How to open sidekick and get my simcard out

The SIM card door is covered by a rubber casing that peels back. Pull back the rubber flap to access the SIM card door. The flap that needs to be pulled back is the top left corner of the Sidekick above the Menu key.

Insert the SIM card into the slot with the gold contacts facing up and the cut corner facing out. When you release the SIM card, make sure it is locked into position behind the catch so it does not spring out. Replace the bumper, and then turn on the device.

It appears that inserting the SIM into a Sidekick is a rather tricky process. If the above does not completely solve your problem, here is a link to more details on inserting the SIM card.

A message pops up saying: Invalid or missing sim card. You can still make emergency calls if your service provider supposrts it. I have a sim card in their but i guess it doesn't read it?? HELP ME PL

Is this phone from the same service provider as your simcard? If not, not all phones are unlocked to work with the sim cards of rival companies. If both the phone and sim card are from the sam company, then you can have the company replace your sim card. They usually do this for free as a courtesy as long as you explain the problem to them. Hope this helps

The SIM card slot on a Sidekick II is located on the top left corner of the device, under the rubber "bumper". The support section of T-Mobile's website has a diagram showing how to insert the SIM in a Sidekick 2.

Blackjack no sim card or simcard error

I had the same issue, cleaning the contacts on the sim card did not help. BUT i went and got a new SIM, it did the same thing.. till i wedged some folded up paper into the sim slot on TOP of the sim card forcing it closer to the contacts. So far this is working for me atleast. good luck.
