  1. I am definitely looking forward to that with baited breath. I'm loving my Key2 (although I do miss the display of the Priv) so it will be interesting to see what they come up with. I would certainly buy a 5G capable Priv2 in a heartbeat.
  2. I requested my refund on the 24th May via email and had the money in my account on the 3rd June. It did take a few days to get a response though.
  3. To be fair I have disabled Hub and everything BlackBerry related - just using the native Google apps and standard messenger. I know it's not as streamlined as using Hub to collect everything in one place but I was finding it difficult to archive stuff properly in Hub so I just got rid of it. BBM went almost straight away. Just had the refund for the Pro1 though so now got to bite the bullet on something. If it is the Key2 then I shall do the same as I did with the Priv and just run Google native apps without Hub.
  4. Well I have been running a Priv since they first came out so not too worried about lack of software updates as long as the core phone works well to be honest. I am more than happy with the software on the Priv - just don't like the overheating and the fact it gets a big laggy at times. I don't allow untrusted sources and don't sideload anything or want to root the phone plus I'm happy with the BlackBerry launcher and keyboard so I'm not fussed about getting the latest OS. You've just highlighted one of my key misgivings. The community being able to pick up the slack - it shouldn't have
  5. It's not really the start up time after Corona that's put me off. Reading about all of the other little "niggles" (fingerprint reader location, taking so long to patch software issues that should never have made it out in to the field, pound sign not working - big one for me being in the UK!, the constant under-delivery of promises, the offset keyboard, people having to put bits of felt and the such like to quieten down the "clack" as theirs were missing from the factory) combined with everything else is what has made me pull the plug. It's a real shame as it seems like it's so close to bein
  6. Well I've just sent off my request for a refund. I've lost all trust and patience now in this product. Especially given how many issues that should have been sorted before the relase are still cropping up. I also think that the "goodwill" gesture of a cleaning product for a phone that I have been waiting 9 months for was not a particularly brilliant PR stunt. I've managed to get Google Maps working quickly on my Priv again by removing all the updates and since that was my biggest problem really then I'm happy enough. I might think about a Pro2 IF they manage to learn
  7. The pre-order website originally stated "All pre-orders will receive a free pair of Limited Edition F(x)tec earphones & F(x)tec Pro1 case" - no mention of cut-off date at all. I definitely pre-ordered (in August 2019) so I will be expecting these. It was one of the reasons I pre-ordered rather than waiting for the full order. Even on the forum one of the founders stated that all pre-orders would get them Once again - communication not proving to be a strong point! But we will see what happens.
  8. Now that is tempting! Screen resolution is on par with the Passport but still not as good as the Priv which is a bit of a shame since the Passport is getting on for 6 years old. I always found the Passport to have the best keyboard hardware of any phone I had ever had. Plus I loved that it was just a bit different.
  9. That is a shame. I was always holding out for them to upgrade the Priv with newer CPU, a bit more RAM, and a newer version of Android - that would have been my perfect phone. I do love my Priv - it's just getting rather slow these days!
  10. Yeah - I get that. But given I'm going to have to give up 1-handed keyboard typing going back to the landscape slider (portrait is so good on the Priv for that) it's not the end of the world for me. I would genuinely love a new Priv - just with latest Android OS & Snapdragon chip (maybe a bit more memory) - but it was searching for news about whether there would be a Key3 that I came across this phone. Will definitely be interesting going back to a landscape slider again since it's been about 8 / 10 years since I've had one. I have to say that I am also seriously considering going
  11. Pre-order - 29th August Full order - 8th September Order Number - 339XX IGG - No Country - UK No stock assigned email which, looking at order dates from other countries that do have assignemnt, is hardly surprising. I was holding out a tiny sliver of hope that a pre-order from almost 5 months ago wouldn't fall in to the "recent" pre-order category that wouldn't make shipment. On that logic, a ~7 month old pre-order from the end of July is "ancient" and a ~5 month old one is recent 🙂 I was certainly hoping that I would be included as my Priv is beco
  12. I can't remember all of my early phones, but I definitely had an HTC Touch Pro 2 a long time ago. More recently, Passport and then 2x Priv. Kept thinking about replacing it with a Key 2 but didn't want the downgrade in screen size & resolution from the Priv!
  13. I have only just seen this and, combined with everything else, pretty much has me (metaphorically) hovering on the cancel button. I pre-ordered for 2 main reasons - the worry of a price increase and the promise of a case / headphones to ALL pre-order users. There was also the promise that the money wouldn't be taken until a couple of weeks before the order was shipped. As far as I can work out, NONE of those are true. The price (in the UK at least) is still the same, the case now appears to not be included (and I even asked this question specifically in the forum before placing my orde
  14. Just seen that the homepage has changed to say that shipping will be early October. I really hope that's for new orders and not for existing orders!
  15. Not going to screenshot, as I'm typing this on my computer, but first ever attempt with three mistakes (one quite large as I kept typing for a while!) was 49wpm on a Priv with a 98.5% accuracy. With a bit of thinking over 50 would be easy.
