May i ask what it says when it asks for a code as it may be your sidekick is not unlocked at all. If it is however unlocked, and i appolagise if i am wrong, it may be asking you for a phone unlock code which the previous owner put on it. You would need to contact the previous owner for this code as the mobile phone provider will NOT reset it for anyone else as there will be a security question to answer before they will reset it!!
Wait, when you bought the phone from the guy, did he factory reset it first? i.e. did you have to sign in with your gmail account before using it? If the answer to that is yes, then you shouldn't have to get the other guys details. Did you put in your username as email@example.com? Because you need the googlemail, not just gmail. If the answer to the first question was no, then you could try factory resetting the phone yourself by pressing home and end call together for about 20 seconds till a triangle with an exclamation point and a phone come up, then press alt+l, then select factory reset using the trackball. However this will erase all your text messages, as the phone will be just like it was when it was bought new.
Well the easiest way to start with a clean device is to perform a "Hard Reset".. This resets the phone back to the way it was when it came from the factory. It restores the Operating System BUT it deletes all the info YOU and the previous owner have put on. So before doing a hard reset move anything you want saved onto your PC. If there is nothing vital then go to:
Start>Settings>System(tab)> and click on clear storage.
All previous wifi and network settings will be removed. (All customisation and programs installed by you or the previous owner will also be removed)
If you need assistance in inputting the new settings then I suggest joining a support forum like www.xda-developers.com or Modaco etc.
Your HTC is also known as the Mogul or the Titan so on the forums it may be listed under these names.
To perform a hard reset
1. Press and hold the Comm Manager button and Voice Command
button on the device.
2. Keep the two buttons pressed, and at the same time, use the
stylus to lightly press and hold the RESET button.
Don't forget this puts everything back to factory condition. Don't put another password in will you. This info took me 2 hours to find.
