Sidekick LX 2009 Unboxing

The first (real) Sidekick LX 2009 unboxing!  exiva was one of the lucky ones that got his Sidekick LX 2009 a little bit early.  He’s posted a bunch of photos of him unboxing it as well as some great close ups.  Check them out below:

I got in touch with him and he says he’s willing to answer any questions you guys have.  So lay them on us in the comments and we’ll answer any of the unanswered questions you still have!

    If you had ringtones on a previous sidekick, were they transferred over?

    Can we use sounds as ringtones saved from emails?

    What does the battery look like?

    is the speaker really a big difference?

    Does the applications and ringtones transfer?

    Is ringtone recording on the official to the public phone?

    Are the keys on the keypad the same material as the ones on the Sidekick LX?

    What are the new “face/mood” icons in the messengers.

    What is available in the catalog? anything free or different? is it full of items or a limit due to the new O.S?

  29. Dan Says:

    does it have flash on it? do other websites beside youtube that use flash do they work like hulu?

  30. Danyosan Says:

    Soo, i talked to a cs rep today after I had ordered my SKLX09. And she said any apps and ringtones(purchased products) and games, that I bought within the last 90 days would transfer to my new SK. She said if I didn’t get some that I did purchase recently, she could resend them to my device. 🙂

  31. LStrike Says:

    @Danyosan: She lied to you and has no idea what she is talking about. Those applications have been confirmed by folks inside of Danger/Microsoft to definitely not be transferring over.

    Also from experience with every iteration of SK since the 2 they have NEVER ever done that and she can’t transfer anything to your SK since the apps are installed via the store on the phone. Maybe TMobile can give you a refund or credit (which I doubt) but you will not see any automatic application transfer thats for certain.

  32. HIHiHIuchiha Says:

    can you send pics to ppl on aim?

  33. Chad Says:

    How is the browser? I currently have a G1 but pre-ordered the LX. How does it compare to say the G1 or iPhone’s browser? Does it seem more like a smartphone than previous sidekicks or does it still seem to be just a messaging phone?

  34. momo Says:

    I would be interested in your phone! I can explain how to buy mobile phones here? XD

  35. Jill Says:

    What about users with the faulty motorola Sidekick slide, rumoured with the free upgrades to the new LX promised by the company?

  36. crazyforwhat Says:

    I got my tracking information on UPS. Estimated delivery says 5/12!!!!!

  37. Robert Says:

    Does the new sidekick come with a wrist strap?

    and how much will it be with a new 2 year contract at the store?

  38. lauren Says:

    but now i have to work all day and wait til i get home to get it 🙁

  39. Its What I do Says:

    I got mine today! But what the heck is up with this crappy sleeve case????? It doesn’t even have a belt clip! looks like a sunglasses case… CHEAP

    I like it but seems to run slow and gets hung up while scrolling around
