Which Sidekick is it? A Master Reset will take care of it,.

  • NOTE: A master reset restores the original factory settings and can erase all downloaded content, including ringtones, camera images, contacts stored in the handset memory, and Java™ applications. It does not erase data stored on the SIM card or memory card (if available). Back up all necessary data on the handset memory before proceeding.

    This is for the sidekick 2. It MAY work.


    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.

easy, remember what im about to tell you.
when you're at the privacy code part.
press&hold the top left button and bottom left button.
It'll take you to the emergency phone call part.
step 2 is to press&hold the top&bottom left buttons along with shift&q. it will say wipe out all data. At the bottom it'll say reset. Press that then it's done!
note:it will erase everything on the phone&the privacy lock!
If you want the rings&what not to be reseted go to the menu, system info&press and hold top&bottom left buttons along with shift and x. it'll ask to erase the flash settings. &that's all there is to it! You can do this to any sidekick!
