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.
Summary: I've had my phone for over two years and the only problem I had was it would turn off every now and then after the first year! I called and got an exchange and my phone is perfect now! I would definitely recommend this phone. I love that it has a front camera as well.
Excerpt: looks like a very good phone but when you start to use it then it doesnt work very well at ALL! I am a very heavy texter, im a teenager. I dont recommend this phone to anyone! I have replaced the battery, the phone, and downloaded apps to help NOTHING WORKS. it doesnt even last through school and i dont text a lot at school. I turn it off and i send one text and its pratically dead when i turn it back on and after i text a couple times.
Summary: I love my sidekick, i was so excited when i finally recieved it in the mail. But i found out that it is unbelivably sensitive to "water". Humidi outside? Hand a bit warmer than the air? Prepare to restart you phone and not use the touch screen. Deffinatly dont use this where it rains a lot! Love the phone, but i need to buy a new kind because of this very touchy problem. Hope this helps some one before buying!
"i have owned this thing almost since it came out"

Pros: takes a beating, music player is handy. qwerty keyboard...
Cons: over heats, screen freezes, battery drainage/low batter life, touch screen is too sensitive(after having it so long), flips to screens you don't want it to, or when texting you tap a name and it brings you to another person completely.
Summary: I have always loved sidekicks, I owned a sidekick 3 prior to this one.....since the new sidekick came with android I decided Id have to get myself one...When I had first got the sidekick 4g it ran just fine, I loved it... especially for its front facing camera and full keyboard...however I missed the swivel screen. After a while of owning the phone I noticed it starts to lag up a bit more it cant handel all some of the apps in playstore.
Summary: The phone works well for someone who is looking for their first smart phone. There are limited features and the phone gets to be boring. The market provides alot of free games and entertainment but the phone itself has very few features that make using the phone itself enjoyable. It is an overall good phone with a few glitches such as the screen does not always respond, screen freezes, and the sound is little loud on phone calls, but overall it is a good phone.
Pros: Durable, Lightweight
Cons: Too big, Did not meet expectations, screen freezes
Summary: I have always loved the sidekick's I've owned. The 4g by samsung is a good phone but i miss some of the features the previous models had like the flip screen which has been reduced to a slider-like phone.
