Default blackberry 8900 - made in mexico 4?

Please Login to Remove!

hi all,

i just had a question for you. i bought an 8900 today from my local t-mobile store and absolutely love it.

on the side of the box it says that the phone was made in mexico with a 4 beside mexico.

all of the previous blackberry as well as my brothers 8900 has made in mexico 3 on the side of the box.

anyone else here have a made in mexico 4?

any difference, or just a more recent production batch?

let me know.

thanks!

Mine says Mexico 3.

BTW, your profile says model 9000 and not 8900.

Hi,

my box also says 'Made in Mexico 4'.
I am from Germany and got my BlackBerry from 02 (Telefonica Germany).
Can '3' and '4' stand for the plant where it was produced?

Welcome to BB Forums, Ruhrbürger!

Yes, mine is Mexico 4. I get +1 point over those with 3 only.

Not surprise. Nowhere days, most of the electronic products make in China, Mexico and Southern Asian countries.
