Sidekick 3 OTA Upgrade Changes: From a loyal reader

This is the unofficial list of upgrades that come with the next OTA.

Correction to the battery level indicator.
Correction to battery charging icon. Previously the icon displayed charging even when th battery was fully charged. The OTA fixes this.
Previously the device might have had problems with powering on when the power button was used to power off. The OTA fixes this.
Previously, the clicking DONE in the address book will not save/close an address book edit. The OTA fixes that.
Som beeps in the sounds profile did not also flash the trackball. OTA fixes.
OTA will ensure that redialing occurs when button on headset is pushed after busy signal.
Added Menu + Cancel shortcut in Music Player to remove menu item in playlist editing menu.
Media Player used to be case sensitive when sorting playlists. After OTA, it is not case sensitive when sorting alphabetically.
OTA will allow deletion of multiple selections from a playlist.
Device locking up after going to “sleep”. OTA fixes that.
Fixes echo in Speaker mode.
Battery Cover Notification is noticable when keyguard is activated.
AND Lastly ( I know I saw a couple of threads on this):
Ya know how when you answered a call and the person on the other end couldn’t hear you for a few seconds? Drove ya NUTS! Yeah, the OTA fixes that……

Paris & the Sidekick 3 Limited Edition

Paris always looks so nice holding the latest Sidekick 3, doesn't she? Well here it is in her naughty little hands. Judging from the last posts, people are divided on whether it's worth it not to "upgrade." I know I would take it, if it came with Paris. Here's some of E!'s take on the launch party:

"...let's get into the delish doings at T-Mobile's Sidekick 3 Soiree at Mr. Chow. All the bash babes, including reunited duo Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie , are feting the launch of limited-edition Sidekicks, designed by Diane von Furstenberg (hot lips for the babes) and Lifted Research Group (army green for the boys).
And there's more than one sidekick out tonight. I'm talking about Lindsay Lohan 's latest second in command, Rumer Willis . Hey, it's about time we got a new girl-about-town, don't you agree? Read on, and let me know what you think by posting your comments!
Celeb to Civilian Ratio: 1:2 It's a full-time job tracking the moves of the fierce foursome of fetes: Paris, Nicole, Lindsay and Mischa Barton . Each girl and her posse settle into the VIP leather booths that circle the rose-draped, pink-hued space. "It's only 10, and we've already had to close the list because it's too crowded," confides one of the security goons. "As of now, only celebs are getting in!"

First of the Special Edition Sidekick 3 : The LRG Edition

This is it, the LRG Sidekick 3 and it's coming soon. What is LRG? It stands for Lifted Research Group and this little green eyed beauty is on its way to you soon. Besides the fact that it looks like a leprechaun sat on it, I think it's pretty sweet. I expect to see a host of new Sidekick 3 news hitting over the next 3 weeks so stay tuned.
