We'd heard T-Mo was thinking about doing more for Sidekick customers who've had their data wiped by Microsoft / Danger / Hitachi's botched server upgrade, and we just got a statement confirming that any affected customers will be getting a $100 gift card for their troubles in addition to that free month of service. T-Mobile also says that recovery of "some" lost content may be possible, but we're not holding out hope -- and if we'd just been shafted like this, we're not sure we'd want to buy even more stuff from Team Magenta. Full statement after the break.
Update: It looks like T-Mobile's having some success recovering data on certain accounts after all, and we're hearing that the carrier's official policy here is that only folks who still don't have their data recovered after two weeks will be eligible for the $100 -- everyone else will have to make do with the free month of data alone. It's a bummer, but if you read the verbiage on the statement closely, you'll notice that they give themselves the wiggle room they need to pull this off. Thanks, David C.!
