    I have been following the possibility of VZW carrying the Key2 + Key2 Le for some time, as I have held off buying either with the hope that they would finally carry at least 1 of these devices. As some of you know, at MWC there was mention that VZW would start carrying the Key2 LE via Verizon corporate sales only (not consumer) soon.

    Well, I called Verizon Business Telesales today and I got a rep who did a little research for me. Here's what he told me:

    - VZW will carry BOTH the Key2 and the Key2 LE
    - Both phones will be available for pre-order on June 29 and will be released on July 13 (he found this on an internal document and he said there was no pricing and no other info)
    - ONLY the Key2 LE is currently whitelisted and therefore that's the only phone that continues to be BYOD eligible

    With this news I am going to go ahead and buy the LE from Amazon and activate it as a BYOD device. I can't wait until July for this...

    I hope this is helpful (and accurate)! Definitely good to know assuming it is accurate...

    Their adding the KEY2 is news... that will be good for VZW users! Do wonder about the whole - corporate sales only thing... the past there wasn't really a corporate sales only, just not "offered" to consumers expect for they cold buy them online. Hopefully that will be the same.

    That is awful late.... almost a year after the KEY2 was launched, so 1/3 through it's support life cycle. Not really great for Enterprise that tends to keep devices longer... Wonder if PIE has anything to do with it. I can see VZW not wanting to deal with a feature update issues, and requiring BBMo to update the KEY2 and KEY2 LE before they offer it. Might give us an idea of when PIE is showing up????

    I will pass the information on to some of my friends on Verizon and hopefully they come though on the deal.

    this means good news for the key2. it probably had a decent run to the point where it's still being talked about for almost a year plus the Red Edition wit the storage being doubled.

    but I'm on ATT related service

    I am a long time Verizon and BB user. I Switched from my Classic to a LE back in January. My LE drew the attention of several people at the Verizon store when I was picking up my SIM. I have had no issues and hopefully I convinced a few people to make the switch to BB.
