Well for the past week or so, Sidekick has been having problems with receiving text messages from other service providers such as AT&T and Sprint. It is best that you call up customer service to find a solution.

Its possible that its not your phone. If you can send messeges, and make and recieve calls, then its probably not your phone. Sounds like it could be a lost connection from the other persons phone. If you dont think it is, then you can contact T-Mobile and see what they say about it. Either call them to troubleshoot, or take the phone in.

Sidekick 3 question


Your phone needs to be unlocked to use the text option. The code it is asking for is the unlock code.

All of the main sidekick features like internet, aim and email won't be available if unlocked and used on a carrier other than t-mobile.

text and calling will once unlocked though.
