    As i live in the country where Key2 is not officially sold, i have to rely on local unauthorized sellers to avoid import taxes in case ordering online. As a result, i have no idea how long the phone has been on the shelf.

    Please kindly tell me how to identify the older and newer ones, e.g. from package or software version codes. Thanks

    Cool! I will probably get the phone this weekend. Is there any ways we can check from the phone in case the box is switched? Just a rough estimation will do. Thx a lot.

    Yes.

    Type *#2886# into the phone dialer.

    Select "manual" , then "traceability".

    This tip does not work in every country and with every provider. I can't read the IMEI number, the PRD number or the production date. I'm from Germany.

    As claimed by the seller, the phone is imported from Singapore. Strangely she couldn't find any assembly date on the box so she had to made do with the method.The price she set is around 560 USD. I'll probably go and see the real one this wkend, is there no way i can trace its age?

    Btw, has the rumor of Key 3 being annouced soon been just the rumor? Should i wait for it? The reason i'm considering buying Key 2 now is because i usually swap phone yearly and at the time Key 2 came out, i already got my new one.

    Um....Do I need to concern about Model code(BBF 100-)? The one I'm going to buy should be BBF 100-4 I'll check again this weekend. Which regions(4 represents the product sold in SG I guess) has the least defective product s? Or it doesn't matter. Thx

    It's normally beside "date code". No idea why and how yours has been redacted.

    Thailand and I guess I'm going to buy one imported from SG. Anything to be concerned? I accept the risk of no after sale service and no insurance, that's why I need to check it carefully.

    I think it actually depends on the country and the provider whether they allow the data to be queried.
