There is no such thing as bad publicity
Last year Paris Hilton's T-Mobile account got hacked and contents from her address book, messages and pictures were revealed to the world online.
A PR mess for T-Mobile USA and the Sidekick device and a violation of Ms Hilton's privacy.
According to this article from Mobile Today this very event put the benefits of messaging phones like the Sidekick and the BlackBerry to the awareness of gay consumers, raising them beyond business people and demonstrated their benefits for gossiping and bitching.
