      What’s a sidekick?

      So I was wondering, looking back through the different sidekick outage posts, you mentioned that all data has now been recovered…what about email? My girlfriend went from a sk to android, and there was obviously some different content that she still wants, email in particular, has that been recovered?

      @nr552: Very Funny! :)

      It worked for me and I don’t have a sidekick anymore. I checked them all and pushed sync anyway and about an hour later the stuff was available via the Desktop Interface. So no $100 for me, damn, haha. They need to get the pictures. I don’t know how long I’ll be able to access the Desktop Interface, might stop with new billing cycle. I don’t know. I was on,y worried about the Notes and the pictures, I have half of what I want


      I Didn’t Lose My Info. Woohoo =D

      Verizon had a major data outage yesterday. It must be and end of the year thing.

      I’ve been fortunate on the personal info front. The only thing that doesn’t work for me on my Slide is the “Download Catalog”. No idea when I’ll get to use that again. But not a major deal for me.

      I’m happy to have my notes & calendar events back, don’t get me wrong. However, I’d love to get my web bookmarks & emails back some day.
