so much for the modern phone age

Humph. Well, it looks like I'll be returning my Sidekick. What they don't mention when you are signing up is that to actually *use* the Sidekick, you have to sign up for a special Internet package that adds $20 on top of your 39.99 monthly plan. Which with taxes and San Jose local special fees would be about $75 a month, which is more than I care to pay for a phone. They do have a 'sidekick plan', but A) it's only 29.99 a month which means I wouldn't get the rebates, and B) it charges phone calls at .20 a minute, which is fairly obscene for local calls and none too good for long distance.

I'm really annoyed because that's a pretty basic thing not to mention anywhere in the signup process.
