Happy 7th Birthday CrackBerry Nation!!!!!!!

By Kevin Michaluk on 26 Feb 2014 09:07 am EST

It's amazing how time flies when you're having fun! It was SEVEN YEARS AGO TODAY that we fired off our Hello World press release and officially opened up CrackBerry.com for business.

What a wild ride it's been. Looking back, we've been there through BlackBerry's best of times, worst of times and everything in between. And with a new CEO at the helm of the company and a refined vision for BlackBerry's future, it feels once again like we're at the start of an exciting new journey. 

Over the years, the real success of CrackBerry has always lied in the strength of our community. As enthusiasts and champions for BlackBerry, we tend to be both the company's harshest critics and most ardent supporters. This is a good thing as our ongoing feedback helps BlackBerry to constantly strive for more (the key is to always know when to be a supporter vs. a critic!). And our loyal and passionate member base has and always will make CrackBerry the go to resource for BlackBerry users that it is. 

In true CrackBerry fashion, and as we do every birthday, to celebrate the milestone we've baked up a sweet CrackBerry Birthday contest. Be sure to hit up the link below for your chance to enter.

Happy Birthday CrackBerry Nation. Here's to many more!

I'm older. Don't feel bad. I was 28 when I purchased my first BlackBerry.

I used my Q10 to create this CrackBerry madness!

I remember finding CrackBerry when I was looking for information on my curve 8530, and BBOS 4

Yep, it's really a dawn of a new beginning for BlackBerry. And it's probably a rebirth for CB. Again, HBD!!

Been a berry lover through the thick and thin and never once gave up hope, and the sonos play 1 and bridge will do just nicely..

Big fan of CB, helped me keep the faith and get the most from my BlackBerry's! Had a bad week so a win would really help!

For me it's a toss up between the Pebble watch and the headphones.

Hey HAPPY BD CrackBerry! Lurker for 2, member for 4 yrs. I probably would not be such a fan without the generous sharing of knowledge by the CB Nation. Lots of hard work by Kevin & Co. And who knew CB would have influence on BB?

Happy birthday CB :)

We have birthday in the same month, so I will remember that :D

Happy Birthday!! I'm surprised it is only 7 years. Feels like much longer (and I haven't even been on the site since its inception).

Great site, mostly good people here (haha) and lots of great information.

Happy birthday Crackberry! You've helped me out so many times, thank you for everything!

And fittingly, today I converted a Windows phone user to a Z10, and after leaving WhatsApp I've increased my BBM contact list from 2 to 16 in just one week, with lots more coming. BlackBerry is feeling mighty fine just now...

Posted via CB10

Happy birthday Crackberry.You made me love my BlackBerry much much more.My friends doesn't use BlackBerry because they think BlackBerry oldfashioned.I say the news from here and they started to be jealous.

Hey, Just got my new Z30 and I'm so excited about it. It's my day 5 with it.
And happy birthday to my Z10 too. Bought it about this time last year.

It's my hope that BlackBerry will be able to make things better and prove to be the champion that it really is.
