    Contacted blackberry to see where I could purchase another key2 and here is their answer. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...c10111d8d0.jpg
    I guess they only made a few dozen so Hudson Bay would not overflow when overstock dumped...

    Strange reply. I thought BB licensing agreement gave the option to use BB’s trademarked reply “soon” in this scenario...

    Are you grommet Oklahoma?

    Sooners were often deputy marshals, land surveyors, railroad employees, and others who were able to legally enter the territory early. Sooners who crossed into the territory illegally at night were originally called "moonshiners" because they had entered "by the light of the moon."

    The only means of mitigating strangeness in a reply is to follow up with a stranger reply...

    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:

    20180729
    YYYYMMDD

    5. Hit PASS again
    6. Scroll to the bottom and hit Exit

    It’s been the SOS from the minute the Key2 LE was certified on VZW for customers. Devices were just sitting there for purchase. Most here just waited complaining about the price. Now it’s because others paid the price.

    If more Key2 become available, will people stop complaining or go back to complaining about the price?
    I wouldn't mind paying the asking price at the time of the Key2 LE's Launch, but now the phone is, at best, worth $450. This, coupled with what someone else is saying about how TCL is about to back out of this agreement because Blackberry is under the impression they are still hot **** in 2019 makes me wary of buying that and a Key3, should it come out at all.

    It appears sold out and where still available commanding full price. That’s how a niche device is supposed to be. Like many high priced automobiles that aren’t top specs but due to scarcity, the price holds.

    BBMo/TCL wasn’t attempting to be Kia so it’s okay..

    It really depends on whether you want the device. I am just glad I was able to get a KEY2. (Got it used). I wish I had gotten it sooner. It is so much better to type on than the KEYone.
    I don't know how the KEY2 LE compares but having a dual SIM would have been a nice feature.

    It's a little too scarce for me. Some eBay sellers have it new for $500+ US. But Amazon new is some seller who wants $900+ US. That's ridiculous. I saw one silver model new on a retail website for $535.
