According to the NYTimes, T-Mobile might (yes, *might*) recover some of the lost data from the Sidekick debacle. Microsoft Engineers (Sidekick belongs to Microsoft) think that some data might be salvageable. If you’re a Sidekick user, all hope is not lost yet, but frankly I wouldn’t hold my breath… In the meantime, T-Mobile compensating the “significant loss of data” by offering a $100 gift certificate (that effectively costs them much less). It’s better than nothing, but it will only mildly calm those who lost critical data.
Update: some customers have reported that their data is back.
