T-Mobile Halts Sales of Sidekick Tomorrow

It’s been a good run Danger Sidekick, but T-Mobile says you’re done.

“As T-Mobile looks to further innovate and raise the bar for the next generation of the T-Mobile Sidekick, as of July 2, the Sidekick LX and Sidekick 2008 will no longer be available through T-Mobile, including retail stores, care, telesales and online.”

This doesn’t mean that the Sidekick service will be stopped on July 2nd. T-Mobile hasn’t said anything about the longevity of that. This just means you’ll have to buy a Sidekick elsewhere. But there are hints that the Sidekick line may carry on (at least in name). Everyone’s chattering about this Sidekick Twist, which may be what T-Mobile has up their sleeve.

Oh, and for those that haven’t been following the news elsewhere, the Kin is done for as well.

    Well it sounds like there will be a next gen sidekick according to that statement. That’s great news. The Sidekick is one of their most popular devices. I don’t think they’d abandon it.

  2. catper712 Says:

    Although I will miss Danger, I hope they keep the SK brand going. The phones were always easy to use andx great for the hearing impaired. I’ve never been a fan of touch screen phones (not knocking them, i just prefer a real keyboard). The MyTouch Slide is a great phone. I recently went to it when my LX died. I would love to stay true to the SK line if another comes out though.

  3. Antonio Says:

    So what does this mean for people paying for a protection plan on their sidekick?

    This states their whole statement. Nd it look like there will b a next yen sidekick

  5. Alessandra Says:

    It was a fun run, let’s see what comes out in the coming months.

  6. Anonymous Says:

    Will they at least sell it at a discounted price?

    Or do they use the unsold ones in equipment replacement programs?

    Yup it really was :)
    Nd let’s hope that that emerald project is next right :)

    I think I would want it 2 have A swivel screen

  8. Anon Says:

    The “next gen” sidekick will be a sidekick in name only. Just another android phone. This looks like the final end of the hiptop as we knew it (Danger OS and all). Sad sad day.

    Anyone here really think TMo will let people keep their sidekick data plans after they turn off the backend servers (Keep in mind that the sidekick data service is provided by Danger/MS, so even if TMo has a new device they call the sidekick, the days are numbered for being able to keep using existing devices… I hope it’s a high number, though).

    All I know is I’m going to keep using my Sidekick LX until the day they turn the servers off and after that, if they want to make me get a $30 data plan with whatever new smartphone, I’m going somewhere else (Verizon maybe).

    You’re a butt ****. Flooser. Sidekicks suck. There’s a reason why they’re coming to an end. Nobody buys them anymore. It’s not 2002 anymore. Good riddance. Oh and before you say it numb nuts, I came here to see how upset you loyal sidekick fans were about the news so stfu.

    it’ll always have a place in my heart T_T

    Great Job Microsoft, You Kill Just About Everything You Touch..

  20. AG Says:

    I moved on from my Sidekick after the Great Data Disaster, but I still have fond memories of the greatest phone/mobile data device of its era. Dropped by to say goodbye and to thank Hiptop3 for years of terrific coverage.

  21. Michael Giron Says:

    Well this is the end of the road guys :[ I’ve had the sidekick 3, sidekick iD, sidekick LX, sidekick 2008, sidekick LX 2009 and it was truly the pioneer of smartphones. The FIRST phone to feature an app store (Download Catalog), the best IM services, and the best all around device. Sidekick you’re missed, i now have a blackberry but as soon as a new sidekick drops and it delivers WITH a swiveling screen then i’ll kick the bberry to the curb. Dropping by as well to say goodbye and thank Hiptop3 for all the great coverage <3

  22. Andrew Says:

    So….it’s July 2nd and the sidekick lx is still available on tmobile.com……um…..

  23. LoSo Says:

    im laughin at all these people saying “goodbye” when you guys will be drooling when the new device comes out and will be stuck in your plans..

  24. Some Guy Says:

    Why laugh? There’s a newer, better android device coming out for one carrier or another every couple of months, at least. You’ll ALWAYS have a “I could have gotten X if I waited a few more months” situation.

    Now, I’m not saying the Sidekick Twist won’t be a cool android phone, but as far as the “Sidekick” part of it goes, it’ll only be carrying the name because T-Mobile wants to leverage the name brand and to get their sidekick user base to stick with them instead of moving to another carrier (which I suspect a lot of people will do, anyways, once T-Mobile finally lets the Danger/MS ran backend servers get shut down).

    Without the real sidekick, the only reason I’d stick with TMo is because of my grandfathered data and phone plans.

  25. Anonymous Says:

    Praise Kwanzaa for new sidekicks!

    I would really be pissed if my pre paid data plan were shut down now. im still using an LX (07).

  32. xanglx Says:

    only hipsters, and scene kids still use sidekicks. time to grow up and get a big boy phone people. the SK has been dead for quite sometime. i’m glad to be finally done with t-mobile, and their sorry selection of “smart phones”. they’re all mid-range devices, with nothing to offer. their best phone right now is the mytouch slide, and it sucks.

    The HTC Emerald, which conjures up ideas of our first leaked Project Emerald story is slated for November 5th.

    Yea sorry reasonable mistake sorry I’m not as perfect as you princess

  52. Alessandra Says:

    @Cool: Don’t worry about it. :)

  53. Cool Says:

    @alessandra:Lolz w.e wat do you think bout this project emerald thing?

  54. Alessandra Says:

    @Cool: It’s cool but let’s wait and see what it will look like.

  55. Cool Says:

    @alessandra: I hope it’ll have the swivel :)nd a 5-row keyboard

  56. Alessandra Says:

    @Cool: Me too, 4 rows are just too small for me

  57. Cool Says:

    @Alessandra:Yea nd I think the kins were a big failure I jus read they only sold 503 in total…..do you own a sidekick?

  58. Alessandra Says:

    @Cool: Yes I do own a Sidekick, and I knew that the Kins were going to fail when I saw the commercials lol, one showed that the the guy’s girlfriend wanted him to stop doing what he was doing with his kin and she looked so bored.

  59. Cool Says:

    @Alessandra lolz yea I’ve seen that commercial nd you are soooo right lolz…. Which kick you have?

  60. Alessandra Says:

    @Cool: I own a Sidekick 2, 3, and ’08. That was like the most stupidest commercial ever.

  61. Cool Says:

    @Alessandra yea it really was….I’m gettin excited with all these specs they are claiming for the sidekick I hope it’s all true

  62. Alessandra Says:

    @Cool: The specs are cool the only thing I will miss is the Danger backend server, that’s something this new Sidekick won’t have since it will be Google based.

  63. Cool Says:

    @alessandra : I’m kinda dumb sorry :( so by the danger backend server you would mean the os right? Nd do you like android os phones ?

  64. Alessandra Says:

    @Cool: Not just the OS but the backend server the way it syncs with our stuff, I don’t know how that works with Android. I never tried an Android phone, the only other phone that I have tried aside from a Sidekick is the iPhone.

  65. Cool Says:

    @Alessandra ooooo I’ve tried the mytouch slide it’s os is pretty cool with a lot of apps…..how you like the iPhone?

  66. Alessandra Says:

    @Cool: The iPhone is pretty cool, it’s not mine though it’s my mother’s and boy I have to say she’s overly spoiled by her iPhone! I am too but not as much as her since it’s not mine, she has last year’s model which is the 3GS. The only thing I really like doing that I never get tired of doing on an iPhone or iPod Touch is making the icons shake lol everytime I make them shake I just say that Apple likes making earthquakes lol so far Apple has had alot of bad news so I tend to stay away from their products until they get it right.

  67. cool Says:

    @Alessandra:I’m still”cool” ok lolz……..interesting lolz……bad news such as?Nd it’s nice to talk to a girl about phone thts different ?lolz
    Nd sorry bot the wait my ipod isnt loadin the submit comment button lolz is there any other way we can talk?

    @YouTune: lol cute sure we can talk another way you can e-mail me if you want to. sweetpeachesster[at]gmail.com I put the @ like that so bots don’t catch my e-mail address. :)

  70. Alessandra Says:

    @YouTune: As for the bad news, it’s mostly with the iPhone 4 and the reception problem. Apple would have to redesign the entire phone instead of people wasting an extra $30 to cover that one part of the phone which kills your signal if your skin touches it.

  71. Cool Says:

    @Alessandra lolz ok I’ll write to you :)

  72. LoSo Says:

    hey cool thats MY girl you are talking to >:(! but yea i didn’t notice the emerald was on the road map i was hoping it was..good thing you guys and gals pointed it out!i just hope it isn’t the one htc vision that was leaked..i wasn’t too excited by it..a lot of htc’s slide phone all seem to resemble the same phones…

    I think the vision is the other htc vanguard(I think)

  75. Alessandra Says:

    @guys,: Who is busted?

    LoSo: I know that most HTC phones resemble alot of phones that just basically slide out. This new HTC phone better have a different way of opening it, sliding out is alittle too common already and it’s getting old.

  76. LoSo Says:

    @ Alessa

    Yeah I agree..and the fact that’s its only a 4 row keypad…and the phone itself is just blah…but if the “sidekick” isn’t slated ti’ll Nov. I highly doubt its the vision and probably a whole other device..I know phones get leaked..but there’s still PLENTY of time ti’ll Nov. So I’m not really worried…hmmm..I wonder where Magnus has been?

  77. Alessandra Says:

    @LoSo: Alot of phones that are slide outs have 4-row and just to clear the air here how come you said I’m your girl? I don’t even know you.

    I”m still an adult…And still have my sidekick. I love the phone. I might not use all the services like before. But the keyboard is what keeps me around. It took me 3 years to find a phone. My problem then is still the same problem now. My fingers are just too big. Touch screen’s don’t work and blackberry’s have never worked for me. I mean could write my papers while mobile on my sidekick. I don’t see another phone on the market that will workout for me.

    I was thinking about going over to the Droid X for Verizon. But its all touch…

    anyone been having spotty service??i stay losing service asnd only get 1 or 2 dancing dots and i’ll have to turn airplane mode on then off for me to get service…its been acting up and getting quite annoying..

  102. Alessandra Says:

    LoSo: I have noticed that ALOT with my Sidekick, however my service was cut off for 3 days I had to call Customer Service to fix it because no matter what reset I did, I couldn’t get it back, calling Customer Service brought it back for me but it’s been acting up again, it drives me nuts but I’m patient.

  103. AceKannon Says:

    Mine has been acting this way so much lately its crazy. Like:

    I’ll be on the net or texting and my service drops. At times it may even say the sim card isn’t inserted ( SIM…?…SIM..?..). Or I get full bars with the “7” but no “G”, just phone logo in its place and my phone says “emergency calls only”.
    Then after multiple resets, its back to normal.

    Anyone elses service problems been any similar to mine?

  104. Alessandra Says:

    AceKannon: I have experienced it myself too and I know we’re not the only ones.

  105. AceKannon Says:

    Atleast im not alone. Maybe its Micro$hit messing with our Danger servers again!!

  106. Alessandra Says:

    AceKannon: I doubt that’s the case since we are the last carrier to even have Sidekicks, no where else around the globe offers the Sidekick service anymore.

    I have been kicking since the color, and I’ve noticed that everyime a new sidekick comes out, the one being replced acts bonkers….bonkers to the point that it needs to be replced…..bonkers to the point that you don’t wanna replace with the same model, but with the newer one. And since there is no new model to speak of, just yet, I think its t-mobile or danger saying switch to another phone. Maybe its a sign that the twist is near. I swear its not a coincidence. This happened with every kick I’ve had, as well as a few friends that kicked with me. I think danger used to do it to get the new phones sold at a much higher pace

    Oh, and I nearly forgot: its worth mentioning that the problems are usually one of two, that appear.
    1)sim card read, data issues, (regardless of age of sim)
    & the less usual
    2)SOD, glitchy system issues

    I’ve seemed to notice this too. My sidekick 3 did the same, so did my slide (WORST MODEL EVER!), and now my LX is acting like it has a horrible case of down syndrome. Its crazy cuz this started like a month ago. My sidekick had terrible service for about 3 weeks in places where I normally would get all 5 bars and the “G7″. Now service goes in and out.

    I hope the Sidekick Twist comes out soon. I want it to have the swivel screen SO BADLY! A slide would be cool, but it won’t feel the same.

    Its not a sidekick. Lol, that’s what it is. It looks like a second generation at&t quickfire, both of which resemble the sidekick slide.

    BUT, we all know this is not anything closely related to project emerald.

    A little back-to-the-topic:

    What mite this do to our data plans since htc is making this phone and its running android os, and not danger os? Would our sidekick twist be fully compatible with our android phone? Will it have the 5 row, spaced out keyboard? Will it have its superb email, social, and networking capabilities? And WILL IT HAVE THE SWIVEL SCREEN?

    On the roadmap that was leaked couple weeks ago there was 3 htc phone vangaurd emerald and shubert vanguard and emerald android phones and shubert windows 7 android spin posted that htc taking out 3 htc phone for tmobile and 1 for AT&T and 2 for Europe they said 6 htc phones by the end of q4 so this kindof get closer to confirmation here take a look and tell me wat ya think? :http://androidspin.com/2010/07/15/8-5-million-devices-could-be-shipped-by-htc-in-q4/

    I believe this list is legit. And remember back a month ago when people thought this was the Galaxy S? I never lost hope. Plus that post when tmo said they are working on the “next iteration of the sidekick franchise” pretty much is as much confirmation as we need right now. All we need is a picture of the phone. The HTC Vanguard is nothing in comparison to the HTC Emerald….have u seen the pictures? The screen is 3.7 inches and it has a 4 row keyboard. No front facing camera, no gingerbread, and it resembles the mytouch slide.

    HTC Emerald is gonna be a powerhouse of a beast.

    Well I can’t even front, the 4g Evo is a great phone. But what I noticed is its just Sprint’s version of the HTC HD2 on Tmobile. Now imagine a phone like that with sidekick branding and a swivel screen and a superb qwerty. It would be the best phone ever created, based on its tech and it would put T Mobile and the Sidekick label back on top. Just like the original in 03′ :)

    Nah the vision is the vanguard funded to come out on sept

  129. AceKannon Says:

    Right now its the Galaxy S vs whatever else….but one thing I noticed in the commercial wuz kinda odd, if sum didn’t know it already:

    When the front of the phone is shown, then it has a picture of the Samsung “Galaxy S” logo, at the bottom of the screen is T-Mobile listed as a certified carrier. We knew this was for sure because a lot of people thought it was project emerald. BUT….

    Did anyone notice that Sprint was listed as a carrier also? This basically makes Emerald the Twist bacause of speculation…..if a lot of people don’t remember, people either said that the phone wuz an HTC handset running Android, or the Galaxy S. Now the Galaxy S is out and there’s still no sign of Emerald. Along with the oncoming hints dropped by T-Mobile being backed by months of speculation, the Sidekick Twist is becoming a reality.

    Oh, and if anyone payed attention to Sharp’s new handset, the FX….I found it odd that its named AND modeled EXTREMELY closely after Sidekick and the Sidekick “LX”…(LX=FX). Doesn’t it look like a Sidekick Slide or a small 1st gen midnight blue LX?

    if u google sidekick twist or project emerald and look at different forums, some people were saying that the twist is the galaxy s, which is now false. But still, now since we know that the HTC Vanguard is the Vision supposedly, now all we need, or want, is Emerald. Quite frankly, I believe we’re gonna receive our first look at this phone before August.

    Hey, did sumbody make a group about my sidekick twist concept on facebook? I recently joined it, because when I looked up sidekick twist, I strangely found that ^~^
    This is what came up:

    “HTC Sidekick Twist Concept 5 image by AceKannon2010 on Photobucket

    2 people like this.”

    Somebody loved my concept that much to create a group of it!!

    You guys should add me if u have Facebook’s too.

    Is anyone having horribly slow service on aim for the LX09?

  141. Alessandra Says:

    LoSo: I’m noticing that responses from AIM on the Sidekick seem to come in doubles when I’m on my laptop. I also notice that my signal is always LOW since the Sidekick has been discontinued from T-Mobile.

  142. Dr. Dr. Says:

    I just got an OTA update a couple days ago on my SK LX09 that said it’s going to improve my 3G speeds, but I haven’t noticed any differences.

    Anyone know anything about it?

  143. LoSo Says:

    no one won’t really know anything…if anything aim is working like **** for me…like when i sign in only 4 poeple or so are signed in..then SLOWLY people starting signing in 1 by 1..its rather annoying…i sent myself a message on my itouch and got it a good minute later and this is WITH 3G and FULL bars…its rather ridiculous…and i keep getting system messages saying someone is signed under my name..i changed my password and im still getting the same thing…but it happends to be the aim on the sidekick itself because when im the only one on the cpu it works great…its sad how they seem to downgrade the servers on the sidekick ever since they took it off tmobile…come onnnnnn sidekick twist..

  144. maricela Says:

    Yeah my sidekick b messing up too.I have a sidekick lx 09..too many drop calls,text messages not being sent, too slow loading up internet pages..sometimes it takes about 3 minutes to load up a page,and I got an update too..and it seems my phone got even slower than before..I wanna get a new phone..even though I love my sidekick…

  145. maricela Says:

    Oooopps sorry I put the same message twice..

  146. AceKannon Says:

    Has anyone elses Facebook app been acting up? When I tried to log in, it took forever then caused my phone to lose signal and say “SIM?”. When I clicked cancel, signal came back 5 mins later. And my AIM is Very, VERY slow too. When I try to enter a room, certain group rooms don’t come up.

    Well damn, I guess u think ur some kinda boss, eh? If u actually used one, u would know that sidekicks carry the best keyboard setup on any cell phone to date. That’s not a fanboy line, its been proven since 2003. It has unmatched i.m. and email capabilities. And the multitasking has yet to be beaten. I bet u still have a flip phone…..a 1st gen motorola razr…..d.I.ckhead……its a shame too.

    IF U DON’T LIKE THE PHONE, WHY COME HERE AND TALK ABOUT IT??

    Do us all a HUGE favor….and play treasure hunt in a house fire….mite do ur retarded a$s some good.

    I’ll give u that one, but….

    I have more than just a sidekick. I have a Sidekick LX 07, an HTC HD2, and iPhone 3G and a G1. So basically u look VERY VERY dumb trying to call me cheap when the Nexus One is outdated in its own right. So, next time u call sumbody cheap, ask em HOW many phones a person owns. Cuz quite frankly, that bull$hit nexus one is a$s compared to my HD2.

    Oh, and Cool? He doesn’t need to answer if he doesn’t want to….im not on his nuts.

    Im just stating facts. U know this new phone is gonna be the strongest phone available. Ur just mad its gonna be labeled as “Sidekick”

  153. Glasses101 Says:

    hahaha Ace ur killing me man HTC HD2 is windows so i know thas trash, i had the g1 nothing special ther, never had the iphone but im guessin its running EDGE or am i wrong, so service is not fast enough, unless ur using AT&t , but ima take a guess n say u unlocked it wit tmobil, n the nexus is on the same level as any other smartphone thas out, come on now, they drop android phones like it nothin nowadays, wit minor updates, all u can say is the screen is bigger, n ill amit the sidekic had a nice keyboard, ultimate texting phones, the new one is going to be late, only the 7hardcore fans on this site will pic it up, so ill pass, but i wanna see it tho.

    Don’t you think thats a little missed up that T-Moblie can just take the name sidekick and slap it on to any new phone that comes out. Even if it has not to do with the way the old sidekick worked.

    I will probably be down with this phone. If they keep the keyboard as is. I don’t care if they change the OS. But the keyboard is very “key” for me lol. If T-Mobile throws the name on to any phone. I will be moving on. I don’t know where yet.

    Andriod Os would be a upgrade. But it has to have the similar feature to the Danger OS. Especially like the “jump button”.

    Man, if it has no swivel screen, it’ll be strange looking at basically a “Sidekick” branded Droid X.

    If it doesn’t have a 5 row keyboard, it’ll fail as a sidekick, even if its a spiritual successor by the same name. The 5 row is what made this phone legendary.

    Oh, and the Danger OS? I STILL THINK IF IT RUNS ANDROID 3 GINGERBREAD, CREATE A CUSTOM OVERLAY THAT HAS A DIAL ROLLER ON TOP OF THE MAIN TOUCH SCREEN.

  175. LoSo Says:

    yea i agree with you Ace..it should be one of the first phones coming out with 3.0 but there hasn’t been much news regarding that os yet..so it still a ways off as 2.2 is the only thing talked about..but hey i couldve swore they said 3.0 was going to get rid of the custom UI that moto and htc have been using…there was a few articles about it..

    They did say it was geting 3.0. At this point, everything is golden: the specs are damn near perfect and the hype is here simply because……well, its going to (supposedly) be a sidekick!!! Id just love to see exactly what the formfactor will be like. No swivel screen, 5 row keyboard, no go…cuz telin u the truth, even if its a 3.9 or 4 inch screen, I’ll be happy. That’s actually big enough for anyone.

  177. AceKannon Says:

    Oh, and just for screen size reference, the psp has a 4.3 inch screen. So basically imagine a sidekick with a psp screen. U can definitely make that swivel with no problem.

  178. LoSo Says:

    yea now that i think about it ..its definately gonna be a looker…i would never hold a phone like that on my belt..it will be in my pocket ALWAYS!hopefully it can have a good d pad so i can play emulators on it..thats why i love andriod!..i wonder if the guy that worked on danger has anything to say with this phone since he started andriod and now andriod will be running on the new sk..anyone think so?

    Hey guys.. I went on my LX09 today after 2 weeks of not using it (Cause it started to go slow like you guys been talking about) So I just read like everything from my tmail right now… Well I just gotta say I love the sidekick and all but I stopped and started using my iPhone 3G and my cliq on android 2.1 Android is not that bad guys, it has jump shortcuts like the sidekick (if you have an android phone w/keyboard) and mulitasking is alright.. Id like to keep my sidekick cause the keyboard and Aim really is the best, but lately aim sucks on the sidekick too.. I’m not hating on the the sidekick at all.. It’s just really microshit tht fucked everything up I’m still rollin on the grandfathered unlimited sk plan so I don’t have full fuctionality on my cliq just some stuffs works using the sk apn..

    SO yeah just saying.. Try android, its really the best replacement for the sidekick for now.. I went back on my sidekick today cause I miss it.. but I don’t think I’ll be lasting long cause the browser is just really slow which suckss :/

    I second that! LoL My sidekick has been working pretty well. I don’t use aim as much as I use to. But I do a lot of emailing and texting
    from my phone. Even as you read this. I’m posting from my sidekick lol.
    But basically at this point. I’m waiting to see what tmobile dos with the sidekick name. ****** phone would most likely mean I’m moving on.

  188. LoSo Says:

    yea after trhe earlier weeks..my sidekick has been running pretty good….supposedly project emerald isn’t associated with the sk now?! so is it going to come out or what!

  189. AceKannon Says:

    I heard about that too. Once news about the Glacier started to surface, rumors of the Emerald/Sidekick Twist combo began to die. I guess it may just be a “spiritual, branded” Sidekick device instead of a next generation phone.

    I mean, hey, im all in for a beast-spec, ****, BIG BIG HUGE screened HTC device. And if u read the article above, they basically do say there’s a “nextgen sidekick coming” right from the mouths….um….fingertips……..uh..computers of T-Mobile themselves. Of course not in those exact words but just read it over.

    I don’t think TMo would lie to us, considering two things-
    1. The Sidekick line is one of the most popular devices in cell phone history( no lie). Why abandon a cash cow with more potential for it on a new OS?

    And

    2. One of the main creators of the Sidekicks UI, Andy Rubin, started the Android format. That’s a double deal seeing as how he would be reunited with a device he basically made famous, and seeing as how rapidly the Android UI is picking up, he could design a One-Of-A-Kind Android OS for this Sidekick. It would be a deal.

    Then price it at about $379-$400…..phone would be a killer :)

  190. LoSo Says:

    yea i always thought of them making a “one of a kind” OS OR UI for the new sk..who knows?? but like tmo said that there would be a new one in the future..so i guess if it’s the emerald or not i think it doesn’t matter as there’s a new device still coming out regardless we just don’t know what it will be yet!..hopefully it’s soon! c’mon andriod,HTC,Andy Rubin…surprise us!

    When I was in T-Mobile this afternoon upgrading from LX 2009 to Samsung Vibrant, I asked what happened to the Sidekick line. The sales associate said that ‘as of now, it’s gone, but there are rumors of an android-powered sidekick.’

    I waited all summer for news about this ‘android-powered sidekick’, and, suprisingly (not really), nothing new. So I finally went and got the Vibrant, aha. It is actually a pretty amazing phone, i recommend getting it if your contract is up soon.

    Sidekick is dead. The amazing generation of phones has come to an end.

    umm to each his own anthony…but i’ll continue to wait..if you haven’t been checking up it has already been said that it got pushed back to sometime next year…

    so the sidekick twist was a bust?

    I had a tough tie transitioning to the iPhone but let me tell you all.. It is all worth it. Yeah the edge network isn’t fast but being able to fully access any website justifies it all. I’m on wifi the majority of the time anyways. Guys, let go of your sidekick and buy an iPhone. Well worth every penny.

    yep its dead

    Not to be a troll or anything.. But I got the iPhone 3G along with my CLIQ and LX09 now… and if you’re gonna leave the Sidekick.. Move to an android, cause the iphone will just disapoint you. Its the worst phone in the world, its a good multimedia device, but not a good phone. Its great for games.. But that’s what’s the iPods for.. If you want a real phone, go for android.

    Thinking of selling my iPhone tho anyone interested? x)

    Hey ppl, im not sure how to take this, because I wuznt able to actualy reach the page but this intrigued the LIVING **** OUTTA ME!!:

    A couple hours ago, I googled “Sidekick LX 2009″ since im in love with that phones overall design, just to get a look. The first result on google came up as the Sidekick link on T-mobile’s home site. So I clicked it. Sadly it didn’t fully load the whole page, but at the bottom I seen a little bar that made me stop nd relook. It said (AND I QUOTE) , “WE ARE INNOVATING!…..changes are coming to Sidekick. Read the forums for more information”. At first this made me jump for joy since a lot of sites confirmed any sidekick projects were pushed back till next year.

    AGAIN, I was not able to pull up the tab, so anybody that is also very curious, please go snoop around nd tell us what u could possibly find.

    hey everybody….

    remember Microsoft Kin 1 and Kin 2? it’s only sell for 6 weeks and then stop last summer… almost same day sidekick stop to product..

    here click below

    http://www.phonedog.com/2010/11/12/kin-one-and-kin-two-making-their-grand-return-to-verizon/

    it’s return by Verizon!!

    likely Sidekick will coming 2011!

  219. AceKannon Says:

    Hmmm…somethimg makes me believe that Danger and T-Mobile are stirrin’ up a lil trouble again, but in a good way.
    1st off,
    Q. Why in HELL would Danger bring back the Kin phones?
    A. To appeal to audiences that they didn’t reach before, the teens and adults who don’t wanna pay for data plans. THAT’S THE BIGGIE FOR VERIZON!

    2nd, Remember on the forum above, they said that the “Sidekick Project was pushed back to 2011″? This is another eye-opener. The Android platform came from the Sidekick OS at its base, so seeing Android on a high-end Sidekick device actually wouldn’t be wrong. Its almost 2011 anyway nd I believe that we should be hearing info on this device soon. If it resembles any of the HTC “Brick” phones such as the HD2 or Evo, I don’t want it. Sidekicks have 5 Row Keyboards and Swivel Screens. Even a slide would work! Just no full touch screen! AND, as long as they make the OS flexible and as fast as the Sidekick OS was.

    The sidekick will make a glorious return, and when it does I’ll be first in line to receive mine. But one thing is still on my mind: Are they sticking with the HTC Twist/Sidekick Twist name or is that a fanmade codename?

    Has anyone seen the Nokia N8? Its really cool nd all…..nd i know this may seem a little Sidekick Fanboy-ish, but if you look at it, does it not look like the screen should swivel out to reveal a qwerty? Just google it nd click on the first or secomd link, then watch the video….it looks as if the guy is almost ready to slide up the screen :) SIDEKICK MEMORIES!!! Hopefully T-Mo isnt f’in’ around with us. I may get an HTC HD7 this week for christmas, but i’m keeping my fingers,toes and pretzels crossed for this bad boy of a sidekick beast!

    yeah I agree w/ you about HD 7…. look almost same as sidekick but there is no Android… HD 7 come with Windows 7 which are suck…

    if HD 7 come w/ Android, I would buy it…

  226. Alessandra Says:

    @Magnus: Uh..no the HTC HD7 does NOT look ANYTHING like the Sidekick, you misunderstood the previous user he says “I may get an HTC HD7 this week for Christmas, BUT I’m keeping my fingers, toes and pretzels crossed for this bad boy of a Sidekick beast” where he says “Sidekick Beast” he’s referring to the hope of the rumored HTC Sidekick Twist. You need to read alittle more carefully before you post.

    Lol Yea, it was a lil odd how u misread that. BUT, like i said before, that Nokia N8 looks slightly reminiscent of a Sidekick 2008 if u look close enuff….thats beside the point. THE POINT BEING…..that this device will be top notch regardless of what many will think. I just want to know what it’ll look like :)

    P.S. – I may just get an HD2 and jailbreak it to run Android, cuz it is possible…ANYTHING is possible ;)

  228. Alessandra Says:

    Ace Kannon: Yeah I’ve seen the Nokia N8 which runs MeeGo I believe, the device itself does look like the ’08 but much slimmer and it has 4 rows instead of 5 on the keyboard, I’m a proud owner of an HTC HD2 and I run Android on it, the HD7 looks nice but it’s not hacked to run Android yet oh well lol but I love my HD2 I get the best of both worlds and if my Android friends have an issue getting somewhere I just boot into Android and try to help out the best I can, what’s stupid about the Stock Android (the ones with a Stock ROM which aren’t rooted) they can’t have programs for screenshots I saw the market place, all of them there say your Android must be rooted to use it, I feel that, that is very stupid because for WindowsMobile 6.5 on the HD2 you don’t need to hack it to allow screenshots jeez. But at the most I stay running on Windows Mobile using a custom ROM, Android is nice but if it freezes on you, you have to pull out your battery and put it back in, boot into Windows, and then Android lol

  229. AceKannon Says:

    Ok so i didnt get the HD2 for Christmas :( or the HD7 but I WANT THE NEW SIDEKICK! Lol idoesnt matter how long it takes to manufacture the damn thing, just give us some info on it, like um…idk…the FORM AND SHAPE!
