    I’ve had mine since the 11th. I was able to get it early on a pre-order since I am already a T-Mobile customer. This is the third Sidekick that I’ve owned. Prior to this I had the Sidekick 2008 and before that the Sidekick II. Anyway, I’m trying to be optimistic, but I’m already having problems with it. It won’t connect to the internet and is having problems connecting to AIM and Facebook apps as well. However, it says it has reception and is signed in. I’ve spoke to T-Mobile and all they can tell me is that everything looks fine on their end and that because it’s new there may be some issues. I’ve tried all the troubleshooting that they recommend such as a soft reset and also actually removing the battery and reseting the phone. Nothing is fixing the problem. I’m not to happy with the current situation. Hopefully they work things out soon, because otherwise the phone itself is nice.
