    I just ordered a new one from Amazon.ca since they now have new stock. This way I won't get burned for shipping back to BB!

    Q10 was (Now too?) made in Canada right? Classic is made in China. Maybe that's why Q10 had better build?

    I am ok with my classic and fortunately does not have the lightbleed (there is a little on the keypad if I turn the screen on really bright).

    I love the keyboard, that's why I come back to BB from the smartphones (Galaxy S3, iphone). Screen size doesn't bother me much since I don't really surf the net or play games that much.

    No wish to take issue with the poster saying that the Q10 was made in Canada ;not mine, made in Mexico (5). So, it is just poor quality control on the part of BB . The infamous battery problem, cured by wedging a piece of plastic under your battery hardly inspires anyone to admire the quality of the device. It's like having a new window fitted and being told to wedge cardboard in if it rattles.

    Foxconn in China made these phones. They are only about $399-$419 brand new. If they were built more premium, they'd cost $500-$600. Take it for what you will...

    I was kinf of worried that the quality coming out of Foxconn may not be the same as previous BlackBerrys, but was not expecting this. I just hope that mine was a one off, but since some others have also reported similar gaps, makes me wonder whether lower than normal quality from Foxconn will be something we have to live with as a common thing in the future. Not good!
    Foxconn doesn't have anything to do with it. These same issues were around when Blackberry moved to the trackpad instead of the trackball. These forums were littered with quality issues from crooked trackpads to gaps causing the light bleed like you're experiencing. Getting a perfect device with no quality issues has always been a crapshoot.

    I have a Verizon Classic and it's perfect. I suppose if I took a magnifying glass, I could see a gap. Either swap it, return it or enjoy it!

    I've had flawless devices up until Foxconn. Just my experience though...

    Love my Classic. The light bleed between the keys is going to be found on every single BlackBerry keyboard you get. I have had SO many BlackBerry keyboards and they all have essentially a grid of 'light bleed' between every key and on every physical keyboard I've had. It isn't a manufacturing problem or a design issue. What it is, is - do I really have to explain? Whenever there is light behind something and there is any kind of gap, guess what? The light shines through that gap, no matter how small it is.

    I guess I should try and return every single BlackBerry I have ever owned. I wonder what my chances are of getting them all replaced?

    My Classic and my Q10 keyboards look fantastic, even with the practically perfect 'grid of light' that I can see between the 'grid of keys' - you're never going to find a Classic without this. So good luck perpetually exchanging your devices in hopes that somehow mankind has altered the properties of light, how it interacts with, and shines through gaps between materials residing in front of it.

    Most people who choose a Classic will not notice any 'light bleed' let alone have time in their busy lives to comment on such non-problems. Why? Because they're busy professionals who are super happy they have an awesome device to get sh!t done with, not analysing little slivers of light between their keys.

    Stop complaining just use it.

    From Classic
    It's crazy how people can spew toxic diarrhea and people will still "Like" their comments. Take your negativity else where and the followers might as well go get an iphone.

    I think the significant issue being overlooked here is some of the keys and bezels have chipped paint on them which accentuates the light bleeding, and some of the tool belt placements are way off on some devices. These are major manufacturing flaws that should be corrected.

    Now that you have used classic and z30, do toy think that moving from a z30 to a Classic you feel it lags and has essential power. I am planning to move to a Classic and currently have a z30.

    I switched from the Z30 to the Classic. I feel a little of power lag. Also battery life isn't close to what I got from the Z30.

    I also picked up my Verizon Classic last week. It is perfect---no light bleed whatsoever and the battery life has been excellent. Now if it would actually "discover" my Bluetooth devices. Frustrating.
