I just bought a sidekick 3 from ebay. when first turning my sidekick on there is a message saying the sim card is waiting for activation or something or another. i receive and send text with no problems...


To be able to send pictures and what not with the sidekick 3 you need to have the sidekick data plan. That is part of the error message you are getting when first turning it on.Without it, all you can do is text and phone

How do you unlock a sidekick 2008 ??


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...

Sidekick wont turn on


If you can, try a friends battery, either from a sidekick ID or sidekick 3. The Sidekick ID seems to be having the same issue as the sidekick 3 whefre the charging port goes bad. The best worka round for that is to get a charginfg cradel that has a spare battery slot.

Sidekick ID


Sidekick ID does not receive picture messages. You have to get them emailed to your mobile email to get them onto your phone.

MY Sidekick is having Trouble.....


With the sidekick you can only receive picture messages when they are send to your email address that you have with the sidekick plan. If you don't have the sidekick plan you will never get your picture messages.
