My name is joseph miller, ihad traded my friend phones for a sidekick lx the brown one. i am trying to sign - in to it from my sim card but it, will not letting me sign - in when i put my sim card in.

The last SIM card inserted married the phone. You can take the phone to a local provider and they have the unlock codes to unmarry the phone from the SIM. Then you will be able to put SIM in. This doesn't happen all of the time.

My sidekick slide cant read my new sim..........i need help...when ever i try am stuck at the sim center.

Hi, First request the phone's IMEI code by contacting customer service for T-Mobile. If you've been a customer long enough, T-Mobile may send the IMEI code, or the code identifying the specific phone, in a few days.Turn off the Sidekick Slide. Remove T-Mobile's SIM card, which is located near the battery. Insert the new provider's SIM card.Turn the Sidekick Slide back on. The phone will detect the new code and ask for the IMEI code. Enter the code. Now the Sidekick will operate using the new network.
Thank you

they will replace the software of your phone .
this may helpful to you.
now your Sim card will be supported.

Sidekick lx

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.

Sidekick II won't read sim card

Yeah, I can help. On the sidekick 08 when placing the card make sure you place the card with the cut edge facing the battery. This phone work with the sim card facing the opposite way. Hope this help:)
