    For anyone who really wants a Red Key2 and already has a Key2... Just transfer the innards. Of you won't have the 128gb of storage but only you would know..

    If you buy both, it'll probably be around $140 or so lol.

    I'm actually considering getting just the Red keyboard and slapping it on a Black KEY2.

    It's gonna look very weird though, even with a black case.

    If I could get the keys from red onto the silver I would be all over it. I really like the white alt keys. But even a new silver would make my phone look new again. My keys are worn a lot.

    Have you checked on what the extortionists on eBay are asking for a Red Key2. $2000+

    It does appear that TCL is cleaning out their parts cabinet. Those keyboards are OEM.

    Extortionists? I thought everyone on this site loved to cite "supply and demand".

    That's because "supply and demand" is how prices work. If ten people all want one item, the price goes up, and if only one person wants and item, and their are ten for sale, then price declines.

    Right...so why are people upset that there are maybe 10 sealed USA Red K2s left in the world and they're going for >$1500?

    I have no earthly idea. I can't think of anything less surprising or consequential.

    Very cool find. Would love to see some thoughts on the process from anyone that takes the plunge.

    Nice part of it all is that you don't need to worry about the screen since it is already installed in the replacement frame. The only thing that I'd be super sensitive about is the removal of the blue and white antenna wire leads. But if successful you still have a spare frame and LCD.

    It would look so weird to have a red keyboard on a Silver or even Black KEY2, but a black case would mask most of it.

    Still might be worth it, kind of nervous about those two annoying blue and white wires.
