Re: Blackberry Port-a-thon Reward

Nope, not yet, but I would assume that they will start sending out emails in the new year (the email they sent us said that they would start sending out emails during the week of 2nd January)

Re: Blackberry Port-a-thon Reward

Did they contact you first through email or send it to the address you gave to the company that delivered the Playbook?

It's been a while since we gave the information and it just so happens that I've moved cities since then :s
