    I have a cracked screen on my 2008. The LCD itself is not busted but the protective lens is cracked. I'm having a hard time finding just a replacement lens on a site not affiliated with Ebay. Anybody no where I can find this part and possibly the cost?

    I have been looking for months for a replacement LCD. T-Mobile does not offer anything other than new Sidekick with a 2 year service extension for $200+. I can't understand why they don't offer a replacement screen for a $100 or so.

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


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,
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:

Good luck.

My sidekick 2008 (gekko) backlight doesnt work i can

The problem with your sidekick 2008 screen is the backlight is burned out. this can happen if dropped or if it gets wet.

The only way to fix it is to replace the screen. It is fairly easy to do and new ones run about 65 dollars on ebay.

Below is a guide for the replacement and a link to buy the 2008 LCD screen.

My sidekick "gecko" is not working properly. The trackball is not responding but selects things on its own.

More than likely, the trackball on your Sidekick 2008 (gekko) is really dirty.Overtime, dirt and grime gets in between the ball and the sensors.

It is really easy to clean it, you will need q-tips and IPA alcohol. No dis assembly is usually needed!

Check out the Video at the following link to see how the trackball cleaning on the Sidekick 2008 is done
