They're a good & portable email machine, and a pretty good phone. A de facto tool for the deaf or hearing impaired to stay in touch with everybody else. Price is reasonable. PM me if you need detail.

I don't know about their data services, but I just got rid of their cell service today and couldn't be happier. Man, it was cheap, but I would easily drop half of my calls. The worst coverage ever.

the problem is mostly with T-mobile, not the phone. T-mobile's coverage area compared to, lets say verizon, is seriously lacking.

the phone is awesome, a friend had one and liked it, just didnt like paying the extra fee to use it.

i always hated calling him cuz there was static here and there.

I have a Sidekick II and love it. I am the Linux Admin for a large company in Utah. The companies I work for are fairly well locked down as far as access to outside email whether by web interface or POP/IMAP access. Although my position makes it possible to skirt such blocks my Sidekick makes it unnecessary. The email client works fine allowing you to POP or IMAP up to three additional accounts. The web browser is adequate. It has an AOL instant messenger client which works with ICQ as well and you can download an SSH client which is great for connecting to your Linux machines remotely.

If all you want to do is vew postings the "Lite Version" of AR15.com works perfectly well. I am unable to log in to the site nor post comments using my Sidekick II though.

Basically simple pages come out fine. No Java or Flash will work though.
