T-Mobile starts selling Sidekick phones again

Posted by a staff writer

The phone hit by a Microsoft server crash over a month ago is now back on the market - and it's cheaper.

Sidekick is back up for sale on the T-Mobile web site but now it only costs $150, rather than the original $175 price tag.

Microsoft has been beavering away to get back data lost during the server crash and has, by and large, succeeded. In compensation, T-Mobile doled out $100 vouchers to people affected by the crash.

The Sidekick LX2009 costs $150 for a two year contract, while the Sidekick 2008 is $50 with a two year contract.
