how old is too old for a sidekick?


Dec 18, 2007, 4:19 AM
what would be a good age to stop at? or is there no age.

i feel like the sidekick is a poormans version of a smartphone/blackberry. anyone agree?

Well I'm 31 and I just bought a Sidekick Slide. I had the option of buying the Blackberry Pearl at the same price but opted for the Slide instead. Why? I love the QWERTY keyboard...and all the other features! The only thing that I see looks 'kiddish' is the phone's color--black and purple. I wish Motorola offered more than 1 color option so that users of all ages can pick a Slide that best suite their "personality" ...and not age Very Happy

So if I were what you like and not bother about what critics say about 'which phone for which age group" Smile Be cool and good luck... Cool

I agree, I had the option of a Blackberry - price wasn't an issue - and I liked the Slide better.
I like sliders and I like QWERTY, it was perfect.

Hiii... funny I was about to post a question like this... I'm actually 28 yrs old and am dying for a change from the blackberry system I've had for 2 yrs. I want the full fledge sideways keyboard and considering getting a sidekick.. Supposedly they are targeted for the "younger" market like teens I guess.. So I feel stupid getting one.. How old really is too old for a sidekick? Good for you that you got one and you dont give a hoot.. all the power to ya

well 28 is good for a sk... i mean is not tht bad if u get it

well now the question is does it really matter who gets what now? SK is targeted for heavy texters, so kids will tend to pick up on this.
NOW, BB are the new hot phones on the market, and kids these days are using BB similar to a sidekick. now since everyone has a BB, im going out to get a SK Slide. BB service is too pricey for me anyway
