Contest: Leave a comment to this post for your chance to win $250 in BlackBerry Accessories from!!

Best BlackBerry Blog 2010

I'm one of those guys who believes in the power of positive thinking, so even on the day launched publicly and we had a grand total of five members our tag line was already the #1 Site for BlackBerry Users (& Abusers!). That said, it's always nice to receive external validation that we're doing a good job (despite our occassional spelling mistakes and naughty posts), so I'm happy to announce was named the Best BlackBerry Blog in the 2010 Wirefly Awards. The finalists were user nominated and the voting was by the people, so it's pretty awesome that captured over 87% of the votes. Of course, that leaves us 13% of room to improve upon for 2011, so we'll be working hard to kick things up another notch around here.

Contest - Win $250 in Accessories from CrackBerry got some prizes for winning this award from Wirefly... in addition to featuring on their site for the year they've hooked us up with a check for $250. We decided we'd take that money and give it back to a lucky member of the CrackBerry community via a $250 shopping spree in the Accessory store! To enter, just leave a comment to this blog post and you're entered to win. Only one entry per member please. Contest ends this Sunday,  May 23rd at midnight pst. Good luck!!!

CrackBerry Named Best BlackBerry Blog in 2010 Wirefly Awards; Contest: We're Giving Our Prize to You!



crackberry has helped me meeting new people and people now come to me for help with there blackberrys. i just love helping people

thanks crackberry

$250 in accessories? Yeah, I could spend that easily!

Congrats, CrackBerry, on the #1 ranking! Woot!

I"ve been reading since April...waiting on the 9650 as my first bb...learned a lot since..and will keep on reading once I get my bb...thanks...oh by the way could use the $250 for my new bb when i get it...

CB IS the best BB site ever! Who would have ever thought we could be as hooked as we are on a website. I love this place; the forums, news, free wallpapers, ringtones and a whole load of other great stuff. Its no wonder its the best. Keep up the great work!

I work in the non-profit industry and run into BB users every day at wrok. The only constant question that comes out of my lips is "have you ever been to". It's suprising how many people have never heard of it. Well...I make sure they all do. I've loved this place ever since my Verizon sales person told me about it. ROCK ON!!! and just remember...YOU ARE NUMBER 1!!!

Ever since I was told about this site I'm on it everyday at the minimum of 3 times a day. I would love some accessories for my love( next to my baby girl) lol. Once my dad was like you stay looking at that phone,I told him this isn't just a phone, its a life style. So please pick me!

Congrats on a well earned victory! As if any other site stood a chance against the mighty Crackberry. Keep up the excellent work...oh and please pick me:)

I don't need anyone to tell me you're number 1, you already were to me! But still, congratulations :D

I came here as soon as my Blackberry died on me, it kept rebooting on a loop and walked me through restoring my phone!

Would totally love to get some new accessories. IS the site I recommend to any blackberry user I come across.

Congratulations Crackberry!! Well deserved and finally we got this vote right!! :) Your site is very informative, user friendly, and loaded with weekly contests. Keep the train rollin!!

Congrats on the award Crackberry! You guys definitely earned it! This website is the only place I go to for all my Blackberry related needs.


I just got my first BlackBerry this year. Crackberry has helped my learn the ins and outs (of course, I'm still learning.) It's no surprise that you'd be ranked head and shoulders above the others.

Congrats on the accolades! Well-deserved! is hands-down the best BB site on the internet. I read it while drying my hair in the morning (yes, spammers, I'm gonna report each and every one of you at the expense of all-day frizz!) and I read it as I fall asleep at night.

Thanks to Kevin and all the mods and all the intelligent, knowledgeable members who make it happen!

I would like to congratulate the staff mainly for makings this such a amazing site for its members. Then I also think that the members of need to be congratulated for being soo dedicated to the community and really making the site that it is. This would only be another website lost in the World Wide Web if it wasn't for its dedicated staff members and community members. I think this is a well deserved award for! You guys have definitely earned it. Keep it going and lets see if next year as a community we can capture even more of those votes!!!
Great Job To All!!!

Ok, following the power of positive thinking like the begining of your blog I think I'll get a charging pod, skin case, screen protector & a bluetooth hands free device to start.

and the it's time to seek software. Ok many ideas all I need is to win the contest.


Well, its obvious that I love my blackberry tour. I bought a blackberry because a lot of my friends use them and then I fell in love with it and have since converted even more of my friends. If you pick me, I will use the $250 to pay it forward and buy accessories for my friends too!!

I honestly didn't even know there was another Blackberry Blog site available.

Once I stumbled onto the best (Crackberry, I never bothered to look for anything else.

Keep up the good work. Looking forward to discovering even bigger and better things in the Blackberry world through my friends at Crackberry.

The $250 would definitely make my day. My blackberry tour really needs some add on like a charging dock. Please Help

Always so amazed by how generous you guys are with all of these contests.

I hope I can win this one!

Thank you for the contest! is a site visit multiple times daily, not to mention following you on Twitter and being a fan on Facebook and subscribing to the YouTube channel. Sure would like to purchase some fine merchandise from the Online Store.

Kudos! Keep up the great blogging!


P.S. I really like how when you try to start a new thread in the forums it automatically searches based on the thread title. Very slick!

I have been tuning into CB since a week after getting my first curve. CB is awesome, has awesome blogs, awesome readers, awesome stores, and awesome everything!


I was a late comer to crackberry I didn't even know it exisisted. Now I can't imagine 1 day without checking this site for updates and up and coming things. Thank you to the Stellar Crackberry team.

it's hardly a surprise that you guys won. other blackberry blog sites i've visited just seem a bit too impersonal and exist only to attract visitors ad views.

keep it up!

Forget that 13% of voters who have no idea how great awesome helpful informitive and all around useful you guys are. CONGRATS CRACKBERRY ON THIS MOST DESERVING AWARD YOUR SITE KICKS ASS! Keep it rockin in'11!!

I used to think pinstack measured up but then they went with all platforms. That's when I knew crackberry was the head honcho. So 2 years later I'm still and aways will be a crackberry junkie. Congrats crackberry. This proves your really numero uno. love to go on a mini shopping spree in the CrackBerry store!!! (extends arms and procedes to run down imaginary isle funneling stuff in my Ecart)

I've only been addicted to my blackberry for a short time, but this site has been invaluable to me. I check the site every day, and I also look forward to the podcasts. keep up the great work.

I would like to say thank you for always giving back to us. :) The reason I would like to win this because this website has so many things i would like, but can't afford. :) Good Luck To Whoever WINS. :)

Congratulations Crackberry team. You guys are doing a fab job. I love the regular and insightful updates, especially on new device releases, reviews of apps and of course, the contests. Keep up the good work!

CNN,FOX NEWS,CRACKBERRY,are the three sites I visit in the morning. I love this site ,very entertaining and I always recommend it to people with BB'S that I meet.

This is really great news. I voted for Crackberry :)
It's the best Blackberry blog out there. And the forums are awesome too.. Congrats again guys :)

Congrats CB you never let us down on your blogs help so many people and educate all on the wonderful world of Blackberry's
thank you and keep up the good work.

CrackBerry is the ONLY site I review on a daily basis - fantastic info and products I can't live without!

Thank you!

I am always confused about these "Leave A Comment" contests and how you all actually choose a winner. Do you all decide on who is the most deserving of the prize by how the winning comment appeals to you, or are we automatically entered into some vat of names just by virtue of having left ANY comment? At any rate, I hope this comment qualifies me for entry.

Thanks for all you do.

CB is hands down the best source for BB news and info. I live on this sit. It is nice to see CB get some respect!

What an awesome award and in return an awesome contest. I have been a Windows Mobile user, Palm Treo user, and every other basic phone user and have never had access to the things I get here. Much deserved!

Enter me!

Think about it who else should win the Best BlackBerry Blog for 2010 Wirefly Awards, NO ONE!! CrackBerry is the best!!

I am not surprised. I just love it. I read Crackberry multiple times a day and find it to be my go to source for everything "Berry".

I may not be a veteran but I've been a member for 1 year 3 weeks and have logged in everyday. This would be a good "first win" in my

This is the best blackberry site on the net hands down. Glad to see it has been recognized by all. Keep up the good work and keep the info flowing for us crackberry addicts.

I have been a loyal fan for 6 months, ever since getting my first blackberry. I love the articles about the newest accessories as I start to trick out my blackberry. is a "one stop shop" for everything I need. You Rock!

You know on how most awards are staged or rigged.. This is a well deserving award. You guys are always up to date with breaking news, awesome reader support & damn right friendly lolz. Good job on the first of many “BLOG OF THE YEAR” awards.

This is a well deserved reward for CrackBerry and all of its founders. I try to recommend everyone of my clients that have a blackberry to use this site to learn how to use their blackberry. I work for a Sprint PCS store that does repairs. When they come back in they usually thank me for the information because they find the Blackberry 101 classes very helpful. Keep up the awesome work guys!
