Sidekick Gone from T-Mobile.com

Looks like T-Mobile is no longer selling the Sidekick on their site. The Sidekick LX 2009 was the last device on there and now there’s no sign of it. If you need one, looks like there’s only one place to go.

UPDATE: As many have pointed out, the Sidekick LX 2009 Carbon is back up on T-Mobile for $99. Was the disappearance just another mistake? Stop toying with our emotions T-Mobile!

    Good riddance.

  2. Alessandra Says:

    I looked myself and I was pretty shocked, I knew that they stopped servicing them in the UK yesterday but this is a total shocker for the USA, who knows? It might or might not be a glitch on their site. But it was nice in the long run.

  3. William Says:

    I wonder how soon before the service is discontinued?

  4. Alessandra Says:

    @William, that’s what I’m wondering now too.

  5. Jon Says:

    T-Mobile issued a statement recently saying they would not be stopping sk service in the near future.

  6. Haze Says:

    Wow &+ im going to get α sk lx 2009 &+ im going to try to hack it to get unlimted aim,text,internet,&+ text

  7. Alessandra Says:

    @Jon: Yes they did say that but you never know since they did stop it in the UK yesterday.

    @Haze: You can’t hack it to do that since it’s tied to a server called Danger which is now owned by Microsoft.

    What are they going to do for the people that have the grandfathered 20$ unlmited everything data wise when they want to upgrade sence the sidekick is no longet going to be sold for ever

  11. Andy Says:

    That’s a Lie! Watch them put it up They could run out of them!

  12. eunice Says:

    OMG! This sucks! My sidekick that I got in May, has been acting up for the last few weeks, just shutting down and restarting! Had to call then and they were able to send a new LX 2009! I guess it wasn’t worth it if they’re going to stop the service too!

  13. Andrew Says:

    Yay i was the one who notified Hiptop3 about this via email :) But ya it is sad to see the sidekick not offered anymore to new customers. I say new customers because existing customers still have the option to get a sk lx 09 through their mytmobile account under phone upgrade. Of course the price depends on when you’re due for an upgrade and what not. BUt in all honeslty I wouldn’t get on the sidekick band wagon now because it’s not going to exist for much longer. They already killed service in the UK I wouldn’t be surprised if current sidekick users get a notice about service ending in the U.S. soon. This is really annoying becasue I got my sidekick lx 2009 less than a year ago and I paid the original $500 for it which was ridiculous but I figured it was a good phone and it’d be around for a long time…guess not :(

  14. Haze Says:

    @alessandra yes you can hack it my friend did. And エ saw α video on youtube saying you can using α”disc”

  15. Lukasz Says:

    I dont understand why. I use a phone to send text messages and make an occasional phone call. I dont need a phone that can play video games, be all touch screen, run windows 7, but have a hard time sending a text message. Looks like im gonna have to stick with the lx 09 for awhile because i simply cannot use any other keyboard. I dont have the time of day to fudge around with 1000 different apps. I have an itouch to listen to music and a sidekick to text. If i wanted to play games id play my 360.

  16. Alessandra Says:

    @Haze, yeah you can change the APN or whatever but once T-Mobile or Danger’s servers see it, it gets locked out.

    @alessandra what are you talking about its going to be “locked out”.
    &+ what sidekick do you have ?

  19. Lynn Says:

    How can they legally do that, discontinue service to the Sidekick?

    I love my Sidekick LX-(2007). It is the best keyboard of all the phones that are offered.

    I don’t understand why Microsoft doesn’t design their future phones with this same keyboard as the LX-(2007)? It is the best design ever as it is a full-Qwerty best functioning keyboard.

    I have 5 years of information on my Sidekick, though during the outage I lost quite a bit that was never restored.

    In 2005, I purchased the Sidekick 2 as I saw what a fabulous PDA the phone had with the excellent keyboard and it got even better with the 2007 LX.

    I LOVE THIS LX!

  20. Alessandra Says:

    @Haze, Once the servers see what it’s doing they will turn it off that’s what I mean by locked out and I use a Sidekick’08.

  21. Mr. C0ck Says:

    Wow… so he sidekick has finally released its last major popular device with the 2009.. not for nothing but you guys need to let it go. indeed it was one hell of a device, but microsoft helped end the life of a great device that once was extremely popular and could be found in the hands of almost every teenager throughout every highschool across the nation. Sharps. 1.5 upgrades didnt help the situation either. it is amazing how the sidekick would release a new device every couple months with only one small difference, in some cases no difference just thinner ( Original LX) and it would still sell like hot cakes.. the sidekick had a good run, as you all know, all good things must come to an end..its just how the world works.. The HTC Evo 4G is shaping up to be a Really good phone, no other phone would ever do what the sidekick did best, and that is Instant Messaging, the time has come to finally move onto another device. and trust me you will realize just how outdated the sidekicks really were. this isnt going to bash the sidekick but its the reality of the fact, sidekicks were always outdated

  22. Haze Says:

    @alessandra my friend hacked it. &+ is on aim right now. Go to youtube &+ watch that you can hack it. tmobile won’t find “lock it” becuase エ added $10 to my prepaid account, after the $10 was done tmobile gave me free mintues free aim,internet &+ etc. How come tmobile have not find out there giving me free mintues??? Maybe its α glitch o.0 sorry if エ wrote to much.

  23. Haze Says:

    But im thinking about getting the newest blackberry if tmobile doesn’t cancel sidekicks エ might get α sidekicklx2009

    Yo mik3 how do youu know my friend told me the sidekick 2010 is coming out &+ there going to change how the sidekick flips but エ don’t believe him.

  26. Mr. C0ck Says:

    mik3 sorry to burst your bubble but there is NO future sidekick being released now, nor anytime in th future unless Tmobile re-releases the phone under a new name or brings it back. tmobile has decided to drop the phone entirely and thats why its no longer being offered. Even if a new sidekick was coming, Tmobile would NOT remove the phone from their website, that would only be a loss of revenue to them. Each time a new sidekick was releaseing, tmobile lowered the price of the sidekicks that were already out and they were still on the site. If you notice, the sidekick is NO LONGER offered at the site AT ALL. if the phone was out of stock it would of said temporarily unavaliable. and finally if a new device was in the works, there would have been SOME sort of rumor already, given that Tmobile is preparing to release the My touch Slide, thats far fetched

  30. Mr. C0ck Says:

    ok so incase you misread the article, it says that Verizon and Microsoft are going to release a new device thats targeted towards the younger croud ( the same croud sidekicks were targeted to). Tmobile announced saying that the devices Verizon will carry will be VERY similar to the sidekick devices they carried on their network, however the SIDEKICK BRAND and DEVICES will still be OWNED by Tmobile. what this means entirely is that Verizon is releasing a SIDEKICK LIKE device on their network, NOT that they will carry the sidekick. The sidekick Brand is DEAD face the facts. if you want to hop on another sidekick device, verizons upcoming new devices may be your cup of tea, however sidekicks are dead and thats a fact. The new devices by Verizon WILL NOT BE sidekicks although they will have very similar features like the sidekick had. hopefully these devices will be up to date on features and improve where the SIDEKICKS failed to impress

  31. Jay Says:

    This is sad haha, honestly it is though.
    I’ve always been a Sidekick addict.
    Its sooooo hard to let it go, ya know?
    When you’ve had it for so long [ 05-2010 ]
    I actually had the Moto Cliq for about a day ;
    Then I took it back & got the LX09.
    I realized how much I missed it.
    Now, I’ve decided to finally give it up.
    Most likely Im gonna go for that MyTouch Slide next month.
    I would get the HD2 [ but I gotta have my physical keyboard ]
    But all in all, who knows the T-Mo holds in the future for Sidekicks guys.
    Look how far Blackberries have come.
    This isn’t an end to Sidekicks.
    Its more like a see ya on the flip side buddy.
    You think their gone for good….
    But the Sidekick just may, just may sneak back on us….
    You never know what the future holds guys.
    So for now, upgrade from your Sidekicks.
    When you get home, turn off your Sidekick & just hide it from yourself.

    it is sad to see that the sidekick era has FINALLY come to an end. Sidekicks were the most popular phones a few years back i had a sidekick2, 3 and LX but after the outage last year that sealed the sidekicks fate. its 2010 we offf sidekicks, blackberries and iphones is where its at. you cant do half the sh*t you do on either of these phones on a sidekick. I loved my blue lx 2007 but when i got my blackberry bold 9700 i couldnt be any happier. we had a good run sidekicks but your time has come and like “Jay” said ‘when you get home, turn off your sidekick & just hide it from yourself.” is exactly what i did. RIP SIDEKICKS they not coming face it time to upgrade go get a blackberry or iphone.

  33. drunkard Says:

    Why is everybody so quick to buy phones now for nowadays anyway? To be the “first” with it? CMON SON. So many new phone are coming out so just wait and pick which one u want! All I know is that my lx 09 is staying in my pocket until I find something that is better and definitely not that touchscreen bullcrap. I can’t even dial a number or play a song on a touchscreen when im tipsy. smh. Microsoft killed the sidekick because they are down with the illuminate those ******** are trying to take over the world lol *burpppp*

  34. mik3 Says:

    there not being made by danger nomore it might be made by motorola but its not gonna be a slide they took the 09 off cuz they not selling danger sidekicks nomore but there still gonna be other sidekick made by a different maker

    @mil3, if that’s true then there would be some kind of rumor going on right now but there hasn’t been any but we’ll see what happens in a few months from now.

  37. ncmacasl Says:

    YEP!! It is back on the T-Mobile website!! Just the LX09 Carbon. $99.00 with a new 2-year contract

  38. Andrew Says:

    I wonder why tmobile keeps doing this. It’s like they’re toying with our emotions >=/ or keep having “glitches” in their site

  39. Alessandra Says:

    I don’t know why but I kind of feel that T-Mobile wasn’t toying with our emotions, I guess they just wanted to see how all of us would feel if we all saw the Sidekick removed from their website completely and now that they have seen us pour out our emotions they put it back up, but I know it won’t be there for much longer considering it’s price which is $100 with a 2 year contract, but we’ll see what happens in the next few months.

  40. Haze Says:

    エ think tmobile was trying to mess with are emotions

  41. BKJOE Says:

    Who cares, sidekick users that arent deaf needs to upgrade especially with all these new high tech phones coming out, sidekick is outdated, HTC EVO FTW, and i would to see someone say the sidekick is better than the EVO that would be funny!

  43. Anonymous Says:

    I’ve had my sidekick lx 2007 for about 2 years now and I will miss it a lot but I’m not sure what phone to get next thats good for internet and instant messaging. i heard the blackberry internet is really slow. how are the android phones and the iphone?

  44. Alessandra Says:

    @BKJOE, I’m a deaf and hard-of-hearing user and the Sidekick bores me lol, I see myself playing with my mother’s iPhone more than my Sidekick only because it does more than what the Sidekick is supposed to do.

    @Anonymous: The iPhone is pretty good with the internet and users that have downloaded Opera Mini for their iPhones say that the browser is a breeze but that you have to get used to how Opera works since there are certain functions that don’t work with Opera and I think one of them is the zooming with your fingers when you stretch or pinch but you can double tap to bring what you want to see bigger. Safari isn’t bad either. Blackberry internet is VERY SLOW! My friend who is deaf owns a Blackberry and it takes a very long time to load a page on it, plus she also has some issues with her Blackberry. Has for the Android phone, I don’t know how the internet is on that one you’ll have to play with one at a store and see it for yourself but for me the iPhone is good. I hope this helps.

  45. Anonymous Says:

    @Alessandra Thank you. Do you know if you can switch applications on the iPhone like you can on the sidekick and blackberry? I’m thinking of waiting for the iPhone 4G or get one of the motorola phones with motoblur which has all the social networking applications but I never really liked motorola so I’m not quite sure.

  46. Alessandra Says:

    @Anonymous, you will be able to switch between applications on the iPhone 3GS as well when the iPhone 4.0OS rolls out for it, the iPhone 4G will have it preloaded but the multitasking will come for the iPhone 3GS, and 3rd generation iPod Touches. If you have an iPad then the OS for it will come out in the Fall for multitasking.

    @Alessandra Thank you. I will definitely get the iPhone 4G after it comes out now because I will be able to switch between applications. Do you know what carrier the new iPhone will be on? i’m hearing AT&T or Verizon. Is that correct?

    As of 11:50 PM on Thursday April 22nd it is once again GONE from T-Mobile’s website.

  51. Andrew Says:

    Ya its gone again. Ugh tmobile needs to fix there glitchy site or stop being A*******

  52. Alessandra Says:

    @Anonymous, the iPhone 3GS can also multitask when OS 4.0 comes out in June, the only major difference that I see between the iPhone 3GS and iPhone 4G is the fact that the 4G has a flash on the camera and it also has one for the front too, that and the body appearance of the phone, it looks completely different than the first 3 generation iPhones. It will be on AT&T first, but you never know, there might also be a Verizon version later on but I wouldn’t hold my breath on that one since Verizon has expensive data plans.

    Thanks for the agreement. I mean really, thats the only way us long-term SK users will get over the Sidekick. Just hide it someplace you know you never look for something at. If and when you get a new phone, and you have your Sidekick in clear view, you going to wanna use it.

    The Sidekick was the FIRST. FIRST. FIRST.
    QWERTY keyboard phone.
    I mean they had the keyboard PERFECT.
    The Sidekick had & still has the best keyboard there is to date.
    The SK keyboard comfortably fits your hands, like a pc keyboard.
    Sharp knew what they were doing when it came to the Sidekick keyboard.

  73. Preston Says:

    I spoke with a T-Mobile customer care associate today (because i had an issue with my sidekick, but they sent me a new one free of charge) but she told me that there will be a new sidekick out later this year. I am taking it with a grain of salt, but its possible. Since the kins are being made by sharp and have what resembles a sidekick-like keyboard, I wouldn’t bet on the sidekick ever being the same, but its possible for tmobile to release a phone with sidekick branding. Maybe even with the swivel screen, but my guess is it will be made by htc and have android and a touchscreen. Welcome changes to bring the sidekick up to date, but i dont think it will ever be the same. Especially since HTC’s hardware is generally pretty lame.

  88. Alessandra Says:

    @Tracey, do you have to tell them to send you an e-mail about it or are they just targeting Sidekick users by default about the MyTouch Slide 3G? And what about those that just renewed their contract last year to get a new Sidekick? What happens with those customers? Will they be able to just switch to another device keeping their grandfathered data plans?

  89. Haze Says:

    ^ i have a sidekick 2008 and didn’t recive the email.

  90. Alessandra Says:

    @Haze, I also have a Sidekick 2008 too and I haven’t received ANY e-mail from T-Mobile, maybe he/she is just spreading rumors that T-Mobile is targeting Sidekick users about the MyTouch Slide 3G.

  91. Haze Says:

    ^Wow &+ i want to know about the new my touch &+ find out if there going to cancel sidekick services in the u.s

  92. Alessandra Says:

    @Haze, that’s what I’d like to know but I doubt it would be anytime soon unless they see a reason to shut down the sidekick like no one buying them anymore or whatever. The only thing I want to know aside from thinking about them canceling the Sidekick service here in the USA is keeping my $20 data plan to use with another phone even if it doesn’t have the label “Sidekick Data” it could just be a smartphone data plan.

    He mytouch slides are nice nd tmobile press release has them for june nd I have a 09nd haven’t recieved a email ether

    @Anonymous, I know I saw pictures of the MyTouch Slide 3G but the keyboard seems small on that. I think that user named Tracey is just spreading rumors about T-Mobile targeting Sidekick users with an e-mail about the MyTouch Slide 3G.

  95. Tracey Says:

    I have a sidekick lx 09 and I know six other people that have one too. I have received the e-mail and so have they. I didn’t ask them to send me the e-mail I just received it yesterday so therefore I asked my friends about it because I have always had a sidekick so I wanted to know why tmobile would be sending me news about another phone. As far as spending $20 for data if you change phones I doubt it because I know people who left sidekicks to go to other phones and they had to pay more for there data

  96. Alessandra Says:

    @Tracey, maybe they’re just e-mailing the users that have an LX’09 then because I have the ’08 and I’ve been a Sidekick user since 2005.

    @Anonymous: I know that the keyboard on that is a 4-row that’s why I said it’s small and it looks like a cute phone, I personally like the red one since red is my favorite color. But I don’t know if I want to go with Android since I don’t know what’s so good about Android aside from alot of free applications in the catalog.

    what does this email say ?does it have a speacial offer or discount?nd how long have you had your 09 i had it for 6 months nd probly they only sending it to people tht are eligible for upgrade?

    i got my lx09 back a couple weeks before the great SK crash.
    i got the email about the mytouch slide too

  102. Alessandra Says:

    @LX09 user: Did you have to renew your contract before you got your Sidekick LX’09 before the outage in October? It looks like T-Mobile is only contacting those with an LX’09 what about all of us old users? Jeez….

  103. magnus Says:

    @LX09

    I have LX09 and I didnt get message from T mobile?.. Can you please forward t mobile offer e mail to me? it’s king_gambit@tmail.com

    thanks,

    P.S

    I look up google abt MyTouch 3G look nice.. the keyboard only have 4 row :( wish it’s 5 row!

    I thought, Microsoft bought Danger OS for 500 Million dollars and changed new device the next sk is Kin 1 & 2??

    but recently..I just found out, it’s wasn’t!! why M$ bought it not for MyTouch 3G??

    Kin 1 & 2 look cool, almost same QWERTY keyboard feel, yes it’s 5 row keyboard… it’s bigger screen display, up to 80GB depend model, FM radio, GPS, many more and of course it’s have touchscreen!!!…. the cost $50 for Kin 1, $100 for Kin 2 (after rebate) I m sad, Kin is only provider Verzion, not T mobile..

    Microsoft is 500 million dollars Giant Gorllia!

  104. Alessandra Says:

    @magnus, where did you read that one of the devices have 80GB? NONE of them do, read the specs CAREFULLY, the Kin ONE has 4GB of internal memory, the Kin TWO has 8GB of internal memory, the Kin ONE also has a 5MP camera, the Kin TWO has a 8MP camera, NOTHING about them having 80GB of internal memory. also the keyboard on the Kin ONE and TWO both have a 4-row keyboard, I am looking at those two devices myself while posting this.

  105. magnus Says:

    probably I misunderstand that Kin have support up to 80gb? I have see Zune have up to 80GB and I thought, it’s same Kin? I don’t remember Kin have 5 row but I remember I saw this keyboard look almost same LX.. it’s same 5 row? sorry for my misunderstand :(

  106. Alessandra Says:

    @magnus, it’s alright and no it doesn’t have support up to 80GB, the Zune is a different device, the Zune is NOT a phone, it’s an mp3 player that can also go on the net but not like these Kins, the Kin has a camera where the Zune doesn’t have one. The Kin TWO has a similar layout to how the keys are layered on the Sidekick, but both devices Kin ONE and TWO both have a 4 row keyboard, another thing to note is that the Kin TWO takes better pictures than the Kin ONE. Go look on Verizon’s website and check out the specs on both devices, it will tell you right there.

  107. lx for life Says:

    I haven’t gotten that email either. I had my lx09 probably before anyone posting here. I had it like a month after it came out but it was an uprade. I got a 8gb memory card for free with it and a case. Um, what the freak is going on?

  108. lx09user Says:

    Yes I had to renew my contract.

  109. Alessandra Says:

    Microsoft Didn't Kill The Sidekick
    Companies Are Too Busy Trying To Keep Up With What PEOPLE want And Ask For
    And Since They "want" Touchscreens and hundreds of useless apps they see the sidekick as useless so they must create and deliver what the consumer wants…sad..

    I Agree with you… but for me, I don’t need phone call… cuz I m deaf.. sklx09 is perfect for deaf people user..

    @
    Alessandra

    I m learn about new myTouch 3G Slide.. I see there new touchpad, no trackball.. isn’t that 1st time any phone?

    and also.. what excatlly size that one? I know, the info. say 3.4 inches.. what about width & height?.

    thank you

  125. Alessandra Says:

    @Magnus, I figured you were deaf because of the way you talk, I’m hard-of-hearing and the Sidekick is perfect for me as well, but I also talk on the phone. :) The MyTouch Slide 3G is 3.4 inches with the screen but I’m not so sure about everything else, I do know it’s running Android, you may want to check out the specs on T-Mobile’s website.

  126. FeenForKicks Says:

    @magnus
    I have a few deaf friends and all prefer the sidekick as a device specially because of its ease and its keyboard I don’t know if you agree.
    But I must say the sidekick lx 09 is the best one yet it does everything right without excess features some people just don’t need…
    Eh *shrugs*
    I guess everyone just has their own idea of what a cell phone should be..

  127. AceKannon Says:

    Its sad how people dnt realize how the sidekick line has been a catalyst when it comes to text, web, and basic ease of use. But to me, these features could revive the sidekick line like never before:
    *Tracknav(mytouch slide 3g-notice it has no trackball)
    *iPhone quality/size screen
    *custom Danger/Windows OS, so its not as locked down as the current Danger OS and can be hacked and modded(free ringtones anyone?)
    *Better App Catalog, sidekicks were the first to have a “app store”. With a new custom OS and better features, this could get better
    *TOUCH SCREEN, atleast! People touch my lx screen and wonder why nothing happens. It would be nice if the next screen was touch to some degree if at all
    *More LED Lights, because when my lx starts and gives me notices, I get greeted by “fireworks”. Who doesn’t like that?
    *Bigger Inbox, because major texting is big these days
    *Motion Rotation Screen, you know how when you turn an iphone certain angles, the screen turns and ajusts too? If you look at any sidekick after the lx 07, it looks like it can, and should be held with the trackball at the bottom, I.e. Mytouch.

    These are just my oppinions. I know sidekicks can still have life if they added these features in the future, correct?

  128. AceKannon Says:

    Oh, and I forgot to add a better quality camera(atleast 4-5 megapixels and built in memory for music and photos and video, social networking clients standard, and support for up to 16gb microSD.

    I guess I can’t complain too much, I’ve had free data services for like the past 3-4 months. I just don’t get text but I have a nextel phone I just call everyone from. I really only used my sidekick for the web. I get the web, email, and instant messenger all for free. I don’t understand it either, I do the pay as you go though. Anyone else having this occurance?

  131. AceKannon Says:

    That’s just how I view a better sidekick. Touch and a custom windows/danger OS would actually be kinda ****. But im using the prepaid sidekick plan though.

    Anybody else have any ideas on what would make a new sidekick better or stick out?

    @magnus, no it’s HTC + Android 2.1 + 4.3 screen, with a 1GHz snapdragon processor, and 16GB of internal storage, not 8GB, the 8GB of internal storage is for a different phone which is the HTC Incredible, read all that information very carefully before posting next time. I wonder how the device will look, the LX’09 looks beautiful but now we have to see what this will hold and if it will have a swivel screen in which I doubt it will have.

  145. magnus Says:

    16GB??? Geez! LOL that much better! I thought, it’s was 8GB?… sorry my misunderstand…

    If the sidekick twist is running Android, then it’s a sidekick in name only. Just another android device. Some people may be fine with that, though there are already plenty of android phones with keyboards out there already. In any case, it’s not a real sidekick (danger OS based). Just sayin’…

  153. AceKannon Says:

    Well basically its not gonna be da same if it looks anything like da G1. Quite frankly, the Lx 2009 is one of da most beautiful phones I’ve seen ever. If they slapped a touch screen on that phone, upped the size to like 3.7 inches, nd used the signature swive screen on it while adding android, that pretty much would have me sold.

  154. AceKannon Says:

    I meant upped da screen size. But if its as big as da HD2, that’s murder. As beautiful as it may be, no sidekick needs a screen that big.

  155. LoSo Says:

    it seems they finally decided to make the Sidekick there flagship device?? and move it up from the mid tier level it was once on and gave that section to the mytouch…i could only imagine a 4.3 incher flipping in motion!

    I know rite. Just imagine a screen that gynormous in flipping action! Its like God intended this phone for us T Mobile users.

    @magnus: The more I think about it, T-Mobile just owns the name “Sidekick” so they can slap it on any device, the Sidekick is originally called a “Hiptop” it’s T-Mobile who changed the name from “Hiptop” to “Sidekick” it only makes sense since Danger is bought by Microsoft, not Google.

  161. magnus Says:

    @

    yes, I know, T mobile own Sidekick a.k.a Hiptop and Microsoft bought Danger Inc.

    Well I just want to know what the concept model will look like. If u haven’t realised yet, Sidekicks are designed by Sharp Corp. If Sharp isn’t designing the phone, nd Danger isn’t doing the OS, I doubt if it will have the swivel screen OR the 4 Danger logos we’ve come to love=( Damn, technically it won’t be a sidekick then=(

    yea just because it won’t have certain things that danger made won’t mean it won’t be a good phone…think of it as a fresh start…you can’t lie danger didn’t do a good job with the phone from probably the 3 on forward..it was more just rehashs of the same phone with MINOR upgrades..here we are POSSIBLY getting a MAJOR upgrade and tmobile bringing the sidekick brand to the high end arena..this is BIG news! so just because it won’t have some things danger designed and sharp made isn’t a bad thing..because to my knowledge HTC is making beautiful devices and on top of the sense UI i think we shouldn’t worry..hopefully things are true and we can get some concepts soon enough!!IM GOING CRAZY!

    I hope in a couple of months they post pics of the sidekick twist.doesn’t anyone think its a dumb name to call a sidekick.

  180. Alessandra Says:

    @Haze: I do agree that it is dumb to call it that since Sidekicks are basically named with their numbers or if your with the LuXury version then it has 2 extra letters like the LX’07 and LX’09.

  181. Haze Says:

    Is it true that the sidekick twist is coming out in the summer.

  182. Alessandra Says:

    @Haze: No one knows for sure, the only one who may know for sure is probably the carrier.

  183. AceKannon Says:

    My biggest concern is wether HTC will still do the swivel screen. If you didn’t know, sharp didn’t manufacter the first sidekick model. A company called Flextronics made it. So since the swivel design isn’t patented to a brand, im guessing HTC could make it too. Add a HD touch screen nd hidden keyboard, like a true sidekick, and it will have me sold. Only as long as it stays true to the Sidekick line because if it looks anything like the mytouch slide, I won’t buy it. All I ask of HTC is that if they do make the phone, make it look somewhat like a sidekick while keeping the elegance of all other HTC models….just not the G1. I hated that design. Anybody else agree?

  184. AceKannon Says:

    Anybody have any ideas as to what this thing mite look like?

    Good riddance.

    Deafies use all the sidekick and they cant live without it… We did try with blackberry and we all hate it so we go back to sidekick and we are more happier with it…. Please dont shut down with sidekick at all!!! we are very worrry about it!!!

  187. Alessandra Says:

    @Rhonda: Not ALL deafies use Sidekicks, I have 5 friends who are all deaf use a Blackberry. I know one that uses an Android device. But yes I will agree that the Blackberry sucks only for it’s size, it’s too small and too crammed, it should be spacious to allow texting to be easier when you hold it, I couldn’t stand typing on the blackberry since it’s too small! I love the Sidekick as well but many of us have to move on to a different device if the new Sidekick won’t be supported by Danger anymore, let’s just wait and see what’s on the horizon. :) By the way Rhonda, I’m also deaf. :)

  188. Magnus Says:

    @ Rhonda

    I agree with you, Sidekick is best one.. and best QWERTY keyboard.. I know, many deaf people buy blackberry and I don’t understand why they go after BB? it’s so damn small keyboard!! it’s is worse!! I don’t understand why they after BB?? they can’t use phone call cuz they are deaf, can’t hear it lol plus keyboard is terrible! I m sorry, I m so pinic!!!! I hate BLACKBERRY!!!

    I m deaf, 100% can’t hear… that is why, I can’t typing this ****** keyboard! it’s HORRIBLE!!

    I have sidekick since 2002…. sk mono, sk color, sk2, sk3, and last now I m use sklx09!! and I LOVE IT!

    I hope, there will come true HTC sidekick!!! aaarrrggggghhhhh!! I love Super AMOLDED with 4.3 inches and 1 ghz processor! ahhhh!! I want it!!

  189. Magnus Says:

    @ Alessandra

    I thought, you told mev that you are hard of hearing and you can talk on phone? I m confused…

    deaf and hard of hearing are different mean… :)

  190. Alessandra Says:

    Magnus: I am deaf and hard-of-hearing but I consider myself more of a deaf person due to the fact that can’t really hear too much once my hearing aid is removed from the once good ear, without my hearing aid you have to talk louder for me to hear you because my hearing loss in that ear is on the Severe-To-Profound level which is the last level of being able to hear with a hearing aid before you become fully deaf. Yes I can talk on the phone thanks to my hearing aid but I can also talk on the phone without my hearing aid too, if I put the Sidekick on Speakerphone where it’s LOUD enough for me to hear what’s being said over the phone whenever I have my hearing aid off, I never put it on speakerphone when I have my hearing aid on, I just hold it up to my hearing aid.
