    OK! .. I think this means that MicroDanger is coming out with a new sidekick by the summer.. Which I dont think its going to be called a sidekick.. knowking how the market is, its going to be called something else. But It will surely be a sidekick replacement. Might have a more grafical more now OS. THIS is goodnews any improvement is good. Probably New marketing would bring new wide range of shoppers for the phone. Maybe .. target Adults? Thats Would be GREat!

    **** I wish I would have waited 6 months…I paid $300. :'(
    I guess that’s life. You win some and you lose some. In this case we’ve been pwn3d by tmobile..again.
    I wonder if a new Sidekick is coming out in the immediate future?

  4. meems Says:

    I still have my sidekick just cause the 19.99 internet but then again I also have the blackberry for the same reason atleast the bb gets updated quicker 🙂 8900 now my 9700 and still on my 09 and i had both colors.. maybe limited edition coming out.. but then again who’d pay 400 for a limited when the regular one is 100 with contract or 200 without..

    Wow so they FINALLY priced it at the Real Value Price it SHOULD have been to start with, lol! These phones are such a rip-off scam (ALL of them from ALL providers) I’m glad I waited. I was laughed at and called stupid for waiting, who’s laughing now, lol!

    you know, i havnt been on this site for a while. i left tmobile after that BS with our sidekick phones. I cant believe i ever had that phone. I cancled my contract and didnt have to pay them the disconnect fee. I have an iphone. best decision i ever made. i feel so smart now, like a guy that didint get BSed in a deal. i cant say iphone is the greatest thing ever, but the phone is a decade ahead of the sidekick, seriously its like your back in 1998 with the SK. i dont care if sidekick made all my dreams come true, i will never turn back to it. it wasnt the phone that gave me problems, i was fine with it with what i had but it was tmobile and microsoft or whatever service we were being delt,,,whoevers to blame, it doesnt matter. think about it people, just go look for a better phone. its like jesus once said…..”seek and you will find”.

    I think its too late for the Sidekick brand to recover. The market is saturated with all sorts of phones with big screens, with or without keyboards. The Nexus One just came out, the Sony Xperia10 is coming, and I heard the Nokia 900 is coming as well, and other are just in the future for T-Mobile! Other companies I’m sure have other nice things coming out.

    My Droid, despite being the “slowest” of the big name phones, blows my LX09 outta the water. Its sad, cause the Sidekick brand served be well for years, but the Sidekick will not recover from the debacle. Thanks Microsoft. You ruined yet another great product. Lucky for you I hate the iPhone and don’t buy into the hype of Apple’s other garbage.

    Sidekicks are stll great,but the best change is android, no phone can compare to the power of android, you can install different phone’s OS, for example right now i have android 2.1 running on my TMobile G1. I Love the g1 even though it looks cheap, the things you can do with it are amazing…

  9. Fez Says:

    A sidekick with Android OS?
    Or sense..

    That’d be awesome.

  10. justin Says:

    I am done with my sidekick Lx 09. Its embarrasing seeing all these little kids with the same phone as me. Next step for me is a Blackberry or a My touch

    I owned every sidekick and they satisified me but never blew me away

  11. ny223 Says:

    Most sidekick users are going straight to the iPhone. I still come to this site to see whats going on but I left SK08 and went to the HTC Touch Pro 2. They need a better Sidekick and QUICK. It’s a sinking boat at the moment. After using the HTC, it makes Sidekick look more like a toy.

  12. eunice Says:

    I’m thinking of updating my phone with T-Mobile. But I want to keep my Sidekick Plan for 19.99. And I’ve been with them even after this whole Sidekick outage. If I can’t keep this old plan, then I think I’ll go with the iphone in a few months and just leave t-mobile.

  13. Droid Does Says:

    Why the iPhone?

    The Droid is practically a Sidekick on steroids.

    And it can multi-task, unlike the iPhone (that is, until you jailbreak it aka void the warrantee)

    And I’ve heard AT&T has very spotty 3g coverage, unless you live in a metropolitian area.

    Also, the Touch Pro 2 or Nokia 900 are solid phones, and you can stay with t-mobile if you wanna.

  14. Anonymous Says:

    I want the speed of the droid anything and everything good in all the new os’s. A good keyboard and the best touch screen and the best app store for the sidekick

  15. Lewminous Says:

    This is just in time…I’ve been planning to leave Verizon all month because I’m tired of the “mysterious” charges & having to call for adjustments all the time. Not to mention every phone we’ve had from them has had restarting issues…I really missed the Sidekick & instead of going to Verizon, I should have just moved to Contract or Flexpay on T-mobile. But I did get my netbook at an awesome price so some good did come out of it, lol.

    A sidekick running Android’s OS will never happen because the Sidekick runs Danger’s OS.

    You can get that. All you have to do is root your phone.

    Besides, Google just release SDK for Android.

    Zman he hack the phone that why u can hack any phone using xda developer that website has all the info step by step to hack from google g1 to motorola droid for future update he probably using beta version of 2.1

    Are the no contract deals still valid? I can’t find it anywhere at Sidekick Shopper.

    How come tmonews has been havin rumors that there will b a mytouch with the sidekick keyboard that will b the next sidekick or it will b replacing it?so here is hope for sidekick with a touch screen and runnin android os fuckers 🙂

  23. meme Says:

    Did anyone else see what mobile facebook says? Go to the bottom of the page on your SK and you’ll see/read, “Download a Facebook bookmark for your Sidekick 5.”
    Could there possibly be a new sidekick coming out or does facebook consider the SK LX09 the Sidekick 5?

  24. ex-slidekick user (lx09) Says:

    The lx09 is the sk5

    Any types of commments will be accepted..oxox

  27. Lewminous Says:

    In order of release: SK3, SKLX, SK08, SKLX09 (There’s also others) I don’t know what you mean by MP, I’m assuming megapixels of the camera. I think the SK3 just has a VGA camera, the SKLX has a 1.3, the SK08 has a 3.0 & the SKLX09 has a 3.2.

    Not sure if you can use it in England. Sorry if some of the info is wrong.

    It goes Sidekick 3, Sidekick LX, then the Sidekick LX 09.

    SK3 is the oldest of the 3. If you can, buy the LX09 because the camera is much better than the LX’s camera.

  29. aries Says:

    thanQ to both of u. I really appreciate that. 🙂

  30. tmobile Says:
