Question about T-Mobile Sidekick® 3 Cellular Phone
Hi guys, I'm from australia and have recently purchased an unlock code for the (called hiptop in aus) hiptop slide q700 on a telstra network. ( I would like to unlock it from telstra as my friend is buying it off me and she is with a different network) The people told me that when i enter a sim card not compatible and turn my phone on a dialogue box will pop up prompting me to enter the code. Yet when i turn it on it DOES NOT come up. Can you please help me with this? Thanks

Do you remember getting a hiptop account when you first got your phone? If so , sign onto 'www.hiptop.com.au' and sign in with it. I hope you know your account details. Your username should be what your hiptop email address was. Once you're signed in you should find all of your contacts ,etc on that site.

No you dont need to buy an unlock code if you simply forgot your password code, all you must do is do a hard reset on the phone. and yes you can use it prepaid or with whatever plan you want, all you do is insert your tmobile sim card, i have a flex account with tmobile and i just inserted the sim card, You dont have to contact tmobile.
Hold the Home and Power keys down at same time for about 25 seconds. You will see a yellow triangle screen with exclamation point in the middle.Now to wipe the device clean:
Press Alt+L. Press Alt+W for a factory reset.
Press the Home and Back keys again for about 25 seconds.
The device should then reset again and the hard reset is complete.

yes, tmobile does unlock the sidekick 2008 for FREE!!. i promise you this works, i just did this today, the agent told me that they dont usually advertise it.
So here are the steps.
1.call tmobile but dont ask the first representative to unlock it.
2.ask him or her to transfer you too customer care.
3.then ask the customer care agent for the SIM SUB SIBY unlock code.
4. he or she will ask you for the IMEI number, if you dont know that number, just dial *#06# or you can find it on the back of your phone under the battery. IMEI number is a 15 digit code.
this will let you use your sidekick 08 in another country.
