Re: connectivity problems

Check your data plan. Those 3 things not working is an indication that the data plan is not active for your phone. Call t-mobile to verify

I have a iphone3Gs i can not connect to the internet. it keeps saying you are not connected to cellular data. how do i fix it. and i keep loosing signal

You Could Just Be In An Area With Bad Reception.
Like My Appartments Have The WORST Reception.
But You May Not HAve A Data Plan Or You May Have Run Out.
Try Calling Your Service Provider And Asking If You Have A Data Plan.
Connecting It To Wifi Will Give You Internet Though.

Do you have to have the internet for the sidekick or can you get it without the internet and if you do get it with out does it cost more?

You can use yout Sidekick without internet for text messaging and calls only. You'll not be able to download rigntones, games, apps or themes; you'll not be able to see your MyFaves in the screen (if you have a faves plan); you'll not be able to set a security code in the phone; you'll not be able to use any messenger. What is worse, without internet if your phone dies everything, including your contacts, get erased from the phone memory. Also some phones like Sidekick 2008 do not show the name of yout contact in incomming sms or ring with incoming sms without the data feature.

Why can't I have messenger on my TYN 2 phon3

Hi, My mother has the same phone.
Actually You can have messenger on your mobile. But you should have internet connected first. The Messenger works, don't listen to those people. But it could be the mobile carrier. But if you use the USB to the computer you can connect to the internet and have it work.
So, if you have more questions comment and I'll get back to you ASAP.

Good Luck!!

Internet on unlocked sidekick id

you cant. tmobile offers a specific web service to sidekicks that is different than others. at&t along with other carriers do not use this service, therefore you CANNOT use the web browser or instant messanger without a sidekick plan thru tmobile.

why would you want to use any other service anyway? tmobile is cheaper and offer better customer service.

Sidekick II problem

So there is a master reset on the sidekick II
open the screen and push it slighly left
there is a small hole with an arrow beside it
Use a paperclip, and one touch will do!
It powered right up. 6 calls to T-Mobile and only 1 person knew this! Ugh...
If I still have a problem it is likely a new SIM card and not a new $360 phone!

Hope this helps!
