Motorola Sidekick Slide
I love my side kick slide, I have had it for awhile now, its slim, easy to carry around in your pocket, its not to balky, the screen is big and bright, i love the full keyboard, but i don't like that the buttons are so small, i wear nails, and its difficult to text, other than that the web browsing is good, it could be a little bit faster though. But all and all it a really good phone to have.
~Love The Big Screen
~Easy To Figure Out
~Love The Track Ball
~Camera Is Blurry
~Cant Figure Out How To Put Ring Tones On It!
~Everyonce In Awhile It Turns Off By Its Self And Erases Everything!
~The Keys Are Hard And Small
But Over All Its A Great Phone,
Now I Wish I Could Figure Out How to Put Some
Good Ring tones On It, Besides The T-Mobile Ones! But If You Are Looking For A Good Phone, To Text On And Web Browsing, I Recomend You Get This Phone! :)
It was alright,
I have now had the T-Mobile SIdekick Slide for a year. I am a teenage girl, and I found it not terrible, but not great. First of all, do not get it from the T-Mobile Prepaid plan, if you do this, you have no picture messaging if you like to send pictures. On the other hand, the service was excellent. I had gotten all 5 service bars mainly everywhere. The battery life needs work. I text for about 6 straight hours a day, and my battery probably lasted 5 hours on full charge. I would recommend this phone to someone who isn't expecting to use their phone constantly, and possibly someone who is getting their first phone, just as a good starting point. Hope I could help!

It was good until the 5 month mark
When I found out I was getting this phone I was super excited! I mean a SIDEKICK! Every1 in the TV world has one! I truly liked this phone... then it started getting annoying
Pros: Good full QWERTY keyboard, clear sound, bright screen, long battery life
Cons: No video capturing abilities (at least not any I know of), bulky, no cool swivel :(, OK service if you're in a good area, freezes up, only 1 game comes with the phone, deletes contacts randomly (you need to save them all to Sim card so they don't get lost), not much background variety
So yes it was a good phone until about 5 months later when I started comparing to my friend's phones in school and realizing how little it came with and it started to malfunction.
Long story short: I would NOT recommend this phone
WORST PHONE I EVER HAD!!!
All i have to say worst phone i have ever had in my life. the battery doesn't last long at all i have a full bar in the morning and 2 hours later the battery is going dead when i don't even do anything on it. it freezes alot. and resets it self alot lost all my information and the screen turns white alot. the worst phone ever!!
The slide, deserve more credit
Just purchased two weeks ago and i love this phone, compared to my touch diamond, Palm treo 800w, this is a user friendly phone that anyone can use. Slide action much better then swivel.
brite screen and colors
good picture quality
excellent volume level
very good music player
great texting phone
small keypad for some
no flash for camera
no 3.5 headphone jack
looking for a user friendly phone that's small and compact with great texting features the sidekick slide is the phone for you.
Best Sidekick Ever!
The best sidekick ever in my opinion. Durable and slick design. Favorite phone I ever owned (sorry I got rid of it).
The only reason I don't give it a 5 is the raised keypad and it does freeze up fairly often.
-Slide design is solid and durable
-Great features and shortcuts
-Excellent interface with easy access
-Suggestive dialing and text
-Great app marketplace selection (although not the apple or android market)
-MP3 sound quality is great
-Web surfing very decent
-SD expandable memory slot
-Great battery life
-Freezes from time to time. Upon reconnect it will download all SMS messages again overloading your inbox
-Kind of big
-Although I said the app store is nice it is not quite the android or apple marketplace
-Raised keypad (not a big fan)
its okay i guess....
okay so i just got this phone yesterday ive done it all on it... i mean it is the best phone i ever had but its not good enough.
pros: great keyboard (it may seem small for others like guys or girls with nails)
-its not bulky and big smaller than the lx
-trackball makes things faster
-when you get a message the phone talks to you and tells you new message
-the calculator calculates tip
cons: no alarm
- cant put a ringtone from your music player
-the battery sucks for a person that texts alot
-camera 1.3 sucks
-it doesn't have simple things like simple other phones
-no radio (i need one)
overall i don't really recommend this phone unless u can see past all the cons... and the lx is the same thing only that it has a flashlight and its bigger so i recommend none go buy like a blackberry
i like this phone a lot, its simple to use and looks really nice. I was worried at first as this is my first sidekick and im 23 years old i thought it might look childish but its really a good phone.
pros: Not to big (kinda big) but a lot smaller than a LX
loud speaker phone
nice clear internet
easy to use
you have to record your own songs in order to have your own ringtone
i find it difficult to put the memory card in
no video and 1.3 meg pix is weak
could do with more games
people complain about the keyboard buttons but i find it ok to use. Overall a great phone.
I have the phone myself and when I first got it I was thrilled. But about a month in a half I started to see that I couldn't do a lot of things I did with my other phones. I would say the pros are nice look, web browsing is okay, and the cons ringtones 5 seconds long, I had to order a alarm clock and calculator, and certain things I can't do.
This is one of my favorite phones on TMO! I'm a HUGE motorola fan as is, so I thought I'd give this one a try.
The screen could be bigger, but overall this phone is great if you're looking for a sidekick with most sidekick features, but not the pricy tag that comes with it, like for the LX.
Call quality great, SPEAKER FABULOUS! Music player great, menus EASY to use, battery pretty decent for a sidekick even with heavy internet use, ringer is loud, phone is solid (dropped it a few times and still working great!), texting SUPER EASY, easy to link email accounts!
I think the only con I can think of is that it takes AWHILE to start up, very rarely will it freeze, and all four corners of the phone don't light up like the LX.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this phone to first time sidekick users...oldschool sidekick users MAY like this phone too, but probably the LX would appeal to you more.
