switzerland. a 9900 would be very nice :D

Winning a 9930 would just be great! It will help me type way more accurately and faster than on my Droid X for sure!

Thanks Crackberry!

How bad do I want the 9930!!?!?!??? VERY! It is a great combination of all you could possibly love for a smartphone, let alone a BB!!! I have waited for the moment these devices would roll out and these are must haves, until QNX, ;)
Hopin to get that email in a few days sayin, "Congratulations"

Good luck to all!

T-Mo Bold 9900 b/c its the BlackBerry that I've been waiting for and have been describing as my ultimate combination of features for years now.

It has been six months since I bought my Bold 9780, I think it's about time to update the whole BlackBerry experience, and what would be better than a brand new Bold 9900 totally free given by the awesome team of CrackBerry!! Wuuuuuu I want to be the winner! Big BlackBerry fan all the way from Ecuador. GRACIAS CrackBerry!!

Maybe a 9860....or maybe a 9810 so I can give it to my girlfriend so she can replace her painfully slow 9800 and keep up with my 9900.......I can't decide!?!?!!???!!

Yay I'm in :) I'd love a 9930 bc I have to switch to vzn and they don't have anything else that really interests me... Not to mentioon I'm absolutely broke hahahah

I'd like to upgrade to a new Torch (9860), BB 7 looks awesome! I'll even trade/give my 9800 to someone less fortunate if I do win! Crackberry is still the site I visit most frequently, keep up the good work and keep the comps coming!

I'd love a bold 9900 because I just flushed my 9700 :(
Also it's my 18th on the 23/8 so...i'm just sayin' a gift is usually customary.

one Torch 9860 please, so I can duel wield with my Storm 2...imagine the mayhem I could cause with 2 touchscreen BBs in my mighty hands...Playing Angry farm while using the latest fart app...good times man....

I was sold when i held my first blackberry 8900 curve. I owned an iphone but later got a blackberry because of the physical keyboard, led indicator (all colors of the rainbow, lol) , email capability, brickbreaker, poker lol, trackball (still works), blackberry logo, bbm, loud speaker for alarm to wake me up for work lol. My roomate gets annoyed becauce i won't wake up to turn it off, lol. Too much to list this comment box is too small, lol.

The 9900 would be my pick out of the rest but i would love to have them all. The new bold will be my second berry. I can't imagine being exactly like kevin holding it in my hand for the first time, lol. I may turn over someones grave or slap my girlfriend, lol. I will have the best of both touch screen and physical keyboard (with tmobile, don't have the torch 9800 :-( ). It will be my new boldcurve 10.0, SOLID!!!
Thanks to kevin and his first open box video, made me wanna cheat on my curve for that sexy slim bold and her functions (if you know what i mean)...lol.

SO LET ME HAVE MY CRACK.....BOLDBERRY, LMBO!!

I want a lightning fast touch berry so when I win it I can parade around town with my Crackberry.com is #1 shirt and a CB sticker plastered on the battery door of this awesome device!

Has to be the 9900! new twist on one of the best phones in blackberry history!!! Amazing Keyboard, and TOUCH SCREEN! doesn't get any better then that!

I would love me a BlackBerry Torch 9850 for several reasons

1st - My Storm2 needs serious replacing 'cause it's got a cracked screen.
2nd - Verizon doesn't get this phone and I'm uber bummed out about that.
3rd - I would love to use this as a means to express how the"RIMpire stikes back"

Finito

I want to tell u that crackberry.com is my most visited site on my torch and desktop browser and that I love u kevin michaluk, bl1aze, adam, and joseph. I've never owned any other kind of phone other than a bb, and I know for a fact that that's never going to change no matter what happens to rim or blackberry.
The bold 9900 is my baby. I would marry it if it was a woman, and I think its sexier than any other woman I've ever seen. I'm madly in love and I would love if u made my love dream come true.
Btw don't worry I'm not a freak, but I've never wanted a phone so badly like this.
I will always love u crackberry and rim and bb, and I would love it if I were to win this contest.
Thank you!

Torch 9860 for the screen size and the media features. Love the idea of an HD camera too and the 9860 would show the benefits of that the best.

As hard as this choice is, I think I'm going to go with the Torch 9810!

I just love that form factor!

PLEASE PICK ME!!!!!!

Would love to win the Bold Touch as I have always owned every Bold series phone and want to continue the trend! I also gotta have Blackberry OS7!! ^.^

I would like the bold 9900 because I have been without a blackberry for two years now and I would love to be back the BB train

Winning a Bold 9900 from Crackberry would be fantastic, because you're the single reason why I know about the new Blackberries and can't imagine getting any other phone anymore.

About 2 months ago I started looking for a replacement for the Android phone I'm currently using. It's a nice device but just not the right one for me.
I knew I needed a full keyboard so I started googling around and some Blackberries popped up in my search. I've never owned a Blackberry before, needed more information and eventually ended up on Crackberry.com where I read about the OS 7 devices for the first time. It didn't take long before I became a daily visitor to Crackberry and the forums. I love the community and I'm thankful for everything I've learned from the users so far.

In July I made the decision to get myself the Bold 9900 as a Birthday present. My Birthday has passed (August 16th) and unfortunately it still hasn't been released in my country (Germany). So now I'm not so patiently waiting for any of the carriers/retailers to finally get it.

I hope I get lucky in this contest. This would be 2 firsts for me: Owning a Blackberry and winning something. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.

Hey guys!!!!! SOOO EXITED!!!!!
I want the blackberry bold 9900 so badly!! Why? Because I'm sick of my curve and I want to expirience atleast one time a high end smartphone!! I'm a huge blackberry addict but I think I can be more of an abuser if I get the bold!
Anyways I love the amazing keybord, the touch screen and its over all thiness!!
I LOVE BLACKBERRY BOLD 9900!!!!! BB FTW! =D

I want a free BlackBerry Bold 9900 bcos its my birthday in 2 weeks time and its been so long since I received a birthday gift ......

I would love to win a new device. I have been a die hard crack/blackberry user for over 3 years now and my bold 9000, which is hanging on by a thread, needs an upgrade to the 9900. PICK MEE CRACKBERRY KEV!!!

I would love to have a touch scrren phone along with the option to use a keyboard. The 9930 would be great for me!

I would love the 9900, its a touchscreen, beautiful resolution, and the best keyboard available on a device! I need one, my Black!erry fix needs it.

i would love a bb torch 9850, i have a bb storm 1 for years now still going strong but i been out of work for two years now, don't have the the money for a new one ..

I want the 9930. I'm coming back from ANDROID. THAT'S RIGHT. I'M LEAVING ANDROID TO GET A 9930. I was a BB user until I bought Droid X. I've had enough of that.

PLEASE!

I switched to Sprint in May and gave up my BB for an Android phone. I like the touch features of the phone but I am SO ready to go back to BB and would love to try the Torch 9850.

Phone: Blackberry Bold 9900
Reason: I've been following it's development from the moments of it's conception, over 9 months egarly anticipating it's birth. (did i mention? it weighs 130 grams? healthy tech!)
humble geek. :D

The 9860 is my choice. I think it will be a great phone to practisewith for the future QNX phones when they are released. The form factor is perfect for messaging and emailing while I sit back and watch a live NFL game on my Playbook.

The new BB 9930 is a dream device for anyone!!! touch and keyboard (mind you the best keyboard in the market!!!) together make for the best device from RIM ever!

I have just recently fell in love with Blackberry as of September 12, 2010, before the news of the Blackberry 7 devices even surfaced. On September 12, 2010 I purchased the best phone device ever, in my opinion, which was the Blackberry Torch 9800. Specs include 5MP camera, 624 mhz processor, 360 x 480 resolution, 512MB of RAM, and 4G of internal memory with expandable mcroSD slot to supported up to an extra 32G. Reading rumors of new Blackberry devices possibly released in 3Q of 2011 made me feel like my phone was already outdated. Getting closer to the 3Q of 2011 more and more solid information surfaced as to what new devices were going to be released by Blackberry. As soon as they announced the Bold 9900/9930 which had a processor almost twice as fast, liquid graphics which allowed a clearer resolution on the screen, and twice as much internal memory, just to name a few specs, made me feel like I had to get it. Once rumors about a possible Torch 2 were clarified, it was definitely a "must have" for me. The phone I would LOVE to have in my possession would be the Blackberry Torch 9810. The quite impressive 1.2 ghz processor doubles the speed of the Blackberry 9800. Other specs of the Blackberry Torch 9810 includes: Blackberry 7 OS, 768MB of RAM, 8G of internal with expandable microSD slot to support up to 36G of memory, 720 HD video recording, HSPA+ high speeds to support up to 14.4 mbs (which is TRUE 4G), voice activated search, and 720 x 640 screen resolution. Quite a leap from the original Blackberry Torch 9800 which set the bar for Blackberrys' combination of the QWERTY keyboard and the touch screen experience. While keeping the innovative slider screen from the Torch 9800, the Torch 9810 is proven to be a spectacle once released.

I would love a Bold 9930! The touch screen matched with the qwerty is genius, also the processor speed is 10x better than my curve 3g.

I'd like to win a Blackberry Bold 9900 cuz I love Crackberry! OS7 is such an improvement from OS6 and the touch screen combined with a full nice QWERTY keyboard is pure cracky bliss!

I would love a Blackberry 9930 because it would be an amazing upgrade to my curent Blackberry. I have been missing my Bold 9000 since the day I traded it in. When I traded up to a 9700 I felt like I had stepped down becuase of the size difference. To have this sleek new Blackberry in my hands would be a dream come true.

Thanks ShopCrackberry.com

I want a bb bold 9900! Love how its thinner then the 9700 and has the keyboard more similar to the 9000. It has the highest review on Crackberry compared to the other Blackberry 7 devices and its a device worth to win!

I would liek to have a Torch 9860 because I am so SICK of my Storm 2 breaking and having to be replaced!!!

I'd love to win the bold 9900. Why?? Because I still own a curve 8530 and I'm starting college this September so getting a new phone would be awesome since I can't afford buying one off contract and my contract doesn't end till june 2013. And even if I could buy one off contract, the place I live always gets the phone later then the release date.

i would absolute love a BB Torch 9810, with its super past processor and liquid graphics, ill possibly have all my social apps running along with my awesomeness music without being worried off my BB slowing down! woop!

I love Blackberry and i had had maybe all device jejejeje, i love the tecnology and i`d like to win a 9900 i`m fans number one of Blackberry and this device is beatufull, i`m goint to be to mahe a change because i have a Torch 9800 and now i want 9900

I am in dire need of a new BB9900!! Come on crackberry hook it up! In a real way I am contract bound to my current device for 6 more months and want some 9900 love now!

Rockin my Torch 9800, and lovin' it....but ready for something new. love to get my hand on a 9900!

Thanks for the opportunity!

Crackberry.com is #1....

I want a bold 9900 that works on Wind mobile please! Great reviews on the bb 7 devices from the crackberry team.

I want to have a Bold 9900 because it seems like its the stepping stone to the future of RIM. A succesfull RIM. After being stuck with a Storm II for 12 months i need this device to keep my RIM-faith;)

I want a BlackBerry 9900 because it's the most aesthetically pleasing phone I've ever seen and I'd become one of those iOS to BB converters!

I NEED a BlackBerry 9900. Its the Cadillac of ALL Blackberrys! Love the site and store keep up the great work!

I would love to win the Bold 9900! Blackberry's famous keyboard along with a touchscreen? Genius! I'm currently rocking a 9700 and it's definitely aging. The new Torch(s) are great but it's hard to find a good case for the sliding Torch and an all touch screen phone just isn't for me. I NEED that physical keyboard. Thanks Crackberry!

I would love to win a Bold 9900. Last Blackberry I've had was a 9000 and this phone brings back good memories since I've dealt with countless iPhones and Droids since.

Why do I want the BlackBerry Torch 9850? Clearly I see that every CrackBerry enthusiast loves the Bold 9900/9930. Of course I love it too, it is the Bugatti Veyron of BlackBerrys. But look at the Smartphone market. What is the most popular type of device? The iPhone, HTC EVO 4G, etc. Full touchscreen form factors are what is driving the market. I would not argue that in my personal opinion, the bar style, full keyboard and screen above (classic BlackBerry form), is the most efficient communication device and all of CrackBerry nation loves that form factor. But all of Smartphone nation loves the full touchscreen form factor. That is why I am happy that we finally have that. The Storm was the right idea but it wasn't fully there,

I finally want everything I love about BB on the beautifully full and large touchscreen!

I love the Torch 9850!!!

8100>8830>9670>/\/\/\/\9850(I hope)/\/\/\/\PlayBookin!

the 9900 is the phone for me bc it combines the best of both (touch and board). it is the ULTIMATE berry and i never thought i would see a wide keyboard back on a berry again. won't get rid of my 9000 just because of the keyboard. ready to experience ULTRA FAST TYPING again. not to mention how it shows up ALL and ANY other phone on the market with a keyboard, INCLUDING slider phones!!

Have an outdated 8310 curve right now, would really appreciate an upgrade to a Bold 9900 thanks

I would like the 9810 for Rogers. Why? It's simple.

The year was 1989. I was 6 years old and I had a dream. In that dream my mother was being pulled away by a zombie name Gordie and was held captive in an underwater chamber filled with bats and MASH posters. In this dream I was eating a bowl of Pro Stars cereal in a Winnebago in a rye field and my dad was building a model airplane out of popsicle sticks at the table across from me.

All of a sudden there was monophonic sound mysteriously coming from his pocket to the tune of Always by Bon Jovi. He pulled out the Blackberry Torch 9810. It was my mother, from her 9810. We drove and saved her.

I knew this phone was coming. I've drawn images of it for 22 years. A premonition. I must have it.

Dear Crackberry Gods,

Please pick me to get a new OS 7 device. If you pick me, I promise to login EVERYDAY and spread Crackberry's good Word to the lost iphone and droid souls.
In Its 9810's Awesomeness I pray...

AMEN.

I want a Bold 9900 because my 9000 is on its last legs. This phone is the greatest smartphone on the market... you'd be foolish NOT to want it.

I love the power of the BB7 phones.

And the 9810 is awesome, the best of the best.

And the perfect supplements to my Playbook.

PS: I hate all the IPhones, BlackBerry is the only one!!!

I want the Blackberry Bold 9900 because my BB 9000 isn't sexy enough anymore. I want to touch and type my drunk texts.

I would love to have a Blackberry Bold 9900 because I've been drooling over it ever since it appeared on Crackberry!

My dream BlackBerry has always been the 9930. I always wished for a 9000 on Verizon with a trackpad and touchscreen and now its here!

I will be buying a Blackberry 9860 when they finally release the product ... probably on August 29th from Telus.

But I will welcome a 9810 ... just to calm down the jealous people around.

I really want the new Bold 9900, because I'm a big fan a Blackberry, and I love the look & the keyboard of the new bold & I'd love to win it !

i own 9700 bold and really love the phone and love to get my hands on the 9860/9850 for the reason is a full touch screen and is better for my eyes to view on what im seeing my 9700 screen is to small for my eyes!!!! thanks blackberry for coming out with this phone

Oooh! A 9900 for me. I have always said that the Bold form with a touch screen would be the ideal BB for me.

Although I would love a Torch to burn out the nasty storm taste in my mouth, I would like the 9930 w/ VZW. I currently own a 9650 and have gotten used to using the qwerty keyboard. A larger keyboard & faster processor would be a nice upgrade for me. :-D
Also, having a premium version of Documents 2go is a +++++++

YES PLEASE! :D
I'd LOVE to have the Bold 9900 because I currently have a 9700 and as heavily as I use it and the demand I put on it throughout the day, many times it struggles to keep up, and battery pulls aren't quite bringing it back to par. I have the latest version of software from my carrier so it's not an OS issue. I just need it to be snappier, more responsive. I love the feel of my current Bold but my buddy's 9000 Bold pretty nice too in that it was better to type on. For the amount I rely on my phone now, I could really use the new Bold 9900.

PLUS, I'm trying to convert my boss (older, non techie guy) into the crackberry world and get him to see the light, and I deff think this would help. He's seen how much I have integrated it into our work (HVAC field tech) and likes how it's improved efficiency, but he's reluctant to take the plunge...and even considering an Android -BOOO! (Not hating, just not as wonderful as a blackberry)
I'd be willing to even give it to him if I won this one....or maybe just give him mine and keep the 9900 for myself :D
Life would be GRAND if I won this one tho :D

BlackBerry 9930 Bold has been my choice from day one & with new technology & operating system (OS) BlackBerry will be the best & years to come with ideas that will blow other phones carriers away with new technology.

I would love to toss this old dinosaur...the 9000!I'm obsessed with the bolds and want one that doesn't require a 2x a day battery pull!! Please!!

I sure hope I win the 9930 for Verizon. Why? Because my current storm2 has a cracked screen, I dnt want to sign another two year contract (cnt afford to pay full price) ohh and it was my bday Aug. 3! Thank you CrackBerry!

I would like to have the BB Bold 9900 please, to replace my old BB Curve 8520. I used to be an iPhone user, but when I switched to BB I felt it was the smartest move ever! I just love BB. Please choose me. Gusto ko ng 9900 (I want a 9900) :)

I want the Blackberry Bold 9900. I currently have the 9700 always run out of spaces because of the mediocre 256 MB internal memory. Having the 9900 will be perfect because I'll have more internal memory and will be able to navigate easier with the touchscreen.

I would love to win a BOLD 9900 because the blend of the full keyboard & touchscreen is a BB owners dream! Not to mention as a new dad & middle school guidance counselor my Berry does double duty, keeping track of not only my personal life but parent/teacher meetings & other school functions too, so please hook this busy guy up!

bold 9930 because i love the form factor and the innovation of the touch screen, which just makes a great device even more awesome. i use my blackberry for everything from jotting down lyrics and ideas for poetry and songs i compose as well as my main communication device between myself and my instructors for my college courses through email. Being in a financial rut at the moment this may be my only chance to upgrade to a more dependable device for a while, seeing as my current 9650 has been replaced numerous times for consistent problems...hope i win, good luck to everyone.

I would LOVE to win a 9930. I have become a huge fan of BlackBerry ever since I got my first 8330. I now have a 9650 and can't upgrade until a year from now and I can't wait that long.

Trust me! I could get by just fine with either the Blackberry Bold 9930 or the Blackberry Torch 9850 after many years of service from my Nextel based Blackberry 8350i. Should I not be the lucky winner, then one day they very well may need to pry the 8350i from my dead, cold, left hand!

9850...I looooved my first storm and my only dislike was the surepress and the laggy responsiveness...I deserve it!

I would love to have a Torch 9850 as I love the full touch. I currently have the Storm 2 and want to upgrade

I fell in love with my curve ever since I got it, but now its time for a change and what better way than with a torch 9860, a phone that's gonna kick android and iphone in the ass!! Gimme the touch screen!!!

I'd love to have a Bold 9930. It's absolutely magnificent and has all of the good of BlackBerry in one device. There would be nothing more wonderful to upgrade my 9650 to that work of art.

I would like a BlackBerry Torch 9810. It's a nice looking big screen with a qwerty keyboard. I have a BlackBerry 9700 and I am quite tired that the browser crashing every time.

I would love to win the blackberry 9900 because I have held on to my bold 9000 due to t having the best keyboard EVER and the fact that the 9900 has an even better keyboard plus a touchscreen is mind blowing!!!!!

I cannot WAIT to get my hands on the 9850! I have had other feature phones before but my FIRST smartphone was the STORM...needless to say, IT WAS LOVE AT FIRST Touch (press?)! I have been in love with blackberry EVER SINCE...I'VE used the iphone-a slow toy (HATED IT!)...I had the DroidX-stupid INCOMPLETE interface always restarting or freezing (HATED IT!). FINALLY, I got a bold in August and feel COMPLETE again! It may not be touch or my old Storm BUT it is still a BLACKBERRY and my life is back to normal...NOW IF I CAN JUST GET A 9850!?!
KMS

Love the 9800. Best of both. 9810 will be a awesome upgrade. Will be amazing to win one as it takes a while to get new upgrages in South Africa, specially if you are a tech junky.

Why? Because the OS 7 and BB Bold 9900 is by far the best phone made to date! Keyboard, touch screen...live is all gooooood!!!!

BlackBerry Bold 9900 is my dream !
It look awesome with the new keyboard and touchscreen!

Plesase make my dream reality :-)

You guys here @ crackberry.com are the BEST! I'm in need of the BlackBerry Bold 9900! It is the best BlackBerry to date and from the amazing reviews posted here I just want this phone more!!!

I currently have a blackberry curve 8530 with sprint. i would love to own the bold 9930 for sprint! my first smartphone was a blackberry then i switched to an android phone and hated it! i sent it back to sprint and got the curve. I have now owned the curve for 2 years and i am officially a blackberry addict! i would love to win the new bold because then I wouldn't have to extend my contract with sprint!!

Please choose me! I want a BlackBerry Bold 9930. This would be my first BlackBerry and smartphone ever! I'm sick and tired of using feature phones and android and ios aren't cutting it. I want a phone that can do it all. I would really appreciate it if you chose me it would be awesome! Crackberry forever! The keyboard, the specs, and that screen :) Best phone hands down

I would love to have a blackberry bold 9930, the moment I read 720p and 5MP I fell for this BB. One other reason I would want this BB is because I have a great cdma smartphone data plan and I know using the BB with my plan is gonna be sensational. I love the fact that you can use the qwerty keyboard and at the same time you can have a touchscreen phone. And last but not least, I think it's about time to change my phone. (it's too old)^^

I'd like a Blackberry Bold 9900 because I've been without a berry ever since I woke up about a month ago at 4 am in New York City sleeping next to 5 hobos and discovered I lost my faithful 9800.

9900 PLEASE!!! OH MY GOSH OH MY GOSH OH MY GOSH OH MY GOSH OH MY GOSH OH MY GOSH OH MY GOSH OH MY GOSH OH MY GOSH OH MY GOSH OH MY GOSH OH MY GOSH OH MY GOSH!!!

A Torch 9850. Just purchased a Bold 9930 on Big Red for work, and would love to compliment it with the full touch screen for personal use while we wait for the Colt, etc.

I want the 9850. The storm 2 brought a touchscreen guy like me to Blackberry almost two years ago on Verizon. It definielty has changed my mobile life with all its funcionality. My Storm2 or "black beauty" as I call it is have been through alot and its on its last leg and a upgrade to a new BB experince would be much appreciated. I know the Torch 9850 can deliver it and continue my relationship with BB that my girlfriend (iphone) despises lol.

Help a fellow Canadian get his hands on a Bold 9900. I've been trucking along with my sturdy Bold 9700 since the first day it came out, and it's been a workhorse. Hoping that the new Bold will be able to tackle all my business requirements as well as all the fun social aspects of my BlackBerry life.

I am a BlackBerry user for 5 years and I really want the new BB 9900/9930 for its speed, elegance and power. It's a marriage between brilliance and beauty in one device!

Proud owner of BB 7100t, 8100, 8350, 8520, 9700

I'll take the 9810, i've been working with Augmented Reality and it sucks that i use the PB to show the presentation in SWF, but my 9800 doesn't have a compass so i demoed with Android and iOS4

Torch 9810 please> to replace my 9800 that I love so much but would love even more with increase speed and improved performance.

It would be incredible to be able to win the BlackBerry Bold 9900, but I would not want to win this for myself, but for my father. He's in his late 50s and has never owned a smartphone since immigrating to Canada. I guess the best phone he's ever used was merely a Samsung Instinct, but that phone has been long gone. Now, he simply uses a cheap, purple, no name flip phone that doesn't even have a coloured screen. And it's not like he isn't tech savvy. He's a computer engineer so he does know quite a bit about computers and technology. So the fact that he has such an obsolete phone does impact him daily, and yeah, he can wait out till the end of his phone contract, but if I were able to gift him a BlackBerry Bold 9900, and see the look on his face, and thinking about absolutely everything he has ever done for me, it'll simply be the best gift ever. You see, my family has been through a lot, coming from Vietnam after the Vietnam War, my dad was labeled as a refugee. Through years in refugee camps, and traveling long distances by boat, I am extremely lucky, and therefore grateful that my father worked so hard to get to where we are today. My father came to Canada with not a penny in his pocket, and while doing hard labour to support his family of four, he was also going back to school because Canada didn't recongnize his Vietnamese university degree. So right off the bat, he's working full-time, to pay for his schooling, his housing, and his family of four. Now to put this in perspective, an average citizen usually starts working, and making money for themselves at around 14-16, but probably had an allowance of some sort. My dad started working here in Canada when he was in his mid 30s, and starting with absolutely nothing. Taking a look at where my family is right now, I can truly say that my dad is a superhero. All his hardwork were 100% selfless, and were completely meant to start a new life here in Canada, after his homeland was devesated by war. Today, my dad is a computer engineer, my mother owns a restaurant, my oldest sister is in corperate business, my older sister has become a teacher, and I myself, is in school to become a medical doctor, and it was all thanks to him. It was near impossible to escape the war safely, it was near impossible to learn English while living in Canada, it was near impossible for him to get back into university, it was near impossible for him to support his family, and education, it was near impossible for him to find a decent engineering job, and it was near impossible for him to be where he is at right now... But he did it all. To conclude, I'm not here asking to win the BlackBerry Bold 9900 because of its specifications, its touchscreen, its thin design, its keyboard, nor its communication capablilties, but I'm here telling you and everyone else reading this that my father deserves everything he wants because he worked four times as hard as any average person, and as his son, I think receiving this smartphone and to be able to whole-heartedly give it to my after is the least I can do to thank him.

i want a 9900 because i just moved to canada to waterloo and now i don't have a phones i just to have a blackberry bold but an old one back in mexico and i just arrived here and i want this brand new blackberry bold 9900 because i love blackberry and i need to try this new blackberry 7 and i don't have money for a new blackberry

i'd love a brand spanking new 9850 from Verizon to replace my 9550 that long over due to be taken out back and beat like the red-headed stepchild it is.

Another awesome contest! Definitely want the new Torch 9810! Love the full touch screen while still having the physical keyboard!

Wow already 1301 comments, and this post hasn't been up that long! That shows you just haw popular BB's are. I was hoping there would be anither contest. I'm sitting here trying to think........Should I tell a sad story.....should I tell an inspirational story of how my Blackberry has changed my life.......should I compose a balad ? In the end I decided it is probably all up to chance anyway. Though I could do any or all of those previously mentioned because BB's are awsome. I would love to have the 9930 (on VZ). In a previous post for a contest I said "on day you will be mine" or something to that effect. I think it is just an awsome device. Unfortunatly I have to wait till 11-17-12 to get a new device. I got my 9650 because my Tour was falling apart and couldn't wait till my contract was up. Loved my Tour. Oh well such is life I guess. Thanks as always for all the oprotunities to win the great contests, and for all the effort everyone puts into this site (users as well).

I would really like to have Torch 9850, since I am on Verizon. My Storm 2 needs a serious upgrade now, otherwise I may have to look into the Samsung Galaxy S2. On Verizon Samsung Function or Stratosphere, whichever it's going to be called. It would be good Bday gift since mine is last day of August.

would love to win the verizon bold 9930. Touch screen and physical keyboard, go together, just like peanut butter and jelly

I CANNOT WAIT TO GET MY ANXIOUS FINGERS ON ONE OF THOSE BB BOLD 9900!!! Keyboard, Touchscreen, and a 1.2 bad@ss making things happen... My life is sooo close to completion!

want the 9900 so desperately bad! the keyboard stutter of the 9780 is killing me, and with the amount of typing I do (emails, sms, and what not) i could really benefit from an even better keyboard :D

I want a Bold 9930 because this is the phone I've been waiting for from Blackberry. A touch screen with a great keyboard, and super fast.

I would love the Bold 9930 because the phone seems amazing and would like to go back to using QWERTY!

I would love to get the new blackberry bold 9900, with the new touch screen and full qwerty keyboard it has a nice professional look. the blackberry bold 9900 is the best of the both worlds

9900! Why? I am with T-Mobile. Was using a Bold 9700. Went over to HTC HD7 Windows phone to see if the "grass was greener on the other side". It wasn't. I missed my physical keyboard too much! Came back to my lovable BB 9700.

PS: Selling my HD7 to save up for the 9900 but I hope the $350 price of getting one is not true or I'll just have to wait till the price goes down... or.... (crossing my fingers) win one. ;)

I would love to have the new Bold 9930. I've had the Curve 8330 & 8530 and liked them. But, the speed & power of the 9930 would be the perfect upgrade.

Torch 9860 because i think it is going to be the best BB phone ever since i don't care about the physical Keyboard.

Another terrific contest from CrackBerry. I would love to win my very own 9930 to upgrade my current Bold. It will be a perfect compliment to my Playbook for use both at work and home. I would love the new features like HD video for recording my families 'antics'. Thanks again CrackBerry.

Me me me!!!
My screen for my 9700 broke the other day and I'm now wanting a replacement for it. The 9900 would do the trick just perfectly! I love BlackBerry but between the broken screen and the spinning clock I just don't think I can last too much longer before smashing it against a wall...

Also it would make a great a birthday gift : )

I love to have a 9930 as an upgrade from my Blackberry tour with it's outdated operating sysem and trackball. The best part of the new 9930 to me is the large full qwerty keyboard/touch screen/OS7/and last but not least the track pad!

I would love to win, I was torn between a 9860 and a 9900. But after seeing Kevin's review and excitement I am sold on the 9900.

I hope I can win a 9900.

My team just qualified for the Champions League so there is nothing else I could wish for. Still, somehow I feel like I am not done with the wishes so I would really like to get my hands on a new Bold 9900. After all, It IS the best smartphone in the world, right?

I would love to get my hands on a 9950 since I've been through the Storm 1 and 2 and would love to have a full touch BB!

BlackBerry Bold 9900. I've been mugged of one BlackBerry (9700) in June. Clumsy and I lost my backup BlackBerry two weeks later, and have now been patiently..patiently waiting for AT&T to release the phone! BlackBerry till I die.

Ok I NEED a BB9900 for my gf now. She keeps threatening to steal mine... so please Crackberry, please help me keep my soon be fiance (proposing in November) happy so we can start the engaged time together as peaceful as possible
