Unless you are on the t-mobile network and using the Sidekick Data plan, the messenger service, email and internet will not work.

Only the text and phone features will.

Sorry

Contact Nokia tech support and they can help you with the unlock procedure since they can get you the codes you need to unlock it.

    What GrinningFool is telling you is correct.  Sidekick only works with Edge, GSM, and GPRS networks as well.  Regardless Nokia will unlock it for you but there is no guarantee that the messenger service will work with your provider.

Those phone are dependent on T-Mobile data services using Edge, GMS, and GPRS networks only.  You can get the phone unlocked by contacting Nokia tech support but there is no guarantee that all features will be available by your provider.

I have a t mobile sidekick and and i have at&t chip how can i unlock the sidekick


you will need to get a UNLOCKED sidekick. otherwise, you cant.
[that is if you got a sidekick that is restricted with tmobile network only]

however, there is actually have some unlock code that can able
to un-locked it but you wont be able to use anything on it
especially only make a phone call and use txt and thats basic it.

unlock code thing can be found on ebay.

Sidekick 3 question


Your phone needs to be unlocked to use the text option. The code it is asking for is the unlock code.

All of the main sidekick features like internet, aim and email won't be available if unlocked and used on a carrier other than t-mobile.

text and calling will once unlocked though.
