CrackBerry Birthday Contest: Leave a comment to this post making your "BlackBerry Wish" and we'll make it come true for one lucky winner! 

Happy Birthday CrackBerry Nation! That's right... Sunday, February 26th, 2012 marks FIVE years to the day that we fired off our Hello World Press Release and officially opened our doors to And what an *amazing* five years it has been.

To our longtime readers and members who have been here for the whole journey, you know what we've achieved together over the years and we thank you for the ongoing love and support. To those who have discovered CrackBerry more recently, we hope you continue to visit for years to come. It's funny, you'd think after five years we'd be a little tired, but we're more energized than ever. With BlackBerry 10 phones on the horizon and a lot of great plans for the site in the works, it's an exciting time to be part of CrackBerry Nation. Heck, we even set a record this week in our forums for the most people online at one time!

BIRTHDAY CONTEST - Make a BlackBerry Wish and you could Win It! 

In true CrackBerry birthday fashion, we're celebrating with a contest. We couldn't decide what to give away as a prize, so we're leaving it up to you. All you need to do is leave a comment to this post with your "CrackBerry BlackBerry Wish" and we're going to make it come true for one lucky winner. Want a BlackBerry 10 phone when it becomes available? Or maybe a Porsche Design P'9981 BlackBerry? How about a trip to BlackBerry World in Orlando this year? Close your eyes, pick that BB thing you want most, and make that wish!! Good Luck!

CB is a great website with a lot of informations for our beloved Blackberries.

I would really like to see that the way RIM is going today will succeed and will not be pushed out of business by Android, Windows 8 or Apple.

A trip to Blackberry world sounds great but I would also be happe with a BB10 device to replace my Bold 9000 that is slowly getting old.

Happy Birthday CrackBerry.

It is so nice to see a BB forum still active despite RIM having a bit despair.

Anyway, it is funny to be given a present while u r the one whom having birthday. Anywaaay, my wish would be a BB10 device :) Dont know it would come or not, but I definitely want and wait one (I dont change my BB 9700 despite a little bored with this phone).

PS: I still need BB device since I'm living in country which having quite majority in BB users. Guess where!

Anyway, keep up for this forum :) I always give daily visit anyway to this website

The BB Porsche looks so darn good too

I wish to have a BlackBerry Bold 9900 Black as a replacement for my 3G Curve. :D - I can do a nose-to-nose with Voldemort if you want me to. I can even make Edward Cullen turn black so I can stop his shining.

Happy birthday crackberry!!! My wish is to have the P9981 phone. If I can have that it will be AWESOME!

Happy 5th birthday crackberry!! For the wish I would really love the P9981 phone. My current phone is the blackberry bold 9000 and I've been using it for 3 years now and it because I can't afford to buy a new one :( Thanks!

If i could wish, i'd wish for a customised Porsche Design p'9981 blackberry with champagne coloured rim and QWERTY. that'd be my dream phone =D

My wish is a Porsche Design P'9981, as BlackBerry + Porsche is a high-tech combination!

Happy Birthday. Because of you, I'm addicted to Its the first place i go for help and info for my Blackberry. Cant wait for OS 10 and NFC (and Skype for my Playbook). I wish my torch 9860 had it.

I would've wished for a 32 GB PlayBook if I'd been able to login sooner! I'm so sad I couldn't before the deadline :-(

Happy Birthday Crackberry!

My wish would be for a BlackBerry 10 device (phone with physical keyboard) that could sync seamlessly with the powerful native apps on my Playbook. Hopefully I can be patient enough with my Torch and not upgrade prematurely.

Good luck everyone

but also what is brewing!

and the chance to replace my 9850 with a 10!

Happy Bday!
