    This one is the weakest in terms of band support: LTE 1/2/3/4/5/7/8/13/17/20/28 TD-LTE 38/40

    US GSM version is a superset of this EU KEYone, containing every single band. Not sure why they even bothered releasing this one, when they can just release the US GSM version, which is truly global and support every network around the world except the snowflake CDMA ones. The only clue I found in the FCC docs was that only BBB100-3 was actually tested for 17 and 38, but not on US GSM even though it is supported.

    Nice find, thanks. Though Wondering if such certification docs do clarify on specific issues such as whether things like wireless Ad-hoc Mesh Networking protocols have not been tied down, now that BlackBerry got Government endorsement deals on emergency response communication during disaster off grid scenarios? Anyone knows...

    It is common practice for manufacturers to assign different model numbers to the same product for different markets, even if they are identical. This often has to do with the different import requirements for each market, such as language.

    But it isn't the same model. Based on but the bands are locked out.

    I would still expect it has to do with the requirements for different markets.

    Those aren't model numbers, jn0016, jn0017, and jn0018 are fcc certification designations. Denoting each ones frequency operation. Example would be the model of a car having 3 to 5 options packages, but in that case will cost more depending on the options

    Except N016,17,18 are -1,-3,-2 variants respectively.

    Models, Variants, Versions, Region, whatever you want to call it.

    TL;DR: EMEA gets the gimped version with least roaming support.

    I have no idea, but I'll hazard a guess that it's due to some EU regulation or something like that. It would make sense that this extra model only has to exist due to paper pushers.
