    I'm in New England and I've also been without data service for about 36 hours.

    The outage is global and the apparent ETA for it to be back up and running is Tuesday accoring to this thread over at Powered By Danger. Some (like myself) do have somewhat of a working web browser even though there is no G. The browser is crippled when functional though since you can't stream YouTube or anything else.

    For those who have their G, there is still no e-mail, no catalog, and no data recovery available. I have my G right now but it usually doesn't last more than a couple of hours. Apparently Microsoft still has a lot of work to do before the service is fully restored worldwide.

    I wonder why people put up with dangers subpar servers and devices? I thought there was not a life after the sidekick but i was soooo wrong,after having the sk2,sk3,sk id,sk slide and more than enough outages i gave up. I really hope people wake up.

    Let it go

    My girlfriend had a slide with problems while I had my Wing and then a G1 with no issues. We bought two new phones about a month ago. I bought a mytouch while she got a sidekick 09. I begged her to let me get her a mytouch or rather something besides a sidekick. She didn't listen.

    Finally after 3 weeks of problems, last weekend we returned the sidekick and got her a mytouch. (Knock On Wood) She has been network problem free since.

    The sidekick has been the worst phone I've ever seen. Sorry, for all of you sidekick users. I don't mean to offend anyone, but she had neverending problems with both the sidekick and the 09 and its ridiculous.
