When will AT&T get on board

Too me it makes no sense for Motorola to release a Sidekick copy for T-Mobile, when they could of brought something like that to AT&T. I sale for the company, and usually their attempt at selling a SMS device somewhat like the sidekick has failed.
I get customers coming in all the time looking for something like this for their teens, and it seems retarded to sell them a blackberry.

Um...so...

phonescoop was wrong..at least with my t-mobile store...my store doesn't offer any kind of early oct 17th trade in upgrade..they said strictly the 24th..also this is the sidekick 4 people...get over it. It is worth 500 dollars...but people saying it finally has flash...well my sk3 has a flash...just is terrible...

Picture messaging and a gorgeous screen and even mood led's are worth the extra 100...I think anyway, Honestly WiFi and a 2mp camera should have been standard...but hey beggars can't be choosers.
Well...if you check your internal systems, you would see that only like 6 stores nationwide are doing it on the 17th, and I believe customer care will upgrade, but GENERAL release is the 24th, i.e. when all the stores get it.

And where does it say ...

Why waste your money?

Helio Ocean clobbers the snot outta both these things. Also costs $300 but the Ocean gives you:

GPS enabled Google Maps
3G with full HTMP web browsing
2MP Cam


Seriously, price being equal with the LX, why the hell would someone NOT get an Ocean over one of these toys you call "sidekicks"?
Not every has or wants Helio. Some people prefer GSM.

People here are sure quick to bash a device. Different strokes for different folks.

What the buck????

Whats the whole point of releasing these device without hardly any upgrades. This is not much better than the sidekick 3.
Dude just look at the lx screen. 3 beautiful inches of Sharp Aquos LCD glory. Drooling

Enough said Drooling
...
Well both the LX and the Slide have MMS capabilities...finally! Very Happy The SK LX has a flash so hopefully this device will take much better pix...and as mentioned above the screen resolution is much much better than prev SKs.

WHOOOOOOOO CARES???

No, really, who here cares about a new Sidekick if it's not the 4? These are cheezy and uninspired. The slide is purple? Are they serious? Wow. And today, they started offering reservation cards Confused

I do like that the screen will be clear, seeing as how the screen on past SKs have been less then garbage. But besides that, how about ONE SK now, and two 4s? Doesn't that sound better?
The LX is the Sidekick 4. About the one sidekick now and two 4s later is basically what they did (sidekick iD now, LX and Slide later)

Razz Razz Razz
...
The SKLX is the 4. Eh?

Worth it

Do you guys think its worth the extra 100 just for the bigger screen and a camera flash?

What else am i missing

Also the screen is 16 bit?

WEAK!!!!!!!!
If you can tell the difference between a 65K and 262K screen in normal usage (i.e. not a test pattern) then you have better eyes then me, and I stare at phone screens for a living. If your wallpaper is something like a sunset with very gradual gradien...

Someone has to say it...

only 1.3mp? C'mon these are great phones, thats the only bad part about them. Moto should have been able to pull a 2mp from the parts bin. Oh well.
i Agree that atleast the lx shouldve been 2 but with that screen most probably will think it is

Sidekicks are for chicks

Surprised Surprised Surprised

what a revelation!!!

Anyone with that much cash to drop on a phone would choose something a bit less hip. C'mon a Curve with Wifi for about the same price.

There is nothing wrong with the sidekick. It is just for tweens, chicks, expectant mothers, dudes looking to impress their very young counterparts, and basketball players.

I have a few male friends of a questionable orientation, THEY ALL HAVE SIDEKICKS.
