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.

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 need T-mobile sidekick ...& i am from India...


does your country have a tmobile network or tmobile store around there? if no, then it wont do any good for you to use it if there dont have any tmobile network to work with.
sorry to tell you that.
:[
but, you can try to get a unlocked sidekick and use a(whichever carriers you have in india) sim card and insert in a sidekick. but, you will only be able to use a sidekick are make a phone calls and send & receive a text and thats it. nothing else. 
hope that answered your question.

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

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.
