I have purchased 2 of the Juicy Couture Sidekick 2 cell phones off ebay in the last year. The first one was for Christmas 08', I loved it so much that I bought a 2nd in July 09' as a back up just in case something happens to my first one! The t-mobile stores don't carry this model anymore so ebay has been a great help in getting me a cell phone I really wanted! The phone is pretty pink, very girly and I love the swivel screen. It works great and is very comfortable to use. If you love to text the sidekick is the phone for you because of its great keyboard. The battery life is good, I put mine on the charger every night and never have a problem during the day. I love all the extras like the web browser, calendar, to do list, note pad, email and aol messenger. It doesn't come with a calculator, but you can download it for free from the shopping catalog! It is a larger phone then the newer sidekicks and the pictures are not the greatest. So if a small phone size and having great pics are a must for you, this is not the phone for you. Maybe the newer Sidekick 08' or LX would be better? For me the sidekick took about a week to get use and reading the manuel was almost a must. I came from a motorola razr... way different. Plus I'm 30, my niece's took to the phone within a day or two! HAHA Overall for me, I love this phone. Its pink, its girly and its fun to talk and text on. The larger size and lack of great quality pics hasn't bothered me a bit!
I gave this phone a excellent rating because it does almost everything it does
email, texts messages, aol instants messenger windows live messenger, yahoo messenger, my space applications and much more to stay connected with your friends. you can sent video (yup i said video) and pictures to friends and family (mms or email). the address book can store all of your friends and family info from phone numbers email to adresses. you can surf the internet and download games ringtones and more. it has a flash with the camera. its also a mp3 player so i can store all my music my fav is that i can put movies in to my phone like south park, jumper or any movies that are mp4. the lights o the roll button and the blue mood lighs on the sides are really cool there a great way to let you know that someone call or you have a messages without the ring, it has different light patterns.
it has a full keyboad which makes texting alot easier and faster.thery are so many applications you can buy. like myspace,alarm clock, spotospin screensaver, message sentinel,weather,caloriecruncher3 and alot more i dont have room to type them all lol
there is not much about this phone i dont like but here is a few.you cant load mp3 for ringtones you have to buy they from T-mobile. you cant put wallpaper but you can put themes which is good thing i hope this reviews help you alot
T-Mobile is Ending the Sidekick line. I am currently a sidekick user. And yesterday i received a text messege from t-mobile stating " Sidekick data service no longer available 5/31 move to a ne plan now and get a $10 BONUS Credit applied to acct within a week of move." After recieving this message i called the Customer Service line and they stated that they are stoping the Sidekick line all together. They told me that the 3G networking is ending 5/31 and the phone will no longer be able to use any internet service. No More Email. No more Youtube. Even heard the calender and most of the phone will no longer work. They told me i could still use the phone for calls and text but will not have any internet service at all! I bought a Sidekick 2009 LX not even 10 months ago new from a T-mobile store and now all the features i bought it for will no longer work. I have been using sidekick devices for several years now and Loving the $1 a day service i recieved. ( I owned a sidekick 2008 version before this 2009 LX.
ALSO!!! They are removing the internet service from the phone and upping the charge for the plan to $70 a month for unlimited talk/text. instead of the 30 bucks a month i was paying for my current plan!
DO NOT BUY A SIDEKICK!!!!!! YOU WILL BE VERY DISSAPOINTED!!!!!!! T-MOBILE HAS Let down all of the Sidekick Users. The customer support told me that if i would go buy a $500 Android Phone they would credit me $10 to my account but they couldnt do anything else for me.
PLEASE!!! Search in Google or Yahoo about it. i used "Sidekick data changes 5/31" and im sure you can find a lot of upset Sidekick users!!
I am trying to save all those buyers that LOVE the sidekick as i do too!! But they will be worthless in a couple of months.
I hope i just saved ya from buying a rippoff!!!
It actually looks like a skateboard! How cool is that? The video record,play and share feature is awesome! The email was a breeze to set up too!
AWESOME!!! Much more rugged and cool looking when you flip that screen out in public it looks like you mean business! very reliable operating system and the expandable micro SD memory card slot (32GB max!!) is just what the doctor ordered!
The media player works fabulous for music and is easy to use. Battery life is good and the theme selections make it beautiful in the OS. I use it with a prepaid T-Mobile account for unlimited Edge data and SMS which is perfect! Definitely recommend for anyone looking to get away from the iPhone or Blackberry band wagons and show a little style!
