Twitter and Facebook available for Older Sidekicks

sklx2009_orchid_closed_facebook

Don’t have a Sidekick LX 2009 yet and you’re stuck with an older device? Well if you’re a Twitter or Facebook addict, you’re in luck! T-Mobile has released the Twitter and Facebooks apps in the Download Catalog for the Sidekick 2008, the original LX, and the Sidekick Slide. The Facebook app is totally free, but the Twitter app will set you back $1.99 every month. Both of these apps will remain free for the Sidekick LX 2009 users though.

    DL’d the facebook app, doubt they might fix it but it causes all kinds of hell to the jump screen, empty bubbles and icons flying away.

    Its actually kinda funny to look at

  7. slidekick user Says:

    And whatever update they slid in to the phone OS screwed it all to hell, half my settings and information got lost. All my bookmarks and saved messages gone.
    And all I got was new microsoft branded defaults in the browser app

    Ordered the LX09.

    sorry guys. i feel like im leaving a part of myself behind. i have been posting here for a while. i got into beefs, made friends, exchanged tips and tricks and some hacks and stuff on here. now its all comeing to an end. my sidekick lx 09 that i got the first week it came out has caused me so much trouble and has been lacking in features. i have a home theatre pc at home and this android phone will let me control the computer with the phone using its touch screen as a touch pad! i need that kind of functionality in my life! i really cant show up to another meeting with a sidekick. at the office i get looked at funny for having a sidekick in the meetings. when everybody is putting their phones on the desk and connecting to the wifi in here i pull out my trusty kick and look at it. these dudes pull out htc touch phones. palm pre, iphones, black berries, really cool nokia devices. these dudes come to work with work tools and i have a toy in my pocket. so here it goes guys… i loved it here while it lasted. i been rocking with sidekicks since the sidekick 2. i have had one sk2, 3 sk3’s, 2 sklx’s and im exiting after the microsoft takeover with a sklx09. wish me luck with the tmobile mytouch guys. im going to hang with the big boys now. sorry guys

    I feel you. I recently jumped ship and went to the BB family full time (I had one for work already). I also have an unlocked iPhone that I switch out with it every once in a while when I know I’ll be needing “entertainment” over business.

    Honestly, for a social device it doesn’t communicate very well anymore. The Danger service had been and continues to be really crappy with it erasing the data on the phone. Not only that, but the so called exclusive apps (Facebook and Twitter specifically) don’t even update correctly. It was faster and more accurate using it through the browser.

    I was more than happy with the form factor though despite the weird looks, but it doesn’t the power under the hood to keep up with the big boys.

    Oddly, there is a huge push on the T-Mob for this device now, but I think it will lose a lot of it’s thunder when the Cliq drops.

    While I persnally have zero interest in Android, that phone looks like it won’t need to be customized to work properly for what I want. Oddly, T-Mobile will have a better communication device that looks to be their flagship device. I am curious how they are going to market it since the Cliq is essentially a Sidekick with a better interface and lack of the swivel screen.

    Ok, I have a sidekick lx 07 and I’m ok with it. The only thing I can say is that it is boring that’s all. I like it because you can get to everything fast…THE JUMPSHORTCUTS…is there any phone that has that really, its so fast, and not those iphones where you touch and its there cause those don’t count, you have to scan the thing to find it. And with the music on the sidekick it is wayyyyy better man come on. You type the name of the song you want. Its easy. Takes me 5 seconds the most to get what I want. Ipod you have to search all that **** to listen to one song, anyways, its about how fast you can get to everything. Really, all you who care about what others think about what your phone looks like and are embarrassed ? LOL oh my god who cares. You act like your gonna be judged in heaven or something haha. Does anybody agree with me? One thing I’m confused about is why the yahoo page on my phone went to some differnt screen mobile yahoo **** and why are people paying for twitter? Your people are stupid for paying for twitter. The only reason why I have tmobile is cause I have the 20 dolla plan that they honor me. Can’t beat it. I havnt tried the new lx09 but that youtube looks god awful. I’m searching for something new but can’t find what I need, I guess ill be having the lx07 till then.

    you must be stupid. really, why would i care about what people think about what my phone looks like?? my entire point in my message was that the sidekick is not even a childs phone anymore. even kids want a phone that will connect to wifi. my co workers actually work from their phones sometimes!! i cant do that with a stupid sidekick. im jealous of them and now im done with this sidekick ****. im not sticking around for the sidekick to leave the kids toys alone. im jumping ship to the android platform! enjoy yout childs phone. i hope the jump button brings you much pleasure. lol
    you stupid fool. the stupid jump button is made for people that are easy to amuse.

  12. kevin Says:

    honestly in my personal opinion the sidekick is not a childs device its an everyman device. some people (like myself) dont really need wifi we just want something cheaper than a blackberry and a server end that wont crash like RIM does and android may be ok if your into touch screen but im 25 myself and all i want my phone to do is receive calls , texts, do myspace , facebook and twitter, and deliver my emails to me. i know this sounds petty but to me my best feature on my old 08 was the fact i could go on a site and if it had a number all i would have to do is scroll, highlight, and hit send and i could save myself a 411 call as well as if i was on craigslist and i saw something i wanted to buy i could highlight the email address and compose an email to the seller and if done through t mail could communicate that way to a seller my current phone is a 5610 which i may keep as a backup in case the used sk acts up. but all in all thrilled to death that danger finally put facebook and twitter on the catalogue
