Registeration process

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...

How to unlock special SIM code on Sidekick LX (T-Mobile) from USA

Hey. I own a Sidekick and I'm from the Philippines and you actually can use it anywhere, I figured.

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.
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.
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.
