    To be more explicit, Key2 has to be provisioned as if the LE since the LE is certified, no?
    I am honestly not sure. You would have to refer to the Key2 threads to see how people have set it up. I believe it's just a question of getting a new SIM similar to the LE.

    Yes - the Key2 now works on Verizon as well. Check out the Key2 threads for many people who have activated it... Pretty much same challenges/configuration of the Key2 LE, although since the Key2 isn't certified with VZW there is technically no guarantee it will work in the future...
    I wouldn't state something works if you personally haven't tried it. Just because a few people posted it works doesn't mean much.

    So you're saying that if MANY people post that the Key2 works on Verizon by following certain steps that we should all ignore them and assume that it doesn't work until we try it ourselves? With your logic I can't believe anything I read that has been validated by many people without trying it myself. That seems very logical...

    As I stated before, anyone considering trying it should look at all of the threads to see how others have gotten it working and follow their steps if they want to give it a try. I'm very comfortable posting that now with many people having gotten it working at this point.

    The Key2 LE was certified and functions on VZW properly. The Key2 is not certified. The people that have gotten Key2 functioning on VZW did so by inserting a provisioned LE SIM card. If you don’t have a LE on VZW, I’m not sure how you’d be able to switch out SIM cards.

    I never said that. If many people posted I wouldn't believe them either. It's not a matter of "belief". It either works or it doesn't. If a bunch of ppl post it works I'll take that into consideration if I choose to buy a Key2 for VZ.

    Logic?

    My main issue is I use textra and have backed up and then transfer to the new device having done that a few times switching the keyone for issues (screen etc), I want the key2 LE but not if I can properly transfer the existing text messages I have. Not sure when textra will be able to work?

    So basically if you want to have a KEY2 on Verizon, you need to buy an LE also ? Loll

    That is NOT correct. Take a look at the link in my previous post for the steps to go through to activate a Key2...

    Right now it depends on your luck of the draw getting a new SIM card. I was able to get the second shop I visited to give me a SIM, which I provisioned properly with technical support over the phone, without having a KEY2 in hand. Never asked for the IMEI. But the first shop I visited wouldn't talk to me without giving them an approved IMEI.
