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?)

Your Sidekick operates on a GSM cellular network. Your Boost SIM card (and Boost Mobile phones) operate on an iDEN cellular system. You cannot use a Boost SIM card in a Sidekick. (FYI - SIM cards cannot be unlocked. Only cellphones phones can be unlocked.)
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.
Hi, well to start things off, I have the exact same problem. I want the Sidekick but cannot get the internet and my mom won't pay it for me. So what you have to do is buy it for the retail price, therefore "just the phone". Imagine it like this: you're buying a computer without internet. Same principle. When you buy it for the retail price, it will be a bit more expensive but you don't need internet and it will save you about $30 a month. Which is a life saver. So all you have to do is get it for the retail price, they cannot refuse. If they do either bring it up to the owner, or forget about the phone.
I can tell you that if you have pictures on them they have to be put into a specific folder to view on the phone. The easiest thing to do is format the card on your computer. After I did that the sidekick had no problems reading mine. If you ever add photos to the card from an outside source such as usb cable make sure you put the pictures in the exact same folder the sidekick camera puts them in.
