I have had the same problems with my phone and so has my cousin and 3 of his friends. I have been fighting with Tmobile about it since october. I am on my 2nd ID and it still isnt working properly.

If enough people with this problem complain, they have to do something besides change the SIM card or send me a new one.

My suggestion would be complain and get a different model altogether

How do you activate an unlocked Sidekick 3?


I have the same problem. But it says it could take up to 48 hours for the Welcome screen to appear. (Usually wouldn't take that long, usually it'll take about 1-3 hours)

Myfaves wont show up on my jump screen


Since you took your SIM and put it in her phone it probably needs time to sync with T-mobile server.  If your plan does not include data, it may be unable to connect to do this.  I would suggest calling T-Mobile and asking them to send an update to the phone.  I know when I first got my Sidekick 08 it took a few hours for MyFaves to show up even after it was activated, working and connected to the network.  You didn't mention how long ago you made this switch.  The best thing is just let it rest a few hours, make sure it has good signal and network connection.  It should come along.  (Did you have MyFaves on your previous phone?)

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...
