    Re: T-Mobile Sidekick III 3

    I've seen and handled a Kick III, definite improvement over kick II. Better screen, much better keypad (I've seen a few keypads fall off before). My friend and I were hanging out for a bit- (3) catching up on business, some odds and ends that have to be dealt with (2) and making sure we are on the right track..(1- BOOM)

    SIDEKICK DATA CRASH!!!! No LIE...

    It happened that fast.

    I looked at the kick 3, at the local TMO store. They opened a box, the shipment had just come in as it was the day that TMO introduced officially here anyway.... so i'm checking this thing out, flip open the screen to get to the k/b, and the thing falls off and is hanging there like some kind of limp asparagus head... then my tmo rep is saying that shouldn't happen, duh, you think? and a friend of mine had the kick2 and had same issues with the screen. buy an IPOD, get a BB. that's what i did and i'm phenominally happy

    In all fairness, the sidekick is an amzing device.... When it works.... Which, unforunately, is not not often. I too spent many days/nights looking at a useless sk because of outages. And the craftsmanship is quite poor on them. So for stability, is Blackberry all the way.

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~Get the Pearl. It has an mp3 player, 1.3 mp camera, mini SD card slot, video playback and al the great features of a BB. The Sidekick truly is a very "immature" device. They're for high school and college kids. Plus I have heard of many problems with the data service on the SK3 and the SKs have always been weak. They break easily and sor no reason. Be loyal to the Berry.

    I think the sidekick is honestly more for the DIEHARD AIM fans. Otherwise get a BB, use Verichat, Ramble or IM+. If you wanna sidekick 3, get one! Then end up coming back to the blackberry. Thats what I did

    One of the main form functions that I prefer in a BB over a Sidekick and whatever other crap there is out there is the fact that you don't have to flip open a keyboard and turn the thing sideways in order to type a message. With the 8700, its always there baby...

    hey if the sidekick works for you than great get it - but in the long run you will have an overpriced aol im phone that has crappy reception. If you take out a sidekick in the business world you will get laughed at. If you take out a blackberry you get respect

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~i tell that all of the statements have been true! I went from a Sidekick to a BB 7105t only because it was free at first. Now that I switched iam glad I did! The BB just works better! I got the Sidekick to use when I was going out and looked cool when I would pull it out for girls! The BB instantly gives you credit on any stage, almost like pulling up somewhere like a rolls Royce!

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~
    Just bumping the thread to add some comments about the Cingular 8125 that was mentioned above. I actually came to a BB from that phone. Windows Mobile is really buggy, IMO. I was doing resets almost on a daily basis. If I went on the internet, played an MP3 or 2, opened the calendar, then made some notes & then tried to make a phone call the phone would lock up. Overall, just a lot of stability issues which sucked because I really wanted to keep that phone. And honestly sometimes I do miss having a camera or being able to play MP3s but then I think about how often I used those features (not that often) & about how when I did use them how much they would bogg the phone performance down and it just wasn't worth it. The Blackberry is a lot more stable & as a few others mentioned, more professional looking.

    Just my 2 cents.

No yahoo email delivered to my phone.
    SKs are also touchy with that flip screen, and I had charging problems with all the SKs I had.
    I dropped my SK once I learned about the BB. And I actually spen less a month on my Tmo bill with my BB than with my SK!
    I would never recommend an SK to anyone. It spent a lot of time as an expensive paperweight.

    Also - a Tmo rebate and Amazon rebate generally can not be used together on a phone.
    How did you take care of the charging problems. I'm having a problem now with my Sidekick III.

    TIA

    Re: T-Mobile Sidekick III 3

    Which charging problem are you having? The one where the battery is dying out or where the charging light doesn't come on? Either way, contact the warranty exchange dept and get a replacement.
