You can only get ringtones from the t-mobile catalog. You can put mp3 on your slide but not as ringtones.

I have this same problem..... my t-mobile advisers told me that i needed a sd card so i got 1 and it still didn't work but all i know to do is us ur usb cable, plug it up to your computer go to your music saved on your computer then click on sync and it will sync them to your phone and then you can go to ur music player after wards and listen to your songs but sadly you can not set them as your ring-tone!! sucks... i know!

The reason T-Mobile locked bluetooth and the sidekick ringtones is not because of hackers. Why do you think they didn't put a recording app on the phone? They made it this way because if you are not able to purchase ringtones from other sites, make them yourself, send them via bluetooth, or record them then YOU WILL HAVE TO BUY THEM FROM t-mobile. It is because T-Mobile is a greedy company and that's how it is, I have used them since the SK1, you can't a ringtone on your sidekick except from the catalog if you have T-Mobile. If you are on a different network outside of the US with the sidekick that is a different story.

Posted on Feb 23, 2008

I had just asked customer service, and they actually put a lock on the sidekicks and will begin to lock new phones to where you can only use bluetooth for the earpiece and calls.
They had problems with hackers and so they got rid of the capabilities and locked bluetooth.

I have a 2009 tmobile sidekick and i cant turn it on

You'll need to use the original AC charger that came with the phone as most computer USB ports are not capable of producing the power necessary to bring a battery up from being completely dead. If that doesn't work (your phone should be able to power up within an hour or two of plugging in the AC charger), you'll need to get a new battery.

All you need to do is call tmobile and have them do a master reset. This way you can register the APN to your own name and you can make up a new login. You just need to remember to call from a different phone when you do because Tmobile will ask you for numbers in the battery.

Internet on unlocked sidekick id

you cant. tmobile offers a specific web service to sidekicks that is different than others. at&t along with other carriers do not use this service, therefore you CANNOT use the web browser or instant messanger without a sidekick plan thru tmobile.

why would you want to use any other service anyway? tmobile is cheaper and offer better customer service.

to add ringtones and pictures you have to have the sidekick plan for your service. it comes with unlimited internet and free text. depending on what yur plan is depends on what the price is. my boyfriend pays a dollar a day for his prepaid sidekick plan which includes unlimited internet web and picture messages.

Sidekick slide

You have to download them from the download catalog. Once you do that, then you just click on the phone icon, open up the settings and click on general and go down until you see the incoming call ringtone, click it and scroll down the import, and select the song you want.

If you are wondering if there is a way to add in your own custom made ringtone to use, then as of now there isn't.
