Second Chance Contest: Win an Unlocked BlackBerry Torch 9800 from!



Sooo cool...!!!
Please let me have this phone....
I'd like to buy storm 2 but I didn't find one till now...searching for 3 months though....

I would go absolutely crazy if I got this amazing Blackberry before the release date in Canada. I honestly can't wait until Telus releases this change in the future for all smartphones. I will forever be in debt to Crackberry if you due me the honour of choosing me to win this once in a lifetime opportunity. So, please, please please.

my bold 9000 is dying (had it for over 2 years) and I need a phone, please pick me!!! need it for work, living

I have been waiting for a touch screen BB for ATT since I've been with ATT. This phone looks amazing in every single way! Good luck to everyone! So exciting! My first contest :D

im new toblackberry phones and i love it...wouldnt mind having the torch tho cuz im tired of hearing the iphone and droid worshipers lol

Second chance..... woohoo!!! We love our CrackBerries and jump at the chance for a new one!

*Considering some us have to wait so long for an upgrade... :(

AMAZING! Thanks again for allowing us to have a shot at this new device when it may not be available to us for months or years depending on your upgradeability. Much appreciated, and would love to make the transition to the Torch!

Seriously need this phone. My Storm 9530 has been on its last legs for a while and not sure how much longer I'll get out of it.

I hope i can win this Blackberry Torch 9800. Its my dream phone.... touch screen and keyboard attached.... so Crackberry... please let me win .....

Since Rogers is taking so long to release the Torch in Canada, this would really be sweet...

After a few years in a situation where I couldn’t live on my own, the time has no come for a new start. My move to my own space is at the end of the month so what would be better than to have a new BB. I’ll have new furniture, microwave, laptop so please add the newest BB to my new start.

The blackberry torch is one of the best devices ever created. It fast, slick and all out SEXY. I love it and want one badly.

this would be a great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great great prize to win!!!!!!

I'm amazed of how much RIM has advanced. I'm a blackberry user and abuser but the Torch opens new doors. I love the fact of having a touch screen and a keyboard( suck it up Iphone) I can't wait to have a Torch on my hands to discover all the new possibilities. I soo need a Torch asap and this is the perfect opportunity because otherwise it would not be up to my reach.

Ive been waiting for this so long… but here in venezuela is not for sale yet… so… this would be a nice way to get one hehehe… i dont't want it, I NEED IT!!!!!!!

i remember as soon as it was leaked that the torch was coming i knew i had to have this phone. i have a storm 2 right now that i use, but to be able to have touch screen AND keyboard in the same blackberry? no contest! plus OS 6.0's webkit browser is gonna be awesome, I work for a rural cell company, i know this will get people attention when i walk into work with a torch!

I don't need it but I really really want it. I can't afford to buy it but I really really want it. Everytime BB has released a new phone I have gotten it cause I really really wanted it. But unfortunately I am currently broke down & busted like an I-phone 4. If chosen as the winner I will be ever so thankful, grateful, and up to date capable. I really really want a BB Torch!

I will give you my mother in exchange for this phone! Pleaaasseeee I need a blackberrry! & thanks cberry for all the great work and contests! (=

I Love CrackBerry. Since I currently own a BlackBerry Curve 8330, the BlackBerry Torch 9800 would be an amazing upgrade, and I would use it for life. I also live in Toronto where they are not available for purchase, so it would be a huge upgrade, and help to me..... Thanks CrackBerry even if I don't win its really amazing what you guys are doing!

bb 9800 is really cool and cute. more and more approaching the sophistication of body weight as the iphone. love it. I hope that winning this bb

I COnsider my self to be addicted to as i have it as my home page on all browsers and also check it for news updates several times a day :)
Count me in...hope i win...would be a sweet device to get.


Please....even I have a BB9700 I do want the BB9800 Torch as a Birthday Present.

08/30/2010 its my PLEASE!!!!Dont't forget about me.


Shall I dream that Christmas comes early this year? Please make my wish come true and let me have this beautiful piece of technological wonder....

Ok here's the deal tomorrow I is the day I quit doing drugs and alcohol three years ago. I have since met the woman of my dreams. She has fallen in love with the Torch. However we use US Cellular and its not available to us. It would mean the world to me to be able to show my appreciation to her for sticking by me than to present her with the new Torch. Thank you for the consideration.

I would love to have this phone. It seems by the time we are ready to upgrade our phones, we are behind the technology already. Would love to have one of the new ones!!

I've definitely been paying attention since it was first leaked on the internet! I've never won anything off the net so make this the first and especially the first one to have the Torch in Hong Kong where I live!

Would love to be sporting the latest and greatest BB Tourch around town!

Second chance might just be the opportunity for me to win!

Well, if there really was that much interest I guess. If everyone wants a free one why is everyone in the media so antagonistic towards the Torch?

Truth is...I'm completely in love with my BB Tour....six months after he came into my life. I never thought I'd love another.......but now......this hot new Torch has come to town. I must have him!!

Considering that in my country the Torch will take ages to come, and that I´m wishing to give this fantastic device a test in real life... this shouls be one of the few chances I have to get this device.
I presently own a 9700, with which I´m fascinated, but the 9800 is a real upgrade!!

So like I was saying, when I posted & my comment didn't get posted.
I've been in love with my blackberry 8900 since I laid eyes oon it. Today wouldn't
Have been such a better day to pick a 2nd change on this giveway.
My 2nd daughter's bday. She turns 11. Yayyyy. So again gimme my fix. I
Something stronger.. Give me this burning torch crackberry

What would it be like to go from the sluggish 8350 to the monster torch? ..I think it would rock my face off!

Since Rogers is dragging their heels this Canadian would _really_ love to win a Torch EH!!

Thanks for the opportunity!! :)

Crackberry, you are the best. I can't believe you're giving us another chance. And, since I didn't win the last one, I have faith you'll see fit to let me win this one. However, I'm not above begging for this, so...please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please, please let me win this.

Thanks for the great contests!

Here's to wishing. I want this phone so bad! Good luck to everyone but better luck next time, this phone is mine!!!!

Now's my chance! I (very sadly) left my Nokia touchscreen (limited as it was, being resistive) to move to BlackBerry because of it's unbeatable unlimited data plans here in South Africa. Having a Torch would make my dreams come true - capacative touchscreen with super-phone RAM and RIM's unbeatable data plans, what a combination!! Pick me, please please please!

Been a BB user for years. Would love nothing more than to be the first 'kid' on the block in southern Maryland to have one!

Seeing as the blackberry I own now is the 8330, I would simply LOVE this, I'm insane about blackberrys and I probably spend at least an hour a day looking at how I can improve mine (Can't afford to buy a new one monthly like the rest of you).

How do I get you to see my post without colouring the whole wall with it? How do I get you to see this? I don't know. But I hope you do and I really really hope that I'm the one whose name will be written in the contest winner with the yellow font.
And the winner is... anandogs

Was once and iPhone user and saw the light...I moved to the BB 8900...Would be amazing to re-up to the 9800!!!
Thanks For The Contest Crackberry :-)

Words just can't describe the excitement I'm having to see another kick-ass competition like this.
Another 9800 up for grabs.
I wonder which lucky bloke got the first one.
Oh well, fingers crossed on this one.
If I get this my Bold 9700 is going to my lil sister as she's been cribbing to me all year long to get her a BlackBerry.
Guess I'm not a good influence at all!

I will light the way for this non blackberry user and show them how better is the blackberry platform. Like I do every time they ask me what phone I have. ir

I am a crackberry addict and i use the oldest blackberry in Canada. I think this would make my day go faster :)

Thanks CB nation!
