Well this is a good phone for what it is. It is by no means the golden child of Samsung. And I am surprised, because Samsung usually pops out some great phones. Usually if it's not Samsung or LG I wont buy it.
But I guess everyone is entitled to a few fails. This one though it can be inconvenient when it fails. "HEY! LET ME SHOW YOU SOMETHING ON FACEBOOK!" *phone freezes* It does the same thing when I go to my photo gallery.
But in the end the phone works for what is needed- calls, and sometimes text. I say "sometimes text" because when the phone decides to act up I could be writing out a text and it deletes the text and goes back to the message inbox which is highly annoying.
If I am ever to get another SideKick, it will have to have GOOOOOOOOD reviews, the fact that it was a Samsung, I just decided to not take a second look at it, and buy it. That was a mistake...
STAY AWAY BAD PHONE!!

looks like a very good phone but when you start to use it then it doesnt work very well at ALL!
I am a very heavy texter, im a teenager. I dont recommend this phone to anyone! I have replaced the battery, the phone, and downloaded apps to help NOTHING WORKS. it doesnt even last through school and i dont text a lot at school. I turn it off and i send one text and its pratically dead when i turn it back on and after i text a couple times. As for the pros though the camera is amazing but i hate that there is no zoom and flash. the front camera is really good. the music player is good too, but if your a heavy texter like me, dont buy this phone!

I am on my 5 phone due to bugs in the system. My phone will turn itself off and do a partial restart, which just messes everything up. It will osolate like talking into a fan. when I have had to get support for it, they had to find someone who knew anything about them. I got one because my mom has one. She has had nothing but trouble with hers as well. Stay away from this phone. I would rather go back to a "dumb" phone than forced to use this phone.
Great Fun Phone

Ever since I used my friends SideKick LX I have wanted one for myself. Well TMobile no longer does the 3G phones like that. But let me say. The SideKick 4G is a GREAT phone for the young cellphone user. Just a note for parents of YOUNGER users, uhm protect the APP Market because sometimes I personally will download an APP and not realized that it costs. Although there are free apps yes. (BUT this is with any Android phone).
The phone is fun to use. It is MUCH better than any I have had. So Yeah would I reccomend this phone to TMobile users? Yes I would. If you are willing to dig a bit deeper UNLESS you are on a contract (But I didnt go for one. I wont even discuss what I payed for start up.)
