Updated Sidekick Data Plans for LX and Slide

Word from BoyGeniusReport is that T-Mobile is going to be updating Sidekick Data plans to include Unlimited MMS for the LX and Slide, and remain at the same price.

Those of you who are buying their LX as their first Sidekick will automatically get this new plan, the rest of us will have to call T-Mobile and be switched over.

    im really hoping thats not the case since its being advertised mostly for the LX. Im thinking its just going to be charged on any other SK and not the LX. Just a guess tho.

    does anyone know if we will be able to upgrade tonight @ 12 AM EST? I dont recall if we were able to do that for the sk3, the night of I mean.

  6. Germanopher Says:

    Yes, you will be able to upgrade at midnight of the 17th either online or on the phone. I’m going to do it on the phone since it won’t let me upgrade online because I’m still under contract =/

  7. illsellyoursoul Says:

    hmm… last year I was under contract and I was able to do it online. Wonder if it changed for this year?

  8. evester Says:

    hey quick question to those upgrading

    if you upgrade — it basically means your changing your contract right? you won’t get the physical phone til when?

    is it really all that much better to upgrade tomorrow?

  9. illsellyoursoul Says:

    well last year… upgrading meant getting the phone within 2 days latest… I know some got it the next day.

  10. evester Says:

    ohh..hmmm definitely before 24th though?

  11. evester Says:

    okkayyy well i was a little too excited and called tmobile customer service and this is what i found out

    if you already are a tmobile customer, you can get one physically in your hands tomorrow at a tmobile store.
    or if you live in texas or in texas time zone –can get one at 11:01PM 10/16 since its coming out at Eastern 12:01 time. wooo

    now the guy i talked to sure did sound pretty knowledgeable about it so maybe its true.

    i asked him about the the limited cities and he’s like no, should be any tmobile place.

    so thankfully ive been a loyal loyal tmobile customer for 2+ years and i will hopefully be getting that **** blue one tomorrw!

    if you can discredit me please do so bc i’d hate to be giving out this false information as ive heard that tmobile customer service reps were a little shaky

    I can’t wait. About 4 more hours before I can officially order my skLX! What color is everybody getting – I’m still indecisive !

    blueee on the way for me
    brown is just poopy…couldnt’ think of a better.worse description

    sorry kiddies, i retried customer service and of course the guy was just yanking of chain. tonight at 1201AM, i guess everywhere not just eastern cause its 1110PM here in texas and i can’t get it online

    you can get it online or wait til yoru friendly neighborhood store is open to barge in and !

    change your plan. yup you can order it and get yourself all set up and start twindling your thumbs and stalking out the ups guys driving down your streets.

    free shippign is what they’re trying to snag you in on, but its only on standard shipping, which can come up to 7 days. regular fees apply for express 3 day delivery.

    so it all boils down to one thing

    how bad do you want it?

  18. christyv32 Says:

    yea will be availble as an upgrade (or purchase) online through custmer care..thats what i did

    an for a limited time has express free shipping if u buy online..that 3 days..depending on the post office that can go either way..

    so for me i can get it saturday or monday

    but i will try to wait patiently..still get it before the 24th lol

    first time i ever bought something the moment it comes out..hopefully it was the right choice

  19. vespalee Says:

    Chill out, only a few designated stores in larger metro areas had the phones on the 17th; e.g., there was only one in Atlanta. No matter, I ordered mine from Tmobile online on the 17th and received it on the 17th.

    Back to the original topic, I see two Sidekick data plans on Tmobile; one if $20.00 and the other is $19.99, but the explanations for both are the same, and neither mention MMS specifically. I haven’t made a change to the plan yet, and the one selected (which is the one I was using with SK3) is the $20.00 plan. Tmobile can be a little sloppy with their website, they need to indicate which plan is which. I’m still not sure.

  20. vespalee Says:

    Oops, haha, I ordered it on the 17th and received it on the 18th, still great but not same day delivery!

  21. vespalee Says:

    OK, sorry for multiple posts, but further reading at boygeniusreport reveals that the $20.00 plan is the old plan, the $19.99 plan is the new plan for LX that includes MMS.

  22. tomsmo Says:

    I was wondering if 19.99 is it really needed what if do not buy the plan will they still sell the phone.
