Perhaps All Is Not Lost For Sidekick Users?

Don’t jump up and down just yet, but there are reports on the T-Mobile Sidekick forum that contacts have returned to some users devices:

“I was just on my phone and when I got off my phone all my contacts returned. I do not know if this will last for long but the site of my contacts returning is encouraging.”

“The same thing happened to me…I shut my phone off several times without removing the battery…voile’! My contacts returned!”

“Got my contacts back too! My phone froze up on me and since I have already lost everything anyways, I just took the battery out and put it back in. Once my phone was on about 5 minutes later I checked my address book for some reason and they were all there. I saved all my contacts to my simcard.”

I could go on, but you get the idea. The interesting thing is that a T-Mobile rep then gets involved at this point:

Hey guys,

Awesome to hear that your contacts returned. We would like to collect some examples of this. Can I have those of you that have had your contacts return, please PM me with your:

* Sidekick username

* IMEI

* Model

Thanks for all your help.

I’m guessing that T-Mobile never saw this coming. I’m also guessing that a bunch of T-Mobile execs are hoping that a large number of their customers get their contacts back, and thus are praying to the gods of their choice to ensure this happens.

In the meantime, I would recommend to Sidekick users who get their contacts back, back up their contacts ASAP or save them to their SIM card. Because who knows what the next plot twist in this story will be.
