The T-Mobile Sidekick 4G continues the Sidekick's legacy as an excellent messaging device and also serves as a great entry-level smartphone.
With the design improvements and addition of features such as 3G and GPS, the T-Mobile Sidekick LX 2009 graduates from a simple messaging handheld to a real connected, all-in-one communication device for the younger crowd.
Pricing not available
With the new features, extra level of customization, and affordable price tag, the T-Mobile Sidekick is a good choice for the carrier's younger customers looking for an all-in-one communication device.
Both carriers are working on features that will let you use the number associated with your smartphone to get calls and texts on devices like smartwatches and tablets.
Smaller carriers may opt out of an auction of valuable wireless spectrum. That could give T-Mobile a better chance to scoop up spectrum and become a more potent rival to AT&T and Verizon Wireless.
That's the only way they'll solve real problems, says Glenn Lurie, speaking at the Code Mobile conference. He also notes that the iPhone 6S has sold well.
A hack of Experian, the company that handles credit checks for the wireless carrier, results in the loss of T-Mobile customers' Social Security numbers, birth dates and names.
This isn't the first time Experian has exposed consumer records. Meanwhile, Patreon also loses customer data in a breach, and Android owners need to beware of a new bug.
Much of its growth, however, now comes from connecting cars and other devices. AT&T does say it added phone customers in the period.
Sprint and T-Mobile each announce what look like incredibly cheap pricing for the new iPhone 6S and 6S Plus. What's the catch?
