Hello everyone, I just bought me the Sidekick 3 from T-Mobile and I am really enjoying it. I had the Motorola W490, there is not anything wrong with it I just wanted a new phone so that I can text easier. I know the Sidekick 3 has been out for a while but I was just wondering has anyone else had it before or know of anyone that has had one?

I have a Samsung Alias, which I enjoy, but would LOVE to get a sidekick. I just can't afford the costs involved. Texting and such is far easier on the sidekick as I've played on them before, but never have I been able to really get into it, but I can get addicted a little bit too, so it's good for me to avoid the kinds of things that really can get me hooked!

I got my Sidekick off of Ebay it took me a minute to find one that wasn't pricey but I found one.

I had the sidekick 3 before. I call it the teenager phone. It's real good for text messaging. when I 1st brought it, I loved it because my computer was down at the time, so it gave me the use of email and internet. After a few months, I noticed it wasn't really that good for a phone. Plus I don't think too highly of T-mobile's phone service. A few of my friends had T-mobile and they didn't care for it either. The sidekick is a good device if you like to text alot. I have switched back to ATT. I have a Motorola Q9h, which has a keypad and better web browsing. I think I'm gonna end up getting the Iphone. I mostly use my phones for texting and the internet, and the Iphone has the best web browser. The sidekick had the best and biggest keypad. I like it because all the buttons have their own keys. Like you don't have to hold down the shift button to type a number or a symbol that's assigend to another key. It's like having a small laptop in your hands. If the web browser was on the 3g network, maybe it would be better.

Well my dog ate my daughter's mobile this morning!! Silly puppy! So she is in the market for a new one to replace it so we will look at the Sidekick on your recommendation.
