    Post Is your Torch manufactured in Hungary?

    If any of you has a BlackBerry Torch made in Hungary, please post your experience regarding build-quality here.

    Are you satisfied with it or are you experiencing build-quality issues such as wobbly sliding mechanisms, button overlays that peel or lift at the edges, or stiff keys that do not have a click response?

    Let us know.

    I honestly start to think that the wobbly issue isnt in connection from the production place but from a different type of mechanism stocks...so its not a located problem!

    could be useful to disassembled a "good torch" and a "bad one" and check for hardware differences in the slider mecchanism to understand from where the wobbly issue come from...

    Pull your battery and look at the manufacturer's label.

    This has been done for a lot of different models. There's never any real correlation between being assembled at a certain plant and certain hardware defects.

    I have researched in several fora and, so far, I have not read of a user complaining of a Torch with build-quality issues.

    Default Made in Hungry have some problems..

    I am using third torch and I found that Torch which was 'Made in Hungry' had some problems with wifi connectivity and youtube streaming, also wobbly sliding, sound from back cover while typing using physical keyboard. Although torch from 'Made in Mexico' and 'Made in Canada' works perfectly fine.

    My first torch was made from Hungry had wobble issues, although my friend, same location no wobble. Changed to a Mexico build, no wobble. No connection on build location and quality IMO.

    Damn, you have a Made in Canada Torch? Wanna trade?

    Mine is Made in Mexico. The top part of the battery cover is loose. The first one I had, the battery cover was loose on the bottom. The top one is driving me nuts. Other than that, it's great.
