I've had the phone ever since it came out. It's laggy, battery is okay, and it's ugly. BUT I love this phone depspite all the bads I rooted the phone and overclocked it and now it runs like a dream. I have large fingers so the qwerty keyboard is 2nd to non. I was think about getting the mytouch 4g slide but i hated the keyboard. It would be awesome if they remade the G1(G2 is crap) with the hinge and full 5 row keyboard running Ice Cream Sandwich
is this available in the philippines? if it does do i have to unlock it?
I have this phone as of yesterday. here are my complaints.
1st. its ugly
2nd. the display is tiny
3rd. battery life is worse than usual.
other than these complaints, I love this phone

terryakiboy, 22 Aug 2011does this device have a sim card slot? or is it a CDMA?It's a T-mobile phone, so it'll have a SIM card port
I'm using one of these in Vancouver, Canada. I bought it off of Seattle Craigslist. You can unlock it for free (The code is hidden in a file on the phone if you know where to look) and then it works anywhere. But to use the data features you need a provider that operates on UMTS 1700/2100 Mhz. I'm only aware of 3 in North America. T-Mobile, Wind and Mobilicity. I'm on Wind and it's been great. Very good phone. All the power of the Galaxy S it's based on, but with an amazing keyboard.

Anonymous, 25 May 2011I have the Sidekick LX, the previous generation to this 4G model, and I can confirm to all tha... moreThis new "sidekick" is a sidekick in name and hardware design only. Sharp and other people where the one's who designed it before, using the Sidekick Danger OS for it's operating system. THis new "sidekick," the sidekick 4G, is an android phone, designed, and manufactured by samsung. And people who currently own sidekicks are being told that they will eventually need to upgrade because they will eventually be getting rid of the data servers the real sidekicks run on.
I'm about to purchase one for use in Australia. If you have been using android for awhile and know your way around the OS you can unlock it yourself. Unlock codes have already been found on Samsung handsets by opening files in a Hex editor and finding the right Hex string. Also there should be any issues using data on any handset aslong as you have the right APN settings. I have a T-Mobile G2 with data working in Australia without any issues with my carriers APN settings.
Iv had it for almost a month I love it they say it lags but it only does when u turn it on every phone does that id reccomend it to anyone
I have the Sidekick LX, the previous generation to this 4G model, and I can confirm to all that the data services will NOT work in another country besides the USA. My phone can only send and receive calls and texts...that is it. Do not get your hopes up that it will work for you in another country. Outside of USA, its purely a phone to show off with.
