Its impossible to use the T-Mobile sidekick on any other network as it is designed only for use on the t-mobile network it cannot even be used on T-Mobile in a different country e.g. T-Mobile US sidekick cannot be used on T-Mobile UK , Even if somehow you managed to unlock the device then you still couldnt take it away from the network as it requires special features on the network to be used and those are only available on T-Mobile . So really if you want a sidekick you can only have it on T-Mobile.

You're out of luck. Verizon and T-Mobile use different cellular networks. A T-mobile phone can be unlocked to be used by cingular possibly, but Verizon and Sprint are definately not going to work.

Want to unlock an older Motorola Razr3v from Verizon

When starting a contract with your provider (Verizon), most of the time the mobile phone is SIM-locked. This means, the phone will only operate when you insert only a SIM-card from your provider.
If the contract-period has expired, they should unlock this mobile phone for you at minimum costs, upon your request. This can be done by contacting customer-service.

If you want to unlock the phone, while you still are under contract with Verizon, they are allowed to charge you a certain amount of money. After all, the contract is ment to earn money, which should cover the costs of the mobile phone and the costs for calling by this phone.

There's another way to unlock your mobile phone. There are plenty of shops who offer the service of unlocking your mobile phone. The costs can variate between 5 USD upto,.. well whatever they want / like. Unlocking means, they're going to re-program your mobile phone. And for this, they need dedicated hardware and softeware.

I bought a sidekick but have AT&T service.

TMobile has "the catalog" service as other providers have different multimedia apps to add things to your phone. If you are interested in themes, you can get those from other websites ( is one) if you Sidekick has an SD card. You can get more help with themes from If you are wanting apps, games, and ringtones, they can only be provided through your service provider, and if they (AT&T) have programmed the phone for their network and your MDN for you, they may be able to assist you with a way to get them to your phone.
I worked for Alltel and also have a lot of experience with Verizon's networks. AT&T, I'm just not sure what they can do for you.

T-Mobile Sidekick ID Unlock

Try holding down Menu-jump to get to the emergency screen. Then hold down on menu-shift-Q and release. It will ask if you want to reset phone. IT WILL RESET AND DELETE EVERYTHING!!!!. It will be like new. Except sim. This works with sidekick 2, not sure with others.

How to unlock for overseas

Sadly you cant actually unlock the sidekick as it is a T-Mobile specific device so hannah you've probably just wasted your money on a device that you cant use and Mwillip it sounds as though you're having troubles using the sms service in the states contact T-Mobile to get help with the settings.
