Unlock Code for Sidekick 3

I've looked everywhere for the code to unlock my Sidekick 3 and I still haven't found anything. There are many sites that have these codes and tell you how to unlock the phone for a small price. Is this the only way to unlock the phone? Does anyone know how to actually unlock a Sidekick 3?
Thanks for reading and thanks for the help....

    Are you sure you know what you're talking about???



    Because to my knowledge it is possible to do this. I have an unlocked iPhone that I used with T-Moblie and Verizon. I have a friend using an unlocked Sidekick 3 with Verizon, she bought it unlocked and we have also use it with AT&T.

1. out sim card in
2. start phone
it will tell u sim card locked it needs special code(the code u get to pay for) juys exit outta that get to the main menu
3.hit the top letf menu button and go all the way down to sim center if u dont allready have a sim pin then enter a new one if u have one change it then ur phone should go from the big X to some bars and a hollow phone icon after you do that hit the menu button again and go to network options then go down and hit (SCAN AND SELECT MANULLY) then chose what ever carrier you have i have at&t so i chose it after a few seconds the hollowed out phone icone should be colored in and u can now text and call

Hold the 3 line button on the top left corner push the letter L. this will let you go into the main screen and use it as a phone and text. i had to do this when i bought my "unlocked" sidekick from ebay/ whenever you turn off the phone and turn it back on, you will have to do this.

That's not entirely true, the FCC laws were changed so that the service providers hafta give you unlock codes for portability.

The Sidekick devices are specially made for T-Mobile, similar to the way that the iPhone only works with AT&T in the US. As such, it's not possible to unlock a Sidekick to work on another network. T-Mobile will give you a SIM subsidy unlock code for any of their other phones, assuming your account is eligible, but not for the Sidekick.

Any site claiming to be able to unlock your Sidekick is just a scam; or at best you risk breaking your phone by using any "hacks" they might provide.

    I used to work for T-Mobile in customer care, the department responsible for unlocking phones (ending about 6 months ago), and up through that time, they did not provide unlock codes for the Sidekick devices. If you already have one unlocked Sidekick, it was hacked -- the same way the iPhones must have been. T-Mobile has never unlocked a Sidekick nor sold one already unlocked, and neither AT&T nor Apple has sold a legally unlocked iPhone in the USA, nor have they provided any unlock codes to their customers.

    Such hacks for the Sidekick (and those you might find for the iPhone) might work, but then again they might not -- if you choose to find and use one, that is entirely on you. You risk turning your phone into an expensive paperweight; and I can guarantee that T-Mobile will not replace your Sidekick if you turn it into a brick by trying to hack it.

    Also, FixYa's terms of service prevent any expert from providing solutions that include links to "hacks" or anything else illegal (cell phone unlock hacks violate the DMCA). Therefore, my initial answer was the only appropriate response under FixYa's terms.

Now she is using it with ATT. You can get the SideKick unlock code from here.
If you need further help, please feel free to drop me a line and I will try my best to have your sidekick unlocked.

Unfortunately, T-Mobile cannot or will not unlock the Sidekick devices. This means that if you want it unlocked you will need to pay for it. There are third party companies and programs that claim to be able to unlock these devices, as you know most cost money. Sorry I couldn't be of more help.
