My son passed away two weeks ago and I'm trying to get his phone unlocked so I can maybe get some closure as to what was going on that could have led to his death. He was only 18. Teen mobile will not help...


I don't know if this will work. I just found it on this site. Good luck and sorry for your loss.

In order to hard reset the sidekick u have to take the battery cover off when it is off press and hold the {R} letter and take the battery out while still holding {R}, count 4 seconds and place the battery back into the phone while still holding {R}. If this was done right then right then you should see the phone restarting and when it is fully powered on then u should see that the phone lock is completely removed and the phone is not blocked at all

Hi - regarding sidekick 3


if the screen is black all the time most likely is the ribbon, but if it is just the camera, the the steps to do is the ones on the post, i've fixed a few that way i fixed one that took like 10-12 times before it started working again.
the sidekick 2 "skii" is known for the cam. to lock up on it.

My sidekick is going crazy wont turn on anymore


This problem was said a lot by some users when the first batch of sidekick 3's were released last year. What you do is do a soft reset @ + 1 + 0 and then when it shuts down quickly hold down the W and when you see it restart you should see the sidekick 3 picture with a face on it and stars above its head, and from there you select English and you follow what the screen says to help you get past the bootup screen.

if you continue to have a problem, try removing your memory card and see how the phone works for a while.

yep, you can do a master reset.

Want to clear out info on your Sidekick info (ie: to sell yours)?

1) Remove your sim card
2) From the jump screen: Menu -> Settings -> System Info
3) Press Menu+Shift+X Select OK to clear the flash.
4) Press Menu+Shift+R Select OK to clear the login information.
5) Perform a hard reset now. This will reboot the device.
To perform a hard reset:

SK2 - Press the power button and reset button at the same time. Unit will vibrate when reset. You can use a paper clip or similiar to hit the reset button located behind the screen.


6) Call your carrier and ask them to detach your device IMEI from the username locked in. Once that is done, hard reset without your SIM card inserted.

You're done.
