Question about T-Mobile Sidekick® 3 Cellular Phone

1 Answer

The SK3 It was purchased unlocked and worked great for months. Now it will not get any signal when the SIM card is inserted. I think it is because the battery taken out. It is a TMobile phone and we have Centennial Wireless as the carrier. Any suggestions?

You kind of just answered your own question.

so, which mean, you will only get it work is to make a phone
call and text. nothing more.

so, i think you need to get a unlock code which it will allow you
to use it again. but, i dont think unlock code will any better anyway.
but, it worth to give a shot and see.

it can be found on ebay.

and good luck.

Hi there,i had purchased htc thunder bolt a month ago from Miami US and since it was a lock piece i also bought unlock code online.Now the biggest challenge i am facing is when i put my local active sim...


Hi, i think your step not correct when entering HTC Thunderbolt unlock code. You must use your old sim card to unlock your phone, don't use new sim card before that phones completely unlocked. That's why your sim card not recognized. If this method not working maybe you get wrong HTC unlock code, since it's little rare for me. Usually if you bought unlock code reputable online store, they usually send unlock code with complete instruction how to insert that unlock code in your phones. The bottom line try my method and if not working get new code. Thanks.

NB: don't enter your wrong code to many times in your phones, it will caused your HTC to hard locked state and you can't use that phone even you put your old sim card.

I bought a lg xenon and it keeps saying sim card initializing or sim card not ready! Why is it doing that?


Either your SIM or your SIM reader have probably gone bad try getting another SIM first tho and if that doesnt work you may need to have the phone repaired

My pantech matrix cell phone says insert sim card


This problem arises sometimes because the mobile is unable to read the SIM. May be you should fold a small piece of paper in the same size of the SIM and keep it on top of the SIM and then insert the Battery. I think this will solve your problem.

Got a motorola razr v3 on ebay. Not reading SIM card.


It may be caused that when you take out sim from old phome it has damaged, try for old one is it still working? if not then your sim is dead, also old phones made SIM-s to be bend and such SIM-s have difficlt electrical connection with new phones.
Also find if "this sim only" is activated in your phone.
It must give you signal, Insert sim card, or insert proper sim. If insert sim card warning card is damaged or have not enough good connection, if another, then this sim only is activated you first you must unlock it to work .

My cellphone can read my 3g sim card but I get no signal from SP.


Hello

I have to inform you that China sells alot of "unlocked" phones some of them are legit some are not.There are alot of conterfeit phones coming out of China you have to be careful. It's clear that the sim card is fine if you used it previously in another AT&T phone.

The problem is the phone itself, either A. it is not unlocked as it was advertised to be or B. the phone is bunk period....can you post the website you purchased this from ?

There is not much we can do from this site, AT&T was your best bet. Typically they will not deal with "unlocked" phones did you mention to them that you purchased it from China ?

Post back with the link to the site or any other questions you have for further assistance. Thank you for choosing Fixya!

Insert correct sim card


Un-Clocked is temporary, allows free txt and calls for a few minutes.
Un-Locked from a network is what will allow you to use any sim card on your phone.
