metro email? [Sep. 20th, 2007|10:57 am]
The Community for Sidekick Addicts!
My friend has a metro cell phone and I wanted to send her some pictures off of my sidekick. does metro have an email like cingular and verizon? I checked the memories but there wasn't one for metro.

I know that theres a way. My friend gets picture text messages all of the time from another Sidekick user.

service problems for all [Aug. 26th, 2007|06:53 pm]
The Community for Sidekick Addicts!

If you ask a question and your question is answered... DO NOT DELETE YOUR POST! The whole point of this community is for everyone to benefit from what's being posted here! Someone else might have the exact same question and your post could help them, too!!

That being said...

It seems like there are service problems everywhere in the country [as established from the now non-existant post I was previously referring to]. It's not just your phone and it's not just your area. It also doesn't seem to be just sidekicks having problems, as I've talked to multiple people with regular tmobile phones and they are having problems, too. Yes, we've all got those damn flashing dots. Feel free to try and reset your wireless, but it probably won't make a difference. I had data service this morning long enough to get a few tmails... but it's been out since. Is anyone else getting flashes of data service every so often?

Last week I couldn't recieve incoming calls. I had full signal with the G and everything and I could make calls and send/recieve texts.... but whenever someone called me, it went straight to voicemail and if they left a message, I wasn't getting a notification that I had new voicemails. Did anyone else have this problem last week? Just trying to see if it was my phone or maybe other people had this problem and it's possibly related to the outages we're having now. [ps, yes I called tech support and they fiddled with my phone for about an hour and nothing seemed to work and then the problem randomly just... fixed itself.]

ETA: handy website!
If you're experiencing an outage, report it here: http://www.signalstrength.org/index.html

Okay so I have a windows xp and I've been trying to plug my Sidekick3 usb into my computer for months to upload themes/music/ect... but every time I plug it in nothing ever pops up on my computer. My sidekicks screen says USB and everything and I have no idea why it isn't working. Once in awhile something will pop up and tell me to install the mas usb device or something and then it will say that it can't install the device. Is there any way to get my sidekick to work with my computer?

for all the bitching i've done lately, I still want to baby the damn thing... i just ordered this case off of ebay http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&ih=015&sspagename=STRK%3AMEWN%3AIT&viewitem=&item=250101670879&rd=1&rd=1... does anyone have one like this? If so, do you like it? I like that the screen is covered when it's not in use, but not covered when you flip it out. I think it looks pretty stylish too. my oem case is falling apart and unlike my friend nick, i dont find electrical tape to be stylish lol. his is covered in tape and it's all gooey lol. ew. I've been wanting a live in case anyway, since i've always thought the back of the phone was hideous and one of the main reasons i didnt want to buy it in the first place.

so other than that, my battery has been draining really quickly on me lately. I am not doing anything diffrently. My battery has always lasted me though my whole day, ending with two bars when i plug it in at night, after a day of pretty heavy usage. lately though, i lose two bars within the first few hours of use and by the end of the night I'm lucky to get it plugged in before hereing that awful battery dying sound. It's bumming me out. Oh well.

2 little questions, one is more of a request.
first off, has anyone ever tried to reglue on their keypad? like mine is only coming up in the middle, so i was wondering if i maybe like put glue on a brush and carefully went underneath and pressed it down, you think it would fuck up my phone? it's not effecting the way it works or types at all, it's just damn annoying hahah.

second off, what are some nice sites to go on from your sidekick? like things to do/look at? i feel like all i ever do is check lj & myspace =|

thank youuu ♥

hi sidekickjunkies!

what do you guys here think about the new Helio Ocean?

i am definitely buying this, and getting rid of my sk3. asap. 3g, mms, video, better camera, better battery life, 100x nicer screen, your OWN ringtones, usable bluetooth, & GPS, anybody?


The service itself is only 65$ a month. That includes ALL data, unlimited, as much as you want, for everything, aim/email/msn/etc, web, etc, and 500 minutes w/ unlimited nights and weekends. that's a very very awesome rate compared to a lot of other 'plans' companies are offering.

Not once do they admit that there have been outages... how can they act like it's my sim or my phone? I guess I'm just bored and stirring up crap anyhow, but it still bothers me that they can't admit to the outages... whatever.

Tmo is CRAPTASTIC! [Apr. 13th, 2007|12:14 pm]

[mood |disappointeddisappointed]

I know everyone is sick of the constant connectivity issues lately. My SK3 has been nothing but a pain in the tushy lately. My most annoying issues are: two dancing dots for just about ½ of every stinking day, I'm COMPLETELY unable to connect to MSN anf Yahoo messengers which are the only ways to speak to my husband and my best friend during the day, not receiving phone calls (I.E. going straight to VM.) My phone MAGICALLY shut itself off the other day and came back on with none of my saved PWs for my messengers and NONE of my favorite. Hours and hours later says something like "would you like to install and restart now or restart and install later?" Ummmmm install what? So I did it cause I figure why not? Its already messed up as it can be. I got my PWs back and my favorites but still miss ½ my calls and my messengers WILL NOT connect for NOTHING!! I'm sick of it. I'm sick that I paid 400$ for this. Hy husband had a pebl or whatever it was (stupid phone) and spilled laundry detergent on it so, he had ordered himself a Blackberry. He has utterly no use for this phone but he thinks it looks cool...whatever. I hate to say this but, if I like the Crackberry at all I may leave my beloved SK3 burried in the backyard. Its dead to me anyway right now. NO SERVICE.....NO FRIEND!!! HEAR ME SK??????? UGH! I want to cry I seriously do!

anyone been having horrible connection problems on my sk3 since the latest OTA?

i swear i wake up in the morning and i'm on two dots, and it'll stay that way until 4pm EST. it's been doing this for 4 days now and every time i call T-Mob i'm on hold forever.

so i'm trying to see if anyone else is having this issue, and if they were given a credit. i use my phone a lot for business stuff and i've been missing calls left and right due to this shit.
