You need to push the Menu + L Buttons at the same time. It will bypass that screen.

My ATT sim card locked on my sidekick and it wont unlock


That is the only way to unlock the PUK,Just Call and tell them you need the PUK code and read the number off the sim card to the customer care person when they ask for it.

SIM WONT WORK


It is waiting for the Sidekick feature activation, which AT&T doesn't have. You can try having them add a data feature, but I doubt it will work. Sidekick was specifically made for T-Mobile and not meant to be used with any other provider.

Bought a sidekick3 off of ebay and it is unlocked.


I will give it to you for free. Push Menu + L to bypass the waiting for activation screen. You will need to do this every time you restart the phone.

My ATT sim card locked on my sidekick and it wont unlock


Go to att.com log in to your account and under phone devices there is a link to obtain a puk code but it has to be entered using Att phone. That was how I unlocked my sim card.

Unlock Sidekick ID


I found this guide online.
Please let me know if this works!

"1) Insert the ATT SIM card into the back of the T-Mobile Sidekick ID (it should be located behind the battery).

2) Turn on the Sidekick ID, wait for the screens to load.

3) When the screen says "Waiting for Activation", hold the top left button (the "Menu" button with the three lines) on the Sidekick ID and hold the letter "L" on the QWERTY pad at the same time. After a few seconds, let go of the buttons.

4) If Step 3 is done correctly, the Sidekick should be directed to the jumpscreen and display all of the Menu's of the Sidekick ID.

Sidekick 3


1. Insert your non-TMobile sim card 2. The phone display says "Enter the code". 3. On your Sidkick, press the "X" button. 4. You will see the menu. 5. Choose the left-up angle button. 6. Choose "setting"--->"network"--->"scan and select manually". 7. The phone will search for your network. 8. When your Sidekick finds your network, you can use the phone to make calls

with other sim cards you cant use data services...t-mobile uses different type of connection from other companies
