    My understanding is that the security updates will still come through the carrier even after it is unlocked.
    That's too bad, I guess I'm still waiting then

    Nice!

    I always have good luck with Metrotown too!

    Even the Bell store there sells outright

    and for anyone else, if they refuse,
    you can buy it full price with the absolute cheapest plan/paygo they have and cancel it after a few days

    also try craigslist, there's always good deals on Craigslist too
    An update: I just bought my second KEYone from a Rogers store in Metrotown (here in the Greater Vancouver Area). Told them it's a gift for a Rogers customer.

    When asked what their number was, said I didn't have it on me and then told them to "log" the sale under my phone number.

    Lots of good deals on Craigslist, especially since you don't know what's happened to the device before you buy it from a stranger you'll never see again.

    I thought the security updates come through Google. I bought my KEYone from Bell Canada on May 31st (off contract for $699 with a one month $25 plan which will be cancelled this week). When I bought the phone the security date was March 7, 2017, and my phone was updated last evening and I had my Virgin Mobile Sim in it. The security date now says June 5, 2017.

    I went into Rogers, bought a month to month sim card and put $10 of credit on it. This cost $10.
    Then I bought the phone using that number.
    And then I paid $23 for an unlock code. So all told it was $33 more. Not that costly to get it ASAP

    Same thing happened to me, except that I am with Rogers already. I just wanted to buy the phone and no modifications to my existing plan. WTF?
    What ! I find that hard to believe, did you ask them to upgrade your existing phone contract to the néw bb or you ask to buy it outright. I find it very hard to believe rogers would not sell a phone outright, could just possibly mean you are not eligible for a upgrade.

    Purchase without contact. They wouldn't do it. Not the first time with Rogers with me, happened with many of their launches on day 1. All started with me on the Bold. Being a fan of, I always bought on day 1. Anyways, ended up going to two more stores and finally someone sold me one. Not sure what the issue was since BlackBerry is trying to boost phone sales and should honor anyone that wants one. I think it's more Rogers doing as I've always had past Rogers Blackberry's one day 1, all depends on how many stores I have to try.

    Does anyone know if the Telus version will work with Koodo?

    Posted via CB10
    It should, Koodo branched or owned by Telus.

    Yes you can unlock right away, but carriers won't do it until you had the phone for a certain period.

    Now I thought that if a phone is bought outright, they legally have to unlock it right away.... but i am not sure
    No they don't legally have to do nothing, what they have to do is give you the option of unlocking it, for a fee of course they don't do it for free.

    Telus is now making the KEYone available to consumers as well.

    Prepaid Sim in new keyone, no contract?

    Then, remove the Sim and flick it towards the employee after purchase.

    Yes I know Bell pushed it but carriers are synonymous with being late compared to direct from blackberry devices

    I wonder if you can hold out until those protective case(s) arrive before opening the BlackBerry KEYone box and fondling your precious baby. LOL

    I called Rogers on the evening of May 31st. They sold me a KEYone off tab with NO change to my plan. I have one of those "grandfather" plans I WON'T mess with. I have been off contract for a couple of years now.
    AND they gave me $120.00 credit!!.
    I received my phone on Friday June 2nd! BTW-I love it!

    Edit: They billed my credit card the $679.00 and applied a $120.00 credit to my bill. I've already received the email confirmations.

    Looks like I'll be searching for a Telus corporate store to buy outright. Then I can pop my Koodo SIM straight in and I'm on the road- I need to keep whatsapp up and running past June.

    Shame I cant see a way of cutting down from 3 though. New corporate plan doesn't have blackberry and doesn't do BYOD.
