    You guys can take this with a grain of salt but was over on the Nokia forums and someone said this (look at picture) We will find out soon enough as I purchased one off of eBay and have a Verizon version, should get it next week sometime.

    Sent from my HTC6600LVW using WPCentral Forums mobile app
    i believe the post. doesnt make any sense how the new firmware will help, unless they didnt even test the unit prior to selling them. they had the verizon tablet with kb at nokia world, and it was working then

    So I finally got my keyboard and it is awesome. It types well (much better then the Surface keyboard). Hardware feels awesome. I'm so excited. I also tried it on my wife's awesome Verizon Read 2520. I can confirm to you that it works on hers as well ( I have AT&T). So I don't know what the batch stuff from Verizon's is talking about.

    I read the whole thread and still can't figure out how do you get a keyboard for free... : ( feel silly for asking, but what was/is the deal ?

    When the 2520 released, Nokia ran a promotion to give a Power Keyboard away as an incentive for buying the device. I believe the promotion ran until sometime in early December 2013, but could be wrong about that detail. Does that help?

    You had to buy the 2520 between November 22, 2013 and December 2, 2013. If you didn't, or didn't get your claim postmarked by January 31, 2014 then don't bother trying to get one for free. Just go buy one. It is a great addition to an awesome tablet.

    Thanks! That clears it up for me... I guess I missed that train. The tablet is really nice, especially with LTE connectivity... I need to keyboard to complete the package, so I will just have to buy one.

    The keyboard is awesome. I do wish, however, that there was a lighter weight keyboard only option and a slight design change to allow at least two tilt angles. In fact, a minor modification to the current design would allow the option just fine.

    Compared to the original Surface touch keyboard this one is way easier to use.

    I still have not received my keyboard, should I be worried? I got an email a few weeks ago with a $20 voucher promising it would be delivered by the end of Feb. I bought it from Verizon. Anybody else still waiting?

    You can always call to inquire about the status of your paperwork/order. :)

    Folks, it's not really helpful to just post about how you're waiting. Please post whether or not you've called the free keyboard helpline. Otherwise, "me too" doesn't really help any of us to know where your request is at (which I hope is really soon :) ). Calling in could also prompt them to ship your keyboard sooner or help you to know if paperwork/extra effort is needed on your part.

    EDIT:
    Here's the information from the offer page for those who want to call Nokia for information on where their free keyboard request is at:

    "If you have questions about this Offer, please call toll-free: 1.877.906.6542"

    I'm also one of those waiting in the Verizon camp, though I bought my device from the Microsoft Store. I got the email with the $20 code but nothing since then. I have replied to the email but got no information. The keyboard hotline always seems to be busy and I have left them a few messages with no response.

    This has been very shoddily handled and I'm fairly displeased. The main reason I convinced myself to buy this was because the keyboard was free. Now, 3 months later, the keyboard is still a mystery.

    I am still waiting but I could contact them by email, they told me that I wasn't eligible for the keyboard because my purchase receipt hasn't the date on it, I told them the date was there I sent to them again not for email my receipt and they just ignore me. It is too long now, I think if you don't had yet received your keyboard maybe it is because Nokia assume that we are not eligible.

    That's it is bad because that why I bought it and do it in time for the promotion.

    But what can I do now!?

    I finally got some response by tweeting @NokiaUS. They RT'd me @NokiaCareUS who asked me to DM my name and IMEI and said that it would be there in a week. Of course, given that more than 3 months have passed, I'm somewhat pessimistic, but let's see.
