Web surfing on the sidekick 3 is impressive at first because web pages load much faster than the previous model. However, some larger pages such as that from this blog site cannot even be loaded. The screen just froze. And if the site does load, the device ran out of memory, causing only a portion of the page to be loaded. I don't see this problem on the sidekick 2.

The AIM and MSN messenger log in to my account automatically when I powered up the device. Yahoo messenger still requires me to log in manually every time...which is no big deal but it's just a hassle.

I have the screen problem with my sk2 sometimes, you have to press x and get out of the web browser and then go back into it from the jump menu, it usually works for me but maybe it's different on the sk3?

I found out that alot of applications and games that I purchased with the sidekick 2 were no where to be found in the catalog of the sidekick 3!!!

Everything that I purchased previously had to be downloaded again and reinstalled MANUALLY. The catalog only has a few games and apps.

And Terminal is no where to be found!!!

Here is a list of the games and apps available in the catalog as of this posting:

APPS:

i711 Wireless
Calculator
Flashcards
Message Sentinel
MoneyClip 2.0
Sidesheet

GAMES:

10 Pin!
Ace It!
Beatdown Boxing
Bob
Bomb Mania
Boulder Dash Sidekick Edition
Cheshire Checkers
Cheshire Chess
Classic Snake DX
Cluster Buster
Fast Food Mayhem
Hearts
Navy Commander
Peg Solitaire
Picture Shuffle
PumpJack
Reversi Challenge
Rowbot

As you can see, alot of apps and games available on the sidekick 2 is missing from the sidekick 3.

So my story is this... I live in Southern California approx 30 minutes from the T Mobile store which released the new SideKick 3.. I left my house at 12:00AM, the morning of the release. My Plan was to camp out like the many out there had planned to do, I was a good 5 minutes away when I reach for my wallet.. My desperate hands searched violently for my LV wallet that should be in my satchel. If you haven’t guessed already, I'll let you in on the reason I had to drive all the way home and was so frustrated, I didn’t camp out. I left my wallet at home! :(

Angry, I went to bed that night and decided to leave early in the morning to beat the infamous So Cal traffic. I left my house at 6AM and didn’t get to the store until 9:30AM. This is what its like to drive in commuting Southern California traffic. I stood in line and waited a total of 4 hours for my beauty.

The one thing I completely dislike about the phone is the fact that it feels like a hunk of plastic. Its so.. rough, edgy.. there was a sense of smoothness while I worked on my SK2.. and from the plastic keys on the keyboard to the clunky slide of the screen.. the phone leaves me feeling lifeless.. a small hindrance which will easily escape to the back of my mind as I listen to the awesome music and play with the cool track ball... I love my SK3!!!!!

For one of the lucky ones with a SKIII, can u plz tell me if they still have one of the 2 defects?? 1. does the dialing while on speakerphone work right, or is it still retarded? when you would dial with the SKII on speakerphone, it'd push the # twice, etc. 2. Can you still dial or push numbers, like if ur on 3 way or more with someone, b/c b 4 it wouldnt work when you tryed to dial prompts on 3 way??? thanks

I don't like how theb main buttons like menu, jump, etc. aren't lite up. They are so hard to see. I meen even though you should know where they are it is still hard. Also, I have to redownload all of my games and I don't know how to do that. So I gotta go call t-mobile now.

Here are things I really want/need:

BT communications like with computer, GPS reciever, headphones (not headset for phone only).

Ability to save emails/attachemnts to the miniSD

Ability to sync EMAILS (not just contacts and that stuff)

The buttons are smaller, on the side, that's ok but the ones for like to take pictures is more or less BEHIND the LCD screen harder to reach/locate now that they are even smaller and sunk in.

The overall design seems more plasticky with this round, don't know if I like the new keys.

For the love of god Danger, enable OBEX for bluetooth. I don't like having to USB my cellphone to dump pictures off, that's seriously a pain. Also, USB 2.0 connectivity wouldve done wonders for the SD card transfer rate.

Given all of this negative feedback, I probably would NOT have spent $400+ on this upgrade except for the fact that my SK2 screen was cracked and annoying as hell to use. At least I added the insurance this time. I could have paid less with a contract extension but the way I was treated by TMo when my screen cracked made me think about switching carriers. The SK3 is the only thing that kept me with them. Depending on how it goes with the new SK3 (today!) I still may get a Blackberry 8700c and switch to Cingular.

So those of you that already have your SK3s, did you have to repurchase any of the ringtones, applications, games, you already bought for your SK2? Or did you just have to reinstall it at no cost?

No AOL? How is this possible?
Also, every other app that I had purchased is not currently available. Even my ringtones! What is the reason for cutting down the catalog by 60-70%?

 
At 10:39 AM, Anonymous dbla921 said...

After I registered as a returning user.. a pop up apeared talking about how I could download the applications I previously purchased at no charge..

..So I'm assuming based off that pop up on my phone, that I will NOT have to rebuy all the apps I had before.. The problem is.. none of the apps I had before are in the catalogue..

This is in response to one of the questions about rebuying or redownloading.. They were not preloaded based of my account, I have to redownload.. but again.. catalogue is pretty much empty compaired to SK2.. I'm sure this'll be fixed with time.. perhaps by July 10th...

idk if i haven't figured it out yet, but i wish i could make the songs i put into my music player, as ringtones for the phone itself.

it'll take a while to get used to the main 4 buttons being so far from the corners...

other than that, i like it.

 
At 11:03 AM, Anonymous Marc said...

I don't have the phone yet, but my one single recommendation, for the safety and convenience of its users...

The Sidekick 3 needs to support Voice Dialing tags... ESPECIALLY having enabled us with Bluetooth headset... I'm thinking that with all the potential of the miniSD card serving as memory, it'll just take a OTA firmware upgrade to make this possible!

 
At 11:27 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

has anyone figured out a way to make mp3s as ringtones?

I know you can do that on the mda.

 
At 11:29 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

To me the SK3 feels delicate compared to the SK2. Like it was cheaply made and not as durable. I'm scared to just plop it down. I have to set it down carefully.
The shoulder buttons are harder to locate. I have to look for them instead of just feeling for them. And when you flip the screen open it just doesn't feel as sturdy as the SK2.
But it is is slimmer and I think looks much cooler. Overall, I like it a lot!

Heads up to the people asking about making mp3s ringtones..

... at the moment you can't make that happen.. and to be honest.. as Cheap as Tmobile is.. it prolly wont.. they'll lose all revinue from the over priced ringtones bought in the catalogue...

 
At 2:23 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

i don't like the speaker...it's worse than the sk2..even at max level, the sound is softer.

i also don't like the swivel screen. The sk2 screen turned very smoothly...this sk3 screen hits the keys as it swings up and down and i can hear this plastic clickety sound..

The button on the top right is behind the screen and this makes it hard to locate it under soft lighting. I guess I can get used to it later.

The top and bottom of the screen is not really flush with the side of the case and is so...sharp and edgy..

I thought that one of the features on this would be the ability to increase the size of my mailbox or at least save messages to the card, but I can't figure out how to do either, and they're not mentioned in the manual. Is this really possible or was this vaporware?

 
At 2:57 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

I saw somewhere in the manual that reads you can save anything on the sd card but the sk3 can only read music and photo files.

even though the sk3 is under people's expectation, it's still a good device to use...especially since data usage is unlimited. I don't think you can have such a great plan using the mda.

Concerning that pop-up about the ringtones, games, programs, etc being purchased on the sk2 avail for the sk3 for free, i'm guessing the catalog isn't fully downloaded yet because the sk3 hasn't been released to everyone yet. that's my guess. lets just wait until july 10th?

For that question about the price.. The Sk3 is $300 witha 2-year contract, and $350, for a 1 year [I think].

I just got mine today (ordered at 11pm CT Tuesday). Some initial thoughts:

-A major bummer that none of the applications seem to have been updated. The email application is exactly the same, still missing simple concepts like "check every x minutes."

-The screen flipping is definitely flimsier. It feels like the unit doesn't fit together quite right and there is a lot of nosie when opening the screen (no, my unit isn't broken). The SK2 screen was much more precisely fit.

-Previously downloaded apps can be redownloaded for free (so the text says), but the apps are mostly missing from the catalog (the terminal, pirhana). Seems like a lots few useful applications and more games. The SK3 is no gaming machine.

-As others have pointed out, TMobile has forced users to buy ringtones, greedy b*ast*rds.

-You have to remove the back in order to change the sd card and the included card is pretty useless (a paltry 64MB), forcing you to buy something bigger.

-USB1.1 instead of 2

-It's swell that you can use the old chargers, but the charger does not insert all the way, making it seem like you need to force it in farther... but don't do it.

-The keys are smaller and the plastic is definitely less appealing and useful than the SK2's nice rubber keys. Not any more "clicky" though.

-No rubber bumpers. There's no way to customize your SK3 (aside from the Beverly Hills Ghetto bling). I miss the nice feel of the rubber bumpers.

All in all, it'll be nice to have something faster and that probably makes the SK3 worth the money for me. But it's no slam dunk and Danger really missed an opportunity to take a huge step forward. The SK3 is just a baby step.

At 6:40 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

I liked the rubber keys from the SK2 but after typing on the SK3 with the hard plastic keys, I like the plastic keys better. I type faster and the feel is better and there is a smooth transition from key to key compare to the SK2 where there wasn't a smooth transition.

i hate that there is bluetooth and yet no way to sync up my contacts, calendar, and email with my computer... it should be so simple - there should be a sync feature that makes my computer and my sidekick share data...

also - there were not enough apps availible at launch - i don't even have my alarm clock program.

i hate the menus that require you to choose organizer and then notes, so it takes longer to write something down when you need to.

other than that its exactly what i expected.

I wish the PIM was more robust. I'd like to synch with Outlook 2003, but I have a lot of info there, and feel it would be too much for the Sidekick to handle. That's why I still use a separate PDA for calendar, contacts, notes, etc.

I just bought a Treo 700p from Verizon about a week ago. I was a sidekick 2 user before. For the money, the Treo 700p blows the new sidekick away. It can play video that was emailed to me, it can play any video I dump on it just like an ipod video. I can also stream video from sites like Comedy Central. The same goes for photos and music. I was really debating getting another sidekick but now after reading how cheap the new version sounds, I'm glad I went with the Treo. Just wanted to give my 2cents for those of you still thinking if you should get the sidekick 3.

I feel like TMo took more away than the gave me with the SK3.

I do like the form factor but I'm disappointed that they couldn't do more with the screen. When I look at the 18 months or so that have passed since the SK2, I can't help but wonder WHY??? In the fast paced world of mobile electronics, Danger/TMo can't afford half-assed upgrades.

The camera is so-so. Internal storage seems to have been reduced but the addition of the SD card storage is a plus.

The trackball is quite nice. But the loss of functionality (downloaded apps are what really made my SK2 super-useful) negates the hardware improvements. The keyboard is actually a lot better. The tactile feel is nice and it is likely to hold up far better over time.

The standard applications remain largely unchanged which seems to contradict the assertion that the catalog is empty because the other applications aren't compatible. Although the introduction of the trackball navigation probably has something to do with it.

The Music Player IS Music Player. I'm not sure why people keep referring to it as Sonic Boom. It's OK but it might be better with some visualizations.

Snow Bored is still there so that's a huge plus and also indicates how little change there is to the OS.

Bluetooth is a plus but I haven't had a chance to try a BT headset yet.

My recommendation if you have a perfectly working SK2 is to keep it. Wait for the next generation hardware. When Danger moved from the SK1 to the Color SK, I waited and was rewarded with the SK2. The SK3 is really no more than the Color SK in terms of its evolution from the previous model.

I'll keep mine, but I'm glad I didn't sign a 2 year agreement to get my hands on it because I'll probably swith to a Blackberry and a carrier with better national coverage.

I think I'm going to get a Treo 700p from Sprint. It is only $100 more than the Sidekick, but less monthly for a voice & data plan. $50 for T-mobile $45 for Sprint. Sprint's data is much faster and Sprint has unlimited weeknights after 7PM on their voice plan.

I can't believe how disappointed everyone is with the Sidekick 3. It seems like Sharp/Danger/Tmobile really dropped the ball. Aside from the trackball (which seems like an awesome addition & should be on every web browsing device) and the MP3 player they haven't made any big improvements.

Go with the treo 700p. If you have Tivo you can watch your recorded shows on it. It seams like Danger just rushed to get something into the market until they can come in with a device that can really compete with all the new phones out there.

 
At 12:26 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

EDGE data, Bluetooth, SD Card slot, 1.3MP camera, and an mp3 player are not cutting edge features. The technology in the Sidekick 3 is about 12-18 months late.

The trackball is really the only unique addition to the Sidekick that is cutting edge. Granted the Sidekick already had a lot going for it like the keyboard, IM clients, multi-tasking, and server based data storage, so I guess the upgrades to the 3 is just enough to keep the phone relevant. Unfortunately I don't think it's enough to justify the price. The Sidekick 3 would make more sense at $250 rather than $400.

After reading these posts, I decided to return my SK3. The negatives seem to far outweigh the few positives. I was greatly disappointed to read that the Time Traveler application is not available for download. I use that everyday. I spoke to a Sidekick III specialist at T-Mobile who said that it will not be available in the near future, if at all, because of the upgraded processor in the SK 3. A new program has to be written.

The other big thing that disappointed me was that you cannot use mp3s as ringtones. The SK 3 specialist said that mp3 ringtones WILL DEFINITELY NOT be offered as an option with any future OTAs.

I am disappointed to return it.

How many people posting here previously posted something to the effect of "I can't wait!"

I raise my hand.

Now that it's here, I could have waited. There's nothing specifically wrong with it. It's just that it doesn't live up to the hype, the wait, or the expectations. Feels more like a rebadged SK2 with a trackball than what should have been an SK3.

I don't like the fact that everything I paid for such as ringtones etc aren't moved to my new sdk3.The volume isn't as loud as I thought it would be. The loading of certain pages freezes up the screen and certain sites won't even open. I upgraded because I thought the phone would be much better,when in reality whats the big difference? I guess having mp3 on it because eveything else seems the same to me. I'm not happy at all with this phone

 
At 4:39 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

In defense of Danger I will say that their OS upgrades are usually pretty major and add huge features. The shift to a new processor may make the Sidekick 3 not seem like it's well tuned, but I know that when Danger finishes recoding their software and tools for Sidekick 3 it will be a major improvement over Sidekick 2. The cost of being an early adopter of new technology especially ones that do major processing changes like this is that you have to deal with some early bugs and annoyances.

My two huge pet peeves about the SK3 that I get better reception/signal with SK2 than the SK3 at my house. And the web browser doesn't always work. I seem to get 3 dots much more than G than on the sk2.

Hi Everyone

Listen were all having the same problem with the 2 dots. no browser connection, aim takes 10 and 1/2 hours to sgn in. I thought i was the only one but i see others have the same problem.

Listen everyone, dont return it YET***
because theyre just starting everything and who knows what can happen in a week. Dont do anything stupid YET.

I was gonna return mine but i dont want to regret it. i think whoever has a SK2 shud use it for now and keep the 3 on the side for now. Till t-mobile realeses more info about it.

Hey guys I just want to know your opinion on whether or not I should buy an SK2 or SK3? I'm signing a new contract w/ T-mobile. IDK what to do, so many ppl are complaining about the SK3 that I'm starting to doubt whether or not I should get it. Any Comments are welcome. 8-)

the thing is i dont think someone can really hate the sidekick 3 unless theyve had a sidekick 2 so all you people saying stop hating on it and get another phone, uve obviously never had a sidekick 2 because after reading all these comments, i hardly want a 3. i lost my sidekick 2 in mid april when they stopped selling it and my only option was to wait for the sidekick 3, which i do not want to get so thank you everybody for your input

 
At 10:32 PM, Anonymous Francesca said...

I agree with the person who said that the SK3 didn't live up to the hype or price (to me). Not being able to convert my MP3's into ringtones sort of blows. I cannot stand the background, the characters look very juvenile (yes, I am aware that this mobile is targeted towards a young demographic, but come on, we're not all 12-15 years old) and the fact that I can't customize the background also blows. The screen is a disappointment, pretty washed out. The camera is subpar. It's exterior looks and feels sort of cheap. The speaker phone volume is not very loud at all, even at maximum. Everytime I turn it on I get a screen that says "Waiting for Activation" and I've called TMo and they confirmed that my account is activated, so it's just frustrating to have to press menu+L just to make a call or text. I purchased the Data Plan and my SK3 still won't connect to the web. After being passed on to a bunch of Customer Serv. Reps. and waiting for about an hour just to get passed on again, I am now pretty much disillusioned with my SK3. Although there are a couple of things that I do like about the SK3, like the Bluetooth addition, the keyboard (very well spaced out with a nice smooth feel) and the trackball (nifty little thing, I'm quite fond of the colors). All in all, I can't help but feel that the SK3 was rushed out, rather than a vast improvement/upgrade of its predecessor. I am willing to give it a couple more days, but I have a gut-wrenching feeling that I will return it.

I called the T-Mobile customer care tonight, they said that the web browser is a known issue and it should be resolved within 5-6 hours.

i know the pics looks shitty on the sk3 but if you upload them to ur comp they look a lot better. i have a verizon samsung phone with a 1.3 megapixel camera and the pics look about the same when i comepare them on my comp. it would be nice if the screen was better on the sk3 though.

SUPER HUGE LET DOWN

JUST REALIZED THAT THE SK3 IS NOT AN INTERNATIONAL PHONE

the sk3 is NOT triband

WHAT THE FUCK

returning it TODAY for the MDA where you CAN make mp3s as ringers - the network WORKS and it is TRIBAND

the sk3 is a laughable excuse for a "step up" when its actually a HUGE step back.

i say boycott the damn sk3 - everyone who has it and doesnt like it - RETURN IT.

i am super pissed.

 
At 1:49 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

my initial thought.

its a sidekick 1.5

its not a sidekick 2.3 - 2.5 - whatever,

its a different take on the sidekick 2. and they took more away then they gave to you

the internet is supossedly faster (however as those who have it know - the sk3 webbrowser is DOWN until saturday or sunday).

so - i cant really test the internet.

it seems faster in general - things dont lag as much.

its a smaller handheld - so the buttons are smaller and less accessable. no big deal - as with any phone give that time and you dont even have to look to type or answer or whatever.


about it feeling more "flimsy" - its about the same - its just more of a shiny plastic that makes more of a clicking sound then the previous matte plastic and rubber keys.

when i first charged it - it said "battery 358%"

obviously - not a good sign - but directly after it said 80.

it works.

its faster.


is it worth it?

no.


if you have a sidekick 2 - KEEP IT! dont upgrade to another version of a sidekick 2 with NO RINGERS - APPS - GAMES - etc.

also - there will NOT be a program or a way to make your mp3s into ringtones as with the MDA.


so bottom line - sidekick 3 = sidekick 2 with less features.

not worth the upgrade

wait for the new sidekick they will be releasing this winter.

also

one last thing

the sk3 is NOT AN INTERNATIONAL PHONE

unlike the sidekick three - it is NOT TRIBAND.

it will not work in europe.


so for those who tour - dont get it.


personally i think this is a laughable excuse for a "step up"

when in actuality its a HUGE step down from the sk2.


my suggestion - anyone who already has it - return it - get pissed.

im getting the MDA.

ARE YOU KIDDING, you guys are so stupid, of course it is a world phone, it is triband, look at the specs on t-mobile.com! i hate how people make the phone look bad to people who dont have it yet when they are COMPLETELY WRONG

 
At 5:44 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

NO it is not triband, it has 3 frequencies but one of those is a Tmobile only frequency so no, it is not a real triband, effectively it only has 2 frequencies, Stupido

 
At 7:34 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

What is a TMO only frequency? There is no such thing.

In Europe GSM started with 900mhz (yes GSM also started as such in Europe) then later on they addedd 1800mhz in larger metropols to be able to add channels. The Sk3 is an 850/1800/1900 phone, where the 1800 is the only NON US spec frequency. Yes its a TRIBAND (any phone with three freq is a "TRIBAND") the fact that it uses an somewhat unusual combination of frequencies does NOT make it "not a triband" though.

Do you travel much to Europe with your SKs? Why is it so essential for you to have 900mhz?

 
At 8:31 AM, Anonymous Chris said...

Jesus, the sidekick 3 is TRIBAND. It supports 850/1900/1800MHz. Both 850MHz and 1900MHz are in North America. 1800MHz is in Asia and Europe. Accept the fact! MDA isn't even triband, it's QUADBAND. It supports 850/1900/1800/900 which will work in a little more countries, I guess.

I said yesterday that my web browser wasnt working and i know alot of people are having troubles too but they must have fixed the problem. I woke up today and decided to test it out again and WOW!! This phone is fast. Most sites are up and loaded fully within 10 seconds. Sometimes less. It blows the SK2 away.

"It supports 850/1900/1800/900 which will work in a little more countries, I guess. "

There really is no country differences between 900 and 1800. the 900 is the base GSM network (excluding North America) and 900 will work everywhere (exc. NA) where there is GSM, only in some larger metropols you are better off with 1800, as the GSM network is so cramped that you might not be able to use the 900 very "well" in peak hours and such due to it being so busy the 1800 was put in place to take care of this in more busy cities and/or events.

This web browser being down sucks, but it sounds like they will fix it.

This business about a lot of the apps not being available, not good. Anyone call tmobile to see how long it will take danger to port those apps? One of the main reasons I have this phone is the terminal client. If the fix is in the works, good, I will just hold off on putting my sim card in. If that app isn't going to be available period, I will be selling my 3.

I have heard mixed reviews on the keyboard, may have to see for myself.

I was pretty concerned when I found out that the Download Catalog didn't have most of the apps I had on my Sk2. And I'm not talking about just Ringtones/Games (I can survive without those). In particular, the apps listed under "personal productivity". Anyway, I wrote Danger and this is what they responded:
"Danger and its third party developers are working hard to make updated versions of OS v2.3 applications available for OS v3.0. Please understand that this effort is in place and all parties are working hard to accelerate the porting process.

Certain business-critical applications, such as Terminal and Time Traveler, are indeed in the porting process and are being moved along as quickly as possible."

So I guess that means its "on its way". I just hope sooner than later. I can't help from wondering why they couldn't get all this settled before the release...

Let me tell all of you, I am veeery glad what all of you didn't like SK3. Why? I didn't plan buying new SK3 yet! Also,I have been color SK user have problem with stuck wheeltrack and frozen three dots dances and catalog veeeery limit and looong wait "X" antanna won't work... Soo.. What I read your saying about between SK2 and SK3 are same and not enough louder.

MY SK2's problem is "X" won't appear the antanna. I decided go to see saleman at the T-Mobile store. I talked with guy about what's happened the antanna won't work. I allow the guy check on my color SK. He informs me that my SIM card is doing fine.... I puzzle it.

He did recommoned me a discussion about Blackberry 8700. I want being honestly with you. I bought new brand BlackBerry 8700 is much better than SK3!!! you know why?? this blackberry 8700 can downlaod more applications as unlimit, speaker is very powerful louder, web browser is great. desktop theme and wallpaper what you want. YOU can put your own family picture downlaod to BlackBerry 8700 use that wallpaper!! AND IT CAN PUT GPS NAVIGATION! I am verry sorry and feel bad for all of you complian about SK3 is not satified. I total understand. well. I am happy with my new BlackBerry 8700. I beleive that BlackBerry of the company want to beat SK3. I assume it.

Well they seem 2 have resolved the web browsing problems. Mine seems zippier today. Mine will still NOT link up with my bluetooth headset (which works fine with my tmo sony T610), so that sux.

You know what I find funny about this all:
1. You already knew the features that were gonna be on the sidekick 3. You already knew that there would be ringtone problems. You already knew that everything wouldn't be perfect. I think you should be in a developer's shoes for a day and see how difficult it is to make a great phone when your customers are hounding you down for a new product. Creating applications are very difficult processes. They have to be continually tested over and over. You already knew that T-Mobile was gonna mess up. This is how its always been so why are you so surprised. You try exchanging everyone's information and their frequencies on there phones when there are about 20,000 people calling at one time. Patience is a virtue. I Don't Like How People Are Disrespecting the Sidekick 3 but they know it has the best Instant Messenger and browsers. And for those who didnt know, the MDA and SDA are open to viruses, glitches, and easy breakdowns and the internet is slower than the sidekick 2. The blackberry is gigantic and clunky and you better hope it doesnt drop or your in for some trouble. If you want a deluxe system, buy a laptop with voice calling.

The Sidekick 3 is HOTTTTT!!! BUY IT!
Everyone needs a sidekick.

Might I add, the same people who are going to return their sidekicks will be the same ones on the sidekick 4 blogspot waiting for it to drop.

If your not pleased with ur shyt.... BUILD YOUR OWNNN!!!!!!!!

No, this doesn't mean I will be returning it...I love the damn device. Just wanted to point that out.

my main problems today

after an OVERNIGHT charge - i unplugged it to 80% charge

it quickly dropped to 50 - then to 20.

stayed at 20% for about 6 hours.


what the hell.


also it is - at its loudest - not loud at all.

i miss calls, texts, etc.

its vibrate is less intense then the sk2 - which when in loud situations - you will miss calls.

my bluetooth synced perfectly though.

im going to keep this - but keep my sk2 as a back up for when i am in europe/tour.

its speedy internet locks up.

and i still get logged off of myspace! haha.

the track ball is hard to control - i think its less efficiant - and it makes my wrist hurt when using it excessively - rather then the wheel.

i dont know if they can make the volume louder - or whatever - but as i went though 5 sidekick 2's - im sure when i get to my 3rd sidekick 3 - itll be on point.

or maybe they will release a sk3.5 this winter and piss everyone off.

they are shady as hell.

especially since it said you could make your own ringtones.

but apparently they took that away.

very uncool.

Since this is the forum about what I DONT LIKE, I'll list them:

2. When you open the screen, it rubs against the side - not smooth.
3. BARELY anything has changed with the screen.
4. Nothing new besides music player.
5. I lose connection a lot for some reason.

However, you put it up against your sk2 and the sk2 looks sooo outdated! Besides that, sk3 feels a bit cheap

The only real difference between the sidekick color and sidekick 2 was the design of it and a couple of things in the OS. You people make me laugh. I heard it all when the sidekick 2 hit stores. People said it didn't have a mp3 player, the screen feels flimsy and cheap, etc, etc, etc, etc, .... Now that the sidekick 3 it here those same people are complaining again about things they wanted in the sidekick 2. Someone posted it earlier but you knew what the features were before you bought it so don't complain about what it doesn't have.

People need to shut up. && if you don't like what they're saying && love the Sidekick 3, then LEAVE.

i have lefted it charging for 20 hours and nothing it still charging so i am going to return it period and get a replacement because that shouldnt be happening

are you charging it while it's on or off? My friend says that while it's off the lightening bolt will never go away as if it's still charging (even though it's done). But if you charge it while it's on, the track ball will flash green when it's done charging. Try that!!!

I dont like the fact that you have to pay for the old school sidekick ringtones. other phones come with alot better free ringtone options.

its Not natural for humans to complain, it's natural for Americans to complain (i am currently among you all, and it's simply the worst culture i've ever been amonst in my 1229 years here).

I've been among countless countries, renamed and revolutionized, and no culture has been so unsatisfied with glory like the United States.

Hey! How come in the SIDEKICK HELP http://help.sidekick.dngr.com/en-us/#manual
then click on CUSTOMIZING YOUR DEVICE and scroll down until you see Customize Ringstone which gives that we can Record a new Ringstone but it is NOT on the Sidekick 3 where you can click to RECORD A NEW RINGSTONE. DANG! I want it!

But I hate that ,my camera said 2,000 pics remaining when I first got it then now after taking 30 I now have 56 remaining this is so retared what's up with the phone but still I loveit

Hey I'm posting on my girls  3 now. Man this  has nothing negative about it. Its small and its the best. People who have problems need to relax and chill. If you love a product for what is does then it shouldn't be a problem. I love the fact that its very little and the keyboard is a hit, with its larger keys and gel buttons. The camera is a huge plus. The pics are superior than the two without ne flaws. The web is another boost. But for the record thr trackball is the ultimate. The  3 is way faster and I will be buying 1 on the 10 or before. For the haters. If you have a problem with it than that's your opinion but I can't wait till I get mines. I leave my  2 ne day for the  3.

Actually, "Rupert22", I do have a problem with your post:

You posted in the wrong forum!

You dumbass. You can't even read.

Great that you love it. But please, post in the correct forum next time. You are stupid. Get over it.

the only thing that im not feeling about this sidekick is the fact that you cant send pic messages. The pics you take you can send in an email but you cant send them to another mobile user by only usin their number.. and that sucks. Thats wha the guy at t mobile said. If n e one else is havin success in sendin pic messages could you please let me know.. THANKS!!

What is with the CHARGER? Is it supposed to fit in ALL the way? In the Sk2 it does but Im scared if I push it in any more on the Sk3 it will break the phone. Whats the final word?

Everyone is talking so poorly about the sidekick. But they still have it. Listen people its just a device and the next one is coming out within a tear and a half they are already working on it and it should have video calling. Anyway Stop knocking it and take it for what it is a device that you will use for the time being until the next hot thing comes out. It serves its purpose you can acces the internet, play music send messages and use your phone. What more do you want would you like it to bathe you. I admit that would be nice but we have to be reasonable its just a fad and we should do like any other fad milk it for all its worth.

Does anyone on their phone have the customize ringtone option? I know 5 people with the SKIII and none of us have that option.

 
At 12:33 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

ive been with the sk3 for about a whole day and a half now and i think the good out weighs the bad. i mean, not every phone is meant for everyone, so for the hardcore business oriented should stay with a Q, Palm, Treo, etc.. the SK is really for the fun factor.. and coolness.. it doesnt do as much as the other PDA,s but for what it does its great at it.

So far my battery sticks runs more than the SK2, but i think thats because of the mp3 player playing most of the day..

the volume of the phone is not nearly half as loud as the sk2, which i like because you always knew when a call was coming.. with the sk3 ive missed a few calls and didnt even notice some txt msges come in...

thats really my main concern right now, but im sure ill get over it..

*shameless plug*
heres my sidekick 2 on ebay!

Am i the only one who feels the battery sucks? The sidekick 2,my batter can last the whole day by changing a few of the display feautures (like dimming the screen and etc) but i did those same changes for the Sidekick 3 and the battery still seems to go quickly.

I don't like that.

 
At 5:17 PM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

It doesn't ring loud enough, I'm mad i have 20 applications that i couldn't use on the sk3, all my ringers gone, the flip's transition isn't as smooth as the sk2. The memory card only holds about 10 songs, The battery dies quicker while im at work than when i had my sk2, Web freezes too damn much. The screen really does suck, But I'll get used to it. Just like the sk2. I didn't like it that much at first.

This may sound like a simple thing, but has anyone else gotten the trackball to light up in unison with a song playing on the Music Player?

You're still oh so very wrong in posting here. I guess you can read but your mental comprehension is quite low. Also, just because you capitalized the word "So" does not make you sound tough. Get over it. && I will not shut up. I have no intentions in listening to you since you're still in the wrong forum && now, other people will just think the same. So, please. Embarrass yourself further for my entertainment.

where are all the freaking applications that were available on the sidekick2??? AOL Mail being the main one I used for business.

Yo Wut^ pplz well yea i dont got a sidekick 2 nd i was thinkin of gettin da 3rd 1 on da 10th...but is it worth it???????????

 
At 9:46 AM, Anonymous Anonymous said...

YES IT'S WORTH IT ... It does lack in some aspects of being a smartphone but having an mp3 player, faster web browsing, blue tooth, AIM, Yahoo and MSN messenger .... it can't be beat. The data plan is the best around for the price. Bottom line is it's way better than the sidekick 2. They could've made better improvements but it's still worth every penny. Buy it and enjoy!!
