Sidekick lx no alert on messages

Help! My Sidekick lx doesn't alert me of incoming text messages. When I do receive one, it doesn't id the person, just the phone number. T-mobile told me to try a new sim card...that didn't work! doesn't alert me when i have a text message and i don't wanna wait for the two minute reminder. i also only receive the number and not the name of the contact when i get a message. these are simple basic functions all phones should have now and having to pay for a data plan for this phone to be a phone is ridiculous and robbery. t-mobile- stick together...?. what a bunch of bull ! thank god they don't make fire alarms or smoke detectors. -need a solution that doesn't involve my wallet

Because your screen is broken and that can only be fixed if you have it replaced.

SOURCE: different sim card into a sidekick

if you are using the same carrier you can, just change the sim card to the sidekick and you should be fine.

SOURCE: sidekick lx

well i dont have a solution for this problem and i am really mad that i have to go through whole process to find out who is texting me but, if it makes your life any easier, you should press that menu button in the top left corner and "r" at the same time to reply that way the name shows up then just press the "cross/delete" button in the right top corner to get out without saving it to drafts. hope that makes a difference

My sidekick lx text alert tone does not work. the sidekick does not vibrate or make a sound when i receive a text.


This most likely has to do with the sound profile that you currently have set. Go into the sound options, see if there is a detailed option available to increase/decrease the ring volume or vibration.

Some phones have the option to turn on an alert and vibration for text/incoming call.s

My sidekick lx wont alert me when i get a text message


I'm having the same i.
I'm reading up on it and apparently it's because I don't have a data plan for my sidekick lx, which is REALLY screwed up.

Sidekick lx spacebar


Go to:

http://www.fixmysidekick.com/sidekick-lx-or-sidekick-2008-space-bar-not-working/164/


Or just read this...:



sidekick2008spacebarpicture.jpgIs the space bar on your Sidekick LX not working when you are trying to text or in AIM? Do you have thesame space bar button problem on your T-mobile Sidekick 2008? Does the Sidekick spacebar work in other apps though?
If so then this fix is for you.
1. Open the AutoText & Spelling screen. From the Jump screen, press the MENU button, then select Settings > AutoText & Spelling.
2. Uncheck the following settings:
    • Highlight misspelled words
    • Auto correct spelling
3. Exit out of the settings screen and try it out.
Hopefully, this will have solved your issue.
How to check for misspelled words with these two options unchecked?
Run a manual spell check on T-mobile Sidekick: To run a spell check while in a text field from any Edit Text submenu, or by using the keyboard shortcut by pressing MENU +S.
