Weird bug on Sidekick LX, anyone else?

Ever since the most recent OTA update, my phone occasionally stops displaying all text other than the first character on the line. Example, when I open a text message, all the first letters on each line display , but nothing else. I called T Mobile and they said they would call back in 2 hours, but they never did. =\

Only fix so far is restarting the phone...

ok so i plan on buying a sidekick soon
but one problem, i don't know which one i want
SLIDE: i like the color of the scarlet slide
and how sturdy the sliding mechanism feels
i don't know about the keyboard though
i'm a 17 yr old boy and i have pretty large fingers
and i like the overall shape of the slide
LX: LOVE the screen, great keyboard
like having a flash for the camera
(even though the camera sucks, slide's camera is better)
i don't really like how big it is
and how flimsy the swivel feels
also don't like that there is less internal
memory than the slide
and now that they are the same price
i'm really stuck!
(i would get the brown skLX absolutely hate blue)
any comments or suggestions would be great

I just got the sidekick and I want to customize its ringtone but have no ideas where to go. I've used a Dash, n pearl before and this LX is sorta confusing to navigate around.

slow aol email

I just got the sidekick lx and it takes way way longer to retieve my aol mail than it did on my sidekick 3. Anyone else having this problem? Also, does anyone know how to set up the phone so you can view videos on tiny tube?

As someone who runs a T-mobile kiosk in the middle of a shopping mall. Not only is it our most popular phone, but it's the pioneer of messaging phones. Why do you think all the other carriers started carrying messaging phones. Because the sidekick sales have been solid for going on 5 years all the way back to the orginal sidekick. T-mobile isn't stupid either they continue to keep interest level going by coming out with new models and improving the device. The sidekick ID is only $50 now making ita affordable to almost everyone.

hi.. so im 28 yrs old and dying to leave this whole blackberry world for a while... just want something new. Looking into the sidekick lx or slide.. question 1.. this is supposedly targeted for the "younger market" thinking teens... so am i too old for it.. lol serious question. 2nd question if i do opt to change to sidekick.. which one do i go for LX or slide.. i love the slide feature but the keyboard looks like it was made for a child playing with a toy. plus the keyboard isnt as comfy as the LX. The LX is bigger and bulkier yet looks more grown up and has a great keyboard and large screen. Ah what to do?!

V-Card only OPP Bluetooth profile?

Was looking at the specs for the phone, and it notes that OPP only works w/a V-Card... what does that mean exactly?

Reason I ask, I have a co-worker w/one of these phones that I'm trying to transfer files to (mp3's, etc), and I'm using a Cingular-based LG CU320 to no avail.

Any ideas on how this can be done? Thanks!

Is it still missing.....

these things that my Kick3 doesn't have:

Alarm Clock

Zoom for the camera

A case that will protect the #$%@ thing so it doesn't get all battered like the one I have (and I don't mean that black nerd pouch that it came with in the box).
