T-Mobile Sidekicks Becoming Paperweights on May 31st

| March 1, 2011 | Reply

Still hanging on to that T-Mobile Sidekick as your primary means of communication? You might want to rethink your plan as T-Mobile has announced that the Danger servers that power the Sidekick’s cloud features will be going dark on May 31st. ¬†Without the cloud features, the devices pretty much become paperweights as they cannot access their contact lists, messaging services or the web.

T-Mobile has promised to offer an “easy transition” for its existing customers (maybe to something familiar looking and Android-powered perhaps?), ¬†and they will be announcing those offers in the next few weeks. T-Mo is also providing software and options to get data off of existing Sidekicks so good on them for being proactive about the situation.

Does the end of the Hiptop make you teary-eyed or is this just another one to bite the dust? Sound off in the comments!
