* Update: Last Day to Enter! New Year's Eve is upon us which means it's your last chance to enter to win a BlackBerry 10 phone in our CrackBerry Santa Contest! The contest closes tonight at Midnight PST. Good luck! *

December is here which means it's time for yet another amazing CrackBerry Santa contest. Last year we also gave away an IOU for a BB10 phone, thinking they would become available in 2012. Mrs. Claus isn't too happy that the winner from last year's CB Santa contest is still waiting for their prize, but at least this year we know the winner will get their phone soon into the new year, with the BlackBerry 10 launch event happening on January 30th, 2013.

The Prize: The winner of this contest will receive their choice of BlackBerry 10 phone - either the L-Series full touchscreen version which will come to market first, or the N-Series qwerty version that will hit the market second. And of course, we're CrackBerry... so we'll come up with a bunch of great stocking stuffer prizes for a few other lucky winners.

Win a free BlackBerry 10 phone in our CrackBerry Santa Contest!!



I'm up for a new plan in the new year so the timing is perfect. I'm in need of a new device and I'm so excited for the new BB10 devices. All my friends and family "raze" me for waiting for RIM, but I'm a true Canadian and I support Canadian companies as best as I can. Thank you very much for the opportunity to win a device so I'm not a slave to one of our big three telecom companies...I can choose my own provider. Cheers and have a Merry Christmas!

CrackBerry, you guys can't imagine how badly I really want to win this prize, but like in life their are many uncertainties, so this is say let the best man or woman win.

BB10 I hope you sucess, I can't take those irresponsible analysts especially from usa.
Is there a way I can find those irresponsible analysts?

I would love to have a BB10! My Torch 9800 has a broken retainer for the cover, so everytime I pull it out of the pouch (purchased through the Crackberry store, of course) the cover slides off. Just waiting for the BB10's to launch so I can pick one up, but a free one would be even better!

Hopefully can get this BB10 since my Bold 9900 was sent for warranty claiming..
Suddenly blackout while charging :(
Hopefully, by winning this BB10, will bring back my happiness and loyalty to BB..

Wow, a LOT of comments already. This is great to see. I suppose it means there is still a LOT of interest in RIM/BlackBerry.(or perhaps just interest in the contest). However, as a former resident of Waterloo Region (Cambridge) I am really hoping that BB10 blows everyone away, because I LOVE RIM/BlackBerry, and I want them to be around for a LONG time. There will be a lot of jobs lost, hurt families, crippled region and industry if BlackBerry fails to leap ahead with this new OS.

Here's hoping that BB10 IS all it's CRACKED up to be and that I am chosen as the winner of the new device. BB Rocks!

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to everyone :)

I need to win because I love my Blackberry and want RIM to succeed. However, I am losing faith in my 9930 and am concerned with the future of this device and software. I would probably get the Blackberry logo tattoo'd on my body if I won this contest. I use my device to the extent that it was made - I need a tool, not a toy! Blackberry has been the molding of my business persona I am today. For that, I am grateful. Whatever the market perceives, there will never be a suitable substitute for my Blackberry! #BB10 all the way!

I am hopeful that this new OS will turn RIM around. There needs to be another contender besides Apple and Android. I would love a new BB10.

Still waiting almost a year past my 3 year term on my Bold 9000 (track ball just now getting finnicky).

Hey !! pick me !!! I'd love to try the new blackberry ! After a few months with a HTC One X, Android is just not for me, but I can't afford a new phone ! :'(



Me, please :)
My Curve 8530 is constantly giving me the blank white screen. This will be my 5th time reinstalling the OS and I can't wait for BB10!

You guys always have great contests. If I win I could show all the ones that I know why I was waiting for BB10, and not going to the iCult, or getting Fat on dessert.

Happy Holidays to one and all. Just eagerly waiting for BB10 Hope My old 9780 will survive till the release date.

Good luck all !!!

Please pick me as the winner of the BB 10 smartphone contest. I constantly check crackberry along with the other mobile nations websites, and podcasts.

I was an early adopter of the BB Storm 9500. I turned down the iPhone that my organisation offered me for reasons of functionality. BB is still the most useful device for getting things done, which is why I continue to own one, paid for out of my own money. I now have a Torch 9860.

It would be the most clearly logical evolution to become an early adopter of the first L-series BB10 device. This is my entry to be in the running to bring about this scenario.

This would be great since my upgrade isn't till May! No matter what though I'm repping #BB10 #teamblackberry #Blackberry #Playbook to the fullest. I visited my grandfather at a veteran's hospital yesterday and talked two nurses and another patient's daughter into getting PlayBook over the's wat I do. People are interested when they find out they use QNX everyday. I love the direction of the company now.......This is a war_ I've picked my side^ Thanks to the CB team for the path^

can't wait for bb10. i started using blackberry when the first storm came out and am never going back to anything else!

I would love to be able to show the BlackBerry unfaithful why they need to return to the BEST platform for ALL things mobile! Thanks for making me not wait another til my contract expires to do so!!!

Love to get my hands on a new BB10 before it launches in India! Still like my 9810 though - its just a year old.

Been waiting for years since I lined up outside Verizon for the Storm to come out....Can't wait to get my hands on a BLACKBERRY 10 device with a keyboard and 4G, what a phone it will be. I'll be out there first day it comes out to get one if i don't win this.

The years of waiting are coming to an end!

Good luck everyone! Even if I don't win, I will still get a BB10 device. It would be awesome to win though. :)

This would definitely be the perfect Christmas present from Santa Claus. Thanks in advance and Merry Christmas.

I'd love to Win a free BlackBerry 10 phone in our CrackBerry Santa Contest!! Please pick me CrackBerry! I LOVE YOU CRACKBERRY!

I love the product that you guys have alway put out, regardless of all the new phones that's out there. At lease I don't have to have an app for simple things like group email and text messages. Keep up the good work

CrackBerry guys, you ditched me last time by not selecting me for the grand prize... so this time i'm looking forward to get it... :) and a news stating "you have won BB10 L series device" to begin the year... wow... that would be one amazing feeling... :)

coal or BB10 qwerty phone? hm.. hopefully the bb10 device! please and thank you santa!

i feel like theres a slighter higher chance of RIM BB10 discounts for ol' faithful BB users than winning it but im still crossing my fingers! imagine the price on these bad boy devices!

I'm not sure how the winner gets picked, but I'm going to keep entering these contests hoping to win. Nothing but BlackBerry for me!

i wanna scream and shout and let it all out, and scream and shout and let it out.
you are now rocking with RIMPIRE and Str2010 Beep!

Its an awesome fone.. Specialy the peek thing. N being fond of BB, I wanna have BB10.. Have used 2 blackberries and its time to have a new one.

Lets prove Santa is real!!!!
want it and iv been relatively good! i will promise to be better if i have a BB10 phone :)

My wife decided to jump ship and get an Android last year when her BB (after 2 years of service) stopped working. I, however, have stuck with Blackberry for the past 7 years. Even through all of the frozen screens, battery pulls, and long restarts. Sure, all of those things have made it hard to stay loyal at times, but in my opinion, the good has always outweighed the bad. Also, I understand my Blackberry in a way that usually allows me to avoid those unfortunate scenarios that every owner has experienced.

I'd love to be able to get the L Series BB10 phone for my wife. I miss seeing her on my BBM chat list. Also, I want her to understand why I've been so incredibly optimistic about Blackberry these past few years. I know it's a slim chance, but I hope you'll consider my entry!

I registered just to get a chance at getting a BB10 phone as soon as possible. If not, I'll have to wait until my provider gets one.

I would love to be a winnah!

I have to admit I'm disappointed there's no BB8...It could have been "BlackBerry 8, The Ocho".

Would love to win a BB10!

Now this is 1 phone I must have!!!! If only I had the cash to purchase it with!!! God Bless the man or woman who will buy it for me...

Everything about you attracts me. I try to let go, but in the end, you're always on my mind. YES! I want you, I need you my little BB10. Mmmh, no doubts... soon you will be mine. MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!! With love.....

If I don't win then I'm going to have to buy it, but my christmas bonus would be finished by then! So please pick me :D

I'll be a kid again and thank Santa if this dream comes true :) but for now, BB10 : bless me -Usorama

Merry Christmas CrackBerry! Thanks for an awesome contest! I would really love to win, but the BB10 launch is going to amazing either way! My PlayBook could really use a little friend.... (my fingers and toes are all crossed : ) )

The chance to win a BB10 Device? Hell yeah. Since I'm a PlayBook owner I can't wait for the new BB generation of phones :-) WANT WANT WANT :-)

Happy Holidays everyone in the Crackberry nation. Thank you for this great opportunity for the chance to win a Blackberry 10 device. Good luck to everyone....but I would love to be the winner of this one! Either way I can't wait to get my Blackberry 10 device paid or otherwise!!!!

I would like to thank Blackberry for designing the user friendly phone. I have my device for 3 years never had any problems with it and I still think it is the best phone ever!! I love eat sleep drink my blackberry if i left it at home by accident I feel naked empty with out it . I would love to have the newest addition and will treasure it.

i will use blackberry as my hand phone only because i dont trust and dislike its OS and design at all.FAITH FOR BLACKBERRY.

Wouldn't be the only thing I want for Christmas but the new blackberry would definitely help me get through the next years of the cell phone wars until BB comes fighting back.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Years'!



I have a Birthday coming up in the new year! I would love a new Blackberry device to help continue the success of organizing my life....

It will be very nice to win a blackberry 10 device..I have never won anythign in my life..Mrs. Claus let's do this :D

Here we go, from Italy as well
Let's go BB10, show us was you can do.
And Happy Holydays to you all.

I know its impossible for me to win this contest. But at least i believe in you guys will give me a chance to have a gorgeus BB10. Please dont let me down...

Blackberry 10 phone would be an early Christmas present for 2013! Hell Fuckin Yeah!!!!!!!!!!

I am every excited over BB10!! I still remember when I got my first BlackBerry back in 2009, I was at the Verizon Store for over an hour debating which cell to get. I chose A BlackBerry Curve and I'm been hooked since. I can't stop bragging over BlackBerry and now have family, friends and coworkers looking at BlackBerry again. I would love to win a new BlackBerry 10, but it's okay if I don't. I am so looking forward to owning the beautiful device and to show it off to all those doubters. I never lost faith and will always be a proud BlackBerry owner!!!

I joined just to take part in this contest! I see now that there is much more reason to be registered! Great site!

When folks see I have a BlackBerry, I often hear, "you still have one? BlackBerry's dead." I always respond, "not yet. Just wait. 10 will change everything." I'd love to be able to show them right away and prove my point, and a shiny new device on launch would definitely help!
