Where is the Sidekick LX Video OTA?

Everyone keeps asking where their video OTA is for the Sidekick LX. It’s still in the pioneer phase right now. This means it will roll out to a small percentage of the Sidekick LX users first. Things will be tested to make sure nothing is wrong, and then it will roll out to everyone. The OTA has been in the pioneer phase for about a month, with no word on an official full roll-out date yet. It’s unclear as to why things aren’t rolling out to everyone, but it could be anything from a small bug, to larger problems on the back-end servers. Hang in there guys. It’s totally worth the wait!

    honestly this is so annoying and I wish that we would have never found out about this OTA. I’m def getting the sidekick “2008” it seems so cool. it lets me express myself. an since danger sucks with giving us good features. I doubt we are getting much after video. so why not trash the lx and get something with the features we should have had since the LX first came out.and actually fuck that. features we should have had since the sidekick 3.

    sorry. I just went on that lil rant. I’m a die hard sidekick fan but a lot of the things danger does are really good biz moves but very annoying to the consumer.

    I called T-Mobile, they are working on some server upgrades and this affect the current problem with sending and receiving emails. I also want the new sidekick Gekko.

    I spoke with the danger dept last week & they told me that they ARE ROLLING OUT! the only ppl expecting an OTA update right now are LX owners… they said it can take maybe upto another 2 months before i get it 🙁

    i have talked the sidekick department and they said that the update will be out to the lx users by the end of the week what ever that means. so i guess like today or tomorrow but i doubt thats true. they are stupid

    I talked to a guy at a T-Mobile kiosk in the mall (I was getting desperate, lol) and he said his bosses told him the update wasn’t coming until mid-August. I wish I never found out about it too.

    And is it a way that someone could make a Youtube-like website specifically for sidekick LX users? That’d be cool.

    Don’t give up hope eveyone. I JUST got my OTA update! So far I haven’t had a chance to try the video player, but I do like the overall look of the new media player itself. Love the fact that you can download more ringtones now and have more space for applications. The few things that I have noticed though are so far so good.

    So don’t get discouraged……the OTA updates are for real and they are coming. I live in CA. So I don’t know how they are choosing who gets them but I was pleasantly surprised to receive mine.
