    Reply to Setnakt: I won’t argue with you. There is no need of being agressive so plese, try to respect other opinions.
    I’ve called myself to 611 bec I also won a sk and they don’t have a clue regarding promotional rate plans for people who have sk but Marketing Center had several options for me. I’m paid yes, but for taking calls to fix phones!!! I’m not customer care rep, I’m a tech care rep and I’m worried about my customers because after all, I always do my best to fix their phones, rate plans..features…promotions, that is NOT my thing and I shouldn’t care about it but I just wanted to let u know (to all sk customer) that you can get something, especially if you have tenure and a low adjustmen history. Again, this is Microsoft decision.
    I really wish everybody can get a good deal, that’s why my previous advise, however, if you call angry demanding things and you yell at reps, then most likely you won’t be given all available options. Why? simply because we don’t deserve to be treated like that. You can ask for a supervisor at marketing center or loyalty if you want but be respectfull.
    People!! Good luck!! I hope this has a happy ending for all

  2. SKTC Says:

    AND I did anser byebyetmo question. but regarding to you, Setnakt, you did not ask anything, u just said a lot of insulting things that I don’t deserve. One more thing, I’m not a “dude”. No more comments to you, you deserve nothing.

  3. Setnakt Says:

    @SKTC hey what up MF? I stand by all my previous comments. Marketing are a bunch of a-hole parasites. Loyalty Dept has the goods. T-Mo trumps Verizon, Sprint, & AT&T (that one NO DOUBT!) but there are still other options. Demonsoft screwed us all, but T-Mo should have offered us all better. Look *I* got a great offer from T-Mo, but has everyone? I’m not a selfish Republican- I DO care about others than myself!

  4. Setnakt Says:

    Check it -LOSER…#1 you ARE a certified T-Mo Gimp puck-bitch, #2, you LIED & NEVER repiled to the question on how to get anything from Marteting (show us all the post LIAR of go FUC* YOURSELF YOU FAKE!!!!) and finally…no onem that means NO ONE has any reason to ever intract with or talk to a scum-sucker like you have been PROVEN to be…LOSER!! #FAIL!!!

    @SKTC you LOSE…

  6. Nlght Says:

    it’s ok! I won’t hold it against you 🙂 so do you think the G2 is actually a good phone? I’ve heard from people that HTC makes some good devices but to be honest I’ve never really had one…. there’s so many choices to choose from but they’re just too smart for me! The sidekick was perfect for me and I was able to figure it out all on my own. Android just seems too far advance for me but I LOVE! how their operating system is open and not closed as my sidekick is ” was ” since it’ll be gone soon….. I’m also really liking the sidekick 4g because the design is so familiar to the ” Danger ” Sidekick with the exception that it doesn’t swivel lol.

  7. TBane007 Says:

    @Night, I was a SK user since the first color model came out but I jumped ship to early and got the g2 and I love it. Battery life is awesome in my own opinion and it has IP-Relay if you are deaf or hard of hearing. I am deaf and I loved my SKLX 09 but battery was not lasting as long as should so instead of buying a new battery on Amazon I got the g2 and I don’t regret my move.
    I did find it funny though that the sales rep. did hint to me about a new SK coming but didn’t want to wait and what did ya know a week later I am seeing info on this site about new SK but by Samson. I hope I helped with making a desicion for you?

  8. Setnakt Says:

    @Night you can find a DETAILED review & walkthrough of the G2 here: https://www.phonearena.com/reviews/T-Mobile-G2-Review_id2563 that will give you a very good idea of what to expect with this phone. IMO it’s an amazing phone. Good batt life & features like TBane007 says. Super-fast webspeeds (& it supports Flash). I’m not crazy about the partial (4-row) keypad but I can get use to it. And I like that it’s a metal phone, not cheap plastic. I would love to see that site do a review/walkthrough of the new Sidekick 4G so one could do a comparison of it and the G2. But can’t review a device that’s not out yet…

  9. SKTC Says:

    At Setnakt: you don’t know what are you talking about… you are disrespectful, I’ve never said anything disrespectful to u so please, stop it.
    Again, you don’t deserve anything and yes, i answered already. I don’t lie and I’m not paid for this, I just wanted to be helpfull but with people so ignorant as you…it doesn’t make any sense. Have a good life.
    Bye people. Good luck to everybody (excluding Setnakt).

  10. Setnakt Says:

    I just love how d-bag SKTC says he is done replying to me~but keeps replying anyhow! ROTFLMFAO! DUDE get a clue, I don’t need your or anyone’s luck, what are you a leprechaun? Warlocks like me are winners by skill not luck. So yet again another #FAIL, but hey, keep trying, your hilarious!

    FINALLLLY!!!

  12. Setnakt Says:

    No offence Anthony but how is that “news”? Still a release date of “sometime this spring” (so apx March 21st-June 21st) and still no pricing or any real news. I have to resit my SK every couple hours, (which kills even MORE of the batt than usual) or I get constant denial of service errors on the web browser! Why am I paying for nothing? I don’t think I can wait even two more weeks with this WEAK ass “service”. I’ll give T-Mumble tell the end of March for details or they can shove that “Sidekick” up their arses & I’m going to a STABLE G2 instead and swearing off crappy useless Sidekicks forever…so tired of this unprofessional BS…

    Anyone else getting this sh*t? “The web browser has dropped the connection” (translation: T-Mo/Danger is denying a paying customer service) denial of service BULLSH*T? So over this SIdekick scene..just die already Sidekick, in terriable pain preferably….

    Well my sidekick has always worked perfect, so maybe its just your device and not the service.

  14. Bob Says:

    To Setnakt> Don’t you have anything better to do with your life than fighting against everyone in this forum?? Why nobody can have an opinion in here with you bothering??
    I you don’t have any other busines, try to download yourself a life from http://www.getalife.com
    I bet you don’t even have a Tmo mobile phone, tell us, what are u, AT&T/Sprint customer???
    You are a loser dude!!
    I’m out of here..

  15. Bob Says:

    **If you don’t have any other business….

  16. Setnakt Says:

    @Bob, nope I got a Sidekick LX 2009, you lose. And you do exactly what you say supposedly makes me have “no life” so what does that say about you hyprocrite? You lose again, but thanks for playing. Oh and FYI, I’ve posted links to this site before proving that AT&T are traitors who violated the 4th Amendment. Only a complete loser/traitor (like YOU) would even consider being so self-centered as to do business with them.

    #FAIL

  17. Charlie Says:

    hahahahaha Bob has proved that Setnakt does not have a life!!! He answered Bob ONE MINUTE right after his post!!!!
    He is soooo lost…!!! LOL

  18. Setnakt Says:

    @Charlie That’s because I got a freaking SIDEKICK you moronic jackass. Explanation: (because I know your too butt-stupid to get it) the reply is sent direct to my Sidekick so I get it and can reply to it instantly. Thus proving I have a Sidekick and proving you have zero brains. More #FAIL!…..loser, Ha!

    P.S. “Enjoy” your craptastic AT&T “Sidekicks” LOSERS! https://feeds.gawker.com/~r/gizmodo/full/~3/FE9QV8r-W9k/att-is-buying-t+mobile Sprint (and ADULTS) here I come. Game over freaks!

    Umm, am I the only one that has yet to get the actual letter itself from T-Mobile?

    I got one as well.

  22. Nate Says:

    okay so NOW it all makes sense. T-Mobile is making its way out of the US market, so why the hell would they try to keep loyal customers? They could care less, just like how microsoft could care less because 95% of computers run on their software anyway,…. this is a sad time to be a T-Mobile customer.

  23. Hmm... Says:

    I wonder if Nikki and Kara are super sexy…

    Post us your facebook addresses, ladies!

  24. Geez Setnakt... Says:

    …Sprint? “adults”? Right. Cause it’s mature to blast people on an online forum.

    Also, if I remember correctly, you leave the Sidekicks around the fiasco just like the rest of us.

    Stop hating. Do something constructive with your time.

    https://www.facebook.com/recycledstardust now stop wondering about non sidekick related things.

  27. Humor me Says:

    This is actually very comical. Lets see MS is shutting down the Danger server May 31st. Maybe there’s a hidden message here. Does it mean that some of you can realize maybe you need to get rid of that top load VCR, take down that disco ball in your living room, get rid of that shag carpet, and yes come to realize that man did walk on the moon back in 1969 no that wasn’t yesterday. Bell bottom jeans come on now really. Are you still dialing on that rotary phone at home? Nice tandy pc along with that collection of floppies you have there. Those sideburns have to go. Get the picture? Danger hmm is that another word for Windows 3.1. Now when I got up this morning my calendar shows March 25,2011. Yea really it is.

  28. No Thanks Says:

    People still do have Tandys and people still do use Windows 3.11. People still use bell bottoms and VCR’s as well. Humor you? To anyone who feels the world should move to their beat, they just get a quick “no thanks” and a middle finger. What’s right for some wont be right for others. T

    To quote a “obsolete sitcom’s theme song, that people STILL watch by the way….

    “The world don’t move to the beat of just one drum,…” so grow up.

  29. Ivan Says:

    Finally I found some offical server abou Sidekick and some changís. T-mobile or (and) Microsoft probably dont like they customers.
    WHAT IS IT?!?!?!? Are you kidding?
    Whats the problem with old Hiptop server??? Its too expencive keeping old server on line?!?!?!? Bullshit!!!!!
    And look to the NEW sidekick. Its a shame to call this new phone like a Sidekick. Original old Sidekick have turnign 180 degreease display. Where is the “side kick” idea on new phone????
    Yes, few inovatios. Touch screen, fromt cam… But missing to me lots of old things. Light on back side, 4 buttons joystick… and most important thing! As I wrote – true SIDE KICK!!!!
    Go to the hell with a new phone…
    Hate T-mobile and Microsoft and everybody who think up this kind of changes!!!!
    Hungry bastards!!!!
    No enought money for you!!!!

    DIE!!!!!

  30. drksilot Says:

    Hello guys. I bought the sidekick for my mom because I read its easy to text with.
    She didnt need internet or any of the stuff. Just talk and text.

    But apparently without the data plan, this phone cant ring when she gets texts, or show the name of the contact when she gets texts…. Would any one know a work around that without the damn Data plan?, since its now gone?.
