T-Mobile Sidekick II Review: Best Phone I’ll Never Buy proclaims Gizmodo-zilla Joel Johnson “I think it’s probably one of the best mobile devices I’ve ever used. And I can say, with total conviction, that I will never, ever purchase one and neither should you. In fact, after the experiences I’ve had today with T-Mobile, I’m not sure I can ever recommend one of their products again,” he writes. Well since only he and Paris Hilton have managed to use the Sidekick II (hopefully for different reasons), I am going to take his word for it. (Dude switching from T-Mobile is a good idea, even though some “quality” experts say T-Mobile is the best!) Anyway I think there are bigger problems with the product. The comments on the original Sidekick II post show a predominately negative feeling for this new device. I suspect much of it is due to the pathetic T-Mobile network.

  1. Everything’s local Om. I get great T-Moble reception in Seattle. And, funnily enough, a friend of mine who was in town kept dropping off – using Verizon.

    IN fact I switched from ATT Wireless, which could not even get me a signal in my 21st floor condo. Oddly I even had good luck in the Bay Area where many people curse the T-Mobile name… Until I bought my SOny T610, which refuses to detect Cingular… I love mobile communications.

  2. I do well with T-Mobile here in Tampa. The data plans are great, been a customer for 20 months or so (I’m month to month now).

  3. I’ve used tmobile in Detroit, atlanta and in birmingham. Ive got to say not only the voice service, but i got excelent gprs coverage!!! That too unlimited for $5/mth. (free untill a week back) I even went on road trip from atlanta to columbus and has gprs all the way and could surf on my laptop all the way.
    Tmobile rocks.
