Sidekick Data Outage Update

t-mobile tweet

Actually, not much to update here.  Anyone with a Sidekick would be able to tell you this, but, data is still out and it should have returned yesterday.  In the meantime, T-Mobile and Danger are working very hard to get things up and running as soon as possible, and they have this to say:

T-Mobile and Danger/Microsoft are urgently working to restore impacted services to Sidekick, and deliver them to you as quickly as possible. Following is a status update for our valued customers:

* We expect data services to begin gradually returning in the next couple of hours (Saturday evening)

* Web browsing capabilities should be first accessible first; additional functions such as IM, social networking applications and email will then follow.

While we anticipate a significant portion of data services to be restored by Monday, some richer data services may lag. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience, and appreciate your patience as we work hard with Danger/Microsoft to resolve this issue. We will continue to keep you updated as we have news to share. Thank you.

Things are getting sorted out, and data may be back as early as tonight.  To help you with your trouble, T-Mobile has issued bill credits ranging from $35 to three full months of data access  Tell us how this is hurting your weekend in the comments!
