    After a very long hiatus, the prodigal son has returned. Last phone I had was the Torch and then went with the Note series. I still love my Note, but not feeling the other S series phone. I'm disappointed that American Telephone & Telegraph is not carrying the Key2, so looking to see how this KeyOne works out. I already had to get a replacement due to a dim illuminated keyboard, so Blackberry is not winning my loyalty right now.........

    I have my keyone black edition now for two weeks and absolutely happy with it. I bought it at a german retailer for 299€, it is a really good price for a decent device.
    No reception issues or poor speak quality here.

    I've had my KEYone almost a week. I bought it unlocked at Best Buy for $399. It's my fourth BB. I've had Pearl, Bold 9700, Passport, and now KEYone. I don't understand it enough to even know how much I like it yet. Keyboard is nice. I thought I'd need glasses to see it, but I am adjusting. I'm confused by the integration with Google. My pictures are all over the place. I need to figure out how to move pictures so I can organize them like I did in the Passport. I successfully transferred contacts, pictures, videos, lists, and documents from the Passport using "other method", not Google. Google was taking so long that the Passport couldn't keep up staying charged. Other method seemed to transfer straight to the KEYone. The only thing that did not transfer were my calendar entries. I tried three times, so I guess I will have to type it all in once I figure out how. I find it a hassle to learn how to use a new phone, and because of this I really miss the Passport. I am trying to embrace the "how fun... a new phone" attitude.
    If you would have used a Gmail account on your BB10 device then you could have synced all your contacts and calendar entries to it. When you signed into the new phone you would have only needed to sign into the Gmail account and voilà. It's not a pain if you know how

    Great to be Back In Black! After having not being able to get my hands on a Keyone until 3 days ago I am able to feel hints of BB on this device.
    It took being able fondle a clients Keyone that I decided to buy one for myself after hanging up the Passport for a iPhone 7 8 and X.

    The keyboard Password Keeper and ease of emails ( on a physical keyboard) were the deciding factors. I am able to use most work apps, sure I'll miss a few games like RR3 but glad I switched back.

    Still figuring everything out.

    Welcome to KEYone ownership! I think you will enjoy it. I have had mine for a year and a half.

    Any KEYone owners who transitioned from a Priv? I'm considering making the jump after 2 years and can't afford the Key2 at the moment. Right now, the most logical step for me (if I want to continue w/ BB is the KEYone). I love pkb's, and am not ready to give up on BlackBerry devices.

    Any advice or suggestions would be helpful. Is the KEYone a step up from the Priv???

    I have both and still use my Priv as backup. But my KEYone is much faster so I give my Priv a rest and let my KEYone do the heavy lifting. Apps that struggled on the Priv do fine on my KEYone (example, navigation apps. like Google maps and Waze) Have you considered the KEY2LE? It is cheaper than the KEY2. (It doesn't have the captivative keyboard of the KEY2 but has gotten pretty good reviews if you can do without it).

    Just got my Keyone, switching from my trusty Classic and so far only having problems getting my BBM to work. Like someone above said, not happy my pictures are randomly all over the phone but it will take some time to organize. Any help and or tips would be greatly accepted!

    Got my Black Edition QWERTY 2 weeks ago.
    (we have QWERTZ in Germany usually)

    Brand new from a big reseller on Ebay (229€).
    [https://www.ebay.de/itm/RIM-Blackber...AAOSw~rhcBoyL]


    I really like the Look and feel of the Black Edition.
    SD625 sure is not the fittest for heavy Users/Office but with the 4GB RAM working fine for me. Camera is kind of potatoe-like compared to my S9. Screen also not a great LCD but not that bad either. Batterylife is just Love now!

    One of the REALLY stupid software implementations is that i can not use Nova Launcher and the Shortcut Keyboard Keys....and the BB Launcher is just ridiculous compared to Nova etc.

    Also the -glossy- keyboard and many minor software stupidities are a little annoying.
    But overall im very happy cause I tried for 6 years now to get good at touch+type and i just cant do it. (Nokia QWERTY E-Series before that!)

    So now i can choose which Phone to carry around with Multi-SIMs.
    (same number on both phones)

    lag? crashes?
    I'm thinking of buying it for 300 euros.

    Thanks
    SD625 + 3GB RAM has its "limits". Try getting the 4GB RAM BE if you wanna be on "a safer side" -it was on Sale several times (in Europe) for much under 300€. (i.e. Ebay)
    I can easily make my BE "Lag" while my S9 would just be bored...(Yes ofc totally different SoC)

    I'll write more later. ordered phone from ATT Death Star in Irving Texas yesterday at noon. arrived in West Virginia at 9:30 am today.
    listening to my activated FM chip and exploring the possibilities. I've been on this for like four or five hours of screentime and battery is at 81 percent. unbelievable.
    I love this keyboard. when I saw pics I was afraid keyboard would be too small but I find it is actually easier to type on than my BlackBerry Classic was.

    This is muy first full day with Keyone. I've been on this thing all day. I drive several hours a day and have been listening to YouTube on autoplay all day. been on it at least three hours screen time since I got home. had several conversations. not a single electron of charging and my battery is at 35 percent. meanwhile I've had to keep charging my P.O.S. work issued iPhone.

    I liked the fact they included a Sim card removal tool in the box.

    It keeps blowing me away. I got this text from my son saying "I got a 94 on my math final "
    I went to type congratulations but ere my fingers touched the keyboard there was a list of texts ready to go "Yay!" "congratulations," etc. then my daughter texts "I got an A in math." again, there were perfect suggested responses to the question.
    I've also noticed whenever someone asks me something in a text, there are good suggested answers ready to go. The more I use it the more it gets in my head.

    Greetings from Italy.
    Got my second-hand KeyOne in October 2018, after a disappointing Huawei.

    I am very pleased with this device: more than 90 days of phone calls, web research, and a lot of smooth writing in different languages.

    It suits my needs perfectly.

    A happy BBB100-2 user.

    Just got a limited edition black variant. I had a silver KEYone and the a silver key2. I switched to a Oneplus 6t because it of my experience with the key2 keyboard was horrible. I'm back on KEYone I feel like I also loose functionality when I come back to bb but I'm all about the physical kb. It's nothing compared to the pp but imo it's better than the key2 sow if I could get my wifi talk/text on mint mobile to work that will be awesome.

    Just got my keyone silver edition!! I'm very excited to be back on a blackberry. unfortunately my Q10 went MIA, and with the unsettling future after December for bb10 I decided to get the keyone. And for little added flair I got a purple case to give it that style look! so far my experience with this phone is awesome!
