The title pretty much says it all. Want to win a FREE BlackBerry Z30? Here's your chance.

We don't actually have one on-hand, so this is an IOU for the Z30 (if that's what it ends up going by) when it officially becomes available. We've heard all about it the last few weeks. It's been in loads of photos and videos and there isn't much left to the imagination at this point. We certainly can't wait to check it out in person but in the meantime, we're giving one of our lucky readers the chance to have a Z30 of their very own come launch day.

The Z30 will be the biggest, baddest most awesomest BlackBerry to date and I'm definitely excited for it. It will make a great addition to the BlackBerry 10 lineup and should make for many happy big-handed BlackBerry fans. 

So even though I'm on holiday in Italy for a bit, I couldn't help but think that what better way to keep the Z30 love flowing from abroad than with another great CrackBerry contest? 


To enter to win a brand new BlackBerry Z30 - just leave a comment on this post telling us why you want it. We'll run this one up through the end of the month (August 31st) then pick a winner at random. Who knows, we may even fire up another contest after this one ends. Good luck!

Win a free BlackBerry Z30 from CrackBerry!



I am a die-hard BlackBerry lover, even though my friends tease me for it. I would love to show off the Z30 and prove that BlackBerry is still the best! Also, the contest ends on my birthday, so that's a sign, right?

I want it but it's not for me it would be for my dad. He is old and has trouble with reading so I think the bigger screen on the z30 would be a food match for him.

Because my kids are more addicted than me to my Z10, and thay still "steal" it from me to play games, and I have no enough time to enjoy :)

I deserve to win the BlackBerry Z30 because a phone of that capacity can only be held in the hands of the worthy.

I definitely *need* a Z30. Love the Z10 but would love to have more real estate and power!

Posted via CB10

Being that I have and love my Z10 and a 64G Playbook, I would love to have the small, med, and large in the same style. I can pick which one to use depending on my mood.

I am proud of the brand and would love to be able to auction it off for charity. I currently have a Q10 and I love it and try to change over my friends whenever I can. Thanks for the opportunity!

Posted via CB10

Loving the look of BB10 OS but, as no retailers will let me test it, I feel it is too much of a risk to switch from WP7.8

A Z30 would solve this!

I REALLLLLLY NNEEEEED THIS DEVICE! I love blackberry and have stuck with them through it all. I use the devices specifically for work (non profit human trafficking task force). and the new one with the screen size and quality would make my life and job so much easier. You guys are great ! Thanks

Who knows if this is the last device created by BlackBerry? When I get it, I'd flaunt it to the whole wide world!

I want the Z30 for that awesome large display. Love my Z10, but would be so much better with a 5 inch Super AMOLED display!

I have the z10 and my fiancé has a q10. She has been asking for a bigger screen recently and this would give her a choice between my z10 or the z30.

Posted via CB10

I am planning to LOVE BlackBerry, and Z30 should be the reason for me to accomplish my plan.

Posted via CB10

Why would I want an A30??? Oh man, I'm so sick of all the doom and gloom being put out there every single day regarding BlackBerry. BlackBerry10 = Solid, smooth, secure. Z10= Amazing device, best I've every used. Q10= Fantastic phone for all the full keyboard lovers. A30= Masive device, sure to be a major player in the smartphone industry. BlackBerry is no where near done for, they are going to be here for a long time, regardless of what form they are here in, public, private or rebranded.

I'd love an A30, it looks at least as great as "The Z!"

I would love to win the z30. BlackBerry makes superb hardware and the blackberry 10 OS is amazing. The possibly of what it can do it endless and to have the z30 in my hand would be truly cool.

Posted via CB10

Since the beginning I always have the latest BlackBerry. I confess, I am ADDICTED! Who wants to buy my Z10? I want this big baby!

My 9810 is cracked all to hell. I wanted to get the Z10 but my brother already has it and we live together. Can't have 2 of the same phones laying around. Aside from that I only use blackberry no other phones reach my expectations. BlackBerry has been my choice for the past 7 yrs and it would just be so awesome to have the latest and greatest of the blackberry devices

Posted via CB10

I want it because it is the latest and greatest BlackBerry and plus in 6'4" and have huge hands so this screen size is more fitting for me :)

Posted via CB10

I never win a contest in my life..
I hope I win this one.. If I win I will side flips 10 times, then uploading to youtube.. lol

Posted via CB10

I'd like to add it to my arsenal of BlackBerrys. Many friends and family have been extremely impressed by my z10, this would just blow them over.

Posted via CB10

Because in the era of iPhones & Androids I stuck with BB and believed, owned one since 5 years and still have! I also come from the middle east so imagine the pressure of converting ;p

Its simple, more wider, large screen, HD enabled, more easy to type with big keypad, and so much more..!!! Blackberry its FUNTASTIC..!!

Posted via CB10

You said it...the biggest, baddest most awesomest BlackBerry to I gotta have one! I've had 8 BB's so far and need the newest. Enough said.

Posted via CB10

I'd love a Z30. I have a Z10 now and love it, but a Z30 would be my first foray into larger phones, and I could also use it to help promote BB to some of my co-workers who are fans of the larger screens. I dig the silver bottom and sides, the more rounded edges and the back looks beautiful.

Its like u saying that u will give the whole heaven .. :D ^_^ :D
Who will resist if get a chance like this .. I am " IN "

time to upgrade from my 9900!! been waiting for this phone. an upgrade compliments of crackberry would be awesome! please!

Why would I want one? Why wouldn't I! Bigger, faster, and baddest is definitely why I would like to win. Plus I could give my phone to a girl who really needs an updated BlackBerry.

Posted via CB10

I'm in. I had the note 2 and really enjoyed the size of the screen. Much prefer the BB OS over android on my z10 and would love to have the larger screen. Winning one would be perfect. Either way I will have one :)

I have converted 5 people to the Z10 and 4 to the Q10. If I win the Z30, I can show the people at work, what BlackBerry Is about.

Posted via White Z10

I would like it so I can show it off and spread the word of blackberry to all the non believers!!

Posted via CB10

I bought the Z10 on day one and I'm unable to spend the money on the new Z30. I promote Blackberry and it's products on a daily basis, and I would absolutely love to have this new phone!!

I would love to have the Z30 because it would be my first BlackBerry with a 5inch screen. Z10( previously owned) and Q10(current daily driver) are amazing, but change is always welcome!

Posted from Q10 and CB10.

"The Z30 will be the biggest, baddest most awesomest BlackBerry to date and I'm definitely excited for it.", best sentiment in the entire Crackberry article!!!

I want it as I'm disappointed with the z10 so that phone would make up for it and I DONT want to go to an android fone

Posted via CB10

Getting the z10 was life changing. I love touch screen phones now! (sadly missed the 9900). But now that I'm hooked I need MORE. Though spending even more time on awesome bb10 games might not be the best thing...

I could give my z10 to the misses and Finally start using bbm video on that beautiful screen. We both could talk to our parents as each pair shares a PlayBook.

Long live mobile computing! Long live BlackBerry!

Posted via CB10

Because it is what a full touch Blackberrty 10 should be.. in terms of possessor, battery, and screen size and along with the new OS 10.2.

Posted Via the Incredible Z10

A chance to win the biggest, baddest and awesomest blackberry to date? Why, I see no reason to pass up this opportunity :)

Posted via CB10

I need it for "advertising" since I feel that I'm the only one with a BlackBerry anywhere I go here in the U.S. Lol!

Posted via CB10

I have a 9900, a Z10 and a PlayBook. Thrilled with all 3!
I'm sure I would love the Z30 as well!

From Zed to U via CB10

I am a die hard BlackBerry supporter. So much that I pre ordered the PlayBook before launch in 2011. I was the first person in line at Staples. Soon after I got another one. Both 64GB at full price. Did I mention that I also get a lot of laughs for having a blackberry phone? It was heart breaking to hear that BlackBerry 10 wasn't coming to the PlayBook. I do have two Z 10s in my household again pre ordered but the Z30 would be the perfect replacement for my PlayBook.

Posted via CB10

I would love a Z30 because I am a BlackBerry fan and will remain a BlackBerry fan despite the constant negativity from the media and forum trolls. BB4LIFE!

I love my Z10, but if I won the Z30, I would give it to someone in my family, likely my dad as he has a Note. He loves technology, but I want him on Team BlackBerry. I know if he had this phone he would switch. I think the Z30 would be too big for me. :)

Posted via CB10

Is this the 'we are sorry ' gift to all the PlayBook owners ?

If it is, it better be good. No more half arsed attempts at appeasing the tech community.

If you have any faith in BB10 now is the time to show it .

The future of the company rests in your stewardship Mr Heins.

This isn't Mission difficult, this is Mission Impossible! Are you ready for the challenges that lie ahead Mr Heins?

Posted via CB10

I'd use that whole "it's almost my birthday" excuse (which is true), but I just really want that new phone.

I -deserve- it because I'm such a BlackBerry fan, I fell in love with BlackBerry the moment I bought my first BlackBerry 8330. I always had faith in them when they where making the new BlackBerrys 10.
I deserve this z30 because no matter what the other phones have to offer I find the BlackBerry way more appealing. No matter how crazy the other phones specs are, I find BlackBerry always better.
And finally, I deserve it because the z30 will give me more confidence to fight the other isheeps and phandroids back when they say that BlackBerry are not worth it.

Posted via CB10 on my Z10

Hi. I want it because it is the natural process to follow : Bold 9000, 9700, 9900, Z10 and now Z30.


Posted via CB10

Give me one, and I'll let everyone knows that BlackBerry is very much alive and kicking.. :)

Posted via CB10

If you pick this user at random we'll have a champion sporting Both a Q10 and a Z30 - and nothing sells better than a fan armed all the options when attending BlackTie dinner events.

BB10 has been awesome on my Z10 but I would love to win a Z30 and have that bigger screen!

Posted via CB10

I want it because there is too much free space in my pant's pocket right now (using a 9860 right now). I need to fill the space.

I'm proud of blackberry for coming out with new products.. I currently have the Z10, and it ducks cause it's do much selection... I wish I could win the lottery, so I could all of them Z30, Z10 white, Dev Alpha C (developers edition), Z10 (red edition), Q5 in black, and the Q10 in white.. dream come true

Posted via CB10

Me oh my, I'd take this over pie! I want a Z30 because I feel it will be more refined than the Z10, and it is pretty darned amazing!

I'd love to discover everything about this awesome device because I've been a BlackBerry fan for so many years and I just cannot skip this device.

I tell and show each and every person I see what a fantastic device the Z10 is and I know I'll do the same for the new flagship device. Whatever the name is going to be.

PS: enjoy your holiday :)

Posted via CB10 on my Z10

I want it so i can offer to my girlfriend and than we can both enjoy having the Best operating system ever :)

Posted via CB10

This would make for an excellent birthday present. :)

I'm also interested in the extra screen real estate as I often deal with attachments which would benefit greatly.

Trying to convince all of my family to move over to BlackBerry. Would be cool to be able to pass my Z10 or a Z30 on to someone.

Posted via CB10

I've fallen in love with my Q10, but I also keep hearing great things about the BB10 on a touch screen only device. Especially about the ease of use of the touch screen keyboard. Sad fact is though, I'm out of a job, nearly broke and have no friends who love BlackBerry (I know, I need new friends!) so I have no way to test a touch screen only BB10 device. Add to that the fact that the Z30 will have a much larger screen, which should make it awesome as a media device... Those alone should be enough reasons to want to win and/or own one. But if more reasons are needed I'd be happy to oblige ;)

I would like to have it so I could strap it on my back (like a backpack, except my size) and carry it around. That way I know when there's a call coming in, or update, or a new email.
That way when I watch movies or show documents to people. It'd be like in a movie theater, only standing.

Santos is my name; the Berry is the game.

cuz my 9700 just died on me and im feeling a bit withdrawn from bbm and my awesome bb keyboard maybe a Z30 with an awesome touch screen keyboard will work

I've yet to rock BB10 as my original choice {Playbook w/ BB10) didn't come to pass. Que Sera. A Z30 would be a good alternative for sure. Probably works better anyways as the Z30 dimensions will make it even more portable. Power in my pocket with this one!

Sign me up for the Z30!

Also: Glad you're getting some much needed R & R Kev!

I want one because a teenager I know is about to start culinary school, and I need every bit of help I can to save her from the sucking abyss that is Android. *cheeze*

LOL let's go Crackberry!

I would love a Z30 because of how awesome it is and how it would help to keep me moving. And if I win I will donate my Z10 to my brother so he can finally give up on that horrible DROID he has!

BlackBerry Z10 | Verizon |

Just because my girlfriend doesn'to buy a new BB yet (my old one is 'but' 2 years old...

Btw where in Italy are you? I'm currently in Livigno

I love the z10 but would like a bigger screen for games and it's my birthday at the end of the month

Posted via CB10

Why? Why not! (Not a fan of how BB dumped the PlayBook, but wouldn't say no to a free phablet-like doohickey. :))

Please choose me because I hate BlackBerry and this might help a lot for me to love BlackBerry back and the awesomeness of this beast my friends and enemies will definitely envy me and be jealous to the maxxxxxx.

Posted from the Amazingly Zed 10 for CB10

I would give it to my little sister who doesn't have a phone yet!!! I love BlackBerry and Crackberry so i hope to share it with her too.

Posted via CB10

I want to win one, because I think winning one would be the only reason I will be having the new Blackberry aside from that.. If I'm going to spend my money on a phone, it would most likely be a non-Blackberry device.

I love my Z10 but am looking foward to what BlackBerry has in store for us with the Z30. I'm sure it will be awesome and would love to try it out on launch day.

Posted via CB10

I want it because the increase in screen size will be welcome since the PlayBook won't be getting the update. I'm loving the way it looks so far, that huge battery an I want the dark theme lol!

Posted via CB10

Too often, I'm bumping with people who flaunts their S4s and notes. I wanna make them jelous n shocked with this stunning BB big boy !! The world really needs to know the power of BlackBerry now !! :-)

My eyes are failing me in my old age. as of this year I now have prescription glasses. I even changed the pointer on my computer to the large one so I could find it easier. so a large Z30 screen might make life easier

Now that it appears the PlayBook is not getting any more updates, the Z30 may be the next best (or even, dare I say it, better?) thing. Plus, I had my doctor check my blood type and he confirmed it's BB positive.

I want just to show off to my friends everyone is going samsung and I want to show them that blackberry is still alive

Posted via CB10

Because its like a PlayBook, but better? I need something to get that bitter PlayBook flavor out of my mouth! Lol

Posted via CB10

Because I love blackberry all the way, that's why I change the device every month and next time could be Z30 for sure

BlackBerry Z10

Hi need it! To forget my PlayBook, have the perfect companion for my Q10 and to develop apps using the new altimeter :)

I want it because it is bigger screen than the Z10 and only little bigger Device.

And of course...Its a new BlackBerry! :-)

I want one because I will love it berry much. And I will give away my z10 to reciprocate and spread the love.

Posted via CB10

With Storm Trooper Z10, I've learned to love full touchscreen. I'd love to get the Z30 to get even more screen real estate and better hardware.

I'd like one because it's truly representative of the concept of "moving forward." It combines a lot of the things today's top smartphones have while maintaining the security of the product and the uniqueness in its delivery. Another fine step forward.


I would love to win this for my husband... when he was eligible to upgrade his phone, I whined that I wanted his upgrade to get the z10. Now he has my old 9900. He always gives me his upgrade and he takes my old phones. It would be awesome to surprise him with this!!!

Posted via CB10

To prove to my wife that BB is the best thing out there. After going through 4 Z10 because they kept burning form some odd reason and not been able to explain why she went back to an android. Due to this is the upgraded version of the Z10 it should have all bugs fixed and looks so much better than that android she has.

The question shouldn't be why you would want one, it should be why would anyone in their right mind NOT want one!?!?

(clutching lucky coin...)

Posted via CB10

Please and Thank You! :) such a sweet looking smartphone - would be a nice step up from my 9900!!!!

My BB died last week, and i was forced to be the cheapest phone(android) I could find. I'm missing BB so much.

I want it because I wanted a BlackBerry phablet but couldn't stand using my iPhone for that much longer! Pleasee pick meee I really want this one!

Posted via CB10 using my flick-ity keyboard :D.

I love BlackBerry.And if the Z30 was available today i would go buy it instantly.I love the the OS 10.

BB Z10 Rocks!

I have no choice but to give up my Q10, and I'm being serious, I have no choice :( so imma need a new device, and the Z30 would cove this for me!

Posted via CB10

I don't get Labour Day, Thanksgiving or Halloween presents...
My Birthday isn't for a long while..
Christmas isn't for a long while..
My Phone contract doesn't end for a long while..
I really need this awesome new phone!

I'll give my z10 if i won the z30, i wanna explore more on the development side of the z30, if i win it off course. Happy holiday in italy... visit indonesia sometimes will ya.. *peace..

Posted via CB10

I need it
Reason : I'm addicted to the z10 I would like to be more addicted with the z30

Posted via CB10

bigger screen, looking good..
I'm in, can't wait to get one, who knows, maybe I'll win one with CrackBerry!
