    I also bought a used sidekick, but I have the unlock code. It is telling me that the device is already registered when I put my sim card in , so I'm unable to use it. Would a hard reset also solve my problem?

You can try a master reset.

1. Remove the battery and the SIM card from the device.
2. Flip the sidekick open; press and hold the letter 'r' on the keypad.
3. While holding the letter 'r', place the battery back in the device. DO NOT INSERT THE SIM CARD YET.
4. The sidekick will restart itself twice. Please make sure not to let the letter 'r' go until it has fully rebooted.
5. Once it has fully rebooted, remove the battery, re-insert the SIM card and battery and power up the device.
6. Once the device has fully rebooted, all prior information should be erased from the device and it should be restored back to the default factoy settings.

    Call your t-mobile and ask them to detach your device IMEI from the
    username locked in. Once that is done, hard reset without your SIM card
    inserted.

Locked sim card


May i ask what it says when it asks for a code as it may be your sidekick is not unlocked at all. If it is however unlocked, and i appolagise if i am wrong, it may be asking you for a phone unlock code which the previous owner put on it. You would need to contact the previous owner for this code as the mobile phone provider will NOT reset it for anyone else as there will be a security question to answer before they will reset it!!

Hope this helps

yep, you can do a master reset.

Want to clear out info on your Sidekick info (ie: to sell yours)?

1) Remove your sim card
2) From the jump screen: Menu -> Settings -> System Info
3) Press Menu+Shift+X Select OK to clear the flash.
4) Press Menu+Shift+R Select OK to clear the login information.
5) Perform a hard reset now. This will reboot the device.
To perform a hard reset:

SK2 - Press the power button and reset button at the same time. Unit will vibrate when reset. You can use a paper clip or similiar to hit the reset button located behind the screen.


6) Call your carrier and ask them to detach your device IMEI from the username locked in. Once that is done, hard reset without your SIM card inserted.

You're done.
