3 digit combination


I use a sidekick Lx for At&t that I unlocked myself. When you start up your sidekick it should ask you for a network unlock or ask you to enable your sim card just click the cancel key on the top right of your device. Now click the top left menu button and go into your settings, and go to 'sim center' it'll ask you to enable your sim card again just enter a random 4 digit number and it'll tell you its wrong but thats ok, click ok and just cancel it out :) it'll then show you "disable sim lock" "change sim pin" change your sim pin to a number you'll remember because the way im showing you you'll have to do this every time you restart your phone (my sim pin was by default 1111) you can enter the same pin number for the old sim pin, and new sim pin options. Once you do that a white phone icon should appear on your screen underneath your time and date. Now, go back into your settings and go to network options, scan and select your network manually, and there you go :) Sorry though with all unlocked phones you'll only be able to make calls and text. No picture messaging sadly :( You need a T-mobile sidekick plan for all that :(

Every time i turn off my unlocked sidekick 3, i have to re-unlock it again on start up because it doesn't recognize my sim card. WHY??


i have to do the same and re unlock it. i bought mine of ebay and since its an unlocked phone, it can be used with any company so you have to keep unlocking it. Incase someone doesnt know how to unlock the phone... hold the 3 line button on the top left corner and hit the letter L

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

Phone wont stop the activation screen


You can bypass the activation screen by pressing "Menu" (the key with the 3 horizontal lines) and "L" - but you will need to do this every time you turn it on.

The only permanent way of getting rid of that screen is to actually activate it - and this needs a T-Mobile SIM with the sidekick service provisioned on it, and will have the effect of locking your device ID to the account of the person who's SIM you used, which might cause problems if you ever want to use the phone on T-Mobile later.

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
