Question about T-Mobile Sidekick
Dear All Experts,
I have a problem now. When I visit Cambodia, I took my phone to use a SIM in Cambodia. But Sidekick 2008 doesn't allow me to use it. It request me to enter special SIM code.
Please help me to solve this problem.
i also bought the sidekick lx .. i bought mine in Cambodia and it said it was unlocked but when i put my at&t SIM card in the phone it says i need some type of SIM code for it to work .. any ideas on how to get the code ?
Not sure if this works with the 2008 but its something you can try, i put a sim card in my LX and was asking for a special code to unlock the phone, well right now tmobile isn't unlocking the sidekick, but you can trick the phone into using the sim card. First go to your settings, go to "SIM Center" and click on disable sim lock, enter in whatever your sim password is (if you dont know your sim password get your PUK (pin unblocking key) number which customer service will give you if you call 611, you can change that SIM pin by typing **05*PUKnumber*newpin*newpin#) now if you wanted to change it to "0123" if your puk was 9483992 its 7-9 digits you would type **05*9483992*0123*0123# now your sim pin is 0123. (trying not to make this super complicated) it will say sim pin not accepted click ok, now click change sim pin you can type the same sim pin 3 times if you want, 0123 0123 0123 now at the top of the screen bars will show up with a white phone beside it, go to Settings-Network Options-Scan and Select Manually, the SIM network should come up, click ok when it finds it and it will connect, now you can call and text on whatever sim you have in the phone
