    It doesn’t seem to work for me. When I go and try to send picture texts I get the message that it cannot be sent. Anyone else have this problem?? And I read somewhere where someone said that tmobile will have a new plan that you will have to switch to in order to send picture texts. Something that you need it to support MMS? Anyone heard of this?? I called tmobile and they were useless. She couldn’t find any information on it at all!

    So I guess I answered my own question by searching online. I found this:

    “In addition to changing the price point from $20 to $19.99 (yeah, we’re serious), the company is also set to include unlimited MMS. Sure, it sounds like a feature that should have been added years ago, but keep in mind that the upcoming Sidekick Slide and Sidekick LX are the first handsets in the Sidekick family to be MMS-capable. Any new customers that buy an LX or Slide out of the gate will be automatically placed on the new Sidekick plan, but existing Sidekick users that upgrade devices will have to manually migrate to the new add-on. “

    I got the Midnight Blue. I have a question… I read the manual and I saw the step on how to record your own ringtone, however, I still have no idea how to. It says…
    You may have the option to record a new ringtone. Recorded ringtones are saved to the Imported category.

    Record a New Ringtone

    1. From any ringtone selector, select Record New Ringtone.

    2. The Stand By dialog box appears. To begin your recording select the Start Recording button or press the LEFT SHOULDER button.

    3. While recording, you can CANCEL , Pause/Resume , or Stop Recording . When finished, select Stop Recording.

    4. The Recorded dialog box appears. From this dialog box you can review your recording by selecting one of the transport controls: play from beginning, play/pause, reverse fast, fast forward. You can also CANCEL the recording altogether or Re-record .

    5. Once you select Done , you are prompted to name your new ringtone. Type a name in the text field, then select Save .

    6. You can now select this new ringtone from any of the ringtone selectors in any of the applications. Look for your new ringtone in the Imported category.

    Note: If you already have 10 ringtones in your Imported category, then you will be prompted to discard one of your existing imported ringtones.

    First of all… what’s the ringtone selector? Can anyone help me figure it out. Thank you.
