this unit is junk. all versions are junk also. if you think this phone is cool then i say you are inexperianced. i've had 3 of these crappy units. nearly any real smartphone is superior. even as a kids toy it is boring. get a android, windows or blackberry and don't look back.
I have no real reason to be even on this particular with this phone, although I figured I would have a look at what some people consider great. Ok, my opinion... This is by far not a great phone at all. The specifications say it all, I would recommend an enormous variety of different phones versus this. Seriously, why would you want it? For teens? HA! I am a teen, HTC Desire is surely for me, for any tech saavy person, but this is for... Well, unnecessary to comment on that, but I dislike this completely.
i want to order the phone on line but , i have i problem does it work in Saudi Arabia with the same sim card i have here
Hi i'm from manila, and I'm going to the states soon and planning on buying this phone. The only problem is will it work properly when I unlock it?
already have this phone but dont know how to unlock...any help here?
Anonymous, 18 Mar 2010Well i was thinking on getting just the phones without the tmobile service plan so i can use i... moreu can always buy it online and wait for it to be dilevered in front of ur doorstep.
sidekicks are only good for the first few months they are used. they're made that way. the life expectancy for the charging port on every sidekick is about one year, and it just so happens that a new one with the same features and different design comes out every year and tmobile even sends out an email to all their tmail account (only sidekicks are able to use an @tmail other phones use @tmomail) stating a new sidekick and its time to upgrade. Finally to force all users to upgrade all work on the previous model is ceased and for those who dont upgrade they jack up the prices in the catalog.
ex since the 09 came out 08 and lx owners have to pay $10 to record video for 50 serconds
also for the 09 myspace is free but on the older models its and extra $5 a month.
it even took them 4 sidekicks to finally make picture messagging an option
sidekick are marketed towards teens because they know we'll pay whatever they charge us to buy the newest model version. that way we stay locked in our contracts and theyll make money remaking the same phone over and over

AnhBQ, 15 Feb 2010it's lost all the data if the battery is emty or take out the battery such as the sidekick 3?As far as I know, yes. All Sidekicks delete all of their information if they haven't had service/contact/valid sim/no battery/etc for xx amount of time. Either way, if you buy a used one, do a master reset/call customer care to get instructions on how to do it to make sure everything is good
I work for a outsourced call center for T-Mo (One of the English ones thanks). To those that want to unlock the Sidekick (Any for that matter) it is impossible. To use the Sidekick, you need the special sidekick plan which connects to a T-Mo directory (Of sorts) where you log on with your user info on the T-Mo network. No T-Mo credentials, no using the phone. I've spoken with customer care a few times as well and we are not able to unlock the phone either.
Do not buy the phone unless you plan on using either T-Mo's Post/Flex paid service OR the Prepaid service. To use it as data only with optional/no voice, you have to qualify as post pay or go with prepaid. Flex does not support the data only.
Just thought I'd be nice and share this info for those customers that are buying them to try and use on other carriers or are just generally trying to figure them out more =)
