"I want to apologize for the recent problems with the Sidekick service and give you an update on the steps we have taken to resolve these problems,"she said.

We will then continue to work around the clock to restore data to all affected users, including calendar, notes, tasks, photographs and high scores, as quickly as possible," she added.

Users with affected Sidekick account should continue to log into the T-Mobile Sidekick forum at http://www.t-mobile.com/sidekick for the latest updates about when data restoration will begin, and any steps they may need to take.The next update on data restoration will be posted no later than Saturday, Microsoft said.
