Used Sidekick I bought a used sidekick ID and a screen keeps popping up asking me to sign in with a password as someone else and until I do i can only use it as a phone...is there a way change who the phone is registered to? I rebooted the factory settings but it still did allow me to enter my own name.

My daughter has a sidekick slide tmobile phone. The phone was dropped and now it keeps saying to insert sim card which is already in there. We took out the sim card and re-inserted it again which did not work. We also rebooted it by taking out the sim card and holding down r and pressed the power. Does anyone have a solution that could help me? I have a frantic teenager on my hands!

Call your carrier and ask them to detach your device IMEI from the username locked in. Once that is done, hard reset without your SIM card inserted

    You can try the following procedure to clear the 3 digit code.



    This tip unlocks the 3 digit security lock.

    1. at the same time hold the menu button (top left) and the jump button (bottom left)
    2. This will bring you to the emergency screen (it gives you the option to make an emergency call)
    3. Open to the keypad and hold in the menu+shift+q buttons at the same time.
    4. The phone will reset and clear/unlock the security code



    Hope that helps

The screen light is not working


Jayboy93.

Bad news, the backlight is probably blown on you sidekick ID. You can replace it fairly easily if you can find a replacement.

Take a look here to see if any are available on ebay.

Sidekick ID LCD Screens for Sale

and here is a guide for replacing it. The guide is for a sidekick 3 but the procedure is exactly the same.

Sidekick id


YOu need to register the phone with t-mobile and sign up for a sidekick unlinited data plan. You can do it prepaid which is a dollar for everyday that you use it or 29.99 a month on a contract.

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...

Subject i have a t-mobile sidekick id


You can try a master reset.

1. Remove the battery and the SIM card from the device.
2. Flip the sidekick open; press and hold the letter 'r' on the keypad.
3. While holding the letter 'r', place the battery back in the device. DO NOT INSERT THE SIM CARD YET.
4. The sidekick will restart itself twice. Please make sure not to let the letter 'r' go until it has fully rebooted.
5. Once it has fully rebooted, remove the battery, re-insert the SIM card and battery and power up the device.
6. Once the device has fully rebooted, all prior information should be erased from the device and it should be restored back to the default factoy settings.
