Behind each screan usually on the right side, there is a small hole where only a small pin will fit. use some sort of needle to hold down the button while the phone is on and the phone will restart back to the main menu.

hope it works.

If t-mobile wont do anything about it... looking at your sidekick there should be a small hole (only large enough to stick some form of a needle in it) containing a button. Press this when the phone is powered on until it automatically restarts, when it reloads, it will load back to the main menu and you can reset the settings the way you like!

hope it works.

If the phone is "locked" in the sense that you can't use the menus or make calls, then you need to enter the security PIN you selected when you locked the phone. If you don't remember doing that, try the default PIN (1234). If you did lock it yourself but don't remember what the PIN was, call T-Mobile customer service at 611 and they can provide a special code to unlock the phone.

If you mean "locked" in the sense that you can only use it with T-Mobile and not other cell phone companies like AT&T, then I'm afraid that's something that's not going to change. T-Mobile does not provide codes to "unlock" Sidekicks to be used with other networks (the same way that AT&T won't "unlock" iPhones).

My Nokia N70from SFR , working with CALL IN EUROPE Sim card , I tried a MOBILIS Sim card ,it ask pin code , I put the Mobilis pin code , no result. I tried the pin code given to me by CALL in europe , no...


Pin Rejected or Sim Card Rejected ?
Of course sim card rejected otherwise you would have blocked the pin code and phone would have asked you the PUK code already but anyway !
Sim Card Rejected !
Options - There is a free unlocker
Click the link to download but you should have special cable ! It is called DKU-5

You do not have one or you could not manage to unlock ?
  1. Take your phone to a unlocker !
  2. Buy code online


Best Regards

My Sidekick LX is asking for a "Special Code"


once it says to enter your "special code" you hit cancel and it enables the sim pin. then you go to change sim pin, put in your old sim pin and put in a new one. then go to network settings and select "scan and select manually". once you find at&t click done and you can use the sidekick.

Phone request me to enter the sim code when i used Cambodia's SIM


not sure if this works with the 2008 but its something you can try, i put a sim card in my LX and was asking for a special code to unlock the phone, well right now tmobile isn't unlocking the sidekick, but you can trick the phone into using the sim card. First go to your settings, go to "SIM Center" and click on disable sim lock, enter in whatever your sim password is (if you dont know your sim password get your PUK (pin unblocking key) number which customer service will give you if you call 611, you can change that SIM pin by typing **05*PUKnumber*newpin*newpin#) now if you wanted to change it to "0123" if your puk was 9483992 its 7-9 digits you would type **05*9483992*0123*0123# now your sim pin is 0123. (trying not to make this super complicated) it will say sim pin not accepted click ok, now click change sim pin you can type the same sim pin 3 times if you want, 0123 0123 0123 now at the top of the screen bars will show up with a white phone beside it, go to Settings-Network Options-Scan and Select Manually, the SIM network should come up, click ok when it finds it and it will connect, now you can call and text on whatever sim you have in the phone

The special sim code for the sidekick lx


just ask the phone company provider for your PUK2 AND PUK codes.
when you get them go to the jump menu dial
**05*PUK*passcode*passcode#
the passcode is any 4-8 digits you'd like, that are NOT, AND I REPEAT N - O - T consecutive.
(for example 2736 is good whereas 1234 or 9876 is bad)
if it asks your for the code again put in the PUK2 then go to settings> network options goto the "scan and select manually" button and chose your carrier.

I need a special unlock code


More information please :)

Could be the PUK (Pin UnlocK code) which your provider will have. Could be a handset restriction code ie, if you are putting another carriers sim in a phone that is 'locked' to a specific carrier. Again, provider will help you with this on;

OR, could be anything, we really need more info, what screen, what is it asking, what are the surrounding circumstances.
