T-Mobile has pulled the HP 6315 Pocket PC phone off its shelves until HP releases a software update for the device. The carrier did not list specific problems that led to the sales halt, but since its release numerous Phone Scoop user reviews have complained of instability and bluetooth problems. T-Mobile confirmed that current 6315 owners will also receive the software upgrade to be installed on new devices. They also confirmed they will begin selling another HP Windows Mobile device in the 2nd quarter - the HP 6500 seems a likely candidate. It is also rumored T-Mobile has given Danger a July 1 deadline to fix software problems, specifically security issues, or else the carrier will pull the Sidekick devices from their stores as well.

So I'm guessing Sidekick's not the way to be?
And I thought I purchased the latest and greatest with the sidekick - pre - Paris Hilton and the hackers. What's next, and is T-Mobile going to support us as well as they are the PDA Phone users?

I tested this thing and it was buggy, had a horrible signal, and was EXTREMELY slow
Good For T-Mobile!

In an industry where manufacturers seem to have little regard for the problems of the end user it is refreshing to see a carrier stand up to them on behalf of their customers.
