    did it all of a sudden disappear or did you change something up and it disappeared??

    For it just o to all of a sudden disappear is MEGA odd.

    i think tmobile is having outages with their EDGE service for the sidekicks all over the place. mine was fine last night, but today is down. really frustrating.

    for some reason, when i drive north of my house to work, i lose the EDGE "E", and the circle shows up, meaning i don't have data. however, i do. kind of annoying, but i guess i can't complain since it's working.

    The circle means you have GPRS data access, the icon's listed in the manual.

    i don't have a manual and i didn't think it was possible to run GPRS with the sidekick plan.

    Wow I got alil worried when I saw rud3bwoy post cause I know you've never had a problem and usually when others do your quick to say "all is good over here" so I was like is my iphone gonna go out soon too?!?! lol

    Glad its up and running again. I had a week where I had to constantly turn airplane mode off and then back on in order to get data working. Now its working fine .

    I did go on T-Mobile's website and make sure I set my phone up as the Sidekick 3. Every week or so I do that because after the sim is in the iphone for too long it reads on the website "unknown" phone so I like to switch it back. I read it works and helps so.... can't hurt

    btw i also get the Circle some times,never knew what it meant,thought it was a glitch lol,thanks for that info
