    Depends on where it's made. I've had those characteristics in 2 different Bolds
    that I've had.

    They are all most likely the same, but there could be very slight differences in the types of materials used, etc. Nothing that I think would effect the performance or anything critical.

    I just took my bold back to telstra, and they replaced the handset (it was under warranty).

    The handset I got this time was definitely heavier. Felt much, much more sturdy.

    Not that i'm complaining!

    This is strange I never heard anything like this before. It could just be where it was manufactured. I don't see anything with canada one since I have one. It is most likely hungary or other that may have this problem you described.

    There is actually some difference in keypad as well. I believe there is a bold with a QWERZ keypad arrangement as opposed to QWERTY.

    Here in indonesia, the QWERTY version is more expensive.

    My son and I both have 8900's. His is heavier, back cover is loose, and just feels totally different. Didn't check where they're made though.
