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



I am new to the crackberry kingdom, but I am finding that I am a true crackberry head. This thing is awesome! It would even be more awesome to win a new one!

Twas the night before christmas and all through the web nothing is better than what at CrackBerry is said. Together with ColorWare a contest was sprung. With hopes of winning a new blackberry in my heart hung. Merry christmas to all and to all a good night. Hope my new blackberry will soon be in sight. =)

Any BlackBerry device model sporting any color still functions the same great performance the BlackBerry brand is known for. The colors may suit funky teens, or the youth, including me. So let me win! I'll be truly thankful for a nice gift this holiday season!

I think I should get the custom Bold 9700 because not only is it Christmas, it's my birthday as well! I can prove it too.

I was going to mass text everyone Happy Holidays but due to the economy I can only wish the people of Crackberry a Happy Holiday!!

i need a new blackberry mine is old and dysfunctional! man it would be a christmas miracle to win..

this would be sweet crackberry and colorware i hope u and ur families have a great christmas and thanks for the chance to win

The colour scheme on the pictured BB 9700 reminds me of an early 90's VW Golf 5-door hatch. In an effort to distinguish their car from others, VW created a limited number of VW's with red, yellow, blue and green deliberately mis-matched doors, hood and fenders. They were pretty cool, just like the pictured BB.

My sister in-law Cristy loves my "blackberry tour" And if i were to win,Cristy would have the best Christmas,since she was 5yrs old.

Please colorware Santa, I've been a good boy this year, can I have the custom painted 9700? I swear I will leave out some buñuelos for you.

And the best way to dress it up.

Thanks to Crackberry and Colorware for the contest and Happy Holidays to everyone in the CB Nation.

I am currently serving in Afghanistan and will be returning early next year and could really use a new bold 9700 to get reconnected with all my friends and family

Funny, I'm an AT&T carrier but I work for sprint adv. tech support and about 80% of our calls are on blackberries and being a blackberry user I much rather take calls on blackberries all day versus any other sprint device we troubleshoot!

This is cool. I am in the process of picking out the color scheme for my 1976 Vette restoration and will make the phone and the car match!!!

Nothing cooler that cruizing in a Vette talking on a matching BB!!!!

Merry Christmas Crackberry! My first post and first time Blackberry user. this site rules and I have a lot of reading to do!!! Thanks.

This would be amazing. I would say I would be on Crackberry more if I win this but I doubt thats possible...




I would love to win this for my wife and surprise her with the custom 9700, she has a 8330 and is in need of an upgrade

I would love to win but I usually do not win these contests I would just like to wish everyone a Merry Christmas!!!

Dear Crackberry Elves, I've been good all please pick me to win the custom BlackBerry Bold 9700. Love to have one...just can't afford to buy one. Pleaseeeeee Pick Me!!! Thank you.

Now that is onCe nice lookin Bold. I've had a chance to try one and find the optical track pad to work very slick/

Well can't remember if I did this one, but will do it again anyways, and Merry Christmas to all the CrackHeads out, best of the Holidays, from the Great White North.

I can't remember if I posted already, so I am posting now. Probably doesn't matter anyway as I never win these things. But you guys could show them all how wrong I am by picking me to win this one! Yeah, that would put me in my place!

Hahahahaha..if onyx coloured with that color..that looks funny,hahahahaha..
I hope santa bring me that phone.. :)

What a great way to customize a BB. Even if I don't win, I want to find out more about how to get Colorware for my old 8320

I know I'm going to win this custom colored 9700! I feel the Christmas spirit from CrackBerry, BlackBerry, and Colorware! I would be very grateful and spread would definitely spread the good word all over the internet. May the force be with me! Custom-colored 9700, here I come! Thanks Kevin, CrackBerry, and Colorware!

Over 8600 comments, so my chances are slim (yet, not any slimmer than the other 8600+ responders) here goes...

I would love to win this contest...and as we all know: Can't win it if you're not in it! :)

My son is Air Force Tech Sergeant. On 21 December he was traveling from Minot, North Dakota to McChord AFB in Seattle Washington. He is being deployed in a month to South Korea. He, wife and 7 yr old daughter stopped at hotel in Spokane, WA. He was in his truck pulling a U-haul trailer with all their personal possessions. Thieves stole truck and trailer during the night. All Christmas was also in trailer. Took all their possessions; uniforms, clothes , house goods, etc. Police recovered truck. U haul found minus most of personal belongings. I want to win this 9700 to give to my son. He has an old BlackBerry which I would like to replace for him. You can Google this story on the Spokane WA news. There is video on all TV channels. Has made national news. Thanks for consideration. DewmanCVMA

This would be the best Christmas present ever...I will be waiting for the winning email...Yayyyy

If I'm lucky enough to be chosen I will show my appreciation by getting the CrackBerry Logo tattooed on me or else forfeit the prize. Very serious, no BS.

This would be awesome!! I played with the 9700 at my local Bell Store and is Awesome. Looks slick and very fast. This would be awesome gift to be very unique and no one else would have the same one. Cheers!!! And Merry Merry Christmas!!!

this would be the perfect gift for my lady...she's not a blackberry user, so at least if she had this...she could see what these bbm outages are all about that im always talking about lol....BB 4 LIFE!!!

while taking my break from patroling the quiet streets i saw this post. this would be a great upgrade from my Curve 8330. Please Santa?

I would love to win this. I have a blackberry pearl that is fried. I had lots of help from people here and followed all their directions but the phone itself can not be fixed and I've been without a phone for 1 month. Please be my Santa
