T-Mobile Sidekick Slide power off problem - sales suspended

T-Mobile USA suspended sales of the T-Mobile Sidekick Slide earlier this evening, November 16, after Motorola confirmed that some Sidekick Slide might inadvertently power off when the slide door on the front of the phone is opened or closed.

As of right now, Motorola is clueless as to the root cause of the power cycle issue, but they're doing everything humanly possible to get to the bottom of this problem.

Sidekick Slide owners experiencing the unintended power cycle issue should contact T-Mobile Customer Care, or run to the nearest T-Mobile retail store, for help and to discuss available options (hmm, maybe not buy another phone made by Motorola?)
