    I've brought 5 people into the fold (of course I had to buy the PlayBooks first and the ones that weren't Christmas gifts they paid me back LOL).

    I have 2 more eagerly waiting to join in (my kids - I'm looking at buying 2 of the 3G/4G units when they come available so they'll get my current ones).

    I'm in for some PlayBook selling.

    Deathcommand, you are certainly on the move. I'm feeling the heat! I gotta keep working it. Just kidding man, great job! Six Playbooks is awesome but don't count me out. I actually got a friend of mine to get one yesterday. He is a teacher and he does not have a BB phone but after I showed him the presenter on the BB Remote I could see his wheels turning. We will see though, I don't know what he will do about the phone.

    By the way, I went by BB today and the Playbook that was on sale on Friday for 199.00 is back to 499.00 so the people you helped get Playbooks should be pretty grateful. However, the PB on BlackBerry is still selling for 199.00.

    I believe that the probability of the Playbook going up in price is far greater than it going down or even staying at 199.00. I hope it does because it is really selling Playbooks but I think our friends will be happy when the apps keep coming (which is the only thing it is behind in) and the Playbook floats back up to say 299.00 for the 16GB.

    Here is the link. Some of the videos are now a bit dated but I'll keep working on them.

    Keep me posted on the BBM group and I'm all in. I joined team BB last April after owning all the other big name OS and the one thing I regret is not trying BB sooner. I've since converted quite a few people and would love to join this friendly challenge for the benefit of BlackBerry.

    My soon to be ex roommate and my mom are in for buying one each in the next couple of months. I advised them to wait for a couple of months to see if the 1.5 Ghz 3G Playbook will be released in a non-3G version.

    So if that happens, my count for this year is 6, and in total, about 8

    Wow. So many of us are getting the word out! awesome. Well, as it stands, for this year you will actually be ahead of me. I've actually gotten 12 friends and family to get Playbooks but most of those were last year. I've only gotten five converts this year but I'm looking at one more possible tonight (she is a friend from church - that actually got a BB after I showed her all they could do - that teaches classes and I've got a powerpoint, actually one she sent me, and an adapter for her projector so it should be a no brainer).

    Here is the thing, she is brilliant but not a techie and carries around an old laptop and cables, a mouse, a projector, an old ipod and a portable speaker. She could take all that heavy junk and replace it with a Playbook that fits in her coat pocket and actually improve her delivery during classes! for 199!!

    I can understand the 1.5Ghz is going to be awesome but I seriously doubt that it will be 199.00. I think the current PB is blazing fast so for the money I think it is a great deal. We will see though. Anyway, by that count we are neck and neck but the year is still young and BlackBerry should have a great year. At which point we will say "in your face naysayers!"

    I know we have a NICE bottle of wine, a BlackBerry T-Shirt (I made it, the front says BlackBerry and then Legion below it), and who knows what else people will want but for me the greatest satisfaction will come when we get to say "in your face naysayers!".

    Got my friend Connie to get a Playbook (total count for 2012 is now seven!) and today my friend Bill got his BB Torch 9810!
    I love helping people get BlackBerry products!

    I think the part I enjoy is helping them set-it up and just make the incredible capabilities of these devices look easy. Some buddies are heavy social network types (facebook, twitter, etc.) and some are not at all. I help set them up accordingly. Kind of fun and it helps them have a great experience they tell others about.

    Got RIM!

    O.K. I reviewed the thread and here is who is in and three others I don't know if they are in or just observing.

    BlackBerry Legionnaires ( I just threw that in ) in on the Get Playbooks to the People Contest as of 3/22/2012:

    guerllamo7 count 7 in 2012
    s7khan count 4
    playbookster count 4
    adozeneggs@aol.com count 10
    chrisy520 count 1 (working on 5)
    dapper37 count 5
    VanCity778 count 1
    Jeovex count 3
    13echo4 count 2
    double_j75 count 3
    deathcommand count 6
    The_Adventist count 5
    sir.dangerfield count 1


    O.K. So, I'll send you all an e-mail with the current standing (please update as you GPBTP ).
    The current prizes are:
    1. A nice bottle of wine ($50.00 bucks or more - I know there are nice wines for less but there is nothing wrong with a nice bottle above $50.00 bucks)
    2. A BlackBerry Legion t-shirt (Black - any size)
    3. A case for your BlackBerry phone.

    I'll send you guys a few more details via e-mail and I'll work on adding those of you that are O.K. with it to a BBM Group.

    Honestly, I am going to try to win but if I do great at this and someone beats me I'll be happy for you. Infact, this group should focus on the total count. Really the idea came to me because I'm a huge fan of BlackBerry (obviously I guess).
    I'm a fan because of the great things I see in the BlackBerry brand and the not so great things I see some of its competitors doing. I see BlackBerry as one way to keep someone from cornering the market and therefore keeping competition open and that is good for all of us. I'm using the Playbook because at this prices you will be seriously helping people get a great value as they join the BlackBerry family.

    Go RIM!!!!
    Game On!

    If there are prizes at stake are there any proof requirements? What is to prevent someone claiming 100 so far?

    I've looked at the profiles of all the guys that joined. These guys are good to go. No need to worry. These BlackBerry users have a long history of standing for BlackBerry.
    Just curious, you are not one of them so why are you asking?

    I'm the one putting up the prices and I'm totally comfortable with my fellow BlackBerry Legionnaires. It is a BlackBerry thing. We are pledging to work together, BBM eachother and all. To expose yourself as a cheat for a bottle of wine and a t-shirt in a community that you have been in for years is not how we do things. The prize just makes it a bit more fun and will give one of us some bragging rights.

    The real win will come from exchanging ideas on how to expose friends and family to the BlackBerry Playbook. I would not be surprised if some of the guys become friends in over the next nine months and a few of them fly over and toast the victor.

    However, since I am going to do quite a bit to win this thing I am keeping the PIN and user names of people I add as well as the receipt for all the cases I've ordered from CrackBerry. Not really as proof but as a way that I can help my friends and contacts have a great experience and show them that I'm not making any money on the thing. I just love BlackBerry.

    Here's the deal. My brother wanted to get a cell phone. I had him convinced he should get the 9900 or 9810. He then went out to Virginia Mobile without me and the salesman convinced him to get an Android phone. The selling feature was it was a "hybrid phone and doesn't need a data package but can surf the web when there is wifi".

    The bb phones all require a data plan in order to get them free right? Plus the monthly fee would be more if you got a plan.

    I don't think bb makes a dumb phone like this do they? Any advice?

    I'm trying hard! Showing off my PlayBook. And my new thing is making sure I send emails from the PlayBook with the signature that says the same.

    So far, one! But I'll step up my game! did you guys make aBBM group for this?

    But keep this thread going! It's the best thread, and idea, I've seen here in a long gone time! Fun!

    Oh man, I don't think BB makes dumb phones but if he gets a droid and has access to the internet for free it may be tough.
    I would just mention that if he gets a BB you can chat on BBM, even when you are traveling and share BBM music. Besides androids only push gmail but BB pushes all e-mail and it does so securely.
    I hope you get him to get a BB because he is your brother and it is nice to BBM.
    Good luck!

    I just sent a message on CrackBerry to you guys and I added you to my BBM. I'm sending BBM messages to all contestants and then I plan to submit a BBM Group. Hope to get it done by next week.
    One thing I do because I enjoy doing it is to use Scrapbook and post awesome postcards to facebook. It has the added benefit of showing that it was posted via Playbook. Another thing I do to everyone that gets a Playbook is add them to my VideoChat. I also suggest that due to the super low price they could get two, one for themselves and the other for a family member and still pay less than the competition.

    BlackBerry rocks!

    Good luck!
