Question about T-Mobile Sidekick ID Cellular Phone

1 Answer


Hello,  My sidekick is not getting activated.... The man at the store said it didn't have to be activated and just the internet wouldn't work and if I turned off the phone I would lose all of my information. He then clicked a few buttons and got to the menu screen and he said I could call and text from it but that was about it. I want to do that but he turned it off and I walked out of the store.
What are the buttons to hit to skip the activation screen!?!?

I have a side kick id unlocked off ebay

You are supposed to have a sidekick plan with t mobile. It will do this until you have this plan. But you can bypass that screen to call and text by holding down the top left button with 3 lines and the letter L on the keyboard at the same time.

Side kick id keys

Hi! Try doing the thing mentioned in article below-

If it still doesn't work then go to a t-mobile store (if its a t-mobile one) and they will surely do something and there are chances that they will supply you with a new or repaired one.

A replacement LCD Screen for the Sidekick ID runs from 45-60 dollars. That is on ebay which is the only place I have seen them for sale.

Here is a link for them:

You should be able to plug the usb cable into the port on the right side of the phone.. A screen will pop up on your computer saying new storage divice (not sure if you have a mac). You can open your files and send them to that storage divice. If the pop up does not appear go to my computer and look for the sidekick 3 drive then you can open your music player and right click a song and choose send to and the that storage divice. Let me know if you need help!
