    Blackberry is nothing compared to a sidekick but the price is better you can get one on ebay for 80.00!

    U want Convincing? Okay.. i can give you convincing!!

    The sidekick stores 2000 contacts. Its real user friendly, easy to use, all your email gets directly sent to your phone AS soon as you get it, you can use AIM 24-7, your aol mail ALSO gets sent to your phone, the options are endless, i can post on and on abot the side kick. All i can say is that its just an incredable phone!

    I was considering the blackberry and treo when i got the sidekick, ( just considering my options within the 14 day trial period ) but i was in LOVE with the sidekick from day 1.. actually, since before i even GOT the phone! its such a good phone.. The speaker phone is good too! its one of the clearest and loudest ive ever had on a phone =)

    any questions u wanna ask?

    hows the service?? i was told that t-mobile wasnt that great, i live in rockland county NY and nextel sucks over here. and also, did you say i can get a 14 day trial, and if i dont like t-mobile's service then i can cancel it??

    Definitely get the Sidekick!!!! I have been a been with danger since September 2004 and believe me it is the best. If you do get it pm if you have any problems with understanding cause it takes a lil while to geet used to but once you get the hang of it u will never want to let it go!!!!!

    Yes, u do get a 14 day trial period and if u dont like it, you can return the phone ( with box, reciept and phone ) and cancel out. Sprint also does this 14 day trial period, as well. Tmobile has GREAT service, as far as reception, customer service and their products go. BUT it does depend on where you live, some places dont have the best reception. Thankfully i have GREAT reception! Never had a problem with TMOBILE and i TOTALLY recommend them. Ive had EVERY service provider ( nextel, cingular, sprint, tmobile, verizon etc ) and out of all of them TMOBILE is the BEST overall!!! ALSO, ive had id say about 10 phones per year since 2000... so, ive had QUITE A FEW phones.. and the sidekick 2 is the best BY FAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    GET THE SIDEKICK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Also, i must disagree jon, it took me legit 10 minutes to figure out! It was fairly easy to learn. I had a harder time learning my sanyo 9000!

    As you say for web browsing, I recommended Sidekick is just becuz Blackberry use WAP browser and Sidekick use HTML browser, yep it is real time surfing on ur computer.... Blackberry looks all text based..and Sidekick is the best deal you'll ever want it for..

    Big buck is right, the sidekick is basically a computer in ur pocket. You see ALL the pictures u would see on a website as if you were browsing from your computer, its great. Ive never had a phone do that before, my sanyo 9000 browses the web fairly well but it doesnt show the pictures and such cause the phone isnt made for html browsing.. either way, the sidekick does GREAT when browsing the web!!!!!!!!
