T-Mobile Sidekick

Posted on: March 3rd, 2009 by Elena Sinicrope

The good: Full KeyboardGreat Text Messaging2.0 Megapixel CameraVideo CameraE-mail that uses YOUR accountsAIM, MSN, & Yahoo Instant MessagingDownloadsThe bad: Hard to dial a simple numberVoice sound not that great.Kinda heavy. Deinitely not for people with huge fingers.Summary: Voice calls - The sound on this phone isn't great. Usually I just switch to speakerphone and that solves my problem but I have missed a few details in a conversation once or twice and I do ask people to speak up. But I don't talk on the phone that much so it isn't a big deal to me at all. Dialing a number isn't easy. Either you have to flip it open and use the keyboard (which the number and letters are arranged exactly like a computer keyboard) or use the ball to navigate around a number pad provided on the screen (which takes some definite getting used to). Getting to recent and missed calls are pretty accessible. Also the phone book is easily accessed. Text/Picture Messaging - This feature is excellent on this phone. You can send and receive text and picture messages easily. The keyboard lights up so the dark isn't a problem. Whenever you receive a message you have a button at the bottom to "call back" and I like that because if it's important and I would rather speak to them then looking through my phone book isn't something I need to do. All in all it seems like basic texting because after all how fancy can you get with sending a text message? But I really like the keyboard so I really like the texting.E-mail - I honestly didn't think I would use this feature but I came to find I really do love it. With this phone you are able to add your own E-mail account that you use everyday whether it be AOL, Yahoo, Gmail, Comcast, BellSouth, Earthlink, etc. and I really like that. Also a Tmail (T-Mobile's own e-mail service) comes installed on the phone. The only problem is addresses. There isn't an e-mail address book. Although you can add people's e-mail address into the phone book and then use that to keep track, I would prefer keeping e-mail addresses and phone number seperate. But hey, nothing is perfect.Web - THe browser on this phone isn't all that amazing. You can type any URL into it but it loads with the whole page as if on a computer so unless you zoom in and navigate around using the ball you can't really do much. You can't stream music or watch videos which is a downer. But I mainly use mine to check facebook, myspace, and craigslist and they're perfectly accessible on this phone. THey have lots of bookmarks installed that range from facebook, to A-Z lyrics, E! Online, google, Mapquest, MSNBC Mobile, Yahoo! Mobile Weather, DHL: Track details, Ebay, ESPN Mobile, and lots more which I thought was pretty cool. And most of those are produced into "mobile" web pages which make it easier to view and navigate around on a mobile phone. So the browser is cool, but not something I would go out and by the phone for.Music player - You can add music or videos too it and the phone comes with a memory card so you can hold lots and lots of media. It's a little tricky to figure out what button does what on the music player but it has good sound and I love that I can plug the audio cable from my car into it.

Posted on: February 28th, 2009 by Anonymous

The good: the buttons are small but not to small, the screen resolution is good, 3.5mm headphone jack, 2mp camera, light, the shell that you can make on the website, at home, or that are pre-made are actually really durable, the actual phone can take a few drops(dont know from personal experience but i see my friend drop hers a lot) you don't have to take out the battery to take out the micro sd card from it, of course back light board. customizable volumes. and lastly the track ball lights up when in sleThe bad: have to take off the case to actually get to the micro sd card.no flashSummary: overall this phone is amazing! i got it for christmas and its still working like new. i already made two shells and they are high quality. if you put a picture its pretty cool.

Great Phone/Sidekick

Posted on: August 31st, 2008 by Pierce Swan

The good: Screen - QVGACamera - 2MPShells - Customization in a snap!Sound quality is good but not great...The bad: Sound quality was not the bestMedia player feels clunkyFew glitches such as keyboard sounds not always active... will be fixed in update im sure.Summary: Overall I love this new addition to the sidekick family. Its lighter than the others and much smaller. The ability to customize the shells through sidekickshells.com is amazing and offers customization that makes your phone you and fits your personality. Overall a great upgrade for anyone with SK3/Slide/LX. Not a big enough upgrade for LX users or Slide users but its there if you got the money for it. Voice quality gets a Very Good b/c not many problems with it and its clear just not crystal clear.

T-Mobile Sidekick 2008

Posted on: August 17th, 2008 by Anonymous

The sidekick 2008 is a great phone. im 13 and i bought one the other day and i think its fantastic. deffinitly angled more toward the younger crowd such as myself. If you are older i reccomend a blackberry curve from tmobile because it is better in everyway ,for less money. Overall the sidekick "codename Gekko" is a great phone.The only bad thing about it is the voice quality when talking like a phone. But it is a great phone for teens.
