Sidekick 2 Wirless Problem No reception

Hey , One day my sidekick 2 just started losing service very frequently. It would kick me off and take minutes to get service back. Then it kept going and coming more than usual, then one nigth it i lost all service and it never came back. Even after a whole day I called tmobile and they said it was an issue with the wireless built it that it needed to be repaired. Is there any way I can repair this myself, if anyone knows please reply. I called to get an estimate and they said it can be upto $75. now thats a lot of money so im looking for a cheaper alternative. Thanks.

If it is a wireless problem, the cause could be from neighbours who have wireless networks that they have set up, with alot of phones/computer networks using the same channel the seting your phone may be using could cause a conflict with other networks. I dont know this item myself, but check if you can change the channel settings for the wireless section. this could solve your problem. Best Wishes

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...
