    As conite said it's NOT fully compatible! Band 30 is their congestion relief band and I know for a FACT that't the primary band used in my moms neighborhood (Lombard, IL) so without that band supported it's *NOT* going to be perfect... It's odd though cuz Phonescoop shows support for band 29/30 and 66??: https://www.phonescoop.com/phones/phone.php?p=5804

    Weird cuz the BB site here shows that they do NOT support those bands: https://blackberrymobile.com/specifications/keytwo/

    Me thinks phonescoop is wrong!
    Check ARDA to see if the LTE bands are selectable:

    phone dialer: *#*#7862732#*#*
    Go to Antenna & RF -> LTE Band Selection and look to see if 29/30 and 66 are available to check

    What's even weirder is that according to BB the Key2 LE BBE100-5 supports band 66 but I don't see it in ARDA... https://blackberrymobile.com/specifications/key2-le/

    Thanks!

    EDIT TYPO!!! 66, not 99

    yep, also been noticing that 66 does not seem to show up anywhere in ARDA, but is listed as supported on BBMobile's site in the specs (for all versions of the phone). Not sure if it really is not included, being misrepresented by BBMobile, or if ARDA just is not showing it.

    On the -6 I have both 29 and 30 checked by default. I don't see 66 though.

    On my -6 both 29 and 30 are UNchecked by default which makes sense since those bands are not supposed to be available on the -6.

    What happens if you toggle on bands 29 & 30? Will those bands then work?

    Band 29 (Telus) was being utilized frequently around my home (Edmonton area) by my North American KeyOne. I knowingly took a bit of hit on download speed by getting the -6 Key2. I would test it now but I'm away on vacation for several more weeks.

    Wonder if anyone has tried toggling on bands 29 & 30 and can confirm if those two will work or don't work.

    If you check those bands they should turn on, you can of course test this by turning off all other bands and keep only 29 & 30 turned on. Then see if you get a signal. I know you stated you are on vacation right now, but in theory those bands should be able to be turned on if they show up and are just unselected.

    Bands 29 and 30 aren't utilized here so I can't test it. I'll check into it mid-March when I get home.
