How do You unlock a sidekick 08?


Your Sidekick operates on a GSM cellular network. Your Boost SIM card (and Boost Mobile phones) operate on an iDEN cellular system. You cannot use a Boost SIM card in a Sidekick. (FYI - SIM cards cannot be unlocked. Only cellphones phones can be unlocked.)

SIDEKICK LX


Here is your solution: 
Now follow these steps to a "T" don't do any shortcuts etc, this is "across the board" for all sidekicks it worked on my Sidekick Slide and on my Sidekick 2008.

1. Remove battery and the SIM card from the devise.
2. Flip the sidekick open; press and hold the letter "r" on the keypad
3. While holding the letter "r", place the battery back in the device. DO NOT INSERT SIM CARD YET.
4. The Sidekick will restart itself twice. Please make sure not to let the letter "r" go until it has fully rebooted.
5. Once it has fully rebooted, remove the battery, reinstall the SIM card and battery.
6. Power up device.
7. Once the device has fully rebooted, all prior information should be erased from the device and it should be restored back to the default factory setting.

Usually when that happens it means you have too many thing uploaded on the phone or you need a new memory card (not the sim card) Hopes this helps. =)

Installing sim card in sidekick II


hello, hope these instructions help: 1. To expose the SIM card slot, peel back the bumper from the top-left edge of the device. (fig 1) 2. Insert the SIM into the slot with the gold contacts facing forward and the cut corner facing out. (fig 2) 3. When you release the SIM, make sure it is locked into position behind the catch so it will not spring out. 4. Replace the bumper and turn on the device. Any problems, let me know :) Si
