do not buy this phone
it is a half baked pos
the keyboard is retarded
they made the space bar tiny and removed three alts
for shiz like smileys
question mark key(witch could be done with an alt)
has two shifts and search keys (redundancy much ?)
the buttons feel horrible and are positioned wrong
when you have the phone in landscape
the jack position is in the way
the volume rocker is upside down
the camera lens is obscured
in media room room the keyboard is not used to search for items until you pressed a search button
then touched the search bar
and it is a useless filter anyway

No, you CAN'T use EVERY PHONE ANYWHERE in the World!
Depends on radio frequencies and CDMA vs. GSM, so, next time, think before you write....
My sidekick is a piece of crap, it freezes several time daily and I'm constantly force closing apps.t mobile has admitted the phone is out dated and not a good phone but they refuse to replace it unless I get another sidekick. I have been a customer of t mobile for over 9 years and I am considering breaking my contract and going somewhere else.
I have this phone...but i was told not able to unbrick it so I can use it here in the Philippines....Help???

Anyone still interested? $80 for a rooted Sidekick with the stock firmware. I'll even throw in some cool apps. I want to save up for the Samsung Galaxy Relay 4G with the QWERTY keyboard.

I'm looking for a Sidekick 4G for myself.

More than likely, other providers do not operate at that signal which means browsing will be on EDGE.
The android development section on xda developers is dead. The whole page is discontinued roms.
I'm tempted to just sell this phone on e-bay for $80 bucks and save up for a LG myTouch Q. At least you can install Cyanogen on it. Let me know if anyone is interested.
I'm from Sydney Australia and ive had numerous sidekicks. I'm wanting to get this particular one.... Can it be unlocked & would it work with and Optus/Vodafone sim? Also would the Internet browser bee limited and some of the features be also limited due to if the phone could be unlocked and used by another provider, some one please help me here !!!
Well...just heard T-Mobile officially retired the Sidekick. They aren't sure if this will mark the end of an era. There goes my hopes for Gingerbread. :-(
At least I have the GenericGinger rom installed with the stock 2.3 launcher. Sigh.
Paninu, 16 Jul 2012How can i upgrade the o.s because its doesn't let me upgrade!You can install a custom rom to make it LOOK like ICS, but as of now, Gingerbread has yet to be released by Samsung.
If you feel like living on the edge, you can try out the Ice Cream Sandwich 2.0 Domination at the xda-developers web site.
wizzylize, 13 Jul 2012Hey u'll dat fone is great,yes it's o.s can be upgraded to 4.4 android o.s How can i upgrade the o.s because its doesn't let me upgrade!
