Since you took your SIM and put it in her phone it probably needs time to sync with T-mobile server. If your plan does not include data, it may be unable to connect to do this. I would suggest calling T-Mobile and asking them to send an update to the phone. I know when I first got my Sidekick 08 it took a few hours for MyFaves to show up even after it was activated, working and connected to the network. You didn't mention how long ago you made this switch. The best thing is just let it rest a few hours, make sure it has good signal and network connection. It should come along. (Did you have MyFaves on your previous phone?)

hello,it could be affected by two things, Firstly,it's either the screen or flex is faulty and if this is affected all you need to do is just to get a new flex and replace it,this should automatically power on your sidekick mobile phone,but if the problem persist i will suspect it's a screen problem.and if it's a screen problem you will have to get a new screen and replace it if you are electronically inclined,but if not i will advice you visit an authorized expert to fix it for you. secondly,it could be the power botton that is faulty and if it is you will have to get a new one.when you try powering it on does the screen display anything like breaking lines,if it does then it is a flex problem.
You can use yout Sidekick without internet for text messaging and calls only. You'll not be able to download rigntones, games, apps or themes; you'll not be able to see your MyFaves in the screen (if you have a faves plan); you'll not be able to set a security code in the phone; you'll not be able to use any messenger. What is worse, without internet if your phone dies everything, including your contacts, get erased from the phone memory. Also some phones like Sidekick 2008 do not show the name of yout contact in incomming sms or ring with incoming sms without the data feature.
if you dont pay the extra 24.99 a month for the DATA SERVICE plan stuff ur Myfaves wont show up. same thing is with mine, i called tmobile, they said that if i dont want the data plan i dont have to have it, however my myfaves (though still working) wouldnt show up on my phone...but if i needed to change them or reset them that i would ahve to do it online with my online account or through customer service
hi if the phone is on the loading screen then press the menu+l key it should bring you to the home screen what you should do is call tmobile and let them know that you just bought it and you want the sidekick plan thats the only way your setting will stay
Francisco849, The same thing happened to me today. I tried removing and replacing the battery and SIM card, then waited a few minutes and tried again. After this didn't work, I called T-Mobile and the lady, Shawn, told me to check the small box to the left of the SIM card. If it's red, you have water damage, and you need to order a replacement. But your Sidekick does have a warranty, just make sure to call them and order a [free] replacement before your warranty expires. Glad I could be of help. :)
