I recently bought a Motorola phone on an online auction and it came with no sim card and the previous owner had put a security code on the phone. He has not responded to my emails asking for the code. Is there a way to get passed this code as I would like to be able to use the phone

Sim cards are manufactererd accordign to phone types. However physically compartible sim cards usually are least functional with another device not intended to communicate. The sim card provides the link of communication also once established should not be tempered with else distorts the communications linkage. The code is the protection key that identifies the sim card to the phone that you own. First, tempering with a sim card during a functioning phones capability distracts from the service communcation provider. As a security medium, so after the sim card has been dislodged, the signal connection is by passed requirng a reset from the provider technitian. Contact the phone provider to revive missing sim card codes, or purchase another sim card to set a new code provided at the sells. Goodluck
May i ask what it says when it asks for a code as it may be your sidekick is not unlocked at all. If it is however unlocked, and i appolagise if i am wrong, it may be asking you for a phone unlock code which the previous owner put on it. You would need to contact the previous owner for this code as the mobile phone provider will NOT reset it for anyone else as there will be a security question to answer before they will reset it!!
sounds like the phone was set up to ask for a sim password from the old user. Now that you put your card in it wants the password but the phone does not know the card has been switched. Ask your buddy the code to unlock the bios and disable the password. If al lelse fails put his old sim card back in and then disable the password for the sim card. This feature is a security so people cannot access your contact stored on your sim card.
try this trick, when youre at the screen where it asks for the security code, take out battery cover and try to take the battery off the metal contacts and stick it back quickly (not longer than a sec) you only want to simulate a reset. this may help u bypass that screen and enter your home screen as if you have entered the code. i am not sure if u can try and change the security code from there, but what u may try to do (lets hope the security code isnt the code u put in to "reset" the phone) is reset the phone to factory settings.
i hope this helps you. i am only suggesting you this off my memory since i have came across the same problem before when i wanted to use an old razr but have forgotten the code.
