    Someone please point me in the right direction if this is already a thread but does anyone know when/if we will be able to buy an unlocked KeyOne in Canada? So far everything is tied to a carrier.

    I bought one from Clove UK and had it delivered to me in Alberta. I had it in 3 business days. Check them out if you're looking for an unlocked KEYone.

    For what it's worth I was told by a local distributor in the GTA (gentek) that they are expecting to receive 25 units by June 15th but have already pre-sold 18 devices. These are supposedly unlocked devices.

    We seem to be in a Canadian carrier exclusive sales period. CrackBerry has said they will be selling the KEYone unlocked. It should also show up on Amazon.ca eventually and maybe even at Staples.

    I just bought mine yesterday outright from Bell, unlocked it and it's working flawlessly on Koodo. That's another option if you don't want to wait any longer like myself

    Are you a Bell customer? Will they sell it to anyone walking in? I'm on Virgin so wouldn't even need to unlock it.

    Not supposedly. Absolutely factory unlocked.

    I pre-ordered from the Crackberry store but there's actually no mention on when it will be shipped.

    So the real question is: Will Shop CrackBerry be among the first non-carrier to actually receive the product? I don't care who I purchase it from, but I don't want to waste my time with a CrackBerry if say they get only 20 and don't ship until say August whereas Amazon gets 100 and I could have it in a few days. This is a very frustrating release.

    I'm not a Bell customer, they sold it outright to me for the $699 CAD

    Good to know.

    With the issues being talked about here, I'll probably wait and get it from amazon.ca where returns are hassle free.

    Gave up waiting for unlocked in Canada, talked to Telus loyalty and it's on its way. I hope to get regular updates like an unlocked one.

    How did you manage that feat? I've talked to Telus a couple times already, and each time the agents insisted the KEYone is not available! It's so frustrating depending on who the roulette wheel lands on when you contact these clowns.

    I'm not sure, but it was a bit of an ordeal. I contacted them last night, was put on hold a few times so the rep could check if it was available for consumers, then given options to keep my existing contract or renew (I chose to renew, but may change the details of my new plan.) It sounded to me like they were easily available to consumers now, but the biggest challenge I found was getting my name on the account to approve changes. The original account is in my wife's name, but I do all of the payments/changes/etc. Whenever I've gone in-store to make changes it's been ok, but this time they had to contact my wife to add me to the account administrators.

    My advice would be to call *611 rather than going in to a rep shop - unfortunately lately they've seemed to be a bit clueless. I will say that my local Telus shop has been exceptional in the past, but they are sometimes the last to know about changes to plans/devices/availability.

    Thanks for the info. I have dealt with some people there that are good, but lately it's a real hit and miss. When you deal with one of those folks who are sort of lost, or you get passed to the offshore call center, it's most unpleasant.
