Huge, Crappy Screen & Expensive!

For $300 you get a piece of Crap. The Screen itself is an absolute turn off, for the money your getting ripped off hardcore!
If you want the features of this phone plus alot better screen and more feartures your far better off buying a PDA phone like the Q, Treo, XV6700, Samsung I730 Etc.

What where they thinking???????

Its a sidekick..unfortunitally..most people looking to buy this device are not very interested in that things that we would be interested in...They are in terested in owning it cause it "hot"...The second 50 cent..or..Snoop or Paris Hilton has one..everyone NEEDS it...Its crappy sales tactics...but it works great for selling something that is not worth half of what your selling it for. People will want it simply because its a "Sidekick"...They are all Sheep..

You guys are comparing the SK against something it's not. It is NOT a PDA so don't expect it to have all those extra functions. The sidekick is a text/internet phone. For the younger kids who don't need to run windows mobile on their phone this is perfect. Kids like the text and surf internet.... perfect phone. It's loaded with features, easy to use, and comes with a cheap plan. For all the techs out there it might not be the best so just grab an MDA.

Well, sidekicks are not suppose to be PDA phones they are cool phones which lots of celebrity have. Come on if it was a piece of crap then i doubt that all the celebritys would have it. Mark Cuban the owner of the MAVs owns a sidekick 3, Paris Hilton, NBA players. Pretty much all celebritys have one.

the phone is what it is... Its not going to stack up ( Even though the price is saying it does Paranoid ) to the Q ( which is a smartphone ). If you are a messaging guru then this is the only phone for you ... Everything got its draw backs but what keeps people clinging on to the sidekick damn sure aint its looks (If it was Blackberrys would rule the earth) ... its the messaging abilities.

ARE you serious Laughing ?!!??!?!?!?!?
It is evident that you are a one dimensional thinker. Let me start by giving you some lessons:

1. SK3 is neither a PDA nor a Smart Phone; it is a text messaging device/phone for both hearing capable and incapable people.

2. Motorola Q's internet package cost is higher than the skick3.

3. The treo's are discontinued and palm os is gone. Lynux is its replacement (I'm sure now you can see why treo's cannot compare to any device)

4. Sk3 is an international device, all the rest are not.

5. Sk3 is agronomical design for mass texting(hence its purpose)

6. SK3 does not heat up like your comparisons

7. Finally and most important; It is the most economical to maintain!

I hope you learned s...

Your a retard.. I never even posted this thread. And if you re-read my "REPLY" You"ll see that i gave it praise for what it is. I never said it was a smart phone or down graded the phone moron. I said price comparison to "WHAT IT IS GETTING COMPARED TO" ( read reviews stupid.) It seems as though the sidekick 3 would not be worth the money.. And i ended the response with its your decision. Next time read before responding.

Whoaaa......................big deal its a phone why are you getting so offended. And also, I dont think the people buying this care about the really high tech aspect of this i.e the resolution. I know i havent seen the phone yet and I know someone here is going to disagree with me and probably call me a retard and then say how crappy this phone is but I dont think the audience buying this phone really cares about how many megapixels the camera is or how the screen doesnt have an amazing resolution...big deal. They probably mainly care about its sweet flip screen into a QWERTY board and then also how its an mp3 player and then probably how you can surf the interent.

Paris has moved on to a blackberry Mark Cuban doesnt count. Have you ever heard of Marketing they pay those people to use their product to it can sell.That doesnt mean its the greatest phone its whats in style at the moment.

Atleast for me, I'm picking this up cause I can go from a PDA phone on VZW to a voice only phone on VZW and use my data on TMO saving close to 60 bucks a month...
