1. Insert your non-TMobile sim card 2. The phone display says "Enter the code". 3. On your Sidkick, press the "X" button. 4. You will see the menu. 5. Choose the left-up angle button. 6. Choose "setting"--->"network"--->"scan and select manually". 7. The phone will search for your network. 8. When your Sidekick finds your network, you can use the phone to make calls

To unlock it you need a subsidy code from tmobile - if your a tmobile client you can get for free - otherwise it costs about $75-80

SOURCE: unlocking a sidekick id

an easy way to make the phone work, but you can't text or access you sim but can make and recieve calls until you can get an unlock code is when it asks for the code, hit the big X button to cancel it out, then hit the upper left three lines button to bring up the menu. Go to settings, then network options, then scroll down to scan and select network manually. let it do it's thing and then pick Cingular or ATT sometimes one or the other shows up. And you can make and recieve calls with your number, I am still working on how to get the texting to work

Unlocking a Sidekick iD for Cingular?


Once your SIDEKICK is unlocked - it will ONLY work for TEXT and CALLS - no data - however, did you know that there is a cheaper solution, called yessim - cost is about $45 and can work on many phones, and be programmed in case you change devices.

SIDEKICK ID PROBLEM


1) Insert the Cingular SIM card into the back of the T-Mobile Sidekick ID (it should be located behind the battery).

2) Turn on the Sidekick ID, wait for the screens to load.

3) When the screen says "Waiting for Activation", hold the top left button (the "Menu" button with the three lines) on the Sidekick ID and hold the letter "L" on the QWERTY pad at the same time. After a few seconds, let go of the buttons.

4) If Step 3 is done correctly, the Sidekick should be directed to the jumpscreen and display all of the Menu's of the Sidekick ID.

It's very important to remember that you will only be able to use the SMS features of the Sidekick. Meaning, that you will not be able to use the internet, email, AIM/MSN/Yahoo messengers, or any of the data features. You will only be able to use the phone to call or text.

Try holding down Menu-jump to get to the emergency screen. Then hold down on menu-shift-Q and release. It will ask if you want to reset phone. IT WILL RESET AND DELETE EVERYTHING!!!!. It will be like new. Except sim. This works with sidekick 2, not sure with others.

How to unlock?


Its impossible to use the T-Mobile sidekick on any other network as it is designed only for use on the t-mobile network it cannot even be used on T-Mobile in a different country e.g. T-Mobile US sidekick cannot be used on T-Mobile UK , Even if somehow you managed to unlock the device then you still couldnt take it away from the network as it requires special features on the network to be used and those are only available on T-Mobile . So really if you want a sidekick you can only have it on T-Mobile.
