Attached is a shot of another laoner phone I got from T-mobile. This one made the Nokia 6010 look like a top of the line model.
The phone in the photo was a tiny Motorola thing with - get this - 3 lines of screen real estate. It even had 'moto mixer' some kind of sound program, I guess useful for authoring ring tones on the phone. I guess that seemed useful to someone, though I'm not sure why.
Anyway, it sure is nice to have my Sidekick back. Should make my blog a lot more interesting. The photos add so much, because they put in a position to add extra commentary to a defined scene, versus describing the whole package.
I must say I'm pretty impressed with T-mobile through this process. True, their update is what killed their phone...but...
Tech support never blamed me. They offered to express ship me a phone for free. They provided a loaner phone very easily, for free. The sidekick server software meant that my phone's data was always available to me. And finally, because the state of sidekick is maintained on the sever, all I did was drop my SIM card in the new unit and all my settings and data showed up on my new sidekick.
Now if only they could partner with Verizon to provide a huge network, I'd be all set.
