    Hi, Can operate a Key2 without a google account or email? I still have a BB10 phone and use it for phone calls, texts and emails. I don't find the need to sign up to social sites. Does the Key2 only have google maps or can I get an alternative? Thank you.

    Can the phone operate? Sure, BUT you'll be missing some useful features such as Google Photos (which can be backed up to the cloud). I also believe Google Maps would not work. Also you would not be able to download apps from the Google Play store. Not an unsolvable problem, BUT what's the big deal about setting up a google account? You don't have to use your main email.

    Hi Team Leader, Thanks for your reply. The problem is I'm old, distrusting of new things, miserable and have no friends. Also I really don't like being tracked and having adverts thrust in my face. I don't find I need an app to find my back-side. I also don't wear clothing that advertises someone else's business. If I don't need these things I am very interested in the Key2. Thanks again.

    You can but as pkcable said, you will miss various features (which may or may not be important to you). See https://forums.crackberry.com/blackb...esome-1114355/

    There are other mapping apps (from F-Droid, for example) that may offer you enough but you will have to test them out to see for yourself.

    Judging by your vocabulary, you may even be older than me.

    Thank you so much for that laugh! And here I was thinking about installing the Charmin app! :ROTFL:
