Another Sidekick Service Disruption Update


It has been over a week now since the Sidekick data disruption had plagued us. For those of you wondering what the cause of the Sidekick data outage was, T-Mobile has revealed to the public the problem behind it all. T-Mobile and Danger, a subsidiary of Microsoft, are once again apologizing for the inconvenience the data disruption has caused Sidekick owners. The cause of this data outage, T-Mobile claims, is a service failure on Microsoft/Danger’s end. And as a result of this server failure, personal information stored on Sidekick devices such as: contacts, calendar entries, to-do lists or photos that no longer appear to show up on your Sidekick device, have been most likely lost. Microsoft/Danger continues to work, trying to find a way to restore the information, although it is VERY unlikely. T-Mobile again apologizes, and for those individuals who have lost personal information, T-Mobile is looking for other incentives to show how valuable you are to T-Mobile. In addition to this, T-Mobile plans to check the status of the remaining issues on Monday (Oct. 12). Once again please DO NOT remove your battery, reset your Sidekick, or allow it to lose power, as any personal content that currently resides on your device will be lost. Feel free to express your thoughts in the comments!
