Had the iphone, got the G1, but the most reliable phone I've ever owned was the Sidekick. I owned the original one in 2002, and stuck with it until I went to the iPhone for a month (and att) Then came back to my trusty Tmobile - after 10 years, I didn't feel right leaving them in the first place. Now... The sidekick looks great again, and up to date with features it shoud have had a year ago. Lets see what this bruce-lee of phones can really do.
