    Question No keyboard no go

    Hi,

    Mary wants to buy a iPhone4, but John says "no keyboard no go".

    What does the go means in here? means "no keyboard no going to buy"?

    Thanks.

    Yes. She means the lack of a keyboard is a deciding factor in not buying the item.

    If yes, so, "no go" = "no going"???

    Re: No keyboard no go

    Actually "no go" is a colloquial phrase meaning "it will not happen" or "it will not work". We often refer to a "no go situation" meaning an impasse.
