    Hello. I'm new to this forum.
    Looked around and found this forum to be info-packed.

    Well anyway, I'm getting my Sidekick LX tomorrow and had some questions.
    Do I need the data plan to send/receive texts?
    Or can I just get the text plans w/o the data plan?

    Because I really have no use for Internet/IM's.

    Re: Sidekick Data Plan Question.

    All you will need is a SideKick plan for $29.99

    This does include internet, Instant messaging and text, texting uses data, so without the sidekick data plan, no unlimited texting.

    Sidekick Data plan Info <---this link explains everything about the Sidekick plan.

    You can if you like, add a voice plan on top of this, or pay .20 cents per min to talk on the phone.

    If you're getting with a postpaid plan, then the data plan is only $19.99/month.

    So they have another type of Sidekick plan, other than one one on their website? (T-Mobile's)

    Or do they treat the sidekick like a regular phone if you don't want the data plan up front, and then decide to add on a data plan later?

    I think they put the $29.99 sidekick data plan on their website, specially for those who will just use data, no need a voice plan.
    BUT in my recent experience, I have 2 sidekick slides, using $59.99 family plan and we have to pay extra $19.99 for each sidekick for data plan.

    I think all sidekick users are required to have a data plan since the beginning of the contract.

    Re: Sidekick Data Plan Question.

    I had a sidekick for a couple weeks before I got my blackberry and I didn't have to keep my SK data plan once I signed my contract. I just wasn't eligable for any MIR's. Which was perfectly fine by me. I'd rather not get the MIR and save 20-30 a month on something I wouldn't use anyways.
