    ALSO NOTE THE BOTTOM LEFT CORNER!!! New Back-up feature for current Sidekick users. Allows backup for Contacts, ToDo, **CALENDAR**, **WEB BOOKMARKS**, Email, & Photos

  3. ncmacasl Says:

    I meant **NOTES**, not e-mail.

    Only thing missing from the Improved BackUp is AutoText!!

    it doesnt mean back up,i think its something like the old desktop interface where you can see whats on your sk on your pc. theres already a sidekick-export app for backing most stuff up

    are they gona give the sidekicks users back there data i havnt had a sickick for about a year or two i tryed to get my data back recently n was told my user name dont exist no more and i think thats b.s if they planning oon releasing a new phone

  7. Jay Says:

    Regarding the backup, if it runs on Android your backup will be with Gmail. All of your contacts will be synced to your Gmail account.

  8. Jay Says:

    ^^ Which also means future Sidekicks won’t have Tmail accounts.

  9. ncmacasl Says:

    No it is a BACKUP utility for CURRENT Sidekick Accounts. I have a current Sidekick and I used it to backup all of my data. It is NEW since the old backup utility did not back up Calendar, bookmarks or notes!

    @adam, it is knowledge that, no matter you got your Danger device through – T-Mobile US/DE/GE/UK, Telstra AU, Fido Canada, SUNCOM etc etc that your Danger account can be deleted after you cancel your phone plan with your carrier that provides Danger services. What company should maintain an account with you if you don’t?

    @Jay, T-Mobile could partner with Google to provide Gmail services using a @tmail.com address, its possible. Alas all the Danger users with tmails would probably have their emails cancelled to do so before Google could step in

    Feel the weather? Its almost spring, which means the device is almost here 🙂

    But now I’m a little torn between this and the HTC HD2 (i know its old, but it still a great phone..plan on rooting it to run Android).

    What should i do? Wait for the ‘Kick or HD2-it-out? :\ Either way, i’m getting BOTH…which should I get first nd keep as my primary?

  12. LoSo Says:

    didn’t expect to hear that fro you…but im waiting for my kickkk!!

  13. mwc Says:

    Im still rocking wit the LX 2009 (Carbon) on my second line. (Blackberry Javelin 8900 on the primary). I totally HATE that samsuck is making the Sidekick 4G, but imma loyal sidekick user so I will cop the device when it lauch if I dont cop the myTouch 4g by then. Anyways, If anyone still has a Tmail account like me… AIM me @ quikk312 and I will give u mine so we sidekick fans can keep in touch (No Homo) lol.

    The END of DANGER?!?!?


    This article just posted today: https://www.techflash.com/seattle/2011/02/sidekick-end-of-an-era-for-danger.html


    Microsoft made a big splash in 2008 with the acquisition of Danger Inc., plopping down $500 million for the mobile technology company behind T-Mobile’s iconic Sidekick device.

    Gee, how’d that turn out?

    Of course, the ensuing three years have been anything but smooth, with an October 2009 meltdown of the Microsoft/Danger servers leaving some of T-Mobile’s most faithful customers fuming. Meanwhile, back at Microsoft, the company’s attempt to leverage Danger’s expertise resulted in the short-lived Microsoft Kin.
    And here’s the latest: T-Mobile and Microsoft will soon detail plans to transition away from the Danger servers that run the current generation of Sidekick devices.

    Neither company is commenting at this point, but we’re hearing that the announcement could come as early as this week.

    The development makes sense, after the wireless carrier confirmed last month that it plans to relaunch the Sidekick brand on Google’s Android platform. That effectively would remove Danger from the picture in the future.

    Microsoft similarly shut down the servers behind the Kin Studio online service earlier this month.

    More details on the Sidekick plans as they’re available.
