Pretty in Colors! fa la la la la la la la la! Colorware is really goin all out with this one. Definitely festive to say the least! Imagine what a conversation starter piece this would be at the dinner table on new years lol..

I believed that Santa delivers toys and goods to people all over the world cuz he carries the Bold 9700. Without it, he be stuck in the chiminy and can't call to get help delivers goods on time.

This looks awsome, it would be the perfect gift for me being a single father that lost my job & lost my BB as well no funds this year to buy a new BB, just trying to meet ends meat! merry xmas

winnin' this would be damn awful*eeek* lol just kidding, can't wait to swap me 9000 for a 9700....a customized one would be ASS KICKIN' !!!

but my crackberry is more insightful.

so let it snow let it snow let it snow!!!

This is an awesome give away for the Christmas time. I love the colorware people and what they do for blackberries.

Thank you for giving us the opportunity to win this! If I receive this, I will be giving it to my husband, since he's considering moving to a droid (gasp!).

Crackberry gave to me a brand new Bold 9700 with a custom paint job wrapped under my tree!!
Please pick me! :)

I already have a 9700 but I'd love another one! I could give one to my girlfriend who has decided to make the jump to a smartphone when her contract is up.

Man, would I love to have a 9700 BOLD!!!!! I am currently using the BOLD 9000...lovin it and always will love it. Blackberry's #1

I don't enter too many contests, but I have been drooling over the 9700 for a long time. I am crossing my fingers for the chance to win such an awesome prize.

Here's a little jingle I wrote to show how much I would love this Berry for Christmas!

Dashing through the streets
Shopping for a gift
Jimmy wants soccer cleats
And I could use a lift

So I reach for my Berry
To call the nearest ride
But with all the bags I carry
I dropped by phone, it died

So for Christmas I pray
Not for silver or gold
Because that would be cliche
But for a new Blackberry BOLD!

Thanks CrackBerry!

Thank you ColorWare for this chance for a one of a kind device! Merry Christmas to all you other Posters and goodluck.

man i hope i win this....especially since the 9700 isn't on sprint....guess i will have to get a unlock code if i win! but so worth it!

I only pushed THREE people on the sidewalk and I didn't spit in anyone's caramel corn at the fair and I returned that car I "borrowed" from that random dude's driveway. Please can I have a Bold 9700?

I'm injoying it CZullo

Hi, you guys do a great job on this site. How fun would that be to win one of these and a pick my own color-maybe lakers colors or all white...can't decide

Dear Crackberry Santa,

I've been very good this year, worked hard and supported my loved ones, so much so that i want to get a 9700 but can't afford it, cause family comes first! So please crackberry fill my stocking with a custom painted 9700, that way i can jump on telus' new HSPA network.

Wishing everyone in the crackberry family a merry Christmas!

I think the BB Bold 9700 is the hottest thing out there, but a ColorWare BB 9700 tops that! It IS all I want for Christmas!

Gotta love crack berry and their crazy contests. I would love to get my hands on this device as well as the colorware. If I won bet your bottom i would show the world and help out colorware!!!


Momma may need some new shoes, but I need a blue and yellow Bold for Christmas.

Keep up the good work guys.

would you please tell your crackberry elves to give me the colorware 9700? i promise i'll be good next year and not secretly download songs from disney tween stars (and tell my friends i'm downloading them for my niece).

oh and i'll also put a link to crackberry on all of my social networking profiles :D

Dear Santa,

Please bring a new phone Santa! The 9700 would be the bestes Christmas gift ever! I've been a good boy this year & haven't run over any senior citizens, or stolen from the collection plate in da church!



I would love to win this for my wife. She has been dying for a Blackberry but the budget just doesn't allow it right now. Please Jeebus, let me win for once!

Thanks Color ware for making someones Christmas. Maybe I will get lucky this time.

Merry Christmas,


I would love to win this. Can't afford anything for my family, out of work for 5 months, and I would love to give this to my little sister for christmas.

I'm a frustrated Tour owner who wants nothing more for Christmas than and shiny new 9700. Thanks for spreading the cheer, CB

Please choose me, a 9700 could really turn my luck around and make me the happiest man ever! Thank you crackberry, i love you!

Thanks Crackberry what a surprise gift this will make for some lucky winner hope that would be me!

All I want for Christmas is a new Blackberry, a new Blackberry, a new Blackberry. All I want for Christmas is a new Blackberry --- a FREE one would be nice!!
