Gizmodo Talks to T-Mobile

Gizmodo was lucky enough to score a chance to chat with two T-Mobile execs, Sam Bell, senior marketing manager, and Jeff Folino, senior manager of product development for the Sidekick. They’ll be chatting about the Sidekick 3 and apparently taking some questions. The Skypecast will be at 4:30pm EDT today here.

Unfortunately we won’t be near a computer with Skype, so if someone can (a) record this somehow and/or (b) ask some questions for us, please let me know. admin@hiptop3.com

    I want to ask him if there will be an update to allow video playback. Other than that I love my new SK3.

    i tried the skype thing but i didnt get any results…i was able to hear things int he first room where he directed us to a high speed conference room but after i got there…i couldnt hear anything so after 2 minutes of hearing beeps and distant talking i just quit and deleted skype all together…hope someone else got something out of this session

    it appears, due to some technical difficulties, they’re postponing this ?cast. doesn’t look like skype will be used, hence the ? in ?cast.

    i knew that would happen… i ordered mine while on my lunchbreak wednesday, did regular shipping and was very surprised to check the tracking info thurs to see that it was being delivered on the 30th, i thought i’d have to wait til july11th (that’s the date tmobile gave me) but im happy it’s here… too bad i gotta send it back!

  13. youngeurow Says:

    Why do u have to send it back?

  14. Faufrey Says:

    I orderd myn the 28th at 12:30am eastern time and got it at 2:00pm the 29th. Express shipping.

  15. Faufrey Says:

    Does anyone know of any ringtone sites that are compatible with the SK? all the ones ive went to arent. the ringtones in the catalog are freakin gaaaaay!

    Why do u have to send it back?

    cuz i ended up with a 2yr contract when i asked for a 1yr contract :-/ and since they can’t just “add-on” the charges i have to send it back and re-order it

  17. murdermittenmatt Says:

    no. no ringtones work cept the ones through the sk catalog

  18. Nicole Says:

    Completely unrelated to the SK3…
    But if you like good music listen to Between The Trees. Their debut album comes out in September.

    http://www.myspace.com/betweenthetreesmusic
    http://www.purevolume.com/betweenthetrees
    or
    http://www.betweenthetrees.net

    YOU WON’T REGRET IT! I promise!!!

    I’m replying to this from my sidekick 3 right now. I am pretty impressed by it minus a few things. None of the ringers I had previously transfered over and the new cataloge doesn’t have the ringers I had which really upsets me. Edge is super fast though and its about as quick to get through a website as it would be if I had dialup. Overall I love the interface, I just wish my ringers would of came or that they had a big cataloge like the 2 had.

  20. darkestknights Says:

    Hey Nicole, My cousin is nagotiatin ghte contract for BETWEEN THE TREES.

    I saw them at Olrando Warped Tour, they were amaizng.

  21. TheCake2005 Says:

    I don’t understand all this texting ****. why would you spend fifteen mins typin somethin that you can call and say in 5 seconds. and you do it with your thumbs. nothin important comes from someone typin with their thumbs. Yall need to stop using nigga technology. if it don’t hook up to a printer than it is nigga technology. you want me to tell you why this sidekick does not hook up to a printer, cause niggas don’t have anything to print. lol. I get my sidekick on the 10th. (insert sad face here)

  22. Dianna Says:

    hahah i can do one! 🙁

  23. harlemz_dominican Says:

    texting is used when u cant use the phone ie. Movie theatre, Class, Work, boring conversation, doctors etc…. doesnt really matter if you get ur sidekick the 10th…as you wont be using it for the keyboard capabilities u could do without..until then use ur house phone 😀

  24. Ya Boy B Says:

    so i guess since everyone has the sk3 aint much more to talk about is there? lol…i aint seen no news in a few days…i wanna know when they will actually do a OTA and give us some new programs because basically its kinda the same except for a couple new things…im patiently waiting i guess lol

  25. murdermittenmatt Says:

    you wont see an OTA for a very long time. im thinking at least a few months, maybe more. the product is brand new, they arent going to release an OTA that early, because they would have just put those features on the launch models.

    AND NO NOT EVERYONE HAS THEIR SK3. I DONT.

    waiting un-patiently until july 10th at 10am. 🙂

  26. joeblow08 Says:

    Well I wanna know when the T-Mobile stores will have the new Sidekick cases in because I hate this eyeglass case that they give you.

  27. blake Says:

    has anyone’s ringers transfered over? does anyone have a different catalog than me because I have about 1/4th of the ringers/games/applications than I use to have… I don’t even have time traveler for an alarm clock option on mine anymore (or the option to buy it)

  28. ogloc Says:

    everyone has the same catalog, dont expect updates until its released in stores

  29. ghettoboi682 Says:

    check this site out.. LOOK TOWARDS THE BOTTOM.. its about recording ringtones
