    They are nothing alike...totally different.

    Not very customizable, you have to pay for everything on them, more for the kids than anything else.

    i would get a sidekick just so I have a big screen to text, view media, browse internet, etc on but I'm not into big phones. I like all the capabilities in a tiny phone... which is the pearl.

    Sidekick LX was rated number one by the Electronic Consumers Agency for 2007. It scored a 97 out of 100 average amongst 10,000 people between the ages of 10 and 15 who rated it. Enough said...

    I just recently switched from the Sidekick 3 (predecessor to the LX, I think they're fairly similar... could be wrong) to the Pearl -- I have to say I really love the size of the Pearl. The Sidekick was just too bulky, I couldn't really fit it in a pocket. Plus they don't let you add apps unless you buy them from T-Mobile's catalog on the device... so no freeware apps and a really limited selection. The interface was pretty nice, though. Still glad I switched!

    I think the sidekick lx is aiight. I love the customizable lights.
    Sidekick qwerty keyboard, texting package and ease and constant im connection just can't be beat. Coming from a long time sidekick user I actually miss the swivel screen. Brings back memories hehe. I like having the keys covered too and not having to lock my phone and unlock my phone. That's pretty much it. Bb wins everything else.

    Well that just shows how long I haven't used a sidekick I forgot you have to lock it but just flip the screen to unlock.

    Re: Sidekick LX and pearl..

    Hi I'm new to the BB world. I am an old sidekicker. I had sk2 & sk3 sad to say I went through 3 of my sk3 in 1 month. I had a lot of issues from loose screen to buttons not working.
    I must admit I loved the big screen and bundle package. Aside from that it was a horrible headache. My last straw was my kick was freezing for 2 weeks. Customer care tried there best but it needed to go tmobile for the 3 time. I was so angry I was going to cancel my contract until the talked me into the pearl & I love it!!!

    The sidekick to me is the high school/teen sort of phone while the Blackberry is more of a grown up/professional type phone, both in looks and functions. In other words BB>Sidekick. This coming from someone that is 19 and has no interest in a sidekick.
