Downloadable Content Goes Away March 2nd

Danger Developers are receiving an email from Microsoft/Danger informing them that the sales of “one-time donload content” will be discontinued as of March 2nd. Yes, as in tomorrow. So if there was ever a theme, ringtone, or app you wanted to purchase from the Sidekick catalog, you better grab it today.

Free stuff and subscription based apps will remain in the catalog. After tomorrow it sounds like the only way to get ringtones or themes will be via the free sites: Sidekick-Themes and Skringers.

    This is pretty funny because about 2 weeks ago I got paperwork in the mail about a class action lawsuit settlement over the massive data loss back a year or two ago. The settlement was “up to 12 free downloadable apps”

    Yeah, gee thanks.

    It’s gone.

    The new sidekick better be coming out soon, if they’re doing all this.

    Yes the dates for downloads were the week of Feb 14th – a bunch of stuff was on there for free. it was gone by the next Monday. Of course it was kind of pointless since we will soon lose all apps, games, etc. soon!! Re-Install your favorites before the final crash (and uninstall the soon-to-be useless ones like Twitter & Facebook & Weather) and they should stay on your phone unless you get a hard crash on the phone, then you may end up losing it all!!

    Apps do not delete off the phone even after a hard reset :)
