Great Keyboard, poor followup to Danger Hiptop/Sidekick series
5 September 2013
Summary: This was my first Android device and my last in the fabled Sidekick series by T-Mobile. For what it's worth, the 5-row QWERTY keyboard is probably the only thing that was worth it on this device. With touch screens being the norm these days, you'll be hard pressed to find a phone made with such an accurate/durable feature. Typing on it was a dream. The only downside is that it lacked the option for special characters depending on what you might be typing.
Pros: it looks fancy and nice & keyboard is great but...lookout had Sidekick phones Sidekick I B&W Sidekick II color Sidekick LX & now Sidekick android it's horrible the worst one
Cons: It drops calls frequently, freezes up so bad you have to remove the battery and restart it, takes forever to boot up, has limited memory has numerous apps that you cannot remove: twitter, facebook & others,
Summary: i have been a sidekick lover for years and i recently bought the sidekick 4g to see what the whole mess was about, people rating it worked poorly froze a lot and would shut off for no reason, and that was all true ........ i couldn't stay on the internet for a few minutes at a time because my phone would freeze and it would restart.. i do NOT recommend this phone!!!!!!!
Summary: I purchased this phone a couple weeks ago and i can say i am happy with my purchase. What i cant say is how well the factory operating system works on the phone. I am currently running a different operating system and i have experienced no issues. *Battery -Battery lasts all day with heavy use, sometimes even a day and a half but i dont let it get low. *Quick Key -The quick key that the sidekick is known for it very handy in switching between apps.
Summary: I bought this phone, which for one obviously sucks but I needed a temporary phone in the mean time. But the worst part about this was I expedited my order and didn't get my phone until almost two weeks later. Every time I would email the company I bought it from it felt like I was talking to a bunch of meat heads that have no idea what there doing and giving me short answers. I demanded to return this product........ about 5 months later and still NO REPLY.
Summary: When I saw the phone on your website it stated that the phone was brand new. The phone came in a box that was not the original sidekick box; no instruction manuals were enclosed and the phone had visible scratches as well as a the black tape that is near the battery area, it was all twisted and old. The lens for camera was filled with dust. I am disappointed because I have bought things in the past from Amazon and was pleased with those purchases.
"Horrible Phone. Should have listened to reviews."

Pros: Music Apps and front facing camera
Cons: Battery life, phone blacks out on you, freezes, barely drop it and the whole thing falls apart. Slow..takes forever to reboot and when it freezes, you have to reboot it. I HATE this phone. Never again
Summary: Like I said, pretty awesome phone. Saw my cousin with one last year and decided to get one since I've always been a fan of physical keyboards. Its a solid phone, I love it...but I must admit the OS is kinda laggy. Fixed that with a custom rom install and its been smooth sailing ever since.
Summary: Makes calls, text, and gets on internet. frequent error messages putting in contacts. Roller ball does not work. Come with ac charger, the phone, quick start guide which did not even included adding the micro-sd insertion. I was shocked no voice recorder -or it's well hidden This is my first smart phone. It will be a OK starter.
