i want to get a 4 gig card but im not gonna waste my money if it wont work
Seems expensie for a SMS/MMS only phone.
Is this primarily a messaging and gaming device?
What am I missing? (No flaming, please)
Note that we have WM, Nokia and Moto devices and are used to each manufacturer's modding/hacking capabilities.
Thanks for any insight.

So outdated, too bulky, no 3G support, not even WIFI, no video support (i.e. youtube) when was this phone made ... in 2003?
I don't think sharp made this ...
I think T-Mobile wanted an 'in-between" phone for the ID and the LX, and got some no-name company to throw this together. Any proof sharp had anything to do with this new SK?

SideKick LX just got SOFTWARE UPDATE!!!!!!
After almost 2 weeks since the Sidekick 2008 is released the LX finally gets the same Software upgrade. You get a few facial enhancements in terms of the images for the icons on the menu screen.
Here are the major enhancements:
You can now enter a chat room on AOL (AIM) instant messenger.
Camera can now record video clips. Even with a memory card it only records 20 second clips. Unlike other cell phones that can record forever depending on how big the size of the Micro SD card is.
You can now send the video clips as well. You can also add video clips to your memory card & watch them. So if you have a TV show or movie saved to your PC you can now copy, paste, save on SD card, and watch ...
i totally want this phone
Dialing a phone number is garbage. You have to slide the screen open and enter the number using the keyboard. (If you've already entered a contact into your address book, you can initiate a call with the phone closed.) Once the call is connected, you can close the phone--and to talk, you'll have to. This additional step isn't a deal-breaker, but itâ€™s a pain. The sidekick is also bulky and heavy when on a call.
The Slide, supports the EDGE data network. This is not a true high-speed, 3G data network, and it shows: Pages and images can be slow to load.
Software is a true weakness for all Sidekick...

Garbage is: The QWERTY keyboard is a disappointment. The keys are small (even for a smartphone.
The sidekick isnt a smart phone. I'm not going to bother reading the rest.

All the new sidekicks(except for the slide) use rubber keys. And I...
I never see anyone use one anymore and I travel more than I like, my 12 year old daughter told me no one in school uses it so who buys it?
Yet, T mobile has a whole row in their inventory???
Maybe there is a big demand for it in "Rooster Poop Ark".
