Enter To Win 1 Of 15 Epik Cases For Your BlackBerry Smartphone



I dropped my 8900 when i was checking time waiting outside for my manager to let me i the store, and it was only the 4th or 5th day i had it.. very sad and it could have been avoided with an Epix case!

Sure could have used one of these things. I dropped my Berry in some snow went to pick it up and it slid across a downward sloping parking lot and under a car. I went to reach for it and it slid under another car. Wow, could this be happening...nope but we have had so much snow I have bad dreams about this happening to my berry! Sure could use one so I can sleep better. Thank you!

Worst thing I ever did was buy a skin from a Telus Store, which I was told would work with my holster. First time I tried taking it out, down went my new 8330 face first onto the pavement....

oem cases for the 9700 are poorly built... The epix would just carry this phone to the heights i know it can be!!!

i need one for my wife's new 8900, the 8wk old destroyed the old one by a "wet baby burp"...... putty please

like last night....dropped my 9700 late last night when out for my Wife's Bday.....kinda put a downer on things from my perspective.

I dropped my Storm 9530 after one week of ownership. I was getting on the Train to head to work, reached down to unclick it from my belt clip only to find an empty clip. After getting off at the next station and heading back to my station and searching the parking lot, I gave up and headed to work. Once I was at a phone it turns out someone had picked it up and I was able to recover it. However the Bezel and top and bottom were significantly scratched.

I was talking to my boss on my phone about a possible new promotion when I tripped on the rug in my house that was flipped uP and dropped my Tour, battery was knocked out and I hung up on my boss. Of course, it takes a while to reboot and she tried calling me back but couldn't get through. So she stopped trying to call back and I didn't get the promotion. Pretty sure one of these cases would have kept my battery from flying out and I would have gotten the promotion :(

Would love to have one of these cases so that NEVER happens again!

I dropped my Bold once and it came apart when it hit the tile floor - thankfully it didn't break. Would love a case for it.

My driveway is gravel. I need one cause I tend to fumble when getting out of the vehicle with a laptop, phone, itouch, keys, mail, etc.

Ahhh I'm in a bad situation right now! My screen is cracked down the middle and it only recognizes touch on parts where the crack isn't. It sucks! If I woulda had a case maybe it would have absorbed the damage! Plus I'm getting a new phone from verizon soon, cause i have insurance, so I need a new case to protect my new one!

I don't have luck with my Bold. At home and when I am out everything is fine, but at university... Gravity there must be much stronger than anywhere else, because my Berry keeps falling on the ground. When I put it in/out of pocket, when I type, all the time. My bezel is scratched in many places...

Please, make my 9000 safer and looking good :)

just recently cracked the screen on my 8900 (dropped it) still waiting for the new to arrive, but it would be great to have this when the new screen comes to avoid it happening again.... :(

All to often I miss my pocket, slide my phone down my pant leg and drop it right at my feet. I know, you're probably wondering how you can miss your pocket, I wonder the same thing every time I do it.

I'm a clumsy college student who's always dropping my berry in class and getting the professor mad! Winning a case woulb be Epix!!!!!

I was running late for work one morning and in that morning rush once I got to work I was reading a text that just came in when i pulled into my works parking lot. got done reading it and jumped out the car while trying to put my phone in my pocket. I missed my pocket by a long shot and I felt my phone drop down hitting my leg onto my foot as I took a step. It landed perfectly on my foot and got punted about 2 feet away from me. When it landed it tumbled another 3 and slid to a stop, and I was like oh s&%t!! I went and picked it up and it still works but it got dinged up real good on one of the corners. Yeah I definitely need an EPIK case for that added protection.

*waves hands excitedly* Pick me, pick me! I have an oem case & it's very flimsy. It doesn't feel like it's helping at all. I'd loooove one of these cases!

I need one due to the fact that I wake up in the middle of the night and my BB is missing from the charging pod, so I check my drawer where I keep most of my useful things and find it laying next to my old iPhone. I am in dire need of one due to the fact I think my BB is sleeping with my old iPhone...and I do not want them to reproduce!!!!

So I was going to run into bathroom real quick and had a hoodie sweatshirt on so I put my bb in the front pouch and started unzipping pants then it happened bb right in toilet ... Wait cases don't make phone float or water proof but they look amazing and could use one incase phone missed toilet and landed on floor!! Great looking cases guys

I had to replace my BB after the dog threw it off the bed and it fell to the hard wood floor... Maybe this case would have helped keep all the parts where they were intended to be! Hopefully I can use one to help protect the new phone!

This would look great on my Bold 9000! I dropped my phone while in the holster and it still got scratched up. I've replaced the bezel three times now. If I don't win, I plan on buying one.

Blackberry 9700 a week after i had it i had it in the pouch it came with and it fell off my belt and bounced off the pavement and the corners got scratched. if i had one of these i would of had it in my pocket and that wouldn't of happened,

thanks guys

I get the dropsies, usually in the driveway. No more dings and dents on the Storm if I had this.

i purchased a 9000 right before work one day. rushing to be on time, i had the device in my lap and when i got out of the car it went flying across a few parking spaces...it was still functional but physically damaged and i was heart brooken to say the least...please dont let this happen to my 9700...pick me

I would really like one of these cases! Great colors for fun and even a smoke "pro" version for professional times!! Thanks for offering this Crackberry!! :)

I could use one. I havent dropped my 9700 but before that i dropped my old phone in the toilet once at the bar and its survived!

I woulda needed a case for my storm 2 when i took it out of my tour holster and it dropped on the floor and cracked. i just gotten it two weeks earlier and had to pay the deductable for a new phone. sigh.

Got home from work one day and my Bold 9700 that I bought like three days before was on my lap, stood up and dropped it right in the gravel driveway. At that point the 9700 was still new and hard to find a good case for. I still haven't found a nice skin that I've been satisfied with.

yes this case would have been great to have when i dropped my phone at the club and the cha cha slide came on. my phone got cha cha slid on. hopefully this case will protect it from that happening again.

I am a mechanic on a military installation. I work on and maintain military equipment. I had just replaced some hydraulic lines on a crane and when I went to grab my Storm2 I still had a bit of oil residue on my fingers. Needless to say it slid out and fell on its side three times as it bounced. Could have really used an Epix case.

I had just upgraded, when I went to pick up my phone, it slipped out of my hand and fell between the counters, struck a metal support on the way down before hitting the hard tile floor. Luckily it didn't break, but is in need of protection.

I got a OEM shell from T-Mobile and when my 9700 slipped out of my hand and fell on the pavement, the shell shattered! My phone was ok, but now I have no shell! The shell was the cheapest plastic known to man!

carrying 2 kids, balancing a diaper bag, blankets and my berry when it slipped out of my hands as I was double timing it to the suv. I immediately dropped everything to make sure my berry was ok. Can't live w/o it.

Would be nice to get one for my Storm 2.

I work at a major retail warehouse, making sure my BB is safe in my pocket or a belt holster is a challenge. anything to help keep my BB safe is a good idea.

Left my phone on my lap in the car. As i got out, i forgot it was on my lap. Too late! Next thing i heard was the sound of my phone on the pavement! Poor thing was all scratched up and dinged. Wished i had that epik skin on!

I could use one of these. I pulled my keys out of my jeans pocket and my Storm came out with it. It fell to the ground and scarred up my precious.

A nice phone case would be amazing right now for me. I received one for Christmas but it makes my signal strength weak and my phone loses about 90% battery when I'm at school trying to get service. And when I figured it was the case after several days of searching the forums here at Crackberry I took it off and left it off. Then when I was at church playing with some kids they kicked my leg where my phone is and I have a dent in my battery door (luckily it wasn't my screen). This case is made better and shouldn't affect my signal strength and would hopefully protect my phone from any other dents.

I've dropped my BlackBerry Curve 8310 several times while I was getting out my car; the BB fell out of my pocket. Sometimes the battery door comes off. Having a case like this would help avoid not only the inconvenience of getting on the ground to retrieve my battery door, but also the chance of actual damage. (I'd probably still cringe if I drop the BB, though!)

Not for me... I have a nice holster. BUT, the wife has dropped hers 3 times now!! Luckily it landed on the back but holy cow we did not get insurance on them! (she never dropped her older phones) Shes makin me nervous... I keep telling her to buy a case and she keeps putting it off. So Winning one would be awesome... I could just hand it to her and say PUT THIS ON!

Thanks CB!

I could definitely use one of these for my 8330 so I don't ruin the screen anymore plus almost every time I drink I drop my phone

A couple of weeks ago I was getting out of my car, and as I was grabbing my berry to put in my coat pocket, before i knew it or could react my dear sweet berry slipped out of my hands and hit the snow covered drive way. I was devastated..no case no protection at all.....I really, really, REALLY need this case. Please oh please pick me. I have to keep Nikki (my BB) as cute as possible.

I keep seeing new scratches on my Storm2 and this case would prevent any more from showing up. Hook a brother up!!!

love my epik case but have had it for a while. would like a new one where the holes line up with the battery port and headset port.

I have the blackberry tour, 9630. I just bought the Incipio case one month ago and it has already cracked!! I contacted them for a replacement and they refuse to replace it. I would love a case that is reliable and wont break!

My 2 year old has the arm of a 20 year old AA phenom. Was throwing toys around and my 8330 was nearby. Thankfully the BB still functioned and was never left in his reach again.

Sucks the one style for the Tour has alignment issues, but that's not the end of the world. Count me in, please, thanks! Even if I don't win one, I think these are the kind of cases I've been looking for, for quite a long time.

I dropped a Berry in a parking lot once - mid stride - only to step on it myself and grind it into the asphalt. Doh!

I received my brand new 8520 2 weeks ago, and I´ve been very happy with the new cell phone, how ever four day after I received it I was working in my garage, I was building a new table for my living room. I didn´t notice that my BB8520 was covered with sawdust :( at that moment I was wishing to have bought an screen protector and a case :(

I just turn it of, and clean it carefully. Hope toi be lucky a win an Epix case and the screen protector :)

Cheers my friends and keeo the good work you are doing!


I set my 8900 on the counter and had a stoneware dish land on the screen - it put a big crack in it and I almost cried. If I would have had an Epic case and screen protector - I know it would have been saved!!!

Would love to win to protect my new one!!

I got me and my wifey new Blackberry tours on Christmas eve. Well, in Christmas day, as we were loading the car to go to Grandma's house, my Blackerry slipped out of my pocket as I was closing tha car door. As you can imagine, the car door won the battle quite easily. Needless to say, I have had better Christmass and an Epix case would have surely been a phone saver.

I need this cause I just got my blackberry and am really scared of scratching my screen, plus there is a clicking sound whenever I pick up my phone so the case would be greatly appreciated!

We've been getting a lot of snow in the North East. So much so that I decided to have my driveway plowed this year. The last storm we had was bad and the plow was running late. I decided to shovel at least path to the mailbox. My Tour fell out of my pocket at some point without me knowing it. I realized when I went back inside that it was missing... and I did panic. I went back out, but could not see it on top anywhere. I would have to shovel. 50 minutes later, after shoveling and scrutinizing every shovel full, I found it. The plow would have killed it. No damage to the phone, and I saved $30 on the plow, by shoveling the rest.

After I had just purchased my blackberry (and turned down the insurance), I accidently knocked it off my computer table. For about ten seconds I was in utter panic. Fortunately, when I picked it up, the phone was fine. Nonetheless, it was then that I realized I needed to get a case for this puppy. I'd love to have an epik case to protect it in the future. Thanks.

My Curve 8330m could use one of these to hide the "character" it has developed in the 7 months I've had it. Thanks.

I would like a case for my storm2. There are no case available where I live yet. I need protection ASAP. Please pick me.

*Double post. I'm sorry.

I guess I'm accident prone. I had my Storm for about 2 days when I set it down at a conference table and flipped up the tables "hatch" so I could plug in my laptop. The hatch, which was supposed to be hinged, wasn't, and it fell on my storm, putting a "groove" in the bezel.

Shortly after that, I did get a case but now the corners of the case are chewed up from several slides out of my pouch and across the parking lot. I could use a new one and these look great.

I, like most people, am addicted to my BB Bold 9700. A few days after I got it, I was texting while driving (don't we all!). I put it in between my legs for safe keeping while I parked, and due to my excitement for the first day of class (and finding adequate parking), I forgot my 9700 was in between my legs! Needless to say, it jumped ship as I was getting out of the car ... my poor Bold. I need a new case for the one thats on the way! Thanks crackberry!

Literally, the same day I got my new BB 8120... A friend of mine was visiting from out of town and we went for dinner. I was all excited about my new smart phone and the new world of possibilities it opened up. So I take it out of the holster to show it to her, and it was in her hand for maybe 5 seconds until the unthinkable happened! Slipped out of her hand as if it were a greased up bar of soap. I was shocked and devastated to see the pieces of my new device all over the hard concrete side walk.

If I only had an Epix case, oh the heartbreak it would've saved. My friend did end up getting me a new phone but I still would have loved to avoid that situation that I'm sure happens to many many people on a regular basis.

Managed to drop my 9000 while putting it into my jacket pocket. I made a weird move with my foot to break its fall - which I succeeded in doing - however, it had recently snowed and was rather slippery. So while my BlackBerry didn't hit the ground hard, I did!

I could also use one of these. I'm planning on getting a Seidio innocase holster, and one of these would go well with it.

i constantly drop my phone, it sucks. i have to replace my screen protector about twice a month. i'm getting a new 8900 soon and this would sure help out

The case or protection I have now is cracked "all of a sudden" so must be week or I am hard on the stuff. Had it for about a month and bang, there it goes, to the cement. At the airport finding the pieces to put it back together. It works, but would be much nicer with the protection of an epik case!!!

I would love one of these. I had an iskin for my 8900 but they arent out for the 9700 yet. This would help protect my bold at work as everyone always wants to touch it and see it but they arent as careful with my baby as i am.

thanks CB!

I can use one for sure. My last phone hit the ground so hard it came to pieces so I ended moving to the BB and I am loving this phone so much that I do not want the same thing to happen to it so protection is a must :)

I have a special battery cover that is light in color and after reading the paper the ink smudges and turns my battery door cover black! Would love the clear one for my 9700. Thanks!

My wife dropped my BB storm two days after getting it. Multiple scratches and dings.
Very disappointed with appearance now.
Would have been saved the heartache and marriage counselling if I had one of these cases.

I bought an epik skin, and i have it on my 9700. I was getting into my car, and forgot my phone on the roof of the car. after about 2 blocks, i noticed and halted, just to see my bold2 still in place... :) true story, these are really great... i hope the winners enjoy them, and i would love to win another :) cheers
