how long does it have on the charger? if its recently, just allows give it some time to turns it on. sometimes, it take a while to get it boost up right after few mins. if, it hasnt come on for a long time, then its possible your charger is bad and or the part inside of sidekick 2 get jacked. so, lets try this one:-try use another charger if you have one laying around somewhere or ask one of your friends to use their charger(if you dont have extra charger on you)-charge it up and waiting for a fews if its not come on, then you'd probably will have to look a cheaper sidekick 2 around on ebay or other websites or if you have some experience know how to take apart of it, then more power to you and you can look up and find a broken sidekick 2 and replacement whatever that your sidekick 2 need to get it fixed. hope everything works out for you, soon. if anything, please let me know if need any more assistance. be more than glad to help as best as i can. :] so, you have a good one.
make sure your sidekick 3 is turned off completely then take the battery, sim card, and memory card out and lays them on the towel so they can get dries as well place your sidekick 3 in a big bowel with white rice in so they can absorb the wettness off of it and leave them all stay there for overnight or 2 days to let them dries and after 2 days up, put everything back in and turn your sidekick on and see if its worked again.
if its not working, then your sol and started to save up some money once again. or you can try and sell it for repair and parts on ebay or another websites and use that money to get yourself another sidekick 3 or wait for a new sidekick to come out that has been talking about it for a while is called a sidekick blade if you havent already heard about it. so yeah. its suppposed to be launch around in summer or fall then use that money for it, if you perfers that or you can go ahead and find a cheaper sidekick 3 around on ebay or you can check on CL(craiglist) to see if they have some with in a good condition for cheap. but, also make sure theyre not scam you for money or give you a fake advertise about it that they dont really have it. (just give you a lil heads up).
Yes I have a friend that works for T Mobile and he is at my work right now and that is what he told me so I know that it is the sim card. Even though it works in other phones the config is bad for your phone
Hey. I own a Sidekick and I'm from the Philippines and you actually can use it anywhere, I figured.
Procedures: 1. Place the SIM Card and open the phone. A window will immediately appear demanding for your SIM PIN. Just press CANCEL. 2. Press Options/Menu or whatever the 3-horizontal bars on the upper left of your phone's called. Go to SETTINGS, then SIM CENTER. 3. Press Unlock SIM CARD 4. If you have a SIM PIN Code, type it. If not, just type 1234. then ENABLE. T he code won't be accepted. Press CANCEL. 5. Press CHANGE SIM PIN 6. In the Old SIM PIN, type your PIN. If you don't have one, just type 1234 again. Type 1234 for the other 2 questions. 7. SUBMIT 8. When "Waiting to register...." appears, all at once press OPTIONS, Letter L and that key on the lower right of your phone. 9. Exit 10. Go to settings again. then NETWORK OPTIONS 11. In the NETWORK SELECTION, press SCAN AND SELECT MANUALLY. Your phone will look for networks and when it's over, press DONE.
Try holding down Menu-jump to get to the emergency screen. Then hold down on menu-shift-Q and release. It will ask if you want to reset phone. IT WILL RESET AND DELETE EVERYTHING!!!!. It will be like new. Except sim. This works with sidekick 2, not sure with others.
