    Smile Pearl manufactured in Mexico vs Canada

    Advertisement



    I am presently getting ready to power up my SIXTH device. Yep. You read that right. #6. Admittedly, 3 of the 6 weren't really defective, TMO was simply unaware of the OS issues at the time. All of my previous Pearls have been manufactured in Canada. Except for this last one. It's made in Mexico. And has been a piece of crap from day one. It endlessly reboots, freezes up at will, deletes my emails willy-nilly, freezes up when I use the browser, gives me uncaught exception illegal argument etc java errors, the list is endless. Reloading the OS didn't make one whit of difference. TMO sent another device out, and it too is manufactured in Mexico. So my question is this------ Has anyone else with a Pearl made in Mexico experienced serious issues? Or am I just incredibly unlucky? This last Pearl was also already upgraded to the new OS. I love my Pearl, but am getting a wee bit tired of having to change pincodes and all that associated noise. Enquiring minds want to know if anyone else has had problems like this? When I power up the new Pearl, I'm going to start from scratch, not reload using my DM. I'm curious to see if it makes a difference.

    Edited to say-is there any way to tell if the replacement TMO sends is a refurbished model?

    Pearl isn't a country. Where was it manufactured?

    Mine is made in Mexico and lately I have had nothing but problems. Phone shuts off when I'm on it. I get a ton of java.lang errors. Tmo is sending me a new phone. Let's see if I have the same problems with the new one.

    that's the problems (or some of them anyway) that I've been having with this phone. The new replacement they sent is also made in Mexico. It better not be a Limon!

    I think whenever T-Mobile sends out a replacement phone it is in deed a refurbished one.

    I have had 5 pearls both made in Mexico and Canada so none have acted excellent for me. This one is from Canada? So far so good? We shall see.
