Bottom line, if you want to use the Swype keyboard, don't have fat fingers!

rjs_enterprises, Ebay
15 April 2011
  • Summary: Just because I gave this only 3 stars out of 5 does not mean it is not a great phone -- just not great for me. My grandkids would love to have this phone. My main issue with this phone is because of my fat fingers, and Arthritis. When I touch the screen I always seem to hit too many keys. Using the Swype keyboard is impossible, thank goodness there is the slide out keyboard. the phone would be much better (for me) if I could use a stylus on the screen.

Nice phone with somr factory defects

dima3, Ebay
20 March 2011
  • Summary: Its a nice sturdy phone, great for those spending time outdoors. There are, however, couple of minor, and one major issues with it. Minor things first: 1) The battery inside is a bit loose, and rattles when the phone is shaken. An easy fix is to put a piece of folded paper under the cover. 2) Motorola is known for slow releases of updates. Current factory 2.1 rom is not the best for sure. One of the issues is being unable to end the call when the screen is off.

Good phone if you root it!

doctorgonzo1, Ebay
18 March 2011
  • Summary: This phone is average. Voice quality is decent, the touchscreen is on the smaller side, the camera takes pretty good pictures and has a flash. Nothing is remarkable about the physical package. I bought this phone one year ago after being told by a T-Mobile salesperson that it would be upgraded from Android 1.5 to Android 2.0 "soon". "Soon" turned to delay after delay, until finally this year, Motorola said that they would not be upgrading it after all.

The phone is ok

hiitskatrina, Ebay
20 December 2010
  • Summary: This phone is OK. It differs from the CLIQ in that it has no sliding QWERTY keyboard. I thought it did, and thats why I bought it. The on screen keyboard works well enough but I make multiple mistakes while typing. The motoblur is ODD. It alerts me when I get an email, or even when I get an alert on facebook (like an upcoming birthday for example) with an audible tone and I still have not figured out how to select to only get tones for texts, etc.

Sidekick Slide

rishiku88, Ebay
15 April 2008
  • Summary: The phone is amazing, it has all the features you could want. Except that with the carrier (i am using tmobile) you have to pay extra to be able to get alot of the features, your phone book is stored on a server, not on your phone. The time only updates with their server. so if you dont pay the extra $19.99 a month (comes with unlimited brouser im and messaging) You sort of dont get the WHOLE package.

Innovative device - needs more applications & coverage

travantsystems, Ebay
5 June 2006
  • Summary: Hello eBay members, I owned this device for about a year before selling it on eBay. I cannot comment on it's phone capabilities since I used it primary as a data device to surf the web and receive email. The reason I originally purchased the Sidekick was for its innovative design and ease of use. I really liked the keyboard and flip around screen as well as the rotating wheel to scroll through screens and applications.

Useless phone

sarawwrr, Dooyoo
18 May 2011
  • Excerpt: I purchased this phone around a year and a half ago, and I can't wait to gather the money to get rid of this beast. There are themes you can download on the internet to customise your phone, but thats about as far as it goes. You cannot use mp3's as ringtones, so you either have to use the ones which come with the handset, or you can record them. Although you will get a million compliments for owning this handset, that is about as good as it gets.
