    I've only started reading some reviews of Blackberry Keyone.
    What go me thinking was a call from o2-my provider if iphone/ipad.
    Since maybe considering Keyone on a low plan with limited calls and data as an emergency mobile if my ios devices need charged etc.
    What a nice change the Blackberry looks and what an excuse to ditch my basic zte blade which I haven't particularly enjoyed and seems to take ages to re charge.
    Any thoughts on the Keyone-as I mentioned used as a backup device only-unless it's enough to shift me away from SE being primary mobile.

    Apologies I've since found a Keyone thread with loads of posts.
    Nice evening reading.
    Wish I could move my thread to Keyone thead

    I appreciate what BB have done and the move to android full time was the best thing to happen to them but their devices just aren't for me. Granted the build quality is good but I always thought it lacked a bit of grunt. Maybe that's why the battery life is amazing on these devices.

    Since read a few tariffs which means I'll not be purchasing k1 yet at least until 2019 when my se is fully paid.
    Even the lower 1gb tariffs are almost 30 u.k. pounds per month.
    I cannot justify this as a backup device yet with se and ipadpro contracts running until next year.
    Maybe I'll get a chance to re cycle se and offset the cost of paying off handset cost to open up the chance of k1 new contract.

    Yes could never justify that for a backup. Just throwing money away!

    131u,k, pounds to clear SE contract as recycle payment is dropping very fast was recently as much as 90 since 73 recycle payment if I want to clear contract and return SE
    I'm going to re consider over next few weeks as I aim to return to full time hours.
    Is SE2 due mid2018 or late2018-that's my only other consideration.
