    I still use my Priv but I'm considering changing phones this year. I use my virtual keyboard more than the actual keyboard but I do like and want to keep a phone with a physical keyboard. Will I have the option of using both on this new Key2 or just the virtual keyboard for numbers and symbols? This is a deal breaker for me.

    I believe the keytwo is able to do what you want. My keyone has onscreen vkb (letters, numbers, symbols).. You can access it by pressing the sym key.. Here's a screenshot..

    Can you still use the touch screen keyboard or just the actual keyboard that is always present?-screenshot_20180609-205653.jpg

    I think having both keyboards is awesome. The BlackBerry VKB is still best-in-class, IMO, and the balance on the KEYone and KEY2 For two handed use when typing with the VKB is fantastic. For long two-handed typing sessions on my KEYone I often use the VKB because it's position in the center of the device feels so solid and stress-free compared to typing at the bottom of any large device, where you have to use your hands to keep it from tipping forward.

    great question, and thanks for the replies. I've been considering making the switch from my Priv to the Key2 as well, but I like the VKB. When I'm typing longer messages, I always use the PKB but for quick replies or website urls, it's always virtual. Don't think we'll be getting a Priv2 any time soon, so this works
