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



I have entered so many of these draws because i really want to update my 8900... im not eligible with rogers to get a new phone for another 2 years so please help me out with a new torch :)

I just posted this comment off my Bold 9000, but I can't help but think how much better the experience would have been if I had posted it with the Torch.

This would be great if I could win this. Come on sunshine start shining on that dog butt this for me.

I have a curve 8330 and it hit the water on me about 8 months ago. I dried it out and it worked good up until about a month ago when it started acting weird. So a new one for me would be great :) Thanks. Oh yea and Good luck to everyone who is entering. (has all my fingers and toes crossed, carrying around my lucky rabbits foot and my four leaf clover.)

This phone is so amazing! My wife isn't able to upgrade until october and she wants this bad, hell I want this for her bad. LOL

this is the best phone that stimulates the sense of touch. whoever gets this phone is pretty darn lucky.

I want one soo bad and i hate having to wait in Canada.. Why does a Canadian company release phones in the US first.. it sucks being a Canadian

PLEASE I NEED THIS MY BLACKBERRY JUST BROKE. I was gonna wait and buy one but I need this like now. Come on crackberry let me win this one.

Shes doesn't want to go back to virtual keyboard, but likes a touchscreen, and doesn't want anything but a BB... Torch is perfect!

I want this phone, but cant leave t-mobile. Touch-screen, BB keyboard, and OS6... That rocks. Thanks Crackberry, you guys are awesome!

I have a cousin in Central America looking for a Blackberry and this would be a really fine gift for her.

I think its been long enough since I last won anything at all! The real question here is why wouldn't you pick me!?!?

I've never won anything in any kind of contest in ny life lol, can you guys kindly break that streak? Thanks!

I wish RIM had done away with the physical keyboard with this model. It makes the phone bulky and heavy. Plus I really don't trust this sliding mechanisms. Whoe ever wants a physical keyboard can buy one of the other models (the 9700 for example). The 9800 could have been a screen-only phone.

Maybe I have more luck this time....It`s not possible to buy it in my country yet....I would be really glad if I`d be the lucky one....:)

oh oh oh i want to win...pleasssse let me win. to own a torch that would be the greatest thing to happen to me....ever

Please guys at CB I would really love to be the first South African with a BB Torch and OS6.

Like we say here in South Africa....Lekker!

i love the torch always have been a blackberry user especially be email connected thank you blackberry!!! love the torch by the way11 hehe

Heck, I'm on Tmo and I know I won't be able to get faster than EDGE with a Torch but what the hey, I figure I don't stand any less of a chance at winning than anyone else!

another great contest by Crackberry! I would love to get this badboy on my hands as I would need to replace my half-functioned berry...

I hate my old LG and am probably the only person out of everyone that I know that still doesn't have a bb! Pick me please :( *crosses fingers*

I was trying to think of some creative sob story that would make you want to give this BB9800 to me just because you felt sorry for me. Like how my son grabbed my BB while he was in the bath and got electrocuted and now I need a new BB and a son. Or how my house was caught in a tornado and my weather app notified me in time to get to the basement but in gathering my children I forgot my BB and it was destroyed with the rest of my house. Or when I was on safari I was surrounded by lions so I played an mp3 on my BB of a hurt zebra and it was so realistic they ate my BB instead of me. But then I thought, it's just a phone, if I win I win if I don't then someone else more deserving than me will get it.

This an "Awesome" blackberry...probably the best they have created...I would love to win this phone...great design...filled with bells and whistles....and the design has a great feel...please pick me...

I've been stalking this phone since March or April when I first heard about the leak. I would log in to every day as well as do a Google news search, just to check for updates. I eventually subscribed to an RSS news feed for blackberry slider and blackberry 9800 for updates. I've been waiting to get my hands on this phone for many, many months!! But alas, now that it's here it doesn't fit in my budget right now.

For many years, I refused to get a Crackberry, but now I love it! I was just recently deciding if I wanted to leave my blackberry behind to get a touch screen but I wasn't extremely impressed with what was out there. Then Blackberry came out with the Torch. Since I love the Blackberry keyboard, this would be perfect! But since I do not have AT&T, I have to wait for at least 6 months in hopes that my carrier will carry the phone. I would absolutely love this phone!

Ever since I saw that the Torch was going to be released I have looked up the different specs and reviews, to see if I would want one. I do! It has to be one of the best phones out there. Not everyone likes the Droids & iPhone!

I would absolutely love if I won this!!!! I would be able to use my old phone as my business phone and this as my personal!!!!!!!

I would be the happiest person in the world if I had this pretty sweet phone .......................................I...WANNA...WIN..;)

Goooo Torch. I'd like this and have my Bold 9000 as a nice backup. even give it to my dad so he can use it for his real estate :)

Pretty pretty pretty please pick me? This would be the best birthday present ever, and I can stop working 40 hour weeks at my part-time job trying to save up an unknown amount of money to buy the Torch when it finally comes to Canada. Pretty please??? Pick me!

Just got my wife and kid new curves - there first BBs, no money left for me and I am still hanging on to my storm1

I need a new phone bad, just can't afford $600.. my touchscreen is giving up on life.. don't want a refurb but can't hold out a year for ne2 HELP!

Don't know if I can wait til the end of the month. Let's hope those new displays at Rogers get the missing 9800's soon.

The combination of the new interface and the touch screen is just great.. I don't wanna miss this change to get one of the greatest phones ever

I don't know if my first comment registered so.
I'd love to win one as UK release dates have not been confirmed and my 9700 was stolen in May ;(
Thanks for running the competition

Keep it coming. These contest's are the best. It will be even better when I win, then I can make the wife happy and not have to dish out cash to buy one. LOL!!! Hook a brotha up!!!

I would really love one, my dream phone. Keep up the good work, dont know what i would do without crackberry.

second time is a charm!!!!! LOVE THE TORCH, played with one at the local ATT store and just need it bad - totally a crackberry addict here

I disliked a lot of the reviews to this device because they didn't appreciate just what this device does for blackberry. I just want to win so I can show all of the iPhone 4 and Droid users what they are mmissing out on!

Crackberry I need my killer combination back... I got a iPad 3G and my 8900 just died on me and I need a new berry, that would be a perfect occasion to get back on track with full power... Can I get my power back please???

The new 9800 Blackberry is awesome and needs an owner who will appreciate it and care for it with great sense of adoration.

I would really like to win this new and amazing phone.

This is the first BlackBerry device which is running OS 6...
That is so awesome....!!!!
I really love this BlackBerry torch...
I hope RIM will make OS 6 compatible for many BlackBerry device....

I want this phone even if I don't win I have made up my mind and I'm giving up my verizon account and geting the torch because I'm tired of dealing with my blackberry storm 9530

Oh it would be amazing to get one of those!! I'm tired of having a crappy Storm which doesn't work anymore :(
And I bet my buddy would like this more cause he will get his bold 9000 back which he's lent me :p

I made the mistake of changing from blackberry to apple and i regret it everyday as fun as the iphone is i would love to have my blackberry back. please hook a crackberry lover up

It looks like the best BB I ever seen... Well... I ever dreamed... Hope to be the lucky one so maybe the first in Italy with this phon...

I could soooo use this new phone. My 8330 is about dead and I would have no problems changing to AT&t. The new Torch looks sooo cool. Thanks again Crackberry!!! Your the Best!!!!
