    Has anyone said this to you when they looked at your KeyOne?

    Or....I didn't know they still made phones.

    Love it, love the KeyOne (For the most part!)

    They don't make phones.... they licenses their name and IP out to others.

    Same over here in Ireland. In fact I went into a o2 phone shop to try and get a look at the keyone and was told " no we don't do blackberry".

    What I like to do, while at the cashier somewhere, is to ask if they have "BlackBerry Pay" on their registers. I usually get a confused look followed by a "no" or "definitely not." Then I hold my phone up and the payment goes through.

    Turns a few heads, even if BlackBerry Pay isn't a real thing.

    So I'm guessing Android Pay works on the KEYone?

    Good to know! Might set it up one day

    With mine going all the way back to my Z30, Passport, DTEK60 and now KEYᵒⁿᵉ... my TD Visa always had "tap and pay".

    My other banks RBC, Vancity and ScotiaBank also allow their debit and credit cards to utilize tap and pay as far back when UGO app allowed TD Visa cards on their BB10 app.

    I prefer using the Banks direct from nfc device payment instead of Android/Google knowing all of my banking and credit card info. All they have is one CCard to pay for apps etc...no need for them to know all my financial institutions that I deal with.

    NO THANKS.

    This is what I hear; whether it was my Classic or now my Keyone; "is that a BlackBerry!???... wow! I so miss the keyboard...what a nice phone.. etc... " my question to them "why are you staying with your iPhone?" ... then I get a blank stare as if I raised some rebel idea against the Empire....

    Yeah, friends do that when they see my priv (and the passport before that) and they say how much they miss the keyboard and say they'll get a BlackBerry when their upgrade comes. And then they rock up with the latest iPhone or Samsung next time you see them.

    I wonder if the passport and classic were re-released running Android if people would actually go and replace their iphones and galaxys with one?
    Im dreaming on both counts right?

    Does they replaced their iPhone and Galaxy with the KEYone ? Then you have your answer.

    I did, sold my S7 exynos for the KEYOne...and not looking back. Slabs are boring, I feel like I redpilled lol.

    Side note: the gaming performance on the KEYone (Adreno 506) is actually imo not that far behind the S7 exynos (Mali T880) for what it's worth. It can run GTA San Andreas (heaviest game at 2.4 gb stock) plus about 1 gb of modded textures (GTA V style) with very decent fps in low/med settings

    Most the people I know, never owned a smartphone till after all touch devices became the standard in 2008/2009?

    Think some here forget that even when BlackBerry was KING... that was only 80 million users. Today there are 2 Billion smartphone users, vast majority of them never used a BlackBerry or any other "keyboard" smartphone...

    This^^ and if they don't say they didn't know they were still being made, but look knowingly at your phone and smile, you know that they are most likely "one of us." Then I say, "so you know about this phone?" They probably do. I have met 2 such people since I got my KEYᵒⁿᵉ. Had it two months. The rest say something like, "I didn't know they still existed." Or "I thought they went out of business." Or "I didn't know they were still making them." (OK, for the detail people, yes, I at that I point may say something about BlackBerry licensing with a company to make them.) Many of them say they miss the keyboard.

    Giant zit on the nose is a head turner too....

    Lack of marketing and carrier support is a result, not the cause.
