Your card might be a little dirty and needs cleaning in the metallic parts where it connects to your phone. If your card is too old it might need to be replaced by your phone company. Try and insert another SIM from a friend and see if it works. Also please try to insert YOUR SIM in another phone and see if it is OK. If it works in another phone then the problem might be with your phone's connectors.

I have 3. suggestions for you:
1.You should do a "HARD" reset to get everything back to factory (warning: you will lose all of you saved information on the phone.)
2. Go into setting and set the "Network" settings to manual, then ask the phone to search for your Network.
3. Could also be a Tower issue. Call T-Mo and ask if they can chack signals and switch you to a different Tower.

The SIM card must be of the same service. For example, you can't use an AT&T sim card on a T-Mobile phone. If they are the same service, your sim is not made to work with that phone. You will have to get a new sim at your local retailer.

How to open sidekick and get my simcard out

The SIM card door is covered by a rubber casing that peels back. Pull back the rubber flap to access the SIM card door. The flap that needs to be pulled back is the top left corner of the Sidekick above the Menu key.

Insert the SIM card into the slot with the gold contacts facing up and the cut corner facing out. When you release the SIM card, make sure it is locked into position behind the catch so it does not spring out. Replace the bumper, and then turn on the device.

It appears that inserting the SIM into a Sidekick is a rather tricky process. If the above does not completely solve your problem, here is a link to more details on inserting the SIM card.

The simcard is inserted and my phone is showing no sim

Since the SIM card is automatically read when inserted, verify it has been correctly inserted. If you have another phone available, try inserting it in that phone. If you can make a phone call, the card should be working. If not, your card may need to be replaced.
