OTA for the Sidekick LX 2009 to Improve 3G

This one is for all the Sidekick LX 2009 users out there. There’s an OTA update that will be rolling out shortly to help improve 3G connectivity. Personally I haven’t really noticed any bad 3G connectivity, but maybe some of you guys have.

Same old OTA procedure: it’ll download, install and reboot your device. Figured I’d let everyone know so people can stop emailing me about it!

Thanks to everyone that sent this in.

    You’re not alone. Sometimes I’ll have 3G7 with full bars and it’ll say, “The Web Broweser cannot establish a connection”. I don’t know why it does that, and it gets really annoying!

    Also, AIM has just been a mess for me. I sometimes try and sign on and it disconnects me for no damn reason.

    Hopefully this OTA will fix the problem!

    For some reason I can’t use my catalog. Is anyone else having a problem with their catalog? Mines been saying fetching for a few days now.

  4. Some Guy Says:

    If it’s stuck like that, you may have to power off your sidekick and turn it back on to get it to load up properly (haven’t had a problem with mine, here).

    Omfg the 3G sucks… The same happens to me. I found with my old lx had better web browser reception off the data. I could never use my Internet on my sidekick because it always says it can establish connection.

    I’m way beyound annoyed with my sidekick. It’s time for a new reliable phone… To much problems with my sidekick… I can’t trust it
