Question about T-Mobile Sidekick

Sidekick LX keeps shutting off and coming back on repeatedly

My phone was find until I took my battery out to try my friends sim card in my phone to see what was wrong with her network. And that is when the mayhem began. It didnt even make it to the regular screen with the texts and emails. The phone kept restarting to the 4 boxes start up. Now my phone wont go to the jump screen unless the charger is. I bought a brand new battery and yet I'm still getting the stupid T MOBILE Sidekick LX jingle and start screen b4 it cuts off and repeats the process again until the battery dies.

PLEASE HELP ME!!!

MS. Distressed

    My sidekick continues to restart and end up at the security code screen, without my prompting it to do so. The only way it functions now, is when it is charging.

My name is joseph miller, ihad traded my friend phones for a sidekick lx the brown one. i am trying to sign - in to it from my sim card but it, will not letting me sign - in when i put my sim card in.


The last SIM card inserted married the phone. You can take the phone to a local provider and they have the unlock codes to unmarry the phone from the SIM. Then you will be able to put SIM in. This doesn't happen all of the time.

Here is your solution: 
Now follow these steps to a "T" don't do any shortcuts etc, this is "across the board" for all sidekicks it worked on my Sidekick Slide and on my Sidekick 2008.

1. Remove battery and the SIM card from the devise.
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 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, reinstall the SIM card and battery.
6. Power up device.
7. Once the device has fully rebooted, all prior information should be erased from the device and it should be restored back to the default factory setting.

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!

You can try this. It works on Sidekick 3's

1. at the same time hold the menu button (top left) and the jump button (bottom left)
2. This will bring you to the emergency screen (it gives you the option to make an emergency call)
3. Open to the keypad and hold in the menu+shift+q buttons at the same time.
4. The phone will reset and clear/unlock the security code

If that doesn't work you can trya 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.
