    Good Evening,

    I have been looking for a Dual Sim phone for the few times a year I travel. I want to continue with Balckberry.

    Found one that is being sold from Dubai (hopefully not an Optimeus model)

    Few questions:

    1) I would still like to use my Key one and switch between that and the new Key2 as my daily driver.

    2)My understanding is that only the 100-6 has Dual SIM?

    3)Would I be able to use it here in Canada with 2 SIM's as well as overseas when traveling?

    4) Can one set up an easy switch between the 2 phones when here in Canada (without having to always download emails / whats app etc?

    5) How do I know it is not an Optemius model?
    Thanks in advance!

    You can use it in Canada, yes. You can swap the SIMs back and forth too.

    Look at the box or type *#837837# into the phone dialer. PRD-63828-031 is the Indian variant.

    I'm using the HK variant here in Canada on Telus for both SIMs. However, I'm likely switching one of the SIMs to Rogers soon.

    As the previous user mention, do not buy the Indian variant. It's not made by TCL, and the monthly updates are non-existent.

    No issues with travelling to other countries. I travelled to Cuba and used the local telecom provider to make calls and emails. All good.
