Like to see who Bought BESTBUY phones with Late Builds??
 
I bought my phone from bestbuy for 299 about 1.5 weeks ago (Jan 30th to be exact). It seems like all the phones are early build models. It took me 1.5 weeks and 2 exchanges to get a Dec 19 build phone. Sort of sad. I am in southern california. Anyone from california with a january build phone and where did you get it from?? Thanks. I will drive if i have to to get a later build phone, due to the issues i have gone through with the first two phones.

1. crooked keyboard with similar gap as the one i have now 1.0-1.5mm gap at the long edges (0.5-0.75 at the sort edges), heat issue around the battery cover (creaking), sound seemed low at times, and .?? firmware (didn't know how to check it until recently).(Late Nov Build due to the MEID DECIMAL (849XXXX) number comparison).

2. keyboard has lil gap about 0.5 all around and was nice, people complained i have a crackling noise and echo when i spoke (speaker was low as well, poor audio earpiece (could not hear well), kept getting an error message when i started the phone about express activation, TF3d was slow as a snail, battery cover creaks, and .3 firmware. (Nov 16 build (846XXXX)).

3. (CURRENT) keyboard has gap as mentioned earlier which is about 1.0-1.5mm gap at the long edges (0.5-0.75 at the sort edges), heat issue only at the camera strip portion, screen hits keyboard when i push the buttons on the pad, but everything else seems fine (battery creak is there), and .4 firmware. (Dec 19 build (852XXXX)).

Can anyone help me with my search. I have called plenty of stores in the california area, well at least those that picked up. From Dublin to Chino Hills store. So north to south.

I am trying to do my due diligience to find a phone that is "perfect". HTC said the gap is normal but who knows. They also told me not to flash my ROM after telling them that I read something about a mighty mouse... (She laughed)...

anyways.. any help.. thanks.

PS all my exchanges were from BEST BUY!!...

i dont but i can get it since i believe i have 30 days. i called already when i was on my second one but they told me they couldn't help me since the phone was from BB and i had to go exchange it. I even emailed ecare and no help. They refused to send me one even though i emailed them my situation and i called to complain. I even told them i would pay for the damn shipping but no go.

do you have a BB phone?

lucky you.. man i had to go through loops just to get a BB dec build.. hahah..

seriously.. i will TREAT anyone to a MEAL at IN & OUT..no joke, if you can find me a BESTBUY with a a january build phone in california. So Cal preferably.

I will go as far as drive to San Diego to pick it up. I know for a fact Dublin and Pinole do not have january builds. I called and compared the MEID numbers. Called them twice to make sure, and spoke with a different person each time.

The trouble i go through for a phone i think i have madly fallen in love with, minus the problems...

12/25... man u r lucky....

Do you have similar problems as mine??

Or what about the 12/21... any problems similar to mine...

So still no January builds eh???

I am sure BB has so much of the old stuff in stock.. sprint won't give them the new ones...

So none in California???

just **** it and go on EBay. Seems like the sellers are stealing them or something so they should be fresh.

hahah....Here is something that i have experienced with a bought stolen phone.

Once you activate it before it is reported , there is nothing they can do to the phone.

Jesus you people are anal as hell.
The differences between the builds is so minuscule it's not worth driving 3 minutes for much less an hour.

I am not going to lie to you, I am pretty picky with everything. Hell when I do calculations, I carry my numbers out 4 decimal places (0.0000).

I just want a quality built phone for the amount I paid. "You get what you pay for" as the phrase goes, yet for 300 (299.99 to be exact) plus taxes, you would expect a quality phone.

But then again what do I know, I dont eat food with my hands.:thumbleft:

Ladies and Gentlemen, I drove 1.5 hours and have finally got a BB 1/9/09 manufacturer date build phone with .4 firmware. I have to say that the phone right now in my hands appears somewhat flawless and well built.

For those looking, here is the MSID DEC 857XXXX. The store i went to had 3 left with that MSID number just to let you guys know so i can help a fellow TPers.

My Initial Use:

No creaky keyboard, no gap along 3 sides except for one on the right hand corner where there appears to be an object when you look between the keyboard and screen. lower right half of the phone. The stylus does not fall out since it seems to be in there pretty well and sticks pretty well or magnetically pretty well. The screen and keyboard is even and not crooked. Very little to no wobbling in the screen when I push the volume button. Seems responsive and very little heat issue since I have been online but will play with it more later. Call qaulity on both ends seem great. If you are a girl and want to call me to hear the call quality feel free and PM me :thumbleft:

One thing that is not a problem but is not of the best quality which the nitpicker like me may notice is the chrome, which has little pits or drips. I AM OKAY WITH THIS. Another thing is that the Home key seems a little stiff compared to the back key which again I AM OKAY WITH. Other than that no complaints. I will need to play with the OS and software to make sure this phone is a keeper. Or I can go back to the store and have 3 more chances.. hahah jk I think this is it.

Other than that these were my initial impressions and honestly I am content at this point. I have no reason to return this phone and will keep it since this is how it should have been made.

This is one solid phone and this is no lie. So with the number of stores I called and the stress I have gone through and the amount I paid, I think I can honestly say I deserve this phone.

Thank me if you find my story touching!!!

Thanks again.
