Possible Hiptop3 Boost Mobile Guide

Here is a little something worth sharing. Could it be another fake? Sure, but it seems good enough that I wanted to share, even if it's just a practical joke. The most interesting part is that if these docs are correct, the Sidekick 3 will launch on Boost Mobile, which is owned by Sprint/Nextel and targets the hip crowd that loves the Sidekick 3. The part that makes this unbelievable is that I don't think Danger has been working on a CDMA version of the Sidekick 3, they have only been GSM.

thoses intrctions are to big, the sidekick manual is small and the table of contents should have more stuff like airplane mode, MP3, etc

i think thats juust a bunch of bs. how would they fit the button that all boost moblies phones have (the one that makes that cherp sound when they press it to radio someone)?

FAKE!!!!, Why would they put the sk3 with sprint, now that means it I would have a walkie talkie, chirp feature. None of the previous documents said it before. If the sk2 goes anywhere, it will most likely be cingular, and I doubt that, It doesn't even look legit, I call a fake... (jaypea)

Someone can't spot an obvious fake I think. Common, you can actually see the photoshop work on the last picture .

i agree... the last photo is edited so terribly, that it looks like they pulled it off in MS Paint

There does seem to be something going on between Sprint/Nextel and Danger?

"We can confirm that Danger has made an agreement with Sprint..."

Guys,

You are overlooking the most obvious of all explanations...

Boost Mobile is evaluating the addition of the Hiptop 3 to its produt line and this is a customized manual that came along with test units for Boost Mobile staff to evaluate.

Of course Danger wants to expand its carrier coverage.

"What is airplane mode? "

Airplane mode is a mode that turns off the wireless radio (the signal) this allows you to use all of the other features on the device except the ones that use network service (calls, messaging, and internet will not be available)

why would danger do anything with boost mobile, boost mobile is the pre paid service of nextel . none of this makes sense it has to be fake.

Airplane mode is to let you use your Mp3 player as you're on the plane, you know, how people have to turn off their cell phones, for like frequency problems... or something. They had this on the RAZR V3i

Again, why does it say USB 1.1? I'm not filling a 1gig MiniSD card with USB 1.1. I think BLUETOOTH would be faster...

 
At 3:31 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

it probably is fake because it really isnt that hard to fake....looks more like a dinner menu then an instruction manual....also notice that it is only like 3 pages

some people have way too much time on their hands...

And, since Boost Mobile is using the Nextel's network, they're not even CDMA, Nextel's network is iDen and Sprint is CDMA.

could it be airport like the apple computers use?

You can plug the card directly into a miniSD adapter into 2.0 USB on your computer!?

SK3 is bigger size. I had SK II last year. It was problem with heavy, larger size, and broke double. I gave up that bought SK2. ZOOOOM I bought new blackberry pager. Because it is too tiny size.

1.) No.

2.) Danger has not announced its release date yet.

So do any of you people read anything else anyone has read before asking a question? Stop needing things handed to you and do a TINY bit of research on your own first?

Danger has been testing CDMA versions of their devices for years. It's not difficult to put a different radio in. They have obviouslly pitched their devices to multiple carriers in the US and other markets. To say that the hiptop is GSM only simply based on what's currently available is short-sighted.
