    Good luck everyone!!

    My pre paid bb sim doesn't allow for this app to work. It works on wifi but that won't really help me much...

    Yeah, unfortunately it does mean you either need to have family or friends with BlackBerrys or be an addict who doesnt sale old models you have owned. It does present a disadvantage for newer converts whose friends use iPhones or Droids...

    Some of the challenges also present a geographical disadvantage. i think it be sweet to get a pic with the CEOs showing CrackBerry on their phone, realistically speaking youll need to go to Waterloo to make that happen...10:1 says the person who does this wins automatically based on the point difference.

    Even some smaller challenges like the mall shot...hard if you dont live near a mall (there are people who do live in rural parts of the US)

    Overall though you can never make a challenge like this 100 percent fair for everyone so you do what you can to try and make an even playing field as much as possible. i do wish you could upload photos from your computer though....


    EDIT: Do not know how this post jumped to the near top....I posted this around 11:08AM, go figure...

    Yeah, it seems kinda hard to get some of these shots unless you carry around another phone or camera.

    Hey Kevin, can photo's of the PB be used in place of a BB phone?

    Alternatively is there a PB app that could be sideloaded?

    This looks fun. I think I'll join, but likely won't be going out of my way to get those odd pics. More interested in seeing what the Missions will be than anything.

    Unless its a mistake, someone already has 59400 points! How accurate is the leader board?

    Ah well... I do a couple for fun anyway. I used my same Crackberry username.

    EDIT: NM, just reread the blog post.

    Yeah, same. Every time I upload a photo it keeps giving me this

    Username is redefined as well. Looking forward to the challenge. I'd love me a 9900 (no cash!)

    I don't really care about the points, but I am doing the iNvasion one for sure. This is where you go to an iStore and load up as many CrackBerry web pages as you can. I think this is just hilarious !!!

    The bugs in the App are killing the fun.... It seems either their servers can't handle the load, or the app is buggy as anything. I was able to get 3 pics up and now can't, after 2 battery pulls and about 20 tries, nothing. Uncaught exception, application is not responding.

    First pic I tried to capture hard-locked my device on the camera, failed to capture the pic, and made me do a battery pull.
