For folks who are still using the Danger Sidekick from T-Mobile, we’ve got some bad news for you. T-Mobile has officially announced that they will be shutting down the Sidekick data servers on May 31st. While this means that you’ll no longer have access to them online, here’s one surprising piece of news: the files on your phones will be gone forever as well, if your phone’s battery completely loses power.
While you can still get them from the myT-Mobile backend, those servers will be shutdown as well on June 30th. This means that all your photos, contacts, calendars, notes that you have stored on your Danger Sidekick – it’s time to move them somewhere else. Take note that this doesn’t apply to the newly released T-Mobile Sidekick 4G phones – they’re totally different devices.
