We report measurements of B meson decays to two kaons using 253 fb(-1) of data collected with the Belle detector at the KEKB energy-asymmetric e(+)e(-) collider. We find evidence for signals in B+->(K) over bar K-0(+) and B-0-> K-0(K) over bar (0) with significances of 3.0 sigma and 3.5 sigma, respectively. (Charge-conjugate modes are included.) The corresponding branching fractions are measured to be B(B+->(K) over bar K-0(+))=(1.0 +/- 0.4 +/- 0.1)x10(-6) and B(B-0-> K-0(K) over bar (0))=(0.8 +/- 0.3 +/- 0.1)x10(-6). These decay modes are examples of hadronic b -> d transitions. No signal is observed in the decay B-0-> K+K-, and we set an upper limit of 3.7x10(-7) at 90% confidence level.
