    I think he's referring to the European version.

    No the phones will be missing two bands one for Verizon and one for AT&T

    The BBB100-1, which is the North American GSM version has all the band's that AT&T uses. As long as it has 2,4,5, and 12/17, you're good to go.

    According to both carriers one band each is missing.

    WHOA! You mean the K1 to be sold for USA starting tomorrow does NOT have ATT's bands? Please clarify. That might change things completely for me since I am an ATT customer.
    One band each from each carrier is missing.

    The official, Official announcement for U.S. out now. Everyone happy now?
    No, because it still doesn't give a time. Is it 12am, 1am, 2am, 3am, 4am, 5am, 6am, 7am, 8am, 9am, 10am, 11am, 12pm, 1pm, 2pm, 3pm, 4pm, 5pm, 6pm, 7pm, 8pm, 9pm, 11pm, 11:59pm, or any of the other half hours. Are we supposed to stay up for 24hrs if it doesn't release at midnight?

    The phone will work in the US, the issues will arise when you are in an AT&T only area. The phone is missing the bands exclusive to them, the same issues for Verizon.
    .
    The version sold in the US has all of the bands At&t uses, you have bad information.

    Will the KEYone be sold at Bestbuy retail locations on May 31st? If it is is only to be offered online at bestbuy.com or amazon during this rollout post-May 31st, SHAME on BB.

    sucks they went through retailers instead of carriers. I'm not shelling out $550 immediately. I know I am not in the majority, but I have a feeling the KEYone will be Sprint only as far as carrier availability

    Well the U.S. actually just became the front runners imo because there's still no official word on an unlocked unit in Canada.

    I did check, and the BBB100-1 has every band that AT&T uses. And many more.

    2,4,5 and 17 are all you require for AT&T. It's what my Z10 has and it's an AT&T branded phone.

    Band 12 is interoperable with band 17, so even if your phone doesn't specifically have band 12, it will pick up band 12 through band 17. And the BBB100-1 has both 12 and 17.

    You still didn't say which band you think is missing.

    Obviously it matters to potential customers like those of us here. It's called customer care and respect. What's the point of the pre register then? Please explain?

    A posted email from another user is NOT officially released information. It's meant to be one on one communications between sender and receiver. How anyone can argue that is beyond me. We pretty much asked for the same email when we pre registered.
    Did you get the email saying that it'll be available on May 31st?

    How is it not official when the source is official?

    How is it that /leaks/ of the Mercury count as official for the KEYone timeline? Complainers have been using leaks as their basis for complaining the KEYone took "forever" to come to market.

    Did you think they had a choice? What in BlackBerry history has told you that the carriers are still in favor of carrying BlackBerry's?

    The U.S. gets unlocked because lack of carrier support. If you're in the U.S. and want to buy through the carriers, you can't. You win some, you lose some.

    Yes and that's exactly why I said in my opinion because if it were me I'd be buying unlocked no questions asked.

    So what exactly do you want them to do if the carriers don't want to sell it in their stores? Hold off the launch until some agreements are made?

    release it online with carriers, at least let potential customers use some carrier specific/account features to procure the product. You can still ship from a TCL warehouse and all carriers have to do is logistically manage the transaction

    Do such agreements exist? Or is this something you think can happen? This could open up the market for many phones. Of course, if something goes wrong, would customers understand that it's the manufacturer they have to deal with and not the carrier?
