In the software tour of the T-Mobile Sidekick 4G, we start off by talking about the default interface of the device, which is different than the stock Froyo launcher, but is effective and easy to use. The Sidekick 4G comes with a Feeds and Updates widget which can only be updated once per day; a sticky notes widget which saves your favorite text messages; and several others. The smartphone also lets you change to a variety of nice-looking themes that change the look and feel of the homescreen.
Then we go over the jump key settings which makes it quick and easy to launch apps with the keyboard. There's a way to change the color of the LED notification light, which is a nice touch to help customize the Sidekick 4G. There's also a way to customize the action of a slide-up action in the lock screen.
There's a group messaging SMS feature, plus the ability to do WiFi calling. Unfortunately, the WiFi calling still uses your minutes. We wrap of the video by showing some of the included apps on the T-Mobile Sidekick 4G.
