SIM WONT WORK


It is waiting for the Sidekick feature activation, which AT&T doesn't have. You can try having them add a data feature, but I doubt it will work. Sidekick was specifically made for T-Mobile and not meant to be used with any other provider.

Switch to a sidekick and how do i unlock it with my regular sim card in it?


They use Edge signals on those phones.  You have to call T-Mobile to get the data plan added to your phone.  They will activate it for you as well.

I had the same problem when I bought my unlocked Sidekick.  Hold down the Menu and "L" buttons for about 5 seconds until the "waiting for activation" message goes away.

Unlock Sidekick ID


I found this guide online.
Please let me know if this works!

"1) Insert the ATT SIM card into the back of the T-Mobile Sidekick ID (it should be located behind the battery).

2) Turn on the Sidekick ID, wait for the screens to load.

3) When the screen says "Waiting for Activation", hold the top left button (the "Menu" button with the three lines) on the Sidekick ID and hold the letter "L" on the QWERTY pad at the same time. After a few seconds, let go of the buttons.

4) If Step 3 is done correctly, the Sidekick should be directed to the jumpscreen and display all of the Menu's of the Sidekick ID.
