Sidekick Users Can Get Their Contacts Back Now

At least Microsoft is making progress with this nightmare. According to this post from Microsoft, Sidekick owners can use a recovery tool on T-Mobile’s Web site to get their contacts back:

The Danger / Microsoft team continues to work around the clock and has completed its latest round of rigorous tests. We are now ready to make the first phase of the content restoration process available to you, starting with personal contacts.

This data restoration effort is only necessary for the minority of customers who lost data from their Sidekick devices.

I don’t know about the “minority of customers who lost data from their Sidekick devices” as there’s a lot of pissed off Sidekick users out there, but at least there’s a light at the end of this tunnel. The question is, how long will it take to get everything else back?
