Follow the instructions for the sidekick 3.


1) Remove your sim card

2) From the jump screen: Menu -> Settings -> System Info

3) Press Menu+Shift+X Select OK to clear the flash.

4) Press Menu+Shift+R Select OK to clear the login information.

5) Perform a hard reset now. This will reboot the device.

To perform a hard reset:

SK3 - remove the battery while the device is on.

6) Call your carrier and ask them to detach your device IMEI from the username locked in. Once that is done, hard reset without your SIM card inserted. from: sidekickskin.net/Sidekick-Ti.

T-Mobile sidekick II keeps resetting


I had this problem with a new phone, and T-mobile gave me the following instructions.

Try this first:
1) Turn on phone with SIM chip in it.
2)hold down the "@" + "1" + "0" down simultaneously until phone turns off, then back on again. This should fix the problem. otherwise try this,

1) remove battery and SIM.

2) press and hold down the "w" key, and while holding it down insert the battery only.

3)A little face will appear on the screen, then a reboot button. Press the reboot button. Once the phone reboots, insert the SIM. One of those two should fix the problem.

Sidekick III Stuck


1) Remove the battery from your device
2) Flip open the screen
3) with the battery removed, press and hold the W key on the keyboard. Press and hold it and don't let go until I say so. :)
4) Put the battery in (you're still holding "W" right? Good). This is a little tricky to do but you can do it.
5) Keep holding W! :)
6) The device will boot to a screen that has a picture of a SK with Xs for eyes and stars spinning around it's head, like it's been clonked on the head. When you see this, you can let go of the "W" key.
7) After a few more seconds you'll see a screen that says "Sorry! Please restart your device by selecting the Reboot button. If this screen appears again, contact Customer Care."
8) Click the Reboot button on the screen, and hope for the best.
