T-Mobile suffered a rather embarrassing customer service issue only a short while ago when Sidekick users lost the ability to use their data plans for two long weeks. Now after thoroughly retesting their network with Sidekick devices, the company has once again started selling the Sidekick 2008 and LX 2009 models, albeit at discounted pricing.
The Sidekick 2008 can be grabbed for a respectable $49.99 with a two year contract, while the LX 2009 is now only $149.99, $25 cheaper than the original pricing offered before the data snafu.
There’s a good chance that the data issues which occurred recently will never happen on the same devices twice, but the wireless carriers caution means better deals for all of us. [Engadget]
