If you do not have the sidekick data plan, then you will not be able to get internet, use chat, or email.

Bought a sharp sidekick2008 cell phone from ebay usa imported to the uk suppose to be locked to tmobile when i put my tmobile sim in it request a special code to enable the sim can u help


You can call T-Mobile and inform them that you want to use the phone in the UK on their system - with your T-Mobile SIM card and they will more than likely either unlock the phone or provide you the 'special' code to use it in the UK.

Your other alternative is to purchase an unlock code from eBay. The choice is really yours.

I just bought a Sidekick 3 on Ebay and I want to know how to unlock it for iowa wireless ( in Cedar Rapids, Ia ). Any help would be great... my e-mail is... k.tiffany36@yahoo.com Thank you.


Unfortunately, sidekick devices are the only phones T-Mobile will not or can not unlock. You will have to try and find a third party company or program that will assist you to do this.

How do you unlock a sidekick 2008 ??


Hello.. I live in denmark and I just got the sidekick 2008.
I bought an Isim (ver. 2) on ebay. I payed $9.
Then I put It under my non tmobile sim card and powered it up and I could se my phonebook and other stuff from my sim. But it keept saying: emergency calls only.
Then you have to put it into a nother mobile phone to get signal. Then put it back in the SK with the Isim and then it works. Just remember to update the sim and phone with the settings from your current phone company by sms. Then it wont happen again.

It worked for me. so I hope it would help others...

I bought a sidekick 3 off ebay but it is still locked to the previous owner's sim card number


I had the same problem with the sidekick i bought off of ebay , when you cal customer care just tell them you got it off ebay and you need the old users information deleted, they will give you step by step instructions on how to do so. Remember to not call on your sidekick becasue you will have to restart the phone.

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.
