    Is the sidekick 08 wireless ?

  • robinstokkel Feb 24, 2009

    Diana, your solution does not work for me. I bought the iSim and tried to put it, with my own sim, in the Sidekick 2008, then I had to enter a special code. Pressed Cancel, then I had Emergency Calls only. In the right upper corner it says 'SIM? 7'. Then I inserted my SIM in my other phone and connected to the T-Mobile (Netherlands) network. Inserted my simcard togehter with the iSim in the Sidekick again still the same as before..

    Anyone who can help?

Hello.. I live in denmark and I just got the sidekick 2008.
I bought an Isim (ver. 2) on ebay. I payed $9.
Then I put It under my non tmobile sim card and powered it up and I could se my phonebook and other stuff from my sim. But it keept saying: emergency calls only.
Then you have to put it into a nother mobile phone to get signal. Then put it back in the SK with the Isim and then it works. Just remember to update the sim and phone with the settings from your current phone company by sms. Then it wont happen again.

It worked for me. so I hope it would help others...

What is code for sidekick 2008 to i gana unlook for att


The sidekick from T-mobile is unlock-able with IMEI or MEP unlock code, I run a mobile shop and recently unlocked 5 of these sidekicks this month. You can get your code online, its very easy and takes couple of seconds to enter the unlock code and have your phone free from restriction. Not to mention once unlocked you can use it ATT or any other GSM network. You can get your code from here.

Does anyone have an unlock code for a sidekick gekko pv210 2008 please greatly appriciated


Hello,

the truth is that you cannot unlock the phone for free.

There is a free site you can try out first but it is for soft
unlock not hard unlock.You can use this link for the soft unlock,
then trying out that with this site unlocktotalk.com/UnlockCodeInstructions.htm,
you will now try out the hard unlock with the site below
Note:hard unlock is not free,You will be charged to get your unlock code.
The only way by which you can get the unlock code for free is by calling your service provider
and requesting for your unlock code.
If you service provider refuses to give it to you, then there is no other place where you can
get a free unlock code.
Visit the link below if you are interested in buying the unlock code:
mobileunlocked.com/mobile_unlocking.php

Good luck.

HOW CAN I UNLOCK MY SIDEKICK 2008 FOR FREE


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.
