    Has anyone with a dual sim key2 model BBF100-6 had any issues with their space bar? My device arrives tomorrow and I'm hoping the space bar is fine (unlike my previous BBF100-1 which I ended up selling because it bothered me so much)

    What do you mean by spacebar issue? The clickiness?
    If that's the problem, then yes it has it too.

    It never bothered me, even though that was the first thing I checked when I got mine, thanks to Crackberry.

    Guess you'll find out.

    Spacebar performance, except for a minor number of actual hardware faults, is mainly a preference thing.

    The click will feel different, that applies to all KEY2's (not LE's).

    However, if it's very firm in place with no looseness/rattling then I'd say you have a keeper

    my dual sim KEY2 has arrived, and.. the space bar is no where near as bad as last time! - in fact it doesn't click at all unless pressed! (my BBF100-1 space bar clicked when you touched/stroked it lol)

    Nice! So it's completely solid ? No wiggling/movement at all when touching it ?

    I just got my key2 few days back. Dual sim, though my space bar doesnt wobble that much, it does have this issue of being press with a slight touch... sometimes moving my big thumb from M to C would result to a space.

    Anyway, where did u find the build date?

    Either on the box of the phone, or on the sticker that covered the back when new, or by:

    You can find the assembly date for the unit in the MMI test / Traceability menu

    1. Dial *#2886#
    2. Press the MANU red button
    3. Touch the "Traceability" menu
    4. Hit PASS

    You should get something like this, where the bottom line is a date of assembly:

    20170529
    YYYYMMDD

    The click of the spacebar is quite different than all other keys.

    I have found though, that over the course of time (3+ months) it is no longer as apparent.

    I have a BBF100-6 dual sim and the keyboard with a space works very well. The keyboard has a different click but there is no way about any slack or other shortcomings where it was very loose on the previous K2. Assembly date 20180918 of my BBF100-6.

    The click noise might get softer after a bit of use but the key resistance will remain the same, it's just that the KEY2's spacebar needs more resistance before the break, as the rest of the keys are much different.
