Unlocked Sidekick 3 not receiving text messages but CAN send them

I recently purchased an Unlocked Sidekick 3 on ebay and when i got it, everything worked fine, but after a week or two, I was unable to receive text messages. I've looked all over the internet and I'm desperate to find a solution to my problem. Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated. Thank you all.

No, actually I have had the exact same thing happen to me. I got it a month ago brand new from the T-Mobile store. There isn't a setting to change whether you get texts. I don't know what to tell you bro it sucks.

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

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

Sidekick 3 Dont Connect (No Internet neither send messages)


So an unlocked Sidekick on ATT will only be able to do text and phone. The other sidekick features require the t-mobiles sidekick data plan. It is hard coded to the phone

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.

Sidekick 3 question


Your phone needs to be unlocked to use the text option. The code it is asking for is the unlock code.

All of the main sidekick features like internet, aim and email won't be available if unlocked and used on a carrier other than t-mobile.

text and calling will once unlocked though.

MMS messaging on RZR phone


I will need to know your who your service provider is to help you. Yet, I can suggest that you go to your service providers website and go to the support section. Then look for MMS profiles or settings. Many of the providers will send the settings to fix the problem straight to your phone. This also means that you bought an unlocked phone by the way.
