    Hi Al,

    Actually i did not experience the activation screen going away! Once you reboot! You'll just have to reprogram the phone,Time/daye,password etc...

    Thanks

I have the same problem. Will the activation screen go away? This seems to me that the phone is not unlocked as it is still trying to activate with the t-mobil carrier.

Try pushing Menu +L at the same time. It's supposed to speed up the activation.

I need a unlock code to unlock my T-mobile sidekick to use it for AT&T and someone online recommended and software unlock how do I do that?


The worst thing about buying phones online is that once someone gives you an locked phone, your money is pretty much gone down the drain. Unlocking a locked phone can be very difficult and sometimes impossible unless the manufacturer with the code has unlocked it already. I do not know of any software that can unlock phones, so my advice to you would be to, if you can, send the phone back.

3 digit combination


I use a sidekick Lx for At&t that I unlocked myself. When you start up your sidekick it should ask you for a network unlock or ask you to enable your sim card just click the cancel key on the top right of your device. Now click the top left menu button and go into your settings, and go to 'sim center' it'll ask you to enable your sim card again just enter a random 4 digit number and it'll tell you its wrong but thats ok, click ok and just cancel it out :) it'll then show you "disable sim lock" "change sim pin" change your sim pin to a number you'll remember because the way im showing you you'll have to do this every time you restart your phone (my sim pin was by default 1111) you can enter the same pin number for the old sim pin, and new sim pin options. Once you do that a white phone icon should appear on your screen underneath your time and date. Now, go back into your settings and go to network options, scan and select your network manually, and there you go :) Sorry though with all unlocked phones you'll only be able to make calls and text. No picture messaging sadly :( You need a T-mobile sidekick plan for all that :(

OK...THAT DIDN'T HELP


Sidekick II reset:
Drain your battery until your phone refuses to turn on, then charge it, the privacy lock should be off.

Press and hold the Menu key (the one with 3 lines) + the shift key and finally the "Q" key all at once.

Okay so you're at the privacy lock screen.
Okay press the Menu key and the Phone Mode key (the one with the circles) at the same time.
This should take you to emergency phone calls

Hold down the Back key (the one with the arrow) DON'T LET IT GO.

Now press MENU and PHONE MODE at the same time, now let go the BACK KEY
but
DO NOT let go MENU or PHONE MODE

Then press BACK again and let go of MENU and PHONE.
Now press MENU and PHONE again and then let go of BACK.

It takes like 3 times to unlock it
but it always works.
