Danger SideKick Users, T-Mobile and Danger Are Closing Down Your Service

Posted by at 8:32 pm on March 2, 2011

T-Mobile has sent out an press release informing the media that Danger (a subsidiary of Microsoft these days) will no longer offer data services on Sidekick devices after May 31, 2011.

Sidekicks are not really good for much without the data connection to Danger. The Danger unit was also behind the Kin, which was far from a shining star moment for Microsoft.

To ensure the best possible transition for our loyal Sidekick customers, an enhanced Web tool is available on myT-Mobile.com to easily export their personal data, including contacts, photos, calendar, notes, to-do lists, and bookmarks, from the Danger service to a new device, computer, or a designated e-mail account. An application is also available in the Sidekick Catalog to make it easy to export personal data to the Sidekick’s memory card. Many T-Mobile stores can transfer data from that card to a new T-Mobile device if the customer brings in the memory card and Sidekick.

Current Sidekick users are going to have to start looking for a new phone. T-Mobile has said they’ll provide offers to their Sidekick customers before May 31, 2011, to help make an easy transition from their existing Sidekick device to a new device. T-mobile will have more information to share about these offers with customers in the weeks ahead.
