Sidekick LX 2009 OTA On The Horizon

sklx09update_tmonews_wm

Sidekick owners haven’t received much love lately, especially since there have been rumors of the myTouch Slide taking its place in Magenta’s heart.  According to T-Mobile, a new Sidekick LX (2009) OTA (Over-the-air) Update is rolling out starting today and will gradually make its way to the masses by March 8th.  The OTA is expected to improve 3G connectivity.  Once Sidekick LX (2009) owners accept the update, their devices will reboot so don’t freak out when that happens.  After the reboot, LX 2009 owners will receive a TMail on their Sidekick handsets with the details of the update.

Any Sidekick LX 2009 owners receive the update yet? Let us know in the comments!

    I Haven’t Received It, Yet…

  • Yay! :)

    After hearing that the sidekick might be gone forever from hiptop3, I’m glad to see were getting an update at least

  • Bryon

    hope it fixes the addressbook sync issues once and for all, my phone has a bad tendency of overwriting numbers I change on my phone with outdated ones from tmobile’s servers now

      It Does That To Me, Too And Even Restores Contacts I’ve Deleted.
      The Address Book Was Perfectly Fine, Before They Began Syncing With The T-Mobile Site, IMO.

      Says 3G connectivity.. that issue could be solved on T-Mobile’s side.

      Too bad they don’t have an update to make the Sidekick LX 09 a real smartphone!

    Has the day finally come? T-Mobile appears to have pulled all of the Sidekick models from their site except for the Sidekick LX 2009 Carbon. And even the Sidekick LX 2009 Carbon is listed as “Temporarily Out of Stock”. Is this just a hiccup on T-Mobile’s site or does this mean the end of the Sidekick?

      Really, with this lackluster update to the LX ’08, how could you not? I had the sidekick and needless to say it’s an underwhelming phone hampered by a horrifc browser, app store, and just every aspect of it is “blah” and dates back to the original sidekick. I’m glad T-Mobile is taking it out to the pasture and putting this one trick pony DOWN. If not now, when?

And in the sidekick lx07 had a 3.5mm hedset jack and the HTC my touch doesn’t and a big omg upgrade is a hedset jck really?? Sidekicks were underrated…I hope they don’t get replaced by p.o.s “turtle and magic” windows phone…what shame

    Well last time I checked sidekick lx09 came out about march last year with a 840×480 screen and now barely the other phone companies are catching up with screens to rival it. And in the sidekick lx07 had a 3.5mm hedset jack and the HTC mytouch doesn’t and other phones are makinf a great big deal about finally having them on their phones 3yrs after the sidekick Sidekicks were underrated…I hope they don’t get replaced by p.o.s “turtle and magic” windows phone…what shame

    It is pathetic how clever you all think you are. Yes the sidekick is out of date but in its hay day it was the shit. I mean really the world has moved on, technology is more advanced. Why the sophmoric attempts at ridicule @ what used to be a great device; that you would have wet yourselfs to have back in the day. You have inspired me never to read the comments again!

      Frank…..it’s not that deep. I was one that ridiculed the sidekick, but in all honesty I was joking. The sidekick definitley deserves it’s just. It was a inventive and very creative device. Don’t take it so hard brother. In 4yrs we’ll say the same thing bout the nexus one. And who knows, you might be laughing at it too…

    • watbetch

      Thanks for admitting that it’s an outdated phone that is no longer great.
