|−|Yes, according to my research (http://www.slate.com/id/2092059/, wikipedia, phonejammer.com, howstuffworks), cell phone jammers work by creating enough interference that the cell phone is rendered unusable and the device effectively 'deadened'. Nowhere did I find that jammers pretend to be base stations. If possible, please make me aware of the source of this information so that it may be inserted into this section of the wiki. | |

In June 2006 T-mobile released its third version of the Sidekick, The Sidekick III. The smartphone is also known as the Hiptop for non T-mobile customers and is manufactured by Sharp. This phone is extremely popular amongst highschoolers and junior highschoolers. It is also used by many people with hearing disabilities as it has a full QWERTY keyboard for text messaging, email, and web browsing. For more information on its specifications please visit: http://www.phonescoop.com/phones/phone.php?p=964
The Sidekick 3 can be customized via Sidekick Themes, which can change the background image, application icons, and sounds.
