    Hey gang, Im picking up my first BB next week (the Storm) and have heard that it originates from two different countries. I have seen some posts about one being better than than the other(less buggy)....It will be a verizon account so Im hoping that you guys can give me a little input on this....



    Thanks

    OP is talking about the Canadian and Mexican built phones.

    I have a Mexican Dec 2008 build. Haven't had any issues yet.

    I heard about the same thing. The wife and I did the BYGO Free offer and Salesman brought out one of each. I heard the ones made in Mexico had less problems so he swapped the Canadian Storm with one made from Mexico. I hope neither of the Storms encounter any problems. Rumor, The ones made in Mexico where less likely to have the dust under screen issue.

    I've only owned ones from Mexico. First one kept rebooting so I sent it back and got another one from Mexico and it didn't reboot like it did before. Other then that, no issues from Mexico made Storms.
