The problem is that it's only compatible with GSM networks, so you can't use it on CDMA carriers like Sprint, for example.
BlackBerry's latest handset might soon be available from Sprint.
In a statement, Sprint Chief Marketing Officer Roger Sole said, "We are pleased to bring BlackBerry back into our device portfolio and we believe the BlackBerry KEYone will be a hit with our customers".More news: Real Madrid capture Real Betis midfielder Ceballos
Starting tomorrow, customers on Sprint will find the KEYone from BlackBerry available for purchase online, with in-store availability beginning later this month. But that might change by the end of this week, as new information confirmed by a Sprint rep points to a July 14 release for the BlackBerry KEYone. If it does do that, Sprint will be the first major carrier in the United States to carry the BlackBerry KEYOne because no other carrier is doing that right now. A new KEYone will run you $528 flat out if you want to go that route, or you can take the easy $22/month payment plan over 18 months.
Shortly after the BlackBerry KEYOne was launched, it faced a screen popping issue. "It pairs perfectly with Unlimited Freedom, giving Sprint customers the convenience of unlimited data on an incredibly powerful and security-conscious smartphone". It's also running Android 7.1 Nougat out of the box and there's a full, physical keyboard below the display. Plus for a limited time, your fifth line is free!
