Default Where was your Curve Born?

Please Login to Remove!

Ok so Greg asked for it in another thread so I thought I would start it off here. Lets see if one location is better than the other for having issues with the curve.

You can find where it was made by removing the bettery and looking at the sticker underneath.

Also, I have allowed for multiple selections for those OCD users that have now found themselves on Curve number 10 by now.......*cough* (sean76)

Viva Canada!

I don't think I've ever had a device made in Canada before. LOL

Hi!

So, you left out us European users at all... ;) :D

Mine was made in Hungary - no problems at all at the moment.

Greetings from Germany

Both great, no creaks, movement or issues.

Haha, this is great... first time I've ever had a Canadian device as well =)

So far so good... My favorite blackberry yet. (Now they just need to release the darn slip case, they keep delaying it just like the pearl one.)
