BlackBerry KEYone coming to Sprint tomorrow

14 July 2017

The BlackBerry KeyOne - the company's latest attempt to return to the good old days of hardware keyboards - has been available to purchase in the U.S. since May 31st unlocked for $549.

The Sprint Community Forums played host to the main question of whether the CDMA-unlocked KEYone would be welcome on the Now Network anytime soon. It also makes Sprint the first US carrier to offer the latest BlackBerry-branded handset.

If you're looking to pick up a KEYone from Sprint, you can do so online from the BlackBerry KEYone page. And as the great Henry Ford said, "You can have any color as long as it's black". The handset will hit retail stores by July 28.

Shortly after the BlackBerry KEYOne was launched, it faced a screen popping issue.

The KEYone will launch on Sprint on Friday, July 14, through Sprint's online store and Sprint telesales. The phone can be purchased from the official Sprint website, or by calling 1-800-Sprint1 for 18 monthly payments of $22.00 (SRP - $528 USD). And for a limited time, any customers that switch to Sprint will pay only $22.50 per line per month for up to four lines with Sprint's Unlimited Freedom plan. It includes a 4.5-inch touchscreen display with 1600 x 1050 resolution and a QWERTY physical keyboard - the standout feature of this package, which provides tactile feedback while you type. The fifth line will be free for switchers. The phone runs on the Android 7.1 Nougat OS, and is powered by a Snapdragon 625 processor along with an Adreno 506 GPU.
