I stay in Australia, so the perfect i am going to inform you is that the Sidekick 3 is avaliable right here from the Telstra save on a $30 plan. i'm not confident about everywhere else yet I imagine it ought to all be somewhat similar. The minimum fee all up for the phone even as calls and messages is calculated is upwards of $1400 AUD. The Sidekick 3 has constructive factors which include an MP3 participant, prompt messaging, a digital camera, video games, e mail, internet surfing and larger. the different one you suggested isn't avaliable in Australia, so i do not comprehend. in my opinion i do not imagine absolutely everyone lower than 12 must have a moblie, now to not indicate one as stepped ahead as a sidekick. perhaps you should only keep on with what you've for now. there are many different good phones accessible.
