Z10 Expansys
By James Richardson on 22 Apr 2013 07:43 am EDT

It's time to give away a BlackBerry Z10 once again. The folk at Expansys UK are donating us a Z10 which one lucky UK winner can get their hands on.

Just like our other contests the rules are quite simple. Simply leave a comment below saying why you think that you should be the one to win the super BlackBerry 10 smartphone and our magic machine will pick one random winner. Contest ends this Sunday at midnight. 

I must stipulate that that the contest is only available to UK residents so if you're outside of the UK, don't bother entering.

And a big thanks to Expansys for their generosity. Feel free to check out their full range of BlackBerry smartphones if you fancy going down the SIM only route. They are good guys.

Good luck to you all - Someone is going to end up very happy!

People of the UK - Who wants to win a BlackBerry Z10?

I would like to win one to give to my old man.

People of the UK?????? Don't you mean people of the World???????? Why are all the giveaways only for Northern America and the UK????
I want a Z10!!!!!!

I deserve it coz I am a terminally ill student with no money studying to be a doctor so I can go to third world countries and bring free health care to those in need. My 8 starving daughters all work for charities and my wife is Mother Teresa.

None if that is true. But I still want the Z10

Because my other half is so jealous of mine she keeps trying to pinch it, so I NEED another one :) haha.

I want to win because i used to be a blackberry administrator but my company moved offices and made me redundant. Now i dont get to play with blackberrys :-(

My blackberry bold died...I was given an iPhone as a backup. I desperately want to go back to Blackberry. Miss it so much and what better way to go back being a Crackberry user with a Z10!

I need one for my wife so that she stops bothering me to lend her mine. Please help her, she's still on an iPhone, the poor lass...

I would love another one to give to my wife who sadly is having to struggle on with an iphone 4s !!

Would love to have a third one in the family this one for my daughter. Pick me please... ;-)

Posted via CB10

So I can Bbm video with my other half he currently is using my old bold 9700! He needs the awesomeness of a z10 in his life!

Mrs is upgrading soon think the Z10 would convert her to Blackberry, I'm already converted and got the z10 but I got no one to BBM she will be the first ;)

Would be great to give to my partner! BBM video call her then when I miss her in Glasgow and I'm in London :(

I would like to win as I'm a first time BlackBerry user and have managed to persuade family and work colleagues to switch from am iPhone or Android to BlackBerry!!

hi, i think i should win a blackberry 10 as i have had to put up with Exspansys as a bad distributor for 4 years until we sacked them as a supplier and i need cheering up for all my bad experiences.

Hi I think I should win the blackberry z10 as I have so many of my friends on bbm and I don't yet have blackberry to bbm them all on, whatsapp is just not the same and I love the new layout and amazing camera specs on it :)

I want another in case I drop this one. I don't use a case since it hides the beauty of the phone.

Posted via CB10

I have one myself and would like to give one to my long distance girlfriend to take advantage of bbm video calls as she keeps nudging me to get an iphone like hers and facetime lol

It's time for me to move to a BB10 device, from my Bold9900. It's got to be the Z10 or Q10, and free (as in prize) would be a great option!

As a staunch defender of the Blackberry brand, as well as for sticking with Blackberry through thick and thin, I think being given the opportunity to experience the wonderful world of BB10 with a new Z10 would be just rewards :-)

I don't just want one, I need one as I've just broken my charging port and only have a few more hours of blackberry goodness remaining :(

I've been rocking a Storm2 for god knows how long, put up with it's random hangs, reboots and calling random numbers. Yeah there were opportunities to move to a bold 9900 or torch2 but I stuck with it as it was a full touch screen device with brilliant communication links compared to iphone etc (could argue the Storm1 was but it had 4 physical buttons). I want to win a Z10 as I want the full blackberry 10 excellence on a full touch screen so my friends go "what phone is that?" and I go "Return of the king of communications!"

I'm still using a two year old phone that is so slow and buggy that it sometimes struggles to make calls! Please help me become technologically acceptable!

Yes please! I can then give it to my Mrs and get rid of her iPhone...thereby ridding our household of the very last remaining piece of iOS junk.

Hi, not wanting to seem too selfish but it would be great to replace my faithful 9900 which took a dunk in some slush during the snow and just isn't right. Or my wife could do with a new phone - her 9790 hasn't been right for a while. Thanks Crackberry and Exansys

I'd love to get my hands on a Z10 for my girlfriend, would make it so much easier to keep in touch whenever I'm out of the country! Would love to be able to get on BBM Video with her!

I honestly have been waiting one for ages, for past few months I have been telling all my friends about it and to get one, trying to convince them as best as possible, but obviously since I don't have one and which I can't afford one I can't, I obviously will absolutely love to have one and cherish it like my own baby lol, well good luck to everyone! :)

I would love to be offered this Z10 to be able to do BBM text, voice and video with my sister in France as I now live on the UK...

Posted via CB10

Won one from blackberry through work, since then I've had grief from my wife who wants to swap her iPhone for a decent phone lol

Posted via CB10

Me, me , me, me, I'm not normally this self absorbed, but hey this is a Z10........ Ok I promise to let my family touch it, no I didn't say hold it, did I.

I gotta say the only thing better than a BlackBerry is two BlackBerrys so please pick me!

Posted via CB10

I'd love a backup to my Z10....this one is nearly polished a bit obsessive! I could even BBM chat myself!

Please can I win. My 9900 took a fall and is dying slowly and cannot afford an early upgrade. You would make me really happy.

yo dawg, I herd you were giving away a bb10, I need one so I can keep track of crackberry within my blackberry so i can surf while i surf

Is this a random pick from the comments or best comment wins? If the latter I am screwed :-)

Posted via CB10 from my great Z10

I would love to win a BlackBerry Z10 because I am probably a crazy fan of the OS and the phone itself. I have been waiting for this phone since the first rumour broke out of a new OS in the works, since before I even got a BlackBerry playbook (in Feb, 2012) and I have been waiting to get one ever since. I would really, really, really, really, really, really, really love to win this one :-(

To win a BB Z10, this is the real reason why I decided to do a PhD in the UK!!!!
If I don't win this time I'd have waste 3 years of my life.... :D

I should win it so I can give it to my mum who has cancer, severe epilepsy and osteoporosis.
We'd be able to video chat over bbm, and mum could load her favourite music on it.

Posted via CB10

Honestly, it will be nice to finally win something. Been entering sweepstakes and competitions as long as I can remember and nothing. Hopefully my luck has changed :)

Posted via CB10

I would like to win one for my fiancé then we can both keep in contact through bbm video and chat and never be out of touch again :)

Posted via Z10 :)

ARGH .....I wish I could win.

I should win because I'm a longtime supporter for BlackBerry and I do all the BlackBerry troubleshooting web pages for all carriers as my day 9800 is slowly dying on me and I would love a Z10 to carry on with my work progress outside of work.


There are definitely others with more deserving reasons than me, but what the hey - after four happy years I recently left BlackBerry for Android and the HTC One. Did I make the right decision? Would a free Z10 tempt me back to Black?! Answer - not sure, but I'd be happy to do my own smartphone round robin of sorts!

I love Blackberry and I want to believe that this is the ultimate Blackberry experience, unfortunately events have conspired against me and I am unable to afford one :-(. Winning this would brighten up my otherwise dreary life, lol.

I would love to get it to replace my Bold.
Actually bought Z10 on, the seller was a scum, so he got my money, and I got nothing at all. Waiting for the PayPal to refund, but the procedure would take more then 30 days...

I need another Z10 so I can give it to my husband for his birthday (which is on may 15th) :)

An s3 is not the doid i'm looking for and I dont want a "one size fits all" iphone. BlackBerry's z10 superphone is THEONE.

Because I've been a blackberry fan since my dad gave me his 7220 to play with, I got myself a suretype pearl and never looked back. The Z10 is the best phone ever for me and everyone wants to use mine, I need to get one for my partner who has a rather knackered 9800

Posted via CB10

I'd like it to give to my fiance so we can screen share when I'm away training!

Posted via CB10

The guys at Expansys UK are super cool and generous to give away a super new Zed10 (in the UK z=zed) - can I have a black one and

Posted via CB10

I need to win it to give to my young daughter who's away at school so we can video chat on our Z10's.

Posted via CB10

you can get bored with you gf in 5-10 mins. But with Z10 I play for hours (2-3 hours) continuous with getting bored!! its awesome!!

By having a second blackberry phone, my split personality will be able to hold video calls with me. Thus, I should have this phone.


Phil & Bill

Pick me so I can give it to my bro and show him that BlackBerry is better than iPhone!

Posted via CB10

Because I've been using my BlackBerry bold 9700 for three years now! It's time I upgrade to the big guns. It will also complete my BlackBerry experience. Z10 and the Playbook :o

It would be a great opportunity to upgrade my 9860, and my employer supports BB10 enterprise mail too.

I would love to win one so that I could give it to my elderly parents who live far away and teach them the Z10's joys. I could use screen sharing to help them whenever they get stuck and chat to them using BBM video. I know they'd love it as much as me.

Posted via CB10

I think Blackberry is great and thoroughly enjoyed my experience on my Pearl, Curve, Bold and Storm. As you can see some great phones there but I have definitely suffered with the best of them. I am confident that Blackberry has returned to winning ways with the Z10 and I am chomping at the bit to give it a try, unfortunately none of my friends have one and I do not have the money to cancel my contract to get one. My pledge if I were to win is that I would praise and show off the Z10 to all my Android and iPhone wielding friends so they know exactly what alternatives are out there! I would hope to convert a good few of them lol. Anyway great competition, thanks guys and thanks Expansys for giving one lucky person this great opportunity. Sam E.

Because my Z10 needs another Lady Z10 to snuggle up with whilst it's charging on a night.

Posted via CB10 using my awesome BB Z10

I really would like to win this! I have a curve that's starting to fall apart and this would be the perfect upgrade!!

I left BBs after having the original Storm. I'd like to come back to BB now that they finally have a great mobile.

Please for the love of God let me have the BlackBerry Z10, I have always written on the post for a gift now can I have this one, most appreciated if I do

I'd like to win so that I can give it to my little sister who is getting frustrated from her current android phone. I've already convinced my elder sister to BlackBerry and my other younger sister inherited my 9800 when her iPhone went kaput. Just wanna grow the BlackBerry family!

Posted via CB10

Would love to win this; my 9900 just doesn't cut it anymore so I bought a Nexus 4. Would love to compare BB10 to Android and this would be just the device to do it.

Having owned a BB9700 for the past 4 years, I would love to experience the new Z10 and its new OS.A loyal blackberry fan!

I have been in the BlackBerry family for 3 years, brought in by friends, got a curve 9330. Got one for my girlfriend and my sister. Got a playbook for me and my sister. And got a curve 9350 last year. I would like to progress to the BB 10 os, now that would be bliss

I would love to bring the blackberry project to my boy who has autistic spectrum disorders and release the potential of his PlayBook

Posted via CB10

I would dearly love to win this for my wife who was very disappointed she didn't win the Z10 at the local event on the recent Blackberry10 Tour .

Apple and Android thought they had captured the smartphone market, little did they know that Blackberry had the Z10 waiting backstage.

Posted via CB10

Because my current phone (at least two years old) won't turn on and my backup is an at least 5 years old Sony (which does at least have better battery live than the two year old phone :-))

I want it as I never win anything. Except the lottery, the woman of my dreams, the best job in the world, the lottery again and the golden ticket in Willy Wonka's chocolate bar.

Always wanted to try a blackberry heard good and bad things about them but want to form my own opinion.

I will use the winning Z10 and call it 'Give it Go'. Then I will let my friends that have an Iphone and Android phone to use it for two weeks.......... then they will realise BlackBerry is back with a bang and want to upgrade :)

Posted via CB10

I'm on a Z10, my Dad is now on Z10 but my Mum is still on an iPhone 4! This is the reason I should win, I need to get my whole family on Z10's
