Question about Sharp Sidekick LX Smartphone

1 Answer

Registeration process Every sidekick lx is suppose to ask for your registeration from the first time that you turn it on , mines didnt. I've been waiting for activation & the sidekick tells me network data services are currently unavailable. Either my GPRS APN setting is incorrect or my account isnt configured for GPRS. I DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO. i've called tech support & they're telling me that my phone is fine & that it working properly. I've checked my account and its fine. But i need to register my phone. AND I DONT KNOW HOW. But its not; i have to use a shortcut every time i use the phone to get the menu because the first thing that i see on my sidekick is the "waiting for activation" page. Please help me. I dont know what else i need to do. & their department wont help me. I've tried 3 times. I really hope you guys can help. thanks.

Al right what you want to do is go to a T-mobile store and regester your device... 
But then the only way to do that is getting the sidekick plain with them and when there will be a G instead of the phone icon...
When you turn your phone off then back you will be able to put a username and password on it...

More than likely, the trackball on your Side LX is really dirty. Overtime, dirt and grime gets in between the ball and the sensors.

It is really easy to clean it, you will need q-tips and IPA alcohol.

Check out the Video at the following link to see how the trackball cleaning on the Sidekick2.gif LX is done

The special sim code for the sidekick lx


just ask the phone company provider for your PUK2 AND PUK codes.
when you get them go to the jump menu dial
**05*PUK*passcode*passcode#
the passcode is any 4-8 digits you'd like, that are NOT, AND I REPEAT N - O - T consecutive.
(for example 2736 is good whereas 1234 or 9876 is bad)
if it asks your for the code again put in the PUK2 then go to settings> network options goto the "scan and select manually" button and chose your carrier.

I have a sidekick lx


Hi there! It just has to be reset again....

Press all 3 at buttons at same time -> "one", "zero" and "at" (1- 0- @)
then hold down the "R" until it reboots (logos appear)
Now you should be able to register the phone as if it was new


Hope this helps. Good luck!

Phone will not turn on


Sounds like your charger port is busted. Ti is a common problem on sidekick 3 and can effect sidekick IDs as well. A fairly cheap workaround is to get an external battery charger. It will have a slot to charge the sidekick battery external formthe phone. They sell on ebay fior about 25 dollars.

The sidekick ID and sidkeick 3 batteries are the same so it will work. Check then out here
