I bought a sidekick 2 off ebay and everything on it works fine except that when i leave the phone alone it doesnt alert me to incoming calls or messeges, it will only alert me to them if i keep the screen refreshed which is kind of impossible to do with my lifestyle, please someone help me. i live in england so not many people here know how to use a sidekick!

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
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 can tell you the sidekick 3 will not operate properly with out a back cover. In fact, if you remove the rear cover while powered on, it will post a warning message on the screen. Because you tested and successfully operated the phone with out complication with a back installed I fell confident you should have have any problem with the phone when your back cover arrives.
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.
try turning it on and typing 1234 it should work it worked for me and if that doesnt work try goin to a cell phone repair shop they should be able to unlock it. if not get your money back for the phone and buy one at the tmobile store. some stuff on ebay doesnt work i bought an ipod off ebay and it broke the next day it broke so try gettin your money back if nutin else works!
