    The sidekick lx is nice actually im on it now!.its just like your on a “to-go” computer/laptop but sleek and smaller.the only thing I don’t like about it is that you can’t listen to music on the websites but you can dowload your own music on it like an ipod(sorta)…its wonderful,especially if your a “buisness” person or a teen who uses their phone a lot and loves the internet.they would never leave their phone alone..and that’s a PROMISE!!

  46. charlene says:

    anyone know if an unlocked sidekick lx would work is australia? over here we have hiptop slide which looks like that sidekick slide thing.. like identical haha.

  47. Jen says:


    EBAY!! (And random people selling their old ones)

    Ebay is the only place you can get them in this country. Its tough luck im afraid, T-Mobile DO NOT sell these officially in the UK. You can only get a Sidekick LX from Ebay, like I did 🙂 Hope that clears it up.

  50. Marie says:

    hi! i live in Belgium and i'm wondering if I buy one on e-bay from USA which was unlocked … will the sidekick work in Belgium?

  51. Georghia says:

    Hey all you UK people. I just bought the sidekick lx 2009 carbon unlocked from eBay seller is 99.9% positive and has an excellent rep so I recommend seller1on1. It will work in the UK but on SMS and calls only luckily I have an iPhone so I just need the sidekick as a backup phone as the signal on my iPhone is playing up badly. So get on eBay make sure you get it from seller1on1 and it’s £71.75 for the phone and postage! Good luck I hope when mine gets here itl be good 🙂 oh a d there’s a chance you can get a web and walk contract to deactivate your Internet as long as the phone is UNLOCKED. x

    1. Kate says:

      Hey, Do you think it will work on vodafone sim card? I am thinking of getting it off ebay like you, it is unlocked. I live in the UK btw. I don't care if it doesn't have the internet, just aslong it will txt and make calls, but i heard that it loses contacts, txts, phtos etc, once you've switched the phone off, is this true? Have you had any problems with it so far?
