    My Bold finally took a turn for the worse. I called up my provider and got a refub as a warranty replacement.

    Here is where it gets a little interesting.

    My original Bold was Made in Canada

    The replacement was made in Mexico.

    The firmware is completely different.

    First, the Browser

    My original Bold had the address bar and below it was a Google search bar

    The refurb has the address bar only. Is there a way for me to bring back the search bar?

    The refurb is not that bad. It appears they do the repair and the give you an completely new outer shell. Other than a few annoyances, it might be a keeper.

    Sounds like you will need to update the operating system. That is just my opinion maybe other bold owners will have a better reply.

    If not the service books I would try re-registering and if none of that works as much of a pain as it may be re-installing the OS might fix it.

    This thread has me confused. Are the address bar and search bar showing up in the internet browser? I've never had either since I got my Bold. Maybe I'm just confused on what I think I should be seeing. Any clarification would be appreciated.
    Thanks!
