Question about T-Mobile Sidekick ID Cellular Phone

2 Answers

Sidekick ID I just bought a Sidekick ID from a friend that doesn't know the three digit code to unlock the buttons....I just did a master reset on the phone like the instructions stated on this page and it says I must wait 48 hours for service? Did the reset solve the problem if this is the case....and if it didn't, how do I bypass the three digit code or reset the three digit code. Thanks, Josh

My friend gave me her sidekick iD, but she fergot the code.


When it asks you for the code, and it's talking about the phone being locked and you havent yet switched the phone over to your phone number, then enter the last 4 digits of your friends phone number. If you've already switched it, enter in the last 4 digits of your phone number.

If it's asking for another code, I'd just call Verizon...they have help for switching to a new phone/activating a new phone that should help you out.

Unlock Sidekick ID


I found this guide online.
Please let me know if this works!

"1) Insert the ATT SIM card into the back of the T-Mobile Sidekick ID (it should be located behind the battery).

2) Turn on the Sidekick ID, wait for the screens to load.

3) When the screen says "Waiting for Activation", hold the top left button (the "Menu" button with the three lines) on the Sidekick ID and hold the letter "L" on the QWERTY pad at the same time. After a few seconds, let go of the buttons.

4) If Step 3 is done correctly, the Sidekick should be directed to the jumpscreen and display all of the Menu's of the Sidekick ID.

My sidekick id


Try a master reset.

1. Remove the battery and the SIM card from the device.
2. Flip the sidekick open; press and hold the letter 'r' on the keypad.
3. While holding the letter 'r', place the battery back in the device. DO NOT INSERT THE SIM CARD YET.
4. The sidekick will restart itself twice. Please make sure not to let the letter 'r' go until it has fully rebooted.
5. Once it has fully rebooted, remove the battery, re-insert the SIM card and battery and power up the device.
6. Once the device has fully rebooted, all prior information should be erased from the device and it should be restored back to the default factoy settings.

Unlocking a sidekick id


an easy way to make the phone work, but you can't text or access you sim but can make and recieve calls until you can get an unlock code is when it asks for the code, hit the big X button to cancel it out, then hit the upper left three lines button to bring up the menu. Go to settings, then network options, then scroll down to scan and select network manually. let it do it's thing and then pick Cingular or ATT sometimes one or the other shows up. And you can make and recieve calls with your number, I am still working on how to get the texting to work
