Sidekick LX 2009 OTA Rolling Out

Mobile Backup

I woke up this morning to several reports from people saying they had gotten an OTA for their Sidekick LX 2009. It’s looking like this update is a combination of the bug fix OTA I mentioned awhile back and the new Mobile Backup support. You should hopefully see less crashes in your Sidekick LX 2009 once this update is applied. The OTA may cause your device to hard reset. Don’t freak out though, all your data should be backed up to Danger’s servers, so it’ll come back. And once you have Mobile Backup, your address book will be backed up to T-Mobile’s servers as well! Hooray for backup!

For those hardcore geeks, the new OS version is 5.0/270115. A couple more screenshots:

    The problem is that if ya’ll have a sidekick lx 09 and still experincing problems with contacts and txts that means u need a new sim card…everything will come back to normal thats the same thing i did with mines after i talked to someone from the t-mobile sidekick department not no damn customer care

    mobile backup SUCKS this was a fcking HORRIBLE idea tmobile. woww. it seems like everytime i make a change on my address book i have to do it from the computer. and i get contacts back that i deleted already. annoying much? and when i try to sync it, nothing happens. the sync “times out” EVERYTIME. i hate you i hate you i hate you

    I just bought my sidekick lx09, now im reading all over the place that sidekicks are dead/dying, this thing doesn’t even play video and I can’t use a mp3 as a ringtone, and I cnat set custom backgrounds (other than downloading from the tmobile store), im seriously regreting buying this.
