I have just bought a sidekick lx from the united states and i live in the uk. it asks me to enter my pin number and then asks me for the special code. could you tell me where i can find this code or what the code is please.
Just ask the phone company provider for your PUK2 AND PUK codes.
when you get them go to the jump menu dial
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.

once it says to enter your "special code" you hit cancel and it enables the sim pin. then you go to change sim pin, put in your old sim pin and put in a new one. then go to network settings and select "scan and select manually". once you find at&t click done and you can use the sidekick.
not sure if this works with the 2008 but its something you can try, i put a sim card in my LX and was asking for a special code to unlock the phone, well right now tmobile isn't unlocking the sidekick, but you can trick the phone into using the sim card. First go to your settings, go to "SIM Center" and click on disable sim lock, enter in whatever your sim password is (if you dont know your sim password get your PUK (pin unblocking key) number which customer service will give you if you call 611, you can change that SIM pin by typing **05*PUKnumber*newpin*newpin#) now if you wanted to change it to "0123" if your puk was 9483992 its 7-9 digits you would type **05*9483992*0123*0123# now your sim pin is 0123. (trying not to make this super complicated) it will say sim pin not accepted click ok, now click change sim pin you can type the same sim pin 3 times if you want, 0123 0123 0123 now at the top of the screen bars will show up with a white phone beside it, go to Settings-Network Options-Scan and Select Manually, the SIM network should come up, click ok when it finds it and it will connect, now you can call and text on whatever sim you have in the phone

Hey. I own a Sidekick and I'm from the Philippines and you actually can use it anywhere, I figured.
Procedures: 1. Place the SIM Card and open the phone. A window will immediately appear demanding for your SIM PIN. Just press CANCEL. 2. Press Options/Menu or whatever the 3-horizontal bars on the upper left of your phone's called. Go to SETTINGS, then SIM CENTER. 3. Press Unlock SIM CARD 4. If you have a SIM PIN Code, type it. If not, just type 1234. then ENABLE. T he code won't be accepted. Press CANCEL. 5. Press CHANGE SIM PIN 6. In the Old SIM PIN, type your PIN. If you don't have one, just type 1234 again. Type 1234 for the other 2 questions. 7. SUBMIT 8. When "Waiting to register...." appears, all at once press OPTIONS, Letter L and that key on the lower right of your phone. 9. Exit 10. Go to settings again. then NETWORK OPTIONS 11. In the NETWORK SELECTION, press SCAN AND SELECT MANUALLY. Your phone will look for networks and when it's over, press DONE.
