I currently have my old sidekick lx for almost 2 years now i got it in december in 2007 and i know that my contract is up this december in 2009.

Doesn't TMO have 22 month upgrades as other major carriers?

Ok per the HSU fee should be 199.99 however I went online to place my pre-order and it's showing the base price of 449.99!!!!! Why the huge difference? Do I have to call customer service to place the pre-order so that I get the 199.99 base price?
Well you are only eligible for that price if you havent changed your phone in a really long time.If you have changed your phone recently then you can't get it at that price.If I were you I would cc service anyway.
Customers eligible for full discount on their upgrades will get this device for $249.99 and have a $50 mail in rebate. Only standard post pay customers are eligible to purchase this phone during the pre-sale period.
Ok so I called and basically because I did a HSU within the last 22months I'm not eligible for full discount (which they said would be 199.99) and customer service cannot place pre-orders either they said you have to do it online, oh well Sad
Sounds like another overpriced dumb phone Smile Twisted Evil Very Happy Laughing Twisted Evil

i don't know if it will have music streaming, but i do know it will have you tube. you will even be able to upload videos directly from your sidekick lx 2009!!! Very Happy

When will it be a smart phone?

The following is my opinion but feel free to add yours I don’t mind Very Happy

Okay yeah I don't think I will ever understand how this phone, that changes very little every year, ever got so popular.

There are tons of good texting phones out there and they are usually cheaper. I mean what is so great about this phone the poor camera? Or the fact that it flips up? Or that you have to have the phone in two hands to use?
Seriously why is this phone listed as a Smartphone everywhere I look? Is there something about it that I just don't get? Is it because a few famous people use it on T-Mobile commercials? Or that you can get the D-Wade edition or the Slim Shady edition or whatever cool edition there is that makes the phone an extra...

Sync Google Through Exchange?

Since Google uses Exchange for iphone and Windows Mobile syncing, will it possible to use the SK to sync google contacts, and calendar?
