It's an issue with the SIM card. I was on the phone with customer support for half an hour and then I just decided to take it in. They switched out my sim card and all was well. They didn't have any real reason as to why it needed to be replaced but as soon as it was I got all my text messages I didn't get earlier.

I just bought a sidekick 3 from ebay. when first turning my sidekick on there is a message saying the sim card is waiting for activation or something or another. i receive and send text with no problems...


To be able to send pictures and what not with the sidekick 3 you need to have the sidekick data plan. That is part of the error message you are getting when first turning it on.Without it, all you can do is text and phone

I have a question?..


theyre right. it wont work for Verizon to use the full features on the sidekick. because, verizon and sidekick plan are totally different from each other. and only thing it will works for you that you can use the sidekick are sms(text) and to make a phone calls with a verizon sim card in and that pretty much it. 
and also, because a sidekick is restricted to tmobile. of course, but only things differently about it is the sidekick plan is only will works great for a sidekick itself that will definitely benefit you better to have/use the full features such as email, mms, notes, and etc. 

i mean, are you trying to use a sidekick with your verzion sim card in it or what? if so, then pretty much just like i stated right above.
sorry. :[

Unlocked Sidekick 3 not receiving text messages but CAN send them


Because the one you must of brought probaly had like a lock on it or probaly the person you got it from stole it right and now the person who orignally had it has shut the phone off but not completely so thats why maybe you should get your money back and get one from the T-Mobile store like me
mine works great =D i love my 3 and also i recently Brought A 2008 so maybe you try that one it has better features any way

Text message problem with sidekick slide


Well for the past week or so, Sidekick has been having problems with receiving text messages from other service providers such as AT&T and Sprint. It is best that you call up customer service to find a solution.

Text messages not comin through


I have the same problem. I think it happens when the battery goes completely dead. I didn't get my address book contacts back though. All my text msgs and numbers not on my sim got deleted. I wonder if its the battery or the phone.. hmmm....

SIDEKICK ID!!!!!!


I have a sidekick 2008 that is unlocked with a universal unlocking chip.
I had the same problem, and I spent hours and hours online looking for a solution. Soft resets, full resets, turning wireless off then on, turning my phone off then on. None of it worked.
What did work, was when I desperately needed to send a text, I put my simcard (vodafone network) into my old vodafone phone. After I put it back into my sidekick, and voila, it worked! Not sure why. But every now and then my sidekick gets stuck on emergency calls only and error NET9, I put my sim in a vodafone phone (for you which ever network your sim is from) then back into my sidekick, and it works again.
