    Hi everyone.
    I am thinking of buying the Key2 outright as my contract is just about up. Amazon.ca has it pretty cheap right now at $599.99: https://www.amazon.ca/BlackBerry-Dual-SIM-BBF100-6-Unlocked-Smartphone/dp/B07H57Q93S/ref=sr_1_3?crid=2K3K7FCU1HRI0&keywords=blackberry+ key2&qid=1554989894&s=gateway&sprefix=blackberry%2 Caps%2C202&sr=8-3

    I'm new to the whole buying a phone outright as I have always been on contracts, but seeing this price is pretty tempting. The only concern I have its that its an " International version" and it does not have a warranty.

    What are your thoughts? Bestbuy also has it on sale right now but its not as cheap.

    You didn't list your carrier... does the International version have the bands your carrier uses?

    Personally I'm not a big fan of not having a warranty...

    For North America, you want a BBF100-2.

    The international versions are missing a number of bands for Telus and Bell.

    For North America, you want a BBF100-2 for single SIM, and a BBF100-5 for a dual SIM.

    Generally only the former is available in Canada.

    The international versions are missing a number of bands for Telus and Bell.
    Do you mean bbf100-6 ?
    Cause the bbf100-6 is dual sim. -5 doesnt show anything

    Forget everything I said. I was mixing up the KEY² and the KEY² LE.

    You ONLY want the BBF100-2.
