My name is joseph miller, ihad traded my friend phones for a sidekick lx the brown one. i am trying to sign - in to it from my sim card but it, will not letting me sign - in when i put my sim card in.


The last SIM card inserted married the phone. You can take the phone to a local provider and they have the unlock codes to unmarry the phone from the SIM. Then you will be able to put SIM in. This doesn't happen all of the time.

My sidekick slide cant read my new sim..........i need help...when ever i try am stuck at the sim center.


Hi, First request the phone's IMEI code by contacting customer service for T-Mobile. If you've been a customer long enough, T-Mobile may send the IMEI code, or the code identifying the specific phone, in a few days.Turn off the Sidekick Slide. Remove T-Mobile's SIM card, which is located near the battery. Insert the new provider's SIM card.Turn the Sidekick Slide back on. The phone will detect the new code and ask for the IMEI code. Enter the code. Now the Sidekick will operate using the new network.
Thank you

HOW DO I DELETE EVERYTHING ON MY SIDEKICK 08


Dear Friend,
  1. Remove the battery and the SIM card from your SideKick .
  2. Flip the sidekick open; press and hold the letter 'r' on the keypad.
  3. While holding the letter 'r' on your SideKick , place the battery back in the device. DO NOT INSERT THE SIM CARD YET INTO YOUR SIDEKICK.
  4. The sidekick will restart itself twice. Please make sure not to let the letter 'r' go until it has fully rebooted.
  5. Once your cell phone has fully been rebooted, remove the battery, re-insert the SIM card and battery and power up the SideKick.
  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.
I hope This Helped You... If this Helped you Do RATE ME..... I like TO KNOW your Result / FEEDBACK Thanks For Using FixYa..

T-Mobile sidekick II keeps resetting


I had this problem with a new phone, and T-mobile gave me the following instructions.

Try this first:
1) Turn on phone with SIM chip in it.
2)hold down the "@" + "1" + "0" down simultaneously until phone turns off, then back on again. This should fix the problem. otherwise try this,

1) remove battery and SIM.

2) press and hold down the "w" key, and while holding it down insert the battery only.

3)A little face will appear on the screen, then a reboot button. Press the reboot button. Once the phone reboots, insert the SIM. One of those two should fix the problem.

My Sidekick LX is asking for a "Special Code"


once it says to enter your "special code" you hit cancel and it enables the sim pin. then you go to change sim pin, put in your old sim pin and put in a new one. then go to network settings and select "scan and select manually". once you find at&t click done and you can use the sidekick.

Sorry, the sidekick II doesn't have a battery that can be pulled out. You need to pull back the bumper on one side to access the sim card slot.

    1. Follow these instructions to remove your operator-supplied SIM card from your device:
    2. Turn off your device by pressing the power on/off key.
    • Expose the SIM card slot by peeling back the bumper from the top-left edge of the device: t02005-2.jpg
    • Press down on the silver "catch" and the SIM card will spring out of its slot. Remove the SIM card carefully. (Always handle your SIM card carefully since the card and gold contacts can be easily damaged by scratches or bends. Be sure to keep SIM cards out of reach of small children.)

    1. Now insert the SIM card containing the contacts you want to import:
    2. Insert the SIM card into its slot with the gold contacts facing up and the cut corner facing out. t02005-1.jpg
    • When you release the SIM card make sure it is locked into position behind the catch so it doesn't spring out.
    • Replace the bumper and turn on your device.

    Sidekick


    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.
