    I recently had a blackberry storm made In mexico. It was slow and the screen push sucked. The mexican storm messed up so I traded it in for a canadian storm,I noticed a difference soon as it turned on! It is fairly faster while changing from SureType keyboard to qwerty. It has less hourglass and it has a better screen also brighter. What do you guys think? Ps : sorry for grammar errors I typed this on my storm.

    I have only had one Storm and the info is in my sig. I havent had any of the problems that I see here, except I had 2 unexpected reboots in the first couple of days and then none since, and that is about a month ago.

    sorry to burst your Canadian bubble. But....my Canadian Pearl sucked A**, while my Mexican replacement was perfect. My 9530 is Mexico born, and I'm one of the few Storm owners who hasn't had many complaints.

    I doubt there is any difference between them. I had a Canadian one first and now a Mexican built one. The Mexican built is actually built better in my case.

    I have a Canadian Storm that works well although I've heard Mexican ones are typically higher quality. All hearsay of course.

    I have a Canadian one made in 12/08. Mine has not had any issues as of yet. I am crossing my fingers.

    These threads are pointless really. It varies by each device I suppose.

    You can look on the box your Storm came in as well and look for this at the bottom.

    The number above the location is the day-month-year format for build date.

    Mine was made in Mexico, absolutely no problems. My wife's on the other hand, also made in Mexico and has screen click issues. I think it is hit or miss either way.

    This is my second storm first was canadian it sucked screen click was messed up and the thing randomly restarted A LOT. This one made in mexico jan 22 smooth clicks great, no problems at all. So I think it is luck not where it was made.
