    i wish i had a solid answer for you, but do you have similar problems? such as the sticky buttons, problems with inconsistent click and the uneven screen? If not i wouldnt even worry about it, i say if its not something thats been bothering you, it doesnt need to be fixed..

    The hardware on the 9550 and 9520 is the same, so I would think that the potential for issue is there.

    That said, while RIM did change their manufacturing process for the Storm 2, there was never a Verizon recall.

    It simply comes down to whether you have issues with your screen. If yes, try taking it back. If no, then you are not missing anything by not having the "updated" version.

    I'm on an original Verizon S2 with no problems, so there is no benefit to my trying to get an "updated" one.

    I have a 9550 and I did notice that the screen wouldn't click sometimes. I ask because I bought a brand new 9520 from Vodaphone but I can't tell if it has the update or not.

    Storm2 9520 hardware was never revised. Only Storm2 9550 hardware exists with the silicone actuators. Quality control for Storm2 9520 is higher for it is intended for the European market, where the EU enforces strict rules. These may not apply to the States, which can be the primary reason for many 'malfunctioning' units to land in the hands of customers. In other words as has been said before, the potential problem is there, because the hardware for both is identical (except for the revised Storm2 9550 hardware). However, there is a higher probability that a Storm2 9520 will not have any of the infamous screen issues like the Storm2 9550.

    Ok, thanks for the info. I hope the 9520 is compatible with our name display service, which the 9550 isn't.
