Sidekick 3 Pricing

We’ve been getting a lot of questions from people about the cost of the Sidekick 3. To answer a large number of these, here it is in plain english:

$299 for a 2-year contract
$349 for a 1-year contract
$399 for T-Mobile To Go (prepaid)
You will get to keep your old sidekick
There is currently no word on any sort of trade-in program like the Sidekick 2 had. We’ll let you know when we hear something.

Any questions?

    im calling at 9:00PM on the 27th. Who’s to say it’s not 12:00am where I’m at? 😛 gotta love them Pacific Times.

    I think T-Mobile goes on Eastern anyway. Their corporate offices are out of Jersey.

    Can’t wait til it comes out! Wo0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0o0.

    Qut complaining about the price! This is what’s called Capitalism. It’s pretty much what the United States’ economy is based on. Complaining wont magically change the price. Is it too much? sure, maybe it is.

    But I can almost guarantee you if you care enough to come on this site, post comments and argue then you’re interested enough to still buy it.

    And in the end, T-Mobile has done their job. They’re making money because you’re willing to pay nearly any price for this new phone they’ve got. Viola. :]

    Okay so my contract is up with T-Mobile,it has been since earlier this year. The kept sending me text asking me to renew my contract but I never did but I still have service with them. ANYWAY I have the SK2 so should I be eligible for the upgrade?

    GO WITH THE MOTOROLA Q IT IS SO MUCH BETTER AND HAS A BETTER SCREEN RESOLUTION, VIDEO, AND BETTER OPERATING SYSTEM…PLUS THE SIZE

  19. Britne Says:

    The Q is pretty awesome but the sk3 has that special factor that grabs ppls attention and im not going to lie i like the attention my sk2 attracts. Also verizons rate plans are so expensive if i went to them id be paying like 100 bucks a month for everything. I dunno if i would want to pay all that

  20. ohshhitscarl Says:

    The Motorola Q is a pieceofshit.
    Motorola is always putting out buggy devices. If its not their same old OS it’s an even less stable OS like Windows Mobile.

    SK3 for me 🙂

    Can’t beat T-Mobile’s plans.

  21. Britne Says:

    carl i agree with u im def getting the sk3 i bleed sk blood lol

  22. Drfred4lyfe88 Says:

    SK3 ALL THE WAY *** THe TREO THE Q or w.e Smartphones that isnt a Sk.
