    look stop with the sidekicks until they actually make them right why isnt it touch screen why do they always glitch why do you have to pay for the worst apps when the i phone has tons of free apps that are way better than any app on the sidekick i have owned almost every sidekick the 09 was nice but think about the bang for your buck look at the video on the 09 horrible the video is the size of the average persons thumb nail the i phone is the entire screen why wouldnt they do that for the sidekick the answer is because they make a cheap phone for a very high price lol ill admit the idea of the sidekick is very unique and i like the design but they need to put more money and time into making it a better phone anything a sidekick can do a iphone can do 100x better try to argue that because you know you cant fact is fact

    Also iPhone has over 500 free apps, does the Sidekick have ANY free apps? um, no.

    Can you tether with the Sidekick09? No.

    Can you ever tether with previous Sidekicks? No.

  13. BBane Says:

    I saw a Sidekick LX09 commercial on TV while watching America’s Got Talent. Nice Commercial but different OS screen.

  14. Blex Says:

    Ummm… The iPhone has a landscape keyboard which is way bigger than the sidekicks so you type much much MUCH faster. You have free apps! You can use Wi-Fi! Push Notifications! YouTube videos at full screen HD instead of the sidekicks thumb sized YouTube videos. Fastest 3G network on AT&T. Free ringtones (finally the sk09 has it hahaha but process is too complicated) iPod is on iPhone. FREE weather app. True HTML browsing. More copact size. More IM clients like gChat, ICQ, etc. All of your info gets backed up on a server. Yu cand find your phone if it’s lost or stolen. iPhones have Skype! iPhone 3g waaay cheaper than a big plastic fisher price sidekick. You just can’t possible sit here and argue that the sidekick lx 09 is better than the iPhone. If you do, your mother sells you crack. The iPhone is just way better than this kid phone… Sorry.

    Not better, you are correct. The iPhone is more impressive hardware (besides the LX’s screen). The issue is that the iPhone lovers are failing to realize is that the iPhone is for a different market.

    The iPhone is for the gadget lover, folks who can’t truly use a smartphone, and those that want a phone that has an iPod. Really it is for the same demographic that buys the Mac. They want simple, easy to use, while at the same time paying a ridiculous premium price (while not so much anymore for the device, the monthly is still high).

    The Sidekick is for those that are into messaging and staying in touch, all the time. That’s mainly the reason the phone multitasks as much as it does. True it also appeals to the youth or tween segment and is a lot more “fashionable” than pretty much any phone on the market. The Sidekick user wants simplicity, yet also wants the chaos of having all the messager going at the same time, along with e-mail and texting.

    Yes this phone is overpriced, but the monthly price, even at the “new” price of 35 unlimited is still better than the iPhone, though not as attractive as the old 20 dollar plan.

    I personally have had both phones and can tell you that even though the iPhone has the landscape keyboard, it still isn’t that great. I do like the tech under the iPhone hood, but the touchscreen gets annoying at times. It does make better phone calls. Plus the apps are a lot better.

    The Sidekick while really not that great at calling, beats the iPhone at everything messaging related. That and it just works. True I don’t use a Sidekick anymore (or an iPhone for that matter), but I do miss the keyboard and simplicity of the multitasking.

    Yes there are free apps and there will be tethering on the sidekick 2009 once the application is available. Where is your pic msg iPhone? Where are your full real im apps? Oh wait you have fake ones that dont do as much? I have had both the iPhone and the sidekick and the sidekick is the ****. AT&T is way overypriced for the what you get. Oh wait its $60 a month for unlimted internet and text? I pay $20 for the sidekick.

    We do have official IM applications FYI. And when the sidekick gets tethering, you guys will have to pay $5.99 plus tax and a reccuring fee of 9.89 a month. And hold up, I HAVE picture messaging too. It’san app called quip and all the pictures I send are for free. I even get free texting cause oh wait, there’s an app for that. So for you, where is your 1 minute+ video recording? No where to be found. What about your weather app? Ohh… Weather Undergoubd makes you pay monthly for it. What about the wifi? I can’t find a hotspot… Oh yeah sidekicks don’t have wifi. And not to mention, the tmobile 3g is HORRIBLE. There’s a reason why you pay for what you get. But you pay more for a phone that can’t even do 1/3 of what the iPhone can. I’ve had both the sidekick and iPhone and iPhone eats the sidekick any day. Oh and you can hack the iPhone too… Can’t do that with sidekicks now huh? Any more, Adam?

  18. amber alert Says:

    actually, us sidekick users that only pay the 20 bucks, wont pay that 5.99 ****, and wifi ? who the fock wants to travel around for a spot to get internet when i can just pay to have it ALL the time, not a big deal. AND WE DO HAVE OUR 1 MINUTE OF VIDEO RECORDING. you stupid block of schit. and thats awsome that with your phone you can HACK it….HELLO, who wants their phone being hacked, Nobody, jumpin ***** jesus, give it a rest with these phones, doesnt anyone write a foking post card anymore.

  19. pLaTaNo p0w3r Says:

    the next iphone will have an app that can show you how to stop bickering and bitching and complaining about other people that love to use their sidekick for what it does,like me !, and hey it will probably even be free for you guys, but idc ! I don’t need any of it, it might even wipe you ***, for FREE !! yay

  20. Mike Says:

    Yeah. So basically, Sidekicks suck… Tmobile Internet is slow and sometimes doesn’t even work so wifi would be best to use. I don’t know about you but I can’t even get service in my neighborhood. And amber is such a dummy. She cleary doesn’t know what hacking your iPhone means. Women these days…

  21. Scott Says:

    I want a phone that runs everything at once, seamlessly switches between running applications, handles AIM Yahoo MSN Twitter Facebook etc ALL AT ONCE, navigates freely by key shortcuts between applications, features a full keyboard with usable-size keys, and LASTS ALL DAY ON ONE CHARGE…

    Oh wait, I have one. My SK LX 09 😀

  22. Scott Says:

    I had an iPhone too, for about 3 weeks. When you’re used to the messaging capability of a Sidekick, the iPhone is a serious downgrade. The “apps” everyone raves about are mostly toys. I lost interest and traded it off.

    And if I wanna watch Youtube, I’ll pull out my MACBOOK PRO. That’s correct…I’m a Mac user, and I don’t like iPhone. I like stuff that does the job right.
