Windows 7 Ultimate for BlackBerry - Enter to win a free copy and help out the relief effort in Japan!




Hello, I'm the developer. Sorry - this is my old CrackBerry account that I have always used. I just put up the OS 6 version for the 9650 and 97xx (9700 and 9780). I have switched around some transitions to better reflect the Windows 7 experience. Torch support is coming within the next few hours. I'll email CrackBerry so they can update the post.

Wow a 1/3 of all proceeds from this theme! That is so good, I wish more companies were like VSMDesign and would help out.
I pray for inner strength and hope for Japanese people to rise above the devastation which surrounds them at this time ♥

Sign me up scotty.

looks interesting wouldn't mind trying to convince my friends I installed a windows phone 7 os on my BB... some would fall for it and be jealous.


I'm the developer. I'm in the process of updating. The Torch version will be up in the next few hours, and the Style is next on the list. The current versions won't work, so if you win, just make sure the Style version is up. Hope you win.


I'm the developer. I'm currently updating for OS 6, I just need to let CrackBerry know so they can update this post. 97xx and 9650 are up, and Torch is almost ready to be up. Next in line is the Style, and then I'll do the rest of the OS 6 devices.

It just never fails, one contest ends, another one begins.

Free stuff that is great stuff....doesn't get any better than this.
I am due to win.

Windows 7 is the best Microsoft OS they have had yet. Been a fan since 3.1. would love to have this theme on my BB. Complete the package. Thanks Crackberry you guys are the best.

It ain't interesting. widows is windows. but we all love bb just bcs of bb. good luck for others guy who desperately want this free theme. Good luck. If you really wanna help japan, just go buy them.

Looks cool, the fish reminds me of a beta i had :( his name was neener! and i killed him in water that was too warm! :( RIP Neeener!

I've gotta say that I like this theme. I've purchased it and have to say that I am very impress with it. I like how you can change your wallpaper. I does give you a Window 7 feeling.

Good Job!!! VSMDesign.

OMG! Just imagine this theme looking on a Bold 9000.
Seriously, Torch n all, 6.0 n all, but this screen is amazing. I'd be honored if CB gave me this.

I dont have a flash player on my BB so the media player in W7 would be great to have. (BB Torch 9800 no flash,sucks)

Any theme with windows 7, is worth the investment. Your theme on my torch will be a great advertising investment. Call my name....

This would be perfect for my girlfriend who is still using OS 5.0 since it keeps her happy, and since I just moved her to Windows 7 she'll be in total BlackBerry love!

i hope that the money is really going to japan and not just some scam to make extra money off of,because it happends more than you think


Trust me, it's not a scam. The money will be going to the American Red Cross for the "Japan Earthquake and Pacific Tsunami" relief fund. Thanks!

i would love to win this theme and know it is helping a great cause. windows is a great program . thanks crackberry and vsm. what a very interesting idea this really is. i love to donate money knowing it is truly helping relief efforts.

Win7 on my Torch would look sweet! I've tried Android, OSX, and ipad themes and they dont do justice.

Windows 7 is a pretty sweet os also.

I wonder if they have custom backgrounds for the theme...because without that, windows 7 can't shine its best!
