* 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.

Never lost faith in RIM even when the stocks dipped down! Hopefully you'll hire me when I graduate!

I can't wait for BB10! My wife and I are due for an upgrade, and instead of waiting she went and got a Galaxy S3, and I told her she will never touch my Blackberry 10 phone when I get one... TRAITOR

#PICKME! BB10 Is The Future !!

Well I left blackberry year ago cause it was falling way behind in the smart phone world, so unfortunately the only way I would return is to receive a free phone or even a trial phone that I would give back and then purchase one. I have spent a lot of money buying phones and the price of them is getting out of hand, so use this as my entry.

Dear Mrs Clause,
Please could you tell Mr. Clause to put a Blackberry in his Sackberry. I promise I'm no Crackberry!
I've been a very good Berry and this will make me a Merryberry!
Thank you Mrs Clause x

Oh Blackberry! (using Oh Christmas Tree music)

Oh Blackberry, Oh Blackberry!
With the 10's the newest Blackberry...

Oh Blackberry, Oh Blackberry!
I've always dreamed of you Blackberry...

You've made me fall on you at first sight,
I'll hug you true to my heart with tight...

Oh Blackberry, Oh Blackberry!
Please be with me on January...

I got on board when people were jumping ship...or should I say sheep? And I'm onboard til the ship shows em all they were wrong leave.

I've been waiting a VERY long time patiently for the BB10, and am enjoying supporting the PlayBooks at work and at home, and would REALLY love to have the next iteration of BlackBerry technology!!!!!!!!!! (Please note the 10 exclamations)

Mrs Clause, I write this very dear post to you,
To ask a great big favour, I'm guessing you have a clue.
That this Christmas, please, I can think of no better gift,
Than a brand new BB10, which is at the very top of my list.

I do not wish for money, nor a pretty new party dress,
Just a brand new BB10, I could not want anything less.
My iPhone 4 rubbish, and I never should have changed,
"The iOS is better" all the greedy salesmen claimed.

2012 has been rough, with work and romantic blues,
I've also been terribly sick, turning all types of greenish hues.
But this isn't a sob story, I just wish for some luck,
To win an BB10, cause my iPhone sure does suck.

I will be the first to admit, I haven't always been good,
I have not always behaved myself, like I probably should.
I may not be at the top, of Mr Clause's nice list,
Like the time I meant to be DD, and instead came home quite pissed.

My piece of shit iPhone 4, who's contract has so long to go,
dies on me every second day, and never lets me know,
when I have a new message, or time it's to go to work.
Instead it just stays silent, I swear the phone's a jerk.

I often dream of the days, back when I was happy,
I had a beautiful BlackBerry, never was it crappy.
It was a dream to use, and always beeped on time,
I wish I never upgraded, I wish it still was mine.

Here I am left struggling, with an iPhone that won't work right,
I miss my beloved BlackBerry, and it would be a great delight,
To wake up Christmas morning, with a brand new BB10,
My iPhone will be binned, I'll never leave BlackBerry ever again.

I am sooooooo excited for the new BB10!!!! My whole family have always had Blackberrys wouldnt change it for nothing. We also, love our phones, buisness, pleasure, and more. I hope to be one of the blessed ones tro get one!!!

Love you Blackberry!!!!

BB10.... been reading about it.... been talking about it.... been dreaming bout it .... and now trying to win it...

Just like everyone else, I would love to win a BB10. I hope this new launch will revive BB and rub it in the face of those who jumped ship to the iPhone or Galaxy ;) I love my BB 9900 and still defend BB to anyone who will listen :) Happy Holidays team Crackberry and everyone else posting :)

My mom would love this phone she has been a bb fanatic for years she has the original torch she is waiting for bb 10 to come out instead of getting a note 2

I'm the first person from Thailand to register. I would love to have a new BB10 phone. Can't wait to see the new technology platform from RIM. I'm still a true believer in BB !!

Merry Xmas to all!!!

Not trying to be greedy, tried posting earlier but something went terribly wrong, pb died so don't know if my post went through, I've search and I don't see it, but here we go wish me luck and let the best man or woman win

Niiice. Eager to see how the BlackBerry 10 devices compare to their predecessors, and how developing apps for them will compare...

BlackBerry 10 is here to Reign
Making everything else(Apple, android) Drain
Please make me drench in Rain
With that of Blackberry 10 Wine!!! :)
.....And the Phone will be Mine.... :)

On christmas dreams would become true... so hurry up santa and bring me the new blackberry!




I'm not the first to register here, but still I want to be the lucky one. Pleeease, let it be so!
Merry Christmas :-)
Sincerely yours, Mary.

All I want for Christmas is a blackberry, a new blackberry, a new blackberry!
All I want for Christmas is a blackberry, so i can call to wish people a happy Groundhogs day!

(can't wish them a Merry Christmas if the phone isn't out till Jan 30th)

I would love to get the new BB10, but from where I am sitting it will take some time before I am able to.

From what I have been reading in Crackberry it is a very exciting OS. Wonder if Blackberry would consider developing their own laptops with BB10........

Well I bought myself the Playbook and love it and have a very old mobile (hubbies old one) so would love to get the BB10 phone for my late January birthday - how awesome that would be. Thanks Crackberry for organising this.

You know I would love to win this, but I have only just upgraded to the 9900 and I'm loving it, so give it to the person below me if I win.

Merry Christmas All

Or Happy Holidays if you prefer.


I never dreamed to have one because its a bit expensive for me right now thibb!s would be a great chance to own one #bb10

New on Crackberry & proud... enjoy this holiday and thank you crackberry for everything !!
remember this holiday is about bringing joy and happiness

I have been a loyal Blackberry user while everyone else has gone astray. I absolutely love my Playbook!! I am so excited to see the full screen version. Yay for the bigger screen! Can't wait!! Getting one for free would be the icing on the cake!!

I would submit my name as a recipient for the BlackBerry 10 Contest having over the year’s setup, provisioned and support some 20,000+ BlackBerry devices throughout the country at all levels in corporations, small & medium business and for individuals personally for their requirements. This would be a tremendous gift to receive one of the first BlackBerry 10 devices in a new era from RIM.

I would love to win something :) and am hoping BB hits a home run and is back into the smartphone arena!!

' And of course, we're CrackBerry... ' epic!
Yes you are and you guys are awesome!
Even if I don't get anything... you guys will fill up some of us with really, really pure happiness!

Greetings from Germany, happy holidays and a merry christmas,

i know there is a slim chance of me winning but it sure would be a god send if i won seeming as i will never be able to afford a BB10 device

Winning this would be totally awesome.
Somehow I don't think my carrier (Koodo) will have top tier BB10 phones at launch so it means waiting, paying full price, or switching to a more expensive plan on a different carrier.

Saying I would love to win this goes without saying. I'm a loyal BB fan and defend the company to anyone and everyone who thinks that it is not the the best phone to have. Happy holidays to all.

Ho Ho Ho! would be a very good extended holiday season for a new black berry. I think I'll keep my stocking up for some added good luck this year!!

I guess I'm just like everyone else, I'd like to win an IOU for a BB10 device. But, how often can I enter this contest?

I haven't bought a blackberry since the 9800 hit the market. The torch has been everything with extended battery life. The bold 5 and bold 6 haven't matched up. Only hope the 10 would bring more to bb. If so, I would love to have one, cos this phone needs a upgrade.

Haya, seen this contest and I think its a lovely idea!

By the way, I want to wish everybody Merry Christmas from snowy Austria =)

I could be the last and have the best chance bb10 in brooklyn why not....i can take it to my first brooklyn nets game :) :) :)

Please, Please, do not forget Spain, it is a beautiful country with a lot of people loving BB, we have not forgotten you, and never and never we will forget you and our BB, old or new BB. Be lucky for all, and congratulations for the winner (I hope the winner is a former lover of the iphone or android. 2013 will be the reconquest of ttime lost those years ago, I´m sure of it). For Spain, for Crackberry and for BB10.

well, i have had a pearl, an 8330, a tour, and three 9650s

this is about the only way i can get a blackberry that isnt years and years old. hook it up!

My current phone is the BB Storm 9500 and unfortunately the phone is starting to fail. I would love to win a BB10 phone for Christmas. Good luck to everyone! :)

Don't know what to comment on this post so I'm just gonna say how much I love RIM for giving us the smartphones we all know as 'BlackBerry'.

About two years ago I had an iPhone (and I'm not going to lie) I thought is was the worlds best phone and used to look down to BlackBerry users and in January 2011 my Aunt sadly past away (RIP Aunty Margret) and at the reception I got together with all my family and friends with all their BlackBerry's exchanging each others PIN for BlackBerry Messenger so everyone can stay in touch with each other with lost relatives and friends so later that month on the 29th of January 2011 I bought myself a BlackBerry (a 8520 to be in fact) so I too can stay in touch with friends and family, and boy was I shocked what BlackBerry can do for me and help me through my day to day activities from the BlackBerry Messenger to the smooth emailing client. Yes I could use email on my iPhone but the email client on my Blackberry was more easier, more fluid as well as smooth and more effective the way I could set up multiple emails as well as create a Blackberry email and keep them separate and easily could see all messages in the 'Messages' application which has all of your messaging notifications for example email, social networking feed and BlackBerry Messenger conversations. Another thing I like about the Blackberry is the calender which I find much more organised then any other phone I have had to date. also the BlackBerry's battery life was superb to me I could easily get a day (maybe more) usage out of it and to be fair I am a heavy user, my old iPhone however was absolutely dreadful I averaged six.. you heard right SIX hours usage! To cut things sort before I write a story. I am so proud of my decision to swap my iPhone to a BlackBerry and for as long as BlackBerry lives I forever will be a BlackBerry user and proud to be!

Just to add about the new coming BlackBerry 10 devices I am very excited for this to arrive as all of the existing and new BlackBerry users (and those to come) even though all of us have been waiting a long time for this and had to keep our motivation to a maximum but its safe to say and I'm saying this on behalf of all of us... these last couple of months where we have had sneak previews of its capabilities and its 'leaks' it has made us act like children in a candy store "We want it, we want it now!" definitely will be pre-ordering this as soon as!

I do hope this can revive RIM so they and us can be Blackberry active forever. I know I have a slim chance on winning this competition and hope whoever wins this prize they will worship the device as a lot on blood sweat and tears have gone into making this magnificent device. I might not win this but I'm glad to tell people my story and how excited I am for BlackBerry 10!

Proud owner of a Blackberry:
2 Curve 8520
1 Curve 9320
2 Torch 9800
1 Playbook

BB Believe!

Like many other Blackberry users I love my RIM devices (Blackberry 9860 touchscreen phone, and my Playbook) I couldn't be without them. I can only hope like everyone else that I just might be incredibly lucky to be selected. Anyhow, the best of luck to everyone that enters.

What a wonderful Christmas present this would be. There are still people who love Blackberry and I am one..please pick me :)

I love my 9900 and I can't wait to put BB10 on my PlayBooks, but I'd love to have a BB10 phone!

Great offer from you guys. i beleive black berry 10 and the L series will be the comeback tool for rim. and it is doesnt hurt to try. So impostiing 2013 The Year of BB10!!!!

Never been a late entry to contests like these. But then again, haven't won anything in such contests. Haha. If I do not win a BB10 here, I'll take a recommendation letter to my superior, to allow me to go back home for the holidays :D
Hope trumps luck.

Happy Living,
