I bought this phone on line through TradeMe (New Zealand). It is a fabulous phone as a phone. But, although its so-called "unlocked" you cannot access the Internet (which is why I wanted it.)
Supposedly Microsoft bought the "danger" software it runs on - so I don't see why it cannot access the Internet anywhere if it is unlocked. MS is into Cloud computing afterall.
Does anyone know how to activate Internet access for those of us who buy the phone outside of the US?
can i use msn for this?
am i able to play the games in facebook for this?
do they have any japanese language software for this?
Does this have an alarm clock in it? Cause on the t-mobile site you can buy an alarm clock app. So please help.

(Niagra Falls). That way it would pick up the tower signal from the us tower. Im afraid other than that it absolutely wont work! Trust me on this!
Listen closely folks..You can't unlock a sidekick..i repeat... You can't unlock a sidekick..why..because the your signal passes thru a cell-tower and than it goes to a special (Danger) server tower..Danger was the original company that made Sidekicks now it's owned by Sharp. The Danger server (i believe) is in Dallas Texas somewhere. So, The sidekick only works on T-mobile USA. Thats rite a Sidekick is one of the only T-mobile phones that you can't unlock...Trust me on this folks!
Would the phone work in Canada? I mean will I be able to use the internet, phone calls, txt msg with a Canadian service provider?
hey guys do you know dis work in malaysia and how much it worth???
This phone is not great at all. I bought it to use as a work phone since a lot of people text updates (in the military) and it was an absolute waste of money. Battery sucks, call quality sucks. I returned it and got an Iphone 3GS and have no regrets.
