    Just got my BlackBerry Key2 2 weeks ago and I have yet to use it as I am patiently waiting for my case to arrive.

    Today I turned it on just to check for updates so that when I do want to use it, it's already up to date and I got offered a new system update with the size of 483.3 MB

    This is the international unlocked Black 128GB Key2 bought from AXIOM in Dubai

    OS Build now says ABC432 and the Android Security Patch is July 1

    I haven't used the phone before so I can't really comment but one thing that I did use and that DID improve is.

    You see, the fingerprint scanner was really flimsy, I had to press it hard for it to work and most of the time it wouldn't work even.

    Now after the update, it was still the same so I deleted my fingerprint and re-registered it and now it works every time! So happy about this as this was a major let down for me from my initial impressions of the device.

    Read somewhere (www.Gizmochina.com 07 13) that this new update fixes some of the software problems that day one KeyTWO users had noticed... it was first released only in China and now looks like it's making its way elsewhere.

    Nice to see TCL moving very quickly....

    Where do you read that type of info?

    I remember asking about the changelog and got just an answer "you must be new around here"

    Same model as yours , will update and report back. As for the fingerprint Sensor I had the same issue then I clean the sensor and re-registered then it was prefect .

    Thanks. Interesting indeed. Usually the security patch levels are on the 5th of the month.
    Another funny thing is that the kernel shows exact same versions except the ec_agent@br628cnc on the ABA044. Baseband shows an update too.

    look here, good sir... you won't be tricking me with logic and/or rational thinking, you are just trying to get me to miss the update. I must commence checking and rechecking over and over again or I will miss the update and my KEY2 will be forever ruined.

    Good to know. Thanks for the heads up!

    My only gripes so far are the fingerprint scanner not being as consistent as my KEYone so it's good to see they're addressing that.

    The other is I hope they make improvements to the camera with new software as well.

    Interesting, I have the same model as the OP but when I check for update it keeps searching. The solution was to put it in airplane mode then using wifi to check then it worked . I was using both sim card slots. we will never what is the reason .
