Sidekick LX 2009

We got the above image in our inbox. The reader sending it in danielle says she was taking a survey about smart phones on QuizPoints and was presented with this one. Here are the specs it lists in the photo:

Social Networking Suite of Apps
- Facebook
- MySpace w/ video upload
- Twitter
- YouTube Mobile Access via browser

GPS Location Based Search
- Turn by Turn Navigation
- Microsoft Live Local Search and Maps

Content Creation
- Blog publishing, editing, and management client
- Photobucket Upload and Management
- Video recorder and upload to MySpace/Photobucket

Communications
- Signature Sidekick IM/SMS/E-mail Experience
- Microsoft Outlook/Exchange synchronization

Hardware
- Large (3.2 inch WVGA) screen with sharp 854×480 resolution
- Thin design
- 3.2 megapixel camera with autofocus, flash and video recording
- Large QWERTY keyboard
- Expandable memory up to 8GB via MicroSD

Everything seems to match up with what a Sidekick LX 2009 would have. It mentions 3G, which is pretty much a given at this point. The introduction of Microsoft Live Search and maps makes a lot of sense since Microsoft now owns Danger. The addition of GPS (finally!) is also a nice complement to the maps and helps the Sidekick compete a little bit with the iPhone and other location-enabled devices. But I’m sure the thing that everyone is freaking out over now is the mention of YouTube mobile access. It’s probably the #1 request for the Sidekick by the majority of the users. It doesn’t seem that out of reach since the Sidekick can play video already, it just needs a way to get it from YouTube. None of the apps are groundbreaking, but they’re things that a lot of us would agree it would be nice to have on our Sidekick.

The hardware looks about right too. A 3.2MP camera isn’t the 5mp camera we hoped for, but it is a god bump up from the 2MP camera in the Sidekick 2008 (not to mention the 1.3MP in the LX). The screen is higher resolution (too early to start working on those new themes?) and of course the familiar keyboard is still there.

Is this the Sidekick Blade that we’ve been hearing whispers about? Hard to tell. We know that “Blade” is a codename and that internally (in software) it’s know as the “m3“. The “m2″ was the Sidekick 3, so one would guess the “m3″ would correlate to the elusive Sidekick 4 and a “large” upgrade in device. (FWIW, the Sidekick LX was the “m2-hd”) Could MSDanger be working on two devices? It’s very possible, but we don’t have anything to back this up or refute it yet.

So is this for real? We think so. At least we think it’s specs drawn up by someone official that is testing the water with consumers to see what they think. Whether it’s what we actually see in a device in the future, I’m not 100% sure. I think it definitely sounds like the next revision of the Sidekick LX. It’s not too ambitious, but does add a few of the most requested features. Seems to be the way that T-Mobile/MSDanger like to do things with the Sidekick.

    Awwwesome…. can’t wait to see how much the data plan will cost though, since Tmobile recently bumped data plans and everything.

    i regret switching to sprint soo much.they suck
    I WANT THIS SOO BAD!!!

  9. rob Says:

    I believe there is a picture of this leaked! I didn’t think so until I saw this post. Check out the leaked pictures of the t mobile g2 and you can see a slim sidekick in the back! It looks red to me but it could be available in more than one color. Here is the link to the picture

    http://www.pcworld.com/article/158078/android_tmobile_g2_leaked_photos_and_facts.html

    At first I thought it was the 08 but I doubt it.,, your call. Let me know what you think via e mail

  10. rob Says:

    BTW can someone please suggest threaded sms messaging it would help a lot!

  11. james peter Says:

    I HOPE THE DONT FORGET THE TOUCH SCREEN AND THE OPERATING SYSTEM. THEM AGAIN T MOBIL WILL ALWAYS STINK WITH THE PHONES
    I THOUGH THIS WAS GOING TO TAKE T MOBIL TO THE TOP BUT I GUES I WAS WRONG… YOURS TRULLY VG

  12. squish Says:

    tottally 1337

  13. cnikole Says:

    Can we please get threaded texting!?

  14. Big O Says:

    “I hope they don’t forget the touch screen or the operating system”??? Proof idiots should not be allowed to post. The sidekick has one of the easiest/ most popular UI’s ever made. And many people don’t like all touch. It’s still not a perfect technology. T-Mobile is going innovative on the phone front and anyone who doesn’t recognize the carrier stepping it up in that department is an idiot.

    Mark my words. T-Mo will be known as most creative/ innovative carrier in 2 years.

  15. sidek!ick user Says:

    No one will ever be happy. Jesus christ. It has a 3 megapixel camera. Come on that is a better camera then the iphone! 3 megapixels use to be on digital cameras. Youtube,facebook,myspace,gps? Come on now. 3g?! This is gonna be a hit. The iphone is good but to me this is better. I mean honestly the iphones keyboard is enough to vomit. But apple makes great products. Im not critizsing them (i have an ipod touch and a macbook) But for a phone im gonna stick with my kick. xD

  16. tmoboii Says:

    Wow it looks nice hopefully you can download **** off the internet to bad I’m switching to Sprint though but its good to see a cool phone wit T-Mobile

  17. sidek!ick user Says:

    oh and will we have to pay to use myspace, youtube, and gps? Or download them as apps? I hope we dont have to play for them because those should be on the phone as a feature. Its not technically a feature if u pay for it.

  18. Anonymous Says:

    Nice Pic danielle, how did you get it…phone looks pretty cool

  19. Fujitsujeff Says:

    Not bad …. will need more information. So far the continuation of Flash and the keyboard will be the only reason I think about coming back, as of right now the G1 is the better phone for me. I really think this new Sidekick version will be a good upgrade for those still sporting the sidekicks …

  20. Mike B Says:

    Personally, I don’t want TOUCH-SCREEN! It mess up the cleanness on the screen so no touch-screen, period. And no threaded texting, cos cmon people, ur asking too much. Back off for a min and let the creative people do the work n all we gonna do is test them out, and if u like it, buy it. If not, then go away n switch to another company cos we don’t really need u, cramping up our style n all, k? Get it, got it, good!

  21. mb Says:

    I can say that tmobile is currently in the process of phasing out the current lx, as stores sell out of their current stock they will not be getting more…so yeah..

  22. JayJizzle Says:

    it looks good tho what u think the prices is gonna be

  23. meme Says:

    The threaded texting is something i thought would be very useful. Also, it would be nice if the phone would be more open sourced so we could all download applications like the iphone/g2. But I’m excited for this phone. I hope it’s price is competitive with the G2 that is supposed come out in mid May. I am so sick of my LX I want something new right now!!! lol

  24. sk1-LX Says:

    Would this mean I would have to give up my grandfathered $19.99 package due to 3G? :(

    Correct touch screen isn’t needed or wanted on a device like this!

  26. cindy Says:

    i cant wait to upgrade from 08 to the LX!!!

  27. Sam Says:

    Yes, I agreed with Mike B about that NOT WANT TOUCH-SCREEN. I really HATE touch-screen becasue easy mess up like a everyday……I want WITHOUT touch-screen THAT IT………Really Not need use touch-screen…

  28. Real Sidekicks Swivel Says:

    Ya’ll gotta Stfu about touchscreen that’s a feature that’s been around for years,it’s nothing new that ya’ll gotta be thirsty for… Only people in the south and little kids want touchscreen on a sidekick… And for what? To show off? Pfft! No need to show off a pointless feature,I have an iPHONE and a ugly *** G1 and touchscreej is just boring.I only like it on the web browser on my i.This kick looks decent though I personally thought the LX was the hottest kick right next to the 2… So i can understand the return of another LX but i’m not feeling the 2009 at the end nor the myspace,facebook and twitter or whatever it is because those are free websites and with 3G they’ll load instantly. But hopefully we get free ringtones or video ringtones to take it to another level =p but I hope this kick is not so locked down and has more features than just 3G and choppy as$ youtube streaming… Def not worth $300-500 IMO.

  29. Truth Be Told Says:

    Danielle said she only posted this pic on PoweredByDanger.com.

    Looks like we got some lying going on about you “getting” this pic in your inbox…

    Writters kill they’re credibility when you guys try and make sumn look like its not.

    That’s too bad you couldn’t have just told the truth..
    Like… “I was cruisin sites and cam across this info..”

    Lame..

  30. admin Says:

    We got the info via email from someone claiming they took it, but then found danielle’s post and realized the person that emailed us was not telling the truth about how they obtained it. So we updated our post to reflect that. Notice the crossed out text? kthxbye

  31. Alex the PI Says:

    wow ***** ***** *****

    sk users complain about everything

    get over it. it’s a nice device. touch screens suck. end of story.

  32. Sam Says:

    Looking good. I’ll buy one. I’m really liking the gps.

  33. Dang Says:

    a touch screen would feel out of place. honestly this thing is perfect to me. Now all i ask is what colors does it come in?

  34. catalyn Says:

    I am a deaf person from nyc…..

    is that hoax photo?…that’s sucks…..i want see to change add new sidekick HD? harddrive 80GB? Movie video like iphone? web flash video like pornhub mobile video? touchscreen like G1? dash size like PSP screen? what about wifi? download to PC? rich graphic os? qwerty soft button(not like this hard button) and free theme?, 3.2 camera?, video phone like webcam?!!! I demand them change new combianing HTC, GOOGLE, APPLE, sony, “SIDEKICK HD” right now because same old a **** sidekick!. how about “sidekick HD” is that better? If I were you I would buy G1 or G2 and G HD? DO SOMETHING I hope that MS and DANGER LISTEN ME what i have many idea than them MS and DANGER. duH!

  35. Andy,Inc Says:

    Myspace and facebook are nice and all but not for $1.99 a month. iPhone and iPod touch have it for free from App Store so why should we have pay for it? >=[. Just got my Tony Hawk LX I'm satisfied for now just wish video quality was better but I'm glad it atleast has video and mms(iPhone doesn't! =])

  36. roando Says:

    why do u care about it that much, go get another phone!

  37. 420 Says:

    Same old sidekick. Nothing new like the author says. This phone should be a $100 w/ contract compared to the other phones T-Mobile is selling.Oh I forgot You guys will pay anything as long as its and sidekick (T-Mobile knows this too).

  38. Mike B Says:

    To 420:

    Yeah! (Talkin about 420 n im stoned right this second), but dude, if there wasn’t a sidekick invented yet, I’d actually have to find another phone like Iphone, or whatever but im glad Sidekic is out and I got TH LE kick so thats y I love it, ever since the black n white sk came out in 2002. Bascially, when I was a kid, my mom said that I couldn’t have a phone since im deaf but I told her that Sidekick is the perfect phone cos a lot of deaf kids in my deaf skool got 1 too so my mom gave in n got me 1 :) addicted ever since!

  39. Hhhhhhh. Says:

    I have a regular hiptop slide 2008, and it doesn’t have video capability, Does the sidekick LX 2009 have youtube mobile, so I can watch videos on my sidekick?

  40. Hhhhhhh. Says:

    Also, Why doesn’t the HipTop slides have video included?

    I would really like to know, please comment back or email me.

  41. bre Says:

    IT DOESNT WORK AND IT NEVER WILL, not unless you’re some kind of phone expert/hacker

  45. Beasty Says:

    Wii this phone have wifi?

  46. Shantell Says:

    It sounds like a cool upgrade. Whenever they place it in t-mobile stores. I’ll buy it.

  47. deecee Says:

    i sware i dont understand why sooo many people have negative comments on this phone. in my opinion, its actually a nice upgrade, considering how far the sidekick franchise has come.
    NOW! all I need to kno, is when this device is being released
    (hopefully within a 3/4 month period?)
    and i’ll leave my bb curve and go back to the sidekick =]

  48. deecee Says:

    i honestly dont see whyy some people have negative coomments for this device. in my opinion, i think its a pretty cool upgrade, considering how far the sidekick franchise has come.
    NOW! all I have to do, is find out when this device is being released (hopefully within a 3/4 month period) and i’ll leave my bb curve and pick the sklx 09. =]

    . Yell I fell ya. I guess this phone isn’t for everyone. If you love the phone. There’s nothing wrong with that. Me personally feel I shouldn’t be nickel and dimed to death on ringtones and apps.

  51. LXaz Says:

    I’ve had the LX since it was released, and I’ve loved it. I keep comparing it to my friends’ phones, and they’re all missing SOMETHING either one or more features the sidekick offers. Now with 3G added, and some other fancy things, we’ll finally be up there competing with this iPhone and Storm bullshit. Who needs a touchscreen?

    The SK series of phones is for TEXTAHOLICS. People that will probably get carpal tunnel in their 30s because of this. I’m proud to be one of them. Can’t wait for this new LX! Want a touch screen? Get an iphone, I’m sure they’ll ditch their newest 3G model once the SKLX09 comes out. Then you’ll be left with old second gen ****! Everything always ends up Microsoft vs Apple, and now look where we are.

    Love it, just polish it up a bit around the edges [not literally] and release it! all SK users will get it! I know I will.

  52. BBane Says:

    I agree with those on not having a touch screen. It takes away the SK originality.. As someone said before, watch out the SK is going to blow all phone models out of the digital world. I love my SKLX since I am deaf to and it helps me stay in contact with my family and friends and offers IP-Relay. Phones like the IPhone are not reallt hearing impaired/deaf friendly. So now that Microsoft owns Danger, they are going to kick up the SK’s models a few notches!!

  53. sidekickdosmilnueve Says:

    All this sounds good, but i don’t see them mention anything about being able to create your own ring tones which is what most of us really want.

    Does anyone have anymore info on this?

  54. El_profe Says:

    Wow I do not get why ppl are still comparing this to the iphone and all these other smart phones at the end of the day this is not a smart phone its a multimedia phone. The sidekick bar none has the best Im clients available because we have dedicated apps, unlike the aim on other phone which is ****. this is a great refresh to the phone as well as it looks thinner too, 3g is something I wanted and i am glad I have. As for touch screen who gives a **** do you ppl realize that the old *** palms used to have touchscreen… and no one talked about it, but as soon as the iphone came out ppl acted like it was a new innovation some of you ppl really are retarded. Im digging the fact that it will have a better camera, hopefully with a flash as well. the youtube and stuff is cool. some of you are asking for a laptop basically which is retarded, if you really want 102353462 features get a laptop and call it a day.

  55. justin Says:

    This sidekick looks really nice! The only thing that i don’t like is the back, it looks weird. Also if T-Mobile doesn’t put a touch screen, that don’t mean they for got it. There’s no use for the touch screen if u have the key board. I hope they have better video recording too. I also hope that u don’t have to pay for youtube

  56. T-L-M Says:

    It looks sick to bad I gotta instinct I had an 08 loved the keyboard and the aim and the email I hated the fact you can’t download **** over the Internet but if they fix that then I’ll guarantee it’ll be a hit!! And they need a BETTER catalog!!

  57. Ben Says:

    U still didnt anwser my question could it have Wifi?

  58. Queen4111 Says:

    No WiFi and No UMA ??????

  59. diablo Says:

    One of the things I really want is for the screen to be all screen. All of the previous sk’s have that thick boarder with the tmo sign and sidekick sign on it taking up all that space. Give me a Full screen. Put the tmo and sk sign on the back or somewhere else. All that good screen real estate going to waste.

  60. TeeTO Says:

    i think its ah slide well it luks like ah slide idk oh well we shall see

    but i dont think so, because didnt the slide suck in sales?
    soo it wouldnt be very smart to make it a slider.

  62. sidek!ick user Says:

    I read on a website that its a slide up screen. UH! why the heck would they do that? Keep the swivel! Thats what makes the sidekick the sidekick. you need to kick it. Not slide it. Maybe thats a lie.. I mean the swivel to me is such a great design.

    how much is it gunna cost?? dis phone is poppin ill trade any phone in for it

  70. Sidekick Blade Says:

    Its probably goin to be around the $200 price range so it can compete with the iPhone and G1 or G2 if it comes out before the Blade and if it doesn’t say if it has wifi why the **** you askin if it does we don’t work on the Blade

  75. iSet Trend`s Says:

    i think this fone will be like one of the best fone.
    i just recently got a sidekick 2008 and it being my first sidekick i love it.

    but this isnt bad at all.
    i just hope the price is not as high as the lx is.

    but ima definitely cop me one of these as soon as it hits the shelfs
    (:

  76. meme Says:

    The thing I don’t like about the sidekick is the web browser. I’d like to have tab browsing and a better way to view full screen. That’s where the touch screen would come in handy. I don’t know. I am starting to dislike the single column web browser.

  77. Martin Says:

    OK shut up about a touch screen sidekick because its a horrible idea and it will never happen trust me you dont want a touch screen sidekick it will suck!!! i have a voyager from verizon right now and i hate touch screen its so slow and ***!!!

    im switching to T-mobile hoping a legit sidekick will come out before my bday

  79. kevy Says:

    This sidekick09 is hot and I’ll definitely be getting this.. I just hope it comes out really soon.. And **** a touch screen.. It would take away the purpose of the sidekick and yes the screen should be much wider and hopefully the browser is faster lol happy bday to all the pisces lol

  80. apon chowdhury Says:

    i want to know how much is the 2009 lx

  81. lilfreshxv15 Says:

    wdf i thought there was going be a touchsreen 09???

  82. 915rko Says:

    this phone looks like a champ. it will definitly be a phone other companies will compete with. as far as options, the sidekicks have always had pros and cons in every phone. they will never please everyone because we all have different taste. touchscreen on the sk? well not for me, unless they found a good way to integrate it but it would make it more expensive. the full qwerty keyboard makes the sidekick the sidekick. as far as apps, we pay for them because they are exclusive to us, like the my space. we have the best my space app out on phones. my space mobile is lame. just add 3g, threaded txt for you people, third party apps and ringers would be nice but its a corporation. they’ll make things just to bank more money. this sidekick is perfect for me, I wouldn’t ask for more, the camera will be perfect for this phone. thanks for takin the time and reading all of this!

    I was doubting T-Mobile at first. Now, I think I just fell in love. Only thing that will make things better if T-Mobile stops their 49 cents for roaming. D:

  91. justin fuentes Says:

    I think this sidekick phone should be called the sidekick3G sound really good

  92. Mike Says:

    I like the sounds of it, BUT WTF no Wi-Fi. This is pretty much the sole reason I will get another blackberry over the sidekick. It’s so convenient if you travel a lot to have the WiFi option for those weird places where you don’t get service, but can bum some WiFi and still get ahold of people. Once they set up a WiFi option on this phone then my day will have come.

  93. Nayeem Khan Says:

  102. lozo401 Says:

    this sidekick looks nice. i heard it was gunna be touchscreen and it could be good and bad i dont care either way. i doubt its a slide even though i like my sidekick slide. i wish it had wifi and 3g like the g1 does. i dont care for gps cuz i have a garmin and ringtones cuz im always working so its usually on vibrate. i hope it has movie streaming for youtube and that the apps are free or at least cheap. right now my sidekick slide is always resetting and ill pick this sidekick up first day it comes out

    oh btw the phone in the background of that other g2 pic is the red slide..looks just like mine

    and if you want to take a cheap approach to the rising cost of the data plan, my family has the unlimited family text($20 a month) then you get the cheap internet plan(the g1 has one for $25 unlimited internet with 400 text) and the family texts makes yours unlimited anyway….but it only works if you have a family plan..

    Im so happy right now. I was hoping for a touch screen (t.s.)[since that was really popular on the market] but seeing a sneek peak of the o9 and what it have to offer.. I think imma pass on the Behold or G1. Altho im slightly mad about the o9 not having a T.S. The web browing seem like it gonna be worth it. And streaming videos from youtube is gonna make the overly price blackberry users look shame-ful.
    Muh friend she alway flawnting her BB in my face watchin youtube. But imma be like.. Kaplaaya ya wanna watch a clip together??? 3G style… lolx

    I just hope the release date is before the end of the summer.. [Late july/ early aug] like the o8 did…

    There are two types of features- included and optional. Included features are free and there is usually a fee associated with optional. Myspace is online. Internet is not free. It’s a small fee for all the amazing things a Sidekick can do.

    Then I’ll be happy ;P

    Seriously. with 3G, youtube capabilities, the upgraded screen, high res camera, and all the features packed in from past Sidekicks, this sounds like a winner! I don’t see any reason why it won’t be the greatest thing since sliced ham(mmmmm…pork).

  119. Mike B Says:

    To be honest. (To all people that want touchscreen n other impossible abilites, U all SUCK! U don’t know sh*t! Honestly, I don’t think u can even tell the difference of the brown sidekick lx and poop… Sidekick is what sidekick is. U can’t ask for this and that cos if they have this or that, it wouldn’t be the same so STFU! If u don’t like it, don’t pay attention to this and focus on putting sh*t on ur plate n eat it. Then repeat!

    I am a customer of Tmobile Sidekick since 2002 and im satisfed with what I have. All I want is a better camera but I don’t complain cos I didn’t pay my money for high def camera, I paid good money on the abilities of the sidekick that amazes me everyday. Sure, it doesn’t have 3g (lx) or best camera but don’t complain, other wise, u’ll be sad and sorry for the rest of ur sorry *** life…

    Mike B on January 28, 2009 at 5:31 pm said:

    Personally, I don’t want TOUCH-SCREEN! It mess up the cleanness on the screen so no touch-screen, period. And no threaded texting, cos cmon people, ur asking too much. Back off for a min and let the creative people do the work n all we gonna do is test them out, and if u like it, buy it. If not, then go away n switch to another company cos we don’t really need u, cramping up our style n all, k? Get it, got it, good!

    umm… there better be an option for threaded texting, because i definitely want that – i don’ see why u wouldn’t want it, but if u dont then thats why there should be an option to utilize that feature.

    and NO touch screen! the technology is far from perfect, and i much prefer scrolling through the phone with the scrollball … and the whole reason i love the sidekick is because it is one of the few phones that have a physical keyboard today! NO TOUCHSCREEN!!!!

    Sidekick can do less than many phones out there, you shouldnt even say that. And all those phones offer those extra features beyond what the sidekick can or will ever do for cheap

    Dont go buying a sidekick expecting your gonna get some top of the line phone, or even wifi. Im not no hater or nothin, I want one, but I know the sidekick sucks for the price – and after all these years, there has been barely any improvement when you take into consideration all the time they had. The sidekick 09 will probably not have wifi…

    Sidekick is a TEXTING PHONE. not a smartphone at all. dont expect to do any advanced or semi advanced things at all, the web browser has sucked too, for all these years.

    I want a sidekick, but with tmobile’s $20 per month for unlimited data (last i checked at least… i heard it might be $30, is this true?) its unbleievable. one wonders how they can keep the price so high. the sidekick belongs to verizon, because that is the cheapest service to text on. and then all the verizon phones should go to tmobile cuz they all suck lol

  126. youngbeast77 Says:

    Tha only way I could see a sk havein a touch screen is if u put it whea tha key board is but that would be pointless cuz wuts tha point havein a touch screen if u can only use it 2 type

  127. Nick Brian Walters Says:

    I believe that a sidekick with a touchscreen would open a whole new can of worms. That is the applications on such a device. It would be used for advanced navigation, data entry, etc. Once one begins to incorporate these things the sidekick is no longer a messaging and simple web device but a PDA/Smartphone. I think anyone who looks seriously at the sidekick will see that it IS a messaging and simple web device and that asking for too much out of this device will deform it’s intended use.

    If one wants all the bells and whistles I think the best place to look is in the more advanced business class PDA/Smartphones or ultra small laptops coupled with cell modems.

    Will this sidekick be a perfect solution for the intended audience? quite simply NO…nothing ever is. Is it the best solution for YOU? Maybe….that’s why there are so many products out on the market, because everyone wants different things. If the new sidekick won’t live up to your needs, then perhaps you shouldn’t buy one….but in the end you shouldn’t try to find any old solution and wine about what you want based on the “trendy” options avialable in the market. Do your research, look at the products in a store, think outside the box a little, and I’m sure you’ll find whatever you want…..heck, I know that right now it’s possible to have a 7″ laptop with a touchscreen, a cell modem, and be able to run any old application you want….maybe for all you people that want ALL the options, you should just get a regular old cell phone and one of these ultra small laptops….but wanting everything from a handheld device? It ain’t gonna happen…atleast not for a few years.

    dont buy sidekick 09 its going to have lots of bugs in it and is going to freeze up and its not touch screen and only thing thats better is you can use youtube but your being charged for that by the month 6.99 and you have to buy all ringtones and we all know how bad that sucks IPHONE 3g—-> way better —-> blackberrystorm—>way better——->HTC G1—–> way better so try these other phones out there much better

    I’m not sure about this, as it seems that if they keep their plan prices the same that the monthly charge will be the deal maker for me. Currently I can pick up a sidekick and do a prepaid plan that’ll only cost $38 a month. I havn’t looked as hardcore as I should probably into these other options monthly cost, but the little I have it appears that you have to spend 60+ a month for these others.

    Sidekick isn’t perfect by any stretch of the word, but for someone like myself who wants a qwerty keyboard, web, messaging, texting, and a few other bells and whistles it seems like the best option….I want it for communication mostly, with a dash of web and entertainment.

    Please correct me if I’m wrong about the plan prices, as I myself am all about the money….If 3G ends up at $38 prepaid like the current sidekicks, and there isn’t a better price, I’m stickin to 3G Sidekick.

  131. Huh Says:

    I don’t understand. Why is Pre-paid 38 dollars a month?

  132. chiiinksbaby Says:

    Im about the get the 08′… by the time I decide to upgrade again im sure there will be 3 or more (new)sidekicks to choose from. Nice phone though..im definately not about to spend 4 hundred or more on a phone though. Is it really that serious?

  133. Nick Brian Walters Says:

    Huh on March 21, 2009 at 5:59 pm said:

    I don’t understand. Why is Pre-paid 38 dollars a month?

    I’m not sure what the regular plans run, but that’s just the cost of a sidekick plan with T-mobile. Check out their site in the pre-paid area….they have all the regular pre-paid plans, and then they have one specifically for the sidekick.

    I can’t remember the exact amount but it was something around $450 to get a pre-paid plan that lasts a year until you have to buy more time and includes unlimited Text/E-mail/Web. That of course isn’t unlimited calls, so if you make alot of calls it might not be worth it, but for me, a guy who likes to text and send E-mails, rarely calls people, or has short conversations, and hits alot of websites for info on the go…it’s perfect. I hate having to deal with bills and all that **** to, so buying all of my plan for a whole year is GREAT!

  165. reizo Says:

    desi: yeah u will get it before the release date, anyone who orders after april 30 gets it after

  166. el rep Says:

    ok. so let’s put it this way. This sidekick is not a piece of **** like the other sidekicks that tmobile offers. I know this for a fact… I’ve personally have tested the phone. In fact I fix sidekicks all day… so if you have a sidekick you might have spoken to me! But anyway, The data pkg prices are still the same. If you currently have a SK web pkg that is grandfathered at the rate of $19.99 you will keep that price and if you have the current pkg at $34.99 trust me it’s not going to go up anytime soon or even at all. Now if you don’t want the social networking application bundle on your phone all you have to do is install the app and then uninstall it. That simple… or else you will get the prompt to download the app every 2 hours.

  167. el rep Says:

    oh yeah… retail price is $449… if you are eligible for the horrible partial discount it’s $419… or if you are eligible for upgrade it’s $199 after mail-in rebate for $50. they didn’t want to go touch screen… that was all rumors.

    OK to clear the air on if a data pkg is required…

    The sidekick does not have any virtual memory. the only memory the phone has is the SIM and the SD card. So how it works is when you have a data pkg all your information is stored on the network. So like contact, notes, calendar, photos, etc. will be automatically stored in the danger server. Now if you don’t have a Sidekick data pkg… your phone is going to suck. Basically, if the battery falls out, the phone dies, or resets (sidekicks have a random reset cycle which will automatically reset itself) you will lose all your content because again the phone has no virtual memory and is not stored onto the network.

    The sidekick is a data device. Yes, it requires internet to get on AIM, Yahoo, MSN, and yes as stupid as I may sound surf the web… believe it or not I hear it everyday. and also you must have data pkg to send MMS and access the download catalog.

    I hope that clears the air for you guys.

    lets get something straight….touch screens dont suck, but for this device a touch screen would not be needed though…and touch screen would take away from the original intent of the phone which it to TEXT!!! i dont know about yall, but it can a little bit more difficult to TEXT with a touch screen, and the sidekick was created as a TEXTING DEVICE!!! also, the features seem to be nice also, and glad to see that they added the gps and 3g cause that is really what they were missing. the two colors that it comes in is “archid” and “carbon” which is basically a redish and greyish type colors. also the phone will be a great addition to the sidekick line. definite hit for THE CONSUMERS WHO LIKE TO TEXT!!! if all u want is a touch screen, then get the behold or something. sidekicks are not for you.

    thats whats real…..

But anyway, it doesn’t have mood lights? That fknnn suxx mann. I mean that’s one of the coolest parts of the LX. Making an Lx without the moodlights is like a bed with no matteress -_-
    But anyway the sidekick Lx 2009? Looks like t-mobile is running out of new sidekick names :o
    W.e . Get the original sidekick lx. Muchhh better trust me. Idc if it has 3g or not. Who givess 2 fukks. . . ?

    Seriously, shut up about the touchscreen.

    Sidekicks need to upgrade and keep up with the rest of the world…where’z the touchscreen??

  186. Prospect Says:

    I love sidekicks… have had them for years.. but they are seriously so behind in technology in comparison with the other phones out there. Touch screen honestly isnt necessary but at least have wi-fi capabilities. more available email storage. somethin! Danger is barely keeping up and the only reason why I still have a sidekick is because of the old unlimited data plan for sidekicks and the AIM. best aim out of any other phone out. other than that I couldnt see myself spending hundreds of dollars for this new one. I also own an HTC Tilt which out-dated by the Fuze and the new kick cant even compare to that. I’ll probably buy it out of contract from an outside source somewhere along the line.

    no duuuuuuu

  189. rich Says:

    exactly shut up about the touchscreen. why would u want a touch screen sidekick that defeats the whole purpose of the trackball and it wouldn’t make much sense with interface. if your a fan of the sidekick just go get one, you wont regret it

    sidekick 2009 lx already came out, all my boys say its bangin its raw yada yada, i get it may 25th, my birthday, il drop a comment sayin whats good when i hav 1.

  191. j Says:

    I got rid of my LG Voyager for the Sidekick LX 2009. This new SK is way more up to date in many ways than the Voyager…my SK II was a much better device than Voyager! Touchscreen would be nice for simple functions when device is closed (I’m so used to tapping icons on the screen that I still find myself trying to do it on the SK) but it is not necessary…an on-screen keyboard would be nice for short and quick text but that doesn’t even need to be touch screen. And wi-fi? I don’t get what the big deal about wi-fi is. Unless you live in a place with city-wide wi-fi it’s almost pointless. I don’t know about you but I don’t hang out in coffee houses that much and even so the 3G is plenty fast anyway…unless there was a Skype app to make free calls. Outside of the iPhone, G1 and maybe foreign phones the SK LX 2009 is probably the best thing out there.

    How much is the new Lx??

  194. brian Says:

    i want a sidekick so bad

  195. vanessa Says:

    how much is the sidekick 09?

  196. el Rep Says:

    The no contract price is $449. If you are eligible for a partial discount it’s $419 + $18 upgrade fee. Or if you are eligible for full upgrade then it’s $199 + $18 upgrade fee after rebates. Don’t be dumb and dispute this with me. I work with damn sidekicks all day and advertise the **** out of them.

    Here’s a tip about SK 09:
    Do not plug into surge protector. The phone will heat up.

  197. niko Says:

    i really want this phone

  198. M.I.N.I Says:

    I have that phone it’s really cool i’m on this thru my phone and has good quality i have the Orchid one i paid $449 for it + $18 for upgrade, It’s super cool i reccomend this to everyone and i agree sidekicks are not known for touch screen there known for the swivel screen and keyboard so shut up about the touch screen already !

  199. Gallito Says:

    why is there no wi-fi in the sidekick lx09

    They shoulde put it in there

  200. gerardo Says:

    this ppl siad dat sidekick lx 09 was going to be 449.99 but it was not… that’s BS..there are saling the sidekick lx 09 for 500.99.. put the right info..dont ly to ppl…and t mobile said it was going to be 449.99 but it’s not

  201. MiLAN MINAJ Says:

    Ok I cud have sworn that it was 250 for ppl who wants to upgrade and 300 for ppl who is getting a 2 yr contract and 450 for people who wants it prepaid or to just buy it alone… well I think this is a good sidekick… I have the lx 07′ and love it… I hate the 08 I was going to get it but it looks so cheap and it reminds me of the slide which I had for 1 day and took back… my mom was going to buy me the new lx but I decieded to wait because im turning 18 on june 14 so I want to put it in my name… everything seems to be cool, the only thing I don’t care for is the moodlights strip… they shud have left it the way it was b4… but why are u all sayin you was touch screen.. Nooo that’s not for a kick… and twitter and myspace and facebook apps are great now u don’t have to pay… its good that u can make your own ringtones now as well.. Just google it or go on youtube… a few people have posted directions about it… only thing im waiting for is for someone to tell me step by step how I can make my own themes… I love nicki minaj… she is like my wife I swear she is… she just a bad bi*ch.. Lol… I want her on my theme with songs from her beam me up scotty album… anyway tell me what u guys like about your kicks and what you don’t like…

  204. SillyOme Says:

    Never had a SideKick in my life and when I saw other people with them I thought ok another gadget that lets you contact someone while listening to music. When I saw the Lx2009 I didn’t even know what it was until I went to see it in stores and when that happened I fell in love right away…. It’s like a Mini Pc! It’s amazing just checking the phone out itself! I got mines<<< better go get yours! And Get it Just Cause Not for a Reason!!!!!!!!!!! 1 LIFE! 1 LX2009!

  205. melissa Says:

    one thing I may not like is the size…I like my 08 cause it`s small…lx’s are so W I D E…also the option to change covers n **** is what got me interested in the first place.

    I went to go see it in the store and im stuck on if I wanna stay 08 or upgrade…[ I was actually thinkin about getting a new phone] but I love sidekicks I can’t find anything else to satisfy me..

    for one…sidekicks have the best keyboard hands down ! aim is a great feature as well and the fact sidekick`s know some karate add spice…its not boring like a slide or open or flip…swivel all day baybee !! [im actually writing this on my 08 now hehe]

  208. AshtonKeily Says:

    I dont know! It all sounds so good! So I bought one! I like the fact that this SK doesn’t have the touch screen! I can officially say that I own every sk/hiptop phone now! I work for Versace as a Fashion Designer and I am actually talking to the creators of the SK to actually create my very own line of SK’S! I got some great ideas! Or might just start a new phone company! Who knows! If you all have any ideas email me at ashtonromance@tmail.com

  209. 8o8kiidd Says:

    Hey, I like the new phone. Right now, I have the sidekick’08. Does anyone know the price for the sidekick lx 2009? I’m thinking about asking my parents to buy it for me next year if ever.

    - Thanks.

  210. SillyOme Says:

    To all my sk lovers the new sk lx 09 is going for 250.00 in stores only if you sign up with a contract but if you just want the phone with a prepaid plan (that you can switch over later) it’s 350.00!!!!! It’s a really great phone guys! So far I can make my own ringtones, Make my own themes and enjoy the internet right in the palm of my hands! Im so in love with my new lx 09! You can add apps, music videos, mp3/mp4 etc files, you can even go on youtube to watch the lastest tricks for the new lx09! It’s probably the same tricks for the lx 08 but who cares? there’s no touch screen but hey if you want one just get the G1! That’s my next purchase…… I think I can finally say that I’m a sk junkie and this is my first one ever!!!!!!!!!!! Feel free to comment any questions or info about the lx09!!!!!!! Toodles!
