Sidekick Killer!!


Nov 11, 2008, 4:08 PM
Specwise, this phone beats up on the Sidekick pretty good.

Touch Screen

Yes and somewhat cheaper then a Sidekick service plan.

T-Mobile is destroying their SK castle
there's NO reason why it cost $25 from 20, but downgrade text from unlimited to 400

It still is $20 for the unlimited texting, internet, and e-mail FYI, If someone currently has a Sidekick already, they don't have to worry about the price going up. I'm not sure why you're complaining, because I'm not sure if you realize that at AT&T, the complete Data and Unlimited Messaging bundle is a total of $35. Yes the Sidekick will be going up in price to $35 as well. The $25 package you're talking about is for people who want unlimited access to internet and e-mail but don't text as much. I believe $25 is a great price, its what it was before! At T-Mobile, if you break it down, the messaging bundles are from 400/$4.99, 1000/$9.99, and unlimited/$14.99. Also, the unlimited internet and e-mail for PDAs is $19.99 currently. T-Mobile is...

Ummm, this is NOT a smart phone, so the SideKick beats this phone 10-fold. Very Happy

and well, neither is side kick...and if i'm not mistaken the sidekick has never released a touch screen model. and uh o yea...the special "sidekick pack" thats required w/ a side kick is nothing more than a texting pack. if its a manditory upgrade...shouldn't it apply to say something more than a messaging phone? at least with a blackberry you get access to something more than texting

I'm not sure if you knew this or not, but the Sidekick Package is not "more than a texting pack". It is a COMPLETE bundle of unlimited texting, internet, and e-mail. All for $19.99. Just thought I'd fill you in. Smile

Yeah but no 3g, no gps.

The SideKick has a full browser. A touch screen is just a physical feature. Why would a user really need that when a BlackBerry doesn't have one (except for the new Storm for Verizon). The SideKick is larger and has more programs than just the texting and IMs that the QuickFire has.
Happy Hour
