After users expressed outrage over outages and data loss with their Sidekick smartphones in October, T-Mobile halted sales of the phone. This week, the Sidekick is back on sale.
With two-year contracts, the 2008 Sidekick will now sell for as low as $49, while the 2009 Sidekick LX will be priced at $149, representing a slight price drop from previous retail price-tags.
"T-Mobile is pleased to announce that Sidekick sales have resumed," the carrier said in a statement.
Although the device is back on sale, the company is still dealing with customers angry over the loss of their data, which was caused by a server meltdown. Customers lost numbers, pictures and other personal info.
However, Microsoft--who runs the Sidekick servers--was able to recover most of the data, according to reports. To make up for it, they offered $100 gift cards to affected customers.
