Summary: I love the design of the sidekick and I wish that most new phones swivel the way it did. To unlock I had to go through a paid remote service for $25. Otherwise it will not work on other networks other than T-Mobile, Simple Mobile, Straight Talk, or Net10. Before I had Net10 service with this phone, you need to go on their website and order a tmobile compatible sim card, the same thing if you want to use it for Straight Talk. I could only use it for Talk and Text only.
Summary: WHEN ORDERING THIS PRODUT I THOUGHT IT WOULD COME WITH EVERYTHING FIRST IT ARRIVED IN A VERIZON BOX WHEN ITS A TMOBILE PHONE AND SECONDLY IT CAME WITH NO BACK BATTERY DOOR SO I LOVE THE PHONE EVEN THOUGH IT DIDNT COME WITH A CHARGER TO CHARGE IT.
Reconditioned? Sticker on back of display says... yes!

Summary: Phone's ok. Didn't come with any paperwork. "original box" seems to imply complete package including paperwork... and no mention in the product description about reconditioned units. I have two other Sidekick phones and wanted to add this model to my "collection". Good enough. The phone works, and that's good enough too. My only gripe is the lame description and the reconditioned unit. Price is about right for what I received.
Summary: I just placed the order for this Mobile and hope i will receive it soon, so then i will leave another feedback... what can i say now is that from other customers review i only have seen positive comments , well for that price and the quality of this is perfect for me and for everyone
Summary: It's an amazing experience with this phone. The quality is the sole reason why I bought this in the first place. It's made in Japan and more importantly the battery lasts about a week standby.
Summary: T-Mobile is Ending the Sidekick line. I am currently a sidekick user. And yesterday i received a text messege from t-mobile stating " Sidekick data service no longer available 5/31 move to a ne plan now and get a $10 BONUS Credit applied to acct within a week of move." After recieving this message i called the Customer Service line and they stated that they are stoping the Sidekick line all together.
Summary: This is a really cool phone. I had wanted one for a long time. Unfortunately after purchasing it I discovered that no carriers support data service for this phone any longer. It works for calls and text only. It also loses the contacts if the batteries die. This is due to the way the contacts are stored on the data servers that no longer exist. Don't buy it unless you only want to make calls or text.
Summary: I bought the NewPhone s.k 08 three weeks ago and was immediately impressed with the number of features available on this inexpensive phone. It has a 1M-pixel camera, video camera, and speakerphone. The NewPhone's size is perfect for carrying in a pocket and the battery has a pretty good lifespan of roughly 4 hours.
Summary: The Danger SideKick is a nice phone to have with the following exceptions. The body style is quite bulky. But then again, this phone is great for texting. The screen rotates out instead of slide up. The drawback is that there is a tendency for this screen to accidentally break. After several tries of figuring out how to make the text alert work, I gave up. There are several blogs regarding the text alert having to subscribe to TMobile for their premium service.
