Trouble turning on my cell phone

I turn on the lock on my cell phone so as to prevent accidentally pressing a key on my key board. It was in this mode when it went off due to the battery running low. Since than, I have recharge the battery to the fullest, but the phone refuses to come back on even though I am pressing the power on button.

Re: Trouble turning on my cell phone

I would take out the battery and keep the power button pressed for 15 seconds. After this power cycle, put the battery back in and try to turn it on.

You may have to do a hard reset.

You do this by:

Holding down both left and right soft keys (the buttons above the red and green phone keys) while pressing the reset button (on the bottom of your phone) with the stylus. Hol down the soft keys until you see a message asking if you want to reset. You then need t slide the keyboard open and press the appropriate key.

Warning: this will reset your phone to manufacturers settings; all data will be erased. Your phone, however, will no longer have a password, and you will be able to set a new one.

About fixed dialing
If you enable fixed dialing number (FDN) mode, your device only makes calls to contacts on your FDN list. Your device can dial emergency numbers in FDN mode, even if the numbers are not in the FDN list. If your service provider plan includes SMS, you can also send SMS messages to contacts on your FDN list

so if you have this enabled chances are you have to turn it off.
this is how you turn it on so you should be able to use it as a guide to turn it off.

Turn on fixed dialing
1. In the phone options, click FDN Phone List.
2. Click the trackwheel.
3. Click Enable FDN mode.
4. Type the PIN2 code provided by your service provider.
5. Click the trackwheel.

6. Type a name and a phone number.
7. Click the trackwheel.
8. Click Save.

and finally some shortcut keys:
To open the phone, press the Send key.
To end a call, press the End key.
To call a selected contact or phone number, press the Send key. To call a speed dial number, hold the assigned key.
To add an extension to a phone number, press the X key. Type the extension number.

You can program the screen to lock while you are on a call.  Most likely you pressed something while on the call and it switched you to the photo gallery.  If you hold the option key and press end it will lock the screen while on a call.

You can program short cut keys.  Go to your settings are and you can find all kinds of neat things.

Good luck.

Sidekick II reset:
Drain your battery until your phone refuses to turn on, then charge it, the privacy lock should be off.

Press and hold the Menu key (the one with 3 lines) + the shift key and finally the "Q" key all at once.

Okay so you're at the privacy lock screen.
Okay press the Menu key and the Phone Mode key (the one with the circles) at the same time.
This should take you to emergency phone calls

Hold down the Back key (the one with the arrow) DON'T LET IT GO.

Now press MENU and PHONE MODE at the same time, now let go the BACK KEY

Then press BACK again and let go of MENU and PHONE.
Now press MENU and PHONE again and then let go of BACK.

It takes like 3 times to unlock it
but it always works.
