    Is there any way to tell the manufacture date if you didnt get a box...I just got my third new one...this one came from a service center and is new but no box....when I got it out I noticed the battery cover issue...my last one didnt have this so I just switched out the covers and all is well there...

    I've noticed a bit of screen ripple ...but nothing too bad.,..I havent seen this on any of the ones before...so far the track ball is working great...so far...so Im just hoping I got a newer one...but I cant seem to find date anywhere...

    My sound is much better but still not as good as the curve...Any ideas...

    You can find the manufacturing date on the phone after removing the battery.

    The date will be written in this format: 150709. Which means July 15, 2009.

    Oh. That's what that means! I thought the fifteenth month was Februtober. My bad.

    Great info! Thanks!

    Unfortunately, I think the only place you can find the date is on the box itself.

    It should be on the box only. It would be pointless to stamp a build date on every unit. It's probably only stamped on the box so that RIM can track batches in the warehouse (to hold them back if something is wrong with them).

    The following site shows a label inside the phone but the date is quite before the Tour was released.
