HOLY CRACKBERRY BATMAN! The folks at Tether (formerly TetherBerry) didn't take part in our CrackBerry Turns 1 and 2 celebrations, so they wanted to make up for that on CrackBerry's third birthday by doing up the single wickedest birthday contest in CrackBerry history!

Birthday Contest: Tether is providing FIVE BlackBerry Smartphones and 100 Free copies of Tether to the lucky winners in this contest. All you need to do is leave a single comment to this post to be entered. For the five device winners, you'll be able to choose which device you want, be it a Bold 9700 / Tour / Storm / Curve / etc. or if you'd rather wait for a new device to hit the market (like the new CDMA Tour2-gone-Bold) then that's cool too. To make the devices extra special and commemorate the occassion they're going to hook the device winners up with a Tether/CrackBerry.com Coveroo too. PIMP'n! Thanks Tether and Good Luck!!

Learn More About Tether: Tether has had a huge following by CrackBerry readers since it was first launched in beta, but if you're not familiar with it yet then jump on over to Tether.com to learn more or check it out in our CrackBerry App Store.  It's the easiest way to tether your BlackBerry to your Windows or Mac powered notebook/computer.

Please tether me. Thank you

jennwald

How awesome is this contest?!? :)

ncgirl116#CB

Please pick me, I need a new Blackberry for my boyfriend, he's needs to be apart of the BB world!

Aavenger

CRACKBERRY.COM is therapy for me..Tether is the best product in the market for a blackberry owner. I need a new Bold 9000...:-)

BlackKho

I already have Tether, which is a pretty amazing app. If I am one of the 5 chosen, I'll definitely wait for a new device! Pleeeeeeeeeeaaaaaaaaaaassssssssseeeeeeeeeee!

nik316

How amazing is this? Tether!!!!!!!!!!!

AgentScribe

He's yours, if I win this contest.

*Legal disclaimer: Comment made in jest, a joke indicating how deserving and wanting Agent is for a new BlackBerry, which he'll buy anyway, at some point this year, because his 8330 has been put through the paces: in the toilet, under the lawnmower (which was running), under his arse, etc. AgentScribe has not conferred with his significant other regarding his proposed offer to trade their first born for a shiny, new BB, and he probably is not authorized to give away said kid with her permission. By posting this comment, AgentScribe does not enter into any contract, expressed or implied.

tons-q

Are you sure about this!!!!???? By only leaving one simple plain meaningless comment!!!!!????? That's just plain mad crazy awesome!!!!! Whew, the chance is quite slim, but you never know! Hit me! Please! On Crackberry 3rd most awesome birthday yet!! Happy happy happy birthday!!

dave.lee

I'd Love a win on this guys :)

Treo_Robb

Crackberry.com was there when I got my very first BB. You were there to teach me how to use it. To answer all of my questions. To help me resolve any/all issues I've ever experienced. To expand my horizons when I began dabbling into the unknown world of hybrids. And countless other times - way to many too mention here, but I'm sure you know what I mean... :)

You have been a life-saver on more than one occasion and I can't begin to thank you and all of the members of this site enough for everything you have done to bring the world of BB owners together in one mutual place to help make these already awesome devices even better! I truly and profoundly appreciate all that you are and everything that you do and wish you many more wonderful years to come!

Cheers on turning three! I'll be sure to knock one back for you tonight after I get off work! lol

Chriz

Nice Contest.
Hope i can win. :-)

Timothinho

I'm going to tether my girlfriend this year,, blackberry device and tether would be a perfect gifts for her. Why? Because, BlackBerry has been the main problem in our relationship. I'm a bb addict, but her.. well she's like a laptop addict! I'M SERIOUS. She hates blackberry = she hates me when I'm with my bb. she always brings her laptop anywhere she goes because her work made her do it (heavy email users, internet marketing, business plan, and stuff).

When I read this blog, i was like: 'YESSSSS, YESSSSSSS, THIS IS IT! THIS IS IT! I'M GOING TO BRAINWASH HER, CRACK HER MIND WITH THIS CRACKBERRY AWESOMENESS' because BB + Tether will perfectly match her need, and I'm sure she will make peace with BlackBerry. and hopefully we can live a cracking life together! wuhuww!!

Happy Birthday CrackBerry!

PlainEnvelopes

Happy birthday Crackberry, keep up the good work. When i found this site i was amazed by all of the BB information that it had to offer, made the transition to my first bb super easy. love the site.

I've already wished CB a Happy B-day, but I also wanted to say that I really need an Upgraded BB. I was the first in my whole group of friends to have a Blackberry(Pearl 8110). Nowwwwww....they all have the BOLD 9700. I got them all into it, now I'm behind!! I'm tired of hearing them telling me I have a dinasour. Hook me up Tether...I'm not picky..I'll take a Curve.

Happy Birthday CrackBerry. I have Tether installed on my current BlackBerry phone, and I love being able to connect to the Internet using my phone as a tether device for my computer (when there's no trustworthy WiFi network available). The Tether program has been instrumental in helping me to complete my online college courses. Thanks. I hope I win, and good luck to everyone else hoping to win.

What's the record for comments on an entry? I have a feeling this one might break it... Three years, Five phones, 100 tethers.. Yep, good chance. Oh and I'd love a prize!

grreyes24

It would be great if I won a copy of Tether. I could use it so much. At work the internet is blocked and the wifi is password protected. At school, most of my classes just happen to be in the only non-wifi portion of campus. Hopefully I am one of the lucky ones.

Jayreyd

I'm blown away at how amazing the contests are crackberry! You guys have really out done yourself! I would be extremely grateful to win any of these contests.

BasPilot

I would love either of these. May be back in the hospital and don't ha e wifi there. Bad for guys who need their net fix before most people go for morning coffee!

kendal32884

Thanks Crackberry and Teether for the chance to win u guys are awesome hope I win something out of these awesome contests

d3lta#CB

Pick me for Tether! (or the free blackberry!) Being able to tether my phone to my carputer would be lotsa fun, also while traveling it would be invaluable!

These giveaways do work though, I'd been complacent about getting a tethering thing, but now I think I'm heading over and giving Tether a try.

bbstorm2900

i really really need a new crackberry. please hook me up guys :D
