Review of Sidekick 4G Forums

Those of you that picked up a new Sidekick 4G probably already know that the old Sidekick forums (aka “Powered by Danger” or “hiptop.com”) are no longer geared towards the new Android based Sidekick. We also have no plans on spinning the old forums back up.

But fear not! Mike (aka @ncmacasl), a long time Hiptop3.com contributor, went on the hunt for new forums to chat about the new Sidekick. Here are his notes:

    extremely helpful, thanks.

    I picked up my SK 4G yesterday but haven’t switched over yet. May not do that until the 31st!

    I’ve poked around the T-Mobile.com Forums and you’re right, there are many posts but the majority of them seem to get zero replies. Some threads there do generate some good responses so it’s worth searching through.
