Win a Custom Painted BlackBerry Bold 9700 and More in the Make it a CrackBerry ColorWare Holiday Contest!



This is just awesome! Crackberry & ColorWare are awesome! Thank you for the opportunity to win. My baby sister (who is 13 years younger than I am) just graduated from college with a BA in Journalism. I bought her a curve for her birthday a couple of years ago but it is no longer up to par with her needs. The economy is bad and I don't have the chance to give her a newer phone for her Grad School studies so I thought "well I can do without one for a while to help my sister's studies" but if this Christmas Miracle happens then we'll both be saved! I have everything crossed that"s supposed to bring me luck! :-) Thank you. And MERRY CHRISTMAS!

Boy what a great contest this time a year and could I ever use a phone like that! Thanks for the chance to win it at least.

Here's an original poem I wrote just for Crackberry. Happy Holidays to all!
Dear Santa,

If I could pick the perfect gift 
I'd wish with all my might
For a new theme with a Christmas tree
Adorned with bulbs and lights 
Or maybe I'd want something more 
Like a game or an application 
I could follow Santa around the world
Making stops in every nation!
Maybe a game with elves and raindeer
Making sleighloads of Christmas cheer
I'd play that game all day you see
Making presents for all friends and family 
A wallpaper would be nice 
Of a lake covered with ice
Skaters dancing around with smiles
Or maybe a new case
With painted frills and lace
So my berry can have a Christmas with style!
I know I'd go crazy for a new bluetooth
Or maybe a new ringtone about winter blues
Because I can't decide what I want for Christmas
There's certainly too much to choose!
Maybe I'd go find a place for some help
Like a website with loads of suggestions
A place with recommendations and opinions and such
With options and variations and loads of so much
Toys for my berry, accessories and bundles 
Boat loads of skins, cases and holders
With reviews and rumors and all sorta stories
From fellow Pearl, Curve and Blackberry Bolders!  
Ringtones, wallpapers, themes and games
Along with applications and gifts
Blogs to keep up with every new change
There's no way such a place could exist!
Santa, oh Santa
Could I please have this site
It seems like the place of my dreams!
I'd do backflips old Saint Nick
If you'd give me this gift
Where I can get all sorts of Blackberry things!
I'd scream from every rooftop
Of the place where every Blackberry owner
Can congregate and fit in and belong
I'd give it a name and a logo and all
I'd call it!
Please Santa Clause if you can hear my plea
Let it appear over night 
I'll wake up in the morning and log on first thing
I'd never ask for another holiday prize!
So I'll end this letter with a hope and a wish
For the place that could out-gift EVERY gift
For the place that could only possibly exist
If Santa you'd please add this place to your list!

A Hopeful Blackberry Owner

It would totally be a blessing to win this contest. I always say stuff like this doesn't happen to people like me, but it's WORTH a shot. Crackberry is the best. MERRY CHRISTMAS everybody! Candy-canes, presents, mistletoes, snow men, eggnog, decorations, lights, stars, sleighs, FOOD, the whole shebang... Have a ball!

Hook me up, CrackBerry. I work at an AT&T Agent and I'm stuck using a Nokia 2610 because my 8900 broke and I can't afford a new one right now...


I LOVE this! I think that more phones should be more customizable like this! Instead of having to buy cases and such to put your own touch on it. Here's to a new year and hoping I win it as well as the accessory bundle! That would be just awesome and what I need! :)

I love my BB Bold and would a splash of color in my life a phone that truly represents me. Please pick me.

I wish I could win......I accidently left my phone on my lap while driving, and got out without realizing where it was..

Dropped right onto a brick and broke :((

Hopefully everyone has a funfilled Christmas, and who knows. Maybe someone will end up with a new 'Berry like I did this year. :D

This surely would make for an excellent Christmas. Unfortunately I dont have one already to keep me company while I work through the holiday!

PLEASE PLEASE!!!! Been looking at the 9700 for a little bit now and would love to have a custon colored one for christmas.

I will post this one, singular comment and it will be chosen. I will win the BlackBerry Bold 9700 to give to someone as a gift for the holidays, haha.

Well after buying a 9700 for my wife, will have to wait to get another one, unless I get lucky here. And it would look nice wearing the colors
of black and silver and white --hehe


To keep things short and sweet, college + minimum wage + sidekick = serious stress. Help me out please!

PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEASE pick me! I was a very good girl this year! Happy Holidays to the CrackBerry Nation!!

Pick mee! I wanna get my mom a new crackberry! She's using the 8830 WE and I want to surprise her with a pink 9700

Pick me because i have been realy bad and will most likly get a lump of coal. So this would be my only present.
Not really but sure would be nice. Thanks, BB

A combination of red and green would be seasonally appropriate and so stylish. My wardrobe definitely needs this phone.

Wut an AWESOME Christmas Gift this would be!! I really HOPE to read my name as the WINNER tomar AM.......!!??

I am new Blackberry owner, just learning some of its great potential.'s forums, classes, and resources have been invaluable to this new kid (if that were only true) on the block.

Pick me, Pick me, Pick me, Pick me, Pick me, Pick me, Pick me, Pick me, Pick me, Pick me, Pick me, Pick me, Pick me, Pick me, Please!

I would love to win this and get ride of my storm maybe it time to switch over to a keypad phone who knows!

What a great Xmas present this would be for the guy who never wins anything! I would really enjoy a new 9700 custom built for myself or maybe even my wife, hmmm..... Good luck to all!

Ho, Ho, Ho, I'll gladly take one Blackberry Bold to go this Christmas.

Best wishes to the entire staff at Crackberry for their tireless efforts to keep all of us up to date on the latest and greatest news about our Blackberry devices and apps, as well as how the competition is fairing. Great job everyone!
All the best for 2010 -- we hope your efforts will never end!
