    Hi scene_chicks! I didn't take it personally at all. I thank you for responding. Anyway, I bought a sidekick id yesterday. When I put my sim card from my previous phone in the sidekick, it told me I would have to wait 48 hours for activation. Is there any way that I can register my sim and get past the activation screen before then? I've tried menu+l it doesn't work.

Alrighty, thanks for not take this seriously. heh.

anyway. oh okay, i understand what your saying now.

so, may i ask what kind of phone did you have before the sidekick id?

and menu+L should be work that will it bypass and allow you to get out
of the waiting activation screen.
-as of i dont know why it doesnt work for you which it always have been worked.

get it back to me when you get this.

so i can be more assist you with this issue since because i have
a sidekick ID myself as well, but it was not in used right now, though because, i
currently use the O8.

Hello. i have a sidekick iD. i have called tmobile to try and have them activate it. they told me to press menu and l at the same time. it works and i have been doing that process for a year. but i want it...


i assumes you didnt have a data plan on your
tmobile account, yet?

if thats a case, then you would need to have
a data plan to activated it appropriately.

otherwise, it wont be activation which means
you would have to press menu + L manually
to bypass it even time you have the waiting activation
on the screen.

Code for sidekick


you'll have to call Tmobile when you 1st get onto the call press 0 & it will bring you to assistance faster.
if you want to just re-register your phone just press
Menu+1+0
and when you do that wait 2 seconds & hold down R until you see the 1st 4 symbols.
Good Luck

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.

SIDEKICK ID PROBLEM


1) Insert the Cingular 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.

It's very important to remember that you will only be able to use the SMS features of the Sidekick. Meaning, that you will not be able to use the internet, email, AIM/MSN/Yahoo messengers, or any of the data features. You will only be able to use the phone to call or text.

Waiting for activation


my service provider said that is because it is waiting to be linked to the internet... in order to use it as a phone until then.... press and hold down L and the menu button for three seconds...and it will unlock the phone aspect but you still have to wait the time period for internet use...
